Detoxing is a buzz word today and for a good reason. Many people believe we do not need to actively detox our bodies because the is what our livers and kidneys are for. While that was true 100, or even 50 years ago, it doesn't hold true anymore. Humans are so toxic in this day and age it is actually surprising and after a certain point, it is almost impossible for our organs to keep up with flushing out toxins.
So, what are the options for detoxing? As anyone who has social media knows, there are so many things the promise detoxing it can be overwhelming. We here at the Salt Oasis like to stick with traditional detox methods that have been medically proven for decades.
Detoxing Through the Feet
Feet are placed in our Foot Detox with warm salt water. The specially designed system stimulates the sweat glands to expel their contents into the water. The feet become the natural door of exit because there are more sweat glands in your feet than anywhere else in your body. The Foot detox has become a favorite session as people are seeing some amazing results.
Detoxing Through the Skin
Regular infrared sauna therapy can help the body eliminate harmful chemicals and toxins by detoxification of the lymphatic tissue. Infrared sauna therapy also strengthens the body’s immune system, increases the body’s absorption of vital nutrients, and encourages weight loss all while you relax in total comfort.
The sweat produced in an infrared sauna is different from the sweat produced during an intense workout. When you sweat during exercise, your nervous system is in the sympathetic mode. During this “water sweat” you only lose electrolytes and water – not toxins. But regular infrared sauna use, at a low temperature of 105-130 F, moves the nervous system into a parasympathetic mode, stimulating a “fat-sweat” that helps eliminate the chemicals and toxins stored in the body.
Infrared Sauna and Ionic Foot Detoxing are two of the few ways to detoxify the body of heavy metals. An Infrared Sauna has also been shown to be helpful with treating colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, autism, ADD and ADHD. An Ionic Foot Detox has been shown to help with fatigue, restless leg syndrome, circulation, organ function, acid/alkaline balance, and metabolism.
We are all exposed to various sources of pollutants, chemicals and toxins on a daily basis. These toxins enter the body in three ways: through the skin, the digestive system, and the lungs. They interfere with the body’s ability to work properly. Trauma, stress and modern day diets all disturb our body’s natural ability to excrete these toxins.
When the level of toxins exceeds the body’s ability to eliminate them, they accumulate. This results in the body becoming more stressed, overwhelmed and unable to function properly. The higher the levels of toxins, the lower the body’s ability to fight off disease and infection and energy levels drops. Detoxing is now more important than ever!
