had a conversation with a friend, a psychiatrist -
about The Chi Machine. Her in-laws have one and are
benefiting from its use. My friend kept asking me to
explain what The Chi Machine does and how it works. I
told her everything I knew in response to her
question, but it seemed no matter what I told her, she
just couldn't understand. Finally, I took another
fact; I knew that in her specialty, patients are
sometimes treated with ECT (electroconvulsive or shock
therapy). I asked her to tell me how that worked. She
struggled to explain telling me how the ECT
"rearranges the ions in the brain etc.", it was
obvious that she really didn't have a clear idea of
how that treatment worked. All she did know was that
ECT worked on some patients. I told her The Chi
Machine also worked. After that, she stopped
questioning me about The Chi Machine.
Many members of the medical profession don't
know what to make of the Chi Machine. I guess I am
an exception. I have always been open to anything
that might help my patients (as well as my family
and myself) - even if it is outside main -stream
medicine. I take this approach, because there are
many conditions in my field of ophthalmology, as
well as medicine in general, for which we do not
have a cure or satisfactory treatment. Regrettably,
many of my professional colleagues are closed-minded
toward anything not taught in medical school,
medical conferences or professional journals.
Another major source of information to doctors
comes from detail men (and women) - representatives
from pharmaceutical companies who regularly call on
doctors to educate (i.e. promote) the latest advance
from their company; obviously these individuals are
not very objective in what they impart.
Nevertheless, the drug companies have found that
their representatives are able to effectively
influence the prescribing habits of the medical
One of the first patients I introduced to The
Chi Machine was Mary Anne Hill. She and her husband
David were in my office for eye exams. Mary Anne has
which required her to use a wheelchair. After she
tried The Chi Machine for 10 minutes she noticed
that the muscles in her legs were not as stiff and
became more mobile; plus she was delighted with how
"good she felt". They ordered a Chi Machine and
after using it for a month, she went to the medical
school here in Dallas to see her neurologist. He
asked her how she was doing with her MS and she
said, "I am doing fantastic!" Her doctor was a
little surprised and then she informed him she was
using her Chi Machine every day and that was helping
her improve more than any other therapy before. He
looked at her and asked, "What's a Chi Machine?" He
contacted me and I gave some information for him.
As an ophthalmologist, I am regularly referred
patients by numerous rheumatologists. Many arthritis
patients are prescribed a medication called
Plaquenil, which is an effective drug but has the
potential to cause serious vision problems. The
protocol for patients taking Plaquenil requires them
to be checked by an ophthalmologist every 6 months.
Fortunately, vision problems are extremely rare.
Since having The Chi Machine and HotHouse, I have
introduced these devices to arthritis
patients who despite excellent care by their
rheumatologists were still very symptomatic. Some
began using the Chi Machine, plus, in some cases,
the HotHouse and experienced significant improvement
in their symptoms. When these patients reported
improvement to their rheumatologist, the doctors
contacted me for information. To his credit, one
rheumatologist purchased a Chi Machine.
Original Sun Ancon Chi Machine.
I participate in an online discussion with
other ophthalmologists all over the world who are
performing LASIK laser vision correction. Someone
posed the question about how to relax LASIK
patients pre-operatively. I informed the
group about how I put my LASIK patients on the Chi
Machine and under the HotHouse for 10 minutes
immediately prior to their procedure. This led to
questions and discussion about The Chi Machine. One
doctor ordered the Chi Machine; after he used it
himself for a few days, he sent me an e-mail with a
very succinct but powerful message: "It works!"
I am on a mission with The Chi Machine and the
HotHouse: to educate physicians and other healthcare
professionals, as well as the public, about these
incredible devices. If I never earned a nickel
marketing these products, I would promote them just
as actively as I am presently doing. Obviously, one
doesn't need to be a physician to do this; all of us
who believe in the health benefits of these amazing
machines can carry this message to the world. As a
result of our efforts, we will help others to live
long and healthy lives.
A Different Paradigm.
Dr. Nathan Lipton,
The predominant type of medicine we have in
North America, as well as in other developed
countries, is referred to as Western or allopathic
medicine. The paradigm characterizing this type of
medicine is as follows: for a specific disease - we
use a specific therapy, typically medication. Thus
the treatments are disease-specific. So if we have
Diabetes we will use insulin or an oral agent such
as Glucophage. If we have another disease such as
Arthritis, insulin or Glucophage will be of no use.
We have to use a drug that is specific for
However there is another paradigm, which can
be exemplified by The Chi Machine for example. In my
experience with hundreds of patients - using The Chi
Machine has proven therapeutically beneficial for
the following conditions:
How is this possible? How can a single therapy
help so many diverse conditions? This simply doesn't
fit our Western medical paradigm. The answer to the
question "How can The Chi Machine help so many
different conditions" is as follows. The Chi Machine
empowers the body to heal whatever pathology it is
afflicting. The human body contains an energy source -
which is called different names by various cultures.
Chi - Our life
The Asian culture calls it Qi or CHI
- the East Indian culture labels it Prana. In Jewish
terminology, the term is one that is very similar to
the word Chi; that word is Chai. No matter the name
used, they all refer to the same phenomenon. This
Chi energy exists in every human being as a dormant,
latent or potential energy source. Often this energy
is present flowing at a very low level, but it is
possible to manifest or activate this energy.
When this is done two things happen:
1. We feel wonderful.
2. Healing of virtually any disease is possible in
an accelerated fashion.
The trick is how to stimulate or activate our
Chi energy. The great genius of Dr.
Inoue was his invention of a mechanical
device - namely The Chi Machine as an easy,
enjoyable and effortless way to get the Chi energy
flowing. All of us who use and love The Chi Machine
know exactly what I am referring to here. The Chi
Machine - in an almost magical fashion - is able to
instantly power up the Chi energy force in our
bodies. I have had some patients - the very first
time they use The Chi Machine - describe that their
entire body is vibrating when it stops moving. For
many it is very profound. And the therapeutic
results are often extraordinary. This is the power
of The Chi Machine. All of us who have been working
with the Chi Machine - using it ourselves and
introducing it to others, are acquainted with
incredible even miraculous healings that have been
achieved with the Chi Machine.
As a physician I never cease to be amazed at
what the Chi Machine is capable of as a treatment
device. The greatest joy in life is to help others.
Nothing else even comes close. It is so wonderful to
be able to share The Chi Machine with others who are
in pain or who have a condition from which they have
been unable to get relief. The worst thing is for
someone to be suffering from a condition
unnecessarily - because they simply don't know about
an effective treatment that is available. Most
people have never heard of The Chi Machine. Our
mandate then is to be of service to others by
continuing to spread the word about the amazing Chi
Dr. Nathan Lipton,
Not long after obtaining and discovering the
wonderful benefits of the Chi Machine, I became
curious about another device made by the same
company, called the HotHouseor the Far-Infrared
I ordered it and found it very pleasant to use
by itself or in conjunction with the Chi Machine.
Around this time, my wife developed arthritis in her
right hip and big toe. A rheumatologist, who
recommended powerful anti-inflammatories that might
have been very effective but can also cause side
effects, saw her. Rather than go the pharmaceutical
route, she began using the HotHouse for two 20
minute sessions daily over her hip and foot. Within
one month, all her symptoms resolved which was very
impressive to me. With continued use, she remains
Before long I brought the HotHouse and Chi
Machine into my office to use with patients. The
main surgery I perform is LASIK laser vision
correction and I have found it extremely helpful to
place all my patients on the Chi Machine and the
HotHouse for 10 minutes before their procedure.
I also introduced the HotHouse to patients
whom I felt could benefit from its use. One of these
was Mr. Neil Hendrikson who reported his experience
"Dear Dr. Lipton,
Thanks for recommending the FIR HotHouse. I was in
terrible pain, gone to every doctor, MRI, the works.
I have bone spurs, and two bulging discs in my back.
I was bedridden, taking pain pills and having
terrible back spasms. I had made an appointment with
a pain specialist when I remembered Dr. Lipton's FIR
machine (from HTE).
I had one air freighted to my house.What a miracle!
In seven days, no medicine was needed. My wife even
started using the HotHouse for sciatica
with great relief. Thank you Dr. Lipton."
This and other patient's experiences with the
HotHouse demonstrated that far infrared rays have
unique therapeutic properties. How does far infrared
work? There is an excellent article in the January
2001 issue of Alternative Medicine Magazine that
addresses this question.
In brief, here is a summary of the
mechanisms and benefits of the HotHouse Far ar
1. The HotHouse raises body
temperature (also known as hyperthermia) which has
a) It promotes the killing of many pathogenic
(disease-causing) bacteria, viruses, fungi and
b) Second, it modulates the immune system by
increasing production of cytokines (special immune
cells that play a very important role in disease
control). In Europe and Central America, people pay
exorbitant amounts of money to bring cultivated
cytokines in for their health needs. The HotHouse
promotes the production of our very own
(biologically safe) cytokine cells (without fear of
external contamination and excessive costs).
c) Third, it coordinates the immune response
against mutated cells. (Mutated cells are genetic
variants that occur randomly or because of
environmental changes; they are usually not
favorable to the survival of the person in whom they
Infared Hothouse Dome.
2. The Hothouse helps athletes recover
faster from athletic trauma; especially the combination
the Hothouse and the Chi Machine, helps
tissues repair by increasing oxygenation to the
tissues and reducing the production of lactic acid.
Also, through increased lymph drainage, the
accumulated lactic acid from the injury is resolved
sooner. It also promotes rebuilding of injured
tissue by having a positive effect on the
fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for
the repair of injury). Furthermore, it
increases growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and
protein synthesis all necessary during tissue
3. The Hothouse promotes Chinese
meridian regulation. Far infrared can penetrate up
to 4 cm into the body. This excites the vibrational
energy of the molecules and resonates with the
cellular frequencies, and thus promotes the proper
flow of energy or chi throughout the body. This in
turn promotes all bioprocesses, increasing
metabolism, increasing blood circulation, and the
core body temperature. One hour under the Hothouse
burns over 900 calories by raising the metabolism
and body temperature.
4. The Hothouse detoxifies the
environmentally patient. Far infrared brings about
significant detoxification of heavy metals including
mercury and other environmental pollutants.
Finally, I will share my own personal
experience with far infrared. Several months ago, I
woke up and noticed there was a lump about
the size of a grape on the right side of my neck. It
wasn't there the day before and I felt fine
otherwise. What was it? It was likely a lymph node
which certainly is a source of concern. When I got
home that evening, I got under the far infrared unit
for 2 hours - when I finished this treatment, the
lump was unchanged. The next morning when I woke up
and looked in the mirror, I was amazed to see the
lump had shrunk 80%. I only wish I had taken a
photograph. After another week of treatment, it
I know that far
infrared units are used in Europe
and Asia to treat almost every health condition with
therapeutically significant results. As a physician
I am on a mission to help educate other physicians
about far infrared and how this wonderful modality
can be used to help their patients remain healthy.
Dr. Lipton has since died very unexpectedly, but his
dedication and passion will always be remembered.
