1. Infrared Saunas improves blood circulation and skin complexion
Far-Infrared Saunas expand capillaries which stimulate increased blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygen.
It also maintains and promotes healthy lung function
If sebaceous glands are activated, accumulated cosmetics in pores can be eliminated through the skin (sweat and oil glands), resulting in clearer skin
2. Strengthens cardiovascular system
Far-Infrared saunas can strengthen the cardiovascular system by causing heart rate and cardiac output to increase, and diastolic blood pressure to decrease – research by NASA in the early 1980s led to the conclusion that far infrared saunas stimulation of cardiovascular function would be the ideal way to maintain cardiovascular conditioning in American astronauts during long space flight
FIR and gentle tissue warming have also been shown to help improve the ‘health of the cells that line our blood vessels, which if left untreated may increase the risk of heart disorders.
3) Infrared Saunas improve detoxification
Far-Infrared sauna is excellent for detoxification and helps lymphatic cleansing
Scientists in Japan report that in the FIR treatment of clogged capillary vessels, heat expands the capillaries and then initiates the start of a process to dissolve hidden toxins.
Far-Infrared thereby promotes the elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood: poisons, heavy metals – carcinogenic substances from food processing – lactic acid, free fatty acids, and subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue – excess sodium associated with blood pressure – and uric acid.
Where these toxins accumulate, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. Elimination begins when an 8-10 micron Far-Infrared wave is applied to these large water molecules and the water begins to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms that are holding together the molecules of water. As the vibration continues, breakdown of the water molecules occurs and encapsulated gases and other toxic materials are released.
4) Infrared saunas help wound healing
Some good quality experimental and clinical scientific studies (2003) from Japan have shown Infrared saunas to result in more rapid wound healing which was independent of changes in blood flow and skin temperature.
FIR helped this healing by stimulating a group of cells called fibroblasts to make more collagen which is a very important part of good wound healing and tissue repair.
Furthermore, it supports cell growth, DNA synthesis, and protein synthesis all necessary during tissue repair and regeneration. Excellent for healing burns, scar tissue and skin problems such as acne and skin breakouts – anti-aging effects and lessening/softening of wrinkles due to enhanced collagen production.
5) Relaxation and pain/aches management
Infrared Saunas therapy relieves nervous tension and relaxes the auto-neuro muscles thereby helping the body make the most of its intended healing abilities.
FIR reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms, as muscle fibres are heated. As a result, rapid reduction of swelling, inflammation and associated pain occurs. Relaxation of muscles and relief of muscular aches – reduces back, shoulder and neck pains.
FIR soothes tension and stress in both body and mind.
6) Immunity boosting
Infrared saunas therapy strengthen and support the Immune system by supporting increased production of white blood cells (leukocytes) by the bone marrow and killer T-cells by the thymus.
“Natural killer cells in the immune system are crucial to effective immune defense. Hyperthermia releases a bunch of cytokines and heat shock proteins which make cancer cells more immunogenic that means they are better recognized by the natural killer cells. NK cells are essential in killing virus-infected cells and destroying cancer cells. The nutrients selenium, ß-glycan and zinc increase circulating levels of natural killer cells and boost their cancer-killing activity.” – Extract from an article written by Dr. Friedrich Douwes, Klinic St. Georg, Germany.
7) Cancer support
Infrared Sauna Thermal Therapy – commonly known as hyperthermia across Europe and Asia – provides support in the destruction of malignant cells which supposedly cannot survive if the temperature of the cell becomes 107.6F/42C and above
Hyperthermia is used worldwide by hospitals and thermal oncologists. Here are just a few countries that is can be found in use such as Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Hungry, Turkey, Iran, India, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Japan.
Hyperthermia is used extensively in Asia and Europe – especially Japan and Germany – but is only fairly recently in comparison, being researched and utilized within the UK, acknowledged and attested to by the Cancer Research UK and the National Cancer Institute on their respective websites.
