Do you know about Far-Infrared Saunas?
The Heath Benefits of Far-Infrared Saunas:
Over our years of trading, we’ve spotted a number of our clients expressing an interest into infrared saunas and their benefits.
So we thought it would be a good time to compile an article giving our opinion. Discussing what they’re like to be in, and how you can enjoy the benefits for yourself.
Dr. Mercola; one the most well-known doctor in the U.S. is a big fan of saunas in general, but in particular favours infrared:
“There are different types of saunas on the market today but they basically fall into two different categories. Wet heat and dry heat. A wet sauna heats the air using water and heat, and so it produces steam and humidity. Dry heat saunas don’t produce humidity, but either heat the room, or heat your body from the inside out.
A traditional Finnish dry sauna heats the room and therefore your body. An infrared sauna works by penetrating your tissues with infrared rays using lower temperatures. You get hotter, faster and deeper in your tissue than with a traditional dry sauna, but the room does not get as hot.
The sauna you choose will be related to how well you can tolerate the heat of a traditional sauna. Either a dry/wet Finnish sauna or if you prefer the lower temperatures of the infrared sauna.
Using an infrared sauna, you may be able to easily work up to 30 to 45 minutes. While a traditional Finnish sauna may be too uncomfortable for that length of time.
There is an emerging amount of science supporting the healing and regenerative capacity of infrared exposure. I am so fascinated with the implications for health that my book for 2018 will be on photobiology. This is the reason why I use my infrared sauna three times a week for 30 minutes at 136°F with my detox supplements.
Almost all of us could benefit from this practice as even the healthiest of us are regularly exposed to toxins in our existing or previous environments. This allows us to accumulate metabolic poisons and the infrared sauna is the best way I know of to remove them.
Detox supplements likely need to be used from three to nine months depending on your toxic load.”
A couple of the staff here at Warm4less have an infrared sauna at home and are really big fans of how they work. Jeremy who works here says “I have a 15-minute session every night before bed. I always wake up feeling more energetic the next day without fail.”
Understandably, not everyone can have a sauna at home. Nut by having panels placed throughout a home, in a room or having your own ‘health room’ you can enjoy the same benefits at a cheaper cost!
