12 Apr 6 Reasons Infrared Saunas Can Improve Your Health
Infrared is an invisible form of energy that is accepted by the body as heat. It’s that deep inner warmth feel when standing in the sun, but without potentially dangerous UV rays. Infrared is completely safe and healthy for all living things. In fact, infrared is so safe, it is what is used in hospitals to warm infant babies.
Why detox? Our skin is our largest organ and sweating, the body’s internal cooling system, is the most natural and effective way to detoxify. It’s a way to heal & stay healthy and our Clearlight Full Spectrum Saunas are designed for the deepest, most detoxifying sweat.
We are all exposed to toxins. They’re found in our food, our water, and the air we breathe. Illnesses can be caused by the build-up of toxic chemicals, pathogen, and carcinogenic heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol. Ridding the body of these toxins can help relieve symptoms, prevent illness, and increase overall health and vitality.
One of the most compelling reasons is the natural pain relief associated with infrared sauna therapy. You too can toss the pain pills and step into one of our healing sanctuaries to relieve tension and relax muscles. Infrared penetrates to joints, muscles and tissues by increasing blood circulation and speeding oxygen flow. In addition, it breaks up and reduces lactic acid deposits, accelerating connective tissue repair and allowing tight and worn-out muscles to relax. Doctors often recommend infrared heat therapy for arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic pain conditions, and to athletes for relief from sports injuries.
If you’re looking to lose real weight, we can help. Relax in comfort while you burn real calories and shrink your waistline. In fact, up to 600 calories can be burned in a 40-minute session! As the body works hard to cool itself and regulate core temperature, it expends a lot of energy, which is why so many calories are burned. Infrared saunas are the ONLY natural and healthy way to burn calories without exercising.
RELAXATION & REDUCE STRESS
Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakened immune systems. The more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate/blood pressure and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection.
IMPROVED BLOOD PRESSURE & CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
Regular use of an infrared sauna can improve cardiovascular health by lowering both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.
ANTI-AGING & SKIN REJUVENATION
The removal of toxins is a key component to achieving healthy, radiant skin. Sweating carries off deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Many have reported a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improved skin tone and tightening/elasticity. Infrared may also help burns, incisions heal faster, and reduce scarring.
PSORIASIS & OTHER SKIN CONDITIONS
Psoriasis and many other skin disorders originate in the liver. When toxins are ingested, the liver does not have the ability to break down, metabolize, and excrete the toxins. The toxins are sent to the skin for elimination via sweat. When the toxins hit the cell just below the skin, the body overproduces skin cells by a factor of 10,000. The toxins come out on the dead skin cells. By sweating regularly, the toxins are eliminated via the sweat and sebaceous glands as opposed to through the shedding of skin.
