Infrared Sauna Health Benefits
There is no one on this planet with a body free from accumulated toxins.
The fact is our exposure to chemicals and heavy metals that often exceeds our body’s abilities to excrete them. The sources are everywhere: mercury from fish, mercury from dental fillings, plastics from food packaging, pesticides from our immediate environment, fire retardants throughout the house, and even carpeting outgases chemicals known to cause cancer. That beloved new car smell, while indicative of a car with many years left to it’s life, may actually be shortening yours. All of these sources, independently, are minuscule and innocuous, but they accumulate in the body ultimately causing problems for many of us.
Infrared Saunas can be used for:
Achieving Good Health
Heavy Metal Poisoning (including mercury)
Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
Anxiety and Depression
Detoxification Prior to and after Chemotherapy
Detoxification Prior to Conception (prospective parents)
Medical doctors and health practitioners worldwide recognize the Infrared Sauna as perhaps the most effective method of removing both chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body. The health benefits from infrared saunas are numerous.
Far Infrared Sauna removes heavy metal toxins (including mercury), and fat-stored (lipophilic) toxins, plus metals trapped in connective tissue and the brain. It also increases the eliminative, detoxifying, and cleansing capacity of the skin by stimulating the sweat glands. When the liver, kidneys, and lungs have been damaged by chronic exposure to environmental toxins, the body’s ability to eliminate toxins becomes impaired. Thermal Life sauna assists the body in eliminating the toxins and promotes the restoration of those organs back to proper function so that they can address future toxins.
ENHANCE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Each far infrared sauna session causes a brief, beneficial increase in body temperature, which improves immune system health by boosting production of infection-fighting white blood cells (leukocytes) by your bone marrow and killer T-cells by your thymus.
IMPROVE CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
Medical research shows that regular use of a far infrared sauna may be as effective for cardiovascular conditioning as exercise. As the body heats up, it cools itself by sending blood from the internal organs to the extremities and the skin, thus increasing heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. In the 1980s, NASA concluded that far infrared stimulation is the ideal way for astronauts to maintain cardiovascular conditioning during long space flights.
High daily stress levels put constant strain on the body’s nervous system and can contribute to chronic disease. The far infrared sauna helps to reduce physical stress by boosting circulation and triggering the production of endorphins, the “feel good” hormones. Besides these physiological effects, a sauna session also contributes to stress reduction simply by providing a peaceful and relaxing environment away from it all.
By dilating blood vessels, infrared heat increases blood circulation to injured areas, speeding up the healing process and relieving pain. Infrared heat has also been used extensively in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, and muscle spasms.
WEIGHT LOSS & CELLULITE CONTROL
Toxins can play a significant role in preventing us from losing weight as well as gaining weight. The body will even create fat to store chemical toxins when they excede the body’s ability to excrete them. Those who have been unsuccessful at dieting often times have a toxicity problem and will find success after using a Thermal Life sauna to eliminate the chemicals stored in the fat cells that can impede weight loss. Those wishing to lose weight should also note that the cardiovascular effect from a single sauna session burns as many as 600 calories.
Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water, and waste products trapped near the surface of the skin. The sauna is quite effective at dealing with cellulite when combined with massage therapy and nutrition.
BEAUTIFY THE SKIN
Perspiration deeply cleanses the skin, creating beautiful and improved tone, texture, and color.
