If you can find one near you – it’s worth it. One of the best way of eliminating toxins and reducing fat is via sweat. And how nice to be horizontal whilst doing so.
What: Infrared saunas help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals.
Detoxing – Infrared waves matches the frequency of the water in our cells, causing toxins to be released into the blood stream and excreted through sweat.
Skin Purification – Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in healthier skin.
Immune support – Increase in body temperature, which boosts the production of infection-fighting white blood cells.
Weight loss – Infrared therapy helps eliminate excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat from the body.
How: It uses up energy to burn fat because at 43oC fat becomes water soluble and can be dissolved and disposed of by sweating. Increased blood circulation caused by sweating stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins and waste. If you were new to infrared saunas, I would recommend starting out with 4-minute sessions at 70-80oC, and slowly working your way up to 15 to 30minute sessions.
