Amethyst Bio Mat

Amethyst Bio Mat

Amethyst Bio Mat
BioMat is a mat that is used for healing, combining far infrared rays, negative ion therapy and the superconducting properties of pure amethyst that work together to treat a wide variety of issues and ailments.

The healing properties of Amethyst have been known for centuries by ancient scientists and healers. Now modern science has confirmed the highly conductive properties of this remarkable mineral. Amethyst crystals offer consistent delivery of far infrared light waves.

Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible tiny molecules proven to increase our production of serotonin, a mood chemical that alleviates depression, relieves stress, gives us more daytime energy, and alleviates allergies. Negative ions naturally occur around mountains, waterfalls and beaches, create a feeling of wellbeing.

Because the BioMat's infrared rays penetrate deeply into the body, it addresses inbalances on the cellular level. Its targeted infrared heat therapy increases delivery of oxygen-rich blood to the muscles and has helped people deal with everything from immune system issues to inflammation to muscle pain.

When used at the high setting (149-158°F), the BioMat delivers all of the benefits of the traditional sauna. The intense heat generated by the BioMat mimics the heat of the sauna, opening pores, increasing circulation and flushing away impurities.

The BioMat is made of healthy materials. When you use a Biomat, you lie on pure silicone urethane, beneath which a total of 16 additional unique, protective layers are present, including tumbled amethyst, silk and cotton.

The BioMat is an FDA Registered Class II Medical Device for pain relief and has passed rigorous safety testing in order to be approved for use in hospitals and clinics.

The are different heat settings that can be used depending on the condition and the goal of the patient.

NO HEAT: This setting allows benefit from negative ion therapy and amethyst conduction without having to use far infrared rays at the same time. This can be used for patients who are extremely sensitive to heat.

95-104°F HEAT: This "green" setting enables negative ion therapy plus gentle, broad-spectrum heat. This setting acts as an aid to encourage deep relaxation, and still for those sensitive to heat.

113-122°F HEAT: This "yellow" setting provides negative ion therapy plus subtle, warming far infrared ray penetration. This setting is ideal for relaxation, and gentle detoxification.

131-140°F HEAT: This "gold" setting provides negative ion therapy plus deep-penetrating warmth to temporarily relieve minor muscle pain, minor joint pain and stiffness, joint paint associated with arthritis, muscle spasms, minor sprains, minor strains, minor muscular back pain; encourage relaxation and address stress and tension by relaxing muscles. This setting also encourages better circulation, as well as detoxification. WE will start this setting for 15 minute intervals , gradually working up to one hour sessions.

149-158°F HEAT: This "red" setting offers maximum far infrared sauna-like treatment. The high-heat settings are ideal for relieving minor muscle pain, minor joint pain and stiffness, joint paint associated with arthritis, muscle spasms, minor sprains, minor strains, minor muscular back pain; and relaxing muscles. It is used for detoxification, lyme disease, and various viral infections.

 

The BioMat and Detoxification

The BioMat increases circulation and stimulates the sweat glands by raising body temperature, helping the body release toxins and waste materials, including heavy metals, solvents, unhealthy cholesterol and more... all of this improves the immune system. Simply by resting on the BioMat for a short session of between 15 and 45 minutes, you can dramatically increase your body's natural detox capabilities.

BioMat offers Lyme disease treatment

The BioMat provides a unique type of thermo-therapy to the body. The heat that it delivers can target the spirochetes that cause Lyme disease symptoms and soothe sore joints and muscles.

In addition, the negative ions that the mat gives off can help to cleanse the body and promote immune function, which can assist with energy and overall function in people suffering from Lyme disease. Likewise, the infrared light therapy penetrates deeply into the body, reducing pain and allowing cells to absorb more oxygen and repair themselves faster. This is why the BioMat is a popular treatment for Lyme .

In addition, because it is safe for all ages, you can use the BioMat as a Lyme disease treatment for children.

High heats are imperative when assisting the body to rid itself of bacteria and infections. The body will naturally raise its core temperature, causing night sweats in an effort to kill off unwanted microorganisms, as a protective defense. This will aid in boosting the immune system as well.
