(NaturalNews) The modern world is full of environmental toxins. It is estimated that there are over 80,000 toxic chemicals used regularly in the US. There are over 500 chemicals stored in our body, and the average individual has at least seven pesticides tested in their urine. It is imperative to have a daily detoxification lifestyle to get these unwanted toxins out of our system. Infrared sauna technology is an advanced detoxification strategy with remarkable health results.

The major detoxification organs in the body include the liver, kidneys, skin, respiratory system, gastrointestinal system and urinary tract. The major eliminatory processes include respiration, urination, defecation and perspiration. Due to the amount of toxins in our 21st century society, health is absolutely dependent upon optimal eliminatory channels. Infrared saunas help the body to maximize toxic elimination through perspiratory channels.

What is Infrared Technology:

Far infrared technology (FIR) is a non-invasive form of light therapy that penetrates the body as much as three inches. Optimal FIR wavelengths vary in size between 5.6 microns and 20 microns. This process heats muscle tissue and internal organs without heating the surrounding air. This helps the organs and tissues push toxins into the blood stream, where they can be eliminated through the perspiration process.

Infrared wavelengths have the ability to stimulate multiple pathways in the body. These pathways include liver detoxification metabolic pathways, kidney filtration and elimination and fat cell mobilization. It also kills off pathogenic organisms, improves the immune system, reduces stress and stimulates metabolism, which enhances healthy weight loss.

FIR technology can penetrate between 1 and 3 inches into the surface of the body. This has been shown to decrease the size of water clusters in the body, which gives them greater mobility and access to body tissues. This enhances cell membrane tone and functionality, which helps the cell to absorb nutrients and excrete toxins more effectively. This effect also improves circulatory patterns and toxin release through perspiration.

The FIR sauna has been shown to lower lactic acid levels, stimulate endorphins, kill pathogenic microorganisms and strengthen the immune system. It also detoxifies cells by vibrating ionized bonds, stops swelling and inflammation and improves blood and lymphatic circulation. The increase in core temperature results in improved microcirculation throughout the body, which increases oxygen delivery to the cells and tissues.

Difference between steam rooms and infrared saunas

Perspiration is one of the best ways to eliminate toxins from the body. While all saunas and sweat rooms help induce deep toxin-eliminating sweats, the unique elements involved with infrared technology allow one to sweat out a significantly greater amount of toxic debris.

Infrared sauna's heaters emit radiant heat which helps the body perspire at an average of 80% water and 20% waste and toxins. Traditional saunas using air and steam create a perspiration ratio of 97% water and 3% toxins. This research indicates that infrared saunas are seven times more effective at clearing out toxins than traditional saunas.

Protocols for using the infrared sauna

It is important for individuals not to overdo themselves in an infrared sauna but instead to allow it to gradually pull toxins. Most experts recommend the first session to be about 5 minutes and then to add 30 seconds per session until you reach 15-30 minutes. It essential to maximize hydration both before and after sauna usage. Also, a mineral and antioxidant-rich diet is extremely critical for healthy sauna usage and detoxification processes.

Most infrared saunas run at about 110-140 degrees Fahrenheit, while typical steam saunas are around 150-200 degrees. Following the sauna with a hot-cold cycled shower improves the detoxification process and closes down the pores, tones the skin and invigorates the body.
