Infrared Sauna and Your Total Wellness
By Dr. Mary Starr Carter
The body accumulates toxins just from everyday breathing, eating and living. The less movement and exercise we get the less our bodies can eliminate these toxins. Sweating is very good for us because it is nature's way of removing toxins from the body. But think about how often do you really sweat?
Once a week, once a month….. Never ….
Sweating is a great way to get and stay healthy.
Verda Jones found Far Infrared to be very healing for her arthritis pain condition in her hands and back.
“The thing that I can tell instantly is the pain relief during and after the sauna…”
I recently visited Jones Health Essentials after seeing Verda Jones in April for the birth of my son in NY. She was slim, fit and about 10lbs lighter. I asked her “what have you been doing?” She said well everyday she was sweating outside in her garden and then 3 times a week she walked for 20 minutes on her treadmill and laid on her Far Infrared Bio Mat for 30 minutes.
The Biomat is a mat that contains Far Infrared technology along with Ion and Mineral technology to super charge it and create even more of a relaxing feeling. She says the BioMat really helps her relax when she is stressed. Well the result was 10lbs released, a lot less pain, better health and about 5 years more youthfulness in her skin and face as I observed her.
Here are some keys, how Far Infrared Heat, Mats and Saunas work:
(This information is not meant to diagnose and prescribe; it is taken from the literature received with the BioMat, and Infrared Sauna.) :
Strengthens the cardiovascular system
Deep Far Infrared penetration (up to 1.5 inches some literature says 6-8 inches)
Detoxifies heavy metals, hydrocarbon residues, alcohol, nicotine, sodium and cholesterol.
Helps purify fat cells, burns calories and controls weight.
Improves and clears cellulite.
Most effective way in burning calories. Burns up to 500 calories in one full session.
Effective for treating sprains, muscles spasms, and joint stiffness: relieves aches and pains.
Improves you immune system by sweating at a lower more comfortable temperature than a conventional hot sauna. Increases overall health and resistance to disease.
Sharpens senses and relieves stress, leaving you felling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Improves skin within a few minutes. Helps scars and burns.
Acne, psoriasis, and eczema conditions will also improve.
(I agree with this one. My skin was so soft after this treatment)
The Infrared Sauna stimulates endorphins of the brain and kills organisms like bacteria and parasites.
Increases blood flow
Destroys cancer and viral cells without harming surrounding healthy cells. (Harvard Med School)
Now this is very interesting because Nancy Weber, a good friend and colleague in Young living Essential Oils, told me just this week that in July, she was struggling with Lyme's disease and using Essential oils to help her condition. When she started using her Young Living oils along with her Saunas she started getting quicker and more dramatic results. “The Far Infrared sauna drives the oils in much deeper” When I saw her for the first time in 2 years she looked 10 years younger. I couldn't believe it, even after her terrible summer.
So enhance your infrared sauna with Young Living essential oils before your treatment. Don't forget that you really need to take a shower in clean chlorinated free water after your sauna to wash off the toxins.
So far during my vacation I have only done one Sauna treatment and 2 Biomat treatments. My skin and face are clear and smooth; I got rid of a headache with the treatments and feel really refreshed. I LOVE Far Infrared Treatments.
If you struggle with Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Cancer, or an Autoimmune Condition you may want to invest in a Sauna. It may be the piece of health puzzle you are missing.
