Over the last couple of decades, the benefits of infrared saunas have been extoled as well as tested. Studies show that sweating in a traditional sauna releases less toxins than in an infrared sauna. The sweat from a person in an infrared sauna may contain 5x the toxins from that of a person’s sweat in a traditional sauna.
These are the deep detoxifying benefits of infrared heat. The lower ambient temperature in an infrared sauna vs. a wet/hot rock sauna is also less taxing on the body.
Detoxification – Sweating out impurities
At health shows, alternative medicine doctors are present and explain that many ailments are caused by toxins in the body. If you can release toxins from the body, you can become a happier person. From arthritis in the muscles to skin disorders, sweating out toxins can help.
At the International Lyme and Associated diseases conference (ILADS), discussions abound regarding the expulsion of mercury from the human body. Getting toxins out of our system is seen to be beneficial to our health and well-being. Getting rid of toxins can help the body work better according to alternative medicine practitioners.
Migraine headaches and sinus problems benefit from the penetrating rays to relieve symptoms.
Even weight loss is a side-benefit of sweating. For instance in a Therasauna, a half-hour to forty minute session can burn about 300-400 calories. Heart rate and metabolism are increased which burns fuel and calories.
Alternative medicine practitioners, doctors and other authors have mentioned or recommended Therasauna in over 20 books.
Lab tests show how high levels of mercury, insecticides and pesticides have been reduced significantly. Some doctors at the shows have reviewed Therasauna lab tests rather than relying just on brochures or claims.
Taking time to relax in your infrared sauna can do wonders for stress relief. Cortisol is a principal stress hormone in the body and can induce muscle breakdown and fisceral fat gain. Cortisol levels drop when relaxing or before sleep.
Persistently high cortisol levels may be the result of problems of the pituitary or adrenal glands such as producing too much or too little hormones. But in normally healthy individuals, relaxing in the sauna and relaxation exercises can lower these stress hormone levels.
Blood flow is increased which can lower blood pressure by using an infrared sauna regularly. The resulting improved circulation provides increased blood flow to extremities.
According to the Mayo Clinic: “Several studies have looked at using infrared saunas in the treatment of chronic health problems, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure and rheumatoid arthritis, and found some evidence of benefit.”
Skin purification and cleansing is a natural result of sweating out impurities and toxins.
