Never before in history have people been exposed to such a great variety of toxic chemicals. More than 80,000 available in the U.S. have never been fully tested for their effects on our health. According to the EPA, toxic chemicals are responsible for up to 80% of cancer deaths. In my opinion, it’s important to reduce the toxic load on our bodies. A great way to do this is with near infrared sauna therapy.
I used Sauna therapy when detoxing my mercury poisoing and the they thyroid issue, Hashimoto’s, I developed because of the damage the heavy metals and other issues caused – it was very important to my detox routine. Basically, infrared sauna heats the body temperature several degrees above normal and the body attempts to reduce its temperature by driving blood to the surface and sweating. The heating, and the body’s response to heating, can produce many beneficial physiological effects.
Sweating can help flush toxins from the body. Did you know that prescription and over-the-counter drugs may remain in the body for 30 years or more? According to Lawrence Wilson, M.D., “Heating the body helps destroy bacteria, viruses and tumors. Sweating promotes the elimination of toxic chemicals, radioactive particles and other toxins. It also increases the skin’s ability to eliminate poisons.”
NASA research has found that the Near Infrared electromagnetic frequency band of energy penetrates deeply into the body and can have a healing effect on individual cells.
Why choose a Near Infrared Sauna instead of a Regular Sauna?
1. Infrared light is uniquely beneficial as it is 600nm – 950nm. The phototherapy benefits it provides are totally unique to this narrow band of the sunlight’s spectrum.
2. We only have any photoreceptors near infrared and visible red. The NIR (near infrared) light directly activates various cellular processes that promote cellular healing, detoxification, increased metabolism, and more.
3. NIR light is safe for the eyes and can heal cellular damage in the eyes.
4. Here are some of the healing benefits of NIR: alkalinization of the cells, nerve tissue regeneration, wound healing, increased collagen production, relaxation of the central nervous system, activation of heat-shock proteins, a newly recognised class of proteins that act as chaperones for immune bodies in the cells, bringing them to the toxin sites, so toxin elimination is more effective.
5. Ultra-low EMF.
DIY AT HOME SAUNA
The great thing about Near InfraRed is that it is so easy to make a DIY at home sauna!
See the image below to see how easy it is, as you see there is a dimond shaped structure with four bulbs that can hang from the shower.
All you then need is a comfy stool to sit in front of the bulbs and rotate your body around every five mins.
