Health Benefits of Far Infrared Rays
For many thousands of years, the sun has provided a source of light and healing for humankind. Most of us are aware of the spectrum of light, only a small band of which is evident to the naked eye. Infrared light is one part of that spectrum, and has been known to promote healing when used in specific ways. Balance bands provide a portable, wearable form of transmitting this healing infrared light to the body.
Far Infrared Technology in Balance Bands
What is far infrared? These rays are the longest out of all the rays of the light spectrum. Out of all the forms of light, this is the only one that can penetrate through the human body, reaching areas that would otherwise be unable to be accessed.
As far infrared (FIR) light delves under the cutaneous layer of the skin to go subcutaneous (below the skin), it transforms from light energy to heat energy. This heat energy is healing the body. The sun emits far infrared, but a balance bracelet targets it specifically to the interior of the body.
Healing Benefits of Far Infrared in Balance Bands
One of the keys to far infrared light’s benefits to the body is in the name of the bands – balance. A healthy body is a balanced body, and so often today there are a number of factors in our environments that throw our bodies off balance.
Our lifestyle, the food we eat, the air we breathe, stress of all kinds – all of these severely impact our bodies’ health and throw it out of balance. Taking a cue from the magical healing nature of the sun, far infrared helps to balance everything that is out of whack in our bodies.
Balance bands use the infrared light to help heat the body, which in turn helps to promote healthy circulation, not only of the blood but also of our most important healing system – the lymphatic system. When we have healthy circulation of all our bodies’ fluids, we do not become as damaged and rundown as we normally would. Our healing time becomes much faster, and we are able to bounce back much more speedily from injury or stress.
With a healthy circulation, the balance bands also help improve pain and specifically neuralgia, which is nerve pain. This type of pain can be some of the most debilitating pain there is. Many people suffer from a condition known as fibromyalgia, which is a disease that causes tremendous pain throughout the body.
Balance bracelets help alleviate that pain. In addition, they also help with soothing muscle aches, tiredness, and soreness. Often people suffer with cold hands and feet but with the improved circulation provided by the balance bands, hands and feet become warm and their temperature matches the rest of the body.
As the cells become revitalized by this influx of healing infrared energy, the cells become better able to repair themselves. This not only improves the time it takes for wounds to heal, but also helps reduce inflammation, which in turn calms all the processes of the body down when they have become inflamed.
Inflammation is the body’s response to stress of any kind. There are so many different types of inflammation, and all of them can lead to secondary health issues. By nipping inflammation in the bud, infrared healing soothes the body in general and stops the inflammation from causing these other issues.
Yet another benefit of the infrared technology in balance bands is the improvement of the metabolism. When we have damaged metabolisms, it seems that no matter what we do, everything becomes harder to accomplish. This includes especially weight gain and weight loss. A malfunctioning metabolism leads to improper hormone uptake and a host of other issues.
The infrared technology helps to boost the metabolism so that it is functioning at optimal levels. This means that it will be better able to perform its necessary tasks, such as keeping excess weight off and regulating the endocrine system and keeping hormones at their proper levels.
Infrared also helps to promote good, sound sleep, which the body cannot function without. When the human body has the proper amount of rest it needs, all other processes in the body are able to function better. Sleep is like medicine, and balance bands help to give natural, healthy sleep at night.
Stress and fatigue often haunt even the most active person. Balance bands help to alleviate all of that, so that you can go through your day and not get tired before bedtime. They enable you to have energy throughout the day without any mid-afternoon slumps or need for naps.
Yet another way that they are beneficial is that they help your body purge itself of toxins. Toxins clog up the body in different ways, and if you cannot get rid of them then they burden the body’s systems and make healing difficult and cause other health problems as well. Because circulation is improved, toxins are more easily jettisoned and do not weigh the body down as much. Viruses and bacteria and other pathogens thrive in a toxic environment, so the more clean the system is, the harder it is for them to take hold.
FIR is Amazing and Powerful
Far infrared technology is truly amazing and has beneficial effects on the body too numerous to mention. There have been studies that have demonstrated that far infrared heat emitted from a stone can go through some types of organic matter at a penetration rate that is 80 times stronger than other types of heat.
Because the heat from far infrared is so similar to the energy of the body, the resonance achieved between the two promotes active healing. Many hospitals and health centers around the world are utilizing far infrared technology in their practices because of the positive health effects it has demonstrated. Balance bands are a wonderful way to have your own FIR unit for personal use right there on your wrist.
