When I'm being told that something can help me lose weight, detox nasty junk from my body and reduce pain - all without me needing to change my diet or exercise- it is usually about 3 o'clock in the morning and I'm watching a"too good to be true" infomercial.
Well, hang on to your hats, because (looking at you with a very straight face) I would like to introduce you one of my most favorite things.
It is actually everything it claims to be, the real makoy, a dream come true.. and yes... you really can lose weight, relieve pain, flush your system without changing your diet and preferable not moving a muscle.
If you haven't heard the latest buzz word "far infrared" yet, then its time you get acquainted .
It is something that I believe- completely without exaggeration- could change your life.
What is Far-Infrared Heat?Anyone who's been on planet earth a while knows that the sun is our primary source of radiant energy, light and heat.
The sun produces and sends earth bound "waves". Many "electromagnetic" waves.
The full span -there are 7 waves- of which is referred to as the electromagnetic spectrum.
The light spectrum (the light that we see) is only a small piece of the pie, and it is the only electromagnetic waves that can be seen.
However, there are still more unseen waves that come from the sun.
Perhaps, you are familiar with the terms, gamma rays, x-rays, ultra violet rays, microwaves and radio waves? They are some of those unseen waves.
** Learn some really cool stuff about these waves here and become a wave genius **
These waves vary in their wavelengths---some are long and others are short.
But, of course, not all of this energy is beneficial.
Although life needs energy from the sun, too much sunlight can be damaging.
We are all familiar with the warning of ultra violet rays and the damage they can cause.
There is, however, one more ray in this line up which is getting some serious attention.
It is the " INFRARED" ray.
Interestingly, infrared heat accounts for 49% of heating the earth's surface and is not dangerous like Ultra Violet rays (UV) .
Infrared rays are classified in 3 different distinctions: Near IR Rays, Medium IR Rays, FAR Infrared Rays.
Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat is a form of naturally occurring energy that heats objects by direct light conversion (DLC).
This means that only the object receives the heat and it does not raise the temperature of the surrounding free air.
Meet the Far-Infrared Sauna
Traditional steam saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air.
FIR saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, FIR saunas heat the body directly. (DLC remember?)
You know that feeling when you catch a nap in the sunshine?
When you feel you are getting warmer right down into the very core of your being?
mmm.... almost heavenly, right?
That's what FIR heat does.
This type of energy travels 2-3" deep into the body (deeper than any other surface heat) to increase circulation and nourish damaged tissue.
It provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight but it does it without the addition of the damaging rays that come with the sun.
