The primary tools utilized for detoxification are the combination of clinical aromatherapy and our Far Infrared sauna and body wrap system. The benefits of Far Infrared Therapy include expanded capillaries to increase blood flow, detoxification, stimulated metabolism, rebuilding of injured tissue, and muscle relaxation. Intelligently applied aromatherapy enhances the detoxification process. Surprisingly, regular detoxification utilizing Far Infrared technology also aids in weight loss!
Lose Toxins and fat!
“I had heard [about using] infrared…, but was very pleasantly surprised to see it was actually true. I had personally noticed fat loss and increased energy from infrared …as well as sleeping better. I decided to run functional medicine testing to confirm this and found my basic metabolic rate had actually increased”
Dr. Mike Nowazek-President Alberta Naturopathic Practioners (2000-2007).
Rehydration is essential
The fat and cholesterol, acids and toxins making up 15-20% of your sweat volume in our far infrared sauna and body wrap system are not replaced during rehydration. The stored calories obtained from fat that have been used to pump the sweat are also not restored via rehydrating.
Rehydration is essential for the detoxification and weightloss process to be effective because you are not only losing water and salt, but various heavy metals as well. If you don’t rehydrate you will feel listless, unwell, and will not lose any fat. On the other hand, hydration assists the detoxification process and leaves you feeling light and revitalized!
Infrared-induced heat works differently than the average dry saunas found at your gym
The sweat normally produced in a hot air sauna or by exercise is approximately, 95%-97% water. On the other hand, the sweat produced while enjoying our infrared sauna and body wrap system is from 80-85% water (Cornbleet, 2008).
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association:
“A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal, which is equivalent to running 2–3 miles. A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600–800 kcal with no adverse effects. While the weight of the water loss can be regained by drinking water, the calories consumed will not be.
Infrared heat immersion stimulates the sweat glands to release 15-20% dissolved solids in our sweat versus only 3-5% from normal sweat (Widmaier, Raff, Strang & Vander, 2011) increasing the rate of elimination of toxins directly through our skin by the act of sweating. The non-water portion that remains after spending time in Infrared heat immersion is principally cholesterol, fat (Broer, 2001), toxic heavy metals, soluble toxins, sulfuric acid, ammonia, sodium, and uric acid (Günzler & Gremlich, 2002).
Some of the fat molecules that Infrared heat exposure dissolves and the toxins it releases enter the blood stream to be eliminated by the liver, kidneys and bowels. Profuse sweating, using our Infrared sauna and body wrap system will help clear fat and toxic debris from the body directly through the pores of our skin, and the decrease in the overall toxic burden can then allow the body to rebalance its metabolism (Yamazaki).
