HOW THE PROCESS EVOLVES
waves reach into the cell and create water molecule resonance
• The waves then produce atomic molecule resonance
• Energy conversion occurs through absorption
• It forms an effect on the heart
• It enters to the subcutaneous cell layer
• Temperature is elevated
• Capillary dilation takes place
• Extravasated blood and congested toxins are excreted
• Cells are activated
• Organ cells are repaired and protected
• The formation of enzymes is promoted
When FIR penetrates our bodies it can be converted into
the appropriate energy. This activates the self-regulating
systems in our living tissue so as to alleviate the bodily
imbalance and lead to recovery. It is not only a beneficial
health therapy, but can also be a substitute for other therapeutic
modalities. Because of its heat penetration property, FIR
radiates to the meridian points of the body.
Treatments generally last 20 minutes to an hour, but
it does not hurt to use it longer. Initially, relief
is only temporary, but with repeated treatments
the duration of relief becomes longer and eventually becomes lasting.
Today, scientists and physicians are studying specific
wavelengths of light, such as Far Infrared, to understand
their therapeutic effects on our bodies.
The human body is
nourished directly by the stimulation of sunlight or nourished indirectly
by eating foods, drinking fluids, or breathing air that has been vitalized
the sun’s light energy.
If certain wavelengths are missing in the light we receive,
the body cannot fully absorb certain nutrients. The
result is that, even with
nutrition, the body is malnourished without exposure to sufficient
light. Sunlight increases
the ability of the lungs to absorb more vital oxygen, as well as the
capacity to carry and deliver it. Oxygen deficiency has been readily linked
to a host of illnesses and discomforts ranging from chronic fatigue to cancer.
When near infrared (NIR) waves heat organic substances
the surface gets hotter than the interior, and the
interior gets heated by conduction
from the surface.
By contrast, far infrared (FIR) penetrates deeply with a very uniform
warming effect. Recent studies show that not enough illumination
fatigue, depression, suppressed immune function, hair loss, skin
damage. Lack of a balanced
spectrum of light contributed to loss of muscle tone and strength.
Ceramic Heater Benefits
The Infrared protocol was instituted after conventional
management protocols were shown to be ineffective in wound
healing. The rate and quality of healing of these previously
refractory wounds, following use of FIR energy, may be related
to local increases in nitric oxide concentration. Increases
in nitric oxide previously have been demonstrated to correlate
with vasodilatory and anabolic responses.
Substances harmful to the human body are excreted through sweat and
oil glands, such as carcinogenic heavy metals, toxic substances
from food processing, lactic acid, nonesterified fatty
acids, fat and subcutaneous fat which cause fatigue and aging, as well
as hypertension caused by sodium ions which trigger uric acid pain.
Short-term memory improved
Accelerated repair in brain contusions
Cerebral hemorrhages - healing both speeds up and is significantly enhanced
Fascia Synovium Increases range of motion
Scarred, thickened or contracted tissues
Increases extensibility of collagen tissues
Reduces acidity in the body (FIR causes fruit to ripen faster by reducing acidity)
Neuresthenia Adjusts autonomic nerve function
Reduces over-stimulation of sensory nerves
Attracts calcium ions to the cellular level
Promotes adhesion and osmosis of water molecules across the cellular membrane
Stimulates enzyme activity
Assists in reduction of swelling and inflammation by improving lymph flow
Decreases joint stiffness directly
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
High blood pressure
Low blood pressure
Coronary artery disease
Poor peripheral circulation
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
Peripheral Occlusive Disease
Speeds up healing - treatment with infrared has been so successful that hospital
stays were reported to have been reduced by 25%.
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.
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:
- Safety. The FIR produces a wave length that is identical to the
own wave length by body heat, and that is at the 8-to-10-micron level, so it
- Penetration. FIR penetrates 1-1/2" so this is an advantage to the dental
surgeon who deals with bone as well as soft tissue.
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,
penetration and the
intensity of the dome produces
a strong effect.
- One hour’s
use of the FIR dome for five days would produce a large body
of nitric oxide gas. It will also increase
circulation, reduce pain and swelling and promote
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.’”
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
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

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.
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.
If you have a disease or are using any prescription drugs, be certain to consult
with a primary-care physician before use. Some authorities consider its use
inadvisable with systemic lupus, erythematosis, chronically hot and swollen
joints, enclosed infections, predisposition to hemorrhage, multiple sclerosis,
or during pregnancy. If you have a recent (acute) joint injury it should
not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury. If you have metal pins,
rods, artificial joints or other surgical or silicone implants, consult your
surgeon prior to using FIR. (Metal pins, rods, etc. generally reflect infrared
rays.) FIR use must be discontinued if you experience pain near any implants.
Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily
increase their menstrual flow.
