(NaturalNews) There are plenty of detoxification strategies available today, but one very simple and enjoyable way is through the use of an infrared sauna. When used appropriately, it is one of the simplest and safest ways to rid your body of various toxins, including heavy metals.
Here are some great reasons to get heated up (if the winter was not enough of an excuse) and refreshed in an infrared sauna.
Eliminate toxins more efficientlyUnlike traditional sauna's that use air and steam, infrared saunas emit a radiant heat that is absorbed directly into the body. This makes it much more efficient in removing toxins with an estimated 80% water and 20% waste and toxin removal, as opposed to 97% water and 3% waste and toxins in a traditional steam sauna.
Infrared saunas are non-invasive and can penetrate as much as 3 inches into the body, which heats muscle tissue and internal organs. This will help eliminate all kinds of toxins including medications, alcohol, nicotine, and other carcinogens in the blood stream.
Eliminate a cold or flu quicklyIf you feel like you are on the verge of getting sick, popping into an infrared sauna for 15-20 minutes each day can help you knock it down before it decides to take over. The radiant heat will stimulate circulation, increase the production of white blood cells, and stimulate your immune system to mount a vigorous attack against unwanted invaders.All of this action will create a less than hospitable environment for germs to grow, and encourage them to die off.
Relax muscles and lose weightSince an infrared sauna can penetrate as much as 3 inches deep into your body, relaxing tight muscles and easing minor aches and pains becomes a more simple task. Also, if you suffer from conditions such as arthritis, infrared heat from a sauna can help reduce stiffness and inflammation.
Even though you can lose weight due to the plentiful sweating in a sauna, much of this will be put back on when you rehydrate (which is extremely important to do before and after a session in the sauna). However, since infrared saunas are able to penetrate the skin more deeply and stimulate the metabolic system, one can expect to burn anywhere from 200-600 calories in a half hour session. This extra boost can help you burn extra calories while you literally sit and relax.
Create healthier and more beautiful skinInfrared saunas can also create healthier and more beautiful skin by eliminating toxins out of your system that can be responsible for certain skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. By getting to the root of the problem, over time this can be a permanent fix, rather than a temporary one like a facial.Also, infrared saunas can improve skin tone and reduce signs of aging by stimulating better circulation, blood flow, and increased collagen production, all which will improve the look of your skin.
Of course, before you begin any regular sauna routine, you should consult with your doctor to make sure it is fine for you. Also, make sure to wipe off excess sweat and shower after a regular session in the sauna, to prevent reabsorption of any toxins that are being eliminated through your sweat.
Of course, an infrared sauna is just one part of a good detoxification routine. To get the whole gamut of a comprehensive and efficient detox, check into Best Ways To Detox Correctly and see Inexpensive Easy Detox.
