Detoxification is the single biggest reason people are interested in infrared saunas. In famed Detoxification book, Detoxify or Die by Sherry Rogers M.D., she explains how infrared saunas go about detoxifying the body:

“Far infrared wavelengths decrease the size of water clusters [in the body], giving them greater mobility and penetration in and out of body tissues. For it is when these hyperactive or energized water molecules move in and out of cells that they also carry toxins that previously were stuck. FIR energy actually causes a resonance dance between the water and chemical molecules to mobilize and unite them.” These combined molecules are then moved out of the body through the breath (exhalation), through urine and feces and… sweat! (Rogers M.D., 2002, pg. 218).

The process of storing these toxins is called bioaccumulation. Toxins come in the form of drugs, pollutants, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals and poisonous substances, to mention just a few!

So what do toxins do to you?

When they are absorbed into your body, toxins interact with enzymes and confuse cellular receptors. This does not allow for normal cellular function, as the cell is confused by the toxin and its electrical receptivity is off sync, throwing off your homeostasis. This is dangerous because we are made of cells that need to reproduce. Each cell has a job and it can’t function properly when toxic.

Documented illnesses due to toxicity include cancers of every organ system in the body, as well as leukemia, liver disease, pulmonary and cardiovascular damage, anemia and blood changes, nervous system disorders, immune system damage, psychological damage, reproductive and fertility impairment, and kidney dysfunction.

Toxins are stored in adipose tissue—i.e., fat cells. There are many chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives that exist today that didn’t exist 100 years ago, and the body has no natural reaction to these toxins. They simply accumulate in the body until it’s too late. But there is a way to get rid of them—sweat!

“The bottom line is that sweat is the only proven method for getting the most damaging toxins out of the body. There are no drugs, no surgery, no chelation, nor other detoxification methods with before and after measurements proving that unwanted chemicals like PCB’s and pesticides were eliminated.” (Rogers M.D., 2002, pg. 218).

When the right infrared wavelength is absorbed by the body it will cause your cells to vibrate at what’s called resonant frequency.”

Resonant frequency is the tendency of a system to oscillate with greater amplitude at some frequencies than others. When the body absorbs infrared in the 6.0 microns range your cells begin to vibrate—toxins are shaken free of your adipose tissue (fat cells) and are then released through your lungs, small intestine (excretion), urine and through your integumentary system (your skin). After exposure in the infrared sauna environment your skin becomes highly permeable, and the blood vessels dilate to allow more blood to the surface to cool your body. Sweating is the main mechanism to cool your body!

Millions of microscopic sweat glands are infused with fluid from the blood, which then release and empty to your skin’s surface, thereby flushing the releasing toxins and heavy metals out of your body. This is the major way how an infrared sauna contributes to health through detoxification. 

It is my belief that producing any sort of sweat will do this—by way of a hot tub, exercise, steam, traditional or infrared sauna. However, the method that is the easiest of these options to sustain a sweat over a 30+ minute period is easily an infrared sauna. This is because of the lower air temperature, which allows you a more prolonged, comfortable experience. The more sweat, the more water you drink the more toxins you excrete.

Toxins can definitely damage your body. Sometimes they act alone, and sometimes they cooperate with other disease causing factors, which can be fatal over time. The human body is designed to recognize and remove toxins, however, you need to know how to help yourself:

• Reduce your exposure to exogenous and endogenous toxins when possible. Basically avoid plastic at ALL costs.

• A healthy diet is one way to reduce the amount of toxins you absorb.

Help your body get the support it needs to clear out toxins that enter your system. If you think you have a high level of toxins or heavy metals in your body you can visit your doctor and do a blood or urine test. You can test how much lead is in your body fairly easily through a urine test. While not always the case, the more lead in your body the more other heavy metals you are carrying as well.

Regular infrared sauna use is a proven way to help rid your body of toxins and heavy metals accumulated over time.
