No one on this planet is free from toxins, Our bodies have become dumping grounds for toxic compounds that invade our air, water, and soil, even if you try and do all of the right things:exercising routinely, eating organic, drinking plenty of water, getting quality sleep, keeping our bodies clean is still a struggle. Infrared saunas are the super-hero’s in detoxification.
We are all full of toxic substances, but most people don’t realize how toxic we are. Industrial dumping and polluting have resulted in us harboring 700 chemicals on average in our bodies. 700! Babies today are born with about 70 chemicals on average already in their bodies. Luckily for us, advances in technology have allowed us to take detox one step further with the advent of infrared saunas.
For most people they do not realize that they are toxic until they start getting symptoms. However don’t wait until you start experiencing symptoms to make a move. Infrared saunas are one of the best ways to detox your body and its the only way to get certain toxins out of your body.
How does infrared heat help release toxins?
The two major components are HEAT and SWEATING.
Heat has many benefits on the body when you heat the body. With infrared saunas you are raising your bodies core temperature, when you raise the core temperature you increase the blood flow to the areas being heated. With this increase in blood flow, you get an increase in circulation, this increase in circulation is so important to detoxing, it gets the blood moving around the body, which in turn increases oxygen, nutrients, and helps increase your antibodies and other immune cells to that area. This increase in circulation also allows your body to “grab” toxins and debris in those areas and pull it out of your system!
Sweating is the body’s most natural way to detox. For example, when you are sick you get a fever, well this is the body’s natural defense mechanism. Heating the body assists with the functioning of the immune system. It also disables many microorganisms that don’t like heat such as Lyme disease and parasites. This is a huge benefit to using an infrared sauna, it activates the heat shock proteins in the body which are little proteins that scavenge out trouble and kill off the weak damaged cells that need to be killed off, they will even go for cancer cells. Sweating also lets your largest organ, your skin be activated, this means that toxins will be moving out of your skin. And one problem today for most people is that their skin is all clogged up. So, when you start your sauna sessions, you will find that you don’t sweat as much in your first few session since your skin is clogged up with toxins. Your body has to get use to it and as it does, you will sweat more and more. Your skin will be activated and start to function properly. It unclogs, it wakes up and remembers what is supposed to be doing.
So do your body a favor, start sweating today.
