Why use the BioMat? In this blog, we have discussed this topic extensively. And today, we want to share an e-mail we received from “corporate” (Richway International in Honolulu, Hawaii). They write:

BioMats are based on the remarkable discovery by Dr. Nobuhiro Yoshimizu, an esteemed oncologist in Japan with extensive experience in cancer treatment, including at the renowned Mayo Clinic in the United States. Upon returning to Japan, he assumed the role of Chief Doctor at the Cyber Knife Cancer Center at Osaka General Hospital, where he treated numerous cancer patients. In his journey, he introduced BioMats into the treatment of over 2,000 cancer patients, leading to a profound revelation.

Dr. Yoshimizu’s groundbreaking work culminated in his book titled “The Fourth Treament for Medical Refugees,” with a focus on far infrared thermal therapy. Through his hands-on experience, he discovered the pivotal role played by heat shock protein (HSP) and highlighted one of the primary  reasons for using bio-mats: to stimulate the generation of heat shock protein within the body.

Here’s why this discovery is so significant: increased levels of HSP lead to heightened activity of T-cells, which play a remarkable role in eliminating cancer cells.

More about heat shock proteins…

In essence, heat shock proteins are a group of proteins produced by cells in response to various stressors, including elevated temperatures (heat shock), toxins, infection, inflammation, and other celleular stresses. These proteins are the unsung heroes of our body’s defense system, and they perform a wide range of essential functions:

  1. Protein folding – HSPs help prevent the accumulation of damaged proteins, safeguarding cellular function and health.
  2. Cellular repair – they aid in repairing damaged proteins and preventing the aggregation of misfolded proteins, allowing cells to recover from stress-induced damage.
  3. Protection against stress – HSPs shield cells from damage caused by stressors such as heat, oxidative stress and toxins, ensuring stability and preventing cell death under challenging conditions.
  4. Immune response – acting as chaperones for antigens, HSPs assist in presenting them to the immune system, influencing the body’s response to infections and cancer.
  5. Cell signaling – HSPs also play a role in cellular signaling pathways, impacting various cellular processes ad responses to stress.

In conclusion, heat shock proteins are integral for cell survival and maintaining cellular balance under adverse conditions. They hold immense promise in research related to cell biology, protein folding, and various disease, including cancer and neurodegenerative disorders.”

While we are not medical professionals and we do not give medical advice, we find this new development by Dr. Nobuhiro Yoshimizu inspiring and enlightening. As more information becomes available, we will continue to share its relevance to you and/or your BioMat purchase. If, in the meantime you have questions, please reach out at [email protected].
