Saunas aid in Detoxification & Cleansing
A sauna is a small room or house with dry or wet heat. Traditional saunas issue wet heat. The Sunlighten Infrared Sauna is dry heat) Its goal is to imitate the kind of heat you get radiating from the sun.*
Wet or dry sauna, the heat increases your body temperature and allows you to sweat out toxins through your skin. The heat of saunas help to cleanse us.
Traditional wet saunas allow your sweat content level of toxins to be about 3% while infrared saunas allow for up to 20% of your sweat to be toxins. Big difference in terms of what you can get rid of!
Here’s some tips: (please feel free to add your comments and “tips” as well)
Tip #1 Make sure you drink lots of fluids, to prevent dehydration. Water is good. My friend Gayle Davidson also recommends coconut juice as being very beneficial
Tip#2: Do saunas in moderation. Get into it gradually in terms of time. Build up the length of your time in sauna, possibly taking short breaks but don’t exceed 30 minutes.
