New technology has brought to light the detoxification benefits of using a far infrared sauna. Whether you use the personal, portable infrared sauna, a multi-person pre-manufactured sauna or you build your own custom infrared sauna; research has shown that there are extended health benefits from the use of this device.
Detoxification comes by the way of increased perspiration due to the deep heating nature of the far infrared sauna. While a conventional sauna, one that you would most likely find in a gym or near a swimming pool, heats the air around you; a far infrared sauna actually heats objects, causing a more direct heat that has a much cooler atmosphere. This is why it is much easier to breathe when using an infrared sauna as opposed to a steam based sauna; the air around you does not need to be heated for you to receive the warming benefits.
In a study done by American researchers they discovered that the sweat produced from a conventional sauna was around 95% water. In the same study the results pointed out that sweat derived from the use of a far infrared sauna was approximately 80% water with the remaining percentages being a mix of cholesterol, toxic heavy metals and an array of other unwanted chemical and mineral substances that can prevent our immune system from functioning properly, therefore robbing us of a much more healthy existence. These toxins and other problematic substances are thus removed with greater efficiency when using a far infrared sauna.
Far infrared saunas are said to be up to 7 times more effective than a conventional sauna in regards to detoxification. Toxins that are stated to be removed include sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, lead, mercury, nicotine, alcohol, ammonia, sulfuric acid an other environmental and man made toxins. There is a debate amongst professionals and researchers as to what extent mercury is removed due to the process using a far infrared sauna, but many doctors and researchers sing the praise of the healing properties of this hypothermic therapy and the health benefits derived from the use of it. In all the research that has been done, the general results have been astonishingly clear; even if a few of the precise details are still under debate.
The use of a far infrared sauna has been shown to remove harsh, harmful toxins from your body and can help afford you a healthier life starting today.
