Saunas and Contradictions
Detox from a Sunlight Sauna is 7 to 10 times greater than conventional saunas because it operates more effectively at temperatures 60 to 80 degrees lower than conventional saunas.
In a Sunlight Sauna, the average person sweats out 20% toxins and 80% water! In conventional saunas the average person sweats out 3% toxins and 97% water.
Detox therapy is also useful for those suffering from immune system problems that including chronic fatigue syndrome, environmental illness/multiple chemical sensitivity, and fibromyalgia.
The United States Centers for Disease Control estimate that over 80% of all illnesses have environmental and lifestyle causes.
Therefore, detox has also become a prominent treatment as people have become more aware of environmental pollution.
For example, it is estimated that one in every four Americans suffers from some level of heavy metal poisoning, including mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminum.
Toxins in the body also include chemical pollutants such as pesticides, DDT, PCB (polychlorinated biphenyls) and food additives. Drugs and alcohol also have toxic effects in the body.

Relax with Therapeutic Far Infrared Saunas

Relaxation is more important to your health than most people realize. According to New York Times best-selling author and fitness expert Jorge Cruise – and many other health professionals, the more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body will produce. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate, blood pressure, and encourages the deposit of any excess calories into the midsection.
Scientific evidence shows that far infrared therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during a sauna session, they drop afterwards.
Burn Calories in a 30 Minute Sunlight Sauna Session!
“Saunas are an important aid to weight loss and thyroid repair because as you lose weight, fat tissue releases stored toxins such as PCBs and pesticides.”
-Dr. Mark Hyman, author of NY Times best selling book “Ultrametabolism” and Sunlight Saunas customer.
Studies have shown a 30 minute far infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories . As the body works to cool itself while using a far infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Blood flow during whole body hyperthermia is reported to rise from a normal 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.
