Infrared Saunas have a wide range of benefits, including detoxification. Research tells us that increasing body temperature by 2-3 degrees, 3-4 times per week is an effective protocol for detoxification. Thankfully, alternative medicine widely embraces sauna detox for treatment and researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxin build-up.
The reason that we chose to purchase our Full-spectrum Infrared Sauna (NIR, MID and FAR infrared) from Sunlighten Saunas is due to the amount of scientific data that they can provide on the effectiveness of their products. Check out the research portion of the Sunlighten website for more information.
Renowned detoxification expert Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt suggests using far infrared saunas in heavy metal detox protocol. He states that infrared mobilizes specific toxins in deeper tissues making infrared saunas an effective solution for toxin removal.
A Canadian study confirmed that toxic elements were found in blood, sweat and urine. The study found that many toxic elements, including nickel, lead, bismuth, manganese, aluminum, cobalt, chromium, uranium, thallium, arsenic, mercury, copper and selenium. appeared to excrete more through sweat than blood or urine.
The researchers also reported some toxic elements hide in tissue and come out in sweat, not blood serum. They also found that infrared sauna appears to be more effective at releasing for bismuth, cadmium, chromium, mercury, and uranium compared to regular sauna or exercise. You can find a deeper explanation of this study HERE.
A build up of Environmental toxins can affect energy, stamina, pain, insomnia, obesity, mental health and more. Our liver, kidneys and skin naturally clear toxins through perspiration, respiration and elimination. Regular infrared sauna use supports and enhances your body’s ability to do this.
Infrared is very effective at making you sweat while still leaving the overall air temperature comfortable. Because up to 80% of the heat in an Infrared sauna penetrates your body rather than the air, infrared Sauna users develop a more vigorous sweat at a lower temperature. This can make sauna experience much more enjoyable, especially for people who are are sensitive to heat.
