The HotHouse Far Infrared Dome
By Nathan L. Lipton, M.D., F.A.A.O.
Not long after obtaining and discovering the wonderful benefits of the Chi Machine, I became
curious about another device made by the same company, called the HotHouse or the Far Infrared Dome. I ordered it
and found it very pleasant to use by itself or in conjunction with the Chi Machine. Around this time my wife
developed arthritis in her right hip and big toe. She was seen by a rheumatologist who recommended powerful
anit-inflammatories which micht have been very effective but also can cause side-effects. Rather than go the
pharmaceutical route, she began using the HosHouse for two 20 minutes sessions daily over her hip and her foot.
Within one month all her symptoms resolved which was very impressive to me. With continued use, she remains
Before long I brought the HotHouse and the Chi Machine into my office to use with patients. The
main surgery I perform is Lasik laser vision correction and I have found it extremely helpful to place all my
patients on the Chi Machine and the HotHouse for 10 minutes before their procedure in order to relax them. I also
introduced the HotHouse to patients whom I felt could benefit from its use. One of these was Mr. Neil Hendrikson
who reported his experience as follows:
Dear Dr. Lipton -
Thanks for recommending the FIR HotHouse - I was in terrible pain, gone to every doctor, MRI, the
works. I have bone spurs, and two bulging discs in my back. I was bedridden, taking pain pills and having terrible
back spasms. I had made an appointment with a pain specialist when I remembered Dr. Lipton's FIR machine; I had one
air-freighted to my house. What a miracle! In seven days, no medicine was needed. My wife even started using the
HotHouse for sciatica with great relief. Thank you Dr. Lipton".
This and other patient's experiences with the HotHouse demonstrated that far infrared rays have
unique therapeutic properties. How does far infrared work? There is an excellent article in the January 2001 issue
of Alternative Medicine magazine which adresses this question.
In brief, here is a summary of the mechanisms and benefits of the HotHouse Far Infrared Unit.
The HotHouse raises body temperature (also known as hyperthermia) - which has many benefits.
a. It promotes the killing of many pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria, viruses, fungus, and
b. Second, it modulates the immune system by increasing production of cytokines (special immune cells
that play a very important role in disease control). In Europe and Central America people pay
exorbitant sums of money to bring cultivated cytokines in for their health needs. The HotHouse promotes
the production of our very own (biologically safe) cytokinine cells without fear of external
contamination and excessive cost.
c. Third, it coordinates the immune response against mutated cells. (Mutated cells are genetic variants
that occur randomly or because of environmental changes; they are usually not favorable to the survival
of the person in whom they occur.
The HotHouse helps athletes recover faster from athletic trauma; especially the combination of the
HotHouse and the Chi Machine help tissues repair by increasing oxygenation to the tissues and reducing
the production of lactic acid. Also through increased lymph drainage, the accumulated lactic acid from
the injury is resolved sooner. It also promotes rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive
effect on the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury). Furthermore, it
increases growth of cells, DNA synthesis, and protein synthesis - all necessary during tissue repair.
The HotHouse promotes Chinese meridian regulation. Far infrared can penetrate up to 4 cm (1 1/2 inches)
into the body. This excites the vibrational energy of the molecules and resonates with cellular
frequencies, and thus promotes the proper flow of energy or "chi" throughout the body. This in turn
promotes all bioprocesses, increasing metabolism, increasing blood circulation, and the core body
temperature. One hour under the HotHouse burns over 900 calories by raising the metabolism and body
The HotHouse detoxifies the enviromentally ill patient. Far infrared brings about significant
detoxification of heavy metals including mercury and other environmental pollutants.
Finally I will share my own personal experience with far infrared. Several months ago, I woke up
and I noticed there was a lump about the size of a grape on the right side of my neck. It wasn't there the day
before and I felt fine otherwise. What was it? Likely a lymph node - which certainly is a source of concern. When I
got home that evening, I got under the far infrared unit for 2 1/2 hours; when I finished this treatment the lump
was unchanged. The next morning when I awoke and I looked in the mirror, I was amazed to see the lump had shrunk
80%; I only wish I had taken a photograph. After another week of treatment, it disappeared.
I know that Far Infrared units are used in Europe and Asia to treat many health disorders with
therapeutically significant results. As a physician I am on a msision to help educate other physicians aobut Far
Infrared and how this wonderful modality can be used to help their patients remain healty.
Dr. Nathan Lipton, M.D., F.A.A.O. is board-certified in opthalmology. He completed his residency at the
University of Toronto, where he won the Woywitka Award for Outstanding Resident. In practice in Dallas, Texas since
1979, Dr. Lipton specializes in lasik laser vision correction and uses the Chi Machine and HotHouse to relax his
patients preoperatively. His mission is to accelerate the acceptance of the Chi Machine and HotHouse among health
care professionals everywhere.
Dr. Nathan Lipton passed away suddenly. His passion for sharing the Chi Machine and Far Infrared Hothouse
among health care professionals will always be remembered and appreciated.
