Near-Infrared Light

The purpose of near-infrared light is to promote blood circulation, increase metabolism, and improve immunity, which is beneficial to the human body without any harm. It is a non-invasive treatment that does not require contact with the human body. It is painless, non-invasive, safe and reliable, and can be used by infants and young children. There is no ultraviolet or electromagnetic wave radiation, which will not cause problems such as skin darkening. Instead, it promotes collagen proliferation and has whitening effects.
Cancer cells are afraid of heat. After absorbing heat energy, the tumors will shrink or even disappear, which is good news for cancer patients. Daily care through deep penetrating heat of near-infrared hyperthermia can help stimulate blood vessels to produce nitric oxide and inhibit tumor growth. “Hyperthermia” is one of the auxiliary cancer treatment methods, and it is now widely used in Europe, America, Japan, Taiwan and other regions. Hyperthermia combined with “immunotherapy” is considered an effective cancer treatment method: the unique antigen (antigen) possessed by the tumor can be recognized by the immune system; when the antigen is absorbed at the tumor site, the antigen-presenting cells (antigen) -presenting cell) can enter the lymph space and program the lymphocytes to produce a strong immune response. When cytotoxic lymphocytes are produced and increased in large quantities, they will be transported to the tumor site and targeted to kill tumor cells, thus producing a cancer treatment effect. The use of “heat therapy” to assist cancer immunotherapy is supported by more and more medical data. According to “Hyperthermia as an immunotherapy strategy for cancer” published in the British medical journal “Current Opinion in Investigational Drugs”, preclinical and clinical data results show that, Antitumor immune responses improved after adding mild hyperthermia. At high temperatures, the molecular mechanisms responsible for improving the immune response come into operation, including the generation of Hsps, activation of antigen presenting cells, and changes in lymphocyte trafficking. . Hyperthermia can allow heat energy to reach deep tissues directly, raising the body temperature to 38.5 to 40 °C, using high temperature to stimulate the body’s immune function, enhance immune system response, and strengthen cell repair. Continuously increasing the temperature of tumor tissue can destroy the cell wall of the tumor, change the microenvironment of the tumor, inhibit the growth of cancer cells, and even weaken it. When exposed to heat, tumor cells become sensitive and respond to heat shock proteins. When these protein substances reach the tumor cell membrane, the immune system’s “killer cells” are called and attack the tumor, thereby achieving a therapeutic effect. In addition to stimulating the immune response, hyperthermia can also improve the effectiveness of standard cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Chemotherapy or electrotherapy require oxygen to be most effective. However, the microenvironment next to the tumor is mostly hypoxic. Therefore, high-temperature hyperthermia can enhance the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood vessels and effectively shrink the tumor. The heat generated by the local hyperthermia machine can also effectively accelerate the blood circulation and oxygenation of tumors, allowing chemotherapy drugs to be more widely distributed and more easily absorbed by tumor cells. Because heat has made the tumor tissue more sensitive, it can increase the effectiveness of radiation therapy. Near-infrared lamps are very common in Western hospitals, physical therapy, chiropractic, orthopedics, traditional Chinese medicine hospitals, health centers, veterinarians, etc. all over the world.
