Dr. Oz on Oprah – Why an Infrared Sauna is good for your Health!
The Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat emitted by Far-Infrared energy treatment devices such as the Sauna Dome and the Vita-Mat is a naturally occurring energy that heats objects by direct light conversion (DLC).
DLC warms only the object and does not raise the temperature of the surrounding free air. The infrared heat rays warm the body directly. The body then absorbs as much as 93% of the heat generated by this healing energy.
All life requires FIR heat from the sun. FIR heat is not ultraviolet radiation but a narrow band of energy within the 5.6 to 15 micron level. This type of energy travels 2-3” deep into the body to increase circulation and nourish damaged tissue. The sun is the primary source of radiant energy, but not all of this energy is beneficial to your body. Although life needs energy from the sun, too much harsh sunlight damages the skin.
FIR heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation. For years, the healthcare industry recommended infrared heat lamps as a source of F.I.R. heat but the lamps were cumbersome, extremely hot and difficult to maintain at a constant temperature.
The Far-Infrared energy device, that we recommend, uses the same far-infrared heat therapy technology used in sports medicine to treat athletic injuries and in hospitals to keep newborn infants warm. Health professionals have used red infrared heat lamps for decades to treat muscle and joint problems.
In hospital baby care units, incubators are often equipped with infrared heating systems to keep new-born babies warm. Life needs energy from the sun.
Pain Relief With Infrared Therapy
FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation.
Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process.
The Far-Infrared energy equipment we use has been very successful in treating arthritis, rheumatism, muscle spasms, back pain, headache and many other painful maladies. Hypothermia represents a natural approach in combating disease since it involves inducing an exaggerated version of the body’s own fever state.
Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water-soluble and the body sweats it out along with toxins.
Detoxifying the body helps in weight control. People who have unsuccessfully tried many diets often find success with far infrared saunas because they are able to eliminate chemicals stored in your cells.
This makes weight control much easier. I say “control” because detoxifying will also help those who have a problem keeping their weight up to normal.
The health benefits of traditional saunas include alleviating pain and stiffness from arthritis and cleansing the skin by inducing heavy sweating. In addition, the steam of traditional saunas can be helpful in relieving respiratory problems such as congestion and bronchitis.
The Far Infrared sauna is the safest, most efficacious and economical way of eliminating stored toxins, making it a household necessity. I’m convinced that the Far Infrared sauna is something that everyone should do to restore health. The Far Infrared sauna is far safer and more tolerable than a conventional sauna because it uses a heat energy that penetrates tissues, triggering mobilization of chemicals from fat storage, directly into the sweat.
The Far Infrared sauna’s energy penetrates deeply into the body producing a warming, relaxing and detoxifying effect.
