Natural body detoxification with the Infrared Sauna

The IR sauna has incredible detoxification powers and infrared is a totally natural body detoxification phenomenon.  You don’t need to swallow pills, start a stringent diet or use obscure patches or a detox product to clean out your body and start looking and feeling better.

One liter of sweat in an ordinary sauna contains approximately 3% toxins, in an infrared sauna this is 20% ! Analysis of sweat in an infrared sauna :

  • 80 to 85% water
  • Fat
  • Cholesterol
  • Acids
  • Natrium
  • Ammoniac
  • Heavy metals : lead – cadmium – nickel – copper – sodium

That is serious natural body detoxification, you will lose a lot of bad stuff during an infrared session.  Drink plenty of water before and after an IR session to help your body to get rid of all this unwanted material as well as keep you hydrated.

Human body fat starts to liquefy at 110 degrees Fahrenheit. When fat leaves your body through transpiration, it takes heavy metals along on the way out. The deep penetration of infrared energy in your skin makes this happen. This does not occur in a traditional sauna, only in an infrared sauna.

Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel, cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.


Cardiac health care and high blood pressure treatment in the infrared sauna.

Cardiac health care made easy,  you can improve your physical condition while you sit and relax. Everybody will think you work out.

The infrared energy penetrates deep into your body – up to 2, 3 inches deep. The energy is optimized so that your body absorbs up to 93% of this energy.  This deep penetration causes a heating effect deep in your muscles and your organs. Your body will react. It does this by increasing your pulse. Your elevated heart rate causes a training effect which will improve your physical condition.

Medical research confirms that the use of an infrared sauna causes a cardiac training effect. Your body wants to lower its temperature and tries to do this by raising your heart beat. If this isn’t enough to lower your temperature, your body uses yet another method, it makes you sweat.

Every gram of transpiration uses 0.586 Kcal.  Fair amounts of transpiration, up to half a liter is really no exception for an average person.  You are burning 300 Kcal, just by sitting in your relaxing infrared sauna, listening to your favorite music. This compares to running 2.5 to 3.5 miles!

Imagine the possibilities. This is also great for handicapped or disabled people who are concerned with cardiac health care.

Again take care, you should drink plenty of water to keep hydrated.  If you drink water, you don’t replenish the lost calories. This is important so I will repeat my statement.  If you drink water before and after your infrared session, you have nothing to worry about, except maybe looking for a smaller size of clothes to wear!
