Sauna

  Sauna baths have been around in ancient culture for     several thousand years. Ancient Egyptian text reference
    the use of heat therapy for tumors and the best known
    European sauna users were the people of Finland. Hot
    air baths are also common among Greeks, Romans,
    Germans and many others. 


The best known nineteenth century American sauna advocate was John Kellogg, M.D. as he researched various dry and wet sauna's assessing their value. His favorite was the Electric Lamp Sauna as he recognized the penetrating power of the radiant heat given off by the electric lamps. His device never caught on in America but thousands were sold in Europe including members of royal families. In the early years of the twentieth century sauna therapy started to be replaced by modern technology and pharmaceutical medicine.

Over the past 30 years sauna therapy has increased as a safe and powerful method of eliminating environmental toxins and addictive drugs. As the near infrared electric lamp sauna has been introduced it has many benefits that in my opinion lead the way as one of the finest and most powerful healing therapy of its kind.

Some of the amazing benefits of the Near Field Infrared Sauna:

• Removal of Toxic Metals

• Elminating Toxic Chemicals  (such as PCB's, VOC's and others)

• Improved Oxygenation

• Dilating Peripheral Vessels

• Normalizing the Acid-Alkaline Balance

 

• Increased Heart Rate and Enhanced Circulation
• Increasing Body Temperature which kills off low level bacteria and viruses
• Balances the Autonomic Nervous System for increased parasympathetic activity
• Anti-Aging Therapy
• Offers many of the Benefits of Exercise


Tumors, radiation poisoning and mutated cells -  Hyperthermia also helps kill other types of abnormal cells. Tumors, for example, tolerate heat poorly. Raising body temperature hastens their death. Though not a conventional method, hyperthermia is a well-researched therapy for cancer. Heat also disables or kills cells mutated by radiation or damaged by other toxins.

• Skin rejuvenation -  Sauna use slowly restores elimination through the skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and a major eliminative channel. In most people, it is inactive, congested and toxic. Sun exposure, use of synthetic clothing, bathing in chlorinated water and exposure to hundreds of chemicals damage the skin. Excessive sympathetic nervous system activity and emotions such as fear, anger and guilt cause blood to be withdrawn from the skin, contributing to inactivity of the skin.

• Enhanced sweating -  Sweating in a sauna is a by-product of applying heat to the body. The sweating process gently and safely helps eliminate all heavy metals and toxic chemicals. Medical studies demonstrate that most toxins can be eliminated through the skin, relieving the burden on the kidneys and liver. Sweating increases dramatically in most people after several months of daily sauna use. Sweating during exercise is not nearly as effective for detoxification because exercise activates the sympathetic nervous system. Sympathetic nervous activity inhibits toxin elimination.

• Exercise benefits - Saunas provide many of the benefits of exercise with much less expenditure of energy. These include enhanced circulation and oxidation of the tissues. Repeated sauna use can lower elevated blood pressure and improve the elasticity of the arteries.

• Fever therapy (hyperthermia) for infections - Raising body temperature powerfully assists the body to kill bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. Many people have a low body temperature and, for this reason, cannot get rid of chronic infections. Common sites of infections are the sinuses, ears, eyes, bladder, throat and intestines.


NOTE: Saunas are most helpful for cardiovascular rehabilitation, arthritis, allergies, skin conditions and chemical sensitivity.de-congesting the internal organs. Heating the body powerfully shunts blood toward the skin to dissipate heat. This decongests the internal organs and greatly stimulates circulation. Sinuses, joints and many other tissues benefit greatly.
