Amethyst Healing Bed (Biomat)
How The Amethyst Healing Bed (Biomat) Works
Far Infrared Light: This is light that is below the visible part of the spectrum. It penetrates several inches into most objects, transferring heat very efficiently. It is why sunlight feels warm. In comparison, heat transferred merely by conduction (a.k.a. contact) or convection (a.k.a air flow) does not heat an object deeply, or evenly throughout.
Negative Ions: These are particles in the air that have an extra electron. They are significant because bodies can be damaged by oxidative stress (a.k.a. free radicals), but breathing these free electrons neutralizes oxidizing compounds. Negative ions are an anti-oxidant! You may notice benefits of mood and alertness as well, due to increased serotonin levels.
Amethyst: This material was chosen primarily because it converts heat energy into far infrared light very efficiently, due to its crystalline structure. But it’s long use in the spiritual healing field, across different cultures, suggests it may have some more mysterious benefits as well. It has been called nature’s superconductor!
The BioMat is designed to emit light at wavelengths that have healing properties. Amethyst was chosen because of its unique light signature and conductive properties. When heated, it emits light at 8 and 12 microns of wavelength. This light, on the far infrared side of the spectum, penetrates deeply into tissues, increases circulation and metabolism, and relieves pain directly.
Cells are able to absorb more oxygen, export more acidic wastes, and repair themselves faster when metabolism is higher. The healing tools have been found to benefit the treatment of chronic pain conditions, as well as autoimmune conditions, including fibromyalgia, back pain, neuropathy, Lyme disease, and even arthritis.
Benefits of The Amethyst Healing Bed
Supports Core Body Temperature
There are over 75,000 types of enzymes that run our bodies and digest our food. But those chemical processes have a speed limit – the temperature of our body. If our temperature is too low, our enzymes are inhibited, and cannot do their job. The BioMat increases core body temperature for many hours after a good session.
Relieves Stress, Improves Mood, Promotes Relaxation
The BioMat is a very powerful tool when combined with meditation and deep relaxation. Many people wear headphones with ambient music to help clear their minds and create a more soothing experience. The goal is to open up healthy mind-body pathways. Reducing stress hormones like cortisol can lead to a cascade of other beneficial effects.
Heals Soft Tissue
For brand new injuries, ice is the best treatment. However, for existing injuries, and chronic inflammation, heat is the best treatment. The BioMat is uniquely effective because it penetrates deeply and evenly to deliver heat right at the injury site, rather than on the skin.
The brain can only accept so many signals at the same time. So, if we activate enough heat receptors in our body, their signals to the brain begin to crowd out the pain signals. This is known as the “gate” effect, because not everything can make it through the brain’s gate at the same time.
Using the BioMat expands and relaxes the capillaries, because they attempt to shed excess heat through the skin. This lowers blood pressure, and makes more nutrients and oxygen available to cells.
Sweating purges clogged pores of deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells leaving you with glowing skin. An increase in blood circulation encourages a healthy flow of nutrients to your skin and helps relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, and burns. Rinsing off after using the mat will enhance this benefit.
At the medium and high settings, the BioMat can begin to produce higher body temperatures, better circulation, and more oxygen-rich blood. This all translates into a faster pace of cellular activity which speeds up tissue repair, immune response, and detoxification.
Boosts Immune System
Fevers put our immune system into overdrive, but they can also be scary if left unchecked. Since the BioMat can elevate our body temperature by a few degrees, in a more controlled way, we can give our immune system a boost whenever we need it most.
Many pathogens (conveniently for them) thrive at normal body temperatures. They are adapted to thrive in the conditions of their host. But by changing this preferred environment, we can slow them down while at the same time ramping up our own immune system, and turn the tide of infection more quickly.
Towards the higher settings, the BioMat can produce a considerable amount of heat, and has sauna-like effects. Placing a blanket over top of you can further enhance these effects. But drink water and be careful not to overdo it. The body will work hard to shed heat, and in doing so, it will shed a lot of built-up toxins too.
