Far Infrared Light

Infrared light is similar to normal light, but its wavelength is too long for our eyes to detect.   Far infrared light has an even longer wavelength and transfers heat very efficiently.   It is why sunlight feels warm.  It can penetrate 6-8 inches into the body, and because of this, these rays not only benefit the surface, but all cells including blood vessels, lymph glands and nerves in the deepest parts of our body.   This deeply penetrating heat speeds cellular metabolism, reduces pain and quickly heals injuries.  In comparison, heat transferred merely by conduction (contact) or convection (airflow) does not heat an object deeply or evenly throughout.  Amethyst was found to be ideal for the purpose of converting conductive heat into far infrared light.

Negative Ions

Negative Ions (NIs) are sometimes referred to as nature's energizer. At a molecular level, these NIs deliver a massage which accelerates and deepens all healing and cleansing processes. NIs also balance pH by decreasing acidity. This activates the body's entire cellular communication system resulting in more efficient all-body functions.  Ions balance the absorption of nutrients and elimination of waste in cells.  When that balance is off due to the overwhelming presence of positive ions in the environment, our cells are unable to maintain this important function, resulting in illness and disease.  

Negative ions are particles in the air that have an extra electron.  They are plentiful near large quantities of moving water such as rainstorms, waterfalls or the ocean.   As antioxidants, these particles tend to donate their extra electron, and this can directly cancel oxidation in the body. When the BioMat is turned on, it produces these ions on its surface to transmit the healing effects of these pristine, natural settings.  

Amethyst Quartz

For thousands of years and across many cultures, amethyst has been thought to calm and clear the mind.   We have no direct mechanism to explain this effect.  Nevertheless, most people report an improved mood and less anxiety after a BioMat treatment.   Amethyst also has a low specific heat and so it cannot store heat very well.  It must shed excess heat in the form of infrared light.  Other infrared devices use carbon or ceramic “lamps,” which are less efficient, producing light with shorter wavelengths and lower intensity.  

Advanced Technology

Science and medicine have come together to develop this revolutionary device for home and professional use.  FIR was discovered by NASA to be the safest, most beneficial wave of light. It is an electronic wave which, because of its length, can penetrate into our bodies 6-8 inches and generate frictional heat which, in turn, stimulates our cells to move.  This cellular movement stimulates healing and regeneration of body functions such as circulation, detoxification, and immune function. It is important to keep the internal body temperature at an optimal level (98.6º) for maximum function. It has been discovered that the average body temperature has dropped to about 97º. It is the reduction of body temperature that creates disease.

Using science developed by NASA and a computer designed by Texas Instruments, the BioMat is truly the result of the combined expertise of highly recognized scientists.   In 2010, The Royal Swedish Academy of Science, which has appointed Nobel Prize nominations, awarded the BioMat a grand prize in the medical device field.  It also registered as a medical device with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The United Nations gave the BioMat an award for its contribution to health care enhancement around the world.  Even Pope Benedict XVI acknowledged the BioMat for its contribution in saving numerous HIV-infected children in Africa, and for treating many hard-to-cure diseases around the world.
