Why infrared saunas are changing healthcare
Why are infrared saunas good for you? There are so many good reasons other than just Detoxing!
You will feel more relaxed and rested after you’re done, and the heat helps relieve sore muscles and improves your overall health and well-being. But if the high temperatures of a traditional sauna are just too much for you to handle, an infrared sauna may offer the benefits of a sauna without the extreme heat. Its so much more tolerable and has more benefits. The heat actually vibrates your cells and shakes free the toxins so that your cells can operate much more freely and efficiently. Less stress!
What are the other Awesome benefits of using an infrared sauna?
The benefits of using an infrared sauna can go on for quite a bit!
- Better sleep
- weight loss
- relief from sore muscles
- relief from joint pain such as arthritis
- clear and tighter skin
- improved circulation
- help for people with chronic fatigue syndrome
In European countries the movement towards infrared saunas started about 10 years ahead of the United States! These days you find them in many homes.
Some of the exciting news from studies:
- A small 10-person study found that people with chronic fatigue syndrome benefited from using an infrared sauna as part of an overall treatment.
- Another 10-person study found that infrared saunas helped decrease muscle soreness and increase recovery from strength-training sessions.
- According to one review, several studies have found that infrared light therapy saunas may help reduce blood pressure.Personally, I have experienced this.
- One of the most exciting studies showed people that took a IR Sauna 3-4 x/week, lost 4-5% of their body fat over a 5 week period.
The wide-spread (smaller) studies about the possible benefits of infrared saunas leaves the consumer (you) to engage and begin to realize these many benefits in your life. Prevent illness, sweat out those toxins, relieve that stress, energize your body with Infrared Light.
There are no reports of negative effects from an IR Sauna, beyond the cautions about any sauna experience. These include the possibilities of dehydrating, and potential dangers for those who are pregnant, have heart disease, or are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, among others.
The good news: Even if your sweat session doesn’t do all of the things it claims to do right away, at least it still feels good. Plus, it contributes to your overall health and well-being by helping you relax, loosening up stiff or tight muscles, reducing joint pain, and giving you some much needed time to yourself.
