also concluded that Far Infrared heaters are not
dangerous. Instead, Japanese researchers have
reported that Far Infrared radiant heat antidotes

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."
9) Use Of Far Infrared In Dental
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."

Far Infrared Effect on Dentistry and the Immune
“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
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
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
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 Far Infrared Dome
for these reasons:
- 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.
- Penetration. FIR penetrates 1-1/2" so this is an
advantage to the dental surgeon who deals with
bone as well as soft tissue.
- 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
- 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."

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. - Citation needed.

Toxicity: Toxic 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
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
