Will Far infrared sauna cure Gout Pain?
What is Gout?
Gout is a systemic disease caused by the build-up of uric acid in the joints, causing inflammation, swelling, and pain. This condition can develop for two reasons. The liver may produce more uric acid than the body can excrete in the urine, or a diet of rich foods (e.g., red meat, cream sauces, red wine) puts more uric acid into the bloodstream than the kidneys can filter. In both cases, a condition called hyperuricemia results. Over time, the uric acid crystallizes and settles in the joint spaces, most commonly in the first metatarsal phalangeal joint of the big toe or in the ankle joint.
Signs and Symptoms:
Tenderness in the joint of the first toe.
Touching or moving the joint is intensely painful.
Patients often say it hurts to have as much as a bed sheet over the toe.
Gout develops quickly
Typically occurs in only one joint at a time.
May develop in two or three joints simultaneously, but this is rare.
If widespread symptoms occur, the condition is probably not gout.
The most reliable way to diagnose gout is to examine the joint fluid for uric acid crystals. This is done by drawing fluid from the joint with a needle and examining it under a polarized light microscope. Although the test is invasive, the results are definitive, and a positive result facilitates proper treatment and quick relief.
Treatment for gout involves decreasing the amount of uric acid in the joint. If dietary habits are the cause, the patient`s lifestyle must be changed to avoid the condition. We recommend using the safe far infrared natural healing method. For long term results we suggest monitoring your dietary habits and using Far Infrared Socks and clothing.
Alcohol and rich foods are primary contributors to excessive uric acid levels. Although some patients have a genetic predisposition to excessive uric acid production, most gout patients have normal kidneys and uncontrolled dietary habits. Prevention is the best defense against the disease.
Many patients who suffer from gout continue to indulge, and suffer frequent painful attacks as a result. The continued accumulation of uric acid in the joints eventually damages them, seriously inhibiting movement. Although traditional medication makes it possible to live with gout, the Far infrared sauna will actually help to break down the Uric Acid Crystals and reduce the acidity levels in the blood.
FAR infrared Sauna Could Reduce Uric Acid Levels
Special FAR infrared Saunas Could Reduce Uric Acid!
Far Infrared Rays emitted from the far infrared sauna helps to break down the Uric acid crystals. This will reduce the pain and swelling and help to reduce the acidity in the cells.
FAR infrared Sauna during the morning or night time, you can feel confident that micro circulation is improving, toxins are being flushed, fresh nutrients and oxygen are reaching the cellular level, and bacteria growth is inhibited.
Complications of Gout?
Where high uric acid has been present for a long time and acute gout has been frequent and severe, deposits of uric acid salts may appear around the affected joint and even in tissues elsewhere such as the ears. These are seen as chalk colored nodules called tophi. Their presence indicates the need for treatment with one or other of the long term uric acid lowering drugs.
High uric acid levels and recurrent gout are often associated with high blood pressure which your doctor will check and treat as necessary. This combination of hyperuricaemia and high blood pressure can lead to kidney damage so it is all the more important, not just because of the effects on the joints, to correct this state of affairs through the proper use of all the measures mentioned above under your doctor`s supervision.
Who Gets Gout ?
Men aged 40 to 50 are most commonly affected though women have been diagnosed too.
Gout is common in those with obesity, hypertension, hyper lipidemia and diabetes.
Far infrared saunas have proven to help and reduce the chemotherapy process of cancer patients

Excerpts from international reports and published accounts of the health benefits attributed to Infrared Rays.
During the past 25 years researchers and clinicians in Japan and China have carried out extensive research of IR ray treatments and some findings may be seen as provocative. In Japan the â€˜Infrared Society` among whose members are medical doctors and physiotherapists, was established to further research and to support the health benefits obtained from IR treatment as a healing method.
Over 700.000 IR thermal systems has been sold in Asia for â€˜whole-body` treatments, and a further estimated 30 million people have received localized IR treatment in Europe, Australia and New Zealand using lamps tuned to the same waveband as employed in the ?whole-body? thermal system such as the unique portable FIR Sauna.
About weight control:[From Dr. Arthur C. Guyton`s textbook of Medical Physiology] â€˜To produce 1 gram of perspiration requires 0.568kcal.` [From the Journal of American Medical Association: JAMA]: â€˜A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grammes in a sauna, consuming nearly 300kcal., which is equivalent to running 2 to 3 miles. While the weight of the water loss can be regained by drinking water, the calories consumed will not be.`
Since an IR sauna helps to generate 2 to 3 times the perspiration produced in a hot-air/steam sauna, the implications for increased caloric consumption are quite impressive. Assuming â€˜a sauna` as mentioned in the JAMA to last for 30 minutes, then some interesting comparisons may be drawn.
Two of the highest calorie consuming forms of exercises are Rowing and Marathon running. The Peak output on a rowing machine or during marathon runs burn about 600 calories in 30 minutes. The FIR Sauna may enhance the loss by burning about 900 to 2400 calories in a 30-minute session (in other words up to as much as 250% more). Or consume energy equal to that expended in 6 to 9 mile run.
For those who do not exercise or who cannot exercise this is a very valuable and effective way to achieve weight control, or maintain a fitness programme and the benefits of a regular exercise.
This may also apply to the elderly, or those who are otherwise unable to exert themselves to achieve a cardiovascular training effect.
Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a sauna 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. – Journal of the American Medical Association 8/7/81.
Owing to the deep penetration, between 4 ~ 5 cm into the skin, of the infrared rays generated by the Infrared Thermal System, there is a heating effect deep in the muscular tissues and the internal organs. This beneficial heart stress leads to a sought-after cardiovascular training and conditioning effect. Medical researches confirm the use of a sauna provides cardiovascular conditioning as the body works to cool itself and involves substantial increases in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. As a confirmation of the validity of this form of cardiovascular conditioning, extensive research by NASA in the early 1980`s led to the conclusion that infrared stimulation of cardiovascular function would be the ideal way to maintain cardiovascular conditioning in American astronauts during long space flights.
In the 1980s it was the decade of aerobics classes and high-mileage training. Such strictures insured that most â€˜real` exercisers were youths and in good shape to begin with. Many Americans got caught up in the fitness boom, but probably just as many fell by the wayside. As we`ve reported, recent research shows that you don`t have to run marathons to become fit – that burning just 1,000 calories a week is enough. Anything goes, as long as it burns these calories. – Wellness Letter, 10/90, University of California, Berkeley.
It should be mentioned here that as our bodies are made of cells of which the water in it is most important. FIR vibrating at a frequency mentioned before is able to activate the cells. This in turn regulates the blood flow and blood vessels which may have been blocked due to cells being trapped by plasma blood proteins – (trapped plasma blood proteins explained in the Medical Textbook on Physiology by Dr. Arthur C Guyton).
About therapeutic effects: According to Professor Zhang Jian Dong the human body and bodies of animals as well soil and minerals are able to give off FIR rays under specific conditions. A knowledge known to many Chinese Qi-Gong masters who use their own body emissions of FIR rays to ease ailments of others.
The intensity of emission vary with health so that the human body become less able to defend against attacks by ailments and diseases as health status declines, and may accelerate as one`s state of health is reduced. When we reach a terminal condition (death) the FIR radiation will also be close to zero.
For that reason the human body needs a continuous supply of FIR radiation from Mother Nature to boost the powers of FIR rays in our bodies. Sunlight exposure makes us feel healthier owing to the Natural Energy contained in the segment of the spectrum that is Far Infrared rays.
It is important to note that FIR in the FAR Infrared segment [6-14 microns] is the right wavelength needed by the human body to activate various biological functions without any harmful effects. To the contrary these rays strengthen the body and help prevent disease. Another effect is the therapeutic effect on the body, increasing the body`s resistance and rendering it capable of assisting in the treatment of various ailments thus reducing suffering and accelerating recuperation.
Doctors in various hospitals use FIR as a form of physiotherapy and FIR is a therapy based on maintaining good health.
To be a bit more specific the generally accepted therapeutics effects resulting from the heat of the FIR rays include:
1. Increases in the extensibility of collagen tissues.
Tissues heated to 45°C and then stretched exhibit a non-elastic residual elongation of about 0.5 to 0.9% that persists after the stretch is removed. It does not occur in these same tissues when stretched at normal tissue temperatures. Thus 20 stretching sessions can produce around a 10 to 18% increase in length in tissues heated and stretched. This effect would be especially valuable in working with ligaments, joint capsules, tendons and fascia.
The cited experiment clearly shows that low-impact stretching can produce a significant residual elongation when heat is applied together with stretching or range-of-motion exercises, which is also safer than stretching tissues at normal tissue temperatures.
This safer stretching effect is crucial in properly training competitive athletes so as to minimize their down- time from injuries.
2. A decreases of joint stiffness directly.
There was a 20% decrease in stiffness at 45°C as compared with 33°C in rheumatoid finger joints, which correlated perfectly to both subjective and objective observation of stiffness.
Any stiffened joint and thickened connective tissues should respond in a similar fashion.
3. Relief of muscle spasms.
Muscle spasms have long been observed to be reduced through the use of heat, be they secondary to underlying skeletal, joint, or neuro-pathological conditions.
This result is possibly produced by the combined effect of heat on both primary and secondary afferent from spindle cells and from its effects on Gogli tendon organs. The effects produced by each of these mechanisms demonstrated their peak effect within the therapeutic temperature range obtainable with radiant heat.
4. Pain relief.
Pain may be relieved via the reduction of attendant or secondary muscle spasms. Pain is also at times related to tension or spasm, which can be improved by the hyperaemia that heat-induced vasodilatation produces. Heat has been shown to reduce pain sensation by direct action on both free-nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves. In one dental study, repeated heat applications eventually led to abolishment of the whole nerve response responsible for pain arising from dental pulp.
5. Increase of blood flow.
Heating of one area of the body produces reflex-modulated vasodilatation in distant-body areas, even in the absence of a change in core body temperature; i.e. heat one extremity and the contra lateral extremity also dilates; heat a forearm and both lower extremities dilate; heat the front of the trunk and the hand dilates. Heating of muscles produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during an exercise.
Temperature elevation produces an increase in blood flow and dilation directly in capillaries, arterioles, and venous, probably through direct action on their smooth muscles.
6. Assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, oedema and exudes.
The increased peripheral circulation provides the transportation needed to help evacuate the oedema, which can help stop inflammation, decrease pain and help speed healing.
7. More recently, it has been used in cancer therapy.
This is a new and experimental procedure. It shows great promise in some cases, when used properly.
American researchers favour careful monitoring of the tumour temperature; whereas the successes reported in Japan make no mention of such precaution.
Cancer Pain: relieved pain in later stages of cancer extremely well.
8. Burns relief.
Relieves pain and decreases healing time, with less scarring.
9. High Blood Pressure
Reported safe in 40 to 50?C range and regular use helps to lower hypertension. A Case of a diabetic is reported with a systolic decrease from 180 to 125, and a concurrent 10 lbs. weight loss after infrared treatment.
10. Low Blood Pressure
Regular FIR Sauna use assists the body to raise blood pressure to normal levels.
11. Short-term memory
Use is reported to improve short-term memory retention.
12. Cerebral Haemorrhages
Recovery appears to be both sped up and significantly enhanced.
13. Auto Accident: related soft tissue injury
Daily sessions with FIR treatment were used until best healing was attained; then Infrared systems were used to deal with permanent residuals. The pain control effect on the chronic residuals from such injuries lasted three days before another treatment was necessary.
Infrared healing is now becoming the leading edge in the care of soft tissue injuries to promote both relief in chronic or intractable permanent cases, and accelerated healing in newer injuries.
14. Arthritis, acute and chronic
Both are reported to be greatly relieved.
15. Gouty Arthritis:
Similar relief reported.
16. Rheumatoid Arthritis:
FIR treatment successfully relieved discomfort.
A Swedish case study reports on the case of a 70-year-old man with Rheumatoid Arthritis secondary to acute rheumatic fever. He had reached his toxic limit on Gold injections and his Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate was still at 125. Within 5 months of undergoing an infrared treatment, his ESR was down to only 11.
In another case of rheumatic arthritis, that of a 14-year old Swedish girl who couldn`t walk comfortably downstairs due to knee pain since an eight year old, her Rheumatologist told her mother that her child would be in a wheelchair within 2 years if she refused gold corticosteroid therapy. However, after 3 infrared sauna treatments, she became more agile, and subsequently took up folk dancing, without the aid of the conventional approach in her recovery.
A clinical trial in Japan reported the successful solution in seven out of seven cases of Rheumatoid Arthritis treated with whole-body infrared therapy. These case studies and clinical trials indicate that further study is warranted on the usage of whole-body infrared therapy in the care of patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
17. Menopause Symptoms
Treatment relieved chills, nervousness, depression, dizziness, head and stomach aches.
18. Weight Loss
As previously discussed the initial loss occurred through perspiration and the energy use needed to produce the perspiration. Secondly, weight reduction occurred through direct excretion of fat.
19. Radiation Sickness
Relieved signs and symptoms.
All of the following ailments may be associated to some degree with poor circulation and, thus, may respond well to the increased peripheral dilation associated with Infrared application: Arthritis, Sciatica, Backaches, Haemorrhoids, Nervous Tension, Diabetes, Varicose Veins, Children`s Over-tired Muscles, Neuritis, Rheumatism, Strained Muscles, Upset Stomachs, Fatigue, Stretch Marks, Menstrual Cramps and Ulcers [failed to heal using conventional approaches].
Post-Operative Oedema: treatment with infrared has been so successful that hospital stays were reported to have been reduced by 25%.
From Japan researchers report success with infrared treatments:
â€˜Medical practitioners make use of Infrared Radiant Heat to treat sprains, strains, bursitis, peripheral vascular diseases, arthritis and muscle painâ€¦` – McGraw/Hill Encyclopaedia of Science and Technology, Dr. Masao Nakamura of the O & P.
A Medical Clinic in Japan has reported great success with the use of infrared treatment for Whiplash, Sciatica, Menopause, Arthritis, Shoulder Stiffness, Rheumatism, Acne, Gastro enteric Problem, Ear Diseases and Insomnia, Muscle Spasms and Tension, Low Back Pain, trauma and repetitive stress syndromes, Post-exercise Muscle Pain, Gouty, Rheumatoid ailments, and the list goes on.
CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE, ARTERIOSCLEROSIS AND HYPERTENSION
Finnish researchers, talking about the regular use of conventional saunas state that there are abundant evidences to suggest that blood vessels of regular sauna users remain elastic and pliable longer due to the regular dilation and contraction of blood vessels induced by sauna use.
German medical researchers reported in Dermatol Monats schr,? in 1989 that a group of hypertension patients was studied under the identical conditions of infrared-induced hypothermia, with an eye toward more carefully evaluating the circulatory system effects induced by this type of whole-body heating. During each infrared session, there was a significant decrease of blood pressure, cardiac ejection resistance, and total peripheral resistance in every subject.
There was also a significant increase during each session of the subjects` heart rates, stroke volumes, cardiac outputs and ejection fractions. The researchers cite these last three effects as evidences that the stimulation of the heart during infrared-induced hypothermia is well compensated, while the prior list of effects clearly show the micro-circulatory changes that lead to the desired result of a lowering of blood pressure.
Problems often accompanying Ageing have been reported to be reduced by Infrared Therapy in Japan including Menopause and Cold hands and feet. A physiotherapist reported 20 to 50% improvement was maintained.
1. Rheumatoid Arthritis
7 out of 7 cases successfully resolved in one clinical trial.
2. Sequelae of Strokes
Hemiparaesis relieved over time.
3. Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy
4. Duodenal Ulcers
Prevented sleep and/or limited useable sleeping positions: Were relieved.
6. Compression Fracture Pain
Pain gone for 3 days after each treatment in steoporotic compression fractures.
9.Cirrhoses of Liver
12. Asthma & Bronchitis
Cleared up (like moving to Arizona`s dry air)
13. Chron`s Disease
14. Post Surgical Adhesions
15. Leg ulcers
Healed when previously static and resistant to other care.
Significantly softened and, in some cases, completely gone.
EAR, NOSE AND THROAT
Conditions relieved with Infrared treatments in Japan:
Chronic middle-ear inflammation or infection.
Sore throats: chronic severe case cleared with 10 Infrared treatments.
Conditions benefited by Infrared treatments in Japan and China:
1. Nettle rash
Clogged pores are unplugged of cosmetics creating a skin texture and tone of unexcelled quality.
2. Michael Aaland`s book: â€˜Sweat` (Capra Press, 1978) quotes a Finnish doctor to the effect that: â€˜As a result of the sauna, the skin of any Finnish worker is supple and healthy. Poor skin tone is restored to a more youthful level. Scars and pain from burns or wounds are decreased in severity and extent.`
Infrared therapy is also used routinely in burn units throughout Asia.
Heal quicker and with less pain and scarring.
Three or four infrared treatments may open pores that have not been functioning in years, forcing out clogging cosmetics and loosening dead outer skin. The sauna is thus a boon to teenage skin, clearing acne and blackheads.
5. Body odour
By improving the function of the skin, the infrared treatments may eliminate the cause of offensive body odour. It definitely reduces body adder induced by occupational exposure to odorous chemicals.
6. Eczema and Psoriasis
Reported to have responded extremely well to infrared treatments
According to the 9th edition of Clayton`s Electrotherapy: infrared is the only antidote to excessive ultraviolet radiation.
PROSTATE GLAND SWELLING
It is common for men to suffer from a swollen Prostate Gland, especially in men in their forties and above. It has become an inconvenience to them and common symptoms include weakness and difficulty in the excretion of urine, nutria and in serious cases, inability to urinate. At the same time, it may lead to a decline in sexual functions.
Those who suffer from inflammation or swelling of the Prostate Gland may also suffer from cancer of the Prostate Gland, one of the common killers of men.
The prostate gland is the organ responsible for the production of male hormones and sperm and is very important to men. When the swollen Prostate Gland presses against the urethra, various symptoms of difficulty in urination will occur.
The use of FIR can provide therapeutic effects.
As may be noted the segment of the infrared spectrum emitted by the Infrared Thermal System is reputed to offer an astounding range of possible therapeutic benefits and effects in research conducted around the world. The data presented is offered for reference purposes only and to stimulate further observation. Infrared Thermal Systems creating a cure for, or treating of, any disease is neither implied nor should be inferred.
If you are suffering from a disease be certain to consult with a primary-care physician concerning it.
If you are using any prescription drugs check with your physician or pharmacist for any possible change in the drug`s effect likely to result from any interaction with infrared energy.
If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed infections, be they dental, in joints, or in any other tissues.
Far infrared Sauna Vs Conventional
Far infrared Portable saunas are becoming more and more popular in South Africa. Should you want more information call 021 5567203 or click more information
Far Infrared Sauna
Simply plugs into a 13amp mains socket
Needs to be wired up with 180 degree heat resistant cabling for the lights and stove.
Heated to a range of 110° to 130°F. Leaving the air comfortable to breathe.
Heated to a range of 180° to 235°F. The air can become uncomfortable to breathe.
Warm up period of 10 to 15 minutes. Means a far infrared sauna can be used whenever you like and the cost of heating up is much less than a conventional sauna.
Warm up period of between 30 and 90 minutes. Means that you have to plan when to use the sauna. Costly initial warm-up
Approx 20% of the far infrared energy heats the air the remainder heats the person. Means a much lower running cost than a conventional sauna.
Heats the air first and the air heats the person. So not as effective at heating the person. Higher running cost than the far infrared sauna.
You produce 2-3 times the volume of sweat of a conventional sauna. Means better detoxification as more toxins can be driven out through the extra volume.
½ to 1/3 volume of sweat of a far infrared sauna.
No water is needed to create steam or to cool you down. So Less likelihood of mould growing in your house due to the sauna humidity.
Steam and water vapour in the air bring increased risk of mould growth. Mould creates its own toxins.
Heat goes deeper which gives a beneficial cardiovascular workout as well as providing detoxification.
Heat is on the surface of the skin – no cardiovascular workout
You Can Benefit From Using an Infrared Sauna Too
Far infrared saunas can even be used by heart patients. Obviously having checked with their doctors first!
It`s because the high air temperatures of a conventional sauna is likely to be uncomfortable for heart patients. The lower temperatures in a far infrared sauna make it a much more pleasant experience.
The Japanese are keen users of far infrared saunas and they have done vast amounts of research to check its safety and its use in promoting health and healing.
Far Infrared Studies (Clinical Research Cases)
In the first clinical study by the First Department of Internal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Kagoshima University , Kagoshima , Japan Nanpuh Hospital, Kagoshima , Japan reported that repeated 60°C sauna treatment improves clinical symptoms in patients with chronic heart failure.
A further clinical study reported in Journal of the American College of Cardiology (2002; 39:754-759) concluded that repeated far infrared sauna treatment improves vascular endothelial function, resulting in an improvement in cardiac function and clinical symptoms.

Boosts metabolism and improves the immune system!
Medical research demonstrates that exposure to infrared heat can produce excellent therapeutic effects. The deep penetrating heat induces an artificial fever, and as the body naturally counters the fever your immune system is strengthened. The improved immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth. Additionally, it boosts metabolism and overall health. As a result, the body’s resistance to disease significantly increases.
Recent studies also show that colds and flu-like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with infrared heat therapy.
Burns calories, controls weight, & reduces cellulite!
As you relax in the gentle heat of our quality sauna, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, in a single sauna session you may burn as many calories as you would when swimming or jogging for 60 minutes.
Far infrared heat penetrates below the skin and help breaks down the fat and water particles trapped in pockets beneath the skin. This helps to rid your body of unwanted fat and cellulite. So you are not only losing water but also losing weight!
Reduces stress & fatigue!
Perhaps the most immediate relief our far infrared sauna offers is simple relaxation, as it melts away the stresses and anxiety of modern life.
Just a few minutes in the gentle warmth of our infrared sauna gives you an overall comforting effect, soothing strained nerves and knotted muscles. You’ll feel revitalized and refreshed in both body and mind.

In detail here are the facts about far infrared sauna’s. www.saunatech.co.za
Pain Relief – A major health benefit of infrared sauna is in the area of reduction of pain in muscles and joints. Hyperthermia or heat therapy helps to reduce pain, inflammation and edema by acting on nerve endings as well as encouraging production of endorphins, which act as natural analgesics. Stimulating the dilation of peripheral blood vessels, brings relief to muscles and speeds the healing of soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen rich blood to depleted muscles to speed up the body’s natural recovery process. Infrared therapy has been successfully used to reduce pain from a variety of conditions including whiplash, arthritis, bursitis, sciatica, back pain, neuritis, menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia, migraines, gout and chronic muscle spasms. “Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated.” -USA Clinical Study. “Whole body far infrared heat relieved pain from burns and decreased healing time with less scarring.” -Japanese Clinical Study.
Strengthens Cardiovascular System – As the body increases sweat production to cool itself, the heart pumps blood at a greater rate boosting circulation. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while blood pressure drops for improved cardiovascular fitness. If your blood pressure is already low, you will find through using the FIR sauna on a regular basis that it has a regulating effect on the blood pressure. The Mayo Clinic heart studies of end congestive heart failure patients showed improvement within three weeks. A study was published in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology, 2001, to determine whether infrared sauna therapy improves blood vessel function in patients with risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and smoking. Patients were treated in a FIR sauna for 15 minutes, once a day, for 2 weeks. Results: significantly lowered blood pressure, weight loss, lowered blood sugar, significantly increased blood flow, lowered cholesterol and lowered triglycerides.This suggests a preventive role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.
Weight Loss and Cellulite
In a 30 minute session, it is possible to burn from 600 to 2000 calories depending on your size and muscle mass. Toxins stored in fat are decreased making it easier for weight loss. While the weight of water loss can be regained by rehydraton, the calories consumed will not be. Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and wastes which are trapped in pockets below the skin. The intense sweating in regular FIR sessions helps clear this form of unwanted debris. The sauna is a great way for people that don’t like to, or are not able to exercise, to lose weight and have a passive cardio. “Far infrared therapy created weight loss through sweating, the energy expended to produce sweating and through direct excretion of fat.” -Japanese Clinical Study
Profuse sweating achieved carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells leaving the skin immaculately clean. Increased circulation draws the skin’s own natural oils and nutrients to the surface. This results in improved texture, skin tone and elasticity. Regular FIR sauna users are said to have more youthful skin that “glows.” People with chronic skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea will benefit from regular sessions. Fully formed scars, even keloids, can be gradually softened. Burns and other wounds or incisions may heal with significantly reduced scarring.
Reduces Stress and Fatigue
Perhaps the most immediate relief FIR offers is simple relaxation, as it melts away the stresses and tensions of urban life. Due to the many physiological effects of heat therapy, people feel less stressed and report being able to sleep better after their sauna sessions. A sauna session relaxes muscles, circulates blood, stimulates the heart and releases endorphins, providing a feeling of invigoration and well being.
“Now we have the proof that it is the steady, silent accumulation of chemicals and toxins over a lifetime that produces most diseases, including cancer. If we get these ubiquitously unavoidable toxic chemicals out of the body, we can reverse and even cure the most hopeless diseases. Since the far infrared sauna is the safest, most efficacious and economical way to depurate stored toxins, this makes it a household necessity.” – Dr. Sherry Rogers, MD, ABEM, ABFP “…in addition, cancer cells do not like hyperthermia (heat) or high oxygen content, both of which are provided by the far infrared sauna, which also boosts the immune system.” – Dr T. Alibhai, ND, BSc Jim Chan, ND has treated about 5,000 cancer patients. He explains that far infrared therapy has the ability to break up the protective rings around harmful molecules in the body so they’re no longer cancer-causing. It also weakens the bonds between toxins and human tissues, so stored toxins can be flushed out of the system faster and in greater quantities through the skin (via sweating), liver and bowels. Cancer cannot survive in an environment of temperatures more than 42C (107.6F). In addition to its detoxifying effects, FIR heat actually helps kill cancer cells, increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy and reduce the side-effects of conventional therapies. At the same time, it boosts the body’s regenerative abilities.
Detoxify Your Body
The effect of detoxification is one of the most interesting and wide-ranging benefits of FIR therapy. The deep penetrating infrared heat causes chemicals such as potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, pesticides, PCB’s, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, ammonia, uric acid, cholesterol and fat-soluble chemicals to be released from the fat cells and tissues into the lymph fluid. Since sweat is made from the lymph fluid, toxins present will exit the body through the sweat. By taking this detoxifying load off your liver and kidneys, even chronically ill people will experience a significant benefit. One study found that the sweat formed in conventional saunas is 97 percent water. In FIR saunas, only 80 percent of the sweat is composed of water, the remaining 20 percent consists of toxins, poisons and waste.

The skin is our largest organ. It works very hard to prevent toxins from penetrating deep into our bodies, filtering out bad chemicals which are deposited in the top layer of the skin for later shedding.
The condition of your skin is an indication of your health. If your skin looks unhealthy, it usually means that your body is also unhealthy.
There are many things that affect the overall health of your skin including the environment we live in, the food we eat, the amount of sleep we get, the amount of stress we live with, the amount of alcohol we drink, and whether or not we smoke.
Pre-mature aging of your skin can also be caused by drugs, prescription medications, sun exposure, and dehydration. Anti aging skin care products that have an alcohol or petroleum base or contain fragrances can also have a detrimental effect on your skin. Older skin has less elasticity and can’t produce elastic proteins like collagen and elastin, the way younger skin does. This results in the formation of wrinkles and adds to the aging effect.
A far infrared sauna is one of the most beneficial tools for improving your skin. The deep penetrating far infrared rays improves blood flow, lowers blood pressure, kills unwanted organisms, opens blocked pores, eliminates dead skin cells, and removes rancid oils and bacteria – all without any pain.
Acne, eczema and psoriasis are signs that your body systems are not in proper balance. Far infrared saunas improve circulation, providing oxygen rich blood to damaged areas to heal and remove toxins. They help restore balance and prevent future breakouts. The result is immaculately clean, glowing skin with improved tone, elasticity, texture and color.
According to the Clayton’s Electrotherapy (9th Edition) far infrared radiation is the only antidote to excessive ultraviolet radiation, healing skin that has been damaged by over exposure to the sun. Using far infrared saunas on a regular basis not only revives your skin, it gives it a healthy, youthful glow.
If you already have damaged skin, it is not too late. Your marvelous body can regenerate itself and given the right encouragement, you can reverse the damage.
