Tourmanium Ceramic Disks
Tourmanium is composed of the semi-precious stone Tourmaline, the element Germanium, volcanic rock, and elan. When the bed is turned on, the Tourmanium Ceramic Disks on the Nuga Best NM-5000 and NM-4500 Thermal Massage Beds emit the warm heat of Far-Infrared Rays deep into the body. The Tourmanium Ceramic Disks also naturally emit healthy Anions due to its Tourmaline and Germanium composition. Anions (or negative ions).

Tourmanium ceramics emits far-infrared rays and anions.
NUGA Genuine Tourmanium is a miraculous therapeutic tourmanium ceramic mat created by firing/sintering the ultra-micro particulate mixture of tourmaline, germanium, elvan and volcanic rock at 1300 C. This mat emits more than 3000 anions per cubic centimeter, creating a fresh environment. For your reference, 0~hundreds of anions exist under usual conditions of daily life. According to the test report prepared by KIFA (Korea Far Infrared Association), this product emits 38,300 anions / cubic centimeter (Apr. 14, 2005). Sleep soundly with the help of tourmanium far-infrared ceramic.
Environment-friendly materials used – human-friendlyThe special copper fiber with high corrosion and shatter resistance shields electromagnetic waves, and the natural palm used inhibits mat deformation and gives antifungal, mothproof, moisture-proof and deodorant effects.
What Are Negative Ions (Anions) and How Can They Help Me?
The reason the body feels refreshed while you're in the shower, in a forest, or near a waterfall, hot spring, or the ocean, is because of the negative electric charge in the air. These negatively charged particles are called Anions, or negative ions. When an atom loses an electron, it becomes a positive ion. When an atom gains an electron, it becomes a negative ion. Anions promote the metabolism of cells, provide a sense of wellness, refresh the blood, relieve fatigue, increase appetite, and relieve stress. Anions have been shown to increase Alpha Brain Waves and to positively affect the oxidation of Serotonin in the bloodstream. Alpha Brain Waves vary from 8 to 13.9 Hz and are directly associated with relaxation, superlearning, relaxed focus, light trance, increased Serotonin production, pre-sleep, pre-waking drowsiness, meditation, and the beginning of access to the unconscious mind. The Anion has been called the vitamin of oxygen. The distribution of negative ions per cubic centimeter in a forest, or around a hot spring, waterfall, or beach is typically around 800-2000 atoms.
The Tourmanium Ceramic Disks on the Nuga Best NM-4500 and NM-5000 Thermal Massage Beds and the Nuga Mats are composed of the semi-precious stone Tourmaline, Germanium, volcanic rock, and elvan. When turned on, the Tourmanium Ceramic Disks naturally emit healthy Anions that envelop you during the massage, thus enhancing the life enhancing effects.
Since many Nuga Best NM-4500 and NM-5000 Beds and Nuga Tourmanium Ceramic Mats are on throughout the day inside the Zion Alternative Therapy Wellness Center, the number of Anions per cubic centimeter within the Center is very high, enhancing the calming and peaceful atmosphere and experience.
The Effects of Anions on the Body
Blood Purification Effect
Healthy blood is a weak alkaloid. Positive ions turn the blood acidic. Negative ions neutralize acidic blood back into a weak alkaloid. This can help to prevent geriatric diseases, cancer, and many allergies.
Negative ions stimulate the parasympathetic nerves to calm the soul and the mind and activate the endorphin hormone which amplifies a relaxed sensation. The beta-endorphin within the brain is nicknamed "the happiness hormone" and functions to stabilize the mind, thus aiding to drive out diseases. Anions have been shown to increase Alpha brain waves helping to explain why so many people sing in the shower and why some people need a shower to fully wake up after sleep.
Controlling the Autonomic Nervous System
One in three people will suffer a stress-related break down at some point. Conditions related to stress include: insomnia, headaches, feeling of cold, shoulder, neck and back aches, and many other illnesses. These illnesses are said to be caused by positive ions in the nervous system. Negative ions work to restore balance in the nervous system. The nervous system controls organs and tissues within the body. The nervous system consists of the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.
Negative ions strengthen the intestines and the liver which are at the center of your immune system. By keeping your liver and intestines healthy, your immune system will strengthen too.
Strengthening Your Lungs
Many people are affected by colds, bronchitis, asthma, allergies, and pneumonia. Polluted air is full of positive ions, which in turn has a negative effect on lung health. The negative ions induce the discharge of carbon dioxide and increase the transfer of oxygen to the cells. Increased oxygen transfer in the lungs speeds respiratory illness recovery.
On cold, rainy days and when a low pressure weather system approaches, many people with arthritis complain of pain and stiffness in the hands, back, knees, etc. This is due to the increased amount of positive ions in the air. Exposure to negative ions on these days will bring balance inside your body, and the related pain will be lessened.
Activation of Cells
The inside and outside of your body's cells are full of ions. There are more negative ions inside, and more positive ions outside the cells. The Transportation of Life occurs during the metabolism process when a cell transfers from the suspension state to and active state. This is readily visible through an ECG of the activity of the cells in the heart. This state is called 'depolarization' and the negative ions lead the way.
Purifies the Air
Cigarette smoke, dust mite feces, vehicle and industrial emissions, and other particulate matter all pollute the air that we breath. These particulates are full of positive ions and are the prime causes of asthma and many allergies. Just like the Sharper Image, Ionic Breeze, negative ions in your home neutralize polluted air, making it clean and refreshing.
Improving Allergy Conditions
All allergic diseases come from the antigens. The body neutralizes that antigen and makes an antibody. Allergic diseases can be divided into two groups... inhalant allergies and food allergies. Inhalant allergies include asthma, pollinosis, allergic splenitis, and allergic conjunctivitis. Food allergies include atopy dermatitis, hypersensitive colitis, and hypersensitiveness. By inhaling negative ions, cinder and pollution causing antibodies are reduced.
Diseases Caused by the Oxidation of Blood
Oxidation of blood causes the following conditions/diseases: high blood pressure; hardening of the arteries; cerebral apoplexy; heart disease; allergic disease (asthma, bronchitis); weak conditions; menopause; insomnia; headache; insomnia; chronic constipation; arthritis; ulcer of the stomach; diabetes; and many more
When Should You Ventilate Air?
Air inside buildings should be ventilated at the time of day when the most negative ions are in the air. This is typically between 6am and 10am in the morning. You'll notice a significant difference in the amount of negative ions in the air simply by ventilating the air a few times per day. Closed, unventilated spaces are bad for your health, as the air likely contains many harmful chemical agents. The generation of negative ions, ventilation, blocking electromagnetic waves, controlling humidity, and charcoal are all natural ways to promote health.
