"The best way to get rid of heavy metals and pesticide residues? The infrared saunas. It has been known for decades that sweating is a wonderful way to get rid of stored chemicals, including heavy metals. In fact, sauna is one of the detoxification procedures used in the environmental units in Dallas (Dr. William Rea) and North Charleston (Dr. Allan Lieberman) where the sickest of folks go to heal. But many people, myself included, never could tolerate a sauna. We felt weak, sick, fast heart rate, faint, dizzy, headachy, or just miserable. Thanks to improved technology, the infrared sauna is tolerated much better, because it uses a heat energy that penetrates the tissues better, allowing an overall lower temperature to be used."

Detoxification with Far Infrared Saunas
Detoxification can be defined as "the process of reducing the buildup of various poisonous substances in the body". Because the far infrared sauna wavelength penetrates the entire surface of the body up to two inches, a thorough cleansing can take place. Far infrared sauna therapy is now being used as one of the main adjunctive therapies at many healing retreats and detoxification centers around the world. Patients and clients report that using the far infrared sauna is easy, noninvasive and that the experience of using an infrared sauna just feels good, like going to a high end spa.
By heating the body directly with far infrared heat, toxins are mobilized from the fat cells, here they are stored. The infrared sauna increases circulation which, in turn, aids in the final elimination of these chemicals through perspiration and the three other organs of elimination.
Today, unfortunately, we do not perspire the way that our ancestors did. Their lifestyles could be very rugged and required strenuous daily tasks just to stay alive. Our bodies were designed to sweat a good amount each and every day in order to maintain good health. Adding to that fact, we are now exposed to 80,000 chemicals that our greatgrandparents never were. The toxins that we are exposed to each day come from the air, our water, our food, cosmetic products we may use and even our clothing and bedding. When these chemicals are held in our body they build up to what is called a “toxic burden" which can actually cause disease and shorten life. Surprisingly, many women unaware of these dangers, put over 500 chemicals on their faces everyday!
Toxins have been linked to many diseases. In 2010, the United States, President's Cancer Panel provided strong confirmation that exposure to toxic chemicals is an important and under-recognized risk factor for cancer; as reported by:
Bill Moyers, in a PBS special; “Trade Secrets" outlined the widespread prevalence and dangers of toxins in our world."
Yet, there is an answer The Far Infrared Sauna. The analysis of sweat produced in a far infrared sauna has shown a composition of 80 to 85% water, with the remaining 15 to 20% comprised of sodium, trace minerals, fat soluble toxins, sulphuric acid, uric acid, ammonia, cholesterol and heavy metals such as lead, cadmium and mercury. One study showed levels 6 times the levels of heavy metals found in normal perspiration. These toxins concentrate, in large part, just under the skin in the subcutaneous layers of the body.
Far Infrared sauna therapy is an effective method of removing these toxins, because the far infrared easily penetrates to the required depth, just under the surface, to target these specific layers. The core temperature of the body is also increased at the same time which increases perspiration to aid the detoxification process. Far Infrared sauna therapy can also help to reset the thermoregulation centers of the body that may be underperforming due to a toxic condition. This will help to further stimulate excretion of toxins from the body by an increase in perspiration.
Another area of concern Toxins have also been associated with an inability to lose weight. The term obesogen was coined by scientists and described as: foreign chemical compounds that disrupt normal development and balance of lipid metabolism; “wiki". This in turn can lead to obesity as normal weight loss/gain metabolism malfunctions due to the effect of toxins. After a certain level of detoxification has occurred and normal weight is achieved, the infrared sauna can help to burn calories and increase the metabolic rate to keep pounds off.
Regular infrared sauna use has been shown to increase immune function, reduce stress, improve cardiovascular function, and help alleviate pain. Naturally, it is important to drink more water when using an infrared sauna to replace water lost through sweating. A well hydrated body is essential for good health. Scientific analysis has shown that perspiration in an infrared sauna contains 56 times more toxins, fat and impurities than normal perspiration.
