Officially fall begins in late September. It is hard to believe it’s almost here! In the fall the air becomes crisp, the holiday’s approach and it’s a great time to review the many benefits of Far Infrared sauna therapy. Even I occasionally forget the many advantages of Far Infrared as I sometimes let life and all it’s many distractions get in the way of my daily sauna regimen. Most important to remember is that Far Infrared saunas remove most of the agents that cause disease; removal of toxins, found in our environment, water and air.
There are also myriad additional benefits associated with daily Far Infrared sauna use. Increasing your body’s core temperature for short periods, through Far Infrared sauna use, may offer dramatic improvements from everything such as overall better health to improving your athletic performance. This concept is ‘hyperthermic conditioning’ and definitely has multiple positive effects on your body, from increased endurance to the release of human growth hormone (HGH) and the growth of new brain cells. As your body is subjected to calculated amounts of heat stress, it gradually becomes acclimated, prompting many beneficial changes to occur in your body. Far Infrared saunas can significantly expedite the detoxification process. This occurs as your body’s tissues are heated several inches deep, which can enhance your natural metabolic processes.
Additionally, in terms of weight loss, Far Infrared sauna therapy burns between 200-600 calories an hour. It is such a terrific tool when you are trying to lose weight. Also, Far Infrared sauna therapy increases blood circulation and supplies oxygen to damaged tissues which aids in the reduction of chronic joint and muscle pain. German medical researchers concluded one session of Far Infrared sauna therapy greatly reduces blood pressure thanks to persistent peripheral vessel dilation. They also noted that blood viscosity was improved. When the normally smooth, firm lining of the arteries become thickened and roughened by deposits of fat, fibrin, calcium and cellular debris, it reduces their ability to expand and contract, slowing the movement of blood through narrowed channels. These conditions make it easier for blood clots to form. Best to reduce the risk of this by taking a daily sauna. Also, the gentle infrared heat opens pores that have been malfunctioning for years, eliminating toxic cosmetics, loosening dry outer skin and healing acne. Even scars begin to disappear after just a few sessions of Far Infrared therapy.
Far Infrared sauna therapy neutralizes blood toxicity and smooths the walls of arteries, capillaries and veins. It also allows for the healing of upper respiratory infections. It has proven to be outstanding in the ease of symptoms from asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, colds, flu, sinusitis and congestion as it clears inflammation, swelling and mucus clogged passages. Total detoxification is possible as the Far Infrared enhances white blood cell function, increasing immune response and the elimination of foreign pathogens and cellular waste products. When toxins are eliminated lymph node function improves and immune function strengthens.
Far Infrared sauna therapy is such a wonderful tool for your overall physical health. It is always good to remember to leave enough time in your day for a quick sauna. Remember Far Infrared therapy involves the use of Far Infrared rays to gently heal, soothe, stimulate and detox the physical body, as well as the mind.
Far Infrared rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate all layers of the human physical body, penetrating into the inner-most regions of the tissues, muscles and bone. So as fall approaches remind yourself that Far Infrared sauna therapy is not only relaxing it also benefits the mind, body and spirit!
