To begin this article, I want to share a news article that I read on The Strait Times Singapore which I found to be very sad.
The title of the story is “TCM practitioner suspended after treatments caused patient to lose part of leg”.
Apparently a diabetic patient went to a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practitioner in Singapore to get treated for poor sensation in both his feet.
The TCM practitioner, Mr. Lee, 59 used heat lamp therapy on the sole of his patient.
After the treatment, the patient developed blisters on his feet which broke when he tried to walk.
The diabetic man went back to Mr. Lee to get further treatment.
Mr. Lee tried to clean the wounds by applying medication and bandaging his feet.
But since the man has diabetes, his wounds did not heal and after 4 months, his left leg was amputated below the knee.
This is truly very sad story indeed.
The man could have been suffering from numbness or tingling in his fingers, toes, hands, and feet.
Walking can be very painful and the recommended treatment to relieve the pain is low impact exercise and proper diet to reduce blood sugar level.
The idea is to prevent further nerve damage and to increase the blood circulation in the feet.
The treatment of infrared heat lamp can be beneficial because it does help to improve our blood circulation.
However, because the lamp uses electricity to generate heat that emits infrared rays, controlling the intensity of the heat can be challenging.
In the case above, the heat lamp intensity was too much for the patient which caused the blisters.
Effects of far infrared ray (FIR)
What are the effects of far infrared ray treatment for people with diabetes?
Apparently, FIR treatment can produce positive results.
According to Illinois Experts website, it cited a conference paper by Chi-Wen Lung, Yung-Sheng Lin, Yih-Kuen Jan, Yu-Chou Lo, Chien-Liang Chen & Ben-Yi Liau.
The title of the paper is “Effect of Far Infrared Radiation Therapy on Improving Microcirculation of the Diabetic Foot”.
The abstract of the paper stated:
In conclusion, the use of heating pad with far infrared radiation could improve blood flow and autonomic nervous system in diabetics, therefore improving alleviating symptoms of diabetes-related complications.
If you are interested to get a copy of the conference paper, click here.
Scientific research has found that far infrared radiation has a positive effect for people with diabetes.
Since the Aulora garments use Kodenshi fabric technology, the far infrared rays (FIR) emitted from the fiber uses our own body temperature as the heat source.
It is therefore natural and much safer compared to an electric powered heat lamp.
If the diabetic man in Singapore from The Strait Times news report have known of the Aulora Pants and Aulora Socks with Kodenshi, he could have gotten relieve for his feet numbness without having to go through his ordeal which led to his leg amputation.
If you know of anyone who is looking for something to improve his or her wellbeing, probably you can recommend the Aulora Pants and socks.
