Preventing diseases and maximizing our performances as we age, requires a holistic approach in maintaining a toxic free, alkaline environment throughout the body. However this is not as easy done as said to accomplish in our high-tech, highly polluted and stressful daily living.
The most practical way to combat pathogens and accumulation of heavy metals, toxic waste and parasites is regular detoxification to help our body & mind to meet up with this challenge.
Far Infrared Therapy utilizes light wavelengths below the frequency of visible red light. Though the light is not visible to the human eye, it can be felt as heat. Far Infrared (FIR) penetrates below the skin and can be used as a medical therapy.
FIR therapy is light or heat therapy that has been found to increase blood flow and white blood cell function. FIR light helps remove toxins from the body and speeds the healing of tissues. FIR increases the metabolic rate and stimulates the hypothalamus. The FDA has approved far infrared lights to keep newborn infants warm in hospitals.
The toxins in silicon breast implants may be removed by use of FIR therapy.
FIR therapy creates a low fever state, with a one to three degree rise in body temperature. This stimulates the production of white blood cells and killer T cells, thereby improving immunity.
Many diseases respond to FIR therapy. Arthritis, bursitis and rheumatism are improved by the heat element. Far infrared helps burn calories and reduce obesity. FIR has been shown to reduce symptoms of Raynaud's syndrome, Lupus, and Chronic Fatigue.
The human body is capable of absorbing infrared light wavelengths between 3 and 50 microns. The most beneficial have been found to be the waves between 6 and 14 microns, with the best absorption rate at 9.4 microns. The rays penetrate into the body to a depth of three inches (~75 mm), providing deep heating to muscles and organs. The light dilates blood vessels, thereby increasing oxygen flow to the joints and muscles and reducing pain. Improved blood flow to the lymph reduces inflammation.
When the body is exposed to 9.4 microns of far infrared waves, the water molecules in the body vibrate. The vibration causes the ion bonds to break down, allowing for the trapped gases of toxins such as carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide to be eliminated. Claims have been made FIR Therapy can assist the removal of wide variety of heavy metals and toxic waste from the body, including lead, arsenic, mercury, copper, cadmium, urea, nicotine, and the residue of prescription drugs.
