Far Infrared Sauna: The healthy therapy has Dr. Mehmet Oz and Kris Carr buzzing

Unlike a regular sauna, Far Infrared filters out UV radiation and delivers only the safe infrared rays. These rays gently penetrate and warm the body, without heating the sauna space up too much.

People find it much more comfortable, relaxing and remarkably effective.

My patients using the Far Infrared Sauna report amazing results, including everything from better energy to greater clarity of thought and reduced blood pressure. The latter sounds hard to believe, but actually is quite easily explained. Far Infrared releases nitric oxide, a vasodilator, which literally dilates the arteries, allowing for easier blood flow and less pressure.

The same effect cannot be found with traditional sauna, and in fact, it could be dangerous to be exposed to high heat with high blood pressure. We measure blood pressure at the start and end of each sauna session, and It really is amazing to see the blood pressure numbers drop as much as 30 points in a single session!

Even if you don’t like heat, you’ll find far infrared is much easier to tolerate and feels quite nice–similar to that wonderful warmth you feel on the first day of summer.

And that healthy sweat is detoxifying your body. When you get the junk out of your body that’s causing problems in the first place, your body can heal itself. This is the way it’s supposed to work.
