Its wavelength is longer (and the frequency lower) than that of visible light, but the wavelength is shorter (and the frequency higher) than that of terahertz radiation microwaves. Bright sunlight provides an irradiance of just over 1 kilowatt per square meter at sea level. Of this energy, 527 watts is infrared light, 445 watts is visible light, and 32 watts is ultraviolet light.
Far infrared rays can penetrate deeply; it can warm our body from the inside out and stimulate our system
All surfaces radiate Far Infrared Rays (FIR) waves as a function of surface temperature.
Infrared waves which are at the opposite side of the spectrum are health kinds that give you warmth and relaxation. According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, in a single Infrared Ray sauna session, (the length of time as a thermal sauna), you may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes, so you lose weight not just water. Past observations show an improvement in the cleansing of the entire body.
The absorption of Long Wave Infrared Rays by the human body begins with the elimination of carbon dioxide. All living bodies have toxins (waste material, poisons) which accumulate at the body joints.
During research of the heat effect of the seven colors, it was found that the temperature rises when the color is changed from purple toward red, and even without color after passing red. This light (with a strong heat function) was named Long Wave Infrared Rays. Long Wave Infrared Rays not only warm our bodies, but they stimulate various bodily functions. They can make our bodies feel fully changed. When Long Wave Infrared Rays are enter into the body, they are absorbed by the body and they resonate through it, similar to the sound and energy waves of a bell when it is struck.
Long Wave Infrared Rays penetrate 14 to 15cm (6 inches) into the body. Therefore, these rays not only benefit the muscles on the surface of the body, but all cells including blood vessels, lymph glands, and nerves in the deepest parts of our body. These Long Wave Infrared Rays penetrate through the skin to the subcutaneous tissues transforming from light energy to heat energy that relieves shoulder pain, lumbago, and fatigue of the body muscles.
Moreover, the thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues causes blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promoting better blood circulation, an overall improved metabolism, and the heat produced promotes perspiration which helps expel body toxins, metabolic waste and unhealthy materials such as urea, nitrogen, uric acid, sodium, and chlorine which cause kidney infections and other problems.
Far Infrared Rays also increase the heart rate and blood circulation which are both crucial to maintaining your health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs toward the extremities of the skin without heightening blood pressure.
Negative Ions A Life Sustaining Energy
In order to have a healthy life in our modern society, we cannot ignore the effects of “Ions”. There are many Ions in the air we breathe, and the percentage and number of Positive Ions and Negative Ions change depending on the time and place. An Ion is a particle which has electricity. Ions are being made in the air we breathe so fast that 10 to 20 Ions per cubic centimeter are being made per second. There are 200 to 500 Ions in 1 cubic centimeter of ordinary outdoor clean air, and 100 to 200 Ions in 1 cubic centimeter of clean indoor air. Many studies of the relationship of the Ion (especially the negative Ion) to our health have been made by professional researchers who agree that our health is dependent on the amount and quality of Ions in the air.
The human body consists of billions of cells, and each is enclosed by a cell wall. This cell wall performs many important roles, and one of these is to absorb nutrition and eliminate waste material. The function of the entire cell (including the cell wall) can be normalized if there are enough negative Ions within the cell as well as outside the cell. The reverse holds true if there is a lack of negative Ions, and too many positive Ions within a cell. Thus, absorption of nutrition and elimination of waste material cannot be done effectively. As a result adult diseases such as hypertension, arteriosclerosis, cerebral apoplexy, and cancer occur.
Other afflictions caused by an improper number of Ions in the body include anemia, allergies, infirmity, shoulder pain, lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches, habitual constipation, gastroenteritis, y trouble, unbalanced autonomic nervous system, and insomnia. Too few negative Ions in our body can cause many diseases, and have a dangerous effect on our overall health.
So how do negative Ions make us healthier? Through research done by Dr. Takada Maku in Japan, it was discovered that when negative Ionization is introduced, the Ions in calcium and natrium (salt) in the blood increases, and the blood is purified by increasing blood alkaline. When the amount of negative Ions in the blood is increased, the function of a cell is activated. The electrical material exchange speeds up the cell function, and as a result, nutrition is fully absorbed by the cell and waste material is eliminated. Metabolism is increased and the function of the cell is gradually revived.
Clinical research at a Tokyo Dental College Hospital sponsored by the Japan Red Cross in Shinjuku found that negative Ions have a positive effect in the control of the nervous system in the relief of tension.
At the Public Hygiene Class at Shinsa University, clinical research showed the following: most people experienced good effects in relation to their internal organs after a few weeks of usage. The stomach showed the fastest effects, and the function of the liver was improved which counteracted many poisons.
A Dr. Koudo Michio reported that symptoms of paralysis had been dramatically reduced after supplying negative Ions for 30 days. After 90 days of treatment, the patient had recovered completely. Dr. Koudo Michio said that the negative Ion treatment is very effective for light shoulder sclerosis, as well as, symptoms of paralysis in fingers, arms, and the whole body due to occupational effects experienced by the nervous system.
In Kumamoto Hospital Japan, Dr. Nagayama of the Kyoto Pain Research Institute found the pain relieving efficiency of the negative Ion had a notable effect on most headache and neuralgia cases.
If 600 to 1000 volts of negative potential is applied to an insulated body, more calcium and sodium minerals in the circulating blood get ionized, thus changing an acidified body to an alkaline body. Ions are effective for stiff shoulders, headaches, insomnia, and chronic constipation. You may notice a layer of dust accumulate because the negative Ions are changing the particles in the air causing them to fall.
