Far Infrared Thermal Therapy Medical Facts
NOTE: Information presented herein may not
to be randomly used or implied towards any
far infrared unit, fabric or other far
infrared product available to the public.
1) Far Infrared
heat therapy general properties include the
promotion of circulation, reduction and relief of
pain, swelling and inflammation, elimination of
serious toxins such as heavy metals, relaxation
2) German medical
researchers concluded one session of far infrared
thermal therapy for over 1 hour can have
significant reduction of blood pressure thanks to
a persistent peripheral vessels dilation. They
also noted that blood viscosity was improved.
After 1 hour of far infrared radiance, there is a
significant decrease of blood pressure - cardiac
ejection resistance - total peripheral resistance
- and significant increase of heart rate,
stroke volume, cardiac output, and ejection
fraction.- Citation needed.
3) Popular Far
Infrared lasers for cosmetic use:
"Far Infrared lasers such as Smoothbeam or
CoolTouch, are becoming a very popular method to
treat acne, particularly in very resistant cases.
They seem to work by shrinking the sebaceous
glands, and you get relatively quick results. They
hurt like hell though." - Jeffey Dover, MD,
Boston, ELLE Magazine March 2004
Far Infrared heat is
reported to help in opening and unclogging pores
and aid in healing acne and scars thru tissue
According to the "Clayton's Electrotherapy, 9th
Edition", Far Infrared radiation is the only
antidote to excessive ultraviolet radiation.
5) Far Infrared
Thermal Therapy and Electromagnetic Fields (EMF):
There have been reports detailing the hazards of
exposure to certain kinds of electromagnetic
fields, such as those from high-tension power
lines, cell phones, or from computer display
terminals. Far Infrared heating units have been
tested in Japan and found free of toxic
electromagnetic fields. The Swedish National
Institute of Radiation Protection has also
concluded that Far Infrared heaters are not
dangerous. Instead, Japanese researchers have
reported that Far Infrared radiant heat antidotes
the negative effects of toxic electromagnetic
6) CHI energy
also known as Qi - the life force energy present
within every living thing:
"The Qi that a Qigong master releases is called
external Qi whereas the Qi that circulates within
the body is called internal Qi. When a person is
sick, the flow of Qi internally can be interrupted
and various organs might malfunction. If proper
information can be delivered inside the body via
other media, or if new information can be
generated within the body through exercise by
patients themselves (the
Sun Ancon Chi Machine stimulates Chi),
the organs that are out of order will resume their
proper function and the patients may heal. This is
how acupuncture, electric treatment, magnetic
therapy, and far infrared ray neutralize various
physical conditions and keep the body fit." - extract from "The Scientific
Basis and Therapeutic Benefits of Far Infrared
Ray Therapy", Yamazaki Toshio, Japan.
7) The "McGraw-Hill
Encyclopedia of Science and Technology," (from
Amazon.com), reports medical practitioners
make use of Far Infrared radiant heat to treat
sprains, strains, bursitis, peripheral vascular
diseases, arthritis, and muscle pain.
8) Therapeutic Effects of Far
Infrared Heat - Chapter 9 of
"Therapeutic Heat and Cold, Fourth Edition",
Editors Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and
Wilkin - reports Far Infrared heat therapy
does the following:
* Decreases joint stiffness.
* Relieves muscle spasms.
* Increases blood flow.
* Leads to pain relief.
* Affects soft tissue injury.
* Increases the extensibility of collagen tissue.
* Assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrated,
edema, and exudes."
Use Of Far Infrared In Dental Clinics:
a) "Mr. Shu of Ninomiya Yuri Dental Clinic used far
infrared ray in his dental clinic for some years. "I
have successfully treated many common dental
diseases, for instance, pyorrhea alveolaris, gum
inflammation, tooth pain, and muscular spasm." Mr.
Shu indicated that the use of Far Infrared ray is
undergoing research. Dr. Akira, Director of the
Meitoku Association of Dentists and Dr. Waaataru of
the Kawano Dental Hospital also use Far Infrared
treatment on a regular basis for gum inflammation
and post dental pain suppression." - extract

Therapeutic Benefits of Far Infrared Ray
Therapy", Yamazaki Toshio, Japan.
Infrared Effect on Dentistry and the Immune System
- article by Dr. John Tate DDS:
FIR waves are close to the body for optimum
“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 a FIR dome for these reasons:
1. Safety. The FIR dome 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
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." - Dr. Tate DDS.

10) Healthy Arteries: When the normally smooth, firm
lining of the arteries becomes thickened and
roughened by deposits of fat, fibrin, calcium
and cellular debris, it lessens the arteries
ability to expand and contract, and slows the
blood movement through narrowed channels. These
conditions make it easier for blood clots to
form, blocking the arteries and stopping blood
flow completely. Far Infrared heat is reported
to be able to neutralize blood toxicity and
smooth the walls of arteries, capillaries and
veins. - Citaition needed.
11) Far Infrared
heat therapy in both Japan and China has proven to
be effective for respiratory challenges - asthma,
bronchitis, colds, flu, sinusitis and congestion -
as it clears inflammation, swelling and mucous
clogged passages, as researched and reported by
Yamazaki Toshio in Japan.
Yamazaki Toshio has done
extensive research on the therapeutic uses of far
infrared therapy and is the author of "The Scientific Basis and Therapeutic
Benefits of Far Infrared Ray Therapy" which examines and documents far
infrared ray thermal therapy in great depth.
Toshio reports continual
successful treatments of many illnesses and
diseases by use of FIR waves - treatments not only
by her but also by many other doctors. The list of
diseases (as documented in the book), includes -
stress induced chronic diarrhea, abdominal
distention, ulcerated large intestines, gastritis,
facial numbness, hemorrhoids, shoulder, back, and
knee pain, rheumatism, hypertension, diabetes,
weight loss, breast and abdominal tumors, low
blood pressure, asthma, anemia, burns and scalds,
body odor, early onset of baldness, fracture of
cervical vertebra, radiation exposure and related

12) There have been
numerous studies on the therapeutic effects of FIR
therapy. One clinical study done by Dr. Gordon Ko
and Dr. David Berbrayer at Sunnybrook and Women's
College Health Science Centers at the University
of Toronto, published in the August 2002 issue of
Alternative Medicine Review - "Journal of Clinical
Therapeutics" - showed that there are significant
improvements in both subjective measures of pain
and discomfort associated with Raynaud's Syndrome.
13) In Japan,
Hideyoshi Toyokawa and others researched the
effects of FIR on wound
healing. The results showed that Far
Infrared heat can improve wound healing
significantly. The results can be read at
"Experimental Biology and Medicin" online journal:
14) Carpal Tunnel
Syndrome (CTS), is caused by motion and trauma to
the median nerve passing through the wrist.
Assembly line workers are particularly prone to
the problem. The standard medical treatment for
CTS is still invasive procedures, which have a
success rate of less than 10%. Dr. Wayne Good,
plant physician at General Motors Flint Assembly,
has previously treated close to 600 patients with
FIR and achieved positive results in over 70% of
(FIR) will become one of the premier healing tools
of our future. It will eliminate the need for many
of today's common surgical procedures. I can see
the day when every household in the country will
have a (FIR) unit on hand. When used properly, it
is a safe, effective, natural tool that can
enhance, rather than oppose, the body's own innate
healing powers." - G.E. Poesnecker, N.D., D.C.
16) How fast are you aging?
a) Common problems
associated with lifestyle and aging, such as
bone weakness and digestive problems, are
attributed by some scientists to be the result
of excess acidity in our system. "The American
Medical Journal" found that in patients with
bone loss, alkalizing their system caused a
decrease in bone loss. Their conclusion was that
our typical American diet is acid producing. The
acids deposited in our blood are often stored by
the body in forms of cholesterol, fatty acid,
uric acid, and other villains that cause havoc
in our system.
Whang, the author of "Reverse Aging" claims that
these excess acids can be eliminated with the
use of Far Infrared products, along with
consuming certain alkaline minerals and foods.
The Far Infrared resonance heats up the internal
temperature of the body, increasing circulation,
thus enabling the blood to 'melt out' the acidic
toxins that have been deposited for
years in one's arteries. - www.takionic.com
Alkaline foods to embrace and acid foods to avoid.
b) "Reversing The
Aging Process' - an Enlightened Doctor's
by Dr. Fouad I. Ghaly, M.D. - Studies
suggest that Far Infrared light stimulates the production of cell tissue and
rapidly promotes the regeneration of skin and
Infrared Thermal Heat Detoxification -
Elimination of Toxicity:
accumulation is a root cause behind most
physical challenges, including the
aging process, illness and disease.
One of the
reasons FIR has beneficial results in a
variety of illnesses is the ability of far
infrared waves to remove toxins,
which are often at the core of many health
problems. Far Infrared
heat is thought to be 7 times more effective at
eliminating heavy metals - such as mercury, aluminum, and
even cholesterol's, nicotine, alcohol, ammonia,
sulfuric acid and other environmental toxins - as
opposed to conventional heat or traditional steam
The human body is a
reservoir of all kinds of bio-toxins which cannot
be expelled immediately and become stored in the
body, thereby triggering illness. When toxic gases
- such as sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide, or
potentially fatal heavy metal toxins such as lead
and chlorine - meet large water molecules, they
are encapsulated by clusters of water and trapped
in the body. Where these toxins are accumulated,
blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy
is impaired. However, when an approximate 7 to 11
micron FIR wave is applied to these large water
molecules, the water begins to vibrate. This
vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms which
are holding together the molecules of water. As
the breakdown of the water molecule occurs, the
encapsulated gases and toxins are released.
With Far Infrared Waves: "One study done by
American researchers showed that the sweat
released by users of a FIR sauna was different
that the sweat of people using a conventional
sauna or doing normal exercise. The non water
portion of sweat released in a FIR sauna was
cholesterol, fat soluble toxins, toxic heavy
metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric
acid." - Yamazaki Toshio, Japan.
overload has been implicated in many
health conditions, from fibrocystic breast disease
(FBD) in women to attention deficit
hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in
children. Symptoms of toxic overload include
fatigue, headaches, joint or muscle pain, frequent
colds and flu, signs of allergy and hormonal
imbalance, chemical sensitivity, congestion, skin
conditions, loss of dexterity, insomnia and more.
Psychological symptoms include poor concentration,
memory loss, mood changes, mental confusion and
changes in behavior. - www.balancedlives.net
