At first I thought it’s too good to be true. There’s no way I could relieve my back pain in minutes, kick my stress and fatigue out the window, restore my energy, boost my immune system and detoxify – Just by lying on my new infrared heating pad and relaxing.
To tell you the truth, I didn’t just get an “ordinary” infrared heating pad. My sister persuaded me (for 3 months) to get an amethyst biomat, which combines infrared therapy with negative ions and amethyst – And words can’t describe how this gadget has changed my life.
The mat provides very soothing warmth, which is hard to describe. It is deep warmth, with no perceivable source, making the warmth experience almost surreal.
It dramatically reduces my back pain, extremely relaxing, gives me very restful sleep and restores my energy ever time. I am so excited by far infrared heat that I suggested to my husband that we should buy an infrared sauna. His response was “First stop blogging and get a real job”.
I’m never going to stop blogging, so I guess no sauna for me…:)
Anyway, back to my beloved infrared rays.
If you hate medication (and the filthy rich companies that makes them, don’t get me started) like me – You should know that this is the perfect substitute for ANY KIND of pain treatment – But without any side effects at all.
How Does it Work?
Unlike ordinary heating pad (I would advice you to stay away from them), which only heat the surface of your skin, infrared heating pads are completely safe – There’s no danger of burns or drying skin.
Far infrared rays, which are completely invisible to the naked eye, are capable of penetrating deep into the human body (literally right down to your bones) where they gently elevate the body’s surface temperature and activate major bodily functions.
(Don’t worry; far infrared rays are 100% safe. They’re NOT the ultraviolet rays which cause sunburn and skin cancer).
The healing rays heat your muscles, blood vessels, nerves, joints and bones. The results? At least 5 Priceless Benefits:
The all time champion of benefits. If you have an infrared heating pad, or sleeve, or mat at your home – You have a natural, safe and effective pain relief available to you when ever you need it. As the deep blood vessels expand, oxygen rich blood floods in and healing components rush to heal inflammation and all effected areas, while relaxing your muscles and joints. This means pain relief in 5 minutes max. No wonder Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Athletes and Sports Trainers recommend this treatment.
This will work for any type of pain with absolutely no side effects:
- Joint Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Joint Stiffness
- Leg Pain
- Shoulder Injuries
- Hamstring Tears
- Calf Injuries
- Thigh Injuries
- Knee Injuries
- Tennis Elbow
- Muscle Spasms
- Menstrual Cramps
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
While this is only a temporary pain relief, temporary means 6 hours, compared to 30 minutes achieved by a regular heating pad. And if chronic pain is keeping you from sleeping, a full body infrared heating mat will guarantee a sound and relaxed sleep.
Before you buy an infrared heating pad, consider what you need it for. Is it just for one area in your body? Like your knee? Or your elbow? In this case you only need a small device, like the Therasage Small Far Infrared Heated Healing Pad or the Thermotex Infrared Foot Therapy System .
If you need back pain relief or you have a few painful areas in your body, such as your back and your legs, you’ll need a larger pad, like the Large Therasage Far Infrared Heated Pad or the Richway Amethyst Mini-Mat (Far Infrared BioMat)
(You can see infra red heating pad reviews to see what real users think about it)
2. Detoxification, Anti-Aging and Skin Rejuvenation
The increased blood circulation brings more oxygen rich blood – And faster – While carrying off metabolic waste products away – Detoxifying the entire treated area. If you have a full body heating mat (like I do), it will detoxify most of your body at the same time and that, to me, is amazing. Plus, after a few minutes you start sweating, which rids your body of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.
This priceless benefit is the reason why so many …spas offer infrared beauty treatment. The detoxification I’ve mentioned above happens with your skin as well. The skin releases toxins by sweating and dead skin cells fall off, leaving it glowing and immaculately clean.
3. Weight Loss
According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, in a single Infrared Ray sauna session, you may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes (Maybe I should use this info to convince my husband to get my sauna…).
Infrared accelerates the breakdown of fat and cellulite. Molecules of water and organic substances absorb infrared easily, since it is their resonant frequency.
4. Improved Immune System and Disease Prevention
Though she mainly bought it for back pain problems, my sister discovered that it can also prevent the flu and common cold from developing. After suffering from the flu for more than a week, she decided to lay on her heating mat (she has the bio mat mini version) and see what happens. She felt the genteel warmth in her lungs and after a few minutes felt better than she has since the flu started.
This is no surprise because Far Infrared Rays’ deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial “fever” and your body’s immune system is strengthened.
5. Restful Sleep and Stress Reduction
The combination of the gentle warmth and the relaxed muscles makes this is a great stress relief aid. It’s like lying on the beach in the afternoon sun – Not too hot, not too cold – Just perfect from some deep sleep. Many chronic pain sufferers find it impossible to sleep at night because of the pain. A full body infrared mat takes care of this problem; all you have to do is sleep on it.
6. An Alternative to Cardiovascular Exercise (What??)
In the August 7, 1981 issue of the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) reported “regular use of a infrared sauna may impart a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.”
This means it’s possible for people in wheelchairs, those who are otherwise unable to exert themselves, and those who won’t follow an exercise/conditioning program, to achieve a cardiovascular training effect. Infrared heat increases blood flow, similar to that seen during exercise.
That’s it my friends, I thought that I should share this life-changing therapy with you and now I am done and I can go take a nap on my biomat.
