  • Far Infrared emits photons
  • Photons help release enzymes
  • Enzymes stimulate macrophage activity increasing the elimination of damaged and diseased tissues
  • Nitric oxide is released which expands capillaries and Increases circulation

Infra-Red photons produce enzymes that activate macrophages, which help eliminate damaged and diseased tissue. Macrophages work on a cellular level.
Nitric oxide is released and expands capillaries. It also increases circulation and carries toxins to the lymph system and out of the body.
Why is this Infrared system unique? It uses infrared radiant energy to directly penetrate the body’s tissues to a depth of over 1-11/2". Its energy output is tuned to correspond so closely to the body’s own radiant energy that our bodies absorb close to 93% of the infrared waves that reach our skin.
One of the reasons FIR has beneficial results in a variety of illnesses is the ability of FIR waves to remove toxins, which are often at the core of many health problems. Numerous toxins are
stored in our bodies. Toxic gases may be encapsulated by clusters of water. Where these toxins
Are accumulated, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. When a 10 micron FIR wave is applied to these large water molecules, the water begins to vibrate, which reduces the ion bonds of the atoms which are holding together the molecules of water. As the breakdown of the water molecules occurs, encapsulated gases and other toxic materials are released.

Dr. Tsu Tsair Oliver Chi summarized the effect of infrared rays on the body in these words: "These rays are selectively absorbed by tissues needing a boost in their output. The internal production of infrared energy that normally occurs within our tissues is associated with a variety of healing responses and may require a boost to a maximal level to ensure the fullest healing response possible in a tissue which is being repaired. After boosting a tissue's level to its maximum, the remaining rays pass onward harmlessly.”
Success reported with Infrared treatments by Japanese researchers in Musculoskeletal eases:
Accel-Decel lnjury Sequelae
Traumatic Arthritis
Brain Contusion – accelerated healing
Low Back Pain relieved
Muscle Spasms – reduced or eliminated
Disc Protrusion – related Neuralgia
Brain Contusion–accelerated healing
Tight Shoulders – relaxed   
Muscle Tension – relaxed
Bursitis – eliminated                
Shoulder Pain – relieved or eliminated
Spinal Cord Shock – reversed
Post-exercise Muscle Pain
Arthritis: Gouty, Rheumatoid – each substantially relieved or improved
"Medical practitioners make use of Infrared radiant heat to treat sprains, bursitis, peripheral vascular diseases, arthritis and muscle pain," according to McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology.
Summary from Therapeutic Heat and Cold, 4th Ed.,
ED Justus F. Lehmann M.D. Generally it is accepted that heat produces the following desirable therapeutic effects:

  • It increases the extensibility of collagen tissues.
    • Tissues heated to 45 C exhibit an increase of length in tissues when stretched.
    • This effect would be especially valuable in working with ligaments, joint capsules, tendons, fascia and synovium that have become scarred, thickened or contracted.
    • Such stretching at 45 C caused much less weakening in stretched tissues than a similar stretching at normal temperatures.
  • The experiments cited clearly showed that low-force stretching can produce significant residual elongation when heat is applied together with stretching or range-of-motion exercises, and is also safer than stretching tissues at normal tissue temperatures.
  • This safer stretching effect is crucial in properly training competitive athletes so as to minimize their “down” time from injuries.
  •  It decreases joint stiffness directly.
  • It relieves muscle spasms.
  • It produces pain relief.
  • It increases blood flow.
  • It assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema, and exudates.
  • More recently, it has been used in cancer therapy.

Otto Warburg was nominated for the Nobel Prize in 1944 for research concerning photosynthesis in connection with the chemotherapeutics of cancer and the use of x-rays. His research has shown that infrared impacts cancer.
Dr. Masao Nakamura of the 0 & P Medical Clinic in Japan has reported great success with the use of Infrared treatment for:
Shoulder stiffness
Ear diseases
Gastroenteric problems

Researchers reported over 90% success in a summary of Chinese studies that assessed the effect of Infrared on:

Soft tissue injury
Lumbar strain
Eczema with infection
Periarthritis of the shoulder
Pelvic infection
Pediatric pneumonia
Facial paralysis (Bell's Palsy)
Post-surgical infections
Menstrual pain
Frostbite with inflammation

Far Infrared produces nitric oxide. (White cells use nitric oxide to defend against tumors. Nitroglycerine and other related compounds act by releasing nitric oxide.)

The scientific mechanism of FIR was strongly suggested in the1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine Award. Scientists Murad Furchgott and Ignaro found that nitric oxide gas which is released into the blood from the hemoglobin turns on the immune system and allows healing to take place. Dr. Valentino Puster, a past president of the American Heart Association, called the nitric oxide discovery “one of the most important discoveries in the history of cardiovascular medicine because it promotes expansion of the capillaries and allows the blood to get into the area to increase circulation and reduce the risk of strokes and heart attacks."

It has been demonstrated by Dr. Lon R. Horwitz that a FIR energy modality increases nitric acid in the blood and plasma of normal adult subjects. A1999 publication by Dr.Horwitz strongly suggests that Far Infrared produces nitric oxide gas, which aided in the recovery of the five patients in a study, who could not get healing conventionally. They had various diabetic problems and were not able to heal, but they received the nitric oxide technology produced by the FIR, and healing took place for all of them. Augmentation of Wound Healing Using Monochromatic Infrared Energy; Advances in Wound Care; author’s unpublished research.

When you apply the FIR technology, you see the healing results from the production of nitric oxide nom the hemoglobin by the reaction of the photons of the FIR on the enzymes, which produce the nitric oxide gas. The immune cells get into the area and the circulation is increased. Pain is reduced, and the area now has the immune cells necessary to get complete healing.

The wide-ranging results nitric oxide may pay off in new treatments for:
Atherosclerosis (a thickening of artery walls)
Septic shock (a dangerous drop in blood pressure)

The Infrared protocol was instituted after conventional management protocols were shown to be ineffective in wound healing. The rate and quality of healing of these previously refractory wounds following use of FIR energy, may be related to local increases in nitric oxide concentration. Increases in nitric oxide previously have been demonstrated to correlate with vasodilatory and anabolic responses.

Substances harmful to the human body are excreted through seat and oil glands, such as carcinogenic heavy metals, toxic substances from food processing, lactic acid, nonesterified fatty acids, fat and subcutaneous fat which cause fatigue and aging, as well as hypertension caused by sodium ions which trigger uric acid pain.
