Okay, let’s try to explain this without getting really technical. For those of you who want lots of facts and figures, they’re out there on this technology. I want to try to make you understand what far infrared therapy is, but more than that, I want you to see the benefits. I go into my domes as many times a day as possible. I love the feel of it. I curl up in there like a big, ol, pussycat in the sunlit window. We get the same effect as the kitty does, except our equipment penetrates deeper.
Everything in creation is made up of electromagnetic energy vibrating at different frequencies that correspond to sound, light and color. The existence of electromagnetic fields around every object in the world is a scientifically proven fact. The Chinese refer to this energy as ‘Chi’ (pronounced Chee), the vital life force energy of the Universe, which flows through the pathways of all living things.
Western medical science is now beginning to take a serious look at ancient Far Eastern traditions that focus on this energy in order to maintain health and wellness, mentally, physically and emotionally.
Far-infrared rays are part of the sunlight spectrum which is invisible to the naked eye. It’s also known as Biogenetic rays (between 6 to 14 microns). Biogenetics rays have been proven by scientists to promote the growth and health of living cells especially in plants, animals and human beings.
Far Infrared Rays are a specific wave length of light from the sun that are the safest and most beneficial rays. Far Infrared Rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum just below red light rays. Far Infrared Rays are not visible to the human eye but can be seen with special cameras.
Far Infrared Rays are perceived as a gentle, comfortable type of radiant heat. Radiant heat is a simple form of energy that heats objects directly through a process called conversion without heating the air in between.
Some research by NASA indicates that within the broad infrared spectrum, the rays in the 8-14 Micron range are the FIR rays from the sun that safely reach the earth’s service. The most effective in penetrating the human body and the most beneficial to the human body are in the 8-10 Micron Range. Due to this comfort and FIR’s ability to penetrate deep into our body and elevate the body’s surface temperature, it locally increases circulation and reduces pain, which allows you to feel better.
When we feel hot, we seek shade. When we feel cold , we seek sunshine to warm us. We all desire a comfortable temperature. This comfortable temperature that we seek is synchronized with a comfortable energy frequency or ‘wavelength’. Human bodies are a natural thermal source. According to physicists, any thermal therapy source can radiate FIR. The human body radiates FIR at a wavelength which happens to be 8-14 microns.
The human body’s normal temperature is 98.6 degrees, with most of our body heat being radiated away from our bodies at an 8-10 micron wave-length. The heat that is leaving our bodies is far infrared heat. We are constantly losing body heat and then reproducing it. If you don’t believe me, think about this, Why does a room full of people get hot? The heat exiting our bodies, which is being emitted into the room, is far infrared heat.
Some of us have lower body temperatures. Most people think that this isn’t a big deal, that this doesn’t affect our bodily functions, except that we may get colder a little faster than most people. But, Dr. Samuel Wilson, figured out that folks who have lower body temperatures, have systems that do not function as well as people who have normal body temperatures. Therefore everything from your weight and energy to your thyroid and liver functions are involved. We need to raise our body temperatures for our body to work properly. Talking from experience, medicines usually do not accomplish this. What medicines do accomplish, is to toxify your system.
When living things absorb FIR at 8-14 micron wavelength, it causes a vibrating movement of molecules in living tissue, which produces an increase in heat energy, which then activates cells and enhances the metabolism. Many organic molecules have the same vibration frequency as FIR.
Currently, there are a wide variety of medical applications beginning to use thermal therapy and / or the Far Infrared (FIR) technology because of its outstanding properties and its ability to actually increase the body tissue’s regenerative ability. Thus, it is possible to revitalize human cells by warming them from the inside. Far Infrared Rays also have the ability to penetrate and elevate the temperature of the subcutaneous layers of our bodies. FIR penetrates our bodies 4-5 centimeters into the dermis (middle layer of skin) and will increase the subcutaneous temperature to approximately 107 degrees Fahrenheit! These principles enable the expansion of blood capillaries. The stimulation of blood circulation, an increase in your metabolism between blood and tissue promotes tissue regeneration and reduces cramping. It also penetrates from the muscles into the blood vessels, lymphatic glands, and nerves. It also adjusts the autonomic nerve function and reduces the over stimulation of sensory nerves. Because of all these benefits, it is the perfect health builder in maintaining one’s general health.
