Infrared Sauna Detox

Using an infrared sauna may enhance your body cleanse when used with well rounded holistic nutritional program.  While helping you relieve stress, it is very relaxing and has numerous other beauty-enhancing and health benefits.

Infrared saunas differ from traditional steam saunas in that they use radiant energy to heat the body, instead of heating the air around your body.  This allows the sauna user a more comfortable session because the temperature can be lower; with an average temperature of around 125 degrees Fahrenheit instead of a traditional sauna temperature of approximately 170 degrees F.

The main routes of elimination of environmental toxins are urine, liver/colon and sweat.  We also know that our bodies store toxic environmental chemicals such as pesticides, hydrocarbon residues from pollution as well as heavy metals.  Storage is caused by a state of our bodies being over burdened as well sluggishness in the elimination system, which is why this type of therapy may complement a body cleanse and help your body remove this toxic waste.

According to Dr. Sherry A. Rogers, M.D., the far infrared sauna is not only safer than a traditional steam, but more efficient at helping your body eliminate toxins.

Researchers are finding the benefits to be beneficial not only for detoxing but for cardiovascular conditioning as well. The heat raises metabolism and increases circulation without the heat, which is often not tolerated by heart patients.  Limited evidence does show this type of sauna is beneficial to normalizing blood pressure as well as congestive heart failure.

Helping your body eliminate toxins stored in subcutaneous fat may make it easier for weight loss as well as help alleviate a number of ailments, safely.   

Summary of Infrared Sauna Detox Benefits

  • It uses energy to heat your body instead of the room. Therefore the temperature is much lower and the process is not only more comfortable, but safer for your heart and blood pressure. Some studies indicate it actually lowers blood pressure.
