Sweating through skin is the best detoxification method. Our skin is our biggest elimination channel, and sweating is the only proven method, according to Dr. Sherry Rogers, MD (30), for getting the most damaging toxins out of the body. She also says that FIR sauna is the closest we can probably get to the fountain of youth.

Our environment is becoming increasingly more toxic. Our bodies retain many of these poisons, e.g. OCPs (organochlorinated pesticides) through air, water, and food products that we consume. When toxins are present, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. As mentioned above, most of our toxic load is stored in fat. But toxins can also be stored in muscle, soft tissues and the organs of our bodies. Through perspiration, FIR heat stimulates the release of these toxins and aids in the removal of them from the body. Saunas are moving the blood away from the center of the body toward the extremities, and decongesting through the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system, the respiratory system and the ducts of the liver and kidneys, pushing all of the garbage out so that it can be eliminated.

Because we may actually be missing our true body toxicity undetected in blood testing, we may be more toxic than we actually are aware of. Induced perspiration appears to be an important clinical tool to diminish the body burden of many harmful toxins, including OCPs. Under thermal stress, maximal rates of sweating may be as high as two to four liters per hour, and sweating rates for acclimatized people who regularly use saunas may be as high as two liters per hour. Regular sessions of induced perspiration should be considered cumulatively as a potential clinical modality to diminish body burdens of many xenobiotics, including OCP compounds (7).

Studies have also shown that when sweat is gathered up, over 100 times the safety levels of toxins were assessed—-toxins, e.g. glyphosate (Round-Up), heavy metals (arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury [32]), plastics (5; 6), and volatile organic compounds. FIR sauna also helps in the detoxification from mold and mycotoxin illness (29).

Things to Look for In a Sauna:

Infrared sauna is the best way to get that “river of sweat” comfortably. It’s crucial that you sweat to get the benefits. If you don’t sweat, it is not the right sauna, and if it is too miserable for you to sweat, you won’t want to do it. Infrared heat gets you to that “river of sweat” without you being uncomfortable.

Problems with other type of saunas are:

  • Heats the room and skin
  • Hard to breathe (steam)
  • Can create mold/grow bacteria

You will want to use a sauna that is low in radiation and has “full spectrum,” not just NEAR, and not just FAR infrared. You will also want the sauna to reach a therapeutic heat of over 160 degrees. That’s because it is at this temperature that the “river of sweat” is produced, where core body temperature is raised, where the production of heat shock proteins are produced and where the immune response is mobilized.

Infrared Protocols:

Use daily for a minimum of 30-45 minutes at 120-125 degree F for the first two weeks, then 125-135 degree F for the next two weeks.

Drink 8-16 ounces of water before and after each sauna session. Once a week add a few drops of trace minerals to your water supply.
