Health Benefits of Infrared Saunas

Infrared Sauna Detoxification

Detoxification isn't new. Just better.

Sweating is good for you.  Seriously, sweating is one of the body's safest and most natural way to heal and maintain good health.  And that's why every Sunlighten detox sauna is specifically designed to promote a deep, healthy and natural detoxifying sweat.

Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body's immune system and helps the body's biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods.  Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.

The United States Center for Disease Control estimates that the root cause of more than 80% of all illnesses are found in personal environments or lifestyles.  In other words, the would around you can make you sick.  It's in the air we breathe and in the food we eat.  There's very little we can do to reduce exposure.  We can, however, use sauna detox as a treatment and sweat yourself to better health and wellness. Infrared saunas are seven times more effective than a traditional sauna. Our detox sauna uses far infrared heat to generate sweats with a toxin ration of nearly 20%. In traditional saunas, you might get a 3% ratio. This increase in sweat only comes from raising the core body temperature by two-to -three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, our sauna detox will heat your core to expel them.

Infrared Sauna Weight Loss

According to information published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, infrared sauna weight loss sessions were shown to burn up to 600 calories. During a sauna weight loss session, core temperature increase. The body has to work hard to cool itself, causing a healthy sweat. Using a infrared sauna increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, burning more calories, leading to more weight loss. And blood flow rises, increasing from 5-7 quarts up to 13 quarts a minute.  Plus, regular use of an infrared sauna may provide many of the same benefits as regular exercise, such as cardiovascular conditioning.
