The purpose of this study was to analyze the domestic preliminary researches on the effect of far infrared hyperthermia(far infrared ray is 8 ~ 16μm (micron) which is the most beneficial wavelength for human body as natural state solar energy) on the human body and to identify the subjective meaning of sleep quality by using far infrared hyperthermia which is alternative medicine. When far infrared ray in 8 ~ 14 μm area, which is human skin radiation wavelength and coincides with atmospheric window ray in 7 ~ 14 μm area, penetrates human bodies, it activates the cell tissues by vibrating the cells in human bodies 2,000 times per minute.
This process of cell activity releases waste materials that are harmful substances in cells of human body, promotes blood circulation, strengthens self-defense ability, promotes balance of an autonomic nervous system, contributes to maintain body homeostasis, has thermal effect, pain relief, health recovery, elimination of heavy metals in the body, promotion of sweating and sound sleep as well as generates heat energy.
When the body temperature is lowered, the blood flow slows down and the metabolic function is lowered and these lead to the immunity decrease, low quality of sleep and can develop insomnia. In westernized medical treatment of insomnia, sedative medicine therapy is often used. However patients have a sense of repulsion, because of side effects such as digestive disorders and dependence after taking the medicine.
In this study, it was proved that the far infrared hyperthermia was effective for improvement of the subjective quality of sleep and relieving insomnia and stress by using the warm bed with hyperthermia-applied technology for about 1 hours a day in about 12 weeks.
It is expected that hyperthermia could prevent chronic diseases caused by sleep disorders by improving quality of sleep and immunity, relieving insomnia and stress as using far infrared rays as a part of alternative medicine.
In addition, it will be a basic data to utilize the research results as one aspect of safe and reliable alternative medicine.
