Benefits of Infrared Saunas

You may wonder what is so special about Far Infrared Heat. Is it a natural health item? What health benefits does it pose for me?

Infrared is an extremely natural heat source that is emitted by the sun! It is what causes plants to grow and the world to function accordingly. This energy can enter our bodies and heat it from within. Due to these penetrating properties, this particular heat source enables deeper healing and detoxification. As the heat pierces the body and muscles it increases blood circulation and metobolic rates. This increase enables the body to heal faster and more efficiently.

Take into consideration when you get sick or your body is trying to rid itself of illness, the bodies first reaction is to raise the bodies temperature in the form of a fever. Fevers are a way of healing and detoxing the body of impurities. Far Infrared Heat could be compared to giving your body a fever so it doesn’t have to take all the energy to do so itself. Not only that, but it enables your body to heal and purify itself to a level beyond what you’ve experienced before! Individuals often use infrared heat to combat and beat illnesses such as Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, and heavy metal poisoning.

Beyond healing from illnesses , using Far Infrared Saunas is an effective way to lose weight. As mentioned before the heat source enters the body to increase the circulation, but also increases metabolic rates. This means an increase in calories burned! Some compare the amount of calories burned to that of a workout at a gym!

If you need help healing, detoxifying or losing weight Infrared Saunas are a great place to start. We specifically carry our own brand of Fir-Real Saunas to help guarantee quality and support of our products. Any Fir-Real Sauna purchased through HEALTHandMED.com come with an exclusive 1 year warranty to insure your satisfaction.

How to buy Infrared Sauna Blankets

An infrared sauna blanket is one of the most ideal ways for you to detox your body. When you’re detoxing it is important that you stay well hydrated and that you replenish your body with the minerals that you lost through sweating. An infrared sauna blanket allows you to do just that by putting back the minerals that you sweated out during your detox and by keeping your hydrated so that your skill is not only toxin-free, but moisturized and healthy as well.

An infrared sauna blanket can adjust from 77 degrees all the way up to 176 degrees, so you can set the temperature at the limit that you think is best for your body. Sauna blankets make the perfect addition to any home, salon or spa. They are easily customizable to each individual’s user preferences as well with their various heat and timer settings.

One of the most popular reasons why people use sauna blankets is to help them shed pounds through getting rid of excess water weight and toxins in their bodies that are weighing them down. Sauna blankets detoxify the body while burning fat at the same time. They help remove unwanted fat in your tummy, waist, arms, legs and hips by quickening the lipolysis process. They also promote perspiration, which is what allows harmful toxins, heavy metals and other waste that is built up in the body to be emitted from the body.

Sauna blankets also help speed up the metabolism and enhance the body’s absorption of nutrients. They can even help improve the immune system and help prevent the growth of cancer cells. They serve as a physical therapy for myalgia and neurosis by balancing the autonomic nervous system. They can also have a beneficial effect on the liver, sore muscles and the body’s lactic acid. Sauna blankets can even aid with sleep disorders and can help diminish the signs of inflammation.

The various benefits to using sauna blankets are many. HEALTHandMED offers a variety of sauna blankets as well as other products that are beneficial to your health online where it’s easy and convenient for you to shop for the health products that you need.

Natural Pain Relief And The FIR Sauna

Nothing can be more crippling to a person that pain. Drug based pain relief has continually been the solution to this problem, only most Americans are tired of the associated negative side effects that come with continued drug use. In recent years this problem has been addressed by the immense growth in portable sauna use to mitigate pain naturally. A new type of pain has come into view among scientists called HRP or “Heat Responsive Pain.” Any common pain that can be relieved through heat therapy falls under the HRP category. Impressive results from treating conditions such as upper-body, menstrual, and lower-back pain have come from researchers using continuous low-level heat therapy to treat these and other HRP ailments. “Through new clinical research, we have found that heat activates complex neurologic, vascular and metabolic mechanisms to mediate the transmission of pain signals and effectively provide relief for a variety of pain conditions,” explained the Past-President of the American Pain Society and Clinical Health Psychologist, Riverhills Healthcare, Cincinnati, OH -Peter Vicente. He went on to say that “for centuries, healthcare providers have used topical heat to relieve minor aches and pains. Today, we are just beginning to understand the full range of therapeutic benefits that heat offers.” By dilating peripheral blood vessels with infrared heat from a FIR sauna, muscle and soft tissue relief can be maximized. Even the speed of injury recovery is increased because of the increased blood circulation brought on by infrared heat therapy.

In a dental study where repeated heat applications were employed , an eventual abolishment of the whole nerve response responsible for pain arising from dental pulp (center soft part of the tooth) was the end result. A two year long controlled trial with 46 random patients suffering from chronic pain was conducted. All of the 46 patients received four weeks of treatment from multiple disciplines. 22 of the subjects were given 15-minute daily FIR sauna treatments in addition to the other treatments. After the two years had gone, the subjects in the FIR sauna group were 37% more likely to have returned to work, have improved sleep, and tended toward greater improvement in anger scores and pain behavior scores. This pain relief may be a result of a reduction in muscle spasms and the relaxation of other irritable tight tissues.

By undergoing infrared heat therapy, many people have see the benefits of natural pain relief from numerous different painful health conditions. Some of them included: Low Back Pain, Muscle Pain (notably post exercise muscle pain), Muscle Tension, Neuralgia (related to disc protrusion), Pain which prevented sleep or limited usable sleeping positions, Adhesions (scarring) from athletic injuries, trauma or repetitive stress syndromes, Arthritis, gouty, rheumatoid or degenerative joint disease, Brain Injury (The effects of acceleration-deceleration injury or brain contusions) and Compression fractures, In one person pain stopped for three days of after only a single treatment, TMJ (arthritis and muscle spasms have been reduced or eliminated), Post traumatic shock has been reversed, Shoulder Pain, and Spinal Cord Shock. If pain relief without the negative side effects of drugs is what you are looking for, then there is hope. Whether it is a portable sauna at your house or the infrared sauna at the health spa, pain relief can be on your horizon.

Sweating and Safe Detox

The blogosphere has been buzzing with talk about the the possible dangers of saunas, sweat lodges, and steam rooms. This has led to people doubting whether or not sweating is a valid method to get a good detox. For years saunas have been regarded as a reliable way to detox. Now people are left wondering if something has changed? Most of the confusion surrounding the safe use of saunas came about as a result of a tragic accident that took place in the fall of 2009 at a “Spiritual Warrior” retreat in Arizona. Eighteen people were hospitalized and three died because of the drastic over use of the sweat lodge at the retreat. Dehydration was the main cause of the deaths.

portable infrared saunaUnderstandably, people have started questioning the safety of sweat lodges and the other type of sweat detox therapy. What most people don’t know is that of all the many types of workouts, diets and detox methods, using a sauna is one of the easiest and safest. Infrared saunas in particular are a quick and easy way to induce healthy sweating to stimulate the cardiovascular system. The American Medical Association explains that “many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of indoor saunas may impact a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective, as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise.” Many people are unaware that using a sauna for a cardio workout, detox or a diet is one of the safest and easiest ways to go about it. Infrared saunas are especially a good sauna for stimulating detox through sweating. The American Medical Association (AMA) explained that “many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of indoor saunas may impact a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective, as a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise.” One of the main factors to keep in mind when using an infrared sauna is to stay hydrated. Drinking a glass of water before and after a 15-30 minute session will keep you appropriately hydrated, and thus able to detox. In addition to staying hydrated, another important factor to be considered when regularly detoxing in a sauna is using a quality mineral supplement. In addition to all of the heavy metals that are secreted from the body, also some good minerals are lost and should be replaced by adding mineral drops to your water before or after your sauna sessions. There is no need for confusion when it comes to infrared saunas, sweat lodges and detox. The ease of use and effectiveness of a sauna certainly outweighs the sight risk of overuse and dehydration. Hopefully people will better understand that now.
