Why Choose Infrared Saunas?
All life needs energy, and the sun is the primary source of this energy. Infrared rays are just one part of the rays that make up the suns spectrum; they are the rays that actually warm your body when you are out in the sun.
Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation. FIR heat actually penetrates and warms the body, so the heat energy is not lost trying to warm the air. FIR heat is not ultraviolet radiation, but a narrow band of energy within the 5.6 to 15 micron level.
This type of energy travels 1½ – 2” deep into the body, increasing circulation and nourishing damaged tissue. The FIR heat emitted by far-Infrared energy treatment devices, such as, the is a naturally occurring energy that heats objects by direct light conversion (DLC).This natural heat increases body temperature, which in turn stimulates and improves the immune system.
The FIR heat emitted in the sauna may induce two to three times the sweat volume of conventional saunas, and they operate at a much cooler air temperature range. Many individuals who cannot tolerate a conventional sauna, steam room or sweat lodge will find pleasant.
The lower heat range is also safer for those with cardiovascular risk factors or fragile health. The Far-Infrared energy device we recommend uses the same heat therapy technology used in sports medicine to treat athletic injuries. Hospitals use FIR heat to keep newborn infants warm and health professionals have used red infrared heat lamps for decades to treat muscle and joint problems

When you are relaxing in a Good Health Sauna, your body is actually working. This passive cardiovascular conditioning increases heart rate and metabolism, produces sweat, pumps blood and burns calories. Increased metabolism and weight loss. Boost your metabolism and increase weight Loss. Fight obesity, diabetes and heart disease!
Far Infrared heat generated in a sauna penetrates deep into your body (up to 2 inches deep) causing a heating effect deep in your muscles and organs. Your body then reacts by increasing your metabolic rate and raising your pulse as you start to sweat. As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. This profuse sweating helps to increase your basal body temperature, which also increases your metabolism to work. With a higher metabolism, your body converts food into energy at a faster rate. By having a slower metabolism rate the body starts to store the energy in fat tissues, which, if not released through diet and exercise, will remain in the tissue and weight will be gained.
Your weight has nowhere to go but down and that‘s exactly what it will do. At least, that’s what the marketing guys will tell you. I strongly advise you to drink two or three glasses of water for every 15 minutes you are in the sauna. It may be tempting to enjoy the immediate sauna weight loss if you don‘t drink, but this will hurt your body. Make sure you drink enough so you don‘t dehydrate. Drink water. By drinking water you make sure you don‘t replenish the lost calories. Number of calories a 150 pound person normally burns up in 30 minutes of exercise:
Anyone being used to the heat in a sauna could easily burn 600 to 800 calories and you will lose weight much easier than in a traditional sauna because… the idea is that the infrared heat penetrates deeper into your body than the heat in an ordinary sauna. Because human fat starts to liquefy at 110 degrees F, subcutaneous fat can be released along with your sweat. Your pores are cleansed, your skin will become healthier and you get rid of all kinds of toxins that are accumulating in your body fat.
Getting rid of toxins is good. It corrects metabolic imbalances that were causing poor digestion and weight gain. And that brings us to another reason why infrared saunas are often mentioned as an effective weight loss help: Infrared sauna weight loss and detoxification of the body. You see, for many people, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and eating a well-balanced diet are sufficient to start losing weight.
Infrared sauna weight loss is said to be facilitated by the excellent detoxification mechanism that eliminates the dangerous toxins from your body. Sweating allows our bodies to get rid of all sorts of toxins and allows our body to regain its self-healing, natural and balanced state of being. And that is another reason why the infrared sauna is often mentioned as an ideal companion on your pathway to a healthy and more energetic lifestyle. Beyond generating a higher metabolism rate, a Infrared Sauna assists in weight loss in three other significant ways:
• It effectively reduces heavy metals which have been directly related to metabolic imbalances in the body causing poor digestion and weight gain.
• It decreases fat stored (lipophilic) toxins. Often weight loss cannot be accomplished unless these toxins are first removed.
• Although weight loss due to perspiration (water loss) is quickly regained, sending more blood to the capillaries and converting fats and carbohydrates results in as much as 600 calories burned during one short session in a Infrared Sauna.
