Unlike traditional dry heat saunas that use harsh temperatures to warm the air, infrared saunas use a milder temperature environment through infrared light that heats your body directly without warming the air around you. Heat waves from infrared rays deeply penetrate tissue and therefore provide a deeper, more therapeutic, detoxifying sweat. With infrared sauna therapy, you can lose weight, relax, promote cell health, relieve unwanted pain, increase your blood circulation, lower blood pressure, and purify your skin. The entire process produces a host of health benefits by helping the body get back into balance.
Lymph fluid contains minerals and proteins necessary for organ health as well as infection-fighting white blood cells that prevent illness. Lymphatic vessels also transport bacteria, viruses, damaged cells and even cancer cells out of tissue fluids to help prevent the development of chronic diseases and disorders. Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, weight gain and even multiple sclerosis are just a few illnesses that can arise from a dysfunctional lymphatic system. Draining your lymphatic system to rid your body of toxins and pathogens is essential and may help you lose weight, ward off osteoporosis and enhance the functioning of your immune system.
Gentle Cleansing with the ionic foot detox allows your body to rid toxins that we are subjected to on a daily basis and that can build up over years. This is a great addition to incorporate with the detoxification and food elimination program I provide in my practice. I recommend a very slow process of cleansing that does not abruptly alter your body’s current status. In doing so you will feel more energized and in the process you will not stress your body out more than necessary.
Recall the way your body felt the last time you stood next to a waterfall or walked along a beach with the waves breaking at your feet. You breathed deeper into your lungs and abdomen; your brain cleared and the pains in your joints subsided. You felt relaxed and at peace with the world.
These invigorating reactions were caused by the ionization of trillions of water molecules as they crashed to earth.
