Infrared Sauna: up with the good cells, down with the diseased cells.
Many people around the United states are beginning to research and seek alternative medicine while shying away from what would be known as "traditional" medicine. As many of us know, when our bodies begin producing and feeding mutated/diseased cells we can see just that- disease; among the most common of course is cancer.
When someone is diagnosed with such diseases, the most common way to treat them is to kill as many cells as possible- the good and the bad cells. Thus causing someone to become even more ill before becoming better. What if there was a way to kill only bad, mutated cells while leaving the good cells in tact? What if we could prevent diseased cells from even taking over our bodies? It could be possible.
The human body is overwhelmed with toxins from the air we breathe to the food we eat and water we drink. Those toxins and pollutants can cause cells in the body to begin to mutate, especially if there is no routine elimination of buildup.
Detoxification is of utmost importance in today's world because with all of the pollutants, metals and toxins that we are exposed to the liver and kidneys can not keep up. Most people are saturated with lead, nickel, arsenic, aluminum, mercury, etc. which weakens the ability to function properly and self-repair. Infrared Sauna has been recommended time and time again by many physicians for an intense detoxification of the body.
Most of us have heard of hypothermia, which is the damage of all cells due to extreme cold; but a major benefit of Infrared Sauna is HYPERTHERMIA- which is the eradication of mutated and diseased cells. This creates a "fever" affect on the body because the body temperature is raised and then begins fighting bacteria, infections, fungi, etc. Tumors and mutated cells don't tolerate heat well and in turn will hasten their death.
Infrared Sauna also boosts immunity by enhancing white blood cell function. Just 30 minutes in an infrared sauna temporarily causes a 3 degree body temperature increase, which is enough to stimulate white blood cells.
The deep heat from an infrared sauna also reduces pain because it is a proven method to reducing inflammation and increasing circulation. Stimulating the dilation of blood vessels improves blood flow deep within the muscle tissue, reducing pain in joints and muscles.
Compared to other saunas, the heat emitted from a near-infrared sauna is considered to be completely safe and, in addition to all of its benefits, it’s a cooler option. Non Infrared saunas require high temperatures for profuse sweating, but infrared rays penetrate the skin and heat from the inside, as well as on the skin’s surface. This results in an air temperature that is much cooler, allowing you to stay in much longer and receive the fullest benefits. This is particularly significant for cancer patients or sick individuals who would not be able to tolerate a regular sauna due to intense heat.
“If I were to single out one method to combat cancer, it is the [infrared] sauna. It assists removal of chemical toxins and heavy metals, increases oxygenation, enhances the immune system, and reduces the radiation burden in the body.
Cancer does not like high oxygen levels and an absence of readily available sugar. Cancer hates nutritionally healthy people with good detoxification and eliminative functions. Cancer does not like love and other positive emotional states along with spirituality. Everyone seems to agree that cancer can’t stand increased temperature.” - Dr. Lawrence Wilson, MD
If you are looking to prevent or to help rid your body of any disease, we encourage you to do some research on an Infrared Sauna. This is a very small snippet of information that we find mind-blowing. There is a plethora of more from physician after physician, all encouraging and exposing the power of Infrared Sauna. We offer sauna session every day of the week.
