Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc. 2007;2007:1479-82

‘’During the period of Far Infrared (FIR) therapy, the symptoms of eye itching, nasal itching, nasal stuffiness, rhinorrhea and sneezing were all significantly improved. Smell impairment was not improved until after the last treatment. No obvious adverse effect was observed in the patients during treatment and follow-up. We concluded that FIR therapy could improve the symptoms of Allergic Rhinitis and might serve as a novel treatment modality for Allergic Rhinitis.’’
