For those who are wondering what an infrared sauna is, it is part of the sun’s spectrum but it is not visible to the naked eye but people experience it as heat. Infrared wavelength, does penetrate your body to kickstart detoxification through sweating. If you want to know how safe it is, you should check out the newborn units in most hospitals because it is what is used in keeping those babies in there warm. If you always feel warm after you have been locked in an embrace, you should know that this is because of the infrared heat being radiated from the body. Dry and wet saunas depend on the room air being heated to the point where it gets so hot in the body but this is the only way it can reach therapeutic levels. Moving on, infrared saunas do not depend on heated air but rather heating the tissues to cause sweating at ambient temperature.
You should know sweating is important to your body and look beyond how it makes you feel or smell. Sweating does increase metabolism which is basically burning calories. Infrared sauna drives your cardiopulmonary system to work as hard as that of someone doing moderate exercise. You should expect to burn at last 600 calories by getting into an infrared sauna. Over time, people who have been regularly going to infrared sauna realize a decrease in their abdominal girth. As much as use of infrared sauna does lead to loss of body fat, you should also time the period you are using it because you will get to your goal much faster if you are using the therapy later in the day rather than in the morning or during the day. This is because in the evening many people record high levels of human growth hormone and lowered cortisol levels.
There are those who think that it is not that important to detoxify because the body does that on its own. This is indeed true but there are so many pollutants being realized in the environment and many companies do not care about conducting studies on how these pollutants affect the health of human beings on the long term because there is no law that requires them to do this. You should not expect the body to do all this work on its own as well as to make sure lead and mercury, which are naturally occurring metals, do not mess up the system.
