A definition of the Far Infrared Rays (FIR)
FIR is a type of electromagnetic waves, like that of invisible rays. We know that FIR is a spectrum of sunlight.
Sunlight can be categorized as visible and invisible rays. Visible rays include those that we can see in the spectrum of sunlight such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet whereas invisible rays can either be gamma rays, x-rays or ultraviolet rays. These have much shorter electro waves as compared to visible rays and are extremely penetrative.
Infrared Rays were discovered by a German Scientist named Sir William Herschel in 1800 while he was carrying out sun spectrograph research. His research led to the discovery that while there were the known visible and invisible rays as described in the above paragraph, there was a third previously unknown invisible ray. This ray has extremely strong heat reaction and is between 0.75 microns and 1000 microns. It was later named Infrared Rays.
Infrared Rays are categorized as:
• Near Infrared Rays ( 0.76 – 1.56 microns)
• Mid Infrared (1.5 – 4 microns) and
• Far Infrared Rays (4 – 1000 microns)
According to biological research, Far Infrared Rays (FIR) is absorbed very easily by the human body. It brings numerous benefits to our bodies and other living creatures as it helps in all aspects of bodily growth and development. Thus, it is aptly named the ‘Light of Life’ as it is the source of all life on our earth. Sea turtles lay their eggs on the sandy beaches and bury them in the sand. Under the heat of the sun, and effects of Far Infrared Rays acting on the eggs for a period of time, tiny turtles are hatched. This is just one of the infinite life forms attributed to Far Infrared Rays. If there were no sunlight, all these would not have taken place. As such, we call Far Infrared Rays in sunlight the ‘Light of Life’. Actually, Far Infrared Rays do not only originate from the sun itself. Many living things on Earth such as the human body, the bodies of animals, soil and minerals are able to produce Far Infrared Rays under specific conditions and such rays are similar in nature to the ‘Light of Life’. Under this simple reproductive process, the eggs of insects, sea turtles, hens and birds undergo tremendous development from the influence of Far Infrared Rays. The ‘Light of Life’ cause the albumen and the yolk to develop into blood vessels, nerves, skeletons, hearts and other respective organs thus giving life to the young. The effects of Far Infrared Rays are greatly responsible for life to flourish.
Our bodies too can produce Far Infrared Rays. The intensity of Far Infrared Rays produced by the human body is ever-changing. When its intensity is high, we will feel healthy and will be able to overcome ailments. However, when it begins to decline, the human body will be subjected to attacks by ailments and disease, age quickly and become old there will be a decline in the state of health. And when we are about to face death, Far Infrared Rays radiation of the human body will be near zero.
Some people are able to treat ailments of others as their personal emission of Far Infrared Rays are very strong. This is what is known as “Qi-gong” and “The Healing Powers of Qi-gong”. As such the human body requires a continuous supply of Far Infrared Rays from Mother Nature to boost the powers of the Far Infrared Rays within our bodies. Constant exposure to sunlight will make us feel healthier, which is why a sunbath often leaves us feeling energetic and stronger.
1.What is so unique about Far Infrared Rays?
Far Infrared Rays have the following characteristics:
• Travel in straight lines.
• Easily absorbed by the human body, reaching as far as 4-5 cm into the body. It reacts from inside the body.
• Vibrate at the same frequency as the human body. When it comes in contact with bodies of a similar wave-length, such as the human body and other living things, there will be resonance thus causing both waves to vibrate at the same frequency and eventually the Far Infrared Rays are absorbed the body itself. This is called “Resonance Absorption”.
• Causes a warm effect once it enters the human body. This is because the rays activate molecules and body cells. This effect is limited to varying levels in individual bodies.
Far Infrared Rays cannot be seen by naked human eyes. Not all red light contains Far Infrared Rays. Today, modern science and technology have enabled us to see the rays using scientific equipment called the “Far Infrared Rays detector”.
1. The effects of Far Infrared Rays on the human body (Part one)
Sunlight makes us feel warm. This feeling comes from Far Infrared Rays which adds vigor into our body cells. Thus, adequate sunlight helps to maintain and enhance our overall body health.
The effects of Far Infrared Rays on the human body:
• Enhances the body’s micro-circulatory system.
• Strengthens the body’s metabolism function.
• Improves body resistance.
Since Far Infrared Rays are able to hatch eggs of insects, sea turtles, chickens and other animals, causing them to develop blood vessels, nerves, skeletons, skin and feathers, it can similarly contribute changes to the human body.
Our bodies are made up of cells and the most important component of cells is water. Water makes up 65% to 70% of the mass of the human body. The cells in the body in turn form various organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys, digestive organs, blood vessels, nerves bones and skin. Just Far Infrared Rays are able to cause albumen and egg yolk to develop into various organs, it is able to activate, revitalise, reactivate, develop and strengthen the various organs in our bodies when it is absorbed.
In the various organs of the human body, the circulatory system plays an important role, especially the micro-circulatory system. It is the basis of the sustenance of life because if it deteriorates, death is likely to follow. When there are diseases and disorders with the micro-circulatory system, various ailments will occur. Far Infrared Rays vibrating at a frequency similar to that of the human body is absorbed in to the body. It then activates the cells and reactivates as well as strengthens the micro-circulatory system. It also regulates the flow of blood and normalises the various systems of the body. Thus, Far Infrared Rays is able to regulate the blood circulatory system of the body, especially that of the micro-circulatory system.
The various activities of the human body depend on the supply of nutrients. Nutrients ingested into our bodies provide us with energy and sustain our lives. Waste matters which are produced after the nutrients have been absorbed need to removed from the body. This process is known as metabolism. The metabolic rate of each individual is an indicator of his/her health. If we wish to have a healthy life, we must maintain a good and strong metabolic rate.
Far Infrared Rays are able to improve blood circulation and continuously uplift the metabolic rate of the body. As the transportation of nutrients in the body depends on blood circulation, the removal of metabolic waste matters from the various activities in the body is also dependent on the circulatory system. When the circulatory system is improved under the influence of Far Infrared Rays, it will naturally improve our metabolism. As such, the second benefit that Far Infrared Rays provides for the human body is the acceleration of metabolism resulting in improving energy and vitality.
Its third benefit is the reinforcement of the immune system of our bodies against diseases. This is part of the effects of the improvement in the micro-circulatory system and metabolism of the body. It helps to slow down the aging process, increase resistance against diseases and promote longevity.
2. The effects of the Far Infrared Rays on the human body (Part two)
Far Infrared Rays produce two different effects on the human body:
A. Short-term effect
Far Infrared Rays is a form of thermal energy. It creates a warm effect upon the human body. As a result of resonance absorption, Far Infrared Rays are able to simulate the activities of water molecules and regulate the flow of blood especially that of the micro-circulatory system. It also strengthens body metabolism. Consequently, we will feel stronger and more energetic.
Far Infrared Rays are also able to diminish inflammation in our body, relieve pain, invigorate the circulation of blood and regulates the main and collateral channels through which vital energy circulates. Far Infrared Rays do help in reducing ailments which our bodies suffer from until it is fully recuperated.
Since Far Infrared Rays are a form of electromagnetic wave, it is absorbed by the human body through resonance absorption to activate body cells, to reactivate the functions of body cells and to strengthen and increase blood vessel resilience in order to treat ailments. For instance, diabetics are able to recover sooner, hastens the recuperation of kidney function and stabilizes blood pressure of suffering patients. Far Infrared Rays also aid in reducing skin wrinkles and restore the resilience of skin.
B. Long term effect
Over a period of time, exposure to Far Infrared Rays, will improve our health. The immunity of our human body will be restored and strengthened where as our internal organs such as liver and heart as well as our skeleton, blood vessels and mental facilities will be strengthened. These will naturally help in preventing diseases. Far Infrared Rays is especially powerful when treating chronic diseases such as cancer, gastric ulcer, high blood pressure and heart and blood vessel disease.
Far Infrared Rays also help in slowing down the aging process and protecting the vital energy of our bodies. All in all, it can well be said that Far Infrared Rays benefit the human body in terms of maintaining our health, increasing resistance against diseases and increasing our longevity.
3.. What are the benefits of Far Infrared Health Products?
With today’s breakthrough in the areas of Science and Technology, we have a better understanding of the benefits of Far Infrared Rays. Through research, we have discovered Bio-ceramics which can be used in the manufacture of various health products. This has indeed been a great leap forward by modern science and technology.
Bio-ceramics is a raw component which is capable of emitting large amounts of Far Infrared Rays. Under specific conditions and the influence of body temperature and due to its unique molecular structure, Bio-ceramics continuously emits Far Infrared Rays of a specific range of wavelength (4 -16µm) This is the exact range required by the human body for ultimate absorption. These rays will activate the various biological functions of the human body. As Bio-ceramics only emit Far Infrared Rays, it does not cause any harmful effects to the human body.
Far Infrared health products produce two different effects on the human body:
The first effect of Far Infrared Rays is that of strengthening the body and restoring health, thus preventing diseases. The other benefit is its therapeutic effect on the human body which is capable of treating various common ailments. This form of therapy is based upon the strengthening of the resistance of the human body against diseases, thus reducing suffering of the patient and accelerating his recuperation. It is a form of therapy based on health-keeping principles and is different from chemotherapy and surgery. It is common for doctors in many hospitals to use Far Infrared Rays as a form of physiotherapy. Strengthening the body, maintaining health and prevention of ailments are important applications of Far Infrared Rays. This is because the occurrence of ailments is due to a decline or malfunction of the various system of the body coupled with external factors. We should not wait until ailments strike before seeking the aid of Far Infrared products. As such, Far Infrared health products are highly recommended for the prevention of ailments. It can be considered a necessary health product in our daily life.
The second effect of Far Infrared Rays is in the treatment of common ailments. We face various ailments in our daily lives. Far Infrared Health Products are able to provide therapeutic effects for such ailments. We will discuss this in detail in later chapters.
4. Will Far Infrared Products benefit everyone?
The answer is yes. It is useful for everybody for the simple fact that no human body can survive without the sun. The same principle applies to Far Infrared products as these rays emit from the sun itself.
It should be understood that Far Infrared Products do not produce standard effects for everybody. If you are young and healthy, Far Infrared Health Products may not bring significant changes during a short period. But to those who are weaker and older, far Infrared products will bring about tremendous changes.
As mentioned, the human body absorbs Far Infrared Rays through “resonance absorption”. According to physics, simultaneous vibrations only occur when two rays of the same wavelengths but with a different frequency of vibrations meet. When the frequency of these vibrations in the human body decreases, we grow old and face various ailments. By using Far Infrared Health Products, the human body will continue to have strong simultaneous vibrations. Hence, our body will be healthier and stronger.
Does this mean that a healthy person will not need Far Infrared Health Products? The answer is ‘no’ because everybody faces ailments throughout his life. By using Infrared Health Products, we will be in a better position to prevent ailments and recover better. We will enjoy health with relatively less ailments.
5. What is the difference between Far Infrared Health Products and other Health Products?
There are numerous health products in the market now. Every health product comes with its own unique functions and advantages. Each health product and method is in different stages of development and has different functions.
In recent years, we have made use of various types of health products such as nutrients to help reduce, prevent and treat different ailments to lead a healthy life.
We have now entered an era where Bio-ceramics offering the benefits of Far Infrared Rays have been developed and now made available.
Let’s compare the various health care methods and products available and its effects.
