Clean from Within: How Infrared Saunas Help Rid Your Body of Toxins

Posted by

People say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but this age-old adage doesn’t necessarily tell the whole story. Before that apple gets to your fridge, it was grown in a farm where it was exposed to both chemical fertilizers and pesticides. And during transport from the farm to a market, it may have been exposed to countless sources of pollution.

Indeed, while you may think you’re living a healthy lifestyle—eating only the freshest food, exercising regularly—escaping toxins is nearly impossible. They’re in the food you eat, the air you breath, the fragrances you use, and just about everywhere you look.

A Serious Concern

Also, since toxins are essentially poisons, prolonged exposure to them can lead to serious health problems. According to a study by the British Medical Journal, 75% of most cancers are caused by lifestyle and environmental factors, including exposure to toxins. A study by the Columbia University School of Public Health echoes this finding, reporting that 95% of cancer cases are caused by diet and environmental toxicity.

Ridding the Body of Toxins

Of course, health issues caused by toxins develop over time, which means that they can easily be prevented by regular detoxification. Luckily, products such as home infrared saunas make detoxification easier.

What is an infrared sauna? Unlike traditional saunas, which heat the air inside the cabin, infrared saunas use infrared energy to directly warm the tissues of the body. This stimulates the body to sweat, which just so happens to be the body’s natural process for shedding toxins.

Indeed, sweating is one of the most effective ways of ridding the body of toxins. Unfortunately, people these days have settled into a sedentary lifestyle, rarely getting (or taking) the opportunity to “sweat it out”. By installing a sauna at home, one can have a relaxing and detoxifying experience anytime one wants.

Why Not Get a Standard Sauna Instead?

A standard sauna will make you sweat, too, so why should one opt for an infrared model? An infrared sauna—which is sometimes called a FAR infrared sauna unit—heats the muscles from the inside out. While a steam-based sauna is great for detoxifying water-based organs, it is not as effective in detoxifying organs that do not have a high water content, such as your lungs or kidneys.

If you would like to know more about infrared saunas, be sure to contact only trusted suppliers to receive the best equipment and prices available.
