"Recently, I had a
conversation with a friend, a psychiatrist - about The
Sun Ancon Chi Machine. Her in-laws have one and are
benefiting from its use. My friend kept asking me to
explain what The Chi Machine does and how it works. I
told her everything I knew in response to her
question, but it seemed no matter what I told her, she
just couldn't understand. Finally, I took another
fact; I knew that in her specialty, patients are
sometimes treated with ECT (electroconvulsive or shock
therapy). I asked her to tell me how that worked. She
struggled to explain telling me how the ECT
"rearranges the ions in the brain etc.", it was
obvious that she really didn't have a clear idea of
how that treatment worked. All she did know was that
ECT worked on some patients. I told her The Chi
Machine also worked. After that, she stopped
questioning me about The Chi Machine.
Many members of the medical
profession don't know what to make of The Chi
Machine. I guess I am an exception. I have always
been open to anything that might help my patients
(as well as my family and myself) - even if it is
outside main-stream medicine. I take this approach,
because there are many conditions in my field of
ophthalmology, as well as medicine in general, for
which we do not have a cure or satisfactory
treatment. Regrettably, many of my professional
colleagues are closed-minded toward anything not
taught in medical school, medical conferences or
Another major source of
information to doctors comes from detail men (and
women) - representatives from pharmaceutical
companies who regularly call on doctors to educate
(i.e. promote) the latest advance from their
company; obviously these individuals are not very
objective in what they impart. Nevertheless, the
drug companies have found that their representatives
are able to effectively influence the prescribing
habits of the medical profession.
One of the first patients I
introduced to The Chi Machine was Mary Anne Hill.
She and her husband David were in my office for eye
exams. Mary Anne was confined to a wheelchair. After
she tried The Chi Machine for 10 minutes she noticed
that the muscles in her legs were not as stiff, plus
she was delighted with how "good she felt". They
ordered a Chi Machine and after using it for a
month, she went to the medical school here in Dallas
to see her neurologist. He asked her how she was
doing and she said, "I am doing fantastic!" Her
doctor was a little surprised and then she informed
him she was using her Sun Ancon Chi Machine every
day and that was helping her improve more than any
other therapy before. He looked at her and asked,
"What's a Chi Machine?" He contacted me and I gave
some information for him.
As an ophthalmologist, I am
regularly referred patients by numerous specialists.
Since having The Chi Machine and Far Infrared Dome, I have introduced
these devices to patients who despite excellent care
by their specialists were still experiencing
challenges. Some began using The Chi Machine, plus,
in some cases, the Dome,
and experienced significant improvement. When these
patients reported improvement to their specialists,
the doctors contacted me for information. To his
credit, one specialist purchased a Chi Machine.
The Original Sun
Ancon Chi Machine.
I participate in an online
discussion with other ophthalmologists all over the
world who are performing LASIK laser vision
correction. Someone posed the question about how to
relax LASIK patients pre-operatively. I
informed the group about how I put my LASIK patients
on the Chi Machine and under the FIR Dome for 10 minutes
immediately prior to their procedure. This led to
questions and discussion about The Chi Machine. One
doctor ordered the Chi Machine; after he used it
himself for a few days, he sent me an e-mail with a
very succinct but powerful message: "It works!"
I am on a mission with The Chi
Machine and the Far Infrared
Dome: to educate physicians and other
healthcare professionals, as well as the public,
about these incredible devices. If I never earned a
nickel marketing these products, I would promote
them just as actively as I am presently doing.
Obviously, one doesn't need to be a physician to do
this; all of us who believe in the health benefits
of these amazing machines can carry this message to
the world. As a result of our efforts, we will help
others to live long and healthy lives.
A Different Paradigm.
Dr. Nathan Lipton, MD
The predominant type of
medicine we have in North America, as well as in
other developed countries, is referred to as Western
or allopathic medicine. The paradigm characterizing
this type of medicine is as follows: for a specific
disease - we use a specific therapy, typically
medication. Thus the treatments are
disease-specific. So if we have diabetes we will use
insulin or an oral agent such as glucophage. If we
have another disease such as arthritis, insulin or
glucophage it will be of no use. We have to use a
drug that is specific.
However there is another
paradigm, which can be exemplified by The Chi
Machine for example. In my experience with hundreds
of patients - using The Sun Ancon Chi Machine has
proven therapeutically beneficial for countless
How is this possible? How can a
single therapy help so many diverse conditions? This
simply doesn't fit our Western medical paradigm. The
answer to the question "How can The Chi Machine help
so many different conditions" is as follows. The Chi
Machine empowers the body to support whatever
experience is afflicting. The human body contains an
energy source - which is called different names by
Chi - Our life
The Asian culture calls it Qi
- the East Indian culture labels it Prana. In Jewish
terminology, the term is one that is very similar to
the word Chi; that word is Chai. No matter the name
used, they all refer to the same phenomenon. This
Chi energy exists in every human being as a dormant,
latent or potential energy source. Often this energy
is present flowing at a very low level, but it is
possible to manifest or activate this energy.
When this is done two things
1. We feel wonderful.
2. Healing of virtually anything is possible in an
The trick is how to stimulate
or activate our Chi energy. The great genius of Dr. Inoue
was his invention of a mechanical device - namely
The Chi Machine as an easy, enjoyable and effortless
way to get the Chi energy flowing. All of us who use
and love The Chi Machine know exactly what I am
referring to here. The Chi Machine - in an almost
magical fashion - is able to instantly power up the
Chi energy force in our bodies. I have had some
patients - the very first time they use The Chi
Machine - describe that their entire body is
vibrating when it stops moving. For many it is very
profound. And the therapeutic results are often
extraordinary. This is the power of The Chi Machine.
All of us who have been working with the Chi Machine
- using it ourselves and introducing it to others,
are acquainted with the results that have been
achieved with the Chi Machine.
As a physician I never cease
to be amazed at what the Chi Machine is capable of
as a therapy device. The greatest joy in life is to
help others. Nothing else even comes close. It is so
wonderful to be able to share The Chi Machine with
others who are in pain or who have a condition from
which they have been unable to get relief. The worst
thing is for someone to be suffering from a
condition unnecessarily - because they simply don't
know about an effective therapy that is available.
Most people have never heard of The Chi Machine. Our
mandate then is to be of service to others by
continuing to spread the word about The Chi Machine.
The SOQI Far Infrared
Dr. Nathan Lipton, MD
Not long after obtaining and
discovering the wonderful benefits of The Chi
Machine, I became curious about another device made
by the same company (HTE), called the Far Infrared
I ordered it and found it very
pleasant to use by itself or in conjunction with The
Chi Machine. Around this time, my wife developed
painin her right hip and big toe. Rather than go the
pharmaceutical route, she began using the FIR Dome for two 20 minute
sessions daily over her hip and foot. Within one
month, all her pain was resolved which was very
impressive to me. With continued use, she remains
Before long I brought the Dome
and Chi Machine into my office to use with patients.
The main surgery I perform is LASIK laser vision
correction and I have found it extremely helpful to
place all my patients on The Chi Machine and the
Dome for 10 minutes before their procedure.
I also introduced the Dome to patients whom I
felt could benefit from its use. One of these was
Mr. Neil Hendrikson who reported his experience as
"Dear Dr. Lipton,
Thanks for recommending the FIR Dome. I was in terrible
pain, gone to every doctor, MRI, the works. I was
bedridden, taking pain pills and having terrible
back spasms. I had made an appointment with a pain
specialist when I remembered Dr. Lipton's FIR
machine. I had one air freighted to my house. In
seven days, no more pain. My wife even started using
the Dome for pain
with great relief. Thank you Dr. Lipton."
This and other patient's
experiences with the Far
Infrared Dome demonstrated that far
infrared rays have unique therapeutic properties.
How does far
There is an excellent article in the January
2001 issue of Alternative Medicine Magazine
that addresses this question.
In brief, here is a summary
of the Mechanisms and Benefits of Far Infrared
1. Far Infrared raises
body temperature (also known as hyperthermia)
which has many benefits.
a) It promotes the killing of
many pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria, viruses,
fungi and parasites.
b) Second, it supports the
immune system by increasing production of cytokines
(special immune cells that play a very important
role in disease control).
c) Third, it supports the
immune response against mutated cells (mutated cells
are genetic variants that occur randomly or because
of environmental changes; they are usually not
favorable to the survival of the person in whom they
2. Far Infrared heat
therapy helps athletes recover faster from athletic
Far Infrared helps tissues
repair by increasing oxygen to the tissues and
reducing the production of lactic acid. Also,
through increased lymph drainage, the accumulated
lactic acid from the injury is resolved sooner. It
also promotes rebuilding of injured tissue by having
a positive effect on the fibroblasts (connective
tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury).
Furthermore, it increases growth of cells, DNA
syntheses, and protein synthesis all necessary
during tissue repair.
3. Far Infrared heat
promotes Chinese meridian regulation. Far infrared
can penetrate up to 4 cm into the body. This excites
the vibrational energy of the molecules and
resonates with the cellular frequencies, and thus
promotes the proper flow of energy or chi throughout
the body. This in turn promotes all bio-processes,
increasing metabolism, increasing blood circulation,
and the core body temperature.
4. Far infrared heat
brings about significant detoxification of heavy
metals including mercury and other environmental
Finally, I will share my own
personal experience with far infrared. Several
months ago, I woke up and noticed there was a bump
about the size of a grape on the right side of my
neck. It wasn't there the day before and I felt fine
otherwise. What was it? When I got home that
evening, I used far
infrared for 2 hours - when I finished this session, the bump was
unchanged. The next morning when I woke up and
looked in the mirror, I was amazed to see it had
shrunk 80%. I only wish I had taken a photograph.
After another week of far
infrared sessions, it disappeared.
I know that far infrared heat therapy
units are used in Europe and
Asia to treat almost every health
condition with therapeutically significant results.
As a physician I am on a mission to help educate
other physicians about Far Infrared and how this
wonderful modality can be used to help their
patients remain healthy."
Dr. Lipton died most unexpectedly, but his mission,
his dedication and passion, will be remembered as will his work.
