Infrared Sauna

As you might know, sweating is a great way to burn calories and rid your body of unwanted toxins. But how do you sweat when you’re injured, or unable to exercise? 
I like to sweat in an infrared sauna. Infrared saunas help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. The benefits don’t stop there. With infrared sauna technology, you can also lose weight, relax, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation, and purify your skin. 


Benefits of Infrared Sauna  
1. Detoxification 
Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins, making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins. 
2. Relaxation 
Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress. 
3. Pain Relief 
If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles. 
4. Weight Loss 
The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 1000 calories. 
5. Improved Circulation 
As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it. Consistent infrared sauna sessions, especially in the middle-infrared level, can stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise. 
6. Skin Purification 
Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.

Toxin Removal

By far the most important health benefit of Far Infra Red Saunas is its efficiency in removing toxins from the body. This is achieved by a process called “resonate absorption” whereby the frequency of the Far Infra Red matches the frequency of the water in the cell, causing toxins to be released into the blood stream and excreted through sweat.

 

Studies have shown that the sweat of people using a conventional sauna was found to be 95-97 % water while the sweat of those using the Far Infra Red Saunas was 80-85% water with the 15-20% non-water component being cholesterol, fat soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals such as mercury & aluminium, sulphuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid. This unusually high concentration of heavy metals & other fat-soluble toxins is not found in the sweat from normal exercise. Increased blood circulation caused by sweating stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals. This removal of toxins from the system can help assist the symptoms of conditions such as allergies, acne, chronic fatigue, frequent colds, muscle and joint pain, poor concentration, eczema and mood swings.
