Far Infrared Light for High-Speed Healing Frequency

Induces sleep

Sports injury recovery

Relieve anxiety

Decrease blood pressure

Accident recuperation


Far Infrared Heat is pure energy in the form of light from the invisible area of the electromagnetic spectrum. Far Infrared Heat was discovered by NASA to be the most beneficial light wave, penetrating the skin and increasing circulation to detoxify the body of harmful toxins and acid wastes.


Negative Ions for Positive Effects

Increase serotonin levels

Alleviate allergies

Minimize migraines

Subdue sinus problems



Negative ions are odorless, tasteless and invisible particles that we inhale in abundance near waterfalls, rain forests and oceans. Scientifically they are molecules with an extra electron helping to alleviate allergies, migraines and sinus problems.  Once they reach our blood stream Negative Ions have a positive effect on the rate at which Serotonin is oxidized in the bloodstream, resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy and clarity.


The Bio-Mat also delivers negative ions, which energizes the body for optimal health. The negative ions delivered through the Bio-Mat are delivered directly to the body through the skin's surface via conduction. This greatly differs from ambient air ions delivered through popular negative ion generators used for air cleaning, which NASA reported only positively affect 26% of people. The direct conduction of negative ions allows for an immediate response and change in the body's electrical field for all people, assisting them to achieve an optimal physiological state.


When negative ions are applied to the body, the calcium and sodium circulating in the blood are ionized. This increases the blood's pH and has an overall alkalizing effect on the body. Proper blood pH is essential for optimal health. It has been noted that negative ions applied to the body are helpful at regulating blood pH.


When the amount of negative ions in the blood increases, there is an increase in inter-cellular communication. Cellular metabolism is facilitated, and as a result there is an increase in cellular nutrient uptake and cellular hydration. In addition, cellular waste materials are efficiently excreted. With the increase in cellular metabolism, an optimal cell function is rapidly revived.


Indoor environments, city living, automobiles, exposure to electronic devices, EMF's (electro-magnetic fields), and environmental pollution all result in increased positive ions in the body, tilting the ratio of ions towards the positive. This results in a physiological imbalance, which may have detrimental health consequences. Too few negative ions in the body can cause a number of diseases. Some of the health problems associated with an imbalance of ions in the body include: anemia, allergies, shoulder pain, lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches, kidney problems, imbalanced autonomic nervous system function, insomnia, and fatigue.


The Bio-Mat is further enhanced with gemstone-quality amethyst crystals, known since ancient times for their calming and healing effects. The "Amethyst Effect" is a change in infrared light when refracted through amethyst crystals. Scientists experimented passing far infrared light through a variety of substances, including various gems, glasses, and plastics. Amethyst was found to be the only substance which clearly changed the spectrum of infrared light. According to scientists, waveforms mimicked patterns similar to the human voice. Crystallography shows far infrared refracted through amethyst crystals organizes far infrared into geometrical patters with higher bio-compatibility. Korean researchers propose that addition of the amethyst allows for greater increase in the utilization of the light by the human organism.


Far infrared rays penetrate six to eight inches into the human body. These rays not only benefit the skin and muscle tissue on the surface of the body, but penetrate into deeper tissues. The far infrared penetrates into the lymph glands, blood vessels, nerves, and key organs. The rays optimize the health of these tissues in a number of ways. Scientists propose that among the waves within the energy spectrum coming from the Sun, far infrared waves are by far the safest and most beneficial electromagnetic energy available for the human body, directly affecting all metabolic and cellular functions.

1. Improves Circulation & Cardiovascular Function


Far infrared waves raise body temperature, warming the blood and expanding the blood vessels. There is an increase in peripheral blood flow and volume, resulting in improved circulation and heart function.

2. Improves Immune System Function


Far infrared ray's deep heat raises body temperature, inducing an artificial and healthy fever. As the body works to combat the "fever," the body's immune system is activated and strengthened. Combined with the detoxification of harmful toxins and waste products, one's overall health and resistance to disease are greatly improved.

3. The Bio-Mat Relieves Pain


The deep heat of the far infrared helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscles and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster.

4. The Bio-Mat Burns Calories and Controls Weight


As one relaxes in the gentle heat of the far infrared, one's body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, a single far infrared session burns as many calories as rowing or jogging for 30 minutes.

5. The Bio-Mat Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness


Far infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many kinds of arthritic and musculo-skeletal disorders. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculo-skeletal ailments. Stiffness, aches and soreness that come with aging are reduced or eliminated using far infrared.

6. The Bio-Mat Reduces Stress and Fatigue


The gentle warmth of the far infrared rays helps to sooth nerves and relaxes tight or knotted muscles. The end result is reduced stress and improved energy.

7. The Bio-Mat Improves Skin


The Bio-Mat's far infrared and negative ions penetrate the skin deeply, helping detoxify impurities from the skin and lymphatic system. In addition, exfoliation is greatly enhanced by the far infrared, rapidly removing dead skin cells. Increased circulation draws the skin's own natural nutrients to the surface, rejuvenating the skin's health and appearance.

8. Removes Bodily Toxins and Assists in Detoxification


Far infrared helps to detoxify the body in several important ways. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify the body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, cholesterol, and uric acid. In addition to causing the body to sweat, far infrared is capable of removing toxins via several other bodily systems



Bio mat and cancer

Additional Information



"It is well known," Dr. Yoshimizu says, "that cancer cells are heat-senstive." Dr. Yoshimizu says, "a one-degree increase in body temperature results in a 40% increase in immunity and raising the body temperature to 109.4 causes cancer cell death!" When the body's temperature range is from 104 degrees to 109.4 degrees, "bacteria, virus, and cancer are heat liable."


When you get sick with a cold or flu, your body's natural response is to raise your temperature to kill the cold or flu that has invaded it. That temperature raising of the body often makes you feel worse, because you have an overload of toxins that need to be dumped, and that is why you often times throw up or get diarrhea. The body is dispelling the toxins.


When body temperature is decreased by just one degree, the immune system declines by 36%, basic metabolism declines by 12%, and enzyme activity declines by 50%.


Dr. Yoshimizu tells us that chemotherapy is highly dependent on an "intact immune system" and that anti-cancer medications not only attack cancer cells but also attack healthy cells, which results in "severe side effects." Even though a cancer cell's DNA may be damaged by chemotherapy, and become weak for a period of time, it still recovers. Therefore it is necessary to utilize thermotherapy continually to help the cancer cells to an early grave!


Dr. Yoshimizu lets us know that the Western Medicine approach of using surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments "does not cure cancer completely." Surgery only removes the visible cancer and has no ability to remove the cancer at the cellular level. It is unfortunate that radiation and chemotherapy also attack healthy cells because there is no energetic ability in radiation or chemotherapy to distinguish cancer cells from healthy cells.


The body's cells are able to distinguish the thermotherapy from the Bio-Mat. Normal body cells are able to handle 116.6 degrees, whereas cancer cells are severely compromised at 107.6 degrees.


Cancer cells have little blood flow leading to a severe acidic state, which is a prime condition for the thermotherapy to have its way with them. Resistance is futile for the cancer cell when it is constantly bombarded with thermotherapy.


Japan has been a leader when it comes to thermotherapy. Hyperthermia [raising body temperature] treatment effects are well known because of the research done by professors at Sugawara Kyoto University. When the body is supported by a strong immune system, it naturally moves in a curative direction on its own. Dr. Yoshimizu writes that "thermotherapy is required in order to change the body into a curative state."


Morphine is prescribed to 80% of cancer patients for pain. Thermotherapy creates "heat shock protein," which protects cells from thermal stress, when thermal stress is applied. The brain responds by creating endorphins alleviating pain, and with thermotherapy cancer patients are able to proceed without any morphine.


Professor Itoyoko Jun of Aichi Medical University, wrote the book "HSP [heat shock protein] Cures Disease." He explains it like this: when trauma, disease and stress proteins are damaged; necrosis and apoptosis are two methods of cell death. HSP is the counter-measures by fixing defective proteins, inhibits necrosis and apoptosis and strengthens the cell's life force; HSP increases with thermotherapy; cells become stronger when heated.


Dr. Yoshimizu says, "We use this device [Bio-Mat] to weaken cancer cells by heating up the body and reinforcing the immune system." The protocol that he calls "effective use" of the Bio-Mat is to heat "up the tumor mass 40 - 60 minutes once to three times a day at 158 degrees." He also recommends adequate hydration by drinking mineral water or adding salt to your water. He further tells us that by using the 158 degrees for 50 minutes, "the patient's body temperature will go up to 102.2 to 104 degrees." Dr. Yoshimizu further reveals that when the body is from 98.6 to 104 degrees and above, "the immune function is increased 2 to 10 times[!] Therefore it [the Bio-Mat] is optimal in cancer treatment." During sleep he says to set the temperature at 95 to 104 degrees.


Please note that if your temperature is below normal, it is likely that you have a compromised immune system. Dr. Yoshimizu reveals that a "cancer patient's body temperature is usually low even during the daytime, it is important to maintain a high body temperature throughout the day."
