How do you feel about sweating? Some would say that sweat bothers them, while others enjoy hitting a gym or running few miles out in the open range. We agree, that sweat can be unwanted and uncomfortable at times. But in truth, sweating is one of the body's most natural way of eliminating toxins, therefore making it a crucial part of detoxification. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins. In fact, sweat can become your best friend once you understand its purpose. Indeed, it is beneficial on so many different levels. What if I tell you that by increasing your workout routine combined with sauna session, you will decrease your sweat in uncomfortable situations or when nervous?! It's true. By implementing a regular sweat session, your body will release more toxins through sweat and balance your own body's pH, thus decreasing the uncomfortable smelly sweat you accrue in business meetings or during an evening date. Have you ever experienced a vigorous workout session, after which you felt absolutely revigorated, refreshed, relaxed, happy and you just knew did let go of so much negativity and toxic waste released through your skin?! It's a fantastic feeling, isn't it? So don't feel embarrassed when you sweat during a workout or sauna session. Don't sweat it… In fact, we mean…"Sweat it all out!"
Stress is the leading cause of premature aging, cancer, heart illness, depression, fatigue, high blood pressure, and so many more. We tend to overwork and then quickly run out of our energy levels, so our bodies tap into a reserve located in adrenals. The “fight or flight" response kicks in, and we are on our way to an emergency room, probably with a heart attack. Current society's standard way of “living" is surviving on sugar and caffeine, a design that is programmed to work ourselves to our limits, while increasing profits for the pharmaceutical companies. These guys are the bad guys... they make money only on those who are sick and dying. The large pharma gets to be paid and you are back to work, trying to get yourself another heart attack…..Seriously….Why giving them the profits when you can start taking care of yourself and become healthy, happy and full of energy?!
Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body's level of cortisol, your body's primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress. Don't forget that nutrition, exercise and proper detoxing can help you live a long and happy life.
If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles. Far infrared heat can be an excellent solution to any chronic pain. When infrared heat enters your tissues, the blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster. All of this supports a maximum healing, pain relief and regeneration of a tissue.
Oh the sweet tooth…! Or the salty one? Either or, you are in for a treat…really. There is not an easy way to shed the pounds in the most healthy way, as it is with infrared sauna. The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. It's a metabolic boost of an enormous proportions. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. An article, titled Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories. But don't think you keep going ahead with that extra chocolate cake each day...
