New Therapy Helps Sweat Out Toxins

Sauna therapy, which dates back to ancient times and is touted in the healing traditions of many of the world’s great cultures, is one of the most relaxing ways that you can improve your health.

It is the only detoxification treatment that has been proven to release fat-stored toxins from the body. Fat tissues and cells are where much of the body’s toxic overload occurs because in order to protect itself, the body encapsulates toxins in fat, quarantining them from other cells and tissues.

How to Use the Sauna Oxygen Ionizer

Sauna Oxygen Ionizer

We get a lot of questions about the sauna oxygen ionizer and how to use it. The oxygen ionizer main function is to purify the air and kill odor causing bacteria. Inside a sauna, keeping the air fresh is critical because of the heat and perspiration. Without purifying the air inside the sauna after usage, the sauna can get stuffy and smells bad.

The ioinzer (as in the picture below) has two settings; O3 and Ions. O3 generate ozone to kill bacteria and purify the air inside the sauna.

Warm Sauna May Help Treat Heart Failure

In a study of 129 people with heart failure, the treatment, called Waon therapy, cut the risk of hospitalization or dying of heart disease by more than half.

The treatment is a lot cooler than a traditional steam sauna that reaches about 176 degrees Fahrenheit.

Under medical supervision, the patient lies on a bench in a 140 degree Fahrenheit, infrared dry sauna for 15 minutes. Infrared saunas use a special heater that generates infrared radiation similar to that produced by the sun.
