Infrared Sauna Benefits

Detoxification:
For a decade SaunaRay has worked with leading medical researchers and clinical doctors to understand why so many people turn their health around simply by sitting in our medical grade infrared saunas. Current medical literature now shows that heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium, along with complex chemicals such as pesticides, phthalates and BPA are more effectively removed via sweat than any other method of detoxification.  Mercury is proven to be removed via sweat. Dentists are particularly vulnerable to exposure, and should be sweating 3x a week.

Weight Loss:
Emerging science shows a fundamental shift in understanding the plague of obesity in our society. Many toxins love fat. They are called Lipo-philic toxins which means “fat loving”. When toxins are present the endocrine system that regulates body metabolism can adjust to keep more fat on the body, in order to store harmful toxins. By sweating and thus removing heavy metals, plastic and pesticides, doctors have found that patients who could not easily lose weight will re-balance to a healthier weight in a short period.

Fibromyalgia:
Leading Fibromyalgia specialists have long relied on SaunaRay’s non-toxic construction to help their patients abate the debilitating symptoms of this disorder. Once the patients starts to sweat regularly they notice their health improves and their symptoms are reduced within weeks.

Psoriasis:
100% of SaunaRay customers who purchased a unit for their psoriasis have reported dramatic improvement within weeks. Psoriasis is a condition of the liver where certain toxins are not fully metabolized and they are sent to the skin for future elimination via sweat. If you don’t sweat then the skin over-produces cells creating dry dead skin, and concentrates toxins on the skin producing an itchy or burning sensation. If you do sweat, discomfort decreases substantially and there is no more need for creams, pills or other methods to control the symptoms.

Autism:
Children diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum often have difficulty detoxing heavy metals. Science has shown the do not excrete the same quantities of mercury as children without Autism. Whether this is the cause of their condition, or a symptom is still unknown. Parents caring for children with ASD have found SaunaRay sessions to be helpful both with the overall health of their child, and assists with behavioural issues.

Asthma:
Asthma is increasing in our society and is often coupled with arthritis or eczema as multiple symptoms. All of them can be symptoms of toxic accumulation in the body.The Medical Journal Clinical Ecology has reported Asthma can be relieved by employing sweat therapy on the patient. SaunaRay customers with Asthma have reported remarkable reoveries with many getting off their medications entirely. Our uniquely designed medical grade sauna operates at comfortably low temperatures and are safe for people with asthma.

Blood Pressure:
Doctors have reported that the calming effect of the gentle far infrared heaters is credited with normalizing blood pressure almost instantly in some patients. For longer term re-balancing of blood pressure, regular sessions that detoxify the patient from accumulated toxic metals and complex chemicals have helped some patients to lower their dose of blood pressure medication and even get off their meds entirely – always under consultation with their doctor.

Diabetes:
Diabetes is a societal epidemic debilitating millions of people across North America. Emerging science has now linked the presence of toxic chemicals and heavy metals with adult onset Diabetes (Type 2). Science has also proven that these toxins can be effectively removed via sweat, and in some cases the symptoms of Diabetes have been reversed.

Relaxation:
Infrared saunas have been designed with the utmost in comfort for greater relaxation and stress-reduction.

Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75 to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system.

The more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate and blood pressure and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection.

Scientific evidence also shows that infrared sauna therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during a sauna therapy session, they drop immediately afterward. In fact, Infrared saunas have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use. 

.Infrared saunas are guaranteed to help you relax in natural comfort with an invigorating deep tissue sweat that will have you feeling fully refreshed after every sauna session

Improved Circulation:
As a health sauna, this sauna heats your muscles with infrared rays and produces an increase in blood flow similar to regular exercise. In fact, blood flow during infrared sauna use has been reported to rise from a normal rate of 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.1

The elevation in body temperature from an infrared sauna use also produces an increase in blood flow that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Regular infrared sauna use – especially in the mid-infrared range – has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after your health sauna session is completed. A cardio workout has never been so relaxing! Another benefit of improved circulation from infrared sauna use is quick muscle recovery – after your regular workouts. The increased peripheral circulation from our infrared heat reduces inflammation, decreases pain and speeds healing, all important steps in helping the body recover from strenuous activity.
