Some of you have seen our amazing waterfall pictures on Facebook, but if you haven’t, take a look….maybe that’s one reason both places, Ithaca and Costa Rica, feel so good – negative ions!
Like a moth to a flame, we love to sit by waterfalls, rivers, the ocean. We can’t wait to get out of the crowded city, the stuffy building.
Some interesting facts:
Negative ions per cubic centimeter
By a waterfall – 95,000-450,000
In a city – 100-2000,
In an airconditioned building – 0-20
Our waterfall in Costa Rica
Some research has found negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, increase the serotonin levels helping relieve depression, stress, & anxiety, increase the production of melatonin regulating sleep cycles, increase the hemoglobin in the blood, helping the healing process.
Come and enjoy our waterfall in Costa Rica!
