This is the most common application of FIR (far-infrared) technology, people experiencing a lack in quality of life due to temporary or ongoing physical pain. FIR technology can go to great lengths to help people who fall into this category.
Far infrared can majorly promote healing in the body through increased microcirculation in the body’s capillaries thus helping blood flow to all cells. This increased blood flow brings oxygen, nutrients, and energy to the cells in the body which need it most. It goes further to actually aid in the body detoxification process along with lymph node cleansing and the ability to hinder the growth of bacteria.
A highly common trait shared by us all is an increase in pain and joint stiffness in our daily lives as we age. Aging bodies have a reduced ability to circulate blood to all the areas which need it most, including extremities and motion focused areas such as our joints. Many others will experience the same day following a challenging exercise or healing from injury.
Far infrared has been shown to make a profound difference in this area and many are recommended by professionals to visit an FIR sauna. This is to promote blood flow and circulation of oxygen along with nutrients to re-build and repair damaged cells in the afflicted areas. While an FIR sauna requires space, time, and money to put together, FIR mats can provide the same benefits often for a fraction of the cost and certainly an even smaller fraction of the space required.
Imagine having the benefits of an FIR sauna in your own home, benefits you can enjoy while sleeping, reading a book, watching TV or having a company to visit.
Many people use the technology of FIR primarily for its ability to help detoxify the body. It helps the body to eliminate heavy metals, reduce harmful carcinogens, and reduce water retention. Toxins like these cannot be eliminated overnight from the body, and are accumulated through years into the body primarily through our diets.
Exposure to FIR waves lends energy to all the molecules of the body, including those which are holding/trapping these harmful toxins. This added energy helps these molecules vibrate and break apart, releasing these toxins and making them available for expulsion from the body. People will often experience a noticeable increase in energy levels and focus after treatment to help the body rid itself of the harmful toxins which are constantly accumulating.
In today’s society with pen happy professionals prescribing all kinds of pills to help you with your every day or your occasional downer days, a drug free alternative has answered the prayers of many. Anyone searching for a mood boosting and chronic pain reducing solution will want to consider FIR therapy.
Throughout ages, it’s been shown that thermal therapy can have an effect on chronic pain and that exposure to the sun will give an uplifting boost to your mood. This is especially useful for people living in areas of limited sunlight or long rainy seasons. Far infrared provides the benefit of heat therapy, increased circulation, and the inside out warming effect till now only the sun could provide, warming your mood at the same time.
Promising research is demonstrating that repetitive thermal therapy has positive effects on chronic fatigue syndrome or CFS. Far infrared heat therapy itself is shown to improve sleep, reduce the number of sleep disturbances, and reduce the aches and pains associated with CFS. Studies such as the following have shown that FIR saunas have been an effective treatment.
Far infrared thermal mats are an excellent alternative FIR product with a lower expense than a sauna and much further applicability, not to mention portability to follow you where you need to go.
Back pain is one of the top debilitating conditions in which people suffer universally. Whether brought on by sports injury, work-related injury, years of bad posture or any other cause, back injuries and back pain can prevent us from nearly all of life’s enjoyments. This is why research in this area and how FIR technology can help treat it is such an exciting topic.
Currently, FIR is being shown to help increase the recovery time of back pain patients and decrease pain levels in other patients. It is a breakthrough treatment for anyone coping with back pain when current common remedies are through the use of drugs or invasive surgery.
High blood pressure is a condition which can be caused by a variety of factors including stress, weight, diet, age among others. The commonality between any case of high blood pressure is its danger to the individual. High blood pressure is the case of the heart working harder to pump blood around the body and can lead to heart attack, stroke, among other cardiac problems. New studies are finding that FIR therapy can actually be cause in normalizing blood pressure and blood viscosity. These effects were noted after only 1 hour of undergoing FIR therapy. These findings could be life changing for the millions of people managing a high blood pressure condition.
There is new evidence in studies that show that FIR could be instrumental in the treatment of cardiovascular disease along with autoimmune and other chronic health problems. The evidence is showing that the use of non-invasive (and convenient) FIR therapy can improve the health of patients dealing with cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, and chronic kidney disease. The conclusions demonstrate that FIR therapy can provide significant benefit to those struggling with some chronic diseases and yield no detrimental side effects.
New research is showing that 5 types of common cancer cells, when tested in a culture incubator with FIR treatment all showed signs of inhibited growth due to the treatment. The study included breast, lung, tongue, gingiva, and vulva cancers. The treatment showed that constant exposure to FIR decreased the cancer cells proliferation. Although findings in this topic are preliminary and more research is required to draw hard conclusions, studies so far have shown incredibly promising results.
Researchers have looked into numerous lifestyle changes and habits to improve the lives of those living with diabetes but have not found any particular solution or beneficial exercises. Studies are now showing that repeated or regular treatment of far infrared therapy in those suffering from diabetes has been shown to show improvements in quality of life and diminished pain. If you or a loved one has diabetes, then you likely are familiar with the numerous areas of life which diabetes affects, including pain, depression, congestive heart failure and chronic fatigue syndrome.
There is research showing that far infrared therapy can benefit anyone suffering from those symptoms as well as specifically those suffering directly from diabetes. Regular treatments as noted in the research link below were shown to improve overall health, lower stress, improve social functioning and reduce fatigue.
Peripheral nerve damage and disease is a wide spread problem for people of all ages. Research has shown that far infrared is an effective treatment against nerve related pain and debilitation. The key benefit of FIR treatment for nerve injury and disease is that it is a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical solution to afflictions which to date the medical field has not found an effective lasting solution to. Importantly discovered through this research is the benefit FIR has on recent surgery related to motor function and the nervous system. It is shown to have a significant impact on regeneration and motor function improvement.
With the decreased protection from the ozone layer due to years of human development and burning of fossil fuels, today greater protection than ever is needed from the sun. Quite often sun screen is not enough to protect your skin from sunburn, even with multiple applications. Multiple sunburns are something of real concern for over the years your risk of skin cancer significantly magnifies. Recent research has shown, that pre-exposing your skin cells to the non-harmful far infrared radiation can actually better prepare them for exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. A few minutes spent on your FIR mat ahead of heading to the beach can prevent the formation of sunburn cells and give you a worry free day at the beach.
Far infrared heat therapy has been shown to be beneficial in numerous areas of the cardiovascular system. As many hemodialysis patients will know, the quality of their treatment depends on blood flow. Arteriovenous fistula, the abnormal connection between an artery and a vein, is surgically created for hemodialysis patients or it can also be caused due to pathologic processes such as trauma. Either way, FIR treatment can increase and improve blood flow within an arteriovenous fistula and thereby improve the effects of hemodialysis treatment. There are other, traditional methods of increasing blood flow, however, the majority of patients will find FIR to be a more comfortable and less invasive treatment option.
Allergic rhinitis is one of the most common afflictions world-wide. More commonly known as hay-fever, what is experienced is an inflammation of the nasal glands, the nose. This is uncomfortable & most people find medications & immunotherapy which are the common treatments, to be ineffective. Researchers have shown noticeable improvement through the use of FIR treatment in allergic rhinitis cases. This is primarily through the increased circulation resulting from the FIR the resulting reduction in inflammation which eliminates and helps remedy most of the symptoms, sneezing, stuffiness, nasal itchiness, runny nose and itchy eyes.
Far-infrared radiation was found to be the main inhibiting factor of tumor necrosis factor in a study conducted at the Institute of Clinical Medicine at the National Yang-Ming University in Taipei, Taiwan.
The study was intended to reveal the interaction between HO-1 and FIR radiation in regulating vascular inflammation. Because of the inflammatory properties of FIR, it was mimicked by bilirubin, bilirubin is necessary for the body to process and clear away waste products produced by the destruction of aged red blood cells. This study demonstrates that FIR therapy is correlated with the induction of HO-1, and plays an integral role in improving and maintaining blood flow for hemodialysis patients.
Also known as dysmenorrhea, this is a symptom many women will be familiar with. In 2012 a study was conducted with 51 women diagnosed with severe dysmenorrhea. Half the women wore an FIR belt, while the other half, the control half, did nothing different. The control group with the belts found an increased abdominal temperature with nearly a 3.3% increase in blood flow. This group reported to have experienced considerable pain reduction. How many lives could be changed by realizing this one benefit alone!
Far -infrared is proven to promote and increase blood flow in all areas of the body. It does this just like when you spend time in the sun, you can feel the increased blood circulation, for instance, if you’re a person who normally has cold feet or hands. The reason for this is the FIR heating the body from the inside out, expanding our blood vessels and allowing more blood to flow.
This is no different in the breasts of women, promoting blood flow and in doing so enhancing the normal lactation process. According to the 1990 study in the following link, FIR therapy can make significant improvements in the lactation of women who struggle with poor lactation.
