Effects of Infrared Deep Heat on Rheumatoid Arthritis
A case study reported in Sweden worked with a 70-year-old man who had rheumatoid arthritis secondary to acute rheumatic fever. He had reached his toxic limit of gold injections and his Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) was still 125. After using an infrared deep heat system for less than five months, his ESR was down to 11. The rheumatologist worked with a 14-year-old Swedish girl who had difficulty walking downstairs due to knee pain from the age of eight. This therapist told her mother the girl would be in a wheelchair within two years if she didn’t begin gold corticosteroid therapy. After three far infrared treatments, she began to become more agile and subsequently took up folk dancing without the aid of conventional approaches in her recovery. A clinical trial in Japan reported a successful solution for seven out of seven cases of rheumatoid arthritis treated with whole-body far infrared therapy. These case studies and clinical trials indicate that further study is warranted for the use of whole-body far infrared therapy in the care of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. | Source: Research on Far Infrared Rays by Dr. Aaron M.
