Virtually every day our bodies are exposed to hundreds of thousands of toxic compounds that invade our air, water, and the soil in which our food grows. Today, more than 77,000 chemicals are in active production in this country and more than 3,000 are in our food supply. The EPA estimates that our bodies cannot metabolize over 20,000 of these chemicals. Many are instead stored in fat cells throughout our bodies, where they continue to accumulate. Most of us, in fact, have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies.
When combined, these chemicals and heavy metals may create a situation of chronic toxic overload. Furthermore, as these toxins continue to build up, they can cause enzyme dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies, create hormonal imbalances, damage the delicate brain chemistry, and can even lead to cancer and other debilitating chronic illnesses.
Many signs and symptoms have been linked to chemical and/or heavy metal toxicity:
- Digestive Problems
- Night Sweats
- Cold Hands/Feet
- Brain Fog
- Inability to Lose or Gain Weight
- Chronic Fatigue
- Dark Circles Under the Eyes
- Muscle/Joint Pain
- Chemical Sensitivity
- Low Body Temperature
Our level of toxic exposure is often far in excess of our body’s natural elimination mechanisms. We believe to stay healthy and strong in this chemical-ridden world, it is essential to help the body with its removal of harmful waste products. Our preferred method of effective, whole-body detoxification is the Far Infrared Sauna. This therapy boosts the body’s ability to detoxify, leading to significant and lasting health benefits. We further believe that Far Infrared Sauna may be the most effective method of removing both chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body.
Our bodies, incapable of metabolizing and excreting all toxins it is exposed to, oftentimes stores toxins in fat to temporarily protect the body (called lipophilic toxins). The body’s tissues normally produce a small amount of infrared energy, which is used by the body for a number of healing processes. By delivering penetrating warmth to the body, the far infrared sauna increases the body’s own infrared energy levels, encouraging a slight rise in body temperature that boosts its natural detoxification systems. Unlike heat produced by traditional saunas, the infrared light spectrum is able to safely penetrate tissues to a much greater depth. The tissues selectively absorb these healthy far infrared frequencies, as the water in the cells react in a process called “resonant absorption.” This resonant absorption occurs when the frequency of the far infrared matches the frequency of the water in the cell causing toxins to be dropped off into the blood steam and excreted in sweat, feces, and urine, leaving behind a healthier, invigorated you!
