The Healing Power of Negative Ions and Long Wave Infrared Rays

Updated on July 30, 2011

An ion is a particle which contains electricity. An Atom is the smallest particle that exists in the composition of any material. Ions are being made in the air we breathe very fast. 10 to 20 Ions Per Cubic Centimeter (CC) are being made per second. There are 200 to 500 Ions found in 1 CC of ordinary outdoor clean air, and 100 to 200 Ions in 1 CC of clean indoor air.

The role of Negative Ions on our overall health:

Many studies of the relationship between the negative Ion and our health made by professional researchers prove that our health is dependent on the amount and quality of Ions in the air.

The human body consists of billions of cells, and each cell is enclosed by a cell membrane. This cell membrane performs many important roles, and one of these is to absorb nutrients and eliminate waste material. The function of the entire cell (including the cell membrane) can be normalized, if there are enough negative Ions within and outside the cell.

The reverse holds true if there is a lack of negative Ions, and too many positive Ions present within a cell. Then absorption of nutrients and elimination of waste material can not be done effectively. As a result diseases such as hypertension, arteriosclerosis, cerebral apoplexy, cancer and many other diseases occur.

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, imbalanced 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.

How Negative Ions keep us healthy:

Negative Ions enhance our immune system. When the amount of negative Ions increase, the Gamma Globulin in the blood increases resulting in blood rich in protein and antibodies.

Negative Ions purify blood cells. According to Dr. Tanaka in Japan, when - Ionization is introduced, the Ions in calcium and natrium (common salt) in the blood increases, and the blood is purified by increased blood alkalinity.

Negative Ions control 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.

Negative Ions revive 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.

Long Wave 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 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.)

Characteristics of Long Wave Infrared Rays:

RADIATION: Radiation is one of the basic characteristics of light, and due to radiation light reaches an object without using the air. For example, the sunlight reaches the earth through the vacuum of space by radiation.

DEEP IMPACT POWER: The second characteristic of LW Infrared Rays is the deep impact power. Unlike ordinary light beams and short wave infrared rays, Long Wave Infrared Rays can penetrate deeply. Due to this, it can warm our body from the inside out, and stimulate our system rapidly

RESONANCE & 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.

The Healing Powers of Long Wave Infrared Rays:

They improve our immune system (the body's defense system) by providing protection against harmful viruses and bacteria.

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.

      "This sucks"

      Because it is pseudo-scientific mumbo-jumbo.

      Of course negative ions are essential, the chemistry in our bodies wouldn't work without them! You're not going to eliminate cell waste byproducts.

      The acidity/alkalinity of our bodies is closely regulated by the organs. Food in the stomach is acidic, in the gut it is alkaline (due to pancreatic enzymes). Any shift from the norm is rapidly corrected by the body.

      Of course LW Infrared is essential, it's basically radiated heat. And heat stops us dying from hypothermia. It also tends to improve circulation.

      Wearing a magic bracelet or putting in an air filter isn't going to have much effect on the strength of the immune system.

      Also, "Paralysis" is not a disease it is a symptom.

      Thank you for your comment.

      But I would appreciate if you kindly let us know why you left such a comment.

      Just saying "this sucks" is not enough for us.

      We need to know why it sucks and how it sucks and probably a bit more...
