Far Infrared is so often portrayed as a heat treatment and as a sauna that will heat you up make you sweat and help you detoxify. It is considered to be a sauna plain and simple..... This could not be further from the truth. Far Infrared can induce a heating and warming effect however Far Infrared is Light Therapy.
I was ill for many years suffering from fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Leaky Gut, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Neuropathy, Excessive Weight Loss, Gut Permeability, Parasitic infection, Dysbiosis, Candida and a swollen liver; to mention a few of the things going on for me.
So often we are in a state of constant stress. Life happens and we simply do not wind down and relax. This endless unrelenting stress can be very damaging to our health.
Far Infrared Light Therapy helps to restore function of the body's systems and helps stimulate cellular repair. This is the impact of sending light in the form of photons into the cells of the body.
Research shows that Far Infrared helps repair damaged blood vessels. It is this blood vessel damage that is so often responsible for high blood pressure. The blood vessels are unable to expand properly. The result is that blood is forced through rigid blood vessels that will not dilate, thus driving up blood pressure.
Life today is challenging, one reason for this is that we are all facing exposure to a large number of unseen/invisible toxins in the form of: chemicals, metals, and pesticides which can all be found in our homes, workplace, our food, water, our environment and the air we breathe.
One of the biggest health challenges I faced many years ago was leaky gut. I had a variety of infections and particularly a huge Candida problem. Leaky gut is a bit of a grey area, and it is not something that the medical profession are clear on yet. I myself suffered from a huge number of food intolerances, infections, IBS and food allergies.
Far Infrared is an invisible wavelength of light that warms up the body; when the cells of the body absorb the photons being generated by the Far Infrared equipment, heat is released producing a nice warming effect similar to that of the warming rays of the Sun (without the harmful UV rays that cause sunburn).
Toxicity is not normally something that one would associate with pain. However a very interesting study in 2008 offers some indication that there may be a connection between toxicity and painful trigger points/muscle knots. In the study tissue samples were used from the muscles themselves, and areas surrounding the trigger points. These were compared with samples from healthy muscle tissue and there were significant differences.
There is so much confusion about Far Infrared, how to use it, and how it works. In all the years we have been doing this, we still find that most people are totally confused until we can help clear things up for them!
