Far Infrared Radiation
Radiation: Far Infrared Radiation (5μm to 20μm wavelength)
Far Infrared Radiation for 30 to 40 minutes per session.
There are many causes of chronic kidney disease. The most common cause is diabetes mellitus. Acute renal failure is a rapidly progressive loss of renal function, generally characterized by body fluids disturbances and electrolyte derangement.
It is believed that far infrared radiation of the central nervous system, the endocrine system and the kidneys will help in the management of renal failure and a possible cure.
