The dark and cold fall is upon us. Therefore, it’s time for us to seek some heat and improve your health with Infrared Light Therapy!
An increasing number of health practitioners and consumers are becoming aware of the incredible benefits of a Far Infrared Sauna. These light waves are capable of altering cells, cell membranes, DNA/proteins and cell fluids. Moreover, at the cellular level, altered cell membranes and mitochondrial activity take place, which positively impact the metabolism. Far Infrared therapy also has a “meso-structure” effect. This means that proteins within bodily tissues change in a way that’s important for overall biological activity.
Various studies have shown that infrared heat therapy improves muscle endurance and recovery. Infrared light therapy also helps to lower blood pressure, reduces chronic pain and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. Additionally, infrared light therapy improves circulation and blood flow, detoxifies your body of heavy metals, assists with weight loss,and boosts mood.
Ways Infrared Light Therapy Sauna can improve your health:
1. Lower Blood Pressure/Improve Heart Function:
The Mayo clinic is recommending it for their heart patients. Research shows the powerful benefit of nitric oxide production. Nitric Oxide treats heart conditions and infrared light therapy can produce nitric oxide in the body. “Beyond the incredible relaxation effect it has, infrared therapy has been shown to increase endorphin levels even hours after a sauna session. It is also proven to be beneficial for musculoskeletal ailments, heavy metal detoxification, increased blood flow, and boosting the immune system’s cell activity,” Cardiologist, Alejandro Junger notes. Regular use of saunas would conceivably help promote a long-term reduction in blood-pressure.
2. Boost Your Mood:
A session may reduce the effects of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). A recent study found that “exposing skin to heat from infrared light can mimic the effect of antidepressants.” The same study went on to explain, ” [it simulates] the production of serotonin, the hormone linked to mood regulation.”
Detoxification is a great way to help your body recover from chronic health issues. These include autoimmune disorders, Lyme and toxin-induced conditions. This happens when your body opens skin pores and sweats out fluids. This type of infrared detoxification is much more effective because the body heats up from the inside—out. Traditional Scandinavian-style saunas do the opposite, heating from the outside—in.
4. Aids in Weight Loss:
Infrared saunas can promote healthy weight loss by giving your body a metabolic kick start. In fact, this kick start is similar to that of rigorous exercise. Your body undergoes direct weight loss through fluids and the boosting of metabolic processes. Additionally, your body will likely begin to lose weight naturally as a by-product. Long-held toxins will be released and the body will simply function optimally.
5. Fights the Common Cold:
While saunas seem much more enticing in the winter months as a great way to boost your core temperature back to a comfortable level, it may also help fight off those nasty winter bugs like the flu. In fact, one study found that regular infrared sauna use can eliminate the likelihood of getting sick by 50%! It’s little surprise that something that offers so many specific health benefits can offer such a holistic healing effect.
6. Skin Purification:
Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.
Infrared light therapy is a lot like a rejuvenation to your entire body—starting at the cellular level and working its way out!
