Mercury toxicity can cause a loss of sensation, vision problems, muscle weakness, loss of coordination, loss of memory, fatigue and tremors. Recent studies have linked mercury in the blood to diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, autism and ADHD. Medical professionals recommend using infrared saunas to help the body detoxify itself.
Three types of mercury poisoning
The first type of poisoning is elemental mercury. This is a liquid that gives off mercury vapour at room temperature. The second type is inorganic mercury which is inhaled and passed through the skin. This causes an irritation to the eyes and skin. The third type is organic mercury which enters the body straight through the lungs, skin and stomach.
Infrared sauna benefits from detoxification
Using an infrared sauna helps to detoxify the body to eliminate the residual consequent from mercury that remains behind in the body (accumulating for a long time). Saunas are a safe method of discharging mercury because it promotes large levels of sweating.
Many doctors now recommend detoxification through infrared sauna therapy. This is because when users sweat, the non-water measure removes cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals such as mercury and aluminium.
Regular sauna use and exercise cause the body to reverse the damaging effects of mercury toxicity. Before you begin a sauna detoxification program to treat mercury poisoning, you should consult your doctor first.
