The Infrared Red Sauna benefits the body by heating it directly causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. 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. A build-up of toxic substances can lead to a host of common illnesses. Ridding the body of these toxins through a natural sauna detox may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality. The skin is one of the most powerful eliminative organs, but unfortunately for most it is both overly burdened and inactive. With sedentary living and the addition of chemicals to the skin through soaps, detergents, deodorants and lotions, the skin cannot carry out its designated functions. Sun damage also seriously impedes the skins ability to detoxify. Saunas increase circulation and oxygenate the skin, restoring its detoxifying properties. Saunas also stimulate cells to release toxins which can then be eliminated naturally by the liver and bowel.
