As far as i can tell, the increase in healing rates using IR light may simply be due to the scar reflex. That is, if it outside the warm zone, scar it, if it's inside, heals it. I am curious to know whether we could eliminate scarring with IR bandanges, or whether this is felt to be a red herring *smile*. I am also curious to know whether we have different frequencies of IR inside the body, for cell to cell communication, or whether it's just our single spectrum, normal temperature.
Re: Do our cells communicate, or just keep each other warm?
