"The largest organ in the human body is also the most effective in utilizing the healing benefits of Far Infrared Therapy. Covering over 20 square feet (two square meters), the skin is composed of two main layers, the epidermis and the dermis. The epidermis layer is continually replaced as new cells are being pushed to the surface. The lower layer, the dermis, contains sweat glands, hair follicles, blood vessels and nerve endings. Blood vessels deliver oxygen and nutrients up to the outer level of the skin and also functions in temperature regulation. Our skin is our most visible organ and is considered an indicator of our general health. Many skin conditions have been shown to dramatically improve with the regular use of Far Infrared. With skin conditions I've noticed with far infrared sauna therapy it can be very effective for patients who are dealing with conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or acne. FIRT supports the body's ability to heal on its own because you're eliminating through the skin more effectively. You're also helping with the inflammatory response that the skin is often suffering from resulting in fewer and less severe outbreaks."

Skin Conditions and Far Infrared Sauna Therapy
The deeply penetrating infrared heat produced in our saunas, helps to encourage the growth, development and maintenance of the body's circulatory and integumentary system; (skin, nails, hair). This increased level of blood circulation nourishes the skin by bringing oxygenated blood and nutrients to the surface as well as carrying away waste products. Together with infrared heat's super cleansing effect, users have seen a noticeable improvement in skin texture, complexion and tone. Many report that their skin feels more pliable, youthful and healthy overall.
The use of far infrared saunas have been reported to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, and help reduce scarring. It has also been postulated that these improvements in skin conditions from using the infrared sauna may also be due to the connection between the inflammatory response and toxins.
“Simply put, autoimmune diseases are conditions where the body's immune system attacks its own tissues rather than a foreign molecule like bacteria. This happens when something confuses the immune system. Increasingly, that “something" appears to be the enormous load of environmental toxins to which we are all exposed."
Dr Mark Hyman MD, one of the foremost health experts states
This could be the reason that people have been finding relief from these many disorders using infrared saunas. When the body is freed of toxins it is able to return a more normal state of health and quits attacking itself. It could be that simple. Beauty specialists in Europe and North America regularly incorporate daily infrared sauna sessions in programs specifically designed to reduce cellulite and improve skin health. The radiant infrared heat of the Saunaguru far infrared saunas warms three times as deeply as conventional saunas and aids in the break down and release of stored fat and toxins through the skin. It has been shown to be effective at reducing cellulite and promoting smoother, healthier skin.
