What About Wound Healing

Lose Weight, Feel Great & Detoxify

Written by Christopher Kiggins

Near infrared heals wounds faster

It was necessary for me to visit our local Dermatologist before Christmas. He told me the story behind why he decided to purchase a Far Infrared sauna. True story. Apparently one of his patients, a middle-aged woman, was being treated for severe sun damage on her face. 

Eventually it became necessary to remove a cancerous lesion from her forehead. The incision would be about a quarter inch deep and about the size of a half dollar. The surgery went well, the patient was told how to care for the wound and the doctor told her to return every week for four weeks in order to check on her progress.

She returned the first week and was doing well – even healing better than expected. By the third week her wound was healing so fast that the doctor asked her what else she was doing that accelerated her improvement so quickly. She told him her secret weapon was her Far Infrared sauna. He asked about it, bought his own unit for this office and still, to this day, offers it to his patients in need of any healing needed on their skin. 

Far Infrared heat is wonderful for the healing and repair of wounds. Far Infrared sauna therapy has been shown to provide a variety of health benefits to their users – useful for detoxification, reducing blood pressure, slowing the aging process, and also the advanced healing of skin lesions and wounds.

Infrared saunas are a healthy innovation in heat-based therapy, and are also a wonderful way to de-stress and relax. Also, the technology in the Far Infrared sauna is capable of boosting cell regeneration – your wounds, cuts, and scars will heal more rapidly with the gentle, warm infrared light. In our bodies, the different types of tissue and cells (many having different compositions) all have individual light absorption characteristics. 

Because your skin has high levels of blood and water content, it absorbs red light more easily than calcium and phosphorus. Because your skin isn’t scattering the red light, it makes use of the benefits it provides. The light from the infrared provides your skin cells with added energy to speed up cell regeneration. Basically, it gives your body the resources to quickly heal skin damage.

Far Infrared sauna therapy also slowly and efficiently restores toxic elimination through the skin. The skin is our largest organ and a major eliminative channel. In most people, it is inactive, congested and toxic. Sun exposure, use of synthetic clothing, bathing in chlorinated water and exposure to hundreds of chemicals afflict the skin. 

Add to that damage and even skin cancer from the sun and you can see why infrared light and heat would profoundly affect your skin. Excessive sympathetic nervous system activity and emotions such as fear, anger and guilt cause blood to be withdrawn from it’s surface, contributing to the skin’s inability to heal properly.

Far Infrared sauna therapy strongly supports your body’s ability to allow your skin to heal wounds and grow newer, healthier tissue. Cell growth is increased and wound size is decreased. Infrared light and heat are truly wonderful for healing your body’s largest organ; your skin.
