Saunas are a great way to get rid of toxins throughout the body. I prefer the brand Sunlighten from Kansas City. It is a full Spectrum sauna. This means it is the only sauna technology with three separate heating elements to emit near, mid and far infrared at the optimal wavelength to precisely target health needs. Researchers have long told us how the body sweats out toxic substances, including heavy metals. As long as you maintain proper hydration, the more you safely sweat, the more toxins you’ll expel from your body. And what is one of the safest and most effective methods for inducing a detoxifying sweat? A sauna, of course. In sauna detox, your body sweats out numerous toxins through pores. But not all sweats are the same; and neither are all saunas.
It is believed that Sunlighten saunas are up to seven times more effective than a traditional sauna. It is commonly thought that sweat from traditional saunas is 95 to 97% water with salt making up a part of the rest. It has been found that a FULL SPECTRUM SAUNA WITH FAR INFRARED mobilizes Hg(Mercury) in deeper tissues (3″ down) making infrared saunas an effective solution for REMOVING MERCURY from the skin. Far infrared saunas are believed to be more effective in moving toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in a far infrared sauna only 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid.
Sunlighten saunas are highly effective for detoxification because of our highly-efficient and patented Solocarbon far infrared heating technology – the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. Rather than simply heating the ambient air to draw out toxins, our sauna detox will heat your core to expel them. The crazy thing is, you don't feel the heat like you would be outside on a hot day since it is infrared and heats from your core out, not from the outside in. It is extremely relaxing.
Detoxification is just the beginning of the health benefits of a Sunlighten sauna. Other benefits include:
- Boosting Immunity
- Pain Relief
- Weight Loss
- Lowering Blood Pressure
- Increase Circulation
- Wound Healing
- Muscle Relaxation
- Helping with AutoImmune Disease
As a result, regular usage of a Sunlighten sauna detox will provide a truly deep, productive sweat where toxins reside, at the cellular level. Check out Sunlighten.com in Kansas City or even go there for a session to try it out! My recommendation if you buy a sauna for home use (Which is best since you DO get sweaty and want to shower off toxins right away before they absorb back in your skin) is... spend the extra money to get one you can lay down in. That is the way to truly "melt" into relaxation!
