I like to sweat. There, I said it. In my opinion, there is nothing better than a good sweat, unless it is chasing the ice cream truck down your street! I use Infrared Sauna to rid my body of unwanted toxins, to burn calories, and to increase my cardiovascular health. I had a traditional steam sauna in my prior home, and now have an Infrared Sauna. Both are remarkable, however, I really relax and unwind more, using the Infrared Sauna. I understand not everyone can afford to have this luxury, but the following will outline the inherent benefits. Infrared saunas help your body release several toxins, including heavy metals, like mercury, and lead, plus environmental chemicals. With infrared sauna technology, you can also lose weight, relax, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation, and purify your skin.
WHAT IS FAR INFRARED RADIANT HEAT?
Sunlight is a combination of visible light and invisible light. The seven colors of the rainbow are visible lights, and infrared rays and ultraviolet rays are invisible lights. Infrared rays are the healthiest, penetrate into your skin deeply and they dissolve harmful substances accumulated in your body. The Infrared Rays detox your body, revitalize your cells and metabolism.
Far infrared waves penetrate deep into our body for a deep heating action which allows for the body to activate the sweat glands. The sweat glands offer one of only a few mechanisms that the body has to eliminate toxins and since the skin is the largest organ in the human body it is apparently a very efficient means of elimination.
The sun is the primary source of radiant energy, but not all of this energy is beneficial. Although life needs energy from the sun, too much sunlight damages the skin. Far infrared heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.
For years, the healthcare industry recommended infrared heat lamps as a source of far infrared heat but the lamps were cumbersome, extremely hot and difficult to maintain at a constant temperature. Today, many healthcare professionals use far infrared heaters to treat a variety of diseases, throughout the world.
The far infrared rays consist of similar wavelengths as that which is emitted naturally by the human body. This is one potential explanation of why many feel energetically rejuvenated and balanced from contact with far infrared waves. It is also believed that far infrared waves help improve blood circulation and recovery from fatigue.
