Far Infrared Ray Induces Intracellular Generation of Nitric Oxide
Nitric oxide was named “Molecule of the Year” in 1992 by the journal “Science”, but it took another 6 years for those responsible for the major discoveries surrounding it to win the Nobel Prize. Three US scientists—Robert F. Furchgott, PhD, Louis J. Ignarro, PhD, and Ferid Murad, MD, PhD—will receive the 1998 Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine on December 10, 1998, in Stockholm, Sweden. The discovery of nitric oxide’s signaling role in the cardiovascular and nervous systems is now nearly 20 years old, but its clinical use is only beginning. Dr Furchgott, a distinguished professor of pharmacology at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Brooklyn, began the studies that led to the identification of nitric oxide as a biological agent in 1980. At that time, he was trying to reconcile the contradictory effects drugs had on blood vessels. He concluded that endothelial cells produce an unknown signal molecule that makes vascular smooth muscle cells relax. He called the signal molecule EDRF, or endothelium-derived relaxing factor. In unrelated experiments, Dr Murad, now chairman of the integrative biology department at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, was analyzing how nitroglycerin works. In 1977, while at the University of Virginia, he found that nitrates release nitric oxide, which relaxes smooth muscle cells, resulting in vasodilatation. He was fascinated that the colorless, odorless gas could act as a signaling molecule. Dr Ignarro, now a professor of pharmacology at UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles, California, through a series of analyses concluded in 1986 that EDRF was identical to nitric oxide. His work, done independently and together with that of Dr Furchgott, prompted an increase in research activities in many areas of the world. What the Nobel Prize recognized was the scientists’ dogged efforts to prove that nitric oxide, an endogenous gas and also a free radical, could have this kind of crucial biological effect. Research has proven the crucial role the gas plays in such fundamental biological processes as regulation of blood pressure, functioning and malfunctioning of the immune system, and activation of mechanisms in the central nervous system affecting everything from gastric motility to memory to behavior. Long known only as an air pollutant, nitric oxide and its related enzymes could one day provide the basis for the development of drugs that could treat everything from Alzheimer’s disease to high blood pressure. Its inhibition could play a role in treatment of sepsis and dangerous hypotension, and the ability to increase its activity might lead to a treatment for hypertension.
“NOBEL PRIZE IN MEDICINE AWARD WINNERS MURAD, FURCHGOTT & IGNARRO FOUND THAT NITRIC OXIDE GAS IS PRODUCED BY FAR INFRARED RAYS”
FIR are among the rays coming from the sun and the FIR waves are the safest and the most beneficial.
There is a vast body of research data accumulating on FIR, with much ongoing scientific investigation being conducted. Results of these investigations show many hopeful and efficacious clinical improvements in patients receiving FIR treatments of various types.
A book entitled: “The Scientific Basis and Therapeutic Benefits of Far Infrared Therapy”, written by Japanese medical doctor, Dr. Toshio Yamazaki, is certainly one excellent resource for citing further possible clinical advantages of using FIR.
FIR penetrates four or five centimeters into the dermis, from muscles into blood vessels, lymphatic glands and nerves.
The FIR whose wavelength falls between 4 to 50 microns are also commonly called Biogenetic rays. Biogenetic rays have been shown to promote the healing and growth of living cells especially in plants, animals and human beings.
FIR has the ability to remove toxins in the body, which are often at the core of many health problems. The build-up of toxins in a healthy body could block the normal blood circulation and impair the cellular energy
FIR can have beneficial results in a variety of illnesses because penetrates four or five centimeters into the dermis, from muscles into blood vessels, lymphatic glands and nerves.
The FIR application technology make Far Infrared Rays penetrate through human tissue, activate Enzymes in the body to create Nitric Oxide.
These rays penetrate into the body and reaching the suffering organs FIR are able to separate the water molecules that bind toxins or other substances harmful to the body. The action of molecular scission occurs through the action of far infrared rays that make ions vibrate, breaking the bond of the atoms of the water.
The vibration of the ions of the water launch also enzymes, known as Synthetase and launch an amino acid of Arginine and Citrulline that activate the production of Nitric Oxide.
When 4 to 16 micron FIR rays are applied, the water begins to vibrate breaking the ion bonds of the atoms held together by the water molecules.
When toxic gases such as carbon dioxide & sulfur dioxide or toxic substances such as lead or mercury meet large water molecules, they are encapsulated by clusters of water in the body.
When these toxins accumulate, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. However, when 7 to 14 micron FIR rays are applied, the water begins to vibrate breaking the ion bonds of the atoms held together by the water molecules. As the breakdown of the bond occurs, the encapsulated gases and other toxic substances are released.
FIR has such beneficial results in a variety of illnesses is its ability to remove toxins, which happen to be the core of many health problems.
When you apply FIR technology, many researchers reported the healing results from the production of nitric oxide by the hemoglobin due to the reaction of the photons of the FIR on the enzymes, which produce the nitric oxide gas.
WHAT IS NITRIC OXIDE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
NO is one of the few gaseous signaling molecules known and is additionally exceptional due to the fact that it is a radical gas. It is a key vertebrate biological messenger, playing a role in a variety of biological processes. It is a known bio product in almost all type of organisms, ranging from bacteria to plants, fungi, and animal cells.
Nitric oxide, known as the “endothelium-derived relaxing factor”, or ‘EDRF’, is biosynthesized endogenously from L-arginine, and NADPH by various nitric oxide synthase nitric oxide synthase (NOS) enzymes. The endothelium (inner lining) of blood vessel uses nitric oxide to signal the surrounding smooth muscles to relax, thus resulting in vasodilation and increasing blood flow. Nitric oxide is highly reactive (having a lifetime of a few seconds), yet diffuses freely across membranes. These attributes make nitric oxide ideal for a transient paracine (between adjacent cells) and autocrine (within a single cell) signaling molecule.
There have been over 60,000 studies done on nitric oxide in the last 20 years Nitric oxide and heart disease Nitric oxide has gotten the most attention due to its cardiovascular benefits
The interior surface (endothelium) of your arteries produces nitric oxide. When plaque builds up in your arteries, called atherosclerosis, you reduce your capacity to produce nitric oxide and we are able to activate the production of nitric oxide, naturally, without assumption of drugs.
Nitric oxide is a tiny molecule. It is a gas, but dissolves in the fluids in and around cells. It is a free radical (sometimes denoted •NO to show that it has an unpaired electron, which makes it react very readily with other molecules).
Cells of the immune system use NO to kill invading bacteria. In septicaemia (blood poisoning), bacteria circulate in large numbers in the blood, and, in response, if much NO is produced, this causes the blood vessels to relax.
