Far Infrared (FIR) Thermal Therapy is being used to treat chronic heart disease and to help reduce inflammation of the heart.
One of the most common heart problems associated with lupus is inflammation of the sac around the heart. This can cause severe pain in the left side of the chest.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients suffer from excess cardiac deaths due to accelerated atherosclerosis. Endothelial dysfunction is a marker of early atherosclerosis.
People with lupus are also more likely to develop plaques that narrow or clog the arteries. This can lead to coronary artery disease. Other complications include heart valve disease and inflammation of the heart muscle.
Far Infrared helps improve cardiovascular function.
Active Systemic Lupus is associated with evidence of increased cardiovascular damage and dysfunction.
