The Negative Ion Can Only Be Found In Clean Air

n order to have a healthy life in our modern day society, we cannot ignore effects of "Ions". There are many Ions in the air we breathe, and the percentage and number of Positive (+) Ions and Negative (-) Ions change depending on the time and place. An Ion is a particle which has electricity. An Atom is the smallest particle that exists in the composition of any material. It is the basic element of the nucleus. Ions are being made in the air we breathe so fast that 10 to 20 Ions Per Cubic Centimeter are being made each second. There are 200 to 500 Ions in 1 Cubic Centimeter of ordinary outdoor air, and 100 to 200 Ions in 1 Cubic Centimeter of clean indoor air.

  Negative Ions are most abundant in fresh air
Using Synthetic Fabrics  

When we wear synthetic fabrics, the calcium in our blood discharges in our urine. As a result, our blood becomes acidified and neurosis (nerve disorder) may occur causing a tired feeling. Synthetic fabrics decrease negative ions. Because of this, the amount of glucose in our blood increases. Usually, the blood sugar level of a human being is 100mg per 100 cubic centimeter which is automatically controlled by the body. If the control function changes, then the blood sugar level may increase or decrease abnormally which can cause various symptoms. A typical disease when the blood sugar level increases is diabetes.

A Universe of Ions  

Benefits of Negative Ion Treatment

Many studies of the relationship of Negative Ions to our health have been made by professional researchers who agree that our health is dependent on the amount and the quality of Ions in the air.

On the subject of Ions, the world famous A.D. Moore (A professor at Michigan University) stated the following: "Most people agree that if we can control the amount of ions in our everyday life, it will have a positive effect on our health. Breathing air with a certain type of Ion can be helpful as a medical treatment such as healing a wound. In this way, Ions help improve our health, and the Negative Ion performs an especially important role.

The human body consists of billions of cells, and each is enclosed by a cell membrane. This cell membrane performs many important roles like absorbing nutrition and eliminating waste material. The function of the entire cell (including the cell membrane) can be normalized if there are enough Negative Ions in and outside of the cell.

The reverse holds true if there is a lack of - Ions and too many + Ions within a cell. Thus, absorption of nutrition and elimination of waste material can not be done effectively. As a result, stress, mental focus and mood are affected.1

Positively affected by a proper number of Ions in the body include: body temperature, allergies, heart rate, shoulder pain, lumbago, respiration, mood and headaches.1


How Do Negative Ions Make Us Healthier?

Purification of Blood: Through research done by Dr. Tanaka in Japan, it was discovered that when negative ionization is introduced, the ions in calcium and natrium (salt) in the blood increases, and the blood is purified by increasing blood alkalinity.

Reviving the Cell: When the amount of negative ions in the blood is increased, the function of a cell is activated. The electrical material exchange speeds up the cell function, and, as a result, nutrition is fully absorbed by the cell and waste material is eliminated. Metabolism is increased and the function of the cell is gradually revived.1


Exploring the world of negative ions

Increases Immunity: As the amount of negative ions increases, the Gamma Globulin in the blood increases resulting in blood rich protein and antibodies.1

Control Function of the Autonomic Nervous System: Dr. Tanaka found that negative ions control the balance in the autonomic nervous system between the insulin and adrenal functions. This provides strong resistance to diseases.


The ideal amount of negative ions for our health is 400 to 1000 per cubic centimeter of air. These numbers see to be decreasing everywhere because of the concrete jungle we live in. Avoiding synthetic material, even such as concrete, can help prevent a decrease of negative ions in your life.


How does a BioMat differ from a heating pad?



Negative Ions for our Health

Although we may know that the negative ion is good for our health, the problem is that we cannot all live in the forest, in the field or by a mountain or sea where the negative ions are available in abundance. Additionally, if we absorb the negative ions from the air, the efficiency is very low. The absorption rate is only 15-20%. For example, in a hot spring which usually has a high negative ion density of 2000, the absorbed negative ions would only be 300 to 400.

Therefore, using a negative ion treatment such as the biomat is a much more effective and desirable way for modern health management. By using the negative ion treatment while sleeping, surprising effects can be expected by those experiencing a loss of appetite, lack of stamina or lack of energy.






Sleeping and the Negative Ion

Richway's Biomats naturally produce negative ions, making the Biomat the first product that provides this benefit previously only found in air.

Negative Ions will make your mind and body feel healthy. The 24-hour cycle we repeat daily develops a body rhythm. If this cycle is changed, we are thrown out of rythm and do not sleep well.

  Sleeping on Biomat

Famous Japanese Dr. Tanaka first developed an electronic negative ion producing medical treatment device. This proved to be a very convenient way of supplying the necessary amount of negative ions for our body without having to depend on those we receive from the air. In addition, this device can provide the necessary negative ions needed in a short period of time. In doing this, Dr. Tanaka discovered that it helped control the autonomic nervous system that controls the secretion of hormones that regulate the human body. It not only helps this system keep balance, but the sympathetic nervous system as well. Dr. Tanaka also discovered that his device helped the vitalization of cell metabolism. The Biomat incorporates Dr. Tanaka's research and device into the biomat.

Researchers have also found that when the negative ion treatment was used, that sclerosis can be relieved within as little as 90 days. Dr. Nagamo of Kumamoto Civil Hospital in Japan's Pain Research Institute discovered that the negative ion has enormous pain relieving efficiency.

The Serious Science of Negative Ions

The Research of Dr. Takada
There are a variety of theories that have come from research by Dr. Takada, Toho University's authority on negative ion treatments. These theories have become classics, not only in Japan, but world-wide. During his research on the Ionization Phenomenon, Dr. Takada realized that negative ion loading had good effects on the physiological functions of a living body.


The Class of Pharmacology at Jochi Medical University
Clinical research at Tokyo Dental College Hospital sponsored by the Japan Red Cross in Shinjuku found that negative ions have a positive effect in the control of the nervous system in the relief of tension. It showed that the results were good, in a short period of time, with regard to headache and neurasthenia relief.

Medical Science Class at Daepan Municipal University
At the Public Hygene Class at Shinsa University, clinical research showed the following: most people experienced good effects in relation to their internal organs after a few weeks use of the BioMat. The stomach showed the fastest effects, and the function of the liver was improved which counteracted many poisons. Another result was the elimination of constipation and stomach pain as well as a fast recovery from fatigue.

Institute Reports of Dr. Koudo Michio
Dr. Koudo Michio reported that symptoms of paralysis had been dramatically reduced after supplying negative ions for 30 days. After 90 days of treatment, the patient had recovered completely. Dr. Michio said that the negative ion treatment is very effective for light shoulder sclerosis, as well as paralysis due to occupational effects experienced by the nervous system.

Clinical Research Report of Dr. Nagao Katsharu
In Kumamoto Hospital in Japan, Dr. Nagayama of the Kyoto Pain Research Institute found the pain relieving efficiency of the negative ion had a notable effect on most headache and neuralgia cases.

  Negative Ions and the Nobel Prize  





The Importance of the Ion Channel in Cells

Each living cell is surrounded by a membrane which separates the world within the cell from it's exterior. In this membrane there are channels, through which the cell communicates with it's surroundings. These channels consist of single molecules or complexes of molecules and have the ability to allow passage of charged atoms, that is ions. The regulation of ion channels influences the life of the cell and it's functions under normal and pathological conditions. The Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine in 1991 was awarded for the discoveries of the function of ion channels. The two German physiologists Erwin Neher and Bert Sakmann have together developed a technique that allows the registration of the incredibly small electrical currents tha passes through a single ion channel. The technique is unique in that it records how a single channel molecule alters it's shape and in that way controls the current flow within a time frame of a few millionths of a second.

Neher and Sakmann conclusively established with their technique that ion channels do exist and how they function. They have demonstrated what happens during the opening or closing of an ion channel with a diameter corresponding to that of a single sodium or chloride ion. Several ion channels are regulated by a receptor localized to one part of the channel molecule which upon activation alters it's shape. Neher and Sakmann have shown which parts of the molecule that constitute the "sensor" and the interior wall of the channel. They also showed how the channel regulates the passage of positively or negatively charged ions. This new knowledge and this new analytical tool has, during the past ten years, revolutionized modern biology, facilitated research and contributed to the understanding of cellular mechanisms underlying several diseases, including diabetes and cystic fibrosis.
