Their argument is supported by the human body itself, which radiates infrared energy for the benefits of warmth and tissue repair. 3. For many chronically ill patients as well as people who are well and wish to stay that way by reducing their toxic burden, the far infrared sauna is the detox method of choice. 6.
Far infrared radiant heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation. 12. The lower heat range of far infrared saunas is safer for people with cardiovascular risk factors or fragile health because lower temperatures don’t dramatically elevate heart rate and blood pressure. 16. Far infrared radiant heat is a form of naturally occurring energy that heats objects by direct light conversion.
Far infrared sauna use can help promote rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect on the fibroblasts, the connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury. Far infrared saunas require 90 percent less electrical energy than conventional saunas, and no plumbing is required for a far infrared sauna. 26. Far infrared saunas are now used in health facilities for a range of health problems such as menopause, ulcers, insomnia, asthma, bronchitis, ear infections, and allergies. 28. Unlike a traditional sauna, which requires a closed atmosphere to maintain heat levels required for therapeutic results, a far infrared sauna can be used with its door or window completely open if far infrared penetration is the only objective. 30. In addition to hemlock, wood choices for far infrared sauna construction include basswood, birch, oak, poplar, spruce and western red cedar. It is also abundantly available, which means the end cost to the consumer is less than it might be for another wood type. 38. And weight gain, muscle loss, decreased libido, wrinkles in our skin, and a growing number of aches and pains are probably other distressing concerns. Some people try to defy nature by undergoing cosmetic surgery, utilizing every “anti-aging” skin care product available, taking stress management or meditation courses, or relocating to less polluted areas. Qualified health professionals agree, for example, that regular exercise and good nutrition can have a long-term positive impact on a person’s quality of life. And let’s not forget how quitting smoking has been shown to improve respiratory health and reduce the risk of cancer in many vital bodily organs. Exposure to this highly toxic substance can reportedly increase blood pressure and cause fertility problems, nerve disorders, muscle and joint pain, and memory or concentration difficulties. Their assertion is supported by the human body itself, which emits infrared energy for purposes of warmth and tissue repair. Saunas have long been a tried, tested and true source of health benefits. For centuries, traditional saunas have helped to improve cardiovascular function, promote body detoxification, maintain general health, and foster greater relaxation in sauna bathers around the world. For many sauna enthusiasts, the traditional hot sauna – the Finnish sauna – remains the preferred route to renewed health and a rejuvenated spirit. Sometimes called radiant heat saunas, soft heat saunas or heat therapy rooms, far infrared saunas offer most of the same benefits that traditional Finnish saunas do, but they do so at lower, more tolerable temperatures.
While the air temperature in a typical Finnish sauna bath ranges from 170 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (77 to 93 degrees Celsius), such temperatures aren’t required in a far infrared sauna to induce optimal bather perspiration. By penetrating the bather’s body and effecting a deep, satisfying heat of just 100 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit (38 to 55 degrees Celsius), the far infrared rays can create an enjoyably cleansing, detoxifying and revitalizing experience for the bather.
Other uses of infrared energy have resulted in infrared hair dryers, infrared foot massagers, infrared pillows, infrared underwear, and even infrared leg wraps for horses.
Even in our local neighborhoods, many of us worry about rising crime rates and growing threats to our personal safety. And, as if those problems were not enough for us to worry about, many of us have major health issues with which we have no choice but to contend. Fortunately, though, we are not powerless against these mighty and malicious microscopic menaces. In fact, we can start doing something about them right now - we can start fighting back with far infrared sauna detoxification therapy. Far infrared saunas are revered by scientists and health professionals around the world for their ability to help flush out many of the toxic chemicals, heavy metals and other destructive agents that have accumulated deep within the bloodstream, skin and other vital organs of people from all walks of life. For individuals affected by mercury toxicity, lead poisoning, and other life-threatening exposures, the far infrared sauna is often viewed as an essential component of detoxification therapy. If you think that only people in high-risk occupations qualify for far infrared sauna detoxification therapy, you’re wrong.
In other words, you may find yourself talking about detoxification and far infrared saunas sooner than you ever thought you would.  Chronic Fatique Syndrome By Pertti Jalasjaa Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) has been enfeebling patients and confounding medical professionals for years.
National Institutes of Health claim that, for some people, chronic fatigue syndrome can first appear after a cold, bronchitis, hepatitis or an intestinal bug; for others, it can follow a bout of glandular fever.
CDC and CFIDS Association of America announced in 2001 that stress may exacerbate but most likely does not cause the disorder. On the polemical subject of CFS prevalence, Dr. Edelson and Deborah Mitchell, authors of What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Autoimmune Disorders, put it like this: “The hallmark of CFIDS is overwhelming, persistent, incapacitating fatigue that leaves those afflicted unable to carry on their normal physical functions. Rogers declares in her book Detoxify or Die, “The bottom line is that sweat is the only proven method for getting the most dangerous toxins out of the body.” In their studies of far infrared saunas, researchers in Japan have concluded that perspiration induced by far infrared sauna use contains as much as three times the amount of toxins contained in sweat expelled during exercise.
While many people use saunas primarily for relaxation and stress reduction, the other health benefits are increasing the popularity of saunas. An often agonizing muscle disorder in which the thin film or tissue holding muscle together becomes thickened or tightened, fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal aches, pains and stiffness, soft tissue tenderness, mild to incapacitating fatigue, and disturbed sleep. The pain of fibromyalgia is typically felt in the neck, back, shoulders and hands, but it is not exclusive to those areas.
Based on criteria set in 1990 by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), a diagnosis of fibromyalgia requires a patient to have experienced widespread pain for a minimum of three months in 11 of 18 tender muscle sites. Most sufferers of fibromyalgia are women of childbearing age, but it has also been known to strike men, children and the elderly.As for what causes fibromyalgia, many theories exist. Nenah Sylver extols the sauna for its ability to increase cardiovascular activity and white blood cell, enzyme, and norepinephrine, beta-endorphin and possibly thyroxin production. As they, in turn, help to enhance circulation, increase waste removal and nutrient absorption, raise metabolism, and promote the elimination of toxins, foreign proteins and microbes, Dr. Rogers calls the far infrared sauna “infinitely more tolerable,” particularly for people with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome or multiple sclerosis, because it can function effectively at a much lower temperature than a conventional Finnish sauna. “I’m convinced that the far infrared sauna is something that everyone should do to restore health,” declares Dr. In adults, lead can reportedly increase blood pressure and cause fertility problems, nerve disorders, muscle and joint pain, irritability, and memory or concentration problems.


National Safety Council (NSC), “Even very low levels of exposure can result in reduced IQ, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, behavioral problems, stunted growth, impaired hearing, and kidney damage. In fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared that no level of mercury can be considered to be safe, as it is the most toxic non-radioactive element on Earth. In their book What Your Doctor May Not Be Telling You About Autoimmune Disorders, Dr. Like so many other heavy metals, cadmium can be found in air, water, soil and food. Noting that the highest contributor to cadmium toxicity is cigarette smoke, the Center for Environmental and Integrative Medicine (CEIM) in Knoxville, TN, states that “cadmium can weaken the immune system and allow bacteria, viruses, yeast and parasites to proliferate.
Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have all classified inorganic arsenic as a known human carcinogen. Since arsenic is found naturally in the environment, humans risk exposure to it when they eat food, drink water, breathe air, or come in contact with contaminated soil or water. The same can be said for aluminium compounds. People may also be exposing themselves to aluminium compounds when they ingest medicinal products like certain antacids, laxatives and buffered aspirin or have skin contact with aluminium metal, antiperspirants, or other substances that contain aluminium or aluminium compounds. In these children, the bone damage is caused by aluminium in the stomach preventing the absorption of phosphate, (which is) required for healthy bones.”Lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic and aluminium are just five of an intimidating number of toxins capable of severely compromising your health. Sherry Rogers writes, “The lungs, urine, stool and sweat are the main vehicles the body has for getting rid of nasty chemicals, but by far sweat is the most efficacious. As well, far infrared saunas can produce up to three times the sweat volume of a conventional hot air sauna while operating at a considerably cooler air temperature range of 110 to 130 degrees versus 180 to 235 degrees for hot air saunas. In other words, sweating in a far infrared sauna can be a very efficient method of detoxification. Even though sweating is a natural function of the human body, many people do not perspire properly because their skin has been damaged or deactivated by, among other culprits, chemicals in bath water, lotions, soaps and deodorants.
Fortunately for these people, far infrared sauna therapy can greatly help to restore the skin’s eliminative powers. For if contemporary society placed more of an emphasis on the pernicious effects of mercury exposure, perhaps fewer people would be victimized by related illnesses and diseases. Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive element on Earth, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has proclaimed that no level of mercury can be regarded as being safe. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced in a 2001 study that one in every 10 American women of childbearing age is at risk for having a baby born with neurological problems due to mercury exposure. There are three principal types of mercury, and each type presents a serious health hazard to humans. Exposure to any form of mercury on a repeated basis, or even a very high single dose, can lead to chronic mercury poisoning. People with chronic mercury poisoning frequently experience wide mood swings, becoming irritable, frightened, excited or depressed very quickly for no apparent reason. A person with chronic mercury poisoning may also experience difficulty balancing and walking. In What Your Doctor May Not Be Telling You About Autoimmune Disorders, authors Dr. Environmental Protection Agency declared scrap dental amalgam a hazardous waste… Evidence now shows that mercury amalgams are the major source of mercury exposure for the general public, at rates six times higher than mercury from fish and seafood.” The guide further states, “Since mercury vapors are continuously released from amalgam fillings, as long as you have mercury dental fillings, you inhale mercury vapor 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And, he notes, “You will derive immediate benefits from sauna detoxification, such as mental alertness, a sense of inner cleanliness, and enhanced well-being.” The sauna of choice for many health professionals who routinely prescribe sauna detoxification or sauna therapy is the far infrared sauna.
And if you decide to purchase a far infrared sauna for any of its many therapeutic properties, be sure to research your choices thoroughly, as satisfied sauna buyers are typically well-informed sauna buyers. Opening the Sauna Door to Better Healthby Pertti Olavi Jalasjaa You may think of a home sauna as being little more than a luxury, an object that offers pleasure and comfort but is ultimately inessential to your well-being.
However, the results of decades of research may just convince you of what sauna enthusiasts have believed for centuries – that regular sauna bathing offers significant, perhaps even life-saving, health benefits. A chief objective of any sauna bath is to make you perspire, and perspiration is a natural, necessary function of the human body.
Rogers notes in her book, Detoxify or Die, “The bottom line is that sweat is the only proven method for getting the most dangerous toxins out of the body.” Researchers in Japan have concluded that perspiration induced by far infrared sauna use contains as much as 300 percent more toxins than sweat expelled during exercise.
Not only has sauna bathing been shown to encourage deeper, more restful sleep, far infrared sauna therapy has proved effective in alleviating pain associated with arthritis, backache, bursitis, fibromyalgia, headache, sprains, strains and other muscular and skeletal ailments. “I am convinced that the far infrared sauna is something that everyone should do to restore health,” contends Dr.
Indeed, especially for people burdened by toxic build-up, heart disease, stress and anxiety disorders, and weight problems, it seems the home sauna is now regarded much less as a luxury item and much more as a necessity for healthy living.     Raynaud's Disease and Sauna Bathing News Worth Circulating by Pertti Olavi Jalasjaa As numerous online and print articles declare, sauna bathing has helped countless people who suffer from asthma, bronchitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and many other physical ailments. Named after Maurice Raynaud, the French physician who first described it in 1862, it is a disorder of the blood vessels that supply blood to your skin. During a Raynaud’s attack, these arteries narrow, limiting blood flow to affected areas. Accurately discussing Raynaud’s can be challenging for some people, as two types of it exist, and each type has two names. What most laymen generically call Raynaud’s disease could be either primary Raynaud’s or secondary Raynaud’s. Primary Raynaud’s, the most common form of the disorder, is what physicians and medical textbooks correctly refer to as Raynaud’s disease. For some people, however, cold is not even necessary; emotional stress is enough to instigate an episode. In both cases, the body seems to exaggerate its natural response of trying to preserve its core temperature by slowing blood supply to its extremities. Also, skin ulcers or gangrene could develop if an artery to an affected area becomes completely blocked. Depending on the cause and severity of symptoms, treatment can take many forms. Medications may include alpha blockers, calcium channel blockers, or vasodilators, all of which help relax blood vessels. For example, during a session in either type of sauna, the bather’s heart responds to the sauna heat by increasing blood flow and perspiration production to cool the bather’s body. In this way, sauna bathing is a form of cardiovascular exercise. Perspiring in a sauna, especially a far infrared sauna, also helps the body rid itself of harmful toxins that have built up over time. Meanwhile, you’d be wise to investigate the many ways a home sauna, be it a traditional Finnish sauna or a far infrared sauna, can improve your health and happiness. Insomnia and the Far Infrared Saunaby Pertti Olavi JalasjaaYou’ve wisely avoided sleeping pills, but it seems as if you’ve tried almost everything else to get a better night’s sleep.
By raising your body temperature in a sauna bath right before bedtime, you compel it to normalize itself afterwards, and it’s this temperature readjustment following the sauna bath that helps to improve the quality of your sleep. Of course, other effects of the heat bath can certainly contribute to improvements in your sleep. And by helping to alleviate any existing physical pain like headaches, muscle strain or joint stiffness, a sauna bath can effectively disarm many of the aggravations that might have impeded truly restful sleep. Home saunas are available in many styles and sizes.
Whether it’s a do-it-yourself sauna kit, a modular sauna unit, a traditional Finnish sauna or a far infrared heat therapy room, the sauna you purchase should have a noticeably positive impact on the quality of your sleep as well as on your physical and mental well-being.     Global studies on Far Infrared Sauna Benefits by Pertti Olavi JalasjaaThe citizens of Finland aren’t the only folks who know about the terrific benefits of sauna therapy. Chuwa Tei, professor of medicine and chair of the department of internal medicine at Japan’s Kagoshima University, and his colleagues have demonstrated saunas’ usefulness in treating heart patients. In one study, Tei and his colleagues compared 25 men with at least one risk factor for heart disease, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or smoking, with a group of 10 healthy men.


Each study participant spent 15 minutes in a 140-degree Fahrenheit (60-degree Celsius) dry sauna, followed by 30 minutes in a bed covered with blankets, once a day for two weeks.
Both groups were followed for 18 months and closely monitored for any occurrence of ear infections, colds, or upper respiratory problems. Countless studies concur that you can feel better and heal better in the soothing warmth of a sauna.    Seasonal Affective Disorder, Light Therapy and Far Infrared Saunas by Pertti Olavi JalasjaaSpend a winter in Finland, and you’ll likely gain a profound appreciation for daylight. Each year, 14 percent of northern populations reportedly experience the “winter blues,” and another six percent suffer from the more serious Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a type of clinical depression that, by definition, afflicts people only at certain times of the year. For others, it is a mild but debilitating condition that causes discomfort but not severe suffering.
This milder form of SAD, called Subsyndromal Seasonal Affective Disorder, is what most people perceive to be the aforementioned winter blues. Yet another form of SAD is Reverse Seasonal Affective Disorder (RSAD), and it typically strikes during the late spring or early summer and lasts throughout the warmer months.
Also known as summer depression, RSAD is characterized by decreased sleep, weight loss, poor appetite, and other symptoms.
Because treatment options can differ for SAD and RSAD, it’s important to note that the information in the following paragraphs pertains specifically to SAD – in other words, winter depression. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, treatments for Seasonal Affective Disorder include monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOs), psychotherapy, and light therapy.
Certain sources claim that, in addition to being used to treat SAD, insomnia and jet lag, light therapy can also be beneficial for people suffering from skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and vitiglio. For treating Seasonal Affective Disorder, the most commonly used phototherapy equipment is a portable lighting device known as a light box. The patient sits in front of the box for a prescribed period of time that can be as brief as 15 minutes or as long as several hours. As one might surmise, light therapy sessions for SAD typically begin in the autumn months and continue throughout the winter, sometimes even into the early spring. The light box may be mounted upright to a wall or slanted downwards and set on a table.
As for the brightness of the light utilized, the light sources in these light boxes typically range from 2,500 to 10,000 lux (units of illumination). In comparison, average indoor lighting typically ranges from 300 to 500 lux, and a sunny summer day is roughly 100,000 lux. Before undergoing any light therapy treatments for Seasonal Affective Disorder, be sure to discuss your concerns and options with a qualified health professional. If you believe that you suffer from SAD, it is vital that you receive a proper diagnosis from a physician experienced in treating mood disorders. As well, certain risks (like potential eye strain, hypomania and headache, among others) are associated with phototherapy, especially for people who are photosensitive, so consulting with your doctor and an ophthalmologist could prevent additional problems from arising during or after your treatments. It is a logical development since far infrared sauna therapy has repeatedly been proven to be an effective form of light therapy. Little did the early sauna bathers of Finland realize centuries ago that their beloved heat baths might someday become a source of hope and healing, not just for the people of their own country but for everyone who finds the dark days of winter hard to weather. Sweat and Far Infrared Saunas- Here's the Skinnyby Pertti Olavi Jalasjaa For whatever reason, most people feel uncomfortable talking about perspiration.
For example, it’s not unusual to hear someone remark that he or she “sweated” over an academic assignment, “worked up a sweat” on the tennis courts, or “lost a pint of sweat” while awaiting an important decision.
After all, to do so, polite society decrees, would be in poor taste. And yet much could be gained if people felt free to discuss the natural biological process of perspiration without fear of judgment or reproach. Dead skin cells are also effectively flushed away by a good sweat in a far infrared sauna. Increased blood flow and decreased toxins and foreign material in our skin mean more natural nutrients and fewer reasons for irritations and disease.
If you live a mostly sedentary lifestyle and therefore don’t perspire much on a regular basis, you must take action for the sake of the health of your heart, lungs, skin and other vital organs. Countless experts agree that it’s your best setting for healthy sweating.  Sweat out Stress in a Sauna by Pertti Olavi JalasjaaJust like everybody knows how it feels to be happy or sad, everybody knows how it feels to be stressed. Chronic exposure to cortisol causes the mental haziness, forgetfulness and confusion that is associated with aging.” People under stress may also be at higher risk of developing coronary heart disease. As well, people who regularly experience sudden increases in blood pressure caused by stress may, over time, develop injuries in the inner lining of their blood vessels. Studies suggest that chronic stress may increase a person’s chances for developing infections, having strokes, experiencing flare ups of multiple sclerosis, and suffering gastrointestinal problems like peptic ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, and inflammatory bowel disease. And ask anybody who has ever suffered from headaches, insomnia, skin disorders or sexual dysfunction if they believe that stress was at least partly to blame for their woes, and then construct your own conclusions about how damaging stress can be to one’s health and well being. If you think you have a serious condition that has been caused or made worse by certain stressors in your life, you should discuss your concerns with a qualified physician. In their quests for greater relaxation, some people choose biofeedback while others opt for massage therapy. Sauna bathing can also increase blood circulation, relaxing tight, tired or aching muscles by providing them with more oxygen. If you’re searching for a healthy way to alleviate the stress in your life, consider purchasing a home sauna. Seemingly ubiquitous advertisements and TV commercials for antiperspirants continue to convince generations of consumers that perspiration is an undesirable, offensive bodily function.
While no one would dispute that sweat can be quite unwelcome in important social and business situations, it would be imprudent not to acknowledge the necessity of perspiration and understand the critical role it plays in human health. Sweating is an essential function of the human body, as essential as eating, breathing and sleeping. Skin is sometimes called “the third kidney” for this very reason. Your body eliminates various toxins through a variety of metabolic processes, one being urination and another being perspiration. The two types of sauna operate differently, but, at their respective temperature ranges, working up a sufficient sweat in either type should be achievable for even the most inexperienced sauna bather. Using high heat to induce perspiration has a great number of benefits.
By improving blood circulation, regular sauna bathing can help draw the skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface, leading to better tone, texture and elasticity. That’s why sauna bathing is being increasingly included in high-intensity treatment programs for skin ailments like acne, eczema and psoriasis. As well, be sure to discuss your plans and expectations with your personal physician before you take to the sauna for the first time, as he or she should know of any existing conditions or limitations that pertain specifically to your health and might impact your sauna use. As for all those advertisements and TV commercials that say sweating is bad, forget about them, and start doing what you know is best for your health.
