Understanding Long Wave Infrared Rays

Long ago, we learned that Long Wave Infrared Rays were beneficial, yet we didn't understand their principles. The secret of placing a warm tile on our stomach and rubbing it if we had pain, the nice relaxed feeling we have after sleeping in a warm bed, the good flavor charcoal or a natural stone gives barbecued food, or the reduction of stress and fatigue felt in a clay sauna are all the results of Long Wave Infrared Rays. And the Biomat produces these Infrared Rays.

During research of the heat effect of the seven colors, it was found that the temperature rises when the color is changed from purple towards red, and even without color after passing red. This light (with a strong heat function) was named Long Wave Infrared Rays.

  Far Infrared Rays
From The Inside Out Infrared Rays

There are three universally accepted characteristics of an Amethyst's Far Infrared Rays:

    Radiation is one of the general characteristics of light and this means that light reaches an object without using the air. For example, the Sun's light reaches the Earth throught the vacuum of space by radiation.
    The second characteristic is the deep impact power. Different from ordinary light beams and short wave infrared rays, Long Wave Infrared Rays can penetrate deeply. Because of this, it can warm our body from the inside out and stimulate many of our body's systems.
    This third characteristic can be explained by an example of touching a large bell with a single finger. A bell has an inherent number of vibrations when it is touched or struck. When the bell is struck at a regular interval, it causes vibrations and it begins to move. When the energy used to activate the bell is increased, the vibrations between molecules strengthens and the electronic energy increases.

Far Infrared Rays penetrate 6 inches into the human body. Therefore, these rays not only benefit the muscles on the surface of the body, but all the cells including blood vessels, lymph glands and nerves in the deepest parts of our bodies. Because of this, these rays can warm our body from the inside out and stimulate most of our body's essential systems.

  Infrared Rays and Relaxation  

The Effect Of Long Wave Infrared Rays On Our Bodies

Think about this in relationship to our body. Our body consists of over 80% water and a variety of other materials, such as proteins, hormones, enzymes and nerve tissue which all play an important role.

Long Wave Infrared Rays not only warm our bodies, but they stimulate various bodily functions. They can make our bodies feel fully changed. When Long Wave Infrared Rays are beamed into the body, they are absorbed by the body and they resonate through it, similar to the sound and energy waves of the bell when it is struck.

Perspiration is directly related to body temperature. The Far Infrared Rays penetrate deeply into our skin, and they are helpful in eliminating waste materials through skin pores. They promote good blood circulation which helps relieve arthritis pain, muscle pain and joint pain. When the body's temperature rises, perspiration begins to help control the body's temperature. The evaporation of 1 gram of water takes about 0.6Kcal of heat away; Therefore, the role of perspiration is very important in controlling our body's temperature.

Long Wave Infrared Rays penetrate 14-15cm into the body. Therefore, these rays not only benefit the muscles on the surface of the body, but all cells including blood vessels, lymph glands and nerves in the deepest part of our bodies. These Far Infrared Rays provide a heat source that relieves shoulder pain, arthritis pain and the fatigue of body muscles. Moreover, perspiration helps expel unhealthy materials such as urea, nitrogen, uric acid, sodium and chlorine which can cause health problems.1


The infrared rays are generated by the BioMat. Infrared rays give you warmth and relaxation. Far Infrared Rays are found in sunlight. When you are in the sun, you feel the radiant heat warming more than just your skin. You feel those tired muscles relaxed as helpful dry heat not only warms the surface of your skin, but also penetrates beneath your skin for deep soothing comfort.

Far Infrared Rays' deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial "fever".


As it works to combat the "fever", your body's immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and waste produced by the intense sweating, your overall health and resistance to disease is increased. The gentle warmth of your Amethyst BioMat gives you an overall messaging effect, soothing worn out nerves and knotted muscles. You'll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind. 1

    Infrared rays and their effect on the human body

Realizing The Benefits of Far Infrared Rays

Results have shown that the effects of Far Infrared Rays on the human body are an improvement in cleansing. The absorption of the infrared rays by the body begins with the elimination of carbon dioxide. All living bodies have toxins (waste material, poisons) which accumulate at the body joints. Improvement in the body system is felt by some people in one day, but for others it can take a few months.

The different reaction times experienced is directly related to the number of years those toxins have been left to accumulate.

Occasionally, these people will feel worse before they feel better because of the numerous years these waste materials have accumulated. There will eventually be positive evidence of improvement of the body as waste materials are eliminated from each cell. Even though this is a superior method of improving your body's health, it will take time for some diseases, and, rarely, it can take one or two years for some serious toxic disease conditions.1 Most people will notice the benefits of Long Wave Infrared Rays after a 20-30 minute treatment.
  NASA Discovered Long Wave Infrared Rays

Concrete Benefits

  Studying far infrared rays


NASA intitially discovered Far Infrared Rays (FIR). All surfaces generate FIR waves as a function of surface temperature. NASA found a special compound of alumina and silica can convert any normal energy into Far Infrared Rays in a most efficient manner at room temperature.


1. Far Infrared Rays improve our immune system by providing protection against harmful viruses and bacteria.1

2. The improvement of the body defense system represses the increase of cancer cells by accelerating blastogenesis. According to tests on animals, the increase of malignant tumors like sarcoma and melanoma were notably suppressed.2

3. Suppression and prevention of the effects of arteriosclerosis have been performed by stopping the formation of peroxide and adipose. A positive clinical effect was found with patients who had blood circulation troubles.3

4. Other diseases which showed notable improvement with this treatment include rheumatoid arthritis, paralysis3, diabetes4, occlusion by arteriosclerosis3, and raynaud disease5.


NASA found a special compound of alumina and silica can convert any normal energy into Far Infrared Rays in a most efficient manner at room temperature. The materials containing thes compounds will generate more FIR than ordinary materials. The discovery of these mineral oxides and their capability to generate FIR waves was made by NASA.

Richway just took the ball and ran with it. Amethysts generate FIR waves and so does the Kurare' Super Fiber Materials, both of which have been incorporated into the BioMat.



How does a BioMat differ from a heating pad?



Far Infrared Rays & Medical Treatment

Medical Treatment with Long Wave Infrared Rays:

Metabolism: promotes the processes of life support by which a substance is assimilated, or eliminated, by the body. Far infrared rays activate this process.1

Blood Circulation: Pharmacologists say that improving blood circulation is very difficult. Far infrared rays promote blood circulation which invigorates cells and eliminates waste materials and harmful fat.1

Hypertension: Hypertension and arteriosclerosis are major causes of heart disease and kindey trouble in middle aged people. Improved blood circulation will lower blood pressure and the autonomic nervous system is greatly helped by the heating effect.1

Low Blood Pressure: Symtoms of low blood pressure are frequent dizziness and fatigue. There is normally no cure except for rest and enough sleep. The heat treatment method will promote perspiration and give energy to the body returning blood pressure to normal.1

Dementia, Mental Disease of the Elderly: It is believed that Long Wave Infrared Rays improve blood circulation and metabolism which reduce symptoms of senility. 1

Cancer Prevention: It is believed that everyone has some cancer cells, mixed with our healthy cells somewhere in the body. If we are in a weakened state due to over-eating or fatigue, we are susceptible to developing cancer over time withh the accumulation of the harmful food products we consume. Read "The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees" By Former director of Yokohama General Hospital, Nobuhiro Yoshimizu,M.D.Ph.D.

Diabetes is caused by metabolic problems. Although results are not immediate, it is very helpful to have Far Infrared Rays cause perspiration wich will gradually ease these symptoms.

Lymphatic Gland: This gland controls and balances a bodily liquid consisting chiefly of blood plasma and white blood cells. This effects the entire body including muscles, intestines and nerves which eliminates waste materials.1

Traffic Accident Victim: The - Ion treatment is very helpful for accident victims who suffer from damage to their autonomic nervous system. The pain experienced by the victim is often so serious that only they can realize the degree of the effect. They can get notable relief from the - Ion treatment in balancing the autonomic nervous system.6

Rheumatism: An inflammation fo the joint similar to arthritis which causes severe pain in joints and muscles. The warm heat and Ion treatment improves blood circulation, revializes old tissue and promotes production of enzymes.

Menopause: When a female reaches 45-50 years of age, she usually experiences symptoms such as feeling hot or cold, hypochondria, dizziness, headaches and anxiety. These symptoms can usually be relieved within a short period of time with a infrared therapy. The Biomat produces far infrared rays.7

Stress: Stress is huge reason millions of people die each year. Many diseases are the result of simple stress. In the opinion of some people in the medical world, up to 75% of all diseases are caused by stress. Stress can be greatly reduced, or eliminated, by using Long Wave Infrared Rays and - Ion Treatment. By perspiring and relaxing, a satisfied mental and physical feeling is experienced. Many beneficial effects include weight loss, body odor elimination, improved skin condition, elimination of harmful minerals from the body, energy replaces fatigue, various symptoms of lumbago disappear and you end up feeling refreshed. 1


Healing Light

Infrared rays which are at the opposite side of the spectrum are health kinds that give you warmth and relaxation. Just as they do in natural sunlight. You'll feel those tired muscles relaxed as helpful dry heat not only warms the surface of your skin, but also penetrates into your skin for deep, soothing comfort.


How To Generate Infrared Rays

The generation of Infrared Rays is accomplished by coating a metallic or ceramic surface with special ceramic material that is mixed with mineral oxides such as silica (SiO2), alumina (AI2O3), etc. Depending upon the mixtures of the compounds, the surface can generate different wave lengths. When these coated surfaces are heated by means of conventional electric or gas means, the surface generates Infrared Rays.

The method of generating Infrared Rays is accomplished by passing electric current through carbon. When an electric current flows through carbon, the carbon generates Infrared Rays. In practice, they impregnate cotton sheets with a special carbon compound, and let the current flow from one side of the sheet to the other. Here again, the amount of Infrared Rays generated can be regulated by controlling the magnitude of electric current, or the duration of the conduction time by using a thermal sensor. They convert AC into DC first so that the carbon sheet does not generate more than 60 cycle induced current for the user.

Infrared Rays generating materials mixed with fabrics, paper, plastics and ceramics. As mentioned before, all surfaces radiate FIR waves as a function of surface temperature. However, this special compound of alumina and silica can convert any normal energy into Infrared Rays in a most efficient manner at room temperature, the materials containing these compounds will generate more Infrared Rays than ordinary materials. The discovery of these mineral oxides and their capability to generate Infrared Rays was made by NASA. Learn more about infrared rays and the Biomat. Logo
