When you google "are far infrared saunas good for me", it can be confusing. Let’s try and clear that up.
Firstly, infrared saunas are not bad for you! The wavelength of the sun that is emulated by the infrared heat source is the safe part of the sun. It’s easy to get confused with the other wavelengths from the sun, such as UV or Gamma- the nasty ones. Without sunlight, life would cease to exist. Only a small percentage of all sunlight is visible and only 2% of that is infrared- the good stuff. In fact that energy is the same wavelength as what’s emitted by the human body. Infrared heaters are even used to heat premature babies in hospitals incubators.
One of the main reasons far infrared saunas are good for you is that with regular use, you will remove otherwise permanent toxins from the body. The body’s default setting is to be 100% healthy, by reducing toxins and in turn the burden on the immune system. Toxins stored in our bodies affect the way we look and feel. However, it’s not simply a case of removing toxins; we need to remove them without doing more damage.
From the book Detoxify or Die: “Far Infrared saunas pull otherwise permanent toxins out of the body, by causing a molecular dance with molecules of water and xenobiotics stored in surface fat, without dragging chemicals from safe storage into the bloodstream where they could cause exacerbation of symptoms".
There’s a great side-effect of being inwardly healthy, other than feeling fantastic, and that’s the outer glow. Nothing is more beautiful than healthy skin!
