Health Benefits of the Biomat

THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF THE RICHWAY BIOMAT 7000MX:

INFRARED HEAT THERAPY AND NEGATIVE ION THERAPY IN ONE MODERN MEDICAL DEVICE

The Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX is a therapeutic device that combines Far Infrared Rays (FIR), Negative Ions, and Amethyst Crystals to provide a range of health benefits. The Biomat is an FDA-approved medical device that has been used for over 27 years to treat a variety of conditions, from chronic pain to insomnia.

Let's explore all of the health benefits of the Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX and its innovative infrared technology and see why so many health practitioners use the Biomat Professional, as well as the Biomat Mini, in their practices

Research on the Health Benefits of the Biomat

More and more studies are being done with the Biomat and the video to the right spotlights just some of them.  The Richway Biomat is the benchmark when it comes to infrared thermotherapy mats and that's why it gets used for studies more than any other infrared mat.  In fact, we are unaware of any study done with any other infrared mat besides the Biomat. The first study showed increased sperm counts in mice that had been using the Biomat for four weeks, and, that after the same amount of time, sperm motility was increased.  Next, they tested the difference between mice using the Biomat and mice not using it when it comes to strength and endurance.  This study showed that when the mice were placed in water, the mice that had been using the Biomat showed much more endurance and strength.  Another study was done testing human blood from individuals who had been using the Biomat versus ones who had not.  The individuals' blood that had not been using the Biomat had clustered red blood cells, which resulted in poor blood flow. The people who had been using the Biomat had blood with separated red blood cells, facilitating smooth blood flow all the way to the capillaries.

The next study compared the brainwaves of individuals using and those not using the Biomat.  Those who were not using the Biomat showed decreased Alpha wave activity and increased Beta wave activity.  Alpha waves are associated with happiness.  Beta waves are associated with stress. The people who used the Biomat showed increased Alpha wave activity and decreased Beta waves. 

The last study was done with 12 patients suffering from pain who used the Biomat for six months to observe any changes.  All 12 patients showed a decrease in internal inflammation, evidenced by decreased levels of CRP, and their pain was alleviated. CRP, or C-reactive protein, is a protein that is produced by the liver and released into the bloodstream. Elevated levels of CRP may indicate the presence of inflammation or an infection in the body. The CRP test is particularly valuable because it can detect increased CRP levels before the onset of symptoms such as pain or fever, and can also monitor the progress of infections as CRP levels decrease during recovery.  This study was published in the Mad Crave Medical Journal and can be seen here.  This clinical trial showed that Biomat users experienced a decrease in the stress hormone cortisol. 

Dr. Yoshimizu, a renowned doctor in Japan, published a book titled "The Fourth Treatment Method for Cancer Patients," stating that the Biomat increases immune function by increasing heat shock proteins (HSPs) in the body. Dr. Grant from Canada, published a study in the international research journal, Acta Scientific (Neurology) stating that the use of the Biomat and the BioAcoustic Mat reduced symptoms of dementia in 12 patients. This case study was recognized as a successful dementia treatment by the International Physical Therapy Association. 

Currently, many doctors are voluntarily conducting numerous clinical trials to verify the effectiveness of the Biomat and BioAcoustic Mat. In the future, the application of thermal therapy from the Biomat will be able to help even more people.

Pain Relief

One of the most popular uses of the Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX is for pain relief. The FIR technology in the Biomat penetrates deep (6-8 inches) into the body, promoting circulation and reducing inflammation. This can help to give temporary relief from pain caused by conditions such as arthritis, joint pain, minor muscle pain, muscle spasms, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, and back pain. The Biomat's amethyst crystals also provide muscle relaxation, further reducing pain and tension in the body, while its various heat settings let you control how much heat you are receiving.  The Biomat can also heal soft tissue injuries and speed up the healing of other types of wounds as well.

Negative ions are molecules that have gained an extra electron, giving them a negative charge, and they can be found in nature near waterfalls, oceans, and forests. These ions have been shown to help relieve pain by increasing the flow of oxygen to the brain and promoting the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers. Negative ions may also help reduce inflammation and improve circulation, which can further aid in pain relief. 

Reduced Inflammation

Infrared heat therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body as it penetrates deep into the skin and tissues, increasing blood flow and oxygenation to the affected area. This increased circulation promotes the removal of toxins and waste products, which in turn helps to reduce inflammation. 

Studies have shown that negative ions can reduce inflammation in the body by neutralizing positively charged free radicals that contribute to oxidative stress and inflammation. Negative ions also increase the production of antioxidants, which help to protect cells from damage and reduce inflammation. Additionally, negative ions can improve blood flow and oxygen delivery to tissues, which can further reduce inflammation.

The Power to Produce a Fever

In 500 B.C., Parmenides said, "Give me the power to produce fever and I'll cure all disease."

Why did he say that?

Your body's response to an infection is to develop a fever, which occurs in three stages. Initially, your body reacts by heating up, followed by the production of white blood cells by your blood and lymphatic system to fight the infection. The process of developing a fever is complex and involves the hypothalamus releasing a hormone in response to the presence of harmful bacteria or viruses. This results in the constriction of blood vessels in the skin and muscle contractions, causing shivering and an increase in body temperature. The increased temperature makes it more challenging for bacteria and viruses to survive, aiding the body in fighting the infection. In the second phase, the body reaches a new high temperature, which remains constant as the amount of heat produced and lost becomes equal. In the final phase, the body attempts to cool down by opening up the skin's blood vessels and sweating, causing detoxification.

In other words, when your body produces fever, it is fixing itself by way of your immune system and also cleansing itself. When you produced a "false fever" by using the infrared heat an Amethyst Biomat produces, now you have the power of fever. When the body doesn't have anything to "fix', it can work on improving anything it can and rids the body of toxins preventing future infection and disease. This is what is called "preventative medicine", taking a proactive stand against future health problems.

Don't worry, the power to produce a fever only comes at the highest temperatures of the Amethyst Biomat and won't feel like a fever to you. It just acts as a catalyst to promote the benefits of a fever. It's having a fever without feeling like you have a fever.

Improved Sleep

The Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX can also help to improve sleep quality. The Negative Ion therapy produced by the Biomat can increase the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is essential for regulating sleep. Additionally, the FIR technology in the Biomat provides gentle warmth and can help to promote relaxation and reduce stress, making it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night.

Detoxification

The Negative Ions produced by the Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX can also help to detoxify the body. These ions work to neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, which can cause oxidative stress and damage to cells. By neutralizing these free radicals, the Biomat can help to improve overall health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

Far infrared rays penetrate deep into the body, stimulating cellular metabolism and increasing blood circulation. This, in turn, helps to eliminate toxins from the body through sweat and urine. Additionally, far infrared rays can improve lymphatic flow and reduce inflammation, which also aids in detoxification.

Improved Circulation

Far infrared light waves penetrate deep into the body's tissues. It has been shown to improve circulation by increasing blood flow to the affected areas. This is because far-infrared radiation can penetrate up to 6-8 inches into the body, promoting the dilation of blood vessels, allowing for increased blood flow throughout the body, and increasing the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the cells. As a result, FIR therapy can be an effective way to treat conditions such as poor circulation, muscle pain, and inflammation, and can even help to promote healing and recovery after injury or surgery. It may also help to improve overall cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of conditions such as heart disease and stroke.

Negative ions increase blood flow by promoting the production of nitric oxide, a molecule that helps to dilate blood vessels. This dilation allows for more efficient circulation, delivering oxygen and nutrients to cells and tissues throughout the body. In addition, negative ions have been shown to reduce inflammation and improve immune function, further supporting healthy circulation. 

Immune System Support

The Negative Ions produced by the Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX can also help to support the immune system. These ions work to stimulate the production of white blood cells, which are essential for fighting off infections and diseases. 

Far infrared rays penetrate deep into the body, stimulating cellular metabolism and increasing blood circulation. This, in turn, helps to eliminate toxins from the body through sweat and urine. Additionally, far infrared rays can improve lymphatic flow and reduce inflammation, which also aids in detoxification. 

Reduced Stress and Anxiety

Infrared therapy has been shown to be effective in reducing stress and anxiety levels. The Biomat's infrared light penetrates the skin and stimulates the body's natural healing processes. The heat generated by the light can help to relax muscles and increase circulation, which can lead to a reduction in stress and anxiety. Infrared therapy also promotes the release of endorphins, which are natural mood boosters that can help to reduce feelings of anxiety and stress.

Negative ions are known to have a calming effect on the body and mind, making them an effective tool for reducing stress and anxiety. They work by neutralizing free radicals and other harmful particles in the air, which can cause oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. Negative ions are also believed to increase serotonin levels in the brain, which can improve mood and reduce feelings of anxiety and depression. By creating a more balanced and relaxed environment, negative ions can help individuals feel more centered, focused, and at ease, making them a valuable tool for managing stress and promoting overall wellness.

These are reasons many massage therapists use the Biomat in their practices to help their clients not only with the relaxation of their muscles but their minds as well.

 Improved Energy

The Amethyst Biomat can improve energy by emitting infrared radiation (via amethyst crystals) which penetrate the skin and heat up the body's tissues. This heat causes the body to increase blood flow to the treated area, which in turn increases oxygenation and nutrient delivery to the cells. This increased circulation also helps to remove waste and toxins from the body, which can contribute to fatigue and sluggishness.

In addition to improving circulation, infrared therapy has also been shown to increase the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) in the body. ATP is the primary source of energy for the cells, and an increase in its production can lead to improved energy levels and overall vitality.

Oxygen plays a vital role in energy production as it is necessary for the process of cellular respiration, which converts glucose into ATP, the primary source of energy for the body. Lower oxygen levels can lead to fatigue and reduced physical performance, while higher oxygen levels can increase energy and improve overall health. Proper oxygenation is essential for optimal energy at a cellular level.

Studies have shown that infrared therapy can also help to reduce inflammation in the body, which can be a major contributor to fatigue and low energy levels. Chronic inflammation can lead to a variety of health issues, including autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, and even depression. By reducing inflammation, infrared therapy can help to improve overall health and energy levels.

Studies have shown that negative ions can improve energy levels by increasing the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and energy. Negative ions also help to reduce stress and anxiety, which can drain energy levels. Additionally, negative ions can improve air quality by neutralizing pollutants and allergens, leading to better respiratory health and increased oxygen intake, which in turn boosts energy levels. The negative ions produced by the TOCA layer (tourmaline crystals) in every Biomat 7000mx provide a natural way to help improve energy.

Balancing Blood pH

Blood acidity, characterized by a pH below 7.35, can have detrimental effects on our health. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, with values below 7 being acidic and values above 7 being alkaline. Human arterial blood typically maintains a pH of around 7.40, slightly alkaline in nature.

There are several causes of blood acidity, including an unhealthy diet high in saturated fats, processed foods, and refined sugars. Chronic stress and a sedentary lifestyle can also contribute to blood acidity by affecting the body's ability to regulate pH levels efficiently.

Blood acidity poses health risks such as reduced immune function, inflammation, and hindered detoxification. An acidic environment weakens the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to infections and diseases. Chronic acidity can trigger inflammation throughout the body, leading to various chronic conditions such as arthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even cancer. Additionally, an acidic environment hampers the body's natural detoxification processes, compromising the functionality of vital organs like the liver and kidneys.

Negative ions play a crucial role in maintaining blood pH balance and purifying the blood. When negative ions are inhaled, they enter the bloodstream through the lungs and interact with the calcium and sodium ions present in the blood. This interaction leads to an ionization process that transforms the blood's pH levels into a more alkaline state. This alkalizing effect is essential for maintaining optimal metabolic function, promoting cell regeneration, and ensuring the proper functioning of organs and bodily systems. Negative ions also neutralize excessive acidity, preventing health issues associated with an overly acidic environment such as inflammation, fatigue, digestive problems, and weakened immune function. Furthermore, negative ions aid in the body's detoxification processes by purifying the blood and promoting the elimination of toxins.

The Biomat produces high concentrations of negative ions. It achieves this through a combination of two mechanisms: the use of a specialized tourmaline layer (ToCa Layer, see 17-layer construction of the Biomat) and a layer of natural, high-quality amethyst. Tourmaline and amethyst crystals generate negative ions when heated. The Biomat produces 1500 negative ions per cubic centimeter. These negative ions are absorbed by the body through various contact points, such as skin contact or inhalation.

Burns Calories

Infrared heat therapy may aid in weight loss by burning calories through increased metabolism. Infrared light penetrates deep into the skin, causing the body to produce heat and increase its metabolic rate. This increase in metabolic rate leads to the burning of calories, which can help individuals lose weight. Infrared heat therapy also increases blood flow, which can help to eliminate toxins and reduce inflammation in the body. 

Negative ions boost metabolism and can aid in weight loss. Negative ions work by neutralizing positively charged particles in the air, which can lead to increased energy levels and can improve poor circulation. This, in turn, can help to burn calories more efficiently. Negative ions can also help to reduce stress levels, which can lead to overeating and weight gain. 

Improved Skin Health

The Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX can also help to improve skin health.  Infrared heat therapy has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, which can help to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. The Negative Ions produced by the Biomat can help to neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, which can cause damage to the skin. Additionally, the FIR technology in the Biomat can help increase circulation, promoting healthy skin cell growth and reducing wrinkles and fine lines.

Improved Digestion

The Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX can also help to improve digestion. The FIR technology in the Biomat can help to increase blood flow to the digestive system, which can improve the absorption of nutrients and promote healthy digestion. Additionally, the Negative Ions produced by the Biomat can help to neutralize harmful bacteria in the gut, which can further support digestive health.

Reduced Headaches

The Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX can also help to reduce headaches. The FIR technology in the Biomat can help to improve circulation and reduce inflammation, which can alleviate headaches caused by tension and poor blood flow. Additionally, the Negative Ions produced by the Biomat can help reduce stress and anxiety, common triggers for headaches.

Improved Mood and Focus

Studies have shown that negative ions can have a positive impact on mood and focus, especially in individuals who experience anxiety or depression.

Negative ions can help to increase the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and can help to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. This can lead to an overall improvement in mood and a reduction in symptoms of depression.

In addition to improving mood, negative ions can also enhance focus and concentration. This is because they can increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, which in turn can improve cognitive function and alertness. Negative ions can also help to reduce distractions and improve mental clarity, making it easier to stay focused on tasks and achieve goals.

Cellular Healing

When negative ions come in contact with cells, they increase the cell's ability to absorb nutrients, oxygen, and water. This improved absorption leads to improved cellular function, including increased energy production, improved metabolism, and enhanced cellular communication. Negative ions also neutralize harmful free radicals, which can damage cells and cause premature aging. By promoting cellular rejuvenation, negative ions help to maintain healthy tissues and organs and slow down the aging process. 

An elevation in negative ions in the bloodstream leads to enhanced inter-cellular communication by opening up cell membranes and facilitating cellular metabolism. This, in turn, results in increased cellular nutrient uptake and hydration, as well as more efficient excretion of cellular waste materials. As cellular metabolism improves, optimal cell function is quickly restored. Further details on this discovery can be found by exploring the Nobel Prize in Physiology that was won in 1991 by Erwin Neher and Bert Sakman.

Improved Overall Health and Well-Being

The Richway Amethyst Biomat 7000MX can help to improve overall health in many ways. The combination of FIR technology, Negative Ions, and Amethyst Crystals work together to promote circulation, reduce inflammation, and support the immune system and much more. This can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases and improve overall quality of life.
