Is a Far Infrared Sauna good for weight loss and burning calories?

There is the obvious weight loss that is associated with burning calories. Most importantly, however, is the weight loss that occurs in those users with chemical toxicities. These are the people who have tried many diets with little or no results. Toxic chemicals are stored in the fat cells and the body will not let go of the fat unless the toxins are removed from the cells. The body very cleverly binds up these toxins in the fat to preserve other organs. Once the toxins are removed, the weight gain associated with high acidity/mal-absorption is also solved.


As you relax in the gentle heat of the infrared sauna, your body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood – and burning calories. In a single sauna session you may burn as many as 600 calories, similar to exercising for 30 minutes.

Will an infrared sauna boost my immune system?

Combat the effects of daily stress and wake up your immune system. Deep radiant infrared heat results in a rising of your body’s temperature, identical to the body’s defence mechanism against bacteria, microbes, and infection. The beneficial side effect of this induced temperature increase is immune system improvement resulting from increased production of white blood cells (leukocytes) by your bone marrow and killer T-cells by your thymus. When toxins are present in our body blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. The body’s immune system is inhibited, which makes it difficult for the body to fight disease.


Combined with the elimination of toxins and wastes from your body, your overall health and resistance to disease is noticeably improved so you feel and look better.

Is a Far Infrared Sauna good for detox?

Scientific studies have shown that a thirty minute session in an infrared sauna can result in the loss of toxins and stored fats in the body by up to six times the level a traditional sauna or exercise alone can achieve. Infrared is the only heat that penetrates deep enough into the tissues of the body to melt away cellulite and fats and the unique light wavelengths act to break down dangerous toxins and acids in the body. Compared to a session in a traditional sauna, you can perspire up to three times more, resulting in these fragmented impurities being safely eliminated by the body through perspiration. An added health benefit of using an infrared sauna is weight loss. Your body will use up to 600 calories in just 30 comfortable and relaxing minutes.

What are the health benefits of infrared saunas?

“The Far Infrared sauna is the safest, most efficient and economical way of eliminating stored toxins, making it a household necessity. I am convinced that the Far Infrared sauna is something that everyone should incorporate into their lifestyle to restore health. The Far Infrared sauna is far safer and more tolerable than a conventional sauna because it uses a heat energy that penetrates into tissues, triggering mobilization of chemicals from fat storage, directly into the sweat.”
(Sherry A. Rogers, M.D. Centre for Environmental Medicine)


It has become well known that people who take regular saunas (2-3 per week) reduce their incidence of colds and influenza by over 65% (a study by the British Medical Association).


While many people use saunas primarily for relaxation and stress reduction, the other health benefits are increasing the popularity of saunas. The reduction and removal of body toxins through the sweating process is becoming a highly regarded benefit of the sauna.


Hundreds of years ago, people discovered and turned to heat therapy as a source of natural healing for many illnesses and discomforts. Far Infrared saunas are growing in popularity and are naturally rising to the top of health regime requirements.
