Believe it or not, human biology requires these essential wavelengths — red and infrared — to function properly and optimally.
Modern life lacks these frequencies! But can you intentionally supplement them for optimal health?
4 Sources of InfraRED
Sunlight is extremely rich in red and infrared light. At solar noon, sunlight is roughly 68% red & infrared.
In the morning, blue and UV are filtered out — leaving rich red and infrared light to reach the earth.
Morning Sunlight is Mostly Infrared
Sunlight is always at least 50% infrared — in all seasons, all climates, all latitudes.
There Are 3 Types of Infrared Light
Understanding this will help you decide which type sauna you prefer, which light bulbs you’ll choose.
The two most healing spectrums of light are: 1) red — and its close neighbor — 2) near-infrared.
It’s no coincidence that research indicates these two frequencies are the most restorative, seeing that their wavelengths are right next to each other.
What About Far-Infrared?
Far-infrared (FIR), by contrast, is a very long wavelength. It is actually close to the microwave spectrum of light. As we’ll see, FIR is not as restorative for health, and may not be as safe in isolation.
