What does “TDP” stand for?
TDP is the abbreviation for Te ding Dian ci bo Pu, the Chinese Pinyin pronunciation of “Special Electromagnetic Spectrum”.
What is the TDP Far Infrared Mineral Lamp?
The TDP Special Electromagnetic Health Lamp (TDP Lamp for short) was invented in China by a group of scientists and physicians headed by Dr. Gou Wenbin. The TDP Lamp is a new type of therapeutic and health device. Its major functions consist of promoting metabolism, regulating physiological deficiency, diminishing inflammation and easing pain. The TDP Lamp has proven extraordinarily effective in treating numerous ailments, such as muscular aches and pains, soft tissue injuries, arthritis, and various skin conditions. Since being introduced into clinic and family use early in the 1980’s, the TDP Lamp has successfully treated up to 60 million patients in China, Hong Kong, South Asia, Japan, Europe, Australia, and recently, in North America.
Due to its prominent therapeutic effects, the TDP Lamp is known in China and Hong Kong as the “Miracle Lamp”. As a confirmation of its being accepted by the international community, the TDP Lamp won a gold medal at the 35th Brussels Eureka World Fair for Invention in 1986. Also, the TDP Lamp has been registered with the FDA in the United States, Insurance billing under CPT Code 97026.
How does the TDP Lamp Work?
The TDP Lamp is different from conventional heat lamps, infrared lamps and microwave therapeutic devices. The TDP Lamp features a round plate coated with a proprietary mineral clay formation consisting of 33 earth elements essential to the human body. When activated by the built-in electric heating element, this mineral plate emits a special band of far-infrared waves ranging from 2 to 25 (microns) in wavelength and 281034 mw/sq. cm in intensity that coincide with the wavelengths and intensity of the electromagnetic radiations emanating from the human body. As a result, the TDP far-infrared waves are readily absorbed.
What are the effects of Far-Infrared waves on the Human Body?
- Raises the temperature in tissues
- Expands capillary vessels
- Rejuvenates cells
- Promotes blood circulation
- Helps move toxins from cells
- Improves Lymphatic system functions
When is it not suitable to use the healing lamp?
The following symptoms and patients are not suited for TDP far infrared healing lamp treatment:
- High fever
- Otitis media
- Ophthalmic diseases
- Pulmonary tuberculosis
- Serious arteriole sclerosis
- Tendency of bleeding
- During pregnancy
- Patients are fitted with pace makers
What caution should be taken when using the healing lamp?
The lamp becomes hot! Ensure that nothing is touching the lamp head during operation.
