Love, Light and Comfort of a BioMat

Published on February 21, 2014

Description: Healing With Light: The Future of Medicine? (Pt. I) 

Plants love to turn toward the light, they stretch for it, and so do we. Light, heat, color, warmth, energy, electrons, bio-photons, electricity, electromagnetism all interact with the water that is in us. In fact, not only do these forces interact with us they are us.

We not only receive energy from the universe but we give it back reradiating out who we are to the people around us and to the environment in general. We are all walking energy fields interacting with everyone around us as well as with nature—one gigantic electromagnetic web of existence of which we are all a part.

On the simplest level we are all generators of far-infrared energy. Like everything that is warm we radiate out to each other quite intensely when we are cuddling in bed. We literally warm each other with our love light, which includes the warmth of far-infrared energies.

”It seems clear that light is the most important environmental input, after food, in controlling bodily function,” reported Richard J. Wurtman, a nutritionist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Several experiments have shown that different colors affect blood pressure, pulse and respiration rates as well as brain activity and biorhythms. As a result, colors are now used in the treatment of a variety of diseases.

BioMats, which are far-infrared mats that you can use during the day or sleep on at night. They will do more to keep the doctor away than just about anything and will come in very handy when you or your children have the flu. Instead of antibiotics, which turned out in the end to be a very bad medical idea, we use light and heat to urge the immune system to greater strength and activity.

In every culture and in every medical tradition
before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.

Infrared light will alleviate pain, detoxify the body, strengthen cardiovascular system and devitalize and clear pathogens, fungus, mold, bacteria, germs, etc. from the body. It will regenerate tissue & bone, improve symptoms of most diseases by directly empowering the body’s immune system.

Infrared therapy produces potent antioxidants, neurotransmitters and artery wall relaxers. Infrared therapy helps regulate muscle tone of the arteries and prevents arteriosclerosis and is anti-inflammatory preventing injury to vessel walls and normalizing blood pressure in the process.

The BioMat is a wonderfully safe and easy-to-use dynamic means of achieving ever-accelerating levels of health, wellness and more efficient, natural regeneration and rejuvenation. It provides "noticeable" and "comprehensive" health benefits to make your body feel well and be the best it can be.

    the problem I have with the Biomat is that the part of my body that is in direct contact with the mat gets so much hotter than the rest of my body – it doesn’t produce an overall increase in body temp

  • Lisa

    I understand that the Biomat produces Far-Infrared light rays. Is there any difference between using this mat and using an FIR sauna? Do both produce the same results?

    • Yes, Lisa,

      The FIR rays penetrate more deeply into the tissues from the BioMat than they do with sauna. Penetration with BioMat is about 6 inches and with sauna is about 3……so BioMat has a greater effect mainly due to the enhancement from the amethyst crystals.

    I just received a Richway BIOMAT, and used it immediately for 2 hours- it feels amazing for sure, took a break and used it again for another hour or so and feel asleep on it 🙂 What I am wondering for now is 2 things-
    1- How long and at what setting do I use the BIOMAT to raise my body temp 1 degree? and then how does one maintain that raised temperature?
    2- I read in the enclosed literature that “a healing response” could be expected- How long does this normally last? I know I have a Candida infection that I am battling, along with Hypothyroidism, along with mild RA, compromised Immune function. THIS is why I bought it, but wondering how long to get past the “healing response”?
    Hoping the BIOMAT is the answer to my prayers….
    Thank you!!

    • Dear AmmaNico,

      Core body temperature can be raised after a few minutes on the BioMat even at low settings. Please see the booklet that comes with the BioMat as it has a chart that explains this. The effects can last for 8 hours or more and regular use will sustain this.
      Detoxification can occur but will be different for each person depending on their level of toxicity. Some will notice this right away and it may pass quickly while for others it may last longer. Some may notice a temporary change of mood which indicates detoxification is taking place.
      I’m glad you received yours and hope it will assist in resolving your issues. Please note that there are additional things on Dr. Sircus protocol that may also help you, specifically magnesium oil, CBD oils and sodium bicarbonate.

    I can only add one thing to this article, namely that the feeling of warmth from improved circulation from spending several hours on the Bio-Mat, prior to going to sleep in my regular bed, creates a pleasant feeling of well-being that helps me sleep better. It’s expensive, yes, but I’d rather pay now, for better health, than pay later with degenerative diseases.

  • Breathdancing

    I’m interested in the biomat, but I have some concerns and queries. I’m disabled with several chronic health conditions, including multiple chemical Sensitivities (MCS). I cannot tolerate most scents, especially from plastics and chemicals. I understand that the biomat is made of several materials. Are there any odors from the mat? Any outgassing? Any reports from folks who have MCS who used the mat?

    • Happy Camper

      I noticed NO outgassing or odors from my set-up at any point, and I am also extremely sensitive to chemicals, odors, etc… Also, the Negative-Ion state (lowest setting/no heat) does a nice job of clearing out the air of an average bedroom with the door closed, as well as helping my mood. I’ve had my Biomat now for 1.5 years, and it has been a true pain lifesaver in absence of Western Medicine relief. Hope this helps someone on the fence about getting a mat, it certainly was an expensive risk. For once a gamble paid off!
