13 Benefits of a Detox with Infrared Saunas

13 Benefits of a Detox with Infrared Saunas

Detoxing the body can be a challenge, however with the proper tools and knowledge, it can be made much easier. The use of saunas, steam rooms, and sweat lodges dates back into ancient history. For example, the Native Americans use of sweat lodges is still used to this day to assist the body in purging toxins. The natives position hot rocks inside the center of a teepee, and pour water on top to create steam and spread the heat through the teepee. While I have not personally experienced this, I have a lot of experience with dry saunas and portable infrared Saunas.

We can experience these benefits in the comfort of our own homes with the latest and best technology, the infra-red sauna. I have experienced many regular dry saunas, and while these are fantastic, the data shows that you can achieve the same level of detox with an infrared sauna in a third of the time. Years ago I picked up my first portable sauna. It was awesome, however a bit bulky and took up a lot of space in my spare room. Fortunately, you no longer need to spend thousands of dollars and take up a big portion of your home space with large wood or portable saunas. The Higher Dose Infrared Sauna Bag allows you to hack into the benefits of an infrared sauna, without such a high cost to your pocket and space. 

The array of benefits of regular sauna use are wide;

Relaxation; Relaxing is at the top of the list as quality of life is really important in my opinion. The more relaxed you are, the better everything in your life will be. Everything from your work to relationships to mental health will be vastly improved with consistent sauna use. 

Reduce stress and fatigue by entering the body in parasympathetic state; allows for deeper rest and more thorough digestion.

Ease muscle aches, arthritis, and joint pain; Signs of aging can be dramatically reversed with repeated use of infrared sauna.

Weight loss, burn calories, trim waist line; The sweating induced by the sauna increases the heart rate, essentially giving your body a “passive aerobic workout.” A session of approximately 30 min burns between 300-800 calories.

Increase Metabolism, regulate blood sugar; More positive affects of the "passive aerobic workout" that your heart and body endure within a sauna session.

Improve Immunity, infrared wavelengths increase the core body temperature; This is similar to getting a fever, as the internal body temperature increase associated with a fever is the body’s mechanism for eliminating viruses and toxins, neutralizing and sweating them out via pores. 

Improve skin health; Akin to the heart and detox benefits, our skin also is dramatically toned and cleansed with repeated use of infrared saunas. Removing toxins and impurities assist the collagen growth and natural beauty of the skin. Our skin is the biggest organ so it’s imperative to treat it as such for optimal health.

Improve heart and mental health; Boosting your heartbeat and blood flow with infrared heat and the resulting sweating helps to tone the heart muscle. 

Reduce appearance of cellulite; This can be embarrassing as time goes on and cellulite sagging sets in. Especially when the alternative includes full body relaxation, utilizing infrared saunas and blankets for gradually eliminating cellulite and toxicity has its side benefits.

Regulate diabetes by decreasing symptoms; Assisting the body in removing toxins reduces the strain on all organs, allowing for better insulin resistance and response.

Slow Alzheimer's Parkinsons; While the cause of these diseases has sparked much controversy, the data points to heavy metal toxicity, mold, and air pollution to be a common factor in those with mental ailments. Infrared sauna's accelerate detoxification via the skin pores, which arguably is the best way to completely rid the body of metal toxicity. 

Aid in appetite regulation; It is advised to enter saunas on an empty stomach, as your body will devote energy to the stress of heat rather than digestion while in the sauna. Post sauna, drinking water is highly advised to replenish the water you lost within the session. Naturally, you will experience an increase in appetite as your system settles back into equilibrium. Again, the "passive aerobic workout" affect of saunas will burn calories and help you hone in on good health. A 50 minute session in an infrared sauna can burn up to 1000 calories or more. 

Boost ATP and mitochondria health; The light wavelengths within infrared saunas have the ability to increase many beneficial nutrients within the body including Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP), serotonin, dopamine, nerve growth factor (NGF), and human growth hormone (HGH).

The benefits to your life with the regular use of infrared saunas can be astounding. With time and consistency, achieving your health goals can be made far more attainable. Start your journey by picking up a Higher Dose Infrared Sauna Bag today!
