Detoxification Without Effort:
This Gentle, Warming Treatment
Infrared energy is getting a lot more buzz these days, which comes as no surprise. We've all experienced the soothing effects of bright sunlight on a cold, wintry day. We feel this energy as it gets absorbed by anything it touches. It's comfortable, natural heat with proven regenerative effects.
What's so impressive about infrared saunas is that they take care of four of the biggest offenders that come with a cancer diagnosis: Toxins, stress, circulation, and pain. Managing all four is essential to a successful treatment/prevention regimen.
Detoxification: The key to revitalized health
We're not the first to figure this out. Saunas have been around for centuries, first invented by the Finns. In fact, the word sauna is an ancient Finnish word that refers to the traditional Finnish bathhouse. The Finns used the sauna to promote sweating—and more: It's a place to cleanse the mind and energize the spirit. Even today, saunas are a part of daily life for most people who live in Finland.
Infrared vs. traditional saunas
Traditional saunas use heat to raise the air temperature, which in turn heats the surface of the skin. They generally do this with conventional heat that approaches temperatures as high as 200 degrees Fahrenheit or more. The high temperatures induce sweating after a session of 10 to 15 minutes. It's a dry heat though, so most folks also like to toss water on the heating element inside a traditional sauna to raise the level of humidity.
Infrared sauna as a cancer therapy
The main question is whether far infrared heat works as a health tool. I think the strongest benefit comes from reducing the load of toxins in your body. Cancers that spread rapidly are hard to manage because their toxic load increases so quickly. That means constant detoxification is one of the most important things you can do, both to prevent and treat cancer.
Tips on buying your home infrared sauna
I find infrared saunas are more comfortable and seem to penetrate more effectively into my skin than do traditional saunas. The more advanced infrared saunas have been on the market for about 15 years and have clinical data to show health benefits. Full spectrum infrared saunas are the most recent advancement and emit near, mid and far infrared wavelengths for added benefits.
