On the path to wellness, you often hear people suggest a detox or cleanse. While sometimes used interchangeably, these processes are not the same. A cleanse usually involves eliminating certain foods from the diet, and reducing the toxic load for a short period of time. A detox, on the other hand, eliminates stored toxins from deep within the body’s tissues and organs. While both can be beneficial, a healthy detox can provide long lasting benefits such as relief from fatigue, chronic pain, stress, and improved circulation and heart health. Taking a cue from the traditions of Swedish saunas and Native American sweat lodges, Thrive Massage and Wellness brings infrared light therapy to Columbus, the most advanced system for profound detoxification.
We are exposed to toxins every day – from the air we breathe, the food we eat, and even through our body’s metabolism process. Left in the body, these toxins can cause chronic illness, imbalance, and general feelings of sickness. Detoxing from heavy metals, pesticides, chemicals and pollution on a regular basis is important for overall health. Infrared light therapy has been proven as a safe and effective method to detox.
Using infrared therapy, the deep penetration of heat releases toxins from the fat layers just beneath the skin through perspiration. It also helps your body eliminate toxins from your internal organs. Once the first round of toxins has been eliminated, toxins from the organs move into that layer of tissue under the skin, and are then eliminated through perspiration.
Researchers have analyzed the sweat produced in both traditional and infrared saunas. Sweat from traditional saunas was about 97% water and 3% toxins. Sweat produced in infrared saunas was 80-85% water. The remainder (15-20% of the perspiration) consisted of toxins such as heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia, uric acid other fat-soluble toxins. http://www.sunlighten.com/blogs/detox-with-a-sunlighten-infrared-sauna/
This healthy detox goes beyond just sweat. The increase in core body temperature from the infrared therapy improves circulation and reduces inflammation allowing the body’s natural systems to move toxins and waste out of the body. As the body is brought back into balance, your natural immune system and general vitality is restored.
