We've all heard the expression, `if you can't stand the heat then get out
of the kitchen.' But, if you can't stand the heat then should you get out
of the sauna?
Infrared heat is essential for all life. Far Infrared Sauna heat provides the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation and damaging ultra-violet rays. Glass, like sand, emits far infrared rays naturally. Sand and glass are the natural components of ceramic, which - as mentioned - emits infrared waves without dangerous UV rays.
Far Infrared Saunas are better than steam saunas for a number of reasons: Far infrared warms the body directly instead of just heating the air as in steam saunas. Steam saunas require higher temperatures and many people find their breathing laboured after only a short time in one which means they vacate the sauna sooner. People tend to stay longer and sweat more in a Far Infrared one as the breathing environment is quite comfortable. (I know this to be true as I can comfortably sit in my sauna for almost an hour and sweat profusely with no trouble breathing) Steam saunas merely heat the skin but do not penetrate deeply into the body like Far Infrared ones. This in turn draws out more toxins. Infrared dry heat is mold and mildew free and more sanitary than a regular sauna because it will not spread and cultivate bacteria. Also, Doctor Aundrea Adams of the International Institute of Holistic healing compared the detoxification findings of steam saunas and far infrared ones. She found sweat generated by a steam sauna was composed of up to 97% water while sweat released after an Far Infrared Sauna experience was only composed of 80-85% water. The remaining sweat was composed of heavy metals and fat soluble toxins - exactly what you want removed!
For the temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain, arthritis, and muscle spasms, stiffness and elimination of nasty toxins that pollute our bodies on a daily basis then a far infrared sauna is the answer for you. So, enjoy your heat without having to get out of the sauna!!
Ed Note: Infrared heat is generated by the body and performs as a natural healing energy. Incited by cold temperatures, it is a byproduct of Ice Healing Therapy.
