This is a dry heat which penetrates through the skin to the deep levels of tissue, particularly the fatty layer, to dissolve toxicity. Infrared light is part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum. Far- Infrared light easily penetrates human tissue. When this happens, it creates a natural resonance, which has many beneficial properties. Remember the last time you were sunbathing with sunscreen? Were you still hot? Of course you were because the sunscreen only stops the UV (ultraviolet light) from hitting your skin. The Far-Infrared heat (FIR light waves) penetrates your skin, giving you natural warmth. You can be exposed to Far-Infrared heat for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn. The dry heat in the infrared sauna gently detoxifies organic and inorganic toxins stored in fat.
Infrared sauna detoxifies seven times more heavy metals than a traditional hot rock or steam sauna. In one study performed by American researchers, the sweat of people using a conventional sauna was found to be 95 to 97% water while the sweat of those using an infrared thermal system was 80 to 85% water with the non-water portion principally cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals (such as mercury and aluminum), sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid. This unusually high concentration of heavy metals and other fat-soluble toxins is not found in the sweat from normal exercise. Mercury is the most toxic heavy metal on earth, second only to plutonium.
