Infrared Saunas Q & A

What is an infrared sauna?

An infrared sauna uses heat and light to provoke a detoxification process in your body. Unlike traditional saunas that intensely heat the air in the sauna, an infrared sauna uses light waves to heat your body while the sauna remains at a comfortable room temperature.

This makes the therapy session enjoyable and relaxing even while you sweat away toxins and impurities. Because of the difference in the way heat is experienced, infrared saunas help you detoxify more deeply.

What are the benefits of infrared sauna therapy?

Both men and women see noticeable benefits after their sessions in the infrared sauna. Infrared saunas are useful for:

  • Asthma
  • Stress reduction
  • Candida
  • Toxin elimination
  • Acne
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Eczema
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Inflammation
  • Improved circulation
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Chronic pain
  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Relaxation

Other areas that benefit from infrared sauna therapy are varicose veins, soft tissue injuries, depression, immune system function, and body odor. In addition, the heat from the sauna relaxes your muscles and loosens tight joints.

What are toxins?

Toxins make their way into your body from a huge array of invaders, such as:

  • Pesticides
  • Fluoride
  • Insecticide
  • Sulfates
  • Phthalates
  • Detergents
  • Chlorine
  • Antibiotics
  • Food additives

Your body innately uses its organs to process and clean toxins. When your organs are burdened and taxed from an overload of toxins, inflammation sets in and wreaks havoc by breaking down your internal systems.

Some of the ways toxins cause problems are weight gain, insomnia, acne, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, weight gain, skin ailments, and brain fog. Infrared sauna therapy helps relieve your organs of some of the toxic burden by speeding up the detoxification process.

How often should I have infrared sauna therapy?

As often as you want! Infrared sauna therapy is an excellent way to relax, detoxify, and improve your overall health. You only need to schedule enough time in the sauna to break a sweat, which is usually about 15 or 20 minutes. 

Am I a candidate for infrared sauna therapy?

Infrared sauna therapy is generally safe for most people, however, you should avoid the sauna if you’re pregnant, have multiple sclerosis, are wearing a pacemaker, or have silicone implants. Men and women with brain tumors, lupus, or who have had a recent heart attack should talk to Dr. Helen before considering infrared sauna therapy.
