In the following information you will learn why use an infrared sauna, and why now. Whether you have specific health concerns or you are delving into alternative health this will leave you undoubtedly reassured that an infrared sauna is a must in not only your home but every home
Far Infrared heat is a very beneficial invisible ray from the sun that all living things need to survive. The waves penetrate into a cellular level, which activates sweat glands. Since the skin is the largest organ in the human body it is one of the best ways to eliminate toxins (through sweating). These rays have the same frequency as water molecules, which resonate at 9.4 microns, or smack in the middles of the far-infrared wavelength. This causes your water molecules to vibrate and literally shake off those toxins.
Since the human body already emits infrared no contact or medium between the two bodies is needed for the energy transfer. Because the wavelength of these rays is able to penetrate deep into the muscle at a cellular level it is able to raise our body’s core temperature from the inside out creating "systemic hypothermia" Also known as an artificially induced fever. The ancient Greek doctor Parmenides once stated, "Give me a chance to create a fever and I will cure any disease"
The sun has many amazing health benefits for your body. Unfortunately because of the depleted ozone layer, many of the sun's rays can be very harmful to the human body. This unfortunately makes the sun something for us to avoid, instead of something for us to submerge ourselves in for all of its healing properties. Imagine if you could have access to all the sun’s healing rays on a daily basis without any of the dangers. Well, that's exactly what the infrared sauna does.
The heater panels of these units are designed to reproduce a specific bandwidth of light energy that perfectly matches the exact frequency at which the human body emits and absorbs the maximum amount of light energy. (7-14 microns) .. much like your TV being tuned to a certain channel.
Traditional vs. Infrared Saunas
The first technology devised to deliver infrared heat in these units was the ceramic rod. This was an incredible break through for the sauna industry and every infrared sauna had them. However, ceramic heaters weren't without their pitfalls. Ceramic heaters are composed of glass rods, which can heat an entire unit, but have to work so hard to get there they become extremely hot.
The user had to sit directly against the ray-emitting heaters during their sessions this could become extremely uncomfortable. The second downfall was their limited surface area. These heaters were so small, they may treat your spine, but what about the rest of your body? This is an inferior/outdated system, and the older-day saunas using this technology have been surpassed by better and more modern technology.
Standard Carbon Heaters:
Out of demand for a more effective way of delivering infrared therapy, came the technology of Carbon‐Based heating panels. The carbon heater technology is used in the new era carbon based units. These new carbon heaters solved both of the downfalls of ceramic heaters; surface area and hot spots. This new carbon technology enabled the heat to be delivered evenly through a large flat panel instead of a small rod.
Since this new technology has a 10x larger surface area than its predecessor, it is able to deliver over 10x the healing rays into your body. To visualize this, on a much smaller scale, try the following. Put a pencil besides a napkin (get the picture), the pencil represents the older ceramic heaters and the napkin represents the new carbon heaters. As you can visualize, the carbon heaters have a much larger surface area, which equates to more infrared rays into your body.
It’s True! Weight Loss is one of the many benefits of regular use. Infrared Heat is Healthy, Natural and a Safe Therapy for all living beings. Weight Loss is achieved through the use of a far infrared sauna by increasing the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands, which produces a High Calorie Burn. Sweating is directly linked to Weight Loss.
As your body works to cool itself during a session in an infrared sauna, there is a substantial/beneficial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Your blood flow may rise from the normal 5 – 7 quarts per minute to as much as 12 – 13 quarts per minute, which is a Real Cardiovascular Workout! You can burn up to 600 calories in a single session of usage.
Health Benefits for the Infrared Sauna are:
• Assists weight loss and increases metabolism
- Pain relief
- Muscle relaxation
- Accelerates the breakdown of fat and cellulite
- Promotes skin tone, elasticity, pore cleansing and healing of skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis
- Accelerates wound healing from injuries and surgeries and reduces scar formation
- Passive cardiovascular conditioning effect: enhances oxygen and nutrients to deep tissues
- Regulates blood pressure
- Useful in athletic conditions to warm muscles before, and after activity
- Reduces physic al and emotional stress
- Reduces fatigue and stimulates energy
- Anti-cancer effect through hyperthermia effect, immunity enhancement and elimination of carcinogenic chemicals
• Improves circulation to deep and superficial tissues
• Promotes detoxification of the heavy metals and organic chemicals stored in fat cells
• Helps boost the immune response to kill viruses and bacteria
Ultra Low EMF Infrared Saunas
Many units produce anywhere from 80 all the way up to 180 milligauss of emf toxins! This in my opinion is counter productive. Why would you sit in a sauna in the hopes of detoxifying your entire body while surrounding your self with electromagnetic static. Ideally you Want to be in a pure room that has no chemicals no off gassing pure infrared calibrated to what your body can absorb and use and low to no emfs. This can potentially put strain on the body and slow down the healing process This is not the optimal way to repair and rejuvenate the body and your health. When doing your research for a brand or model, try to get an Ultra low EMF infrared sauna for maximum benefits.
Ultra low EMF units relieve the liver and kidneys by passing toxins through the skin that help to protect these internal organs from damage. Ultra low EMF infrared saunas when tested with a gauss meter put off approx .02 milligauss when measured one inch away from the panel and when the meter is moved one to 2 inches from the panel will usually drop down to ratings 0!!! .
To review if you use a carbon panel infrared sauna you are:
2. Detoxing your body of the many years of toxic footprints left on your cells (from food and outside heavy metals and pollution exposure)
3. Ideally getting a low emf sauna for best results
