The radiant energy created by an infrared sauna is the same as heat from the sun, minus the ultraviolet rays. The heat penetrates the skin and increases blood circulation deep in the body. A recent study concluded that sweat from a traditional sauna was up to 97% water, while the sweat released in an infrared sauna was only 80-85% water. The remaining 15-20% was comprised of sulphuric acid, heavy metals, uric acid, sodium, ammonia and fat-soluble toxins.
Far infrared heat therapy promotes deep penetration and releases debris from the subcutaneous fat beneath the skin. It allows the body to gradually free stored toxins from organs and tissues, which eventually make their way to the fat tissue under the skin. Far infrared technology is effective for patients at end-stage congestive heart failure. Research suggests that the heat promotes significant chemical detoxification and an improved heart function as a result of the therapeutic cleansing.
It’s obvious why saunas work so well. A fever is the body’s natural means of healing by releasing bacteria, viruses and toxic organisms by sweating. Infrared sauna use is one of the best methods to prompt a state of hyperthermia for the exercise of detoxification. This process removes toxins from fat cells and is also thought to deconstruct cancer cells as they begin to die off when the malignant tissue reaches 40 degrees.
Everyday a new skin layer replaces the old. The skin is a body’s largest elimination organ and releases toxin daily by means of sweating. Infrared therapy is a highly effective practice to achieve eliminates toxins and leave you feeling great.
