Experience the Benefits of Far Infrared Technology
Heating the body between 41 and 48°C (105.8 – 139.99.4°F) is called hyperthermia. A very safe and efficient way of heating the body to this precise temperature is through the use of Far Infrared Rays (FIR). FIR is a type of radiant energy that is similar to sunlight and is well beyond the ability of the naked eye to see. FIR is capable of penetrating beneath the skin’ s surface, where it gently elevates the body’s temperature as it is absorbed.
Over the last ten years, many studies have discovered that raising the temperature in the entire body (whole-body-hyperthermia) can increase the effectiveness of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and irradiation (Sagowski et al., 2002). Treatments such as irradiation and chemotherapy are designed to destroy rapidly reproducing cells, but can also harm the bone marrow and its ability to produce white blood cells (key components of the immune system). A study conducted on mice by Zaidi and colleagues (2002) suggests that whole-body-hyperthermia helps to regulate the immune system by inducing cytokines, cells responsible for the protection and regeneration of important immune cells. Even if you are healthy, you have abnormal cells in your body and your immune system is hard at work identifying and destroying this dangerous tissue. With diseases such as cancer, the immune system is unable to keep up with the growth rate of these mutated cells. Hyperthermia has been shown to produce a type of “heat-shock proteins” that mark tumors as invaders, assisting the immune system in identifying abnormal tissue (Sagowski et al., 2002).
Hyperthermia also has a powerful effect on the circulatory system. In response to the increased temperature, blood vessels in the body expand, allowing circulation to increase (Sagowski et al., 2002). This allows the blood to inundate each cell with nutrients and vital oxygen. Once in the cell, nutrients and oxygen are converted to energy. Exposure to FIR can increase the body’s energy reserve and enhance metabolism. Just as it brings nutrients and oxygen, increased circulation also enhances the removal of toxins and waste products from the cell. For example, when your muscles do not receive enough oxygen, they produce lactic acid and you may experience this as soreness. FIR therapy has been shown to relieve minor aches and pains associated with muscle and bone.
The results of FIR are phenomenal, as heat therapy can enhance the immune system, increase blood flow and oxygenation, relieve minor aches and pains and help to eliminate toxins. Do you want to experience these benefits for yourself? TheChiMachine.com currently has two affordable products that maximize FIR technology. The HotHouse’s specially designed dome-shape and multifaceted acute-angled silicon surface maximizes the radiant heat absorbed by the user. This product is perfect for comfortably heating the entire body!

Radio Frequency (RF) engineers are faced many times with the following two questions: “What are the effects of radio waves on human health?” and, more specifically, “What health risks are associated with the use of cell phones, mobile radios, microwave radios, microwave ovens, broadcast radio and television transmitters, power lines and X-rays?” In recent times, many people have expressed an interest in learning if the use of cell phones is associated with cancer. Many have heard or read about possible links between cell phones and cancer, but conclusions are rarely definitive. This paper will attempt to answer these questions, but first, we must develop a basic understanding of electromagnetic radiation (EMR).
Electromagnetic Frequency Spectrum Wireless communication links have been used worldwide for many years as solutions for connectivity in point-to-point and point-to multipoint applications. The most common wireless solutions include AM and FM radio, television broadcast stations, mobile and cellular phones, radar and microwave systems. The electromagnetic (EM) spectrum contains an array of electromagnetic waves increasing in frequency from Extremely Low Frequency and Very Low Frequency (ELF/VLF), through Radio Frequency (RF) and Microwaves, to Infrared (IR) light, Visible Light, Ultraviolet (UV) light, X-rays, and Gamma rays.
Some heating effect is generated by all of these waves. Insufficient energy is available from most common sources to produce any type of damage to human tissue, although it is probable that higher power densities, such as those densities very near high-voltage power lines or high-power (megawatt) broadcast transmitters, could have long-term health effects. The power density of any source of EMR is not only related to the power level at the source, but increases rapidly as the distance from the source decreases. A common concern today, since more
Optical Effects (Ultraviolet, Visible and Infrared Light)
Sources of optical radiation exposure include:
Intense optical radiation will cause electron excitation. This means that electrons in tissue near the body’s surface can absorb energy from intense optical sources, thereby causing heating and even burning.
Optical radiations are not very penetrating; therefore, the eye and the skin are the organs of greatest concern. The immediate effects can be retinal injury to the eye as well as abnormal redness and burning of the skin due to solar radiation (sunburn).Delayed effects include cataract formation, retinal degeneration, accelerated aging, and skin cancer.
Effects of Infrared (IR)
However, while visible light energy is emitted by objects only at a high temperature, infrared energy is emitted by all objects at ordinary temperatures. Some studies have shown that infrared energy can have positive effects on human cells in that it can help to rebuild connective tissue. Infrared radiation has no correlation with ultraviolet radiation and, applied in moderation, has no damaging effect on human health.
Far Infrared therapy may help in fat loss, chronic fatigue, water retention, skin disorders, as well as in the elimination of heavy metals, poisons, and carcinogenic material from our bodies. Far Infrared therapy very gently increases blood flow by expanding the capillaries that carry blood. It also increases oxygenation and regeneration of the blood, deeply detoxifying it for the improved functioning of all of the major organs in the body which depend on blood for energy. This detoxification is on the deepest level, allowing hidden toxins in the blood and tissue to be dissolved or immobilized. Through the subtle heating, Far Infrared boosts our immune system, increasing the amount of white blood cells and killer T-cells. It is an excellent therapy for promoting healing, reducing muscle soreness, muscle spasms and relief for rheumatoid arthritis. Research by NASA has shown that far infrared on the cardiovascular system was a great way of keeping astronauts hearts’ in optimal condition. Far Infrared can also increase the processing enzyme activity in our digestive tract, as well as boost metabolism. The rejuvenating effects of Far Infrared have been shown to help heal scar tissue such as burn scars, acne scars and other forms of dermatological scarring.

Far Infrared Rays (FIR) for the winter
Far Infrared Rays (FIR), a part of natural sunlight having the longest wavelength, cannot be seen with the naked eye. When we bask in the sun, the sunlight activates every cell in the human body. Since ancient times, people have believed that appropriate exposure to sunshine can maintain and
However, long exposure to the summer sun has a negative impact on the skin. This fact is undeniable. Excessive sunlight can lead to freckles or other skin changes, some of which can be detrimental. Although FIR cannot be seen with the naked eye, it has ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of FIR's deep penetrating ability.
All matter is made up of uniquely-arranged atoms and molecules and the molecules are all moving in unison. Molecules are composed of atoms. There is a continuous cyclical vibration among and between those atoms. When molecules are illuminated with electromagnetic radiation of the same intrinsic
In other words, the vibration of atoms and molecules will generate heat and result in resonance absorption. As a result , the temperature will be elevated, the blood capillaries expanded and the blood circulation stimulated. Metabolic disturbances, such as extravasated blood (bruising) will be
The warming effect of FIR can stimulate metabolism and blood circulation. It can also promote the elimination things such as; lactic acid, free fatty acids, and subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue; excess sodium associated with hypertension; and uric acid which causes pain. Furthermore, if 5 sebaceous glands are activated, accumulated cosmetics in pores can be eliminated through the skin rather than by the kidneys. FIR is helpful in this respect.
When we feel hot, we will instinctively seek shade. When we feel cold, we seek the warmth of sunshine. No one teaches us these responses. We have an innate desire for a comfortable temperature. Comfortable temperatures are actually synonymous with a comfortable energy frequency or "wavelength". That wavelength happens to be 8 to 14 microns - the same as FIR.
The seventy-five percent of our bodies composed of water, protein, fat and other substances - all must function properly to sustain life. When living things absorb things with FIR of 8 to 14 micron wavelength, they experience resonance absorption. The vibrating movement of molecules in living tissue produces an increase in heat energy which in turn activates cells and enhances metabolism.
FIR has three properties: radiation, deep penetration, and resonance absorption. Let's look at the relationship between these three properties and living things. First, radiation: it means it can directly reach human bodies just like light does. For example, sunlight, which is also radiation, reaches earth through the vastness of space. Second, deep penetration: FIR can reach well into subcutaneous layers of the body with its deep penetration ability, generating internal warmth suitable for molecule activation in living tissue. The third feature is resonance absorption: once
In summary, FIR not only makes the human body warm, but also can activate bodily functions. In other words, it will enhance and energize both your physical and spiritual states.

MY MOTHER'S TESTIMONIAL(Chi Machine)
My mother has been suffering from Lymphodermia leg (the swelling of the ankle and leg) for many years. It was painful and demobilizing. She even had an operation, at 80, to increase circulation flow to that leg. Four years later her left foot and leg were still swollen almost all of the time. She suffered from tightness, cramping and itching besides not being able to participate in any of her regular activities such as playing cards and lawn bowling. She got to a point that she could not do her own grocery shopping as a trip to the mall which was too much for her leg. It was the
She spent about an hour every afternoon with her foot elevated and iced, as a result of simply walking around her apartment. The doctor said that there was nothing more that could be done for her except to elevate her leg and take the prescribed drugs for the daily pain that she was enduring.
Another added benefit has been that she is NO longer constipated. After about the 3rd day she said she has been going to the bathroom 15 minutes after waking in the morning and since then has been regular everyday. She has battled with this for over 20 years. I have never been so convinced of the benefit of something to write to the company, but there you go!
Thank you so much for giving my mother her life back!!!
Here’s what our distributors had to say about some of the benefits of TheChiMachine.com’s FIR products:
“ In May of 2001 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I was told that my PSA blood count was a bit over 1800. This is an extremely high count. My wife called her son, Ken, and he came out right away and brought the HotHouse with him. He had told us about the success others had achieved with lowering their counts while using the HotHouse, and I was willing to try anything, as I did not want to undergo radiation or chemotherapy.
I started using the HotHouse immediately and ordered one for myself that night… After biopsies, bone scans and ultrasounds, I was told at the end of May, that my PSA blood count was at 1885, and that the cancer had spread to my bones (back, pelvis, legs, head, etc).
On June 1st we went to the Cancer Clinic and got the pills to begin the hormone therapy to inhibit the growth of cancer. On June 12th I was taken to the hospital by ambulance after suffering a mild heart attack (unrelated to the cancer). Before leaving the hospital, the doctor injected my first hormone therapy shot. The whole time I had been using the HotHouse everyday as long as possible. Some nights I would stay under it all night, waking up only to turn it back on again. During the day I would use it whenever I had the chance.
On July19th, I went back to the doctor to have my PSA count done again to monitor the cancer. My count had dropped from 1885 to 30!!! This happened in only 12 weeks, one week of which I was in the hospital and unable to use the HotHouse. As 30 is still a very high PSA count I will continue to use the HotHouse with total confidence that I will be able to bring my cancer to “0.”
Thanks to my stepson Ken and The Chi Machine for such a great machine!”
“The Chi Machine and HotHouse has helped me to combat cancer. Two years ago I had a biopsy. It was prostate cancer. Three months later I had my prostate removed. One year later my PSA was up. I undertook 34 radiation treatments. Three months later my PSA count was higher. The doctor said I had two years to live.
There was nothing they could do for me. My brother came over with a Chi Machine and a HotHouse. He also introduced me to a friend of his who was getting good results from both machines. I purchased both machines this July 1, 2000. I changed my diet and used the HotHouse one-hour per day. The Chi Machine I used for 10 minutes per day for the first week. The second week I used the HotHouse twice a day for one hour each time and the Chi Machine 10 minutes twice a day. I noticed a big change in my health in about 10 days.
On July 17, 2000 I had a hormone shot. On October 3, 2000 my PSA test showed 0, NO CANCER!! The Chi Machine and the HotHouse gave me a second chance for life!! I feel great and will continue to use both machines every day.”
More about the Hothouse by Nathan Lipton, M.D.
Not long after obtaining and discovering the wonderful benefits of the Chi Machine, I became curious about another device made by the same company, called the HotHouse or the Far-Infrared Dome. I ordered it and found it very pleasant to use by itself or in conjunction with the Chi Machine. Around this time, my wife developed arthritis in her right hip and big toe. A rheumatologist, who recommended powerful anti-inflammatories that might have been very effective but can also cause side effects, saw her. Rather than go the pharmaceutical route, she began using the HotHouse for two 20 minute-sessions daily over her hip and foot. Within one month, all her symptoms resolved which was very impressive to me. With continued use, she remains pain-free.
Before long I brought the HotHouse and Chi Machine into my office to use with patients. The main surgery I perform is LASIK laser vision correction and I have found it extremely helpful to place all my patients on the Chi Machine and the HotHouse for 10 minutes before their procedure.
I also introduced the HotHouse to patients whom I felt could benefit from its use. One of these was Mr. Neil Hendrikson who reported his experience as follows:
Dear Dr. Lipton –
What a miracle! In seven days, no medicine was needed. My wife even started using the HotHouse for sciatica with great relief. Thank you Dr. Lipton.”
This and other patient’s experiences with the HotHouse demonstrated that far infrared rays have unique therapeutic properties. How does far infrared work? There is an excellent article in the January 2001 issue of Alternative Medicine magazine that addresses this question.
In brief brief, , here is a summary of the mechanisms and benefits of the HotHouse F Far ar Infrared unit:
1. The HotHouse raises body temperature (also known as hyperthermia) which has many benefits.
a. It promotes the killing of many pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.
b. Second, it modulates the immune system by increasing production of cytokines (special immune cells that play a very important role in disease control). In Europe and Central America, people pay exorbitant amounts of money to bring cultivated cytokines in for their health needs.
c. Third, it coordinates the immune response against mutated cells. (Mutated cells are genetic variants that occur randomly or because of environmental changes; they are usually not favorable to the survival of the person in whom they occur).
2. The HotHouse helps athletes recover faster from athletic trauma; especially the combination of the HotHouse and the Chi Machine, helps tissues repair by increasing oxygenation to the tissues and reducing the production of lactic acid. Also, through increased lymph drainage, the accumulated lactic acid from the injury is resolved sooner. It also promotes rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect on the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury). Furthermore, it increases growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and protein synthesis all necessary during tissue repair.
3. The HotHouse promotes Chinese meridian regulation. Far infrared can penetrate up to 4 cm (1 ½ inches) into the body. This excites the vibrational energy of the molecules and resonates with the cellular frequencies, and thus promotes the proper flow of energy or chi throughout the body. This in turn promotes all bioprocesses, increasing metabolism, increasing blood circulation, and the core body temperature. One hour under the HotHouse burns over 900 calories by raising the metabolism and body temperature.
4. The HotHouse detoxifies the environmentally patient. Far infrared brings about significant detoxification of heavy metals including mercury and other environmental pollutants. Finally, I will share my own personal experience with far infrared. Several months ago, I woke up and noticed there was a lump about the size of a grape on the right side of my neck. It wasn’t there the day before and I felt fine otherwise. What was it? It was likely a lymph node which certainly is a source of concern. When I got home that evening, I got under the far infrared unit for 2 hours; when I finished this treatment, the lump was unchanged. The next morning when I woke up and looked in the mirror, I was amazed to see the lump had shrunk 80%; I only wish I had taken a photograph. After another week of treatment, it disappeared.
I know that far infrared units are used in Europe and Asia to treat almost every health condition with therapeutically significant results. As a physician I am on a mission to help educate other physicians about far infrared and how this wonderful modality can be used to help their patients remain healthy.
