Far Infrared Sauna
Relax in a Far Infrared Sauna that utilizes radiant heat to stimulate immune system function and natural healing processes in the human body. Far infrared light waves are closely tuned to the human body’s resonant frequencies and can penetrate up to 2 inches into the human body resulting in increases in the body’s natural homeostatic responses that nourish, heal, and regenerate the body both physically and emotionally.
Far Infrared Sauna use strengthens the immune system and improves the body’s natural healing abilities to help you prevent illness and defend yourself against seasonal sickness. Far Infrared Saunas radiant heat raises the core body temperature by 2°F to 3°F which increases white blood cell activity and acts as an induced fever that kills many infections, viruses, and microorganisms. Use of Far Infrared Sauna at the first sign of illness can prevent and stop the progression of getting sick and dramatically increase recovery time!
Through regular use of Far Infrared Sauna the immune system function gets significantly stronger as accumulated toxins are eliminated through sweating. As the toxic burden in the body decreases, the body’s resistances to common colds, flu bugs, allergens, and viruses is dramatically improved.
Regular Far Infrared Sauna therapy has proven to be one of the fast and most efficient methods for eliminating the body of heavy metals, acids, and toxic waste accumulated over time from environmental exposure. Far Infrared heat penetrates the body up to 2 inches which initiates the breakdown of toxic fatty tissue located subcutaneously just below the skin. Fat cells are broken into smaller particles, breaking ion bonds in large water and oil based molecules permitting toxins and trapped gases to be released via sweat and oil glands. Sweat expels water soluble toxins and heavy metals while oil glands excrete oil soluble toxins (ex: pesticides, diesel fuels, solvents, and aluminum). Some toxins are released into blood stream to be eliminated by the liver, kidneys, and bowels.
Europe and Japan have used Infrared therapy extensively and successfully for pain relief and pain management. Far Infrared heat infiltrates the body up to 2 inches and has a direct effect on peripheral nerves and soothes irritated tissue for powerful pain relief without reliance on prescription pain medications.
Far Infrared Sauna can burn approximately 600 calories in a 30 minute session! Far Infrared heat effectively targets and breaks down subcutaneous fatty tissue to cause dramatic improvements in cellulite. The Journal of the American Medical Association stated “Regular use of Far Infrared Sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system and regular use may be as effective a method of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.”
Far Infrared Sauna has dramatically positive effect on treating skin maladies such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, and scars. Regular sauna use promotes an amazingly dramatic effect on the health of the skin and complexion. Skin becomes youthfully smooth, soft, and tone with the complexion taking on a radiantly healthy glow.
Relax and enjoy the deep penetrating radiant heat as it relieves the effect of daily stress and tension on the body resulting in an overall state of calm and relaxation. Far Infrared Sauna is an effective method for eliminating stress and reducing emotional, mental, and muscular tension to leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and invigorated.
Research by NASA has shown that Far Infrared Sauna therapy was a highly effective method for passively stimulating the cardiovascular system and keeping astronaut’s heart health in optimal condition. Mayo Clinic and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology heart study results showed significant improvement in blood vessel functioning in high-cholesterol, diabetes, and smoking patients. Infrared therapy also showed benefits through increased circulation, lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar, and positive influences in weight loss.
“Hyperthermia is a type of cancer treatment which increases core body temperatures up to 101°F to destroy and eliminate cancer cells. Using Far Infrared heat to produce hyperthermia has proven to be an effective method of cancer treatment.”
-National Cancer Institute
Hyperthermia has been used successfully in conjunction with traditional cancer therapies such as radiation and chemotherapy in clinics around the world. Far Infrared Sauna creates hyperthermia which increases blood flow and oxygen to cancer tumor cells making them more responsive to medical treatments.
Far Infrared Sauna is a component of Age Management of West Michigan’s Integrative Cancer Support Program.
Research shows that the accumulation of drug residues and their lipophilic metabolites in the body play a key role in drug addiction. These residues are linked with persistent symptoms, and their mobilization from body stores into the bloodstream connects with drug cravings experienced by most substance abusers.
Far Infrared Sauna usage dramatically increases the removal of drug residues and metabolites found in fatty tissue through sweat and urine for a remarkable decrease in withdrawal symptoms and increase in long-term rehabilitation success. Further detoxification to increase success can be achieved through IV chelation of toxins and oral cleansing programs.
There are many other factors that need to be addressed for successful substance abuse rehabilitation and include:
