How can infrared saunas help detoxify?
We live in a world crowded with toxic chemicals that didn’t exist less than a century ago. Our body is now the home to hundreds of these harmful chemicals. In fact, studies show that 100 percent of human fat cell biopsies reveal elevated levels of known toxins! What can you do to help detoxify your body?
These harmful chemicals are difficult for the body to eliminate and they end up accumulating over time. With this accumulation, toxins can wreck havoc on the body. Toxic overload creates an acidic internal environment and has been implicated in a number of diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic fatigue, allergies, skin conditions, asthma, mental illness, hypertension, gastritis, kidney disease and obesity. Studies are beginning to reveal that toxic overload contributes to more serious conditions such as autoimmune diseases, inflammatory/rheumatoid arthritis, and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Infrared heat increases blood circulation and stimulates the sweat glands, releasing those accumulated toxins in the body. Regular infrared sessions detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals such as lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium, as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other toxic compounds. Saunas also stimulate the cells to release toxins which can then be eliminated by the liver and bowel. Several published studies have now shown that infrared therapy can rapidly remove of a wide range of toxic substances from the body. The best way to get rid of heavy metals and pesticide residues is through an infrared sauna.
