The Effects of FIR on Human Body

Since FIR “Far Infrared Ray” is able to hatch the eggs of insects, sea turtles, chickens and other animals causing them to develop blood vessels, nerves, skeleton, skin and feathersm it can similarly cause changes to human body. Our bodies are made of cells, and the most important ingredient in the cell is water. 65% to 70% of mass of the human body consist of water. The cells in the body in turn form various organs such as heart, liver, kidneys, digestive organs, blood vessels, nerves, bones and skin. Just as FIR- waves are able to cause the albumen and egg yolk to develop into various organs, it is able to activate, revitalize, reactivate, develop and strengthen various organs in our bodies when it is absorbed.

In various organs of the human body the circulatory system has an important role, especially the micro-circulatory system. It is basis of sustance of life because if it deteriorates, death is like to follow. When micro-circulatory system faces problems, various ailments will occur. Because FIR- waves are vibrating at a frequence similar to human body, they are able to penetrate to the body. They activate cells and strengthen the micro-circulatory systems. It regulates the blood flow and blood vessels which have been blocked due the blood clots. At the same time the vital energy in the body is activated.

The various activities of the human body depend on the supply of nutrients. Ingested nutrients provide us energy and help sustain our lives. At the same time, wastes which are produced after the nutrients have been absorbed, have to be removed from the body. The process is known as metabolism. The metabolic rate of each individual is an indicator of his/her health. If we wish to have life, we must maintain a good and strong metabolic rate. The wavelength area of FIR is able to improve blood circulation and continuously uplift the metabolic rate of the body. This is because the transport of the nutrients in the body depends on the blood circulation. Removal of metabolic waste depends on the various activities in the body and is also dependent on the circulatory system. When the circulatory system is improved under the influence of FIR, it wil naturally improve our metabolism. The second benefit that FIR provides for the human body is the elevation of metabolism thus improving energy and vitality. Its third benefit is the elevation of the immunity of our bodies againts diseasis. This is a result of the improvement in the micro-circulatory system and metabolism of the body. It helps to slow down the aging process, increases resistance against diseasis and increases longevity.

Cleaning the metabolic waste from the body is necessary in order to prevent different diseases and health problems. Regular deep heat is effective and easy. The harmful metabolic wastes in the body are e.g. fat and cholesterol, that access our body from our food. They can be removed from the body through sweating caused by the deep heat. When sweat caused by the deep heat is analyzed, for example the following substances have been found in sweat: lead, cadmium, nickel, copper and sodium. This means that the ability of the deep heat to remove harmful substances is very effective. Toxic substances, which cannot be removed from the system, are regularly accumulated in the body.

According to worldwide researches, the temperature needed for losing toxic substances should be at least 45°C. FIR can create this temperature without overloading the circulatory system. Regular deep heat is the best method to remove different metabolic waste from the body. The accumulation of metabolic waste in the body influences on the bad health of many people.

Scientific researches indicate that the deep heat stimulates the cells to remove toxic substances, such as lead and mercury, from the body through sweating. Thus, the deep heat can be considered as a very good deep cleaner of the body. Focused heat has also been used in the treatment of small local pain and relief, but all the benefits offered by the deep heat were not understood until now. In clinic researches deep heat has been discovered to activate complex neurological, vascular and metabolic mechanisms in order to relieve pain. Deep heat also relieves e.g. rheumatism, rashes and psoriasis, and their treatment has showed good research results worldwide.

FIR – far infrared – heat increases the body temperature to 38,5°C during the use of e.g. Energy blanket and this artificial fever kills the bacteria and viruses. This is the reason why the users of such product have flu very rarely. The toxin removing effect of FIR is in its own class, because the sweat comes deep from the body and the toxic substances are removed deep from the body. The objective of the aerobic exercise is to increase the heart rate and metabolism, which increases the blood circulation and improves your condition. This way the calories are burnt and the weight reduction is very likely to happen.

Wide researches indicate that exposure to far infrared radiation has the same effect as physical exercise. The body cools itself by producing sweat and the heart pumps blood faster. Although the fluid lost by sweating can be replaced by drinking water, the calories are not replaced.

Researches indicated that the deep heat removes toxic substances effectively from the body by removing fat that is needed to dilute the toxins. The deep heat dilutes the fat to the sweat and it is removed from the body through sweating. For persons who cannot do cardio exercise, e.g. patients in wheelchairs, elderly and sick people, it is very important to create a similar effect to their bodies in some form. FIR also offers great benefits for active and amateur athletes. FIR accelerates recovery after heavy exercise, helps the lack of oxygen in the system, improves peripheral circulation, relieves muscle tension and pain, removes metabolic waste, helps to improve muscle stretch and sinew and movement of joints.

FIR is also an excellent help for athletes, who have to lose weight rapidly. An injured athlete can maintain his or her condition with the help of deep heat, although active exercise would not be possible. 45 minutes of effective deep heat treatment in high temperature may burn even 600 calories. It is the same amount burnt by running or by very heavy physical work.

Health Care and Slimming Functions

Far Infrared Ray “FIR” has been testified to be one of the most effective and secure scientific methods for health care and slimming. All the life-forms on earth naturally have activation of cells and flourishing metabolism with the radiation of FIR. In modern society people live in an environment of hard work, fast speed and great psychological pressure and they are always in a status of sub-health. Sharply aiming at these diseases caused by modern civilization FIR65º -Energy Blanket combines health care and slimming function without any negative effects on human body and therefore is the ideal Hi-Tech health care equipment for family purpose.

Therapy Effect

FIR heat therapy can promote blood circulation, strengthen the function of organism within the body, regenerate cells in the body and improve metabolism. It can effectively diminish rheumatoid arthritis, alleviate fatigue, relieve pressure and improve sleeping. Besides, it has good effects on slimming, diminishing inflammation, stopping ache, killing viruses and curing wounds.

When activity frequency between molecules and atoms of cells becomes unanimous with FIR frequency, the energy will be rapidly absorbed by cells and this results in resonance and increased molecule oscillation. This way cells are activated.

Therapeutic Effects of Far Infrared Heat

The following information has been summarized from Chapter 9 of Therapeutic Heat and Cold, Fourth
Edition, Editors Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin, or concluded from data gathered there.

Infrared heat increases the extensibility of collagen tissues

Tissues heated to 45°C and then stretched exhibit a nonelastic residual elongation of about 0.5 to 0.9 % that persists after the stretch is removed. This does not occur in these same tissues when stretched at normal tissue temperatures. Therefore 20 stretching sessions can produce a 10% to 18% increase in length of tissues heated and stretched. Stretching of tissue in the presence of heat would be especially valuable in working with ligaments, joint capsules, tendons, fasciae, and synoviurn that have become scarred, thickened, or contracted. Such stretching at 45°C caused much less weakening in stretched tissues for a given elongation than a similar elongation produced at normal tissue temperatures. Experiments cited clearly showed low-force stretching could produce significant residual elongation when heat is applied together with stretching or range-of-motion exercises. This is safer than stretching tissues at normal tissue temperatures.

Far Infrared heat decreases joint stiffness

There was a 20 % decrease in rheumatoid finger joint stiffness at 45°C as compared with 33°C, which correlated perfectly to both subjective and objective observation of stiffness. Speculation has it that any stiffened joint and thickened connective tissues may respond in a similar fashion.

Far Infrared heat relieves muscle spasms

Muscle spasms have long been observed to be reduced through the use of heat, be they secondary to underlying skeletal, joint, or neuropathological conditions. This result is possibly produced by the combined effect of heat on both primary and secondary afferent nerves from spindle cells and from its effects on Golgi tendon organs. The results produced demonstrated their peak effect within the therapeutic temperature range obtainable with radiant heat.

Far Infrared heat treatment leads to pain relief

Pain may be relieved via the reduction of attendant or secondary spasms. Pain is also at times related to ischemia (lack of blood supply) due to tension or spasm that can be improved by the hyperemia that heatinduced vasodilatation produces, thus breaking the feedback loop in which the ischemia leads to further spasm and then more pain. Heat has been shown to reduce pain sensation by direct action on both free-nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves. In one dental study, repeated heat applications led finally to abolishment of the whole nerve response responsible for pain arising from dental pulp. Heat may lead to both increased endorphin production and a shutting down of the so called “spinal gate” of Melzack and Wall, each of which can reduce pain. Localized infrared therapy using lamps tuned to the 2 to 25 micron waveband is used for the treatment and relief of pain by over 40 reputable Chinese medical institutes.

Far Infrared heat increases blood flow

Heating one area of the body produces reflex-modulated vasodilators in distant-body areas, even in the
absence of a change in core body temperature. Heat one extremity and the contra lateral extremity also
dilates; heat a forearm and both lower extremities dilate; heat the front of the trunk and the hand dilates.
Heating muscles produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Temperature elevation also produces an increased blood flow and dilation directly in capillaries, arterioles, and venules, probably through direct action on their smooth muscles. The release of bradykinin, released as a consequence of sweat-gland activity, also produces increased blood flow and vasodilatation. Whole-body hyperthermia, with a consequent core temperature elevation, further induces vasodilatation via a hypothalamic-induced decrease in sympathetic tone on the arteriovenous anastomoses. Vasodilatation is also produced by axonal reflexes that change vasomotor balance.

Far Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, oedema and exudates

Increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate oedema, which can help inflammation, decrease pain, and help speed healing.

Far Infrared heat affects soft tissue injury

Far Infrared healing is now becoming a leading edge care for soft tissue injuries to promote both relief in chronic or intractable “permanent” cases, and accelerated healing in newer injuries.

Possible Contraindications

As you can see, the segment of the infrared spectrum emitted by an far infrared ray, such as Physiotherm Far Infrared Ray and FIR65º Energy Blanket is reputed to offer an astounding range of possible therapeutic benefits and effects in research conducted around the world. However, the data presented in this text below is offered for reference purposes only and to stimulate further observation. If you have a disease, be sure to consult with a primary-care physician concerning it.

Prescription Drugs: If you are using prescription drugs, check with your physician or pharmacist for
possible changes in the drug’s effect due to an interaction with far infrared energy.

Certain Ailments: According to some authorities, it is considered inadvisable to raise the core
temperature of someone with adrenal suppression, systemic lupus erythematosus, or multiple sclerosis.

Joint Problems: If a person has a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours
or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed infections be they dental, in joints, or in any other tissues.

Pregnancy: In pregnancy or the suspicion of pregnancy, discontinuation of far infrared ray use is recommended. As in here North – Finnish women´s use traditional saunas that don’t heat the body as deeply as an FIR65 Energy Blanket for only six to twelve minutes and reportedly leave at that time due to perceived discomfort. Their usage of traditional saunas at this low level of intensity is not linked to birth defects. FIR65 Energy Blanket use may be two to three times more intense due to deep tissue penetration, and comparatively shorter two to six minute sessions hardly seem worth any minimal risk they may present.

Surgical Implants: Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect
far infrared rays and are not heated by an far infrared heat system. Nevertheless, a person should consult his or her surgeon before receiving such therapy. Certainly far infrared therapy must be discontinued if a person experiences pain near any implants.

Silicone: Silicone does absorb far infrared energy. Implanted silicone or silicone prostheses for nose or ear replacement may be warmed by far infrared rays. Since silicone melts at over 200ºC, it should not be adversely affected by an far infrared heat system, however. Still advised that a person checks with his or her surgeon, and possibly are presentative of the product manufacturer, to be certain.

Menstruation: Heating of the low-back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. Once a woman is aware that this is occurring, she can choose to allow herself to experience this short-term effect without worry. Or she may simply avoid using an far infrared heat source at that time in her cycle.

Haemorrhage: Haemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to haemorrhage should avoid far infrared usage or any type of heating that would induce vasodilatation that can lead to the tendency to bleed.

Worsened Condition: Should any condition worsen with the use of an far infrared heat product, the use of the system should be discontinued.

Pain: Pain should not be experienced when using an far infrared heat product or technology. If one does, the use of radiant heat is clearly inappropriate for the person at that time.

Do not attempt to self-treat any disease with a Physiotherm Far Infrared Ray product without direct supervision of a physician.
