What is Scleroderma?
Scleroderma in an autoimmune disorder and a connective tissue disease - a thickening of the skin - by an overproduction of collagen.
The condition is not that common, but does affect approximately 300,000 Americans.
While scleroderma disease ranges from mild to severe, the condition is not contagious.
The two main types of Scleroderma (pronounced "sklare-oh-derma") are systemic and local.
- Systemic Scleroderma is when more than one part of the body is included (skin, capillaries, veins a arteries, and internal organs).
- Localized Scleroderma affects only the skin, and possibly some of the tissue just under the skin.
Exact causes are still unknown, but there could be a genetic link, and the development of the disease after exposure to some foreign agent, such as a virus.
Early stages of Scleroderma are difficult to diagnose, as many of the symptoms of pain and swelling are similar to other conditions, like lupus or arthritis.
Treating & Preventing Scleroderma:
Far Infrared Therapy gloves are a useful and positive treatment of Localized Scleroderma.
The infrared energy rays help to regulate the production of collagen.
FIR helps to reverse some of the skin hardening and assists the autoimmune system to function closer to optimum levels.
Healing FIR energy reduces the likelihood of excessive skin thickening.
Regular checkups with your doctor is recommended.

FIR Gloves for Scleroderma?
The threads in Prolotex™ Gloves are fused with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR). These safe waves of soothing FIR energy penetrate deep into the tissues of your fingers helping to restore the health of your fingers and hands by increasing the molecular activity of the cells.
The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your fingers dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach the over stress areas. Better circulation to the skin means better overall health of your hands. .
