Biomat Product Information
How the Biomat Works
The Biomat has three primary therapeutic components, each of which contributes to the effectiveness of the product. These therapeutic components are:
- The generation of Far Infrared Rays (FIR)
- The generation of Negative Ions
- Focusing this energy through a matrix of Amethyst Crystal
The deep penetrating power of Far Infrared Rays stimulates every system of the body from the inside out. As Infrared is radiated into the body, it resonates with the frequencies of organic molecules and cells causing them to vibrate, heat up and expand. In turn, blood vessels, capillaries, nerve endings and organelles expand, making the body feel fully charged and energized in just the same way a bell struck at regular intervals vibrates and moves faster and faster. This causes a net increase in metabolism helping cells to divide faster, nervous signals to move faster and healing to occur at a much accelerated rate
The Negative Ions stimulate all of the cell membranes of the body causing their ion channels to become active. This helps to alkalize all cells by removing cellular waste and toxins. Negative Ions also convert cells from “Fight or Flight” (Stress) mode, to Reproductive, Normal Functioning (Happy) Mode causing a sense of Deep Relaxation in the mind and body. Just as negative ions clean our air, they also clean out our cells.
Amethyst Crystals have been known to deliver both infrared and negative ions naturally. In this case the Amethyst crystal is not only used to focus the FIR energy of the Biomat but also helps to calm and protect the mind and nervous system.
This combination of therapy using FIR and Negative Ions traveling through a matrix of amethyst crystal delivers healing frequencies to the body creating a unique method of accelerated cellular regeneration which aids in many different modalities of healing.
These therapeutic components of the Biomat works to remove blockages creating better communication between the brain, the autonomic and sympathetic nervous systems and all organs of the body to balance and stabilize the bodies systems and strengthen the body's own self-healing power.
Combining the healing properties of far infrared light, negative ions and amethyst crystal creates a unique healing environment. To counteract the effects of toxins, harmful electromagnetic radiation, stress and illness, regular use of the BioMat can bring the body into a state where wellness and recovery and relaxation are a part of everyday life.
The thousands of testimonials from proponents of the BioMat attest to its validity.
The BioMat Works!
It’s time for a brief history lesson
Lets go back, back, a way back to the beginning of man. If you believe in evolution the beginning of modern man started an estimated 60,000 years ago. If you believe in creation the beginning started at the Garden of Eden. Either way, at the dawn of man, our species was a creature of the sun. In the beginning, we were hunters or gatherers or creatures of Eden. There was no air conditioning. Our bodies, our cells, were used to and needed the energy of the sun to maintain good health. In fact we evolved where we need the light of the sun to synthesize essential vitamin D among others to maintain good health.
Anthropologists have used mental capacity as a way of classifying pre-man with modern man. The pre-man brain as with animals past and present were able to process along with instinct two ways of being. One way of being was “Fight or Flight” (Sympathetic System). This is the mode characterized when an animal is threatened or has its back against a wall. In this mode the animal flees or fights for survival and all other biological or social functions (i.e. feeding or reproduction) discontinue. Only when “Fight or Flight” are turned off do creatures search for food, reproduce or engage in instinctual activity. We find this true in the higher brain as well. Ancient civilizations thrived intellectually and culturally only when not faced with annihilation by conquering armies, or devastated by drought or lack of animals to hunt. The “Rest and Relaxation System” (Parasympathetic) is present in man in the absence of “Fight or Flight” and is responsible for the massive growth of population, culture, economic and social evolution in civilized nations.
The Curative Power of Amethyst
The Greeks in 400BC thrived as the greatest civilization on Earth able to operate in “Rest and Relaxation Mode” for many centuries. Conquering many lands and protecting their borders, they were able to build great halls of learning, and celebrated life and love with their many deities. One of their favorite deities was Dionysus. The God of wine represents not only its intoxicating power, but also its social and beneficial influences. He is viewed as the promoter of civilization, a lawgiver, and lover of peace, as well as the patron deity of agriculture and the arts. He was also known as the Liberator, freeing one from one's normal self, by madness or ecstasy.
Unfortunately, one of the side effects of courting Dionysus too closely is the hangover. In order to relieve its citizens of the dreadful morning after, Greek Healers found a curing gemstone. A curious purple rock they bequeathed Amethystos – The Amethyst – literally translated as “Not Intoxicated”. These early physicians would lay patients on beds of amethyst, cover them with blankets of woven amethyst, sit them in caves where amethyst was present in the walls, or crush the stones into a powder and mix them into an elixir to be taken internally. The results were a calming, grounding and soothing affect delivered to their patients.
A few centuries later, in the east, holy men and physicians made it known the healing qualities of amethyst were characterized as purifying, pacifying and transitional. It was the gemstone which could easily transform one from “Flight or Fight Mode” to “Rest and Relaxation Mode”. Amethyst has the ability to transform lower energies into higher. Amethyst is known to calm and protect the mind. It soothes those who have engaged in constant rigorous mental activity. It has been deemed "nature's tranquilizer" by many healers because of it's effectiveness in relaxing not only the mind but also the nervous system. Those who wear amethyst jewelry and who have been recommended to wear this stone for healing purposes have done so because of its tranquil qualities and its ability to reduce negativity and alleviate anxiety.
Amethyst was identified as a crystal that functions favorably in clearing certain types of blockage and in aligning the Chakras. By transforming energies on all levels amethyst also has the ability to balance and stabilize energies located within certain Chakra areas. Amethyst is related to and found to heal and align ailments of the 6th and 7th Chakras, which are the Third Eye or Brow (6th) and the Crown (7th).
Amethyst aides the 6th Chakra, Third Eye, by opening and heightening awareness. Its calming qualities help to awaken and ease stress in this area. It helps to also heighten perspective and allows development of strong introspection (inner-self view).
The 7th Chakra, or the Crown controls the energies used in any mental activity. Amethyst helps to relieve strain or tension in this area. It is considered a helpful aide in meditation and in the facilitation of psychic visual enhancement. It's tranquil sobering effect allows those who are energetic to relax. It also is a cure for insomnia and nightmares.
As the Greeks gave way to the Romans, the Huns and finally the Europeans of the later centuries, modern science took apart the Amethyst. It is a form of SiO2 (Silicone Oxide) and gets its predominantly violet color from alternate layers of right-handed and left-handed quartz. Its hardness is rated a 7 on the Mohs scale with 1 being Talc (Chalk) and 10 being a diamond. This explains why it fractures quite easily and that it is rare to find large cuts of Amethyst Jewelry anywhere in the world. Thus Amethyst has an irregular pattern in the quartz world and produces some yet scientifically unexplained characteristics with its refraction, conduction and emission of light. Recently it has been discovered that the violet color is attributed to certain iron constituents in connection with a naturally occurring ability to store and radiate light over time. Maybe scientists found out what the early healers already knew.
On December 13, 1958 America sent Gordo into space on the Jupiter AM-13 spacecraft. Able and Baker went into space on May 28, 1959 on the Jupiter AM-18 mission.
What scientists learned from these historic flights was that conducted heat alone was not enough to keep these monkeys happy in the extreme cold encountered in the vacuum of space. In order to simulate the sunshine encountered on earth scientists designed a suit capable of producing Far Infrared Radiation to insulate the apes on future space missions. The apes came back more vibrant with better physiology then there predecessors.
Far Infrared Radiation (FIR), what is it about this energy source our bodies enjoy. Why is it that we feel so good in the warm sun light? What makes us feel good when another human touches us and we feel the heat and warmth of their touch?
- Far Infrared Radiation is that part of the electromagnetic spectrum with longer wavelengths.
- The visible light spectrum ranges from .4 microns to .7 microns in wavelength.
- Ultraviolet, X-Rays and Gamma-Rays have much shorter wavelengths then visible light and cause destruction of organic molecules with exposures of any duration.
- Near Infrared and Medium Infrared Light ranges from .74 microns to 4.0 microns in wavelength and is visible to some animals but is invisible to the human eye.
- Far Infrared Light ranges from 4.0 microns to 400 microns and is harmless to organic molecules at the lower end of this range.
- Beyond 400 microns are the Ultra-High Infrared, Microwave and Radio Wavelengths.
How does FIR transfer into heat?
The laws of thermodynamics state there are three ways heat can be transferred.
- Conduction – Heat traveling from an area of high temperature to an area of low temperature within an object.
- Convection – Heat circulation in an atmosphere of water or gas.
- Radiation – Electromagnetic transfer even within a vacuum.
Radiation is different from the other two because with Conduction and Convection the medium must be heated before transfer may begin. Radiation transmits heat directly and spontaneously. Radiation does not need a carrier.
How does FIR create such a deep heating in the body?
Molecules that form an object have different vibration and rotation cycles depending on many subatomic principles. These rotations and transmutations of Carbon and Oxygen containing and organic molecules in the body tend to resonate at regular cycles. This resonation is much like the frequency of a swing moving back and forth. When these molecules encounter an FIR wavelength of a resonant frequency it is much like giving that swing a push at exactly the right moment to project it further or make it more energetic. This phenomenon is called “resonant absorption”.
Compounds containing Nitrogen or Chlorine do not resonate at the same frequencies as FIR and thus do not heat up or become more energetic as they encounter FIR.
The Biomat Produces FIR in a wavelength from 5 to 15 microns.
By observing the chart above it is apparent most compounds in the body cannot resonate with low or medium infrared nor infrared much above the range emitted by the Biomat.
Because of the Resonant Absorption property of FIR the heating penetration is much deeper then through absorption and convection and greater still if the FIR source is in contact with the body as with the Biomat.
So what are the Physiological effects and health benefits of laying on the Biomat and receiving FIR Therapy?
- Stimulation of the Autonomic Nervous System
- The Autonomic Nervous System controls homeostasis, that is the constancy of the body i.e. Heart pumping, body temperature, breathing, volume of fluids etc.
- Symptoms of ANS malfunctioning include headache, dizziness, weakness, insomnia, cold body parts, overactive sweating, fatigue, inflammation and cancer.
- Much like acupuncture or acupressure, FIR entering through all of the conductivity points at once energizes the ANS and helps to remove any blockages helping to insure open communication pathways between the brain and all of the organs of the body.
- Stimulation of the Circulatory System
- The circulatory system provides nutrients to all of the cells through Arteries, Veins, Lungs and Capillaries and other organs.
- Symptoms of a poor circulatory system are high blood pressure, arrhythmias, shortness of breath, and pain or loss of feeling in the extremities.
- By taking the deep heating effect of FIR, capillaries dilate and blood circulates more freely. This in turn prevents metabolic disorder such as blood stasis, activates tissue cells, activates secretion of enzymes and frees toxins and metabolic wastes for excretion.
- Stimulation of Sweat
- Sweat helps to secrete toxins from subcutaneous fat layers under the skin.
- Symptoms include cancer, pain, muscle tightness and fatigue.
- Sweat helps to secrete heavy metals, carcinogens, food processing agents, lactic and free fatty acids, and surplus salt trapped in subcutaneous fat layers. This is especially important for people unable to exercise.
- Other benefits in using The Biomat and FIR Therapy
- Reduction of Stress due to increased circulation and downtime used while spending time on the mat.
- Relief of Fatigue due to increased circulation and emission of lactic acid from muscle tissue.
- Relief of Stiff Muscles due to increased circulation and secretion of lactic acid from muscle tissue.
- Soft Tissue Repair due to molecular level rebuilding processes increased enhancing DNA synthesis through all stages of repair.
- Relief from Arthritis due to increased circulation around joint areas an increased metabolic rate and downtime allowing the body to furnish building components for cartilage repair.
- Immune System Boost due to simulation of infection causing an autoimmune reaction.
- Lower Blood Pressure due to the increased area of capillary, arteries and veins.
- Weight Control due to the breakdown of toxins, salts, acids and lipids stored in subcutaneous fat layers.
What about Negative Ions?
Negative ions are what make you feel so good. Positive ions make you feel slow and sluggish. Why is this? What are negative ions?
When we talk about electricity, a wire for instance that is attached to two terminals of a battery electrons will flow across the wire from the negative terminal to the positive. The positive ions of the wire stay put while the electrons jump from positive ion to positive ion across the wire. The electrons or negative ions move, while the positive ions stay put. Active vs. sluggish.
In the column of atmosphere surrounding the earth cosmic rays from the sun strike the atmosphere and ionize the gasses. This means that the gasses break up into negative ions and positively charged particles. Electrically, the sky has positive potential with respect to the earth's ground potential; therefore, the positive ions will be attracted to the ground and the negative ions will travel upwards toward the clouds in the sky. Near the surface of the ground, there are more negative ions than positive ions, because the positive ions are dissipated by the negative ground nearby.
Nature's air cleaning system
Both positive ions and negative ions attach to pollutants or dust in the air, and they are either dragged down to the ground if the positive ions are attached to them or they are pulled up to the clouds if negative ions are attached to them. This is nature's way of cleansing the air.
In the highly polluted urban areas, cosmic rays cannot come down very low because of the thick layers of pollution. Also, concrete, stone and synthetic materials attract positive ions displacing the negative ones. Therefore, there is a negative ration of negative ions to positive needed to sterilize the atmosphere and create vitality. High in the mountains and near the ocean there is a high concentration of negative ions. The counts of negative ions are expressed in terms of the number of ions in a cubic centimeter (cc). Up in the mountains and near the ocean the negative ion counts are in the hundreds per cc, while in the city, the counts are generally in the single digits.
Effects of ions on health and mood
It is reported that positive ions create depressed moods while negative ions provide euphoria. There are several brands of household negative ion generators on the market for this very reason. They are trying to simulate mountain top atmospheric condition by shooting out high counts of negative ions into the room.
One thing that the users of the negative ion generators notice is that their room walls get dirty because the negative ions cling to the dirt and dust in the air and they are carried to the walls which are positive potential relative to the minus ions. One way to look at it is that the dirt goes to the walls instead of going into your lungs. One will notice also that when the Biomat is left on all the time the negative ions will stick to dust particles and plate out on the walls of a room.
There are a couple of theories as to why negative ions give euphoric feelings while positive ions create depression. The first theory is that negative ions can move about in the body very freely. Since a negative ion means an extra electron attached to a molecule, the movement of a negative ion means the movement of an electron, which is easy. Fast moving electrons give a molecular level massage and loosen up particles stuck in some places in the body.
Positive ions are molecules with one electron missing. They provide electric fields, but the movement of an electron "hole" is slow. In other words it provides tension, but the relief of tension by the movement of an ion (electron hole) is quite slow.
When ions travel through your body, they will travel through the path of highest conductivity. High conductivity points correspond to the acupuncture points. So, when these ions travel through your body, they enter and leave your body through the acupuncture points, stimulating the body. Independent from your nerve network, there is an electric conduction network in your body.
If there were no high conduction network path, traveling electrons would disturb the nerve system. It is similar to a lightning rod on a building, protecting the building's plumbing and electrical wires from lightning. A traveling electron is stimulating substances along this conduction network. Acupuncture with needles also does the same thing.
The second theory is that negative ions increase alkalinity in the body while the positive ions increase acidity. As we know the water molecules are split into H+ and OH-. Negative ions will neutralize H+ ions and the remaining OH- ions will ionize normal unionized alkaline minerals. The net effect is to increase the alkalinity of the body. The reverse effects, i.e., the acidification of the body would be achieved with the positive ions.
These ions eventually leave the body. If they accumulate, you will get an electric shock when you touch a metallic object. The best such example is that when you are on a dry area walking on the carpet with rubber sole shoes on, you build up static electricity in your body. Then, if you touch a door knob, you get shocked. Ions and 'free radicals' cannot be stored in your body without changing your body's electric potential. Eventually they leave your body. But before they leave, they can change your body chemistry.
How do Negative Ions Change your Body Chemistry?
Each living cell is surrounded by a membrane which separates the world within the cell from its exterior. In this membrane there are channels, through which the cell communicates with its surroundings. Those 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 its functions under normal and pathological conditions. The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for 1991 was awarded for the discoveries of the function of ion channels. The two German cell physiologists Erwin Neher and Bert Sakmann have together developed a technique that allows the registration of the incredibly small electrical currents (amounting to a Pico ampere - 10-12A) that passes through a single ion channel. The technique is unique in that it records how a single channel molecule alters its shape and in that way controls the flow of current within a time frame of a few millionths of a second.
This alteration of shape and consequential admittance of negative ions provides the following:
- It provides for a molecular massage adjusting the size and shape of each and every cell in the body as it admits ions through cell channels.
- It provides for the admittance of negative ions and the recombination of these negative ions with positive free radicals. The free radicals are thus neutralized and easily excreted from the cell into either sweat or into the blood stream to be processed through the Liver and Kidneys and eventually out through urine or feces.
From the early amethyst healing beds, through the discovery of the infrared healing attributes NASA used to developed the modern spacesuit climaxing with the Nobel Prize Winning work of Neher and Sakmann, Richway Scientists have developed a healing instrument that surpasses any technology in the marketplace today. With FIR light penetrating the body 6-8 inches with energy focused and excited through a field of high quality Amethyst Crystal and supplemented by a thorough wash of negative ions, the body receives what it needs to heal itself in no way provided to before.
One not only gets all of the healing energy to flush toxins from the body, clear blocked nervous pathways and negative ions to alkalize the body, but also provides oneself for a time of day to relax, meditate transforming from the “Flight and Fight Mode” brought on by our stressed out existence, to the ‘Peace and Relaxation Mode” we are meant to maintain as a higher evolutionary creature, and find that space of peace of mind where one can rejuvenate and allow the mind to relax or explore in the comfort of ones own home.
Ions and Infrared Rays
Chapter 1 - Negative Ions
1. The Negative Ion is Found Only in Clean Air - In order to have a healthy life in our modern day society, we cannot ignore the 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 clean air, and 100 to 200 Ions in 1 Cubic Centimeter of clean indoor air.
2. Benefits of Negative Ion Health Treatment - On this subject, the world famous A.D. Moore (A Professor at University of Michigan) 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, and Ion helps improve our health, and the Negative Ion performs an especially important role.
3. Reasons Our Health is Improved - As you may already know, the Ion does play a very important role in keeping us healthy, and the Negative Ion is the major health benefactor. Negative Ions are found everywhere in the air, and are a major element that provides energy to the human body. The human body consists of billions of cells, and each is enclosed by a cell wall. This cell wall performs many important roles, and one of these is to absorb nutrition and eliminate waste material. The function of the entire cell (including the cell wall) can be normalized, if there are enough Negative Ions within the cell, and Negative Ions outside the cell. The reverse holds true if there is a lack of Negative Ions, and too many Positive Ions within a cell. This, absorption of nutrition and elimination of waste material can not be done effectively. As a result adult diseases such as hypertension, arteriosclerosis, cerebral apoplexy, and cancer occurs. Other afflictions caused by and improper number of Ions in the body include anemia, allergies, infirmity, shoulder pain, lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia and headaches, and habitual constipation, gastroenteritis, hepatitis, kidney trouble, unbalanced autonomic nervous system, and insomnia. Too few Negative Ions in our body can cause many diseases, and have a dangerous effect on our overall health.
4. How Do Negative Ions Make Us Healthier?
- The Purification of Our Blood - Through research done by Dr. Tanaka in Japan, it was discovered that when – Ionization is introduced, the Ions in calcium and natrium (salt) in the blood increases, and the blood is purified by increasing blood alkaline.
- 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.
- Increases Immunity - As the amount of Negaitve Ions increases, the Gamma Globulin is the blood increases resulting in blood rich in protein and antibodies.
- The 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.
5. Using Synthetic Fabrics
- The Calcium in Our Blood Decreases - When we wear Synthetic Fabrics, Negative Ions are decreased, and the calcium in our blood discharges in our urine. As a result, our blood becomes acidified, and neurosis (a nerve disorder) may occur causing a tired feeling. Synthetic Fabrics decrease Negative Ions.
- The Blood Sugar Level Increases - When we wear Synthetic Fabrics, Negative Ions are decreased, and the amount of glucose in our blood increases. Usually, the blood sugar level of a human being is 100 mg 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 severely is diabetes. Many professionals think that a reason for the current increase of this disease may be caused by the use of Synthetic Fabrics.
- The Amount of Vitamin "C" in Serum Decreases - Wearing Synthetic Fabrics decreases the amount of Vitamin C in serum (liquid component of blood) abnormally. As a result, the resistance of our body is weakened causing stress. Vitamin C deficiency is also caused by eating too many fast foods, or too few fruits and green and yellow vegetables.
6. Negative Ions and Our Health - A recent newspaper article reported that a pregnant woman developed eczema (itching skin inflammation) because she often came in contact with an internal concrete wall which was near her bed. Living in this recently built concrete apartment building also placed her in a high risk category for miscarriage. The ideal amount of Negative Ions for our health is 400 to 1000 Per Cubic Centimeter of air. These numbers seems to be decreasing everywhere because of the concrete jungle we live in. Because of this, we are experiencing serious effects, such as Headaches, Insomnia, and Fatigue of our body and mind.
7. The Relationship Between Sleeping and the Negative Ion - The development of a product that artificially produces Negative Ions has been incorporated into the production of a mattress that provides the benefits previously found only in the air.
- A Bedding Product that has a Plaeasant Heat Producing Method of Passing on the Negative Ions to the Body is Found in the Biomat - Many professionals helped to develop this high quality Biomat product which gives you a refreshed feeling all day after a sound night’s sleep on it.
- Become Healthy While You Sleep (Using the Biomat) - Negative Ions will make your mind and body feel healthy. The 24-hour cycle we repeat daily of rising with the sun, and going to bed at sundown, develops a body rhythm. If this cycle is changed, we are thrown out of rhythm, and do not sleep well. Our sleeping cycle has 4 different levels of depth of sleep. There is a repetition of these levels 4 to 5 times during the night until we wake 7 to 8 hours later.
8. A Good Night's Sleep - Recently, Electronic Engineers developed a Negative Ion-producing mattress. The famous Japanese Dr. Tanaka first developed and electronic Negative Ion 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 on a short period of time. It also gives a variety of pleasant effects such as:
- The Control of the Autonomic Nervouos System - This system controls the internal secretion of hormones that regulate the human body. There is a sympathetic nervous system that increases the energy of the human body. It acts to stabilize and keep these two systems in balance.
- The Vitilization of Cell Metabolism - A living cell exchanges nutrition and waste material through cell walls. When – Ions increase, the material exchange is slowed. If Negative Ions are provided, this function is returned to its normal status. In this way, the Negative Ions vitalize the metabolism of the tissue.
- The Paralysis Symptom is Eased - Slight shoulder sclerosis, an occupational disease, causes paralysis of the fingers, arm, and shoulder. If the symptoms of this dreaded disease continue, the entire body becomes paralyzed. The cause has not yet been discovered. However, it has been reported that these symptoms were relieved within 90 days when a Negative Ion treatment was used.
- Relief of Pain - According to the clinical research report of Dr. Nagamo of Kumamoto Civil Hospital, and Dr. Maiyama of Kyoto Hospital in Japan’s Pain Research Institute, the pain relieving efficiency of the Negative Ion has been acknowledged through its notable effect on numerous headache and neuralgia test cases.
9. When Negative Ions are Increased - 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 a 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 to 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 Bio-Mat is a much more effective and desirable way for modern health management. By using a Negative Ion treatment while sleeping, surprising effects can be expected by those experiencing loss of appetite, lack of stamina, or lack of energy.
10. The Healing Effects of negative Ions
- 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 a Tokyo Dental College Hospital sponsored by the Japan Red Cross in Shinjuku: 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.
- In The Medical Science Class at Daepan Municipal University - At the Public Hygiene Class at Shinsa University, clinical research showed the following: most people experienced good effects in relation to their internal organs after a few weeks’ usage. 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 Koudo Michio said that the Negative Ion treatment is very effective for light shoulder sclerosis, as well as symptoms of paralysis in fingers, arms, and the whole body due to occupational effects experienced by the nervous system.
- The 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.
- Additional Reports From Germany Stated that Dr. Sheres and Dr. Ko Gyo Yang Myung - found that a lack of Negative Ions can cause mental problems such as neurasthenia, neurosis, and loss of memory.
Chapter 2 - Long Wave Infrared Rays
From past experience, we have learned that Long Wave Infrared Rays are beneficial, however, we did not understand the principles of Long Wave Infrared Rays. The secret of placing a warm tile on our stomach and rubbing it when we had pain, the nice relaxed feeling we have after sleeping in a warm bed, the good flavor charcoal or natural stone gives barbecue food, or the healing of diseases by a clay sauna are all the results of the utilization of Long Wave Infrared Rays.
1. Understanding Long Wave Infrared Waves - During research of the heat effect of the seven colors, it was found that the temperature rises when the color is changed from purple toward red, and even without color after passing red. This light (with a strong heat function) was named Long Wave Infrared Rays. The infrared ray is an electronic wave which is a sort of energy wave, and is a light within the wave length level of 0.761 ~ 1,000 micron. According to its wave length, 0.76~1.5 micron is a short wave infrared ray, 1.5~5.6 micron is a middle wave infrared ray, and 5.6~1000 micron is a long wave infrared ray which is the most useful infrared ray in our daily living. (Micron is 1M of one million.)
2. The Function of Long Wave Infrared Waves - Long Wave Infrared Rays have three characteristics.
- Radiation - 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 through the vacuum of space by radiation.
- Deep Impact Power - 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 our system.
- Resonance and Absorption - 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 / 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.
3. The Effect of Long Wave Infrared Rays on an Organism - Think about this relationship tour body. Out body consists of over 80% water, and a variety of other materials, such as, proteins, hormones, enzymes, and nerve tissue which all play and important role. 8 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.
- What is an Organism? - An organism is an organic compound that we call a living body. When the shape, composition, and movement of this body is studied, we arrive at a biological evaluation. When we further study the movement of molecules within a cell to discover the characteristics of a living body, this is called “Cytology” or “Microbiology.”
- What is a Living Body? - Through chemical analysis of a living body, we find it is composed of carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, potassium, nitrogen, phosphorous, and other basic elements which cannot be seen.
4. How Long Wave Infrared Rays Penetrate our Skin - Perspiration is directly related to body temperature. The Long Wave Infrared Rays penetrate deeply into our skin, and they eliminate waste materials through skin pores. They promote good blood circulation which helps cure hangovers, fatigue, and arthralgia. When the body’s temperature rises, perspiration begins to help control the body’s temperature. The evaporation of 1 gram of water takes about 0.6 Kcal of heat away; therefore, the role of perspiration is very important in controlling our body temperature.
The Function of Long Wave Infrared Rays - Long Wave Infrared Rays penetrate 14-15 cm 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 parts of our body. These Long Wave Infrared Rays provide a heat source that relieves shoulder pain, lumbago, and fatigue of body muscles. Moreover, perspiration helps expel unhealthy materials such as urea, nitrogen, uric acid, sodium, and chlorine, which cause kidney infections and other problems.
Chapter 3 - Realizing the Benefits
Results show an improvement in the cleansing of the entire body. The absorption of Long Wave Infrared Rays by the human 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, or it may take some people several months (2-3 months).
The different reaction times experienced between persons is explained by the fact that the health of one person can vary greatly to that of another person. Some people have a much more acidified body, and have accumulated many more waste materials than others. These persons will take longer to cure, and realize a noticeable change in their body.
Occasionally, these people will feel worse before they feel better because of the numerous years these waste materials have had to accumulate. There eventually will be a 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. Most people will notice the benefits of Long Wave Infrared Rays after a 20-30 minute treatment.
Some persons with more serious muscle problems may take 2-3 days to notice improvement, and a few cases may take a week. About one out of ten people won’t notice any reaction because they are blessed with excellent health, and are probably young. If you take your vitamins before sleeping on the mat, the effect of the Long Wave Infrared Rays greatly enhances the benefits of the vitamins.

- 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. Currently, more research studies are being performed on the effect of cancer prevention.
- 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.
- Other diseases which showed notable improvement with this treatment include rheumatoid arthritis, paralysis, diabetes, occlusion by arteriosclerosis, raynaud disease, and progressive hardening of the arteries.
Currently, the effect on many other diseases is being studied. In addition to the above mentioned diseases which have been proven by clinical and scientific experiences, people have given testimony that positive and surprising effects of healing were realized on other diseases, such as insomnia, chronic lumbago, arthralgia, menstruation pain, fatigue recovery, and maintenance of general health.
5. The Medical Treatment of Long Wave Infrared Rays and Negative Ions
- Metabolism - Promotes the processes of life support by which a substance is assimilated, or eliminated, by the body. Long Wave Infrared Rays activate this process.
- Blood Circulation - Pharmacologists say that improving blood circulation is very difficult. The Long Wave Infrared Rays and ?? Ion treatment does promote better blood circulation which invigorates cells and eliminates waste materials and harmful fat.
- Laceration, Wound from Being Cut - The effect of pain relief will depend on the size and degree of the wound. The healing period will be shortened, and the scarring effect will be greatly reduced.

- 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 overheating or fatigue, we are susceptible to developing cancer, over time, with the accumulation of harmful food products we consume. The Long Wave Infrared Rays within the range of 40ºC to 50ºC will weaken and destroy cancer cells without harming the surrounding healthy cells. There is data that suggests that 95% of ordinary malignant tumors die at a temperature of 43ºC.
- Diabetes - Diabetes is caused by metabolic problems. Although results are not immediate, it is very helpful to have the Long Wave Infrared Rays cause perspiration which 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 affects the entire body including muscles, intestines, and nerves, which eliminates waste materials.

- Traffic Accident Victim - The Negative Ion treatment is very helpful for traffic 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 effect. They can get notable relief from the Negative Ion treatment in balancing the autonomic nervous system.
- Rheumatism - Rheumatism is an inflammation of the joint similar to arthritis which causes sever pain in joints and muscles. The warm heat and Ion treatment improves blood circulation, revitalizes old tissue, and promotes production of enzymes.
- Menopause - When a female reaches 45-50 years of age, she usually experiences symptoms such as feeling cold or hot, hypochondria, dizziness, headaches, and anxiety. These symptoms can usually be relieved within a short period of time if they use this heat and Negative Ion treatment.
