The #1 Drain to Energy & How to Reverse it

stress is the #1 drain to our life energy and actually the #1 root of all disease.

The “stress response” gland is your adrenal gland. This gland relies on micronutrients to produce stress hormones.

Stress depletes the following micronutrients, which are related to specific symptoms:

1. Stress depletes Vitamin C, which is linked to fatigue, joint pain, muscle fatigue and low immunity.

2. Stress depletes Vitamin E, which is linked to hormone imbalances, mood swings, low immunity and eye-sight degradation.

3. Stress depletes Calcium, which is linked to nervous irritability (anxiety), muscle spasms and twitching, bone loss issues (osteoporosis and osteopenia), cavities, depression and hypertension.

4. Stress depletes Magnesium, which is linked to arrhythmias, dizziness, muscle twitching, hyperirritability, tiredness, depression and hypertension.

5. Stress depletes Chromium, which is linked to blood sugar issues, metabolic syndrome, fatigue and brain fog.

6. Stress depletes Zinc, which is linked to low energy, dermatitis, ance, decreased immunity, alopecia, digestive issues, white spots on fingernails, infertility.

7. Stress depletes Glutathione, which is linked to high cholesterol, plaque formation, high blood pressure, rapid aging, immunosuppression, increased inflammation and pain.

The deficiencies of these micronutrients put you at greater risk of developing heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, and neurodegenerative disease (such as Alzheimer’s).

7 Amazing Benefits Of Infrared Sauna Therapy

Sauna therapy in some form or another has been used for centuries for it’s many amazing health benefits. Native Americans conducted sweat lodges for spiritual and physical cleansing and the Egyptians use it to treat tumors. But now more than ever sauna therapy is necessary to experience how good you body and mind are designed to feel because of the toxic world we live in.

Detoxification is unfortunately no longer an optional health strategy if you want to experience incredible health.

Toxins come from the food we eat, air we breathe, water we drink, skin products use and our environments. Toxins are impossible to avoid and they are responsible for upwards to 80% of cancer deaths.

We are exposed to six million pounds of mercury (linked to hypothyroidism, immune systems, digestive problems learning disabilities, autism, ADHD) and more than two billion pounds of other toxins each year – one reason cancer statistics are skyrocketing.  

The Environmental working group reports that the average newborn baby has 287 known toxins in his or her umbilical cord. It’s scary!

1) Detoxification

The first amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is detoxification.  Sweating is one of our bodies most natural and effective ways to eliminate stored toxins.

The skin is a major detox organ, and sweating through skin is a critical human detox function, yet most people don’t sweat enough. Because of this, we miss out on a major source of toxin elimination: the skin.

To combat these effects, an infrared sauna helps to purify the body from the inside out, eliminating metals and toxins that are stored in fat cells, which can be release upon exposure to heat.

Infrared saunas help your body release toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. When compared to traditional Swedish saunas, infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins.

2) Relaxation

The second amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is it promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s stress hormones. The heat generated by the sauna helps to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

Researchers have found that a sauna can help provide a deeper, more relaxed sleep, relief of chronic tension, and relief of chronic fatigue issues, most likely due to a release of endorphins (feel good hormones) from the sauna. As endorphins are released into your body, they create a soothing, tranquilizing effect that can help with relaxation and sleep.

3) Pain Relief

The third amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is pain relief.  If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can help ease muscle and joint pain by increasing circulation and decreasing inflammation.

In The Annals of Clinical Research Volume 20, research results show the benefits of sauna for relief of pain. Pain relief induced by a sauna was attributed to an increase in the release of anti-inflammatory compounds. More than 50% of participants reported relief of pain in the study.

4) Weight Loss

The fourth amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is weight loss. The heat generated by an infrared sauna causes your core body temperature to rise, which leads to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising.

When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body begins to burn more calories, resulting in weight loss.

An article, titled Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories!!

5) Longevity

The fifth amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is increased longevity and heart health. A study found in Journal JAMA Internal Medicine showed that regularly spending time in a sauna may help keep the heart healthy and extend life.

Researchers from Finland tracked 2,300 men for an average of 20 years. They found that the more sessions per week men spent in the sauna, the lower their risk of sudden cardiac death and fatal coronary heart disease.

The sauna also extended the life of participants with other illnesses, including cancer. The study found that fatal cardiovascular disease was 27% lower for men who used the sauna 2 to 3 times a week and 50% lower for men who used the sauna 4 to 7 times a week compared with men who just used the sauna once per week. Moreover, they found that using the sauna 2­-3 times per week was associated with 24% lower all­ cause mortality and 4­-7 times per week 40%.

6) Skin Radiance

The sixth amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is skin radiance. When your body produces sweat via the deep sweating you experience in an infrared sauna, the rate at which dead skin cells are replaced can be increased.

At the same time, heavy sweating helps to remove bacteria out of the epidermal layer of the skin and the sweat ducts. This pore cleansing also causes increased capillary circulation, which can give the skin a softer-looking, younger appearance.

When you sweat, the movement of fluid to the skin delivers mineral-rich nutrients and also helps to fill spaces around the cells, increasing firmness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. So by continually flushing waste through skin cells via the use of sauna therapy, you increase skin health, tone and color, and cleanse the pores.

7) Immune System Boost

The seventh amazing benefit of infrared sauna therapy is it can boost your immune system.The Journal of Human Kinetics investigated the effect of sauna on the immune system, specifically white blood cell profile, cortisol levels and selected physiological indices in athletes and non-athletes.

After the sauna session, an increased number of white blood cells, lymphocyte, neutrophil and basophil counts was reported in the white blood cell profile, showing that sauna use stimulates the immune system.

German medical research also shows that saunas are able to significantly reduce the incidences of colds and influenza and Dr. Nobuhiro Yoshimizu, M.D. author of “The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees” found that just a 2% increase in body temperature results in a 40% increase in immunity.

How Do Infrared Saunas Work?

So you may still be wondering how infrared saunas work…infrared saunas raise our body temperature and put our bodies in a state of hyperthermia. Essentially, they create an artificial fever which has tremendous healing benefits as you now know.

Infrared saunas produce 3 different type of heat waves – near, middle and far infrared heat waves that penetrate into the body and induce sweating. It has been found that near-infrared levels are best for wound healing and increased immune function. Middle-infrared levels are ideal for increasing circulation and promoting muscle relaxation and far-infrared levels are used primarily for detoxification. It’s best to purchase a sauna that has all three.

There are 2 phases of sauna therapy:

Phase 1:

  • Sweating begins and is very light
  • Inhibits the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight – stress response)
  • Improves oxygenation
  • Relaxes the muscles

Phase 2: This is where the magic happens

  • Starts 10-30 minutes into a session
  • Body temperature rises rapidly
  • Blood circulation increases
  • Heart rate and sweating increase
  • Weaker cells die – cancer cells, bacteria, fungi, parasites, cells infected with viruses
  • The immune system is activated
  • Increases alkalinity of the body

As we sit in the infrared sauna, the blood vessels open, muscles relax, pain starts to subside and the body starts to actively heal. Our modern life, with all its demands with technology and sensory input, keeps us in a constant state of “fight or flight.” We were never designed to stay in this place all the time, but rather only for shorter periods to help us get out of bad situations. Chronic “fight or flight” can keep us feeling chronically tired, anxious or sick.

The sauna I recommend…

There are many different sauna companies out there. The company I recommend and I believe is the gold standard is Clearlight Sauna. Clearlight Saunas were designed by a doctor, not simply endorsed by a doctor and are used at the most prestigious holistic healing centers in the world including Hippocrates Institute.

They are the leader in the sauna industry because they are the only company that has True Wave™ full spectrum infrared heaters with the highest output of near infrared, mid infrared and far infrared available, patent pending virtually EMF free infrared heating technology and just as important as eliminating EMF, Clearlight is the only infrared sauna company in the industry that shields against ELF (extremely low frequencies.)

Their saunas are made with 100% eco-certified sustainably harvested Canadian Cedar Wood or North American Basswood and come with a complete limited lifetime warranty on the entire sauna and all its components for the lifetime of the original owner. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes and budgets.
