The best, healthiest and most cost-effective way to ensure a great night’s sleep is the daily use of a far infrared sauna. Sleeplessness is a common malady. One of the effects of a daily far infrared sauna is a great night’s sleep. This one attribute was a bit of a surprise to me but has quickly become one of my favorites. It was immediate; happening after my very, first sauna. Normally, it takes me an hour to wind down prior to falling asleep. During the night I awaken many times, roll over and usually fall back asleep but many times I do not. After my first infrared sauna experience I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I fell asleep and then I actually slept through the night!
Enjoying a far infrared sauna is extremely relaxing especially when followed by a hot shower or bath. The gentle heat feels great and as your body relaxes and muscles loosen, daily stresses truly seem to melt away. There is a reason for this. The infrared heat causes endorphins to be released which in turn begins many processes such as healing, detoxing, de-stressing, revitalization, rejuvenation and relaxation. This happens as the infrared light penetrates into your body assisting it to efficiently flush toxins. Interesting that initially you may feel like nothing is happening as the heat is gentle and not that hot. Eventually you will notice perspiration forming and then shortly after that a truly effective sweat. This all adds up into an amazing night of refreshing sleep.
Far infrared sauna therapy induces calmness by relaxing the body. The reason for the feelings of refreshment and relaxation are due to the toxins breaking up then being released through perspiration and sweat. This purifies the body providing relief from fatigue. Also, if you are in pain infrared generally relieves everything from normal aches and pains to the deeper pain of arthritis, fibromyalgia even injuries. Pain certainly can keep you awake and the infrared heat soothes pain away. We all know it is simply impossible to sleep if you are in pain. Thus, pain reduction and even elimination also equals a great night of restful slumber.
Daily use of a far infrared sauna is associated with a great deal of varying benefits. 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. Called hyperthermic conditioning the body can enjoy its many positive side effects. These include the release of HGH, human growth hormone, elevated endurance and even the growth of additional brain cells. Your body gradually becomes accustomed to incremental heat stress which triggers many positive changes within. Also, far infrared heat waves aid in total detoxification. As your body’s tissues and organs heat up your metabolism quickens vibrating the toxins loose. Perspiration carries away these excess toxins.
There are so many additional benefits surrounding the use of far infrared. One is weight loss. Between 200 and 600 calories are burned each and every time you spend at least half an hour inside your sauna. So many of us need to lose weight even if only five to ten pounds. Infrared sauna therapy becomes another effective tool to access, in your health arsenal, while trying to maintain a healthy weight. Blood pressure is also regulated when using far infrared. This is due to increased blood circulation which supplies oxygen to your tissues and organs; blood viscosity is improved. When additional blood surrounds joints and muscles pain is reduced.
By enjoying a daily sauna you allow your arteries to naturally reduce the thick and rough spots inside. Through time our arteries retain fat, fibers, calcium and cellular debris. This inhibits the artery’s ability to expand and contract. These conditions invite blood clots. Infrared heat thins the blood, smooths arterial surfaces and allows for smooth flow. Far infrared waves are even beneficial to the body’s largest organ; your skin. The gentle heat allows pores to open and be cleansed from years of cosmetic and product buildup. It allows for hydration and the outer layer of skin to heal from acne and even scarring.
