What is the Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket?
The Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket uses far infrared technology to improve blood circulation and safely reduce inflammation and pain.
By improving the body’s circulation, the Gladiator Blanket provides relief from symptoms associated with chronic muscle and nerve pain and from inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Better blood flow can also speed the healing of wounds and prevent or eliminate general aches and pains. Indeed, when the circulatory system is running efficiently, the benefits extend beyond physical health to mental health by improving sleep and reducing stress.
The Gladiator Blanket is simple to use, portable, and requires no power source. It emits no heat and has no known side effects. It’s safe, effective, and accessible for anyone seeking pain relief, or pain prevention.
What is far infrared?
The circulatory boost comes from patented ceramics embedded in hypoallergenic silicone rubber. These ceramics are comprised of nine rare earth minerals and emit far infrared waves.
Infrared is a form of electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation is simply energy that is all around us and it takes many forms: It’s in the radio waves that bring you the traffic report in the morning. It’s in the microwaves that power calls and texts from your phone. It’s in the sunlight outside. It’s in the color of everything you see around you. It’s in the X-ray you get when you break a bone.
In short, electromagnetic radiation spans a huge range. It’s generally divided into seven regions called the electromagnetic spectrum. At one end are radio waves. Radio waves have the lowest frequency and longest wavelengths of all radiation on the spectrum, which means that radio waves are a low energy, non-ionizing form of radiation.
Non-ionizing essentially means that radio waves don’t have enough energy to damage human cells.
At the other end of the spectrum are gamma rays. Among other things, gamma rays are used to treat cancerous cells. They have the highest frequency and shortest wavelength of all the forms of radiation, and therefore, pack the most energy. They are considered an ionizing form of radiation because they can alter and damage our cells (which is why they’re used in cancer treatment).
The entire electromagnetic spectrum, from lowest to highest energy is: radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet waves, X-rays, and gamma rays.
Infrared lies between microwaves and visible light and is a non-ionizing, and therefore non-destructive, form of energy. All humans emit infrared waves, and we do it in the form of heat. In fact, pretty much everything on earth emits some type of heat energy, whether it’s living or nonliving. Ants. Trees. Rocks. Ice. Your footprints.
Infrared is invisible to the naked eye, but technology like night vision cameras and glasses can reveal it in the form of images.
Infrared has a number of uses across a range of fields including the military, law enforcement, industry, science, and medicine. Astronomers use it to see through gases and dust and observe celestial bodies in space. Companies use it for things like wireless communication and remote temperature sensing. Medical professionals use it to help patients with conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.
Infrared is similar to visible light in that it exists as a range. The colors in the visible light spectrum–red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet–all range in frequency and wavelength, and therefore, in energy (red has the least, violet has the most).
The same goes for infrared. Basically, the infrared spectrum ranges from near infrared to mid-infrared to far infrared. Each division has a specific use. For example, the saunas that have been shown to help those patients with rheumatoid arthritis operate within the wavelength and frequency specific to near infrared. “Heat-seeking” missiles used by the military target the mid-infrared range.
The ceramics in the Gladiator Blanket responsible for improving circulation operate in the far infrared range. Far infrared is the lowest frequency, longest wavelength portion of the Infrared spectrum, and therefore, the portion of the spectrum with the lowest energy. Which means that, unlike near infrared which emits its energy in the form of heat, far infrared does not emit heat. Instead, far infrared emits energy in the form of photons. Photons are basically particles that travel in waves at the speed at light. Think of this photon energy as a “cold heat.”
It is this energy, this cold heat, that interacts with the body to improve your circulation.
How does far infrared improve circulation?
The patented ceramics in the Gladiator Blanket are a blend of rare earth minerals that are specially shaped then baked at a specific temperature. As they bake, each ceramic forms an internal lattice. The ceramics are then embedded in a hypoallergenic silicone rubber blanket.
When the blanket is placed on a specific body part like the lower back or abdomen, it begins to absorb the heat given off by the body. That heat, called ambient heat, travels through the ceramics’ lattice. There, it’s converted into far infrared energy, or photons. Those photons are then redirected back to the body.
As the photons penetrate the body they interact with plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of the blood that does a lot of important work: It carries red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and dissolved oxygen. It transports nutrients to nourish and repair cells. It carries away waste products.
There are also water clusters in plasma. These clusters are essentially groups of molecules that have bonded together, and they aren’t bad, but the smaller each cluster, the more mobile the plasma. The more mobile the plasma, the faster the blood can move throughout the body and perform its vital functions.
The photons emitted from the ceramics help break up these clusters. The photons cause the clusters to vibrate, and break apart.
And that is why far infrared and the Gladiator Blanket has such a profound effect on health and well-being. It essentially clears the way for better blood flow.
Good circulation is synonymous with good health. Blood carries numerous vital substances like sugar, proteins, salts, vitamins, minerals, wastes, hormones, germ-fighting chemicals, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. Reducing water cluster sizes helps cells more efficiently get what they need, and eliminate what they don’t.
The benefits to enhanced blood circulation are many: Reduced pain, stiffness, and inflammation. Increased energy levels. Enhanced immunity. Faster metabolism. Decreased stress. And perhaps the most important benefit: Improved quality of life.
Who benefits from the Gladiator Blanket?
The Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket can help anyone. It’s for athletes looking to recover faster. It’s for those plagued with chronic muscle, joint, or nerve pain. It’s for those who struggle with insomnia. It is especially for those living with inflammatory diseases. If you suffer from conditions such as Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, or osteoarthritis, the Gladiator Blanket can reduce flare-ups and pain.
The Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared Blanket is technology based on science. It’s non-intrusive, there are no known side effects, and since it emits no heat, you won’t risk damaging muscle tissue. You don’t need a power source, which means you can take it anywhere and use it anytime over any part of your body.
Pain does not have to be a constant. It does not have to be a given. It is our privilege to offer an option that can give millions of people the relief they deserve.
