Detoxify Your Body with InfraRed Sauna:
The modern world is full of environmental toxins. It is estimated that there are over 80,000 toxic chemicals used regularly in the US. There are over 500 chemicals stored in our body and the average individual has at least seven pesticides tested in their urine (1, 2). It is imperative to have a daily detoxification lifestyle to get these unwanted toxins out of our system. Infrared sauna technology is an advanced detoxification strategy with remarkable health results.
The major detoxification organs in the body include the liver, kidneys, skin, respiratory system, gastrointestinal system and urinary tract. The major eliminatory processes include respiration, urination, defecation and perspiration.
Due to the amount of toxins in our 21st century society health is absolutely dependent upon optimal eliminatory channels. Infrared sauna’s help the body to maximize toxic elimination through perspiratory channels (3, 4).
What is Infrared Technology:
Far Infrared technology (FIR) is a non-invasive form of light therapy that penetrates the body as much as three inches. Optimal FIR wavelengths vary in size between 5.6 microns and 20 microns. This process heats muscle tissue and internal organs without heating the surrounding air. This helps the organs and tissues push toxins into the blood stream where they can be eliminated through the perspiration process (5).
Infrared wavelengths have the ability to stimulate multiple pathways in the body. These pathways include liver detoxification metabolic pathways, kidney filtration and elimination and fat cell mobilization. It also kills off pathogenic organisms and improves the immune system, reduces stress and stimulates metabolism which enhances healthy weight loss (6).
Benefits of Infrared Technology:
FIR technology can penetrate between 1 ½ – 3 inches into the surface of the body. This has been shown to decrease the size of water clusters in the body which gives them greater mobility and access to body tissues. This enhances cell membrane tone and functionality which helps the cell to absorb nutrients and excrete toxins more effectively. This effect also improves circulatory patterns and toxin release through perspiration (5).
The FIR sauna has been shown to lower lactic acid levels, stimulate endorphins, kill pathogenic microorganisms and strengthen the immune system. It also detoxifies cells by vibrating ionized bonds, stops swelling and inflammation and improves blood and lymphatic circulation. The increase in core temperature that results in improved microcirculation throughout the body which increases oxygen delivery to the cells and tissues (5).
Steam Rooms versus Infrared Sauna:
Perspiration is one of the best ways to eliminate toxins from the body. While all saunas and sweat rooms help induce deep toxin eliminating sweats the unique elements involved with the infrared technology allow one to sweat out a significantly greater amount of toxic debris.
Infrared sauna’s heaters emit radiant heat which helps the body perspire at an average of 80% water and 20% waste and toxins. Traditional saunas using air and steam create a perspiration ratio of 97% water and 3% toxins. This research indicates that infrared saunas are seven times more effective at clearing out toxins than traditional saunas.
Protocols For Using the Infrared Sauna:
It is important for individuals not to overdo themselves in an infrared sauna but instead to allow it to gradually pull toxins. Most experts recommend the first session to be about 5 minutes and then to add 30 seconds per session until you reach 15-30 minutes. It essential to maximize hydration both before and after sauna usage. Also, a mineral and antioxidant rich diet is extremely critical for healthy sauna usage and detoxification processes.
Most infrared saunas run at about 110-140 degrees Fahrenheit while typical steam saunas are around 150-200 degrees (7). Following the sauna with a hot-cold cycled shower improves the detoxification process and closes down the pores, tones the skin and invigorates the body.
Considerations in Purchasing a Sauna:
After careful research, I found many issues within the Infrared sauna industry. The biggest problems I see with many common FIR Sauna’s include:
1) Toxic Materials: Many sauna’s are made with chemical treated wood and toxic glues and other chemicals
2) Dangerous EMF Levels: Many sauna’s produce high levels of electromagnetic frequencies (EMF’s)
3) No Certification: No Official Certification (lack of 3rd party testing)
4) Poor Ventilation: This can lead to increased CO2 in the sauna and reduced detoxification
5) No Warranty: You purchase at your own risk
Infrared Sauna Web Class
Did you know that an infrared sauna session can optimize your immune response by 40% quickly and ease aches and pains and help you feel younger and more energetic?
My friend Robyn Openshaw, the GreenSmoothieGirl, has been studying saunas for 15+ years. She says an infrared sauna is probably the best investment she’s ever made. (It’s part of her incredible healing story.)
Because she wants more people to have access to healing and stress-busting heat, she’s doing something special for my community:
Her popular Why Own A Sauna? Web Class is open for you, for absolutely no cost! For only the next 5 days…
I’m inviting you to join Robyn’s class and discover the extraordinary healing power of heat … through infrared saunas — and how you can own the very best one for your health, for a limited-time.
Robyn tells me that if you do decide you want a high-quality sauna (aka healing sanctuary) in your home — and you definitely will after watching her online class — you better act quick…
Because they sold out last time. And expect to be on a waitlist soon.
Honestly, I have no interest in being a sauna salesman. Whether you are interested in buying or not – it really doesn’t matter to me. But join us anyway and learn why – at some point down the line – you should think about having access to a sauna.
Whether you want to sleep better, lose weight passively, decrease your disease risk – or simply have an easy way to feel good every day – a sauna is the answer
Because studies are showing that regular, ongoing sauna use is how the true healing happens. And when you have one in your home, you’ll actually use it.
- High-Quality Infrared Saunas Strengthen Your Immunity. A 1% increase in body temperature results in a 40% increase in immunity, according to Nobuhiro Yoshimizu, MD, PhD
- They May Also Help You Live Longer.In a large study out of Finland (a country that has more saunas than cars!), frequent sauna users, 4 to 7 times per week, were found to be 40% less likely to die from all causes.
That’s only a small sample of the exciting and credible research Robyn will share, for the next 5 days, during her Sauna Web Class. You can watch right away, after you join!
High-quality infrared saunas are truly so powerful.
In fact, Ari Whitten, an evidence-based health researcher, says:
“If there were a pharmaceutical drug that had the same benefits of using a sauna, it would be the best-selling drug of all-time — an absolute blockbuster drug that would be prescribed to basically EVERYONE…”
If your health is a priority for you (and your family), a high-quality infrared sauna is a no brainer. You’ll see why during Robyn’s class!
