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?
All visible light colors — blue, green, yellow, orange, red — have healing properties.
But red & infrared are the most healing — and the most absent — from modern life.
This page will explore methods of receiving red & infrared light, for the purpose of improving your 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 by the atmosphere — 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.
Infrared has 3 Spectrums
Later, this info 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; their wavelengths are right next to each other.
What About Far-Infrared?
Far-infrared (FIR) is unique. It’s a very long wavelength. Actually pretty close to the microwave spectrum of light. As we’ll see, FIR is less restorative for health — and may not be as safe by itself.
