Infrared Sauna & Infrared Heaters
Wet saunas always seemed to be good enough for me, but I had no idea that an “infrared sauna” had so many benefits. We all know the skin is the largest organ of your body. It absorbs everything, the good and the bad.
An “infrared sauna” emits rays that penetrate into the tissues to a depth of 1.5 inches. This heat stimulates our fat cells to release toxins at the core of many health challenges that can be locked in deeply, such as petrochemicals and mercury.
This accumulation of toxins blocks blood circulation, oxygenation, nutrient supply and waste removal. Being in a hyperthermic state due to the increased core body temperature increases blood circulation, converts fat and increases the heart rate. It is possible to burn upwards to 700 calories in a single session in an infrared sauna. Some infrared sauna proponents claim that a 30 minute sauna session is equivalent to jogging or rowing for thirty minutes. The removal of heavy metals that were contributing to metabolic and hormonal imbalance and weight gain can also improve the basal metabolic rate and normalize body weight. The decrease of toxins stored in the subcutaneous fat goes a long way towards increasing a feeling of lightness in the body and willingness to exercise. Increasing circulation and oxygenation to the glands improves their health and their ability to keep the body balanced.
My client has one in her home and she swears that this is the ONLY way to keep toxins out of your system. She also has infrared heaters in her gym and uses them while running 6 miles daily on the treadmill. She is in amazing shape, and now I know why.
