Does Far Infrared
Therapy really work?
Simple answer: YES.
Far Infrared Therapy for horses is a new revolutionary way to harness nature's healing power without the use of toxic drugs or chemicals.
Unlike many veterinary drugs to reduce your horses pain and
swelling, Far-Infrared Therapy can actually remedy the cause of the
swelling and pain and reduce toxicity levels.
FIR therapy is the drug free alternative for pain relief, and
is very affective as an anti inflammatory treatment
You might be thinking that because FIR is natural, there's no way that it will be strong enough to compete with a drug at relieving pain.
Most synthetic drugs are designed to deaden pain receptors and impulses rather than help heal the cause of the pain.
Far Infrared actually heal the cells and tissues.
Learning and studying as much as we can
about far infrared technology helps to reduce some of the mystery
about this revolutionary therapy. Lets start with the Bio
Bio Ceramics are combinations of lead free
minerals that naturally emit far infrared rays.
Different companies have different patents on their secret
mineral formulas and use their special mix to produce unique
bio-ceramic powders. Some companies then take the
powders and impregnate the mix into the fibers, others apply
small FIR "Dots" to the garments (like the
inside of socks) while still others will spray the mixture on
the the fabrics.
In our opinion... the impregnated method
used in PROLOTEX™ products is the best
since the Bio-Ceramics will not fall off or wash out of the
FIR - Part of our Natural Environment
Far Infrared Rays are a part our natural
environment. Not only are infrared rays part of the
Electromagnetic Spectrum, they are also found in specific
natural earth minerals - like Tourmaline and Jade.
Far Infrared can't be seen with the naked eye
Next time your out on a bright sunny day when the air is cool or even cold, stand in the direct sunlight and feel the warm rays beaming down on you. The air isn't being warmed, yet you feel heat. The heat you feel is created when the rays of far infrared light enter your body.
The deep penetrating "FIR" generates increased activity (vibration) within the cells of your body. Producing an increase in heat energy, which in turn activates cells and enhances metabolism. This is what I meant when I said that I'm
"literally" excited about the power of far infrared!
It's common knowledge that prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light of the sun produces detrimental effects to the skin.
This is not the case with far infrared. In fact, the cells of your body will only absorb
FIR if they are of the same intrinsic vibration frequency
(8-14 microns) as themselves.
Excess FIR passes through the cells without any adverse effects.
Benefits of Far
Infrared For Your Horse
By stimulating the metabolic functioning of your horse's soft tissues at the cellular level,
"nasty" toxins are flushed from the muscles. Such things as poisons, carcinogenic heavy metals, toxic substances, lactic acid, free fatty acids, uric acids associated with aging and fatigue.
Lactic acid buildup is a major cause of sore stiff muscles, and
"tying up" in competitive horses. By using PROLOTEX™
leg wraps, you can shorten your horses recovery time and
prevent further injuries.
circulation and reduced injuries
If there's one word that comes close to summing up what Far
Infrared products can do for your horse, that word would be
"circulation". Improved circulation, dramatically improved, and I don't just mean the kind of improved blood flow you might first imagine, or associate with a good athletic workout, there's a lot more to it than that.
The warming effects of far infrared dilate (expand) your horse's arteries, blood vessels and tiny capillaries. Circulation and metabolic activity
are dramatically increased. Swelling in inflamed and stressed areas are reduced, pain is
relieved, the healing process enhanced and recovery time
shortened. Isn't your horse worth it?
therapy used as a preventive medicine
Far Infrared therapy products - like PROLOTEX™ Leg
Wraps - can be used as a preventive medicine. As mentioned above, when you help flush toxins, like lactic and uric acids from the muscles of your
horse, the soft tissues are rejuvenated, flexibility increased and chance of injury is reduced.
Many strains and sprains to our horses ligaments and tendons are a direct result
of lack of circulation in the tissue fibers.
