As Sales and Marketing Director for Therasage, I hear from countless individuals who have integrated far infrared therapy into their routine – and have had their lives changed. My latest discussion was with a woman who was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia as a child. The Co- Founder of Sickle Cell Society of BC, Storma Sire has battled pain and nearly her entire life, until she discovered a natural solution.
Sickle cell disease is a disorder that affects a molecule in the red blood cells known as hemoglobin, which is responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body. Sickle cell sufferers have red blood cells that have been distorted to a crescent shape. The “sickled” cells can block blood vessels causing severe pain — this pain is known as sickle cell crisis. Some forms of physical therapy might help relieve the pain of sickle cell crisis, including heat therapy.
Heat therapy can help with the pain management of sickle cell crisis. There are many forms of heat therapy, including baths, whirlpools, heat packs or pads, sitz bath therapy and continuous wave ultrasound. All these forms of heat therapy have little risk of side effects and can help reduce pain in any area of the body. Not only can heat therapy reduce pain by relaxing the joints and muscles, it also can speed up healing and reduce stress.
“Over a year ago, I did research on heat therapy and was looking for a heating pad to help with my pain,” Storma shares with me. “I came across far infrared heat therapy pads, specifically Therasage heating pads. When I tried the pad for the first time, I was blown away. It helped with my pain after only a few short minutes.” Her results are not unlike countless others who have benefited from using various forms of infrared heat to relieve their pain including patients with cancer, bone spurs, thalassemia, back pain, diabetes, and the list goes on.
If you or a loved one are suffering from chronic pain and are looking for natural, effective alternatives – use far infrared heat therapy. There is no other alternative out there that is more effective, relaxing, and therapeutic than this heat. Feeling is believing – try it for yourself.
