People who use infrared saunas as a lyme disease treatment will find their bodies overwhelmed by toxins. Unfortunately, they lack an effective means of removing these toxins from the body. This is where infrared saunas create the channel for detoxification, improves liver and kidney function and boosts the immune system.
People who suffer from Lyme Disease have a difficult time sweating. Additionally, those with Lyme Disease accumulate more toxins than healthy people. Also, unlike most people, Lyme Disease patients have overburdened kidneys and livers due to the stress sustained by inflammation and toxic burden brought about by chronic infection.
This can and will lead to overwhelming symptoms of poisoning by neurotoxins (which is what Lyme Disease facilitates). Detoxifying the body through the skin eases the burden off of the liver and kidneys because it allows toxins to bypass these key detoxification organs. Sweating allows toxins circulating in the blood to be excreted directly through the skin, removing the necessity for the liver and kidneys to process, store, and eliminate toxins. The vast surface area of the skin allows quick, efficient detoxification without placing a burden on other detoxification organs.
