In fact, this metal "paper", just very plastic and flexible, which you can give any shape and use for wraps or packaging of products. In the food and pharmaceutical industry uses aluminum foil, which perfectly reflects the infrared (heat) radiation. This property guarantees the use of food foil while cooking dishes in духовом the closet and in the storage of food.

It is this property of the material, widely used to prevent frostbite.
But as a common food metallised sheet can help with joint disease? There is a theory according to which the therapeutic effect of the foil is attributed to the ability to reflect biotoki, based on the energy meridians of our body. In any violation of, biologically active points emit signals that are perceived by us as pain.
The foil reflects these biotoki back in the same place, which is associated for the potential energy of a sick body. This effect causes the phenomenon of bio-resonance, has a beneficial effect on the cellular structure and the shoulders of the integrity of the energy field, damaged by the disease.
Thanks to the protection of biotokov and enhance the interaction between the matrix array with the cells of the epidermis, improve the condition of the affected joints. Disappear pain syndrome, reduces the severity of the inflammatory process, reduces swelling in the area of the injury, restores mobility of the articular joints. By reducing the heat transfer activates the processes of circulation and limfootoka, normal food хрящевой and muscle tissue, are accelerated metabolic processes, contributing to the restoration of joint function.
Treatment plastic wrap stimulates regenerative and adaptation processes, activates the immune system, strengthens the body's defenses, which allows him to independently cope with the morbid process and speed up recovery.

- if in the composition of the poultice is used a napkin from gauze impregnated with a medicinal solution, between it and a layer of foil it is necessary to lay a cellophane wrapper, not допускающую corrosion of the metal surface.
Limitation of time of holding the procedure are associated with the fact that the metallised sheet in addition, it is leaking thermal radiation and prevents the supply of oxygen and removal of пото-fat secretions. As a result, under the bandage is created by the greenhouse effect, which causes irritation of the skin and creates an environment ideal for the proliferation of pathogenic micro-organisms.
