Heavy Metal Detox: One of the Most Important Infrared Sauna Benefits

Posted by

One of the essential infrared sauna benefits is detoxifying heavy metals and other pollutants from the body.

Heavy metals like mercury, lead, and beryllium find their way into the body through the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink. This makes it almost impossible for people to avoid heavy metals. Fortunately, regular sauna use can significantly lower the amount of toxins in the body and prevent serious health consequences.

Common Heavy Metals in the Body

The consequences of heavy metal toxicity didn’t become well-known until recently. Now, more and more people are becoming aware of how widespread heavy metals are and their negative impact on  health. Here are the most common heavy metals in the environment:

  • Mercury

Mercury contamination has now become widespread throughout North America according to the United States Geological Survey. People can be exposed to mercury through fish, soil, wildlife, poor air quality, vegetables and fruits, and more.

  • Aluminum

Aluminum is one of the most abundant and useful elements on the planet, but it can be destructive inside the human body at high levels. Aluminum can be found in a wide range of things such as toothpaste, cooking trays, food packaging, antiperspirants, and cosmetics.  

  • Lead

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discovered that around 20% of children in the US suffered from worrying levels of lead concentrations in the blood.

Numerous sources contain lead, such as air, water supplies, and contaminated soils. Appetite loss, constipation, lethargy, and memory issues are just some of the health complications related to lead.

  • Cadmium

Carcinogenic is  highly-toxic and  enters the environment through industrial site discharges and illegal dumping. Even short-term exposure can lead to fevers, chills, and muscle aches.  If left untreated, severe cadmium contamination can lead to bone weakness, chronic bronchitis, kidney failure, pulmonary edema, and more.

The body is unable on its own to digest and get rid of heavy metals like these. Over time, they  work their way into the blood, soft tissues, and muscles to inevitably  cause health problems.

How Infrared Sauna Sessions Help Remove Heavy Metals from the Body

Science has found that sweating is one of the most effective ways to get rid of heavy metals. One of the safest and best ways to induce profuse sweating is sitting inside an infrared sauna.

The best infrared sauna in the market uses far-infrared light to provide a radiant source of heat. Instead of heating up the air like traditional saunas, the light rays penetrate through the fat, skin, and muscles right down to the cells. This process removes heavy metals in two main ways:

  • Intense sweat

Infrared heat dilates your pores and triggers an intense, detoxifying sweat. Most of this sweat will be water, but the trace of heavy metals will also be flushed out.

  • Increased heart rate

As heavy metals exit your body, the increased blood circulation replaces these toxins with oxygen and nutrients to restore health and proper function.

Over time, regular sauna users gain a stronger immune system, more energy, and sharper mental performance with regular detoxification from heavy metals.

Purify the Body through Gentle Infrared Heat

When you have an infrared sauna waiting for you at home, you don’t have to worry about all the toxins accumulated in the body throughout the day. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and let the heat do the rest.
