Infrared and Ions and Amethyst, Oh My!


For some of us, the world of infrared, ions, and amethyst is beyond our comprehension. It sounds like something from a science fiction movie. But for those of us familiar with them and what they can do, we know that life changes by their very existence. So let’s bring it down to the basics and build from there. Many of us have heard of or are familiar with the term infrared. While researching the effects of heat on the seven colors, they found that temperature rises when the color changes from purple towards red and beyond. This light with heat is called long wave infrared rays. These infrared rays have three important characteristics. First, they produce a radiation similar to the way the sun light does, but in a healthy, healing way. Second, it has the ability to penetrate deeply into the body from the inside out. And third, is the rays resonance and absorption. Similar to the concept of when you touch a bell with your finger, an inherent number of vibrations will occur. These rays act as the vibrations ringing the bells within your body to strengthen molecules and increase energy.

Considering our bodies are made up of like 80% water, these long wave infrared rays not only warm our body, but also stimulate bodily functions. By increasing the body temperature using infrared rays, they penetrate deeply into the skin stimulating the elimination of waste materials through the pores, beginning with carbon dioxide. Materials such as nitrogen, uric acid, and chlorine are removed from the body through perspiration, which are known causes of problems such as kidney infections. This process increases blood circulation helping to cure things like hangovers, fatigue, and joint pain. These rays penetrate approximately 14-15 cm into the body, benefiting not only the muscles on the surface, but the blood vessels, lymph glands, and nerves deep down inside the body. It is believed that the long wave infrared ray improves blood circulation and metabolism which reduces the symptoms of senility by 60% making it a very good choice for treatment of mental disease. It is also known that cancers cells will be destroyed in the temperature range of 104°C to 109°C while healthy cell continue to thrive and multiply. This cancer treatment is caller hyperthermia and is very effective in treating all kinds of cancers in a non-invasive way.

Negative ions are particles in the air that have an extra electron. They are plentiful near large quantities of moving water, such as rainstorms, waterfalls, or the ocean, as well as through the use of Himalayan salt lamps. These particles tend to donate their extra election, which improves the quality of the air and provides energy to the human body. The human body is made up of billions of cells. The function of the entire cell is normalized if there are enough negative ions both inside and outside the cell. The reverse is also true. If there are not enough negative ions inside and outside the cells, conditions such as hypertension, arteriosclerosis, cerebral apoplexy, anemia, allergies, infirmity, shoulder pain, lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches, constipation, gastroenteritis, hepatitis, kidney issues, unbalanced autonomic nervous system, insomnia, and cancer develops.

Through research conducted by Dr. Tanaka of Japan, it has been discovered that negative ions introduced to the body the salt in the blood increases and purifies the blood. It was also discovered that as the negative ions in the body increase cell function is activated. This causes the nutrition to be fully absorbed, waste material to be eliminated, and metabolism is increased, reviving the function of the cells. It also increases the Gamma Globulin in the blood which in turn increases your immunity. Dr. Tanaka also found that negative ions control the balance of the autonomic nervous system between insulin and adrenal function.

Amethyst has been thought to calm and clear the mind for thousands of years, across many cultures.  The healing powers of Amethyst date back as far as the ancient Greeks who believed that it protected a person from the intoxicating effects of alcohol. The healing power of Amethyst has been used to treat toothaches, skeletal discomforts, posture, and bone and joint related sicknesses. It has also been known to treat problems within the stomach, digestive tract, the heart, hearing, the central nervous system, convulsions, various types of blood disease, and helps to balance blood sugar. It has also been found to help with better sleep and has been deemed “nature’s tranquilizer.” On the other hand, it has also been known to enhance mental strength, stability, and vigor.


The two components of far infrared rays and negative ions, are transferred through Amethyst Quartz channels which cover the entire surface of the BioMat. Amethyst Quartz is one of nature's Super Conductor which offers a steady, powerful delivery of the far infrared rays and a high vibrational frequency into the body. Amethyst Quartz is also known to be a powerful detoxifier which assists the body to combat addictions like alcohol, food and substance abuse. It helps expel toxic residues and the effects of hangovers. It also produces naturally occurring far infrared rays.

The BioMat comes in various sizes and is simple to use. They even have pet BioMats and waterproof covers! Simply plug in the mat, turn it to your preferred setting and relax. I recommend that you start slowly and build up to more time and higher temperatures on the BioMat. Starting slowly will help prevent excessive detoxification and potential discomfort. Sessions on the mat may vary in length from 30 minutes to overnight. You can also induce therapeutic sweats from 30 minutes to an hour. The amount of time you stay on the BioMat is a personal preference.Always drink plenty of water before and after your BioMat session as Far Infrared Therapy is very dehydrating, and you are burning calories the whole time you are on the mat. The benefits are cumulative, so the more you use the BioMat, the more benefits you will experience. Preheating your mat for 15-20 minutes prior to use is recommended for best results. Enhance your benefits and rehydrate with healthy minerals by drinking 1 tsp of sole with a glass of water before starting your BioMat session.
