A number of environmental toxins saturate every aspect of  our life. These toxins are unavoidable and are absorbed by our bodies. Since humans are bio-accumulators, the large quantities and numerous types of toxins we are exposed to accumulate in our bodies. They overwhelm our bodies’ ability to metabolize and get rid of them naturally. In time, the poison from toxins may result in immune symptom problems, such as chronic pain syndromes, multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer So, how can you best get rid of these harmful toxins? The perfect solution for helping your body get rid of the environmental toxic chemicals (pesticides, heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and hydrocarbon residues),is Body Detoxification through sweating in a Sauna. The heat deeply penetrates tissues triggering mobilization of chemicals from fat storage and directly into sweat and to help your body expel them.

Fat becomes water-soluble at a temperature of 100 F° and enters the bloodstream to be removed from the body. The Sauna will increase the peripheral blood flow and remove fat through sweat. Weight loss is one of the great benefits of using a Sauna every day. A single therapeutic sauna session will burn as much as 300-600 calories

 Another problematic and difficult to get rid of waste is cellulite, a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes that are trapped in pockets below the skin .Profuse sweating helps clear this form of waste from the body. Saunas are a natural and healthy way to remove fat and cellulite from the body without exercising!

3. Cardiovascular Health

The sauna causes deep effect in the muscular tissues and internal organs. Our  bodies respond to this deep heating effect via a hypothalamic-induced increase in heart volume and rate. This heart stress is beneficial as it leads to cardiovascular training and conditioning of the heart. Medical research confirms that for improved overall cardiovascular fitness,  the use of  sauna has many benefits. It provides cardiovascular conditioning when the body works to cool itself after a sauna session.

Your heart is one of the most vital organs of your body…… take good care of it!
