Infra red light therapy
I am hearing some amazing benefits of doing infra red light therapy. It sounds to good to be true. But it is suppose to fight all kinds of cancer, improve metabolism, weight loss, help thyroid problems, improve blood circulation and a host of other things.

You can buy infra red light lamps or saunas but they are often expensive.

Or you can make your own at a small cost. All you need are infra red bulbs which can be purchased at most lighting or hardware stores. They cost about $15 a bulb. Then make a frame with bulb sockets.

I found a used chandelier in the garbage. I just added my infrared bulbs to it and put it on the back of a chair with strings to fasten it. All done. Did not even have to make a frame.

I try to use it about 20 minutes a day.

Only been doing it for a week now.

Has anyone tried this before and what are your opinions?

Cheers.

So you never tested the frequency? If you your lamp does not have the correct frequency then you are wasting your time.

Also, infared lights and red lights are different. They are at different frequencies and have different benefits.

As for me, I tried red light therapy but I did not notice any benefits so I stopped.

RE: Infra red light therapy
Thanks for your reply. I am surprised there is not a lot of interest on infra red light therapy on this forum.

You need a 250 Watt infra red bulb which costs about $10 - $15 us dollars. An ordinary red light bulb will do nothing - it must be infra red.

VI. DIFFERENCES BETWEEN INFRARED HEAT LAMPS AND SIMPLE RED LIGHT BULBS



The reddish “heat lamp” is tuned to produce a lot of infrared with a special filament design. In contrast, a red light bulb is just an incandescent lamp with a red filter. They are quite opposite in their effects.

Red light bulbs do not emit much energy in the infrared range. They mainly emit light in the red range of frequencies. Red light, in fact, can be irritating and stimulating to the body, but not infrared.

Infrared, particularly near infrared light, is very beneficial for our bodies. I know that many people claim that we need far infrared rays, but we don’t agree with this because we don’t find it to be the truth.

The infrared lamps sold as “heat lamps” in most hardware stores emit a little red, orange and yellow light, but mostly emit near infrared.

I spoke with a woman who experienced this. She shined a red “heat lamp” on her puppies and noticed how calm and happy they became. Then she used just a red light bulb from the store. The animals did not like it at all. She concluded there was a difference in the lights, but she did not know what it was.

If one sat in sauna with just red lights, many would hate the sauna. Instead, most people report they are calmed and healed by the infrared sauna frequencies. The small amount of red light does not bother them.

How would you test frequency? And which frequency is best in you opinion. Also I think what works best is the infra red saunas instead of just the light. There is a lot of positive reviews and research and almost none is negative. How long did you try it for -- it may take some time to see results.

Those are basic questions that you should have asked before building the lamps.

You don't seem to have done much research on the topic, which is why I get the feeling that your DIY lamps probably aren't emitting the correct frequency.

I did around 2 months of red light therapy and I didn't see or feel any noticeable changes. I used a 670 frequency.

I've modified a FIR sauna by adding insulation, insulating the temperature sensor shut off, adding padding, adding lamps. There are a couple of things I've found.

The notion that you should not enter the sauna when it is already uncomfortably hot is true. I think this corresponds to not engaging your sympathetic nervous system, so as to ensure cortisol is not released, which would decrease blood flow to extremities and decrease efficiency of detox through sweat.

I've found that 2x 200w NIR bulbs is too much. I also found 1x 200 NIR bulb with 2x 75w UV bulbs is too much. Both of these result in damaging the skin after more than 10m. I'm also very white (transparent) though.

If you do things to increase blood flow in the sauna, that is optimal. There are a number of things you can do for this. You can bring in exercise items, like hand exercise devises, bands, etc. You can also do skin rubbing.

On an unrelated matter, how do I get permission to create threads?

RE: Infra red light therapy
As far as I have read on The Energy Blueprint website, the healing power of red/infrared light therapy decreases significantly skin flaws:
• Acne
• Psoriasis and eczema
• Herpes sores
• Blemishes
• Age spots and photo hyper pigmentation
• Skin redness, including Rosacea
• Fine lines due to sun damage
• Perinocular wrinkles
• Enlarged pores
• Coarse skin
• Mottled complexion
• Skin laxity
I don't have any depression or skin problems or anything. But I got rid of a headache thanks to red light therapy
