What is Far Infrared
So, what is far infrared exactly? And what’s it got to do with you and I? And how does it affect us?
I must admit, when I first heard about “far infrared therapy”, I was somewhat skeptical. I mean how can you believe in something you can’t see, right?
There are also dietary recommendations that can help reduce inflammation and strengthen tendons.
So, I wasn’t sure what all the “buzz” was about until I starting reading medical studies and listening to testimonials from people who have benefited greatly from this natural remedy.
How is it that light rays, below the level of human sight, can be of such great benefit to our bodies? At the time, I had no idea just how vital far infrared rays are for all of us.
It wasn't until I spent a number of years investigating the science of this miraculous biogenetic energy and its amazing connection to our health and well being, that I started to see the big picture.
Imagine, specific wavelengths of infrared light working in unison with your molecular makeup to stimulate and improve your health, emotionally and physically.
As you probably already know, the electromagnetic spectrum of light consists of visible rays and invisible rays. In fact, the visible spectrum of light to the human eye is only a small fraction of the entire range of light energy rays.
If you study the chart above, you can see what I’m talking about. The infrared spectrum is just below the visible (red) light and is divided into three (3) ranges of Near, Medium and Far Infrared Rays.
Physical Characteristic of FIR
Far infrared rays are photons of light energy radiating within a specific measurement of wavelengths from 4 to 1,000 microns. Although far infrared is invisible to the human eye, it can be felt.
Many skeptics are somewhat astonished to discover a warm soothing feeling when they try on a pair of Prolotex™ Therapy Gloves.
Upon being absorbed by the soft tissues of your body, FIR (9-14microns) appears to be most resonant with cell tissues and harmonizes with your own life-force energy.
This natural process, known as “resonance absorption”, produces warmth and stimulates your metabolism, possibly making far infrared light, just as important as vitamins and minerals to the body's proper functioning.
Natural far infrared rays emitted and reflected from Prolotex™ Therapy Gloves are of the same intrinsic vibration frequency as the cellular makeup of your hands. That’s why these “vital rays” of light energy are so easily absorbed, during the process of "resonance-absorption”, deep into the soft tissues of muscles and joints.
Far Infrared Light: Therapy Of The Future?
Far infrared is proving to be a factor in strengthening the body's resistance to infectious diseases, increasing the oxygen capacity of the blood, and improving stress tolerance. Exposure to FIR increases lymphocytes and neutrophils and reduces the frequency of colds and respiratory infections.
Far infrared light stimulates the production of cell tissue and rapidly promotes the regeneration of skin and blood tissue in areas exposed to its healing rays.
FIR speeds cellular metabolic rates by stimulating the activity of mitochondria, and triggering enzyme activity, flushing out toxins and reducing pain and swelling.
Far Infrared Benefits The Whole Body
Regular exposure to far infrared rays is similar to physical exercise in its effects on the body. FIR improves the balance of blood pressure, blood sugar, and an increase in oxygen and nutrients in your cells, resulting in increased muscle strength, vitality, and mental stability.
Natural wavelengths of far infrared light, for example, are essential for bone growth, as well as, preventing osteoporosis, regulating hormonal functions, and boosting your immune system.
Beyond Exercise And Nutrition
Far infrared light affects the hormonal balance of the body, in levels of:
Melatonin: hormone derived from serotonin, produced by the pineal gland that plays a role in sleep, aging and reproduction.
Cortisone: naturally occurring steroid hormone, primarily in carbohydrate metabolism, and is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, adrenal insufficiency, certain allergies, and gout.
Testosterone: white crystalline steroid hormone, most potent naturally occurring androgen.
Easy to Wear
Wearing Far Infrared Therapy Gloves on a regular basis is probably the easiest way to genuinely improve the health and beauty of your hands.
And... they are affordable, compared to other hand care products that only last one session.
Similar To Photosynthesis
You need to think of the effects of far infrared photons of light to a process similar to the photosynthesis process in plants. FIR is converted by the body into electrochemical impulses and sent to the pineal and pituitary glands, which, in turn, produce healthy hormones that are sent through the central nervous system to all the cells of your body. Thus, light is essential to the functioning of our entire endocrine system.
