Far Infrared Therapy

The History of Far Infrared Therapy

How Far Infrared heat therapy came into being:
Our bodies radiate far infrared energy through the skin at 3 to 50 microns, with most output at 9.4 microns. Our palms emit FIR energy also, between 8 and 14 microns. 'Palm Healing', an ancient tradition in China, has used the healing properties of far infrared rays for 3,000 years. These natural healers emit energy and heat radiating from their hands to heal, much the same as Reiki healers do. Current research conducted in Taiwan has measured significant far infrared energy emitted from the hands of Chi Gong masters. Yogis in India also employ palm healing and recommend it especially for relieving eye strain. Thermal therapy has in fact been in existence for thousands of years, dating back to ancient civilizations such as the Finns, the Romans, the ancient Chinese, the American Indians, and the Egyptians 5,000 years ago

Far Infrared Technology Today

For many decades, scientific evidence has found that heat can maintain and enhance the wellness of the human body. Scientists have researched different ways in how to develop more effective forms of thermal heat therapy that target specific areas and enable deep heat penetration.

Traditional forms of heat therapy can be hazardous, uncomfortable, unhygienic, inefficient and ineffective. Traditional saunas create exposure to extremely high temperatures causing heat stress which can have detrimental effects on health, especially for people with heart challenges or needing to sustain blood pressure. Thermal compression’s and wraps are uncomfortable, heat is easily lost, temperature does not remain constant and maintaining a thermal compression or wrap can be problematic and inconvenient.

Research and development in the sixties – notably most extensively in Japan and also Germany – introduced the Far Infrared Ray (FIR) thermal technology. This revolutionized thermal technology to an effective, safe, natural, hygienic, and efficient approach to thermal treatment. Today there are multiple health and medical professionals internationally who rehabilitate and look after numerous physical challenges by using heat therapy for humans and as well as animals. Relief for sports injuries via thermal therapy is one example, whilst detoxification is another (research PubMed.gov for worldwide medical citations).

Far Infrared Medical Healing Worldwide.
Japanese and Chinese researchers and clinicians have completed extensive research on far infrared heat therapy and report many amazing discoveries. In Japan, there is an ‘Infrared society’ composed of medical doctors and physical therapists dedicated to further Far Infrared heat research. Their findings support the outstanding health benefits of Far Infrared thermal therapy as a natural method of healing.

Dr. Tadashi Ishikawa, a member of the Research and Development Department of Fuji Medical, received a patent in 1965 for a zirconia ceramic infrared heater used in the first healing infrared thermal systems. Medical practitioners in Japan were the only ones using infrared thermal systems for 14 years. In 1979, they were finally released for public use. The technique has been further refined into far infrared thermal systems that have been sold in the USA since the 1980’s. One use of Far Infrared heat in the USA has been in the form of panels used in hospital nurseries to warm new born.

There have been well over 700,000 far infrared thermal systems sold in Asia for whole body treatments. An additional 30 million plus people have received localized far infrared treatment in Asia, Europe, and Australia with FIR lamps, which emit the same 2-25 micron wave bands as employed in a whole body system. In Germany, physicians in an independently developed form have used whole body Far Infrared therapy for more than 80 years.

Hyperthermia using Far Infrared - Thermal Oncology

Cancer enemies include Far Infrared Heat, Oxygen and Alkalinity.
Heat Therapy/Thermal Therapy - otherwise known as Hyperthermia or Thermotherapy - promotes pain relief, promotes circulation, eliminates toxins, accelerates healing, and supports health and life quality where conventional toxic Western protocols fail. Doctors that specialize in hyperthermia for cancer are called Thermal Oncologists, a growing community around the world.

Orthodox Oncology:
1) Operations remove visible cancer cells. Unseen malignant cells are left behind, not uncommonly showing up within 5 years or thereabouts.

2) Radiotherapy and chemotherapy are both unable to distinguish between healthy cells and malignant cells thus damaging and killing both, besides causing the cancer to proliferate even further, and also damaging respiratory cells in normal cells, overloading them with toxicity.

All three modalities are considered detrimental to health and invasive protocols. Thermal (heat) therapy and immuo-therapy are non-invasive.

In America the mainstream thinking on cancer treatment is slowly but surely undergoing change due to education of the public via the internet, and due to the failure of outdated Western orthodox protocols that are expensive but more importantly, far too frequently, simply don’t work. Toxic ‘band-aids’ are no longer acceptable to thousands of people who are now choosing safe, non-toxic protocols, with emphasis on a natural whole food, alkaline diet which the traditional medical establishment generally refuses to discuss or support.

Elimination of Toxins: Far Infrared heat is a recognized method for removal of toxicity from the body for cells poisoned with heavy metals (aluminium, mercury, cadmium etc), environmental chemicals, and toxic drugs.

Circulation: Cancerous cells cannot exist if circulation is smooth and continuous. Good circulation in the capillaries leaves no room for a cancerous cell to stop and take hold – a malignant cell has to stop moving to proliferate. Far Infrared heat helps capillaries to expand, promoting circulation and increased oxygen, thus providing protection and prevention against proliferation,

The cancerous cell’s positioning, or settling down, is directly related to the capillaries, which are at the end of the blood vessels. The cancer cell tries to position itself by going through the capillary. If it goes through, there could be no settling down or positioning of the cancer cell – which is what happens if there is good blood circulation. If the cancer cell fails to pass through the capillary because of some functional disorder in the circulation, the cell could easily position itself. Healthy circulation – without functional disorder – leaves no way for the cancerous cell to settle down and position itself. The cell may then be killed by the immunocyte (the immunity cell).

Hyperthermia is used worldwide by hospitals and thermal oncologists. Here are just a few countries that is can be found in use: Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Ukranine, Hungry, Turkey, Iran, India, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Japan.

Hyperthermia is used extensively in Asia and Europe – especially Japan and Germany – but is only fairly recently in comparison, being researched and utilized within the USA, acknowledged and attested to by the American Cancer Association and the National Cancer Institute on their respective websites.

Integrative Therapies

The use of hyperthermia is attested to by:

1)  The American Cancer Association.

2) The National Cancer Institute (NCI) – the U.S. government’s principal agency for cancer research. The NCI states that “Hyperthermia is almost always used with other forms of cancer therapy, such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy.”

The NCI fact sheet states:
“Hyperthermia (also called thermal therapy or thermotherapy) is a type of cancer treatment in which body tissue is exposed to high temperatures (up to 113°F). Research has shown that high temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells, usually with minimal injury to normal tissues (1). By killing cancer cells and damaging proteins and structures within cells (2), hyperthermia may shrink tumours.
