The Amethyst Biomat has an Amethyst layer for transferring natural infrared waves, TOCA (Tourmaline) layer for natural negative ions, carbon fibre and copper fabric layers for Electromagnetic interception, peach and grapeseed fibre layer for heat preservation, and 12 other layers. Gemstone therapists say that the amethyst has a sobering and cleansing effect. Amethyst has also been said to quell excessive stomach acid and, according to Hildegard von Bingen, served to combat insect bites and beautify the skin. But the amethyst not only had a firm niche in medicine; it was also esteemed as a stone of friendship. And since it was thought to put the wearer in a chaste frame of mind and symbolise trust and piety, the amethyst came to occupy a very prominent position in the ornaments of the Catholic clergy over the centuries. It has also been believed that the amethyst offers protection against drunkenness – for the Greek words ‘amethystos’ mean ‘not intoxicated’ in translation.

 It is also widely known that Amethyst is a powerful mineral and gemstone. It is the purple variety of the mineral Quartz, and its most valuable and prized variety. Crystal healing is an alternative medical technique in which crystals and other stones are used to cure ailments and protect against disease. Proponents of this technique believe that crystals act as conduits for healing allowing positive, healing energy to flow into the body as negative, disease-causing energy flows out. But despite the fact that crystal healing has seen an upsurge in popularity in recent years, this alternative treatment is not popular with most medical doctors and scientists, many of whom refer to crystal healing as a pseudoscience. Scientifically speaking, there is no evidence that crystal healing can be used to cure diseases, because diseases have never been found to be the result of a so-called energy flow in the body. Furthermore, no scientific studies have shown that crystals and gems can be differentiated by chemical composition or colour to treat a particular ailment.

The philosophy of modern crystal healing is based on traditional concepts borrowed from Asian cultures, most notably the Chinese concept of life-energy (chi or qi) and the Hindu or Buddhist concept of chakras, which are vortices of this life-energy, said to connect the physical and supernatural elements of the body. Some medical doctors tolerate crystal healing to a limited degree, seeing it as a therapy that can induce relaxation, which ultimately is therapeutic for stress management. Those seeking a crystal healer, however, should be careful not to forgo legitimate treatment for life-threatening disease.

Negative Ions and Biomat relationship –

In order to have a healthy life in our modern society, we cannot ignore the effects of “Ions”. There are many Ions in the air we breathe, and the percentage and number of Positive Ions and Negative Ions change depending on the time and place. An Ion is a particle which has electricity. Ions are being made in the air we breathe so fast that 10 to 20 Ions per cubic centimetre are being made per second. There are 200 to 500 Ions in 1 cubic centimetre of ordinary outdoor clean air, and 100 to 200 Ions in 1 cubic centimetre of clean indoor air. Many studies of the relationship of the Ion (especially the negative Ion) to our health have been made by professional researchers who agree that our health is dependent on the amount and quality of Ions in the air.

The human body consists of billions of cells, and each is enclosed by a cell wall. This cell wall performs many important roles, and one of these is to absorb nutrition and eliminate waste material. The function of the entire cell (including the cell wall) can be normalised if there are enough negative Ions within the cell as well as outside the cell. The reverse holds true if there is a lack of negative Ions, and too many positive Ions within a cell. Thus, absorption of nutrition and elimination of waste material cannot be done effectively.  Other afflictions caused by an improper number of Ions in the body include anaemia, allergies, infirmity, shoulder pain, lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches, habitual constipation, gastroenteritis, hepatitis, kidney trouble, unbalanced autonomic nervous system, and insomnia. Too few negative Ions in our body can cause many diseases, and have a dangerous effect on our overall health. Many studies of the relationship of the Ion (especially the negative Ion) to our health have been made by professional researchers who agree that our health is dependent on the amount and quality of Ions in the air.

So how do negative Ions make us healthier? Through research done by Dr. Takada Maku in Japan, it was discovered that when negative Ionisation is introduced, the Ions in calcium and natrium (salt) in the blood increases, and the blood is purified by increasing blood alkaline. When the amount of negative Ions in the blood is increased, the function of a cell is activated. The electrical material exchange speeds up the cell function, and as a result, nutrition is fully absorbed by the cell and waste material is eliminated. Metabolism is increased and the function of the cell is gradually revived.  Clinical research at a Tokyo Dental College Hospital sponsored by the Japan Red Cross in Shinjuku found that negative Ions have a positive effect in the control of the nervous system in the relief of tension.  At the Public Hygiene Class at Shinsa University, clinical research showed the following: most people experienced good effects in relation to their internal organs after a few weeks of usage. The stomach showed the fastest effects, and the function of the liver was improved which counteracted many poisons.  Dr. Koudo Michio reported that symptoms of paralysis had been dramatically reduced after supplying negative Ions for 30 days. After 90 days of treatment, the patient had recovered completely. Dr. Koudo Michio said that the negative Ion treatment is very effective for light shoulder sclerosis, as well as, symptoms of paralysis in fingers, arms, and the whole body due to occupational effects experienced by the nervous system. In Kumamoto Hospital Japan, Dr. Nagayama of the Kyoto Pain Research Institute found the pain relieving efficiency of the negative Ion had a notable effect on most headache and neuralgia cases.     If 600 to 1000 volts of negative potential is applied to an insulated body, more calcium and sodium minerals in the circulating blood get ionized, thus changing an acidified body to an alkaline body. Although it uses a high voltage, since there is no current flowing there is no danger. It is effective for stiff shoulders, headaches, insomnia, and chronic constipation.  The Bio-mat emits many Negative Ions. Natural tourmaline and the TOCA (tourmaline) layer generates negative ions.
