I have been suffering from Endometriosis for quite some time now. I would spend hours on end applying dry heat to my lower abdomen with little success of receiving any sort of pain relief. Sitting in the bath was what helped me the most, along with hot water bottles. Having to get in and out of the bath several times a day or heating up a hot water bottle constantly throws a wrench into someone’s schedule. Moist heat therapy is what gave me the most alleviation from my constant pain. Moist heat carries no side affects unlike dry heat. The traditional heating pads never seemed to keep up a steady temperature, which is something I absolutely love about the ChiliPad™. ChiliPad™ holds a constant temperature for an extended period of time, basically as long as I need the pain relief, ChiliPad™ is there to provide it with no wavering in performance. I can also adjust the temperature to an extract degree to fit my needs instead of having to choose between three channels of a heating pad: low, medium, and high. The medium setting seems to be too cool and the high setting is uncomfortably hot and doesn’t break through past my skin to reach my muscles to really work.
I was very curious about why the ChiliPad™ works so much better than other heating pads, so I did some research. I found that moist heat, in fact, penetrates 27 times deeper than dry heat. Body tissue is able to tolerate moist heat at a higher temperature. Since it is able to tolerate it better, it dilates your blood vessels, increasing the circulation to the painful body tissue. When you are using a traditional electrical heating pad, you aren’t getting any of these fantastic results because it only penetrates skin deep, unlike ChiliPad™, which heals. Electric heating pads also carry an electric magnetic field, which invades the body much further and is linked to serious illnesses, like cancer. Since I suffer from endometriosis, I have a higher risk of developing endometrial cancer, which is linked to the electromagnetic field, influencing my risk for developing certain cancers immensely.
It is wonderful to know that not only am I potentially significantly decreasing any further damage but I am also getting a better amount of relief from your product that cannot be fairly compared to any other product because of the incredible job it does.
