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!
The connections between the Infrared spectrum and the mitochondria for detoxification and health are particularly striking. Mark Givert, founder of Get Fitt (Far Infrared Thermal Therapy), held a seminar on the technology for a group of practitioners.
