Imagine having a ‘healing tool’ you can use at any time you want to get over a cold, a hangover or even food poisoning.
A tool that can alleviate stiff muscles, joint pains and bad backs, naturally.
A tool that can make your skin “breathe” again, maybe for the first time in years, giving you that beautiful, radiant glow back!
And a tool that can activate a longevity gene so you can live a long, happy and healthy life…maybe even to 100 and beyond!
If you could have access to it daily or weekly, would you use it?
Most people would.
Yet, a small number of people don’t know it even exists, and even a smaller number that do, never take full advantage of it.
I am, of course, talking about infrared sauna therapy and today, you have a chance to make it part of your daily life.
Here are 9 infrared sauna benefits you should know about and incorporate into your life:
Unlike traditional saunas that make you sweat 95% water, Infrared saunas make you sweat 80-85% water through your skin, with the remaining 15-20% made up of heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia, uric acid and fat-soluble toxins!
This gives you a ‘deep cleanse’ and gets rid of nasty chemicals in your body.
When you are inside the sauna, the heat spikes up your heart to beat faster, increasing blood flow to the brain. Your face reflects this upward rush by glowing—leaving you with shiny and healthy skin.
When you use heat stress on the body, it releases nitric oxide that relaxes your muscles and dilates your blood vessels! This pushes oxygen-rich blood through your system, healing any ‘troubled areas’ like joint issues you may have dealt with for years!
The infrared heat can boost skin-cell energy, which means it protects you from oxidative stress—the free radicals that accelerate ageing!
Increase cell metabolism—helping your body break down sugar and turn it into natural energy, giving you a boost in vitality and wellbeing.
Release serotonin (your happy hormone) and instantly brings down your cortisol levels—the stress hormone! This will trigger a calm, serene feeling after each session!
According to Dr. Sara Gottfried, author of Younger: The Breakthrough Program to Reset our Genes and Reverse Ageing, sitting in a sauna (especially dry or infrared saunas) for just twenty minutes can turn on a longevity gene called: FOXO3.
This gene helps neutralize oxidative stress (free radicals that speed up ageing), kill of tumors and repair your DNA.
And based on that, you can triple your chances to live to a healthy 100!
Trigger an avalanche of sweat to pour out of your body—which discharges a natural antibiotic called dermcidin, which safeguards you from infections, bacteria and other dangerous bugs!Once you experience that ‘full body healing’ after just 30 minutes, you’d wonder how you ever lived without it.
The infrared sauna fires up your heart rate just like a cardiovascular workout would do. According the The Journal of American College of Cardiology, you can shed between 200 and 600 calories in just 30 minutes* while inside an IR sauna cabin. The best part? It all happens while you sit down, relax and de-stress. (*This is based on different health factors such as body weight, diet and lifestyle. Results may vary.)
Going to the spa shouldn’t be stressful. So why worry? Here are some basic rules of spa etiquette. Reading these basics will help you know what to expect and help you feel more at ease so that you can comfortably enter our serene atmosphere.
