Infrared Science

Japanese and Chinese researchers have completed huge amounts of research on far infrared medical treatments and have found many discoveries. In Japan, there is an 'Infrared society' made up of medical doctors and therapists dedicated to further Far Infrared research. Their findings support the great health benefits of Far Infrared therapy as a method of healing.

Dr. Tadashi Ishikawa, a member of the Research and Development Department of Fuji Medical, got a patent in 1965 for a zirconia ceramic infrared heater used in the first healing infrared systems. Doctors in Japan were the only ones using infrared therapy for 14 years. In 1979, they were finally safe for public use. The technique has been further refined into far infrared therapy devices that have been sold in the USA since 1981.

Understanding Infrared Therapy

We have a long way to go in terms of our knowledge of the beneficial effects of infrared therapy. It does seem clear however, that there are great benefits in the use of infrared heat on the skin, blood circulation and immune system where the mechanisms of the body balance have been disrupted. Infrared therapyis what is believed to be the basis of the healing powers of Qi Gong masters say the device found to be most efficient to date is the thermotherapy, also known as infrared therapy.

  NASA's Research on Infrared Therapy

NASA was the one who discovered the health benefits of using infrared therapy and has used it ever since in its space shuttles. They found infrared heat to improve their astronauts immune systems. They couldn't risk one astronaut becoming ill and infecting everyone else. Too much was and still is at stake on a space mission.

Your skin can absorb infrared light and use its energy to start cellular regeneration. Infrared light therapy, first researched by NASA in the 1960's to help their astronauts stay healthy, will reverse the signs of aging and help you look younger without conventional common treatments that burn and are harsh and is certainly less expensive and intrusive than plastic surgery. Tightening of the skin, treat acne and blemishes, vanishing wrinkles, vanishing blemishes, and shrinking of pore size are achieved with infrared therapyt. In addition, a biomat can be used to effectively treat muscle and joint aches, sprained muscles, back pain, muscle spasms, It can also alleviate arthritis pain. Depending on session duration, noticeable changes are commonly seen within 30-45 days; and the skin continues to heal itself as long as you continue to use the therapy.

Doctors at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee discovered the healing power of infrared heat with the help of technology NASA built. Doctors are examining how infrared therapy helps to heal wounds, such as bad burns and severe mouth sores caused by chemo and radiation. The study includes human trials, approved by the U.S.F.D.A and funded by a NASA.

Infrared Therapy and the Human Body

Infrared light therapy captures the healing abilities of infrared light and turns it into a pervasive heat that penetrates the human body and heats from the inside out. When infrared heat is delivered to injuries and other painful areas of the body and it rapidly increases blood circulation, reducing inflammation and promoting faster healing.

Nitric oxide is the key to the healing power of infrared therapy. This gas is short-lived and is crucial to the health of the arteries in your body. Infrared energy produces the release of nitric oxide, which enhances blood flow in the body. This increase in blood flow brings oxygen and nutrients to injuries, aches and pains, resulting in faster healing. It also reduces inflammation.

After just 30 minutes of treatment, blood flow is boosted by 400 percent, and this increase in circulation continues for several hours after using the Biomat. The best benefits of infrared light therapy are achieved with multiple treatment sessions.

More Benefits of Infrared Therapy

Infrared Therapy gently expands the capillaries in the body increasing blood flow which then increases the oxygenation and rejuvenation of your actual blood, detoxing it and increasing its benefits to your organs. It boosts your immune system, creating more white blood cells and killer T-cells. Infrared therapy increases the enzyme activity in your digestive tract. One hour of infrared therapy can burn as much as 900 calories. Heart studies done by The Mayo Clinic and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that infrared therapy improved blood vessel functioning in high-cholesterol, diabetes and smoking patients. The therapy also was found to lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar, and help in weight loss.

Comparison between Heating Pad and Biomat
After using a normal heating pad for 10 minutes
only the outer surface of the skin is warm.
After 5 minutes using Far Infrared Rays, the
skin is penetrated 80 times deeper than with
the heating pad.

The Infrared Rays cause the molecules inside the mitochondria of the cell to resonate and be activated, warming you from within. Raising the temperature of the body by just one degree will boost your immune system by 40%

Unlike a heating pad, the Amethyst Biomat does not get hot when you turn it on. However, if you lie down on the Amethyst Biomat, it warms the inside of your body and the part of the pad touching your skin gets warm. When any part of the pad gets higher than the selected temperature, the sheet current is cut off by thermal sensors distributed throughout the Biomat. When the Amethyst Biomat reaches higher than the selected temperature, the the Negative Ions come on and will stay on until the Biomat needs to raise the temperature. It comes with an controller that allows you to adjust the desired temperature and running time (between 2, 4, 8 or 12 hours). As an added safety precaution, when the controller is set to 122 F or higher, it will automatically step down to 113 F after 4 hours. Far Infrared Rays penetrate 6 inches into the body. Therefore, these rays not only benefit the muscles on the surface of the body, but all cells including blood vessels, lymph glands, and nerves in the deepest pats of the body..
