Far Infrared: An Opioid Alternative

By Gladiator Therapeutics

January 14, 2019

When you experience pain, your first thought is usually “how can I make this stop?” In many cases, pain is a result of something else that needs to be addressed within the body. Pain is a common aspect of our lives. Whether you have a chronic condition, or you have sustained an injury, the body uses pain as a way to alert you that something is not as it should be. When the body experiences pain, it can result in decreased functionality.

However, there is still a lot of debate within the medical community about whether the pain is a physical symptom or a neurological symptom. In simpler terms, is pain primarily a physical sensation or does it originate in the brain? This question has been an important factor behind the country’s growing opioid epidemic.

So, what are opioids?

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, opioids are a class of drugs that include heroin, synthetic opioids such as fentanyl, and prescription painkillers, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, and morphine, just to name a few. In the 1990s, pharmaceutical companies had informed the medical community that patients would not become addicted to opioid pain relievers. As a result, healthcare providers began prescribing them at greater rates. This has led to more people misusing of opioids, leading to higher overdoses across the country.

A Drug-Free Alternative

Across the United States, the opioid crisis is at epidemic levels, causing many wanting a different, safer option. When it comes to pain management, there are plenty of options available; but with negative side effects, many Americans would rather go for the quick fix. So, what if there was quicker, much safer, alternative? With the Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Device, that option is readily available!

Far Infrared Light Therapy Can Help Reduce Inflammation

Pain is a symptom of inflammation — a natural part of the body’s defense system against infection. When inflammation is causes damage to the body’s tissue, it can restrict blood flow to the parts of the body that need vital nutrients and fresh oxygen, causing pain. But there is a way to improve the circulation, decrease inflammation, and managing your pain.

Far infrared light is a therapeutic form of the electromagnetic spectrum. It emits photons which are absorbed into your body where it’s converted into heat. If there is something to capture this heat and send it back into the body, it can energize and charge your body’s molecules.

And that’s what Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Device does. It captures these photons, sending them back into the body. This causes the water clusters in the blood to vibrate and break apart, increasing the blood flow and decreasing the inflammation.
