What Are Far Infrared Rays (FIR)?
FIR are commonly known as the "Light of Life". It is an invisible part of the spectrum of sunlight and as such is also known as the "invisible light".
It is known as the "Light of Life" because it has brought life to the earth. Up till today, the development and reproduction of all life-forms on earth depends upon FIR found in sunlight.
After laying their eggs, all insects depend on sunlight to hatch them and propagate. This is all done by FIR.
Sea turtles lay their eggs on the sandy beaches and bury them in the sand. Under the heat of the sun, especially the effects of FIR acting on the eggs for a period of time, tiny turtles are hatched. This is one of the forms which FIR has contributed. If there were no sunlight, all those would not have taken place. As such, we call FIR in sunlight the "Light of Life"
Actually, FIR do not only originate from the sun itself. Many living things on Earth such as human body, the bodies of animals, soil and minerals are able to produce FIR under specific conditions and such rays are similar in nature to the "Light of Life".
Hens and many other birds embrace their eggs and use the heat produced by their bodies to hatch them. They are in fact using FIR produced by their bodies to do the hatching, thus producing life.
Under this simple reproductive process, the eggs of insects, sea turtles, hens and birds have developed tremendously under the influence of FIR. These changes have caused the albumen and the yolk to develop into blood vessels, nerves, skeletons, hearts, etc. and give life to young which live together with their mothers in this world. That is why the effects of FIR are so great. Our bodies too can produce FIR . The intensity of FIR produced by the human. However, when it begins to decline, the human body will be subjected to attacks by ailments and diseases, age quickly and become old and there be a decline in the state of health. And when we are about to face death, FIR radiation of the human body will be near to zero.
Some people are able to cure ailments of others as their personal emission of FIR are very strong. This is what is known "Qi-gong" and "The Healing Powers of "Qi-gong".
As such the human body requires a continuous supply of FIR from mother nature to boost the powers of the Far Infra Rays found in our bodies. Constant exposure to sunlight will make our body feel healthier. Because of this we well feel energetic and stronger after having a sun -bath. From the physics point of view, FIR is a form of light. It is a form of light invisible to our eyes and as such is known as the ." 'invisible light It possesses properties similar to light. It has a fixed wave-length range ,is a transverse wave which is a component of the electromagnetic spectrum. It travels in straight lines and also experiences refraction and reflection. When it comes in contact with bodies of similar resonance thus causing both of them to vibrate at the same frequency and eventually the FIR are absorbed by the body itself. It also possesses a form of "Natural Energy". Heat which we experience everyday is all due to the presence of FIR.
Far Infrared Rays(FIR) Healing Medical Facts and Research Data
Over the last 25 years, Japanese and Chinese researchers and clinicians have completed extensive research on far infrared medical treatments and report many amazing discoveries. In Japan, there is an 'infrared society' composed of medical doctors and physical therapists dedicated to further infrared research. Their findings support the health benefits of far infrared therapy as a method of healing
The complete spectrum of sunlight consists of visible and invisible rays. The visible rays are red, orange, yellow, green, indigo, blue and violet in colors (Known as rainbow colors). The invisible rays are Ultra Violet, X-rays, Gamma, Cosmic, Microwave, Long Wave, Electrical Wave and Infrared.
Electromagnetic waves between visible light and the microwave are called infrared waves. The wave length of infrared waves range from 0.76 micron to 1,000 microns. The ranges of Near, Medium and Far Infrared Rays are 0.76 to 1.5 micron, 1.5 to 4 micron, and 4 to 1,000 micron respectively.
The Physical Characteristic of FIR are:
a. Invisibility b. Linearity, refractivity and reflectivity c. Upon being absorbed by various objects, the ability to produce warmth and harmonize with the natural life-force released by human body to enhance resonance absorption. The ability to penetrate deep into the human body.
The sun, of course, emits the visible rays with which we can discriminate colors in the spectrum and also emits various invisible rays. One of the invisible rays is the ultra-violet which is beyond the violet in the spectrum.
The infrared rays (FIR) are also invisible and contiguous to the red and of the visible spectrum. There are other invisible rays such as X-rays, gamma rays and cosmic rays. They have wavelengths shorter than that of ultra violet rays and are harmful to human being and other living things.
There are invisible rays having wavelength longer than the infrared rays, such as micro waves and long waves. They do not effect human being and other living things and are generally called 'radio waves'.
It is said that about 80% of sunlight is infrared rays. Because of its wide range of wavelength, the infrared rays are usually divided into three zones.
Far Infrared Rays is beneficial to the human body
Far Infrared Rays Medical Facts and Data. Research from Japan.
From Japan And Other Sources.
The recent studies on biotechnology revealed that the far-infrared rays having wavelength ranging from 6 microns to 14 microns played an important role for formation and growing of living things.
For this reason, this specific far-infrared rays are called "biogenetic rays". All living things on the earth have, as integral parts of them, water and proteins. Water molecules are always oscillating. If water molecules are expose to oscillating action 0f 8-10 micron wavelength (some as wavelength of water molecular oscillation), the "resonance" occurs between the two oscillations.
The resonance causes ionization of water into hydrogen ion and hydroxide ion at extremely high speed (10/12 sec.). This ionization is called "activation of water". If such activation of water occurs in human cellular tissues, the metabolism of cells and excretion of residues from cells or nutrition are enhanced …… promoted growing of living things. The infrared rays from the sun are peak at 3.5 to 10 microns of wavelength. Therefore it can be easily understood that the infrared rays 0f 6 to 14 microns are particularly important for a living things.
THE FAR-INFRARED RAYS ARE BIOGENETIC RAYS?
THE FAR-INFRARED RAYS ARE PARTS OF THE SUNLIGHT - Beside the visible rays with which we can discriminate colors in spectrum, the sun also emits the invisible rays. One of the invisible rays is the far-infrared ray which is beyond the red in the spectrum. - The far-infrared have attracted researchers attention because of their marvelous effect to human being
HEAT EMITS THE FAR-INFRA RED RAYS
If you heat an earthen pot, stone pot, or unglazed port fill with chestnuts, you will find that the chestnuts are baked softer than you baked than in your iron pot. This "soft baking" is an effect of the far infrared rays produced when ceramics, stone or the like is heated.
LOW-TEMPERATURE FAR-INFRARED RAYS EMITTING
Human being itself also emits far infrared rays to body tissues, whereby circulation of blood is enforced. The good circulation of bloods and body liquids enhances distribution of oxygen and nutrition to every part of human body, thus promoting metabolism in the organism. In short, the use of bedding made Bio Ceramics provides you with better and sound sleep and faster recovery from fatigue.
Only far-infra red rays having specific wavelength are effective to living things. The recent biological and biophysical researchers revealed that the far-infrared rays are effective to human body when their wavelength is with in the range from 6 microns to 14 microns (the far- infrared rays have wavelength ranging from 4 microns to 1,000 microns). Within this range of wavelength, the far-infrared rays cause resonance with molecular oscillation of water involved in cellular tissues of human being end can penetrate the body of human being.
WATER MOLECULES ARE QUITE SENSITIVE TO FAR-INFRARED RAYS
All living things have water molecules
Human body consists of 70% or more water. For all other animals, fishes, birds, insects and plants, water is indispensable part of body. For vegetables and fruits, overwhelmingly large part is water. You will often experience that some water is tasty but other is not so tasty though there is no difference in appearance and that good water makes tea, coffee, etc. tastier. In fact, quality of processed of food depends on quality of water used in processing.
High-quality always necessary for manufacture of beers, wines, juices and other liquors or beverages. You will be astonished if you hear that water itself can be made -------- without use of sugar or other additives or without purification, only by exposing it to the far-infrared rays.
Then water is exposed to the far-infrared rays, its molecules are activated. When you drink activated water, you will taste it "fresh". Although human being and other living things are fresh if they are exposed to the far-infrared rays, they do not absorb all infrared rays, it can absorb the far infrared rays having specific wavelengths ranging from 6 to 14 microns.
If orange, lemon, apple or other fruit is exposed to the far-infrared rays having these wavelength, it ripens and becomes sweeter to tastier due to increase the sugar content in that fruit. This fact testifies to the marvelous effect of the far-infrared rays.
What and how far-infrared rays do to our bodies?
• Far-infra radiation penetrates into our body and heats up from the inside.
• Heat is spread outwards by conduction in bones, convection in tissues fluids and far infra radiation.
• The growing warmth (conduction and convection) - dilates blood vessels & fine capillaries - improve circulation - facilitates removal of impurities and influx of nutrients.
Some examples of vital organic compounds Organics Structures - enzymes - vitamins - antibodies/antigens - natural antibodies - complex proteins & Carbohydrates - simple sugars - red & white blood corpuscles - vital organs (brain hearts, liver and kidney) - endocrine glands (adrenaline gland) - tissues (muscles, connective tissue)
Some Scientific Facts
states that energy can never be created or destroyed, but is transformed from one form to another. - The total energy in the universe in constant.
When heat energy is injected to an object, it is transferred to the surrounding region through 3 ways via a temperature gradient (difference).
• Conduction - Heat energy is passed of transferred by the vibration of solid molecules about a fixed axis - Occurs only in solid e.g. Metals, glass or wood.
• Convection - Heat energy transferred by the actual movement of the medium's molecules. - Occurs in liquids and gas e.g. water or air.
• Radiation - Heat energy is transferred from one region to another without heating the intervening space. - Energy is in the form of electromagnetic waves with wavelength belonging to the infrared spectrum - Travels at 3 x 10.8 m/s e.g. In outer space.
The Effects of FIR On The Human Body
Since FIR (FIR) are able to hatch the eggs of insects, sea turtles, chickens and other animals, causing them to develop blood vessels, nerves, skeleton, skin and feathers, it can similarly cause changes to the human body.
Our bodies are made up of cells, and the most important ingredient in cells is water. Water makes up 65% to 70% of mass of the human body. The cells in the body in turn forms the various organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys, digestive organs, blood vessels, nerves, bones and skin. Just as FIR are able to cause the albumen and egg yolk to develop into various organs, it is able to activate, revitalize, 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 basis of the sustenance of life because if it deteriorates, death is likely to follow. When there are problems with the micro-circulatory system, various ailments will occur. FIR vibrating at a frequency similar to that of the human body is able to penetrate to the body, activate the cells and reactivate as well as strengthen the micro-circulatory systems. It regulates the blood flow and blood in blood vessels which have been blocked due to blood clots and at the same time reactivate the vital energy in the body. That is why we say that FIR are able to regulate the blood circulatory systems of the body, especially that of the micro-circulatory system.
The various activities of the human body depends on the supply of nutrients. Nutrients ingested into our bodies provide us energy and help sustain our lives. At the same time, waste matters which are produced after the nutrients have been absorbed have to be removed from the body. The 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. FIR area able to improve blood circulation and continuously uplift the metabolic rate of the body. As the transport of the 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 FIR, it will naturally improve our metabolism. As such, the second benefit that FIR provides for the human body is the elevation of metabolism thus improving energy and vitality.
Its third benefit is elevation of the immunity 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 increases longevity.
The Benefits Of FIR Health Products
Today, with the continuous advance in science and technology, we have further understood the effects of FIR and through research, we have discovered bio-ceramic which can be used in the manufacture of various health products. This has been great leap forward by modern science and technology and such products are hi-tech products.
Bio-ceramics is raw material which is capable of emitting large amounts of FIR. Under specific conditions and influence of the temperature of the human body, and due to unique molecular structure, it continuously emits FIR of a specific range of wavelength ( 6 -14 micron). This exactly the type of FIR with the right wave length range required by the human body. It is type of FIR that activates the various biological functions of the human body. We call this type of raw material "Bio-ceramics".
As it only this type of FIR, it does not cause any harmful effects to the human body. FIR health products produce two different effects on the human body.
The first effect is that of strengthening the body and up keeping health, thus preventing diseases. The other effect is its therapeutic effect on the human body which is capable of treating various common ailments. This form of therapy is based upon strengthening the resistance of the human body against diseases, this reducing suffering and accelerating recuperation. Its is a form of therapy based on health-keeping principles. It is different from chemo-therapy and surgery. It is common for doctors in various hospitals to use FIR as a form of physiotherapy.
