How Infrared Blankets Work
Infrared energy is safe to use and can be beneficial to one’s health. Far infrared light (FIR) is used to relieve arthritis, joint pain, stiff muscles, and injuries. FIR infrared ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum. The human body can absorb FIR and transform it into heat energy. This works to promote better blood circulation and helps rid the body of toxins and waste through sweating. Additionally, oxygen is moved throughout the body to speed up healing and move nutrients through the body.
What Researchers Say About FIR:
FIR lights have also been used to aid in the relief of arthritis, joint pain, stiff muscles, and injuries to tendons and ligaments. While also promoting a faster healing effect. Infrared heat is known as “radiant” heat. Essentially, it is a form of energy that heats objects directly without having to heat the air in between.
Why Would You Want to Sweat So Much?
Sweat functions similarly to a garbage collector. While 99% of what sweat brings to the surface of the skin is water. The remainder is, for the most part, unwanted waste. Sweating is such an effective detoxifier that it draws out the lactic acid causing stiff muscles. It also flushes out toxic metals that the body may absorb from polluted environments. Sweat also has many benefits. For example, the extra salt in sweat is generally thought to help with mild cases of hypertension.
Antiperspirants, smog, synthetic clothing, and a physically idle lifestyle all contribute to clogged pores and less sweating. These effects can be reversed with a sweat bath.
