THE SCIENCE IN A NUTSHELL
WHY DO FAR INFRARED RAYS HAVE SUCH A STRONG IMPACT ON THE BODY?
Be it from food, cosmetics, alcohol, lifestyle or stress, our body is storing more and more toxins. In our body, toxins appear in water as little clumps or tiny dots.
The blood circulation gets blocked and the cell energy decreases as these toxins build up…
"Long-wave infrared rays heat up the body from within "
Japanese researcher Dr Toshiko Yamazaki, MD, has carried out decades of extensive clinical research into the therapeutic applications of infrared.
In her book, The Science of Far Infrared Ray Therapy, she explains the origin and influences of far infrared rays on the human body.
A large emission of far infrared rays heats up the body from the inside.
This causes the water molecules in the cells to vibrate, which reduces the ionic bonds of the atoms holding these water molecules together. When these molecules ‘break loose’the gases contained in the water molecules are released.
FIR emits photons* that help release enzymes. These enzymes** stimulate the activity of the macrophages***, which improves the removal of damaged tissue...
Nitric oxide is then released and improves the blood flow in the capillaries. This then transports the toxins to the lymphatic system to be removed.
*Photons: In the same way that a molecule or atom is the smallest possible particle of a substance, a photon is the smallest possible ‘packet’ of electromagnetic radiation.
**Enzymes: Organic substances produced by living cells that act as catalysts for chemical changes.
***Macrophages: Macrophages are a kind of white blood cell. Their role is to destroy cell debris and pathogens.
The brain receives a signal that the body is getting too hot:
The hypothalamus releases endorphins, which have a relaxing and pain-relieving effect
The skin pores open up and the sweat glands are activated, giving our skin a deep clean
The production of collagen is stimulated
The heart rate increases and, to help us cool down, more blood and water are sent to the skin where they get warmed up by the infrared rays
Dr Toshiko Yamazaki’s research has led to the current scientific consensus that regular infrared sessions with a radiation range between 5,500 and 10,000 nanometres are proven to improve the following conditions:
Asthma, bronchitis (eliminated), rheumatoid arthritis (7 out of 10 cases resolved in a clinical trial), cancer pain (significant reduction), liver cirrhosis (reversed), Crohn’s disease (eliminated), cold hands and feet (20–25% improvement maintained), cystitis (disappeared), duodenal ulcer (eliminated), gastritis (relieved), haemorrhoids (reduced), hepatitis (disappeared), hypertension (reduced), keloids (significantly alleviated and in some cases completely disappeared), leg ulcers (cured), radiation sickness (signs and symptoms relieved), adolescent skin problems, tinnitus (chronic cases in 10 treatments), eczema and psoriasis (responded well), pain relief, accelerated recovery after sports, scar recovery (3x faster), cellulite (markedly improved pathology), stress level, detoxification of blood, lymph nodes…
