During the last decade, a silent revolution has been taking place in Japan inthe fields of healing, preservation, cooking, drying and heating. It is the use and application of safe and efficient Far Infrared (FIR) Wave Technology, replacing the potentially harmful microwave technology. More then 150 significant patents were granted to the Japanese in the field.
FIR waves deeply penetrate organic substances and water (2 to 3 inches), the warming effect is very uniform. We live in an environment of FIR waves and our body receives and radiates them.
The list of FIR products available in Japan is amazing: sleeping pads, FIR sauna, FIR plastic plate to keep fish and vegetables fresher and longer in your refrigerator, Bio-Mate discs for cooking, FIR socks and gloves, FIR hair dryer, FIR vest, FIR range oven, FIR ceramic paper, and FIR clinical treatments.
Dr. Toshiko Yamazaki, MD, owns a clinic in Japan where she continues her medical research utilizing FIR technology. She attributes the successes of the FIR wave treatments to the capability of FIR waves to remove toxins from the body. This may be an oversimplification, but in general, toxins in are body are acidic. Where the toxins are accumulated, blood circulation is blocked.
FIR treatment is effective in expanding clogged capillary vessels and successfully dissolving the hidden toxins into the blood and eventually out of the body via urine and perspiration.
In the winter time, we feel comfortable with a sweater on when the room air temperature is 70F. However, in the summer time, we feel comfortable with short sleeve shirts on with the same room air temperature of 70F. The explanation is that although the air temperature is the same, the walls and ceiling radiate FIR waves in the summer time that warm our bodies even more.
A married couple sleeping together lives long. I am sure that there are some emotional benefits to help them, but another reason may be that while sleeping, they act as transmitters and receivers of FIR waves to each other. If you sleep alone, you act as a transmitter without receiving any FIR waves. People say that so-and-so has good vibrations. Well, when you are sitting together with someone and talking, you are sending away and receiving vibrations of FIR.
