FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulations. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Many people use FIR heat to alleviate the pain and discomfort of arthritis, rheumatism, and muscle spasms.
Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process of sweating requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt, and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 110 degrees allowing the body to sweat out fat and toxins.
The heart receives a workout similar to a 6 mile run in a 60 minute FIR blanket session and the body perspires the same amount as a 6 mile run. Infrared blankets are perfect for those that do not have time for regular exercise or suffer from injuries that inhibit rigorous activity.
Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol, carcinogenic heavy metals and mercury accumulate in the body during modern daily life. The body eliminates most toxins naturally by sweating but the process is sometimes too slow. Infrared heat therapy stimulates the sweat glands that cleanse and detoxify the skin. FIR heat technology simply speeds up the body’s natural process.
Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attacks foreign agents. Often misunderstood, this rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system’s healing process and is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. FIR heat induces an “artificial fever” by heating up the body, but without the pains of an illness. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the “artificial fever”. Recent studies also show that colds and flu-like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with FIR heat.
