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.
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

Edition", Far Infrared radiation is the only
antidote to excessive ultraviolet radiation.
Infrared Thermal Therapy and Electromagnetic
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
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

Potential 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

Far Infrared Effect on Dentistry and the Immune
System - article by Dr. John Tate DDS:
FIR waves are close to the body
for optimum penetration.
“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
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

is identical to the body’s 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.
- 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 effect.
- 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.

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
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.

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.
Sang 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

Toxicity: Toxic accumulation
is a root cause behind most physical challenges,
including the aging process, illness and
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
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.
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

by American researchers showed that the sweat
released by users of a FIR sauna was different

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
