Why Use A Far Infrared Sauna?
According to The Lymphatic Healing Center, Far infrared saunas have been around for more than 20 years, and are highly recommended by doctors as a safe way to sweat. Your body can safely burn up to 300 calories in just one 30-minute session. This weight can be regained through rehydration; the calories burned will not.
Far Infrared Saunas also help to raise your basal metabolic rate meaning you will burn calories at an elevated rate for hours after your session has finished. Doctors now recognize the many benefits of using Far Infrared Sauna. Some benefits include increasing metabolism, decreasing joint pain, relieving muscle spasms, increasing blood flow, burning calories, alleviating fibromyalgia symptoms, detoxification, relieves joint/muscle pain, reducing fat, burning calories, reducing stress, improving mood, clearing skin, enhancing immune defense, reducing Cellulite, removing Heavy Metals, reversing the aging process, promoting deep relaxation, improving energy, repairing Diabetic ulcers, promoting cellular renewal, and inducing profuse sweating.
The Far Infrared Sauna differs from the traditional sauna in that it heats the body directly rather than having to warm the air first. Like the sun warming the body on a cold winter’s day, there is no need for very hot air that can cause respiratory problems and dizziness. The infrared sauna has the ability to penetrate below the body’s surface up to 1.5 inches. It heats the body from the inside, traveling deep to organs, even cells. The cell is the smallest building block of the body and contains toxins much like tissues and organs. Once the cells are heated they begin detoxification, and so does the organs.
The Far Infrared Sauna also creates an artificial fever, tricking the body into believing there is infection or inflammation in the body. When the body detects fever, its immune cells work better, according to scientists from Infection Control Today. When the body thinks that it is under attack, it stimulates the Lymphatic System and the Immune System. This facilitates the body’s ability to eliminate harmful toxins from the body and strengthen the Immune response.
