Benefits of Infrared Sauna
Did you know the Skin is an organ? Did you know it is our largest organ?
The main function of our skin is to act as a barrier to protect our bodies from the outside world. It also functions to retain body fluids, protect against disease, eliminate waste products, and regulate body temperature. In order to do these things, the skin must work with all the other systems of our body, each of which has a role to play in maintaining the internal conditions that a human body needs to function properly.
Sweating Is Detoxification!
While most of us do not enjoy sweating and may go to lengths to avoid it, the act of perspiring is extremely important to our health.
Your skin is a major organ of elimination, but many people do not sweat on a regular basis. This is why repeated use of an infrared sauna slowly restores skin elimination, which can help reduce your toxic load quite significantly.
The benefits of sweating have been understood for centuries. It has been valued as a form of cleansing in several cultures including Roman baths, Aboriginal sweat lodges, Scandinavian saunas, Native American sweat lodges, and Turkish baths.
Toxins are excreted in sweat, including arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, flame retardant chemicals, and bisphenol-A (BPA).
What are the Health Risks?
There are no health risk associated with sauna use unless you have a blood clotting disorder or an advanced stage of lupus or multiple sclerosis or other nervous system disease that has affected the body’s natural ability to cool itself. You can never overdose on Infrared light as your body is only capable of absorbing enough for each cell and then it passes on harmless out of the body. Other risks include Dehydration.

Create an Infrared Himalayan Salt Sauna by adding tiles to your session and experience the benefits of both worlds! The heat in the Salt Sauna releases the negative ions captured from natural salt. When you inhale, the ions are carried into the lungs. The negative ions fortify the lungs and are absorbed by the bloodstream. The cleansing and purifying negative ions are then delivered to every part of the body. The heat drains the stress from your body, while the negative ions counteract the effects of pollutants. Salt has a cleansing and rejuvenating effect on the skin. It aids in clearing up skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Research has demonstrated that patients with asthma and chronic obstructive bronchitis show a reduction in disease causing microbes. As well, it helps eliminate excess mucus, regulates the immune system, provides anti- bacteriological and anti-inflammatory relief, and is a healthy anti-aging therapy
Your body consists of over 99 percent water molecules, but as explained by Dr. Gerald Pollack, the water in your cells is not just regular water, but highly structured water with special properties. The infrared rays from the sauna (and the sun) will help structure the water in your body and may be one of the reasons why regular use has been associated with decreased cardiac deaths.
Structured water is more viscous, dense, and has a negative charge. It can hold energy, much like a battery, and deliver energy too. A key ingredient to create this highly structured water is infrared light. One reason why infrared saunas make you feel so good is because your body’s cells are deeply penetrated by infrared energy, which builds and stores structured water. The same goes for light therapy, spending time in the sun, and laser therapy.
Our Infrared Sauna Offers Color Therapy, Too!
We are energy! Color is energy! Different colors have different frequencies and respond differently when applied to our bodies. We perceive color not only visually, but also by absorbing it subconsciously through our skin. When penetrating into our body, color produces chemical reactions that affect the function of various organs and systems.
Our Infrared sauna can focus on one color or continually cycle through all colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and White.

Sauna Bathing Can Be an Excellent Addition to a Healthy Lifestyle
Virtually everyone is exposed to heavy metals and toxic chemicals today, and using an infrared sauna can be a helpful method to promote detoxification. Its dry, warming energy is highly compatible with the human body, and by heating your tissues several inches deep, it helps enhance cellular energy production and facilitate healing. Furthermore, viruses and toxin-laden cells are weaker than normal cells and tolerate heat poorly, so raising your body temperature helps heal infections quicker.
A major organ of elimination, most people’s skin is very inactive. Many simply do not sweat enough. Repeated use of the sauna slowly restores your body’s ability to eliminate toxins through your skin. Just be sure to select a low-EMF version if you’re considering buying one, or you might risk canceling out its benefits.
Also remember that saunas work best when integrated into a comprehensive healthy lifestyle program, which includes eating a healthy diet – ideally organic and/or locally grown without pesticides – exercising, and avoiding toxic exposures. Last but not least, if you’re having trouble sleeping, using the sauna shortly before bedtime can be enormously beneficial, as it tends to make you drowsy and facilitates falling asleep quickly.
