As soon as you take a seat or lie down in one of our Full Spectrum Infrared saunas, infrared waves begin to penetrate 2 to 3 inches into your body. These waves create a deep heating action, which activates the sweat glands. Sweat glands function in our body to naturally eliminate and expel waste materials and toxins. Since skin is the largest organ in the human body, the deep heating of the sweat glands allows for a deep detoxifying sweat.
Sweating is directly linked to weight loss. A typical sweat session burns up to 600 calories. This rapid caloric burn boosts metabolism, which allows you to continue burning calories at a faster rate even after your sweat is over. Furthermore, the detoxification that occurs during sweating makes it easier for your body to naturally deplete fat stored during everyday life.
The body often stores toxins within fat deposits in order to protect organs and other critical body tissues from toxic exposure and attack. When these toxins are excreted through sweat, your body becomes free to gradually eliminate the fat that was previously required as a protective buffer. Many people also find that after they release additive substances such as sugar and candida through sweat, they are less drawn to unhealthy foods, and are able to make more nutritious choices.
You may also find that the release of heavy metals helps correct metabolic and hormonal imbalances, which can improve digestion and quality deep sleep. Science has also demonstrated that better sleep produces better weight loss results, meaning the better you sleep, the easier it’ll be for your body to lose those excess pounds.
