Dr. Bourke FIRT or a Pill?
Submitted by Dr. Daryl Bourke
I have been in practice for 30 years but while we may live longer, there is more chronic illness now then there when I first started my practice. I started using the new generation of therapy called, Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.) about 7 years ago after reading about research conducted in Europe and Japan. Patients with chronic illness like Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Pain Syndromes, Detoxification, Weight loss, Suppressed Immune Systems have shown significant improve in these conditions after using Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.), where other therapies were ineffective or had limited results.
Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.) research studies have documented the following physiological changes:
- Detoxification of sub-cutaneous tissue toxins
- Increased energy levels
- Decreased pain through endorphin release
- Reduction of inflammation in the musculoskeletal tissue
- Increased circulation in chronic injuries
- Increased immune function
- Increased metabolic rate
- Improved cardiac function
- Weight loss
(F.I.R.S.T.) can also improve the health of patients who are asymptomatic (no visible symptoms). Conventional medical has unfortunately been unable to treat with success chronically ill patients with conditions like Fibromyalgia, Chronic Lyme's Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Degenerative Joint and muscle pain syndromes etc. Through the use of pharmaceutical symptom suppression we see the majority of patients being treated for the symptom with a drug instead of fixing the root problem. I see them every day in practice, the majority are still convinced by the mass media that the magic pharmaceutical cure is just around the corner, well that's unlikely.
Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.) has been clinically proven to be a safe effective treatment of chronic degenerative illnesses.
