Health Benefits of Far Infrared

Healing with heat is as old as the hills

From Finnish saunas to sweat lodges the power of heat to stimulate healing and rejuvenation is universally known. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine would often prescribe hot baths to create an artificial fever to cure disease.   We are naturally drawn to the sun for its warmth, but also for the life giving qualities of Far Infrared it transmits.

Far Infrared is part of the light spectrum not visible to the human eye. While we cannot see Far Infra Red Rays (FIR) we can feel them as heat. Unlike other forms of invisible light such as Gamma rays, Ultra Violet and X rays, Far Infrared radiation is completely safe and essential for health.

All plants, animals and humans generate Far Infrared to some degree. In Chinese Medicine this ‘warm’ energy, known as yang Qi is associated with good immunity, metabolism and a sense of vitality. However, as we age the amount of internal heat tends to decline making us more venerable to disease and poor states of health.

To counter the effects of aging Asian cultures developed yogic and folk practices for building yang energy as a way of preserving health into old age.  Until recently these ancient practices were often kept secret within families or close-knit spiritual communities.

Sun exposure is the most beneficial source of Far Infrared.   However, modern living often makes it difficult to supplement Far Infrared since most of us now spend 90% or more of our time indoors.  Fortunately, the Biomat makes it easy and convenient for you to reap the many health rewards of Far Infrared in the comfort of your own home, regardless if the sun is shining or not.

Far Infrared and thermal conversion

Beginning in the 1960s research in Germany and Japan has resulted in a wide range of Far Infrared products and applications for health. The Biomat is based on technology developed for NASA vehicles to keep astronauts safe and healthy while on long missions in space.

The Biomat generates Far Infrared Rays (FIR) by passing pulsed DC current through a Japanese Kurera Super Fiber made of a special carbon and ceramic matrix. The effect of Far Infra Red is then greatly magnified by the amethyst surface layer of the Biomat, which converts Far Infrared into a long waveform (8-12 microns), penetrating up to 6’ into the body.

Rather than heating the air or surface of the body to create a sensation of warmth, long wave Far Infrared produces heat by stimulating cellular and sub atomic activity inside the body.   The process is sometimes call thermal conversion.

By reaching the deeper structures of the body such as the endocrine glands, stabilizing muscles, nerves, blood vessels, lymph system, and internal organs long wave Far Infrared from the Biomat can stimulate healing on many levels at once.

While there are many other forms of thermotherapy utilizing heat to heal, the Biomat is distinctly gentle and easy to use. Traditional Finnish and Far Infra saunas are expensive and in some cases dangerous if used improperly due to the potential for heat shock or exposure to high level of harmful Electro Magnetic Frequencies (EMF).

On the contrary, the radiant heat from a Biomat is safe and effective for pain, similar in sensation to a soothing hot stone massage.

In general Far Infrared has been shown to have the following health benefits:

  • Improved immune function by stimulating the production of Natural T killer cells and white blood cells
  • Improved peripheral blood circulation
  • Increased metabolism and enzyme activity
  • Relief from minor aches and pains, including joint pain
  • Relaxing chronic muscle tension
  • Reduced stress
  • Improved energy and mood

No ordinary heating pad

Far Infrared has many health applications and offers some hope for a better way of managing or even delaying common complaints associated with the process of aging.

The Biomat is a natural, drug free option for taking control of your health. If you are curious to experience the healing benefits of Far Infrared why not try a Biomat risk free for 7 days.
