Effects of Tourmaline on the human body
Tourmaline crystals produce electricity of 0.06mA, which is compatible with the human body.
Far infrared energy that Tourmaline naturally emits causes a resonance in the body at the same frequency as water. All matter is made up of uniquely-arranged electrons and molecules, moving in unison. When molecules are illuminated with electromagnetic radiation of the same intrinsic vibration frequency as the substance itself, the electromagnetic wave energy is absorbed and the amplitude of that substance’s molecular vibration is increased. That’s why when FIR, having the same vibration frequency, illuminates a substance, that substance will filter out the FIR and experience a “resonance absorption.” This is a process known as “resonance-absorption to heat-generation” with the aid of FIR.
Comfortable temperatures are actually synonymous with a comfortable energy frequency or “wavelength.” That wavelength happens to be 8 to 14 microns – the same as FIR. The seventy five percent of our bodies composed of water, protein, fat and other substances – all must function properly to sustain life. When living things absorb FIR of 8 to 14 micron wavelength, they experience resonance absorption. The vibrating movement of FIR (approximately 2000 times per minute), in living tissue produces an increase in energy which in turn activates cells and enhances metabolism.
Tourmaline also helps improve circulation, relieves stress, increases mental alertness and strengthens the immune system function (Niwa Institute for Immunology, Japan. Int J. Biometeorol 1993 Sep; 37(3) 133-8).
