Detox and Sauna! ‘Making It Easy To Do The Right Thing’ is something that we focus on at theDr.com every day. The paradigms around health, and the prevention of disease, are always changing, whether it’s something we are consciously aware of (or not).
One of the most important responsibilities I have, as a leader of this community – which is now over half a million people strong all around the globe, is to share the newest information available. And we know that the “old” way of getting information – waiting for it to trickle down through the establishment to your doctor – can take over a decade. Having the right information, at the right time, makes it easier to do the right thing.
If you’ve read the Autoimmune Fix, or if you’ve heard me speak before, have heard me say that the primary assault on our bodies today, is all of the environmental toxins we’re exposed to.
Literally decades ago (and I’m aging myself here), in the 1970’s, during my undergraduate years, I began experimenting with saunas as a means to detox – after all, your skin is your largest organ and DESIGNED as an important pathway to detoxify your body.
Hundreds of studies and clinical trials can be found reporting impressive improvements in… Arthritis, Sleep Disorders, Mood Disorders, Thyroid Disorders, Acne, Obesity, Autism, Cancer, Cellulite, Heart Disease, Radiation Related Illnesses, Crohn’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis & Fibromyalgia, Scars & Wound Healing, Strokes, Menopause, Depression, Asthma, Eczema And Psoriasis, Colds, The Flu, and More!
Today, sauna use is a base protocol with almost all detox programs. In fact, it is extremely difficult to achieve the results and benefits of sauna therapy in any other way.
An infrared sauna is a special type of sauna that basically uses light to create heat. You might also hear them called far-infrared because far describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. It’s on the same wavelength of light that gives life to the entire plant kingdom! Far infrared rays are the most vital to health and healing.
Far infrared rays also stimulate endorphins (the happy brain hormones!), kill bad bacteria and parasites and most importantly, penetrate into the body to detoxify cells.
Far infrared is also the same type of heat produced by the sun, but without any of the negative effects of solar radiation.
It’s like being in your own box of healing sunshine without all the harmful radiation! In fact, there’s evidence that this type of light is actually the antidote to excess ultraviolet and EMF radiation.
It’s even been shown to heal sun damaged skin, including wrinkles and fine lines!
