by thousands of doctors nationwide, the Thermal Life Far Infrared
Sauna is a critical step in restoring good health to those
who suffer from allergies, acne, brain fog, fatigue, fibromyalgia,
depression, mood swings, frequent colds and flu and hundreds
of other symptoms that indicate heavy metal (including mercury)
or chemical toxicity.
Far Infra Red Sauna's are a relaxing and
effective way of helping you treat the conditions which may
be causing you ill health. Far Infra Red Sauna's use infra
red energy to penetrate the bodies tissue to a depth of over
4 cm. The energy output is so closely tuned to the bodies
own radiation energy that our bodies absorb close to 93 %
of the infra red waves that reach our skin.
What is the difference between
sauna and infrared sauna?
To compare, traditional conventional saunas
rely on a stove to heat the air first (as hot as 220 °F)
to produce it's heating effects. Far infrared sauna uses 85°-120°F.
The infrared heat rays warm the body directly. Its radiant
heat reaches deep, to be absorbed by your body as much as
1.5 inches (45 mm) below the skin, while producing 2 to 3
times more sweat than other saunas at a much lower temperature.
The body directly absorbs as much as 93% of the heat generated
by the far infrared sauna.
What is Far Infra Red Sauna:
Infra-Red Heat is simply a form of energy
that is directly transmitted onto objects because of its specific
wavelength. This band of light is not visible to human eyes
but can be seen with special cameras, however every person
can feel this type of light in the form of heat. The sun’s
warmth has the same principals. It produces infrared energy
- but without ultraviolet rays. The infrared heat rays warm
the body directly.
How Does It Work:
As the body temperature rises by infrared
heat, perspiration occurs and blood circulation increases.
The muscles, organs, tissues and cells are stimulated by heat
to sweat, and toxic waste, which includes heavy metals, is
removed from the body through perspiration.
Burns Calories and Controls
As a person relaxes in the far infrared
sauna, the body is actually hard at work, producing sweat,
pumping blood - and burning calories. According to a Journal
of the American Medical Association report, in a single sauna
session person may burn as many calories as one would rowing
or jogging for 30 minutes.
can burn from 300 to 600 and to 900 calories per session!
As the body expends energy to produce sweat
(1 gm sweat requires 0.586 kcal) a moderately conditioned
person can easily sweat off up to 1000gms or more in a sauna
session - the equivalent to running 10-15 kms. While this
weight loss can be regained by re-hydration with water, the
calories consumed will not. This is a valuable system for
who don't exercise and those who can not exercise, yet want
an effective weight those control and fitness program, along
with the benefits that regular exercise bring.
Relieves pain and Stiffness:
The deep heat of the far infrared sauna
helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and
healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood
circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers
oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover
faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm,
for greater flexibility and range of motion.
Improves the Immune System:
Sauna's deep heat raises your body temperature,
inducing an artificial fever. As it works to combat the "fever,"
the body's immune system is strengthened. Combined with the
elimination of toxins and wastes produced by the intense sweating,
the overall health and resistance to disease is increased.
Increases Blood Circulation and Strengthens Cardiovascular
While the moisture on the surface of the
skin evaporates and thus cools the body, a number of other
changes occur in the body to release the heat as quickly as
possible. The heart beats harder and faster , pumping more
blood through the dilated blood vessels, thus achieving the
conditioning benefits of continuous exercise.
As the body increases sweat production
to cool itself, the heart works harder pumping blood at a
greater rate to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning
benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output
and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure
drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness. "Many
of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular
systems, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a sauna
may impart similar stress on the cardiovascular system and
its regular use may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular
conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise....
A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 gms.
in sauna, consuming nearly 300 calories."
Increased blood circulation stimulates the
sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Daily sweating
can help detoxify the body as it rids itself of an accumulation
of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel,
cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid
Reduces Stress and Fatigue:
Perhaps the most immediate relief this
far infrared sauna offers is simple relaxation, as it melts
away the stresses and tensions of urban life. infrared sauna
gives an overall massaging effect, soothing jangled nerves
and knotted muscles.
Improves Skin Condition:
The profuse sweating achieved after just
a few minutes in far infrared sauna carries off deeply imbedded
impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and
immaculately clean, Increased circulation draws the skin's
own natural nutrients to the surface. It improves tone, elasticity,
texture and fresh color of the skin. Increased blood circulation
has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns,
lesions and cuts. In addition, open wounds may heal more quickly,
