The Art of Detox: Infrared Sauna

It’s unfortunate, in the world we live in today, how we can be exposed to so many toxins.  Toxins from pesticides, herbicides, plastics, heavy metals, mold, and personal hygiene products. Over time exposure to toxins can congest the lymphatic system and cause stress to many of our vital organs. The art of detox is so important in assisting the body’s natural elimination processes.

The lymphatic system is the body’s inner drainage system and a critical part of detox that is often ignored. The lymphatic system, along with the immune system, functions to protect the body from outside threats such as infections, viruses, and bacteria. When the lymphatic system becomes congested overtime it is not able to function optimally and protect the body from foreign invaders. The inability to sweat, varicose veins, edema, and a distended abdomen are all indications of a congested lymphatic system.

Infrared Saunas are different from traditional sauna treatments because they naturally detoxify the body by increasing sweat production from the inside out. Think about the process of a fever. A fever is the the elevation of body temperature and is a good sign that your body is actively fighting off infections.. Fevers activate the innate immunity which is essential in fighting off pathogens and foreign invaders. Infrared saunas can induce a fever fever on the body and assist in burning off infections. Because infrared saunas heat the body from the inside out they increase the body’s core temperature which allows the body to sweat at a deeper level where toxins found.

Infrared light waves are generated by heat lamps which make way into the tissues of the body and assist in cell and neuro regeneration. The infrared sauna helps your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals and environmental chemicals. You can also lose weight, relax, boost immunity and support a healthy Lymphatic System, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation, and purify your skin. Infrared Sauna can also increase circulation by stimulating vasodilatation.

We see many patients are IWG and one thing we learned over the course of our practice was that supplements and food changes alone are not always enough. The detox spa was created to expedite the detox process. Utilizing the detox spa and infrared sauna has made a considerable impact on patients health and healing process.
