Far Infrared Rays and Immune System Health

The life light wave (wavelength 6.14μm) in the far infrared is the electromagnetic wave that can be most received by the human skin thermoreceptors. Among them, the 9.3μm wavelength electromagnetic wave is the most responsive to the human body, and it is also the band with the highest absorption rate. In nature’s solar spectrum, visible light and infrared light account for 95% of the energy. Among them, the life light wave band has a relatively long wavelength and low heat, which is a non-thermal healthy light wave.

Far infrared rays of the human body

Among the electromagnetic wave bands of infrared radiation, only far infrared rays can be efficiently received by the thermal receptors in the human skin, and the energy is transferred in the form of heat. If we want to make an appropriate model of the mechanism of electromagnetic wave absorption, radiation and thermal response between the human body and far infrared rays, we must understand the following basic physical concepts and definitions.

  • Black body and black-body radiation
  • Planck spectrum (or Planck distribution)
  • Wien’s displacement law
  • Radiation Law (Stefan-Boltzmann Radiation Law)

Black body and black-body radiation:

A black body is an ideal object assumed in physics. It can absorb all external electromagnetic radiation, and has a stronger electromagnetic radiation ability than all other objects at the same temperature. The limit of electromagnetic radiation capability is called black-body radiation. The formal physical definition is “the electromagnetic radiation emitted by a black body in a thermodynamic equilibrium state depends on the temperature of the black body.” Temperature can be used to describe the interaction between light and matter.

Planck spectrum (Planck distribution):

Black-body radiation has continuous radiation frequency vs. intensity, which describes the spectrum produced by this frequency on intensity changes, which we call the Planck spectrum. When the temperature value is higher, the energy radiation peak of the characteristic frequency shifts to the shorter wavelength direction, as known in the figure below.

Wien’s Displacement Law:

The characteristic that the peak energy of a black body moves with temperature. The peak radiant energy of humans and water falls within the range of far infrared (300k = 27°C, about 9.3 μm).

Radiation Law (Stefan-Boltzmann Radiation Law):

The energy of radiation is proportional to the fourth division of temperature. For every 10% increase in temperature, the radiated energy increases by approximately 46%. And because the energy of radiation is inversely proportional to the fourth power of the wavelength of light, the highest energy wavelength of light is inversely proportional to temperature, which can be written as the following formula.

λmax = 2897/T(μm)

The human body temperature is calculated according to 36.5°C (that is, 309.5K), and it can be calculated that λmax =9.36 μm

Resonance absorption of far infrared:

Molecular vibration and frequency:

A molecule is composed of more than two atoms. Under the action of heat energy, the atoms will have a relative displacement between each other, which is called molecular vibration. With the atomic mass of the constituent molecules, the molecules have different vibration frequencies. Under this frequency, if the energy given is also the same frequency, the molecular vibration frequency generated by the energy has not changed (that is, the energy of the molecular vibration has not changed), but the amplitude of the molecular vibration has increased. The energy that enters is absorbed by the molecules, and this phenomenon of absorption is called resonance absorption.

Suitable for the research and development of far infrared materials for the human body:

The stacking characteristics of inorganic material crystals or Nano-inorganic materials can find out the generation mechanism of far infrared rays. At the same time, use a variety of inorganic materials to produce far infrared materials with high emissivity. With the high far infrared radioactive energy material, we will develop applications related to the interaction of organisms and water molecules.

Fertility light:

The structure of the human body is that the higher the energy given, the vibration frequency remains the same, which means that the given energy has been absorbed by the “resonance absorption”. The vast majority of biological and organic substances in nature contain macromolecular carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen atoms, and the wavelengths of their absorption spectra are mostly distributed between 25 μm and 2.5 μm. Among these wavelengths, the wavelengths near the human body’s maximum absorption wavelength of 9.36 μm (8-12 μm or 6-14 μm) are called life waves. The energy of this range of wavelengths can efficiently provide energy for the human body and various organisms to carry out biochemical activities, so it is also called fertility light.

The role of far infrared rays and water molecules:

It is not only the phenomenon that the organic polymer substances in the living body can absorb by resonate with far infrared rays, but also account for up to 70% of the water in the human body, which will also produce a similar resonant absorption effect. Water is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Its resonance spectrum includes these three modes:

  1. Asymmetric Stretching absorption wavelength: wavenumber 3760, wavelength 2.66μm
  2. Symmetric Stretching absorption wavelength: wavenumber 3650, wavelength 2.74μm
  3. Scissoring absorption wavelength: wavenumber 1595, wavelength 6.27μm

Therefore, far infrared rays are also acceptable resonance energy for water molecules, which produces the effect of activation and condensation of water molecules into small molecules, which is also called “living water” or “small molecule water.” This far infrared water has an increased ability to participate in biochemical effects, and at the same time enhances the biological body’s resonance absorption of polymers and water. In this way, the body’s organs can get extra energy and promote growth.

The benefits of water to human health:

Lubricate (eyes), regulate temperature, help convert food to energy, participate in the digestive process, and benefit skin health.

Atmospheric window and the absorption of far infrared rays:

The absorption spectrum of various gas molecules in the atmosphere, especially water vapor and carbon dioxide, will also affect the penetration of far infrared rays. However, water at 2.7μm and 6.3μm, and carbon dioxide at 14.6μm will have strong far infrared absorption; therefore, if we observe the far infrared absorption spectrum of the atmosphere, we find that it is at 8μm to 14μm, there is an obvious atmospheric window (see the figure below), so that “the far infrared rays in this wavelength range are relatively weakly absorbed through the air”, which causes the human body to naturally absorb the life light waves in the environment in the atmosphere.
