What Are TDP Lamps?
TDP stands for "Teding Diancibo Pu". It basically means it is a electromagnetic spectrum lamp. TDP Lamps are also known as Far Infrared Mineral Energizer Lamps. They have been used for many years in alternative and asian healing practices and have been called the Miracle Lamp.
How Do They Work?
TDP Lamps use a coated plate that consists of 33 to 43 elements. These elements are thought to be essential to the human body. The lamp activates this plate by using a heating element which causes the mineral plate to emit deep penetrating far infrared waves. These infrared waves range from 2 to 25 microns in wavelength which match the natural healing infrared waves created by your own body. These waves are absorbed naturally into your tissues and promote healing.
What Are The Benefits Of Using TDP Lamps?
- Dilating blood vessels and increasing blood flow and oxygen saturation;
- Accelerating the decomposition of unstable cells;
- Enhancing white blood cell function, increasing immune response; and
- Stimulating the hypothalamus, which controls the production of neurochemicals, which control sleep, mood, pain, and blood pressure.
How Are TDP Lamps Used With Acupuncture?
TDP lamps are widely used in acupuncture and oriental medicine clinics as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with acupuncture. When used with acupuncture treatment it is often applied over the area where acupuncture needles are inserted in order to provide more intense stimulation of the area and also as a method to gently and comfortably warm the acupuncture needles, or as a substitute for moxibustion.
What Is The Origin Of The TDP Lamp?
Early in 1970, The Chinese government decided to send an investigation team headed up by Dr.Gou Wenbin, to a century-old ceramic factory located in a rural area of central China . The team's goal was to investigate phenomenon that was reported by the production leader of the factory. The production leader recognized that there were no single complaints related to arthitis and other working related pains despite the intense physical working environment. After interviewing many elderly employers, the investigation team confirmed the production leader's observation: there were no complaints related to pain and arthritis among the factory workers.
In China , the TDP Lamp is called 'Miracle Lamp' because it does not give off any visible light and it has been widely used to treat over 100 chronic conditions. It was introduced into clinics around the world including Japan , Hong-Kong , Korea , Europe , Australia and recently North America and over 60 million patients have been safely treated due to its simplicity and flexibility.
TDP Lamp were awarded the Gold Medal in the 1986 at the Zagreb international Fair in Yugoslavia and in the December of same year it was awarded silver medal at the 35 Brussels Eureka World for Invention. In 1988 the device was cleared by the FDA for use in the United States and has been used by doctors to treat millions of patients with promising results.
The conclusion of the research suggested that the clay was the reason for such few pain symptoms. After an intense study by research institutes, hospitals, and schools, the TDP Lamp was invented to mimic the properties of the clay. The key part of this infared lamp is its heat-treated black clay, which contains 33 different essential mineral elements for the human body. This ceramic plate emits a unique spectrum of electromagnetic waves in the infrared range of 2 to 25 microns-which is compatible with the BIO-spectrum waves released by the human body. This allows for maximum absorption. The absorbed energy promotes microcirculation, metabolism and strengthens immune system as well as tranquilized pain on the body.
