Healthy and Harmless
Clearlight Far Infrared Saunas are completely safe and produce the same far infrared heat that the sun produces. The Far-infrared heat is required for all living things for optimum health. The radiant heat from your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna surrounds you and penetrates deeply into your joints, muscles and tissues, speeding oxygen flow and increasing circulation.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF INFRARED SAUNAS
Using your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna helps to remove impurities from your cells, specifically the cells inside our fat where our body stores waste and harmful toxins such as cholesterol and heavy metals. When used properly, your Clearlight Far Infrared Sauna will help provide a lifetime of healthful living.
Completely harmless, we feel far infrared heat from such sources as the sun (without the harmful ultraviolet waves that the sun gives off) and fires. Just as visible light has a range of wavelengths (running from red to violet), so does infrared light: longer wavelength infrared waves are thermal, while short or near infrared waves are not hot at all, in fact, you cannot even feel them. It is the far infrared energy that is most beneficial, penetrating the skin and increasing circulation to help rid the body of harmful toxins.
“Our Clearlight Sauna has been a game-changer for surviving Wisconsin winter!
It has become a daily post-workout ritual of stretching and re-centering. Best purchase of the year. Thanks to Jen Rudis at Jenerate Wellness. Can’t say enough about the awesome customer service both pre-delivery and for post-delivery set-up help.”Mary, WI
Top Infrared Sauna Health Benefits
Weight Loss & Increased Metabolism
Toxins can actually interfere with natural body processes that regulate weight gain and loss, like the function of the thyroid. To facilitate this even further, I like to stick to a diet of organic fruits and vegetables so that my digestive system stays healthy and removes toxins that way as well. Similar to a workout, endorphins and a calorie-burning sweat are released. In fact, you can burn of up to 600 calories per 30-minute session (results may vary).
Detoxification & Disease Prevention
One of the biggest infrared sauna health benefits is its ability to increase your blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins in the body.
Daily sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.
“It has been known for decades that sweating is a wonderful way to get rid of stored chemicals, including heavy metals. In fact, sauna is one of the detoxification procedures used in the Environmental Units in Dallas (Dr. William Rea) and North Charleston (Dr. Allan Lieberman) where the sickest of folks go to heal.” Dr. Sherry Rogers, Total Wellness, May 2000.
Mental & Emotional Clarity
Many of these benefits are tied so closely together that it’s impossible to say which one causes the other. For example, both sleep and energy levels have been shown to have an effect on how well we’re able to think and focus. Detoxification helps me achieve a much clearer, sharper mind. The results also include better sleep, more energy, and overall improved health.
Muscle Pain Relief
Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscle, so they recover faster.
Muscles relax best when tissues are warm, for greater flexibility and range of motion. Far Infrared heat relieves muscle tension. The deep heat of far infrared saunas help peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Infrared heat also reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated.
For new users of infrared saunas, this is the benefit I hear the most about. Some users report a major energy increase after only one of two days of use. I remember feeling that exact same way when I started. Again, this energy increase is due to the release of toxins which affect the function of the thyroid–which is partially responsible for how energized we feel–and the function of enzymes, which are involved in a huge number of bodily processes.
Reduced Joint Pain, Headaches & Digestive Disorder
Toxins are believed to cause inflammation, which is your body’s response to stressful conditions, such as storing too many toxins. Inflammation can then cause conditions such as joint pain and arthritis, as well as digestive disorders and headaches. By purging the body of toxins, you can reduce inflammation and begin to alleviate other symptoms as well.
Another commonly reported benefit my customers rave about is better sleep. Some experts believe toxins in the body are strongly linked with insomnia. I certainly had a lot of trouble sleeping before I began using infrared saunas. Our sleep cycle is a complex interaction that involves so many different systems and substances in our body, including hormones, blood sugar, metabolism, and mineral balance. Throwing off something like your mineral balance by having too many heavy metals in your body can put your sleep cycle in turmoil.
This one is obvious. If water is passing through your skin regularly, it’s going to take some of the things that cause breakouts with it, like bacteria and dirt. It’s also going to naturally moisturize your skin and prevent flakiness. Some of my more beauty-conscious clients also report fresher, glowing skin and reduced wrinkles and age lines for a younger appearance.
Immune System Boost
The deep heating from the Clearlight Sauna True Wave II™ infrared heaters will raise your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. How does this benefit the body? Fever is the body’s natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection.
This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
