Far Infrared (FIR) radiation is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of radio waves. The name means "below red" and comes from the Latin infra, "below", red being the color of visible light with the longest wavelength. The boundary between visible and infrared light is not precisely defined. Far Infrared energy effectively breaks down water molecules that accumulate and store unwanted toxins in our body that block blood circulation and impair cellular functions. Exposure to far Infrared waves steadily circulates blood, removing blockages in the blood vessels and allowing for proper oxygen distribution to all parts of the body. This action has had success in treating skin disorders such as acne, eczema and psoriasis. In a study performed by American researchers, the sweat of people using a conventional sauna was found to be 95 to 97% water while the sweat of those using a Far infrared heat system was 80 to 85% water with the non-water portion principally cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals (such as mercury and aluminum), sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid. The unusually high concentration of heavy metals and other fat-soluble toxins is not found in the sweat from normal exercise The comforting heat from the infrared body wrap increases skin temperature, causing fats and oils to "melt" and seep out of the skin's sweat glands. As sweat and oil are secreted, the toxins dissolved in them are secreted as well. By excreting these toxins and then washing them off your body, your toxic load is lowered and cellular health improves.
