Dr. Nathan Lipton MD

A Canadian on a passionate mission to educate physicians, healthcare professionals and the public, about the original Chi Machine and the Far Infrared Dome.


Nathan L. Lipton, M.D., F.A.A.O. is board-certified in ophthalmology. He completed his residency at the University of Toronto, where he won the Woywitka Award for Outstanding Resident.

In 1979, he began to practice in Dallas, Texas and published numerous articles in professional journals. He specialized in LASIK vision correction and used the Chi Machine and Far Infrared (FIR) Dome to relax his patients pre-operatively. His mission was to accelerate the acceptance of the Chi Machine and the Far Infrared Dome among health care professionals everywhere.

Below are some wonderful articles written by Dr. Lipton about his personal experiences with both the Sun Ancon Chi Machine and the Far Infrared Hothouse Dome, and the benefits he witnessed with his patients. 

Doctors In General
and The Chi Machine.

"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 professional journals.

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 FIR 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 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.

"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 conditions.

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 various cultures.

chi cloud
CHI - Our Life Force.

The Asian culture calls it Qi or CHI - 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 happen:
1. We feel wonderful.
2. Healing of virtually anything is possible in an accelerated fashion.

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 Far Infrared Dome,
Heat Therapy.

FIR Hothouse

Far Infrared Dome

"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 Dome.

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 pain in 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 pain free.

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 follows:

"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 infrared work?

"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 Heat Therapy:

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 occur).

2. Far Infrared heat therapy helps athletes recover faster from athletic challenges.

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 pollutants.

A personal experience:
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."

Sadly, Dr. Lipton died most unexpectedly, but his mission, his dedication and passion, will be remembered.
