I’m in the air you breathe, in the clothes you wear, and the food you eat. What am I?
I’m a toxin, and every day you’re exposed to more than 700,000 of me. While it may not seem like a big deal, toxins eventually build up in your body and reach a tipping point, causing negative health consequences.
Brain fog, skin problems, and insomnia are just a few signs that your body needs a detox. If toxins are left in your body, you could even face disease.
Give your body the care it needs and undergo a relaxing far infrared sauna detox. At Selah Medi Spa in Katy, Texas, we offer a sauna detox as a way to chase harmful chemicals from your body and improve your overall health.
The truth behind toxins
Even the word “toxin” is enough to make you cringe. However, most people have little knowledge about how much damage toxins can cause.
When doctors discovered what caused “mad hatter disease” nearly 200 years ago, it was one of the first times that the harmful effects of toxins were discovered. In the past, toxins were attributed to specific occupations that caused exposure to chemicals.
Since the Industrial Revolution, we’ve been exposed to chemicals regularly, making toxins a part of our everyday life.
Some of the consequences of toxins include:
- Damaged organs
- Damaged DNA
- Hormone imbalances
- Inhibited ability of the body to detoxify
If toxins are left untreated, they can lead to disease. Luckily, there’s a relaxing way you can detoxify your body and promote a healthy lifestyle.
How it works
You’ve probably been in a sauna before. A far infrared sauna looks similar to a regular sauna — a small room made with wooden panels. Using infrared lights, the sauna works to heat your skin directly rather than heating the air inside an appliance, like a regular sauna does.
During your 30-minute session, the far infrared sauna reaches temperatures from 120 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit, which is lower than a traditional sauna. The lower temps cause the heat to move deeper into your skin and muscles and allow you to stay more comfortable during your session.
Infrared radiation gives off heat and light to increase your body’s temperature. This process opens your blood vessels, increases blood flow, and lowers your blood pressure. In an attempt to cool yourself down, your body sweats, releasing toxins and impurities.
Now you can relax while you experience the fantastic health benefits of a far infrared sauna detox. Not only do you get to escape from the outside, but for 30 minutes you’re also immersed in a heated paradise that allows you to burn up 600 calories.
Some benefits of an infrared sauna session include:
- Improved anxiety
- Aids in weight and fat loss
- Reduce the risk of heart disease and dementia
- Boosted immune system
- Anti-aging effects on skin
- Reduced depression
Infrared saunas are a safe and natural way to reset your health and experience a deeper connection with your body.
Am I a good candidate?
If you are pregnant or have a severe health issue, you may not be a good candidate to use a far infrared sauna — speak to your primary care physician first. Almost everybody outside of these parameters is a good candidate and could benefit from a far infrared sauna detox.
Far infrared saunas are generally safe to use. Because they use lower temperatures, they are safer than traditional saunas. Always drink plenty of water before, during, and after your session to avoid dehydration.
Get rid of 7 times more toxins
Some common toxins found in the body are cholesterol, alcohol, and aluminum. Far infrared saunas encourage sweat that gets rid of 7 times more toxins than a traditional sauna. That makes this treatment much more effective than other ways of detoxing.
Detoxing may be especially important for people dealing with drug and alcohol addiction. An infrared sauna can help reduce withdrawal symptoms and ramp up the detox process. Sweating also encourages the release of endorphins, which may improve your overall well-being.
