Repeated Far Infrared Thermal Treatment may help prevent hardening and narrowing of the arteries by protecting the body from cell damage and improving function of the cell lining of the arteries (the endothelium). This cellular lining helps the inside of arteries stay toned and smooth, and keeps blood flowing.
The narrowing of the arteries can begin when high blood pressure, smoking, or high cholesterol damage the lining of the arteries. At this stage Cholesterol starts lining the arteries forming the plaque that causes hardening and narrowing.
Plaque can accumulate in the arteries of the Brain (Cerebrovascular disease), the Heart (Coronary artery disease), and the Legs (Peripheral artery disease).
