Far Infrared Sauna
Today, there are more than 77,000 chemicals in active production in this country. Our exposure to these chemicals is greater now than at any time since the beginning of the industrial revolution. When ingested, these chemicals can remain in the body for years, altering our metabolism, causing enzyme dysfunction/nutritional deficiencies; creating hormonal imbalances and lowering our threshold of resistance to chronic disease. These toxins block the cells’ ability to exchange oxygen, receive nourishment and produce energy. We are continually subjected to poor air quality, chemically contaminated food and water, household cleaners, paint fumes, pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides and heavy metals. When our bodies exceed the limit that we can excrete, we begin to store these toxins (in the blood, musculature, organs and lymph.) This toxic accumulation compromises our physiological and psychological health and leads to chronic diseases and other ailments.
The average person who uses a Far Infrared Sauna is exposed to temperatures in the range of 100°F to 130°F for approximately 30-45 minutes compared to 10-15 minutes in a Finnish sauna. Traditional Finnish saunas usually operate at temperatures of 110°F to 150°F. Most people cannot tolerate temperatures in this range for extended periods of time, as it can cause excessive perspiration and the drying out of mucous membranes.
Many symptoms that are associated with chemical and heavy metal toxicity include allergies, acne, anxiety, chronic fatigue, depression, eczema, frequent colds or flu, insomnia, memory loss, mood swings, muscle and joint pain, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia and many more. The Far Infrared Sauna is recognized by health practitioners world-wide as perhaps the most effective heat method of removing chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body. Its relatively low heat emission makes it the detox method of choice for chronically ill patients as well as those that are in good health and wish to stay that way by reducing the level of toxicity in their bodies.
A typical sauna session will cause a brief 1°F to 3°F increase in body temperature. This is the equivalent of a mild fever, which is the body’s natural defense against bacteria/viruses. This beneficial side effect of the Far Infrared Sauna triggers the production of white blood cells and T cells, stimulating the immune system.
The body’s natural response to heat is to maintain homeostasis. It does this by diverting blood from the organs to the extremities and skin. This increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Medical research indicates that use of a Far Infrared Sauna may be as effective a means of cardiovascular conditioning similar to but not a substitute for regular exercise. This is important to those individuals who are not physically capable of regular exercise.
Additionally, Far Infrared Therapy may assist in weight loss and weight control. It does this by reducing heavy metals, which are directly related to metabolic imbalances in the body. Metabolic imbalances in the body cause poor digestion and weight gain. It also decreases the amount of toxins stored in fat. Fat-stored toxins can prevent the body from eliminating the fat itself. Although weight loss due to perspiration is quickly regained, sending more blood to the capillaries and converting fats and carbohydrates results in as much as 600 calories burned during one short session.
Continuous strain on the nervous system often leads to a high level of stress, one of the elusive causes of many chronic diseases. Repeated sessions can result in a considerable drop in average stress levels and promote a calming atmosphere, especially if aromatherapy is used.
The Far Infrared Sauna can help restore health and balance to your body.
HOW DOES IT WORK?:
FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates through skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissues causes bloods vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and the heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.
I have had a Far Infrared Sauna Dome for several years now. As you can see above it’s an amazing machine with many, many health benefits. As a health expert I know that the MOST IMPORTANT KEYS in achieving optimal health, PREVENTING DISEASE and slowing down the AGING PROCESS is maintaining an ALKALINE pH and DETOXIFYING your body. Unless you have an ongoing system of ALKALIZING & DETOXING your body, you will become a statistic. 7 out of 10 die from PREVENTABLE chronic disease: Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and Cancer. Most people I know don’t practice ANY detoxing. It’s just a matter of time before chronic disease sets in, in the form of some type of cancer, heart problem, Diabetes, etc. Trust me it’s a 100% sure thing with the amount of toxins, even very careful people absorb on a daily basis.. This machine is worth it’s weight in gold. They have come way down in price as technology has gotten better: a great investment for it’s tremendous benefits.
