WHY SWEAT? WHY AN INFRARED SAUNA?

One of the top health benefits of using an infrared sauna regularly is to promote natural detoxification.  We are exposed to toxins in our everyday life, and detoxification is the way in which our body naturally de-activates and eliminates these accumulated toxins. Promoting optimal detox pathways will help to reduce the impact this can have on our health.

The main organs and pathways that help detoxify our body every single day are our liver, kidneys, lungs, gut, lymphatic system and the skin. These pathways can become overloaded and impaired. When the liver becomes burdened, signs of toxicity can begin to show.

One of the ways we detox the body is through sweating. Unfortunately, most people are not sweating enough! We need to sweat every single day. Sweating is one of the safest ways to detox the body regularly. The more you sweat, the more toxins you can detox from your body as long as you are replacing with optimal fluid.

Research papers are accumulating on the benefits of infrared saunas for not only general health and wellbeing but specifically for toxin clearance and reducing pain and inflammation within the body.

An infrared sauna is different to a regular sauna as it uses light to create heat. It has the ability to use Far Infrared Technology, which is the longest wavelength to reach the deepest parts of our tissues where toxins are stored.  Our cells have a sophisticated biological system to utilise light and heat for repair and detoxification.
