The infrared heat helps to make the mitochondria* more powerful and detoxify heavy metals* in our body. Mitochondria are especially sensitive to heavy metals and toxic substances. An additional benefit of infrared besides detoxification is that infrared light converts the water in your body into EZ water*, which mitochondria need to function optimally.
What are mitochondria?
The mitochondria in your cells are your power plants that produce energy. Mitochondria in a cell look like tiny beans. Every cell in your body contains mitochondria; this can range from 10,000 to as many as 5,000 mitochondria per cell.
What are heavy metals in our bodies?
Unfortunately, we are dealing with many harmful/heavy metals that affect our health system. We ingest these heavy metals through such things as food, microwaves, packaging materials, non-natural cosmetics, air, etc. Heavy metals that we ingest because of this and are therefore harmful to our health are; cadmium, aluminum, mercury, lead, arsenic, nickel.
What is EZ-water?
Prof. Gerald Pollack, professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Washington and editor of the scientific journal Water,discovered that the water in our cells is a very different type of water than the water in nature that we know as H2O. He lists this water in our body exclusion zone or EZ water.
This is a fourth form of water besides liquid, water vapor and solid (ice). We could think of EZ water as water in the form of gel. The water we drink, H2O, is converted in our bodies into this body’s own form of water and absorbed into your cells. If cells do not contain enough EZ water, they dry out and function less well. This EZ water is needed for our mitochondria to function optimally. The mitochondria become more powerful with plenty of EZ water in your body.
