Whole Body Infrared Light Therapy Explained 

FIR HEAT IS FELT TO PRODUCE THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS IN THE FOLLOWING:

BRAIN
Short-term memory improved Accelerated repair in brain contusions
Cerebral hemorrhages – healing both speeds up and is significantly enhanced

COLLAGEN TISSUES
Ligaments Joint capsules Tendons
Fascia Synovium Increases range of motion
Scarred, thickened or contracted tissues
Increases extensibility of collagen tissues

BODY ACIDITY
Reduces acidity in the body (FIR causes fruit to ripen faster by reducing acidity)

NERVES
Neuresthenia Adjusts autonomic nerve function
Reduces over-stimulation of sensory nerves

CELLS
Attracts calcium ions to the cellular level
Promotes adhesion and osmosis of water molecules across the cellular membrane
Stimulates enzyme activity

JOINTS
Assists in reduction of swelling and inflammation by improving lymph flow
Decreases joint stiffness directly

PAIN RELIEF
Neuralgia Headache Pain during menstruation
May lead to increased endorphin production, which reduces pain

CONDITIONS AFFECTED BY CIRCULATION
Increases blood flow by promoting dilation of capillaries
Clogged capillary vessels Hypertension Arteriosclerosis
High blood pressure Low blood pressure Coronary artery disease
Arthritis Sciatica Backaches
Hemorrhoids Nervous tension Diabetes
Varicose veins Neuritis Bursitis
Rheumatism Strained muscles Fatigue
Stretch marks Menstrual cramps Upset stomach
Piles Poor peripheral circulation

CARDIOVASCULAR
Atherosclerosis (thickening of artery walls due to fatty deposits)
Septic shock (dangerous drop of blood pressure)
Due to the deep penetration over 1-1/2″ into the skin of the infrared rays generated by the FIR dome, there is a healing effect deep in the muscular tissues and the internal organs. The body responds to this deep healing affect as a hypothalamic-induced increase in both heart volume and rate. Research by NASA in the early 1980’s led to the conclusion that infrared stimulation of cardiovascular function would be the ideal way to maintain cardiovascular conditioning in American astronauts during long space flights. As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, and blood flow rises.

INFLAMMATORY INFILTRATES, EDEMA AND EXUDATES
Edema of the joints Inflammation of joints Tendinitis
Sprain Joint stiffness Peripheral Occlusive Disease
Gout
Speeds up healing – treatment with infrared has been so successful that hospital stays were reported to have been reduced by 25%.

CANCER
Cancer therapy Cancer of the tongue
Radiation sickness – relieves signs & symptoms
Cancer pain – relieved in later stages of cancer
FIR heat can penetrate through the body and kill cancerous cells

Cancerous cells cannot exist if blood circulation is smooth. Good circulation in the capillaries leaves no room for a cancerous cell to settle down. (A cancerous cell has to settle down so it can proliferate.) FIR helps capillaries to expand, improving circulation. The cancer cell also has a weakness: heat above 42 deg C can kill it. FIR heat can penetrate through the body and kill cancerous cells. FIR treatment raises body temperature. FIR therapy can alleviate pain and prolong life when conventional cancer treatment fails. Surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy are considered detrimental to health – they are invasive treatments. FIR therapy and immuno-therapy are regarded as non-invasive. FIR is extremely beneficial.

DENTISTRY
Dr. John Tate, DDS, says, “I have used the FIR dome with over fifty high risk surgical cases without complication or dry sockets on 92% of the patients. The dome is placed over the patient in my office a half hour before surgery and then a half hour after surgery to promote an immune response. The patient then takes the dome home and applies the technology at home for two hours a day for the next three days. They get what we call complete healing. The macrophages produce collagen necessary to stimulate the fibroblasts, and the tissue of the fibroblasts then will stimulate the osteoblast, which is bone. That is where the bone forms – and it starts in the first three days – but it takes about six months for complete healing. The two main cells we need in dentistry and in surgery around the bone area are the macrophages and the neutrophils.” (which are activated by far infrared heat).

“The macrophage is called the “pac man” of the immune system. The macrophage is a cell that engulfs and digests microorganisms. Everything starts with the macrophage – “macro” meaning big and “phage” meaning eater. So we have a big eater here. The tentacle on the macrophage grabs the staphylococci and a bacillus rod, and that macrophage extends a pseudo paw to get the bacteria that is now invading our blood!”

“I elected to use the FIR dome for these reasons:
1. Safety. The FIR produces a wave length that is identical to the body’s own wave length by body heat, and that is at the 8-to-10-micron level, so it is safe.
2. Penetration. FIR penetrates 1-1/2″ so this is an advantage to the dental surgeon who deals with bone as well as soft tissue.
3. Area covered. The unique ceramic construction of the FIR dome covers a large area of the body, with a large coverage in a short period of time. Since there is a 160-degree angle, the penetration and the intensity of the dome produces a strong effect.
4. One hour’s use of the FIR dome for five days would produce a large body production of nitric oxide gas. It will also increase circulation, reduce pain and swelling and promote faster healing. That has been my observation with about 50 patients now. They tell me, ‘Doc, I don’t need any more antibiotics; I am healing; I feel good; I don’t have any swelling.’”

IMMUNE SYSTEM
Pelvic infection Post-surgical infection
Toe-and-finger-nail fungus
Scleraderma (an autoimmune disease where collagen builds up and healing cannot take place because the circulation can’t get to the area due to the buildup of the collagen)
Infrared energy appears capable of potentiating functions of white blood cells. More white blood cells means greater immune function and resistance to disease and viruses.

There is an immune response facilitated by the photons of the FIR technology that turns on the enzyme system, particularly the nitric oxide synthase enzyme. It is well established medically that this is the mechanism involved in the FIR technology.

WEIGHT LOSS
Direct excretion of fat. Burns calories Increases metabolism
Weight loss can come through the energy use needed to produce sweating
Cellulite (a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes, which are trapped in pockets below the skin) A FIR dome will assist this condition, as profuse sweating helps clear it from the body. FIR heat can be significantly more effective than other heat methods, due to the heat penetration being twice the depth into cellulite.

As a FIR dome is an unsurpassed expeller of toxins, it is also a great way to get rid of any fat our bodies are using to dilute toxins we are storing. Two of the highest caloric output forms of exercise are rowing and marathon running. Peak output in these sports burns about 600 calories in 30 minutes. Infrared use may better this effect by burning some 900 calories in a 30-minute session. Thus Infrared might stimulate the consumption of energy equal to that expended in a 6.9 mile run during only a single session. The cleansing and purifying benefits attributed to the traditional sweat lodges are now available for daily purification without the time-consuming set-up process that a sweat lodge requires.

EXERCISE AND CONDITIONING EFFECT
An infrared system can play a pivotal role in both weight control and cardiovascular conditioning. The Infrared dome makes it possible for people in wheelchairs, or those who are otherwise unable to exert themselves or who won’t follow through on an exercise and conditioning program to achieve a cardiovascular training effect. This also allows for more variety in any ongoing training program. “Regular use may be as effective, as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise.”

For athletes, the FIR dome helps the oxygen-debt to be repaid more quickly. The FIR dome is great for warming up before stretching or starting any vigorous activity. Allow the FIR rays to pour right through your clothing until you just begin to break a sweat. Now you are pre-warmed for stretching, running, skiing in cold weather. This should help to prevent injuries.

CASE STUDY
Rheumatoid arthritis in a 14-year-old Swedish girl who couldn’t walk comfortably downstairs due to knee pain since she had been eight years old. Her rheumatologists told her mother that she would be in a wheelchair within two years. However, after three infrared treatments she began to become more agile and subsequently took up folk dancing, without the aid of the conventional approach in her recovery.
