I am asking here if anyone with AF has experience of, or information on, using a far infra red (FIR) mat. There are links on other HealthUnlocked areas (eg fibromyalgia) but not here. I am not asking for advice, which must clearly come from a medical practitioner.
We have a full body mat which I used (somewhat infrequently) for detox (see Dr Myhill), relief of aches and pains, stress reduction and promotion of good sleep. I don't have any means of confirming the detox effect but it certainly helped on the other counts. I have not used it since my AF diagnosis. The claims for FIR - as for a traditional sauna - include that it aids cardiac conditioning whilst, during use, reducing blood pressure and increasing calorie burn. Thus, it is said to be helpful for people who are unable to take normal exercise.
