Infrared saunas have so many health benefits, including weight loss, detoxification, pain relief, etc. If you’re having trouble losing weight, have a lack of energy, are sick, or suffering from a chronic disease or condition, toxin accumulation is contributing to the problem. Infrared sauna therapy is one of the safest and most powerful ways to eliminate toxins and increase your overall health.
Although the human body is known to be accommodating, ecological alterations are now occurring at a faster rate than our bodies are able to adapt. We are now faced with a situation where inadequacies or uncertainties centering around the manufacturing, use, storage, and disposal of toxic chemicals have resulted in an overwhelming number of environmentally induced illnesses. These illnesses include cancers of almost every organ system of the body, liver disease, pulmonary damage, nervous system disease, immune system damage, reproductive and fertility impairment, and kidney dysfunction.
Scientific evidence shows that thousands of drugs, food additives, pesticides, and other pollutants remain stored in the body long after exposure. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, everyone has 700 chemicals on average in our bodies, while babies have 70 on average. When toxins are not excreted from our body, they accumulate in our fat tissue and do ongoing damage. It’s one of our body’s defense mechanisms to keep toxins away from the vital organs. The heat stress of a sauna is an effective method of removing fat-stored toxins from the body.
Detoxification is a life-long process. We are constantly bombarded with chemicals in our air, food, and water. If you don’t make an effort to detox these chemicals out of your body, they will inevitably manifest as a disease or chronic health condition depending upon your genetic susceptibility. Since, you have been building up a lifetime of chemicals in your body, it will take you one to three years to completely detox when using the sauna every day to every other day. After this, you can maintain your clean, healthy body by using the sauna twice a week.
What Kind of Sauna is Best?
Near Infrared Sauna Lamps are superior to other kinds of saunas. Traditional saunas have to run at much higher temperatures and are therefore typically more uncomfortable to stay in for any period of time. Additionally, the heat from a traditional sauna takes longer to penetrate deep into the body tissues.
Far infrared saunas typically use more electricity and therefore operate at a higher cost and also expose you to more EMF’s (Electro-Magnetic Fields).
The near infrared lamp sauna penetrates more deeply (and more quickly), runs at a lower temperature, produces lower amounts of EMF’s, operates at a lower cost, and provides color therapy due to the red bulbs.
All saunas have therapeutic value, and one may easily add one or more near infrared lamps to a traditional or far infrared sauna.
