The main reason to use an infrared sauna is detox heavy metals such as led, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, aluminum, nickel and many others. These metals are present in our air, food and water. Everyone has heavy metal toxicity, the only difference being the degree of toxicity and the symptoms and disease they present in each individual.
One hundred thousand chemicals have been unleashed into our environment in the form of dumping and use in manufacturing. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a person has 700 chemicals on average in their body, with most plentiful being phthalates, found in artificially perfumes and colored personal care products (almost all of them). One can easily sweat these chemicals out of the body in an infrared sauna.
Control yeast, mold and fungi. Everyone has some measure of beneficial yeasts in his or her body. They are harmless and serve a purpose. Under the right conditions, some of them, such as Candida Albicans, overgrow and become pathogenic. They secrete extremely poisonous chemicals in our bodies such as alcohol and acetaldehyde. Many of these infections are caused and exacerbated by mercury and copper toxicity, problem that could resolve with sauna use. Yeasts, mold and fungi all tolerate heat poorly, making saunas ideal to keep them under control.
Parasites are found in the brain and other tissues of the body. Most parasites have no tests for their detection. Even when a parasite is detected, they are very resistant to treatment. They can be incredibly frustrating because any parasites killed have laid eggs which hatch in a few weeks and start the cycle all over again. Parasites are very intolerant to heat.
Infrared sauna therapy is ideal because it kills the parasites, the recurring parasite hatchlings, in addition to hard to reach areas that parasites may reside, like the brain.
Himalayan Salt Room
Taking wellness to another level, halotherapy—a.k.a. salt therapy—remains a top spa trend. (Halo is Greek for salt.) Salt therapy is similar to spending time in the salty sea air, which offers many more benefits than just relaxation on the beach.
The benefits of salt therapy are wide-ranging. Salt levels affect our cell activity, energy and blood sugar levels. A natural disinfectant, salt is antimicrobial, and antibacterial. Salt comes in empty processed forms or healthier pure sea salt (Himalayan and Dead Sea salt) that contain 84 elements and trace elements found in the human body. Dry salt air is more powerful than moist air.
The negatively charged ions in salt improve our health and mood. Inhaling particles may reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, improving respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Scientific studies show that people with asthma and other ailments breath easier after halotherapy.
The calming and detoxifying effects of halotherapy can support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Additional benefits are reduced stress and headaches, increased energy, and better sleep patterns. Salt ions purify the air and may increase lung capacity and reduce physical ailments for adults, children and athletes. Treatments are recommended to help keep the body healthy during flu or allergy seasons.
Skin conditions can also be improved with halotherapy (psoriasis, rashes, eczema, acne). Table salt, sodium chloride, is dehydrating, but pure mineral salts have natural moisturizing properties and support the skin’s water balance and barrier function by attracting moisture to the skin. Minerals are necessary for cell function and detoxification, so mineral salts have strong rejuvenating properties.
