Biomat – Infrared Therapy

Health Benefits of Using an Amethyst Biomat 7000mx

The benefits of infrared and negative ion therapy are clearly documented and have been around since the inception of these therapies in the 1970’s when NASA discovered them.

Some of benefits of these therapies are:

Detoxify your body
Boost your immune system
Increase blood circulation
Prevent diseases such as cancer and diabetes
Relief for cancer, diabetes, arthritis, back pain, muscle pain, fibromyalgia, ms, lyme disease and much more
Cutting edge athlete health management. The Biomat delivers infrared therapy that speeds up muscle regeneration, decreases sick time and promotes healthy sleep, the three things every athlete needs beyond exercise to be on top.

Increase mental happiness, a healthy sex life and healthy digestion

Richway Amethyst Biomats are FDA approved medical devices. They produce Infrared Ray Therapy just like infrared saunas, yet they are cheaper, more portable and take up less room. Amethyst Biomats are a unique healing pad that can help with many different health conditions and are also one of the best prevention devices available. Amethyst Biomats detoxify the human body, boost the immune system and provides joint and muscle pain relief. Everyone from professional athletes, cancer, diabetes, lyme disease and arthritis patients can benefit from the effects of infrared therapy. The health benefits received from an amethyst biomat are too many to record.

Negative Ion Therapy
Most people have experienced the air quality when out in nature. When you are at the beach or in the mountains, the pollutants from city life are not robbing the air around you of molecules known as anions, or negatively charged ions. This is why we refer to air in these natural settings as “fresh,” and there are very real health benefits to breathing this air. Negative Ion therapy has many benefits, including depression relief, fighting infections, better concentration and much more. The Richway Amethyst Biomat provides Negative Ion therapy along with Infrared therapy. Most know the Amethyst Biomat for its Infrared ray health benefits, but unlike other infrared therapy devices, the Amethyst Biomat provides both.

Infrared Therapy (Thermotherapy)
Infrared therapy has proven to improve muscle regeneration, body detoxification, increased metabolism and immunity, increased blood circulation, increased serontonin, better digestion, nueral activity, smoother skin, better sleep, improved sex life and much more. NASA discovered the health benefits of infrared technology in the 1970’s. The Amethyst Biomat is just a different delivery device, one which is more portable and affordable for people who wish to improve their health.

The health benefits of infrared therapy are numerous. Learn more about infrared therapy and its benefits.

Amethyst Biomats: Thermotherapy as an Alternative Cancer Treatment
Western medicine accepts only three treatments for cancer, all of which are intrusive: radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. All three do damage to the human body and they all focus on tearing down the human body. Yet research has shown that thermotherapy (the warming internally of the human body) by way of infrared therapy can also be effective in treating cancer. Amethyst normally emits infrared rays and combined with the technology in the Amethyst Biomat, provides thermotherapy. Research has shown that warming the human body internally by just one degree in temperature boosts the human immune system by 40%. It has also shown that at 43 degrees Celsius, cancer cells die. A few years ago, a renowned doctor in Japan did many tests on cancer patients with only half the chemotherapy western medicine uses and Amethyst Biomats and had spectacular results. You can read the book he wrote documenting these results by downloading it in .pdf form of “The Fourth Treatment For Medical Refugees” by Nobuhiro Yoshimizu.


The BioMat STORY
The Story of the Biomat with Calvin Kim (the inventor)

In September of 1996 the Kim’s were in the jewelry business and came across an opportunity to purchase a Korean Jade mine. The mine was being offered for six million dollars, which was a reduction from the original price of twenty million.

Originally, the intention was to use the jade in their jewelry business. However, that quickly changed as Calvin witnessed so many people coming to the jade mine for therapeutic benefits. Everyday three to four hundred people were coming to sit inside the jade mine. Calvin was so surprised! That transaction truly changed the life path for Calvin and Jeanna Kim.

Although they invested in the mine strictly because of its value to the company, for jewelry, they soon discovered they had many buyers seeking the jade in powder form. The Kims learned that one medical device company “RichWay Korea” was using the powder in the manufacturing of its medical mats. Curious, and struggling with several of his own health challenges, Calvin tried one of the jade mats and experienced first-hand the powerful health benefits the mat provided.

Realizing the sales potential of such a device, Calvin and Jeanna convinced their jewelry company to invest in the struggling, under-marketed RichWay Korea. Soon after, in 1997, the Kims took full ownership of the medical device company, along with its laboratory, and RichWay International was born. From there they launched a network marketing company to promote jade BioMat sales internationally. In addition, they developed our other products, the Alkal-life water ionizer and Rejuvena facial system.

In the meantime, they spent years continually researching the infrared, negative ions, and crystal technologies the BioMat utilizes. Initially, it was believed that the health benefits of the BioMat came from the heat of the infrared technology. But after three years of research, it was discovered that the main benefit was not from heat, but rather from the “vibration energy” that the infrared ray provides. And so our RichWay research department dove deep into studying the energy spectrum of the healthiest and most natural frequencies for infrared and negative ions.

Some interesting statistics show that married couples live 7-9 years longer than single people and couples have forty percent less medical issues. Because of this RichWay developed infrared rays similar to the “vibration frequency” shared by humans.

The main purpose of BioMat technology is to target the same energy frequency as love that will naturally nurture and enhance our wellbeing. Yes, you heard it right ~ LOVE.

During the February 23rd teleconference, Calvin explains that the real hidden power of the BioMat are these four things:

Human Body Infra Ray
Human Body Infra Ray Frequency
Human Body Infra Ray Hertz
100 Milligauss Electro-magnetic Power – to increase circulation
Calvin continues to share information on the difference between infra ray heat and surface heat. Surface heat is not always comfortable or best for the human body. However, the type of infra ray heat the BioMat provides is specifically designed to safely nurture and support the human body. For instance, when someone submerges in hot water for 30 minutes their body temperature will rise. Then when they get out of the water that body heat will start declining in 10 minutes. Whereas someone that is on the BioMat infrared heat for 30 minutes, the infra ray heat will remain in the body for more than 4 hours. This is the amazing difference between the energy that infra ray versus surface heat provides!

Questions and Answers with Calvin Kim (the inventor)
If you have high blood pressure and are advised not to use hot tubs, can you use the BioMat? In answering this Calvin shares that he had high blood pressure and understands the concern. When someone with high blood pressure gets into a hot tub the heat raises body temperature and may cause the blood pressure and circulation to rise. That said, the infra ray heat the BioMat generates is very different energy. The infra ray penetrates the body like a fine massage and activates the mitochondria. That is the one big difference. The infra ray is very gentle and will assist the stability of blood pressure by activating mitochondria and safely regulating blood circulation. Heat like that in a hot tub will not activate mitochondria and the blood pressure will rise.

Why do we have amethyst and tourmaline in mini-BioMat and Pillow? The Professional BioMat design has a 10-15 inch negative ion panel. The Mini-BioMat can only host a 3-5 inch negative ion panel. Tourmaline generates negative ions and that is why it is in the Mini-BioMat and Pillow, to increase the negative ions.

What is the difference between the Jade and Amethyst BioMat? The human body is around 32 million hertz vibration. Jade is about 20 million hertz vibration, which provides a gentle lower vibration. RichWay™s research team discovered that Amethyst is closer to 32 million hertz, which is stronger than Jade and closer to the vibration of the human body. Some people are very sensitive or fragile and the Jade may work best for them. For example, a person with MS and heat sensitivity may be more comfortable with the gentle vibration of the Jade BioMat. Another with chronic back pain may benefit much more from the stronger vibration of the Amethyst BioMat.

How are the negative ions generated? Simply stated the technology is increase voltage, reduce speed for steady energy, transfer to aluminum panel, then electrical discharge causes oxygen electron to separate and releases to produce negative ion.

Calvin added, that was a good question, however most important question is:

Why we produce negative ions? The number one reason is for emotional support, negative ions make us happy, and secondly, to reduce pain. Pain is an electrical signal to the brain, which is a very strong positive ion. Therefore, when you are on the BioMat the negative ions help with emotions and reduce pain.

Can the first infra ray setting be used to lower body temperature? Yes. The first setting is 95 degrees, lower than our normal body temperature of 98 degrees.

Is there a difference in benefit from sleeping all night on the BioMat and a 40 minute high heat session? Yes, there is! The forty minute high heat sessions are to produce HST (heat shock protein), which helps improve the production of T-cells and the immune system. Sleeping on the BioMat is very important, however you would only use a low setting, like number 2 green (104 degrees). Remember, RichWay has done extensive research and the infra rays, negative ions, and crystals in the BioMat technology are designed to nurture and support us both emotionally and physically. When you sleep on the BioMat it is like being in the womb; very comfortable and nurturing.

What do you recommend when someone says the BioMat is too hard? If you place a comforter underneath the BioMat it will provide more cushion when laying on it.

Does synthetic clothing such as polyester affect the benefits of the BioMat? Yes. Do not wear synthetic clothing on the BioMat, instead wear cotton or natural fibers for the best benefit.

Can you use sheepskin on the BioMat? Yes, you can, however use natural organic material without synthetics. And, it would be a good idea to use the BioMat cover over it to protect from any sweat released.

Who can benefit from the Biomat? Everyone. We all have bodies that create acidic waste every time we eat, think, exercise, stress, etc.  Our lifestyles tend to not create enough deep sleep and relaxation, free of mental activity for our bodies to keep up with the waste.  This waste gets stored and becomes an acidic cesspool for yeast, mold, fungus, virus, cancer, and disease to thrive.  Anyone wishing to restore their body, whether diagnosed with something or just lives in an environment that has toxins in it, may receive benefits from integrating the Biomat into their lives.

What are the greatest benefits of the Biomat? The Biomat deals with primary body function. It provides a high caliber life force energetic that immediately enables the body’s waste removal systems as well enables our ability to relax and sleep deeply. As the Biomat activates our body to remove toxins and acidic waste, both from our day to day lifestyles and our stored waste from our lifetime, our brains slow down to Delta brain waves.  All the profound healing and restorative functions of the body are accessed through these Brain states.  In addition to this, our circulatory system is opened and cleared, this allows us to deliver everything we put into our body 100% better.  Whether it is high quality raw foods and supplements or hydration, with the Biomat these are all more effective to our entire organism.

How long has the Biomat been in use? The Biomat has been in use since 1997, NASA had the technology patented since the 1960’s and it became public domain in 1997.  A similar device that was not easy to use was $500,000 and sold only to cancer institutes.  Now we can have this FDA medical device in our homes for the cost of a few months of health insurance.  There is a lot of research from Japan and Korea, and is used on the hospital beds. It is still relatively fresh here in the United States, but doctors, hospitals, and alternative care practitioners are all using it with amazing results.

Who can benefit from the Biomat? Everyone. We all have bodies that create acidic waste every time we eat, think, exercise, stress, etc.  Our lifestyles tend to not create enough deep sleep and relaxation, free of mental activity for our bodies to keep up with the waste.  This waste gets stored and becomes an acidic cesspool for yeast, mold, fungus, virus, cancer, and disease to thrive.  Anyone wishing to restore their body, whether diagnosed with something or just lives in an environment that has toxins in it, may receive benefits from integrating the Biomat into their lives.

My daughter has late-stage lyme disease. I was wondering if the Biomat can be put inside a mild hyperbaric chamber. We purchased a mild hyperbaric chamber for her several years ago which she uses 3x per week with just a vicso-elastic pad inside. Would she be able to put the Biomat right on top of that while being treated with the mild hbo? There should be no reason why not.  Generally, unless water is involved, the mat can lay anywhere.  Just have the control box outside the chamber if possible, and be sure that no more moisture than an intense sauna would have is going to be present in the chamber.

Can you tell me if this product is safe to lay on for any period of time?  I am concerned about the electromagnetics as being harmful.  Do you have any documentation? Have you used a Trifield meter on the Biomat at all? Yes, I have seen it tested with three different tri-meters.  A tri-meter usually has an electric setting and a magnetic setting.  If it is set to electric, there should be no or very little reading. I have done this myself. The outlets on the wall, lamps, etc all have very distinct readings, and the Biomat had no reading.

If set to magnetic, which has little established harmful effects in low range, and does not stand for electromagnetic, you will get a reading.  A specialist in EMF’s Dr. Korn has stated that “0-4.5 in magnetic miligaus is absolutely safe, 4.5-7 is established as safe, yet does have a slight effect on the anatomy, neither harmful nor necessarily beneficial, 7-up should be limited when coming from electrical devices,” he tested the Biomat’s magnetic reading at 5.5mg and had no electrical reading more than an instant of insignificant signal at the turning on of the mat.  Everything that has mass has a magnetic field.  Amethyst crystals have a pretty strong magnetic field.  The harmful electromagnetic fields that we should all try to limit and avoid in our lives are 60 cycle, AC (alternating current) electromagnetic fields.  These fields have been proven harmful, and after Nikolai Tesla discovered them and released them, he soon after begged for them to be revoked due to their detrimental effects on the human body, yet it is what we find in our homes and most every electrical device.

The Biomat is transformed (converted) to a DC (direct Current) in its control box, making it much more suitable and harmonizing for interaction with the human body.  It has a very different quality to its energy, and although it will still get a reading on a trimeter, it is not the same as a reading from an AC device, which is harmful and blocks the human body’s own electrical sensitivity and conduction, interferes with cellular function and communication, etc.

There are also settings to test what range, such as 0-5mg (miligaus), 0-10, 0-100, etc.  If it is set to 0-5 and the reading is 4 or 5, which is very small, their reading will seem off the charts.  If the meter is set to 0-100 and the reading is 4-5 it will seem miniscule. Test results have been certified.

Thousands of people are using the Biomat everyday and getting incredible results.  Billions of people are using electrical devices with 120V, 60 cycle AC current and hardly notice the harmful effects on their health and lives every day.  It is a sometimes sad reality to understand the numbness that people are operating in, yet what you are doing by bringing people into awareness of their bodies, the effects of their environments, and introducing to them choices that can enhance the quality of their lives and the nature of the awareness that they enter each moment in is beyond valuable.

Does the controller give off any electricity? No. It is manufactured by Texas Instruments. It has been tested by the FDA to make sure it gives off absolutely no electricity, the FDA will not approve it if it does.

My table will be multi purpose…. can I leave a mat of circular magnets on the table at the same time…under Biomat? Yes, they can be used in conjunction with the Biomat, under the mat on the table will be greatly beneficial.

Is this helpful if you have adrenal suppression or Lupus? The function of the Bio mat is generally to support Infrared Ray heat. The purpose is to “Make Enzyme Activate”. If you can make enzyme activate, than there are many amazing things that will be happen. The body will recover by itself very stongly. Please always remember, if we can make enzyme activate, than incredible things will be happen. There is a testimonial in, her name is Didi. She has Lupus, and her Kidney is not functioning; however she has survived. Adrenal suppression would be potentially positively impacted by relaxing the adrenals, increasing blood flow to them and restoring their function.

Are there any contraindications? It is always recommended to consult with your physician before the use of the Biomat. Remember to stay hydrated while using the Biomat.

Here is a list of Contraindications:
Organ Transplants – Recipients of any type of organ transplant (Kidney, Heart, Liver, etc.) should not use the Biomat. After an organ transplant, patients will need to take immunosuppressant (anti-rejection) drugs to help prevent their immune system from attacking, or rejecting, the new organ. The use of the Biomat’s far infrared rays increases immune system function, which will tell your body to attack the new organ.

External Pacemaker – We recommend anyone who uses an external pacemaker that they should not use the Biomat.

Use with Caution:
Medications – We recommend anyone who is currently taking medications to consult their physician before the use of the Biomat. The use of the Biomat’s far infrared rays may interfere with certain medications.

Fever – We recommend anyone experiencing a high fever to use the Biomat with no heat and negative ions only.

Joint Injuries – We recommend anyone with recent (acute) joint injuries to use the Biomat with no heat and negative ions only. Injuries should not be heated within the first 48 hours, as joints that are chronically hot or swollen may respond poorly to heat.

Insensitivity To Heat – We recommend anyone with diseases associated with a reduced ability to sweat or insensitivity to heat to use the Biomat with no heat and negative ions only.

Internal Pacemaker / Defibrillator – We recommend anyone who uses an internal pace maker and/or defibrillator to consult their physician before the use of the Biomat. In general, infrared heating pads have not been shown to interfere or damage pacemakers/defibrillators. However, there may be a small chance of causing interference occasionally. We recommend anyone who uses a pacemaker and/or defibrillator to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which can cause an increase in heart beat. Some people who use a pacemaker, experience discomfort since their heart beat is being controlled. If you are experiencing continued discomfort, discontinue use immediately and seek medical attention. For persons with a defibrillator, do not lay the Biomat directly over your device.

Certain Ailments – We recommend anyone with the following ailments to use the Biomat on low heat (95F – 113F) or negative ions only. It is inadvisable to raise the core temperature to high levels of persons with the following conditions: Adrenal Suppression Disorders, Addison’s Disease, Adrenal Insufficiency, Systematic Lupus Erythematosus, and Heat Sensitive MS. Anyone with other types of MS can use the Biomat at any setting.

Brain Tumor – We recommend anyone with a brain tumor to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F).

Bypass Surgery – We recommend anyone who has undergone bypass surgery to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which can cause normal blood vessels to expand. Some people who have gone through bypass surgery, experience discomfort since their blood vessels can’t expand.

Diabetics – We recommend anyone with Diabetes to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). Diabetics’ skin is weak, which can cause low heat burn from the use of the Biomat. Once the skin is damaged, it may be difficult to recover.

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) – We recommend people with chronically high blood pressure (hypertension) to use the Biomat with caution before and after use, and on low heat only (95F-113F). Sudden changes in body temperature and/or weather temperature may cause an increase in blood pressure.

Newborn Babies – We recommend parents with newborns to wait until their baby is at least 6 months old before using the Biomat on low heat only (95F-104F) or negative ions only, with adult supervision. Please use with caution.

Infants – We recommend that infants using the Biomat should use it on low heat only (95F-113F), with adult supervision. If temperature is too high for the child, the temperature can’t be controlled without an adult. Please use with caution

Pregnancy / Expectant Women – We recommend women in their pregnancy or those who are expecting to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). Excessive temperatures have a potential for fetal damage during early months of pregnancy so it is important to consult your physician before use of the Biomat.

Radiation Therapy/Chemotherapy – We recommend anyone that has currently received radiation treatments or chemotherapy to use the Biomat on low to medium heat (95F-131F).

Surgical Implants – Recipients of Titanium, Metal, Ceramic, or Plastic implants can use the Biomat. Surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays and are not heated by an infrared heat system. Anyone who experiences pain in those areas should check with their physician.

Silicon – Silicon implants may be warmed by infrared rays. Silicon is known to melt at over 200 degrees Celsius / 392 Fahrenheit, so it should not be adversely affected by infrared rays. It is advised that you consult your surgeon before use.

Pain: Pain should not be experienced when using the Biomat. However, the infrared heat will go to areas of disease or discomfort so some people may perceive this as pain and others as a sensation. If pain is persistent, discontinue use.

Worsened Condition: If there are any worsened conditions when using the Biomat, discontinue use. Some temporary symptoms may occur, which can be attributed to the detoxification and healing process. For more information, please see the stages of improvement in Richway & Fuji Bio Inc.’s Ions and Infrared Rays booklet.

Also the doctor-prescribed medication pain patch “Fentanyl” has a caution in the instructions to not use heat source (heating pad, heat lamp) when using the patch.


Dr. Says this,

The Klinik St. George Hospital – – in Bad Aibling, Germany, has treated 2500 German and 2500 foreign patients each year. Their cancer treatment regime is a week of detoxification and strengthening the immune system with diet and nutritional supplements, followed by 2 weeks of localized Infrared hyperthermia treatment and low dose chemotherapy. This regime has produced great success in treating cancers.

[Discoveries about cancer at Klinik St. George Hospital included:] The cancerous cell has a weakness, [which is] heat. It will die if the temperature goes above 42C/107.6 F.

a) Far Infrared treatment raises body temperature to 42 degrees C [107.6 degrees F].
b) Far Infrared heat penetrates through the body and kills existing cancerous cells.
c) Far Infrared heat enables capillaries to expand, thus enabling good circulation and combating the potential existence of cancer cells.
d)Far Infrared thermal therapy can alleviate pain and prolong life when conventional cancer treatment fails.

e) “The potential is quite endless,” said Harry T. Whelan, MD, Medical College Bleser Professor of Neurology, Pediatrics and Hyperbaric Medicine. “I like to say that the history of medicine, since the beginning of time, has been poisons and knives. Drugs usually poison some enzyme system for the benefit of the patient. Think about the drugs you take: Digitalis is digitoxin; it’s from the foxglove plant and it poisons your heart gently to help you with cardiac disease. Motrin and aspirin basically poison the prostaglandin system to decrease pain by poisoning the inflammatory cascade. Blood thinners basically poison the clotting system, and on and on and on.”
[Dr. Whelan further states,] “So all these drugs that we take are poisons carefully dosed to help the patient. And then, of course, knives. That’s surgery, in which you have to cut the patient in order to cure. [Note his sarcasim] In this particular strategy, [using LED’s and infra-red] what we’re trying to do is use the energy of certain specific wavelengths of light, which are carefully studied in our research lab, to determine those that will enhance the cells’ normal biochemistry instead of poisoning something that is supposed to occur or cutting at it. I consider that a paradigm shift in the entire approach to medicine that has the potential, therefore, to alter all kinds of disease processes, particularly any in which there’s an energy crisis for the tissue.”[Pain or disease is an energy flow blockage.]

NASA then funded Medical College research and clinical trials using LEDs to treat cancer patients following bone marrow transplants. Mucositis, a very painful side effect of cancer treatment, produces throat and mouth ulcerations and gastrointestinal problems so severe that health suffers as chewing and swallowing food and drink become difficult or even impossible. In the first trial at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, LED treatment proved so successful in treating mucositis in the young patients that another round of trials has been funded.

“We have now at Children’s Hospital essentially prevented mucositis since we’ve been treating these patients once a day for eighty seconds with our handheld light emitting diode arrays,” said Dr. Whelan. “Now we have the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in collaboration with us performing a multi-center trial throughout the United States and several foreign countries. If we can replicate the results in other centers and reproduce that same data, which we have published, that will become the standard of care. I contacted the FDA when we had achieved these results, because it was pretty dramatic and we were actually surprised by how well it worked. We’re already well into the multi-center trial and we anticipate being done in five years.

“In the Defense Department work, the idea is rapid battlefield care, self-care being the optimum. If you’re in a modern special operations scenario, you’re in a small rapidly mobile unit expected to be self-sufficient that may not be evacuated for over 96 hours if there are casualties. You will not be able to get to M.A.S.H. units or hospitals. If you’re lucky enough to have a medic or a corpsman, he may be the first casualty. So what do you do? If you need to fight back because the alternative is to be killed, it’s important to be able to treat problems yourself.

“So, we have developed hand-held prototypes that are currently deployed in the Middle East and being tested on patients with various casualties, most notably laser eye injuries. Laser eye injuries are a new emerging battlefield threat. There are many unclassified stories about our troops in Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan and North Korea that have been shot with lasers with the intent to blind, as well as the occasional inadvertent military laser injury with a range finder.”

Dr. Whelan led a study on using LEDs to reverse blindness in rats that was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (Vol. 100, March 18, 2003) and was inducted into the NASA Space Technology Hall of Fame in 2001 for his LED research, indicators that the progression in this area from science fiction to “real science” is complete. The Bleser Foundation endows his professorship, and the Chad Baumann Charitable Trust has also provided funding for the LED cancer treatment research.

Overcoming the Impact of Weightlessness

“In our NASA projects what we’re trying to do is find ways to use the energy of near-infrared light to stimulate the little engine in every cell, which is the mitochondria, so that the drive train, which absorbs these very wavelengths of light energy, can be powered to do what it’s best at doing, which is providing energy for the cell to do everything it does,” said Dr. Whelan. “Now, light absorbed by, say, your sweater or my black pants, does not automatically convert into biological benefits. But if it’s absorbed in the form of light energy by chemicals whose job is always to make use of energy to power the cell, then it’s going to maybe be put to good use. That’s what we will do.

“Astronauts get four problems. They get immune deficiency, pituitary insufficiency that leads to hormone imbalances in space, wound healing delays, and muscle and bone atrophy. If we can use energy to counteract the long-term effects of weightlessness, which causes a distortion of the mitochondrial structure or scaffolding architecture, then maybe we can countermeasure these four problems astronauts get by long-term weightlessness. That’s the NASA thing. It’s a long-term preventative daily treatment with this near-infrared light to help ‘goose’ their cells into better health to overcome the problems of chronic weightlessness on the cell.”

“If you think about it, a lot of injuries result in an energy problem because the tissue is damaged, injured, and therefore has difficulties going through its normal processes of energy metabolism,” said Dr. Whelan. “Usually there’s a lot of swelling, which strangles the blood vessels. You’re getting inadequate oxygen and nutrients, so there’s an energy crisis. If there’s a critical time, and as a neurologist I’m particularly conscious in the case of stroke, spinal cord injury and in the case of retinal laser injury as in the DARPA project, it’s those golden hours during which tissue that hasn’t been completely destroyed is fighting for survival.

“(LED) might make the difference between a small stroke or a large stroke, or between Christopher Reeve being paralyzed for life or walking again, or between someone having a tiny little blind spot from where the laser first hit to being completely blind because of the spreading injury around the entirety of the retina. Those are the differences we’d like to make in neurology, and those things can have spin-offs beyond military combat casualty care to things like diabetic retinopathy, diabetic ulcers, other tissues that can be affected, metabolic diseases where the mitochondria is the area of tissue affected by the problem, serious burns, and then a whole host of neurologic injuries. These are all potential future areas.”

Disturbance “Qi” (life-force) will disturb the normal body function illness. Therefore “Qi” released from the palm of “Qi gong” master is “Qi” introduced from an external source to restore the body’s function. Therefore by wearing F.I.R products will help to produce warmth and increase the resonance absorption which is similar to “Qi gong” therapy to restore health. According to Dr. Masao Nakamura from Japan, F.I.R treatment is the best solution because it achieves the objective “treatment that caused the least pain to the patient”.

Our body temperature is normally at 36C to 37C. [96.8 to 98.6F] When we do exercise our body will sweat and increase warmness. In this process, the body waste is being eliminated, and proper food nutrient and test to supplement our body will become vital. It is also a fact that materials like clothing can keep our body warm and sweat, but it [our body] does not emit FIR for absorption – only materials that contain FIR materials have the therapeutic properties if worn and used on a long term [basis] in our body will achieve optimum health benefits.

Why do we say that 6-15 micron is the Bio-Genetic Rays? The basis is on usages, research on living things coupled with FIR. Temperature of every living thing including animals and plants is normally within the range 0̊C to 100̊C . The ability to absorb the electromagnetic waves is also within this range. When the wavelength is between 8-12 micron, that is the external emission rate of the human body, it is within the frequency rang of 9 – 12 micron. Extensive biological research has shown that FIR wavelengths between 6 – 15 micron are beneficial to human body and consequently known as the physiological rays or Bio-Genetic Rays.

Far Infrared (FIR) Healing, Medical Facts and Research Data From Japan And Other Sources.

Over the last 25 years, Japanese and Chinese researchers and clinicians have completed extensive research on Far Infrared medical treatments and report many amazing discoveries.

Far Infrared Detoxification
Toxic accumulation is a root cause behind most physical challenges, including the aging process and diseases such as cancer.
Far Infrared is thought to be 7 times more effective at detoxifying heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, and even cholesterol’s, nicotine, alcohol, ammonia, sulfuric acid and other environmental toxins, as opposed to conventional heat or steam saunas.
The human body is a reservoir of all kinds of bio-toxins which cannot be expelled immediately and become stored in the body, thereby triggering illness. When toxic gases such as sulfur dioxide and carbon dioxide, or potentially fatal heavy metal toxins such as mercury, lead and chlorine, meet large water molecules, they are encapsulated by clusters of water and trapped in the body. Where these toxins are accumulated, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. However, when a 7 to 11 micron FIR wave is applied to these large water molecules, the water begins to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms which are holding together the molecules of water. As the water evaporates, the encapsulated gas and toxins can be released.
Toxic Cleansing With Far Infrared (FIR) Waves:

“One of the reasons FIR has beneficial results in a variety of illnesses is the ability of FIR waves to remove toxins, which are often at the core of many health problems. Toxins that cannot be removed immediately after they enter the body are encapsulated by clusters of water. Blood circulation becomes blocked and the cellular energy impaired where these toxins accumulate. However, when a 10-micron FIR wave is applied to water molecules containing toxins, the water begins to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms that are holding together the molecules of water. As the breakdown of the water molecules occurs, encapsulated gases and other toxic materials are released. One study done by American researchers showed that the sweat released by users of a FIR sauna was different that the sweat of people using a conventional sauna or doing normal exercise. The non water portion of sweat released in a FIR sauna was cholesterol, fat soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid.” – Dr. Kyuo, Japan.

Toxic overload has been implicated in many health conditions, from fibrocystic breast disease (FBD) in women to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children. Symptoms of toxic overload include fatigue, headaches, joint or muscle pain, frequent colds and flu, signs of allergy and hormonal imbalance, chemical sensitivity, sinus congestion, psoriasis and other skin conditions, loss of dexterity, insomnia and more. Psychological symptoms include poor concentration, memory loss, mood changes, mental confusion and changes in behavior. –

A great overview on FIR history and its therapeutic value is available in an article: “Warming Up to FIR” published in the Jan. 2001 issue of Alternative Medicine Magazine by Dr. D.J. Fletcher. Here is an extract:

‘Detoxification from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome: Randy Gomm in Vancouver, became a distributor of FIR saunas after his life was turned around by detoxification. As a firefighter, his health had begun to deteriorate until he was no longer able to work. He was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and eventually it was realized that the root of his problem was toxic overload from occupational exposure. During the eight years he was ill, he says, he had a lot of time to research alternative modalities to regain his health. “I discovered that leading researchers in fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome stated that their patients had high toxic loads,” says Randy. “When their loads were reduced, their symptoms often improved dramatically. It worked for me. Detoxing really helped put me back on my feet.”‘

Infrared Radiant Energy – Article by Dr. Aaron M. Flickstein

What is Infrared Heat? Radiant heat is simply a form of [light] energy that heats objects directly through a process called conversion without having to heat the air between. Radiant heat is also called infrared energy or IR. The electromagnetic spectrum is divided into three segments by wavelength, measured in microns or micrometers (a micron = 1/1,000,000 of a meter): 0.076 to 1.5 microns = near or close; 1.5 to 5.6 = middle or intermediate; 5.6 to 1000 = far or long wave infrared. The far infrared segment of the electromagnetic spectrum occurs just below, or “infra” to, red light as the next lowest energy band. This band of light is not visible to human eyes but can be seen by special cameras that translate infrared into visible colors. We can, however, feel this type of light, which we perceive as heat. The sun produces most of its energy in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Our atmosphere has a “window” in it that allows infrared rays — in the 7 to 14 micron ranges — to safely reach the earth’s surface. When warmed, the earth radiates infrared rays in the 7 to 14 micron bands with its peak output at 10 microns.

The infrared heat produced by infrared saunas is similar to the heat from the sun. Our tissues normally produce infrared energy and burn it as fuel to keep us warm and use it for tissue repair. Tissue production of infrared energy is associated with a variety of healing responses. At times, the infrared energy in our tissues may require a boost to a higher level to insure the fullest healing possible for tissue repair. Dr. Tsu-Tsair Oliver Chi, when summing up how infrared devices are attuned to the human body, reported that body tissues that need an infrared boost selectively absorb infrared rays. After boosting a tissue’s infrared energy, the remaining rays pass onward harmlessly.

The Swedish National Institute of Radiation Protection has concluded, as well, that infrared heaters are not dangerous. Instead, Japanese researchers have reported that infrared radiant heat [is the] antidote [to] the negative effects of toxic electromagnetic sources. German researchers reported beneficial effects from hour-long whole-body infrared exposure in two groups of hypertensive patients studied in 1989, including a 24-hour long increase in peripheral blood flow and decrease in high blood pressure.) [*Imagine what the improvements could be with the ability to sit during the day and or sleeping during the night on The Original Bio-Mat*]. [*So much easier to sit or sleep on The Original Bio-Mat, as long as you want using the first 6 settings. You can experience the effects of an infra-red sauna with The Original Bio-Mat by using the 2 top red settings, covering up with blankets for 1 hour.*]

The August 7, 1981 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported what is common knowledge today: Many people who run do so to place a demand on their cardiovascular system as well as to build muscle. What isn’t well known is that it also reported the “regular use of a sauna may impart a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its [infrared heat] regular use may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.” It has been found that the infrared sauna makes it possible for people in wheelchairs, those who are otherwise unable to exert themselves, and those who won’t follow an exercising/conditioning program to achieve a cardiovascular training effect. It also allows for more variety in any ongoing training program.

Blood flow during whole-body hyperthermia is reported to rise from a normal five to seven quarts a minute to as many as 13 quarts a minute. Guyton’s Textbook of Medical Physiology reports that producing one gram of sweat requires 0.586 kcal. The JAMA citation above goes on to state that “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal – the equivalent of running two to three miles. A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600 to 800 kcal with no adverse effect. While the weight of water loss can be regained by re-hydration, the calories consumed will not be.”

Assuming one takes a sauna for 30 minutes, some interesting comparisons can be drawn. Two of the highest calorie output exercises are rowing and running marathons. Peak output on a rowing machine or during a marathon burns about 600 calories in 30 minutes. An infrared sauna may better this from “just slightly” up to 250 percent by burning 900 to 2400 calories in the same period of time. It might in a single session simulate the consumption of energy equal to that expended in a six-to nine-mile run.

The McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology reports “medical practitioners make use of infrared radiant heat to treat sprains, strains, bursitis, peripheral vascular diseases, arthritis, and muscle pain…”

Dr. Masao Nakamura of the O & P Medical Clinic in Japan has reported success with the use of infrared heat treatment for:

Shoulder Stiffness
Gastroenteric Problems
Ear Diseases
A clinical trial in Japan reported a successful solution for seven out of seven cases of rheumatoid arthritis treated with whole-body infrared therapy.

Other Therapeutic Effects of Infrared Heat

The following information has been summarized from Chapter 9 of Therapeutic Heat and Cold, Fourth Edition, Editors Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin, or concluded from data gathered there.

Generally it is accepted that [infrared] heat produces the following desirable therapeutic effects:

Infrared heat increases the extensibility of collagen tissues. Tissues heated to 45 degrees Celsius [113F] and then stretched exhibit a non-elastic residual elongation of about 0.5 to 0.9 percent that persists after the stretch is removed. This does not occur in these same tissues when stretched at normal tissue temperatures. Therefore 20 stretching sessions can produce a 10 to 18 percentage increase in length of tissues heated and stretched. Stretching of tissue in the presence of heat would be especially valuable in working with ligaments, joint capsules, tendons, fascia, and synoviurn that have become scarred, thickened, or contracted. Such stretching at 45 degrees Celsius caused much less weakening in stretched tissues for a given elongation than a similar elongation produced at normal tissue temperatures. Experiments cited clearly showed low-force stretching could produce significant residual elongation when heat is applied together with stretching or range-of-motion exercises. This is safer than stretching tissues at normal tissue temperatures.
Infrared heat decreases joint stiffness. There was a 20 percent decrease in rheumatoid finger joint stiffness at 45 degrees Celsius (112 degrees Fahrenheit) as compared with 33 degrees Celsius (92 degrees Fahrenheit), which correlated perfectly to both subjective and objective observation of stiffness. Speculation has it that any stiffened joint and thickened connective tissues may respond in a similar fashion.
Infrared heat relieves muscle spasms. Muscle spasms have long been observed to be reduced through the use of heat, be they secondary to underlying skeletal, joint, or neuro-pathological conditions. This result is possibly produced by the combined effect of heat on both primary and secondary afferent nerves from spindle cells and from its effects on Golgi tendon organs. The results produced demonstrated their peak effect within the therapeutic temperature range obtainable with radiant heat.
Infrared heat treatment leads to pain relief. Pain may be relieved via the reduction of attendant or secondary spasms. Pain is also at times related to ischemia (lack of blood supply) due to tension or spasm that can be improved by the hyperemia that heat-induced vasodilation produces, thus breaking the feedback loop in which the ischemia leads to further spasm and then more pain. Heat has been shown to reduce pain sensation by direct action on both free-nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves. In one dental study, repeated heat applications led finally to abolishment of the whole nerve response responsible for pain arising from dental pulp. [Infrared] Heat may lead to both increased endorphin production and a shutting down of the so called “spinal gate” of Melzack and Wall, each of which can reduce pain. Localized infrared therapy using lamps tuned to the 2 to 25 micron waveband is used for the treatment and relief of pain by over 40 reputable Chinese medical institutes.
Infrared heat increases blood flow. Heating one area of the body produces reflex-modulated vasodilators in distant-body areas, even in the absence of a change in core body temperature. Heat one extremity and the contra-lateral extremity also dilates; heat a forearm and both lower extremities dilate; heat the front of the trunk and the hand dilates. Heating [with infrared heat] muscles produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Temperature elevation also produces an increased blood flow and dilation directly in capillaries, arterioles, and veinules, probably through direct action on their smooth muscles. The release of bradykinin, released as a consequence of sweat-gland activity, also produces increased blood flow and vasodilation. Whole-body hyperthermia, with a consequent core temperature elevation, further induces vasodilation via a hypothalamic-induced decrease in sympathetic tone on the arteriovenous anastomoses. Vasodilation is also produced by axonal reflexes that change vasomotor balance.
Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema, and exudates. Increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate edema, which can help inflammation, decrease pain, and help speed healing.
Infrared heat introduced in cancer therapy. More recently, infrared heat has been used in cancer therapy. This is a new experimental procedure that shows great promise in some cases when used properly. American researchers favor careful monitoring of the tumor temperature; whereas, the successes reported in Japan make no mention of such precaution.
Infrared heat affects soft tissue injury. Infrared healing is now becoming a leading edge care for soft tissue injuries to promote both relief in chronic or intractable “permanent” cases, and accelerated healing in newer injuries.
As reported in Infrared Therapy by Dr. Yamajaki, Japanese researchers have produced the following provocative results with whole-body infrared heat:

Burns (relieves pain and decreases healing time with less scarring)
High blood pressure (safe in 40 to 50 degrees Celsius, 104 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit, regular use helps lower pressure)
Low blood pressure (sauna trains the body to raise the pressure)
Brain damage (accelerated repair in brain contusions)
Short-term memory loss (improved)
Cancer of the tongue (improved)
Toxic electromagnetic fields (effects neutralized)
Cerebral hemorrhage (speeds and significantly enhances recovery)
Arthritis, acute and chronic (greatly relieved)
Gouty arthritis (relieved)
Rheumatoid Arthritis (relieved)
Menopausal symptoms (relieved chills, nervousness, depression, dizziness, head- and stomach-aches)
Weight loss (produced through sweating, the energy expended to produce sweating, and through direct excretion of fat)
Auto accident-related soft tissue injury (daily sessions used until best healing attained, then used to deal with permanent residuals; pain control for chronic residuals lasted three days before another treatment was necessary)

The following are excerpts are taken from Infrared Sauna Therapy by Lawrence, Wilson, MD. While Dr. Wilson’s focus is on Infrared Sauna Therapy, the concepts also apply to Infrared Heat in general.

Infrared therapy is one of the least costly, safest and most powerful ways to eliminate toxic metals, toxic chemicals and chronic infections. The benefits include:

Skin rejuvenation. Sauna use slowly restores elimination through the skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and a major eliminative channel. In most people, it is inactive, congested and toxic. Sun exposure, use of synthetic clothing, bathing in chlorinated water and exposure to hundreds of chemicals damage the skin. Excessive sympathetic nervous system activity and emotions such as fear, anger and guilt cause blood to be withdrawn from the skin, contributing to inactivity of the skin.
Enhanced sweating. Sweating in a sauna is a by-product of applying heat to the body. The sweating process gently and safely helps eliminate all heavy metals and toxic chemicals. Medical studies demonstrate that most toxins can be eliminated through the skin, relieving the burden on the kidneys and liver. Sweating increases dramatically in most people after several months of daily sauna use. Sweating during exercise is not nearly as effective for detoxification because exercise activates the sympathetic nervous system. Sympathetic nervous activity inhibits toxin elimination.
Exercise benefits. Saunas provide many of the benefits of exercise with much less expenditure of energy. These include enhanced circulation and oxidation of the tissues. Repeated sauna use can lower elevated blood pressure and improve the elasticity of the arteries. Saunas are most helpful for cardiovascular rehabilitation, arthritis, allergies, skin conditions and chemical sensitivity.
Decongesting the internal organs. Heating the body powerfully shunts blood toward the skin to dissipate heat. This decongests the internal organs and greatly stimulates circulation. Sinuses, joints and many other tissues benefit greatly.
Fever therapy (hyperthermia) for infections. Raising body temperature powerfully assists the body to kill bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. Many people have a low body temperature and, for this reason, cannot get rid of chronic infections. Common sites of infections are the sinuses, ears, eyes, bladder, throat and intestines.
Tumors, radiation poisoning and mutated cells. Hyperthermia also helps kill other types of abnormal cells. Tumors, for example, tolerate heat poorly. Raising body temperature hastens their death. Though not a conventional method, hyperthermia is a well-researched therapy for cancer. Heat also disables or kills cells mutated by radiation or damaged by other toxins.
Healing reactions are temporary symptoms that occur as toxic substances are eliminated and chronic infections heal. Symptoms vary from mild odors, tastes or rashes are very common and usually pass quickly. Some people feel great fatigue after sessions and this is normal. Some people have bowel changes, aches, pains or headaches.
Old infections may flare up as they are healed due to repeated sauna use. Usually only rest and natural remedies are needed to help infections resolve faster.
Almost all healing symptoms are benign and will pass quickly. Consult a knowledgeable practitioner if any cause concern.

Healing Cancer With Light

Biophotonics: Basic Theory of Cancer Development and Defense

by International Institute of Biophysics 2002 (formerly published at, edited for enhanced readability by Healing Cancer Naturally

At the 11th International Conference “Biological Cancer Defense” in Heidelberg, Germany (May 3-5, 2002), Prof. F. A. Popp presented his basic theory of cancer development and defense. This theory was recently successfully discussed at the Heidelberg Cancer Research Institute (DKFZ) as well. In view of the positive response on the part of the scientists and the highly controversial nature of these ideas at rather clear evidence, we consider it worthwhile to publish a concise review of the substance of Popp’s theory:

Popp started by pointing out that over the last years, cancer death rates have not dropped but rather significantly increased, indicating that mainstream science has been pursuing a fundamentally erroneous direction in its attempts at combatting this scourge of humanity. Popp compared this flawed approach with attempts at scientifically answering the question: ”How high is the temperature of a gas?” by proceeding to catch the gaseous molecules and to investigate them under the microscope. While the technique may thus improve step by step to the use of electron microscopy and even higher resolution microscopy, it will forever fail to produce any essential result concerning the gas’ temperature, and not even yield a result clueing the investigator in to the fundamentally erroneous direction of his experiments. Similarly, tumor growth is doubtless nothing but a collective phenomenon of the cell population as a whole. Consequently, the central questions should focus on the control of cell division rate rather than on the molecular properties of individual cells. A basic example which simultaneously provides the starting point of Popp’s theory is cell division, i.e. the mitotic figures . As is well known, the molecular content is divided here into two equal parts, where the daughter cells will always contain just half of the entire number of biomolecules without deviations, while the statistical laws require a surplus or undershoot of , where N is the number of molecules. This would always be about 105 molecules more or less in one of the daughter cells.

The fact that practically no aberration takes place can be explained only in terms of a regulating electromagnetic field that stabilizes itself by the interaction with the cell(s). The electric and magnetic biforces take care of the correct movement (and reactions) of all the molecules. Actually, such a field is known and can be calculated. It is the electromagnetic field within conducting and/or dielectric cavities which spreads out over the interior of a cell according to the Maxwell equations.

The field pattern (local field strengths) follows the classical laws of the Maxwell equations, whereas the dynamics is subjected to quantum optics. shows such a spatial field pattern which has been calculated by taking account of the boundary conditions of a cell. (2). Those electromagnetic quasi-stationary electromagnetic field patterns spread over the wavelength range from at least c. 200 to 800 nm. shows the series of cavity resonator modes in the optical frequency range. Their superposition’s completely explain the mitotic figures both for stationary patterns and in the course of time for the temporal sequence of superposition’s. The electrical charges and magnetic momentums of the molecules strictly follow the electric and magnetic field pattern of the corresponding cavity resonator waves, respectively. As a consequence, the perfect spatio-temporal distribution of molecules can be understood, and it is not wrong to say that it can be understood only in this way.

At the same time one has to expect that an ideal photomultiplier should then register photons outside of the cell population just within this wavelength range of, say, 200 to 800 nm (3). In addition, since these field patterns represent coherent states, the probability of measuring n photons has to follow a Poissonian photocount statistics p(n) = exp (-) n/n!. Both is true (3,4). The evidence of these “biophotons” (which are emitted as single photons by living biological cells and systems satisfy just these conditions) has been shown by Popp’s group since 1976, and it has been reproduced by several other scientists working in the field of biophotonics. We will not repeat the confirmation of all these results, but would like to refer the interested reader to our bibliography ( htm or

Popp confined his Heidelberg address to the aspects concerning cancer development. Since a coherent field is self-reflective, it follows laws like

>¶< /¶ t (n) = a n + b n2 (equ. 1), fixme-u-g refer original

where n are subunits of the system (i.e. photons or cells), ¶ /¶ t (n) describes the time development of n, and a and b are parameters. b must not vanish in order to keep the coherence of the system.

A typical example is the correlation between biophoton emission and cell growth (Fig. 3), where b0 is necessary for cell growth stimulation. While a may refer to chaotic components, b is a collective parameter, dependant on integrative properties of the whole cellular system. b as the inhibitor of cell growth is strongly linked to the degree of coherence of the field. Consequently, a definite loss of coherence is a necessary and sufficient condition of cancer development (5,6). The cancer problem is reduced to the investigation of b and b/a.

Actually, Schamhart et. al. and Scholz et. al. have shown that the loss of the validity of equ. 1 and the loss of coherence, which can be expressed in terms of b and a, is strongly correlated to cancer growth (Fig. 4 and Fig. 5, (7,8)). This correlation has the power of a causal relation, since it does lead not only to quantitative, but also to qualitative differences between “normal” cells and “tumor cells” without any exception.

Once we arrived at this stage, we already had a powerful strategy and tool for overcoming the malignancy of cancer development. Where tumor tissue is available (surface tumors or tissue after operation), one may expose the tumor tissue to non-toxic agents and examine whether the biophoton emission will increase or decrease under this treatment. In case of increase (which happens in most cases), the remedy or therapeutic trial under examination is useless.

However, if the application of the remedy (agent) leads to a decrease in biophoton emission, one may assume that its application will result in an improvement of the state and possibly even in healing of the disease. Our experience has shown that in such cases the normal cells which are always present in a real tumor are likely activated into removing or suppressing the tumor cells. This therapy follows just the opposite strategy than the usual tumor therapy. Instead of killing tumor cells (and the connected normal tissue), it stimulates the normal tissue into overcoming malignancy of the entire cell population, in other words into providing b

The disadvantage of this therapy consists in the possibility of an operation being necessary to find the suitable remedy. However, Zhang and Popp (9) have shown that to some degree, the loss of coherence can be measured not only by investigating the biophoton emission of either tissue or body (10), but also by statistically analyzing physiological parameters, i.e. resistance (or conductivity) values of the body. Coherence of the regulating fields is strongly related to the log-normal distribution of physiological parameters, a fact that is well known in statistical medicine under the name of “multiplicative “Gestaltungs” principle. As soon as coherence is lost, the log-normal distribution of the skin’s conductivity values turns more and more into a Gaussian distribution. An example is shown in Fig. 6. A German company developed an electrode that enables us to measure hundreds of conductivity values of the human skin in a rather short time. After suitable adjustment of the measurement values the statistical distribution is available and provides a rather reliable indicator of the degree of coherence of the field within the human body. In this non-invasive manner, one may follow rather comfortably both the state of disease and its development under treatment.

In light of new confirmation (11-13), it seems useful to further pursue this theoretical concept and the idea of measuring the degree of coherence of the biophoton field in living systems in order to open the door to the understanding and eventual overcoming of cancer.

Biophoton therapy: an appraisal

Biophotons are interesting phenomena, and Dr Popp is the founder of the work on biophotons and the putative role in cellular biochemical reactions. The work of Dr Popp is hghly innovatove, but sadly enough, it has also be the base of the so called biophoton therapy. The Starlight is a machine, brought to the market, to treat a variety of diseases with biophotons, such as malaria, Lyme, multple sclerosis, schizophrenia, depression etc. Our foundation is very concerned about these unproven claims, and asked Dr Popp for his appraisal. In the following clipp you find our analysis of biophoton therapy.

But let us first quote the concern of Dr Popp related to the use of biophoton machines and the claimed indications:

We ourselves did never claim that “biophoton machines” are able at all. The living system is working with biophotons which regulate the whole cell metabolism, since the about 100 000 chemical reactions which are permanently taking place per second and per cell have to be activated by photons (according to the knowledge of biochemistry, see, for instance, the text books of biochemistry).

This requirement of a extremely high coherence within the living system EXCLUDES the possibility of manufacturing a machine with this unbelievable accuracy and capacities. Nevertheless, there are always scharlatans who believe in these miracles.

And here we quote the content of a internetsite on the Starlight:


Welcome to Biostarlight, a Bio-Photon Coherency Therapy company that utilises StarLight technology to enable the body to heal itself. Biostarlight was founded in 2006 by Anouk Puper, a qualified Bio-Photon Therapist based in Chelsea, London.


Bio-Photon Coherency Therapy assists the body’s immune system to function at optimum levels, which enables the body to heal itself. The Therapy utilises StarLight technology, which is a series of instruments capable of measuring light emissions from acupuncture points, using fibre-optic cables and crystal electrodes. Once these light emissions or vibrations have been located the readings are fed into the system, which is fully equipped with therapy programmes based on common symptoms of other patient’s experiences. The therapeutic process is then delivered using optical glass electrodes, held in the patient’s hands.


Bio-Photon Coherency Therapy is commonly used to treat allergies, anxiety, acne, asthma, arthritis, blood pressure, bronchitis, chronic fatigue, colds and flu, intestinal problems, depression, dyslexia, emotional problems, electromagnetic disturbances, herpes, glaucoma, gall stones, headaches, leukaemia, scars, stomach complaints, pre-menstrual tension, migraines, kidney stones, menopause, nose and throat polyps, prostate problems, back pain, whiplash, crown’s disease, lyme disease, pfeiffer syndrome and multiple sclerosis.


Scar Therapy: Surgical scaring causes a great disturbance to the body, primarily in the blockage of the organ’s energy supply. With the StarLight one can treat these scars and in about 50% of all cases, the scar disappears completely from the skin’s surface. In all cases the scar tissue that has formed disappears along with its associated weather sensitivity and redness.

Spin Inversion Therapy: An increasing number of people suffer from “electron spin inversion”. This is caused by external magnetic fields that influence the rotational direction of the electrons in the body. As electromagnetic fields surround us in our everyday life (computers, television, electrical appliances…) the likelihood of electron spin inversion increases. The usual result is chronic fatigue, allergies and a body that works against itself. This therapy returns the electron spin to the proper direction.

Dyslexia Therapy: There are many people who suffer from dyslexia, a non-integration of the brain hemispheres. This treatment treats more than just dyslexia.

Psychological Problems: There are those who claim that physical problems stem from psychological disorders. It has been our experience that the reverse is true. Depression, manic depression, schizophrenia and phobias are all improved with the StarLight.



Bio-Programming is a ground breaking healing method, which permits to resolve emotional conflicts, related to health disorders. Bio-programming will give you the opportunity to become the master of your emotional healing and improve all areas of your life.

The mission of Bio-Programming is to bring a new level of awareness regarding physical and emotional health and how the two are related. It offers solutions to those in search of healthy, purposeful and fulfilling lives.

The origin of health disorders

Scientific research shows that illness has a specific meaning and purpose in terms of the survival of the species. Health disorders as well as limiting behaviors are the result of an adaptive mechanism, which is triggered in synchronicity with our emotional traumas and stresses.

Despite  appearances,  nothing  happens  at  random  and  all  living  beings  are  programmed  in  terms  of survival. An illness or symptom is the result of an unresolved emotional distress. When an individual is unable to consciously find a solution to an emotional conflict and when this conflict creates unmanageable stress, the subconscious brain will transpose the stress into the organ. This is the moment when the illness begins.

As  soon  as  we  experience  a  peak  level  of stress  (shock  or  intense  permanent  conflict),  we  solicit  our sympathetic nervous  system  (fight  or  flight  response). During such circumstances our subconscious brain evaluates our situation as dangerous. Subsequently an adaptive program involving a change in our biology (disease) will manifest. Our  organs  express  our  emotions,  in  ways  that permit  to resolve  in  our body what we cannot resolve in our mind. For instance a shock related to a painful separation, the loss of a loved one, a worry for a child, or the fear of death can prompt unmanageable stresses and be at the root of specific illnesses. Similarly,  negative  reactions  or  limiting  behaviors within  each  of  us,  which  appear  to  be  triggered  by people  or  various  circumstances,  are  in  fact  associated  to our subconscious  imprints. We can eliminate such imprints from our subconscious and ultimately change our behavioral and biological reactions.

Our health disorders as well as our behaviors, choices and life paths, are often associated to ancestral and gestational  programs, which  we  can  liberate  in  order  to  increase  our  free  will  and  power  in  shaping  our future.

The method of Bio-programming will provide you with the resources you need to produce specific, long lasting healthful changes in your life. You will have the opportunity to reconnect with your true self, walk on the path you desire, and create your own future.

The bio-programming  Technique integrates  cutting  edge  modalities  and  knowledge  for  the  resolution of  psychological  conflicts  related  to  illness  as  well  as  limiting  behaviors. The modalities and methods used are not intended to replace any medical, psychiatric or licensed therapy treatments.

You have the power to change your own biology as well as your life path. Would you consider an  alternate  reality  and  put  aside  for  a  moment,  the  old  beliefs  you  have  adopted  during  your  life regarding  the  causes  of  health  disorders? Would  you  like  to  acquire  a  new  awareness  offered  by a revolutionary cutting  edge  science?

PHOTON DIRECTED ACTION: Including Low Level Laser (LLLT) has been a powerful adjunct to treating oral, dental and upper respiratory infections.  The mechanism of this FDA approved modality include stimulating the cells and tissue to function optimally.  In addition we have had dramatic responses reported using our Photon Directed Action (PDA) protocol for allergens and toxins. Several patients have virtually eliminated their allergy symptoms and medication need using this technique.

Photon Directed Action (PDA)

Shining light through a homeopathic vial has been shown to promote the release of a toxin or resolution of a condition if the homeopathic solution resonates with the body.  Photon Directed Action (PDA) has been reported to help detoxification, reduce allergic reactions, reduce autoimmunity, and promote an effective response to and apparent resolution of infections.  PDA has been reported to enable much more rapid and deeper detoxification of specific toxins compared to other techniques.  Some medical doctors using PDA report clearing of chronic deep-seated infections, resolution of auto-immune reactions, and elimination of allergies.

In Photon Directed Action (PDA), light passing through a glass vial containing a specific homeopathic substance is swept over your body enabling/directing you to release toxins and/or resolve infections.  The substances in the vial are determined by kinesiology or electrodermal screening (ASYRA).  A PDA treatment takes 5-10 minutes.  PDA is a safe and rapid way to “remove” infections or toxins in 24 hours that otherwise might take 50-100 days to release.

How Does PDA Work? Unlike pharmaceutical medicine, which works primarily by chemically blocking or stimulating biochemical pathways in the body, PDA works on the quantum physical properties of the body.  PDA carries information into the cells of the body via photons (light) very similar to the biophotons produced by each human cell. Fritz-Albert Popp, PhD and others have proven that biophotons produced by human cells are responsible for information transfer between cells and tissues that regulates cell growth, cell differentiation, and biochemical activities (such as cellular detoxification).  PDA uses photons to direct the body into action.  The specific action is determined by four main components:

  1. the wavelength of the light (we use specific infra-red and a red laser wavelengths)
  2. the intensity of the light (we use low level laser rather than the cutting lasers used in surgery)
  3. the frequency imprinted into the solution (usually determined by ASYRA testing or a specific specimen)
  4. the locations on the body where the photons are directed (everywhere except the eyes)

What is the basis for PDA?  Acupuncture is well known to facilitate healing.  Scientific studies verifying the effects of acupuncture abound, although scientific explanation for the mechanism of action remains elusive. The traditional theory states that Qi (chi) or vital energy is the animating force behind biochemical reactions and all living things.   It is the difference between life and death.  The goal of acupuncture is to reestablish balance within the flow of Qi, so the body will heal itself.  Acupuncture is traditionally accomplished through insertion of needles at acupuncture points, located along meridians — pathways along which Qi travels, connecting the surface of the body energetically with the internal organs.  Acupuncture points are more electrically conductive, i.e., exhibit less electrical resistance when tested by a galvanometer, compared to other skin.  Stimulation by any means thereby produces a polarity or electrical gradient, facilitating electromagnetic conduction, or movement of Qi.

Just as acupuncture is a very old system of medicine, so is light therapy or phototherapy (photon therapy]. Phototherapy was practiced in ancient Egypt, Greece, China, and India. The Egyptians used sunlight as well as color for healing. In the past 120 years, great strides have been made in research and development of colored light as well as full spectrum light therapy. In 1876 Augustus Pleasanton reported the effects of stimulating glands, organs, and nervous system with blue light.  In 1877 Seth Pancoast reportedly used red and blue light to balance the autonomic nervous system. In 1878 Dr. Edwin Babbitt published The Principles of Light and Color, in which he wrote about a system for applying colored light to the body in colored bottles containing water charged by the sun. He was able to successfully treat many stubborn medical conditions, unresponsive to conventional treatments of the time.

Dr. Niels Finsen, a Danish physician, pioneered light therapy in the 1890’s. He noticed that tubercular skin lesions were much more common during the long dark winters, but rare in summer. In 1892 he began treating this condition with light. Later he used red light to prevent scar formation from smallpox, and eventually established a light institute for the treatment of tuberculosis. His work was so successful in the treatment of skin tuberculosis with ultraviolet light that he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1903.

Dinshah Ghadiali, PhD, MD (India), an American who immigrated from India, was highly influenced and inspired by Babbitt’s work.  In 1897, the course of his life and views on medicine were forever changed when he saved the life of a woman dying from intractable dysentery.  Under conventional treatment his patient continued to have 100 diarrheal stools per day. As a last resort, Dinshah proceeded to shine indigo light on the patient’s body. By the end of the first day, the number of evacuations was reduced to 10. By the third day she was out of bed.

By 1920, after 23 years of research and clinical observation, Dinshah, as he came to be known in America, had refined a sophisticated system of color phototherapy he called Spectro-Chrome.  Influenced by a strong background in mathematics and physics, he reasoned that the physiologic effects of individual colors would correspond with the action of the mineral which exhibited that color on spectrometry.  He thereby determined in detail, specific “attributes” of the colors, i.e., the specific effects of the colors on the physiology.  He further determined precise and predictable formulations of applying colored light directly to the body for a variety of physical injury and illness. He was the first to develop a system of healing utilizing all the colors of the spectrum based on three principles:

  1. The human body responds to light
  2. Colors relate to physiologic function
  3. Color tonation (broadcasting specific colors to the body surface) aids bodily function.

The scientific explanation for this rests in quantum physics and color theory: the photoelectric effect first discovered by Hertz, and the theory of light elucidated by Einstein. By the photoelectric effect, when light strikes any material substance, electrons are discharged, creating a current. In other words, light interacts with matter as the energy of the light is transferred to electrons.

There is no doubt that light is necessary for health, and even life itself.  Colored light has a particular ability to balance the autonomic nervous system, which is crucial in most chronic and functional disorders as it regulates all of the automatic processes of the human body: breathing, the beating of the heart, the functioning of the digestive tract, the stress response. Light as an environmental stimulant, is second only to food in its impact on controlling bodily functions.  We are just starting to recognize, investigate, and understand the integral and profound role light plays in regulating and maintaining health in the body/mind.

Russian researchers at the Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine have shown that light applied to the human skin penetrates the body between 2 and 30 mm, depending on the color frequency (another explanation for the individual color attributes).  The researchers found that only certain areas of the body were able to transfer light beneath the surface, and that these areas corresponded to acupuncture points and the light was conducted within the body along acupuncture meridians.  Although light penetration may be superficial, deeper physiological processes may be stimulated. It seems that the meridians are a light transferal system in the body somewhat like optical fiber.  Just as light through fiber optics is being used to transfer information almost instantly around the globe, perhaps the meridian system as a conductor of light provides the coherent unified theory of a subtle energy information system within the body.  This could be the missing link, uniting materialistic medicine with subtle energy healing modalities, and bridge the gap between physics and metaphysics.

Tina Karu, Ph.D., with the Laser Technology Center in Russia and affiliated with the University of California at Berkeley has researched the effects of light on the cell since the 1980’s. She has found that there are photo-receptors at the molecular – cellular level that, when triggered, activate a number of biological reactions: DNA / RNA synthesis, increase cAMP levels, protein and collagen synthesis, and cellular proliferation. The result is rapid regeneration, normalization and healing of damaged cellular tissue. In essence, light is a trigger for the rearrangement of cellular metabolism.

Research from Cornell University also supports this supposition that the body absorbs light through the skin, and that this light has physiological action. Chrono biologist Scott Campbell found that the biological clock could be reset by shining light on the back of the knee.  Prior to this it was believed that the light had to be transmitted through the eyes.

Photon therapy in combination with acupuncture is actually quite common, interfacing through the use of laser technology.  Laser, an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation, is simply light that is coherent. Coherent light beams have minimum divergence and maximum parallelism over distance.  This is as opposed to incoherent light which is regular visible light beams which scatter. Hot lasers are used in surgery to cut, cauterize, and destroy tissues.  In contrast, we only use Lower power lasers, referred to as “soft” or “cold” lasers, in place of needles for acupuncture (“needleless acupuncture”) to produce therapeutic effects through photo bio stimulation. Soft lasers are classified by the FDA as Class III, non-significant risk medical devices for investigational purposes only.

There is a vast amount of research documenting the biological responses and efficacy of laser bio stimulation, much of which is applicable to incoherent light. It has a homeostatic effect: promoting skin regeneration or reducing scar tissue, promotes hair re-growth, decreasing pain or promoting enhanced sensitivity in numb areas, reducing swelling and irritation or improving circulation and enhancing the immune system. However, soft laser treatment is not without risk. It can be overused in intensity and duration. It is harmful if it comes in contact with the eyes.

Dr. Karu (noted above) contends that coherent light (LASER) is not necessary, that incoherent light is equally effective at producing clinical results. Furthermore, she found that coherent light is converted to incoherent light in the body. The exact effect depends on the wavelength, dose and intensity. In Israel, medical doctors utilize incoherent light transmitted by light emitting diodes (LED’s) in the practice of neurology, dentistry, dermatology, physiotherapy, and in cosmetic applications to promote collagen and elastin formation.

Does PDA address immune problems?  Autoimmunity explains a lot of otherwise unexplainable health problems.  Since the immune system doesn’t recognize your own cells as “foreign” it will not attack itself unless a “non-self” molecule enters your system and binds to one of your own cells.  Your immune system will react to this hybrid molecule as foreign, and the antibodies and other immune mediators produced will then cross-react with the normal human cell/receptor/protein.  Let’s say the foreign protein or microbe cross-reacts with the neurotransmitter involved in sleep.  If your body now reacts to this neurotransmitter, you may never again enjoy a full night’s rest.  If the normal human molecule was involved your sex hormones; you may have your reproductive cycle or function out of balance.  If you are susceptible to autoimmunity, the more toxins to which you are exposed, the greater is your chance for ill health based upon this principle of auto-immunity.

PDA is designed to help your body release these “foreign” molecules from your body through a four step process.  First, the “message” is carried in a homeopathic solution containing the frequency of the specific toxin/microbe to be addressed.  The “message” is delivered into your entire body and into your cells using the infra-red photons from the Quanta Ray, which seems to stimulate your cells and tissues to release the toxin/microbe.  The next 3 messages are delivered using a red LASER beam.  The first message (homeopathic solution) is designed to aid in releasing toxins/microbes out of your cells into the circulation or into your interstitial space between cells.  It is called a DDS frequency (Detoxify and Drainage Support).  The next message (homeopathic remedy) contains the frequencies of the toxin/microbe(s) determined by the ASYRA evaluation.  These frequencies help you escort the toxins/microbes now liberated from your cells and tissues out of your body.   Last we direct a message against the auto-immune process previously set up by the toxin in question to restore/support/stimulate any tissues affected by the toxin.

What can I expect from a PDA session?  Generally, ASYRA testing is done to assess your specific needs. The software within the ASYRA lists energetic frequencies that support detoxification of your individual needs based on the specific toxins found.  A small bottle of Resonance Formula derived from the ASYRA is placed in front of the LEDs of a Quanta-Ray infra-red device, which is then used to “sweep” your body.  The Quanta-Ray directs the ASYRA Resonance Formula into your body.  Following this, a red LASER “sweeps” your body using three different Resonance Formulations to direct your body to:

  1. Detoxify and drain your cells and tissues of toxins and microbes
  2. Respond to the chosen ASYRA Formula or specimen and promote excretion from your body
  3. Re-balance your Glands, Hormones, Organs, and Neurotransmitters (GHON for short).

By using the LED and laser over your entire body (except your eyes), we ensure that all of your acupuncture control points (of which in Traditional Chinese Meridians there are a few hundred, but there may be many many more not classified as common but are areas of increased susceptibility to information input) are stimulated.  Using this sequence, the PDA session is more reliable and enables very short treatment times (10 minutes).  Because we use a laser, even though of modest power, the staff member and the patient wear special glasses that reduce any chance of eye injury from the laser.  In addition, we ask you remove all metal from your body to reduce reflections.

Following the PDA session, you must allow the body to run through a complete 24 hour cycle by avoiding any activities that might interfere with drainage, detoxification, acupuncture meridian flow, autonomic nervous system function, or emotional-limbic system tranquility.

  1. Avoid the main ingredients for which the PDA was chosen such as sulfa products, chemicals, foods, etc.
  2. Drink plenty of purified (never distilled) water.
  3. Avoid any “hands on” therapies such as massage, chiropractic, electrotherapy, acupuncture, physical therapy, strenuous work-outs, etc.
  4. Do not use any homeopathic agents including the ASYRA Resonance Formula

Occasionally toxins seem to get stuck in specific “stubborn” locations during the 24 hours after a PDA session.  When this occurs, another PDA session using the Quanta Ray and red Laser can be emphasized on the areas of greatest inflammation (toxic foci, recent surgeries, recent injuries, etc.).  Sometimes an acute situation arises and will require an LED sweep to be done again.
