How can the Amethyst BioMat help me?
Relieves Stress, Improves Mood, Promotes Relaxation
The BioMat is a very powerful tool when combined with meditation and deep relaxation. Listening to ambient music can help to help clear the mind 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.
The brain can only accept so many signals at the same time. If we activate enough heat receptors, i.e. via the Far Infrared Heat of the Amethys BioMat, their signals will 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.
Improves Circulation and Bone Health
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. Supports bone growth and preservation of bone density.
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.
Heals Soft Tissue
For new injuries, ice is the best treatment for decreasing the inflammatory response. For existing injuries and chronic inflammation, however, heat is the best treatment. The Amethyst BioMat is uniquely effective because the Far Infrared Rays penetrate deeply and evenly to deliver heat right at the site of the injury, not only superficially at the skin.
Towards the higher settings of the BioMat, a considerable amount of heat is produced creating sauna-like effects. Placing a blanket over top of you can further enhance these effects, it it is important to hydrate and to not overdo it. The body will work hard to shed heat, and therefore a lot of built-up toxins. It is advisable to rinse off afterwards to be fully rid of these toxins.
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. By changing his preferred environment, we can slow them down while at the same time ramping jp our own immune system, and turn the tide of infection more quickly.
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. It improves balance of blood pressure and blood sugar and alkalizes the blood.
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.
