Detoxification Therapies

Infrared Sauna

IMG

 

Unlike a typical moist and steamy sauna, an infrared sauna heats the body internally using radiant heat, rather than heating the air around you.

Sweating is good for your health/wellness. It is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Infrared sauna detoxification happens by heating the body directly, causing a rise in core temperature. This results in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.

It is commonly thought that sweat from traditional saunas is 95 to 97% water with salt making up a part of the rest. Far infrared saunas are believed to be more effective in moving toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a far infrared sauna only 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid.

"Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD."  - Dr. Rachel West
