5) How long do the socks take to work?

Far Infrared Socks start working as soon as you start wearing them. Some customers report an immediate change (within 20-30 min), while others have noticed a more gradual transition over a longer period of time from a few weeks to a few months.


6) What if I don't feel any changes?

Everyone feels slightly different sensations from the bio-ceramic socks. The majority of customers who wear Far Infrared Socks tell us they feel the soothing energy and pain relief within 15 - 20 min. If you do not feel anything, do not be alarmed as the healing FIR energy is still working. If you are extremely dehydrated, then it may take awhile before you start to feel the beneficial effects.


7) Are there any side effects?

There are no known negative side-effects from wearing Far Infrared products. As the body rids itself of old toxins and residual buildup, some individuals may experience some initial detoxification symptoms. For example: heavy smokers may react with a mild skin rash. This is usually a good sign the Far Infrared Socks are working. If you continue to experience prolonged symptoms, discontinue using the product and contact your physician.
