Far Infrared Sauna

Sauna Sunlight to bright your life

     The health benefits of sauna have been known for centuries. In Spain, cinnabar miners have for hundreds of years use sweating as a means of eliminating mercury from their body. Certain Native Americans have used sweat lodges for purification purposes. The period spent in the sauna is the perfect safe enhancement of your body’s ability to excrete toxic chemicals.
     The skin is our largest organ, eliminating waste via perspiration. Heat causes toxins to be released from cells into the lymphatic fluid.  Since sweat is manufactured from lymphatic fluid, the toxins from the lymph are released when the body perspires. 
     Sauna creates sweat intentionally for therapeutic purposes. Infrared sauna produces two to three times more sweat volume than conventional one. Far infrared saunas particularly recommended because they seem to have the best current science.
     In one study performed by American researchers, the sweat of people using conventional sauna was found to be 95 to 97 percent water while the sweat of those using far infrared thermal system was 80 to 85 percent water with non-water portion principally cholesterol, fat-soluble toxic heavy metals (such as mercury and aluminum), sulfuric acid sodium, ammonia and uric acid. This unusually high concentration of heavy metals and other fat-soluble toxins is not found in the sweat from normal exercise.

Infrared sauna has a greater range of therapeutic efficiency:
-         Detoxification
         Immune system enhancement
         Pain relief and control
         Musculoskeletal including arthritis, bursitis
         Muscle tension, muscle spasm
         Healing of sprains and strains
         Lower back pain
         Sport injuries
         Skin cleansing and rejuvenation
         Weight control
         Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
Because of lower temperature used, it considered safer for those at cardiovascular risk.

     To start you should have two sauna sessions of fifteen to thirty minutes at most. The temperature should be slightly lower than normal.
     With prolonged sweating, you will need to consume additional amounts of water.
     Be careful not to overstress your body in the sauna. When your body is overstressed, you will not sweat very well. If you feel clammy, end your sauna. Look for these symptoms: cold skin, dizziness, so sweating or nausea.
     After your first day’s sauna, relax; let your body cool down naturally then shower.
When you begin sweating profusely, this is a good sign. It tells you that you are detoxifying your body.
You will be amazed how quickly you will feel better. Your mind will be much clearer as soon as you begin excreting neurotoxins your body has accumulated.
