See Red & Feel Near-Infrared
Re: Is the GE heat lamp red or infrared?
Both, and here’s how you can easily tell the difference.
It you can SEE the color red across the room, it’s a red light.
Red light is visible radiation, approximately 620 to 740 nanometers, depending on your eyesight.
If you can FEEL the heat radiating from the bulb, it’s near-infrared (NIR) radiation.
NIR spans from 700 to 1400 nanometers, so obviously some folks can “see” infrared radiation.
Visible red light has more healing power than NIR despite NIR’s greater “photonic energy penetration.”
Don’t let those marketing phrases mislead you.
The shorter wavelengths (around 650 nm) are more readily absorbed by blood, and the longer wavelengths (around 1350) by water.
Obviously, the farther away you are from the bulb, the more visible red you absorb.
The closer you get, the more invisible red you absorb.
Most “experts” advise staying at least 18 inches away from the bulb and keeping your eyes closed.
NASA and the U.S. military have experimented with (and may still be using) red light therapy devices because of the following benefits …
According to Ray Peat …
“Subnormal temperatures cause a shift from phagocytosis to inflammation. Light, especially the red light which penetrates easily into tissues, activates the formation of new cells as well as their differentiation. It affects energy production, increasing the formation of mitochondria, and the activity of the DNA methyltransferase enzymes. Red light accelerates wound healing, and improves the quality of the scar, reducing the amount of fibrosis.”

The liver’s biliary cycle maxes out at 2:00 p.m., and its glycogen cycle does the same at 2:00 a.m.
These are the two best siesta times of the “solar circadian” (no cave-sitting allowed!) 24-hour day.
Prometheus had his liver eaten by birds of prey every day and had it regenerated every night.

Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) asked me to change his transmission fluid.
A new hanger-on named Paul followed me out to Adano’s truck and asked, “Why’s he having you work on his truck?”
“Instead of Recycling me, Adano works on me by having me do mechanical things like this,” I replied. “Every time I come to Houston, he puts a screwdriver in my hand!”
On cue, the clinic door opened, and out walked Adano with a screwdriver.
He handed it to me and said, “Would you tighten up that loose screw on my brake pedal?”
Adano went back in his clinic, and Paul exclaimed, “I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes!”

A man confined to a wheelchair consulted Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty).
He took his first steps in eight years.
An “accident” kept him from returning for a second treatment.
According to Adano, the man wanted to kill his grandmother, and arranged the original “accident” and the latest one to keep from doing it.
“We’re going to work on him from a distance,” Adano announced to a classroom full of Texas Institute of Reflex Sciences students.
“I thought we shouldn’t do long-distance work on a person without their permission,” I asked Adano.
“He gave his permission when he came for help,” he replied.
