The attraction of light

Light and heat important for our health


As human beings we love light, sunshine and colors.We strive towards the light and, in this regard, resemble plants, trees,blossoms and flowers, which also search out the light.

Light means warmth and vitality.Anyone who forgets how important light, heat and a relatively constant body temperature (+/- 1°) are for our state of health disregards a basic principle of human life and a cornerstone of well-being and vitality.For some indigenous peoples, the sun as the bringer of light is first among the worshiped deities, and this is not a mere coincidence.The creator or creation energy relies on the sun, which reminds us how important light and heat are for our state of health. You may have already heard about UV light and vitamin D production within the skin.

There is another kind of solar radiation that is equally important: infrared radiation and the heat that it provides.Supporting the body with healing infrared radiation through the use of infrared saunas or infrared mats can be even more important if we live in northern latitudes with less exposure to the sun.




For chronic low temperature, it is not sufficient to sit in front of an infrared lamp or use an infrared sauna once a week. Daily heat applications with an infrared mat can provide an adequate solution.Many chronically cold people profit greatly from sleeping on infrared mats for several months or even years as a daily or nightly “therapy”.“Health sleep” receives new significance as an important treatment method.

Too low body temperatures that are lasting many years or even decades damages the bodies and the metabolism, which then requires long-term support with healing infrared heat in order to bring the entire organism back to a healthy state.The importance of heat and restoring vitality as well as eliminating the causes of fatal coldness are addressed in the following chapter from which you will hopefully draw the correct conclusions for your own life.Strength, vitality and a stable immune system will be your reward.
