A Medical Doctor and Environmental Specialist Speaks Out on Infrared Sauna Benefits for Health
Excerpts from her latest book
“DETOXIFY OR DIE”
– by DR. SHERRY A. ROGERS, M.D., ABEM
A Canadian friend of mine went to the big PNE (Pacific National Exhibition-like a big state fair) in Vancouver last weekend and found this flyer which he shared with me. It was so interesting, I thought I’d share it with blog readers during this seven day series of blogs on saunas.
” What is the best way to get rid of toxic chemicals including pesticides, heavy metals and hydrocarbon residues when you cannot tolerate a sauna? When a sauna makes you feel weak, sick, have a fast heart rate, faint, dizzy, panicky, headachey or just plain miserable, what is the solution? The far infrared sauna. Thanks to improved technology, the far infrared sauna is far safer and infinitely more tolerable, because it uses a heat energy that penetrates tissues, triggering mobilization of chemicals from subcutaneous fat storage, directly into the sweat. This activating penetration allows for a much lower overall temperature to be used, one that is enjoyable and not torture.
Over weeks and months there is an equilibrium, as chemicals that are stored in other organs slowly and safely disseminate throughout the body and eventually empty into your subcutaneous fat. It is the chemical load that is stored beneath the skin that is the main area activated by the far infrared sauna.
The far infrared sauna causes profuse sweating which will release a lifetime of toxins from the body storage! When you realize the lifelong incapacity and expense of diseases such as chronic pain syndromes, heart disease, chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, Alzheimer’s, cancer or any others caused by chemical toxicity, a sauna is cheap. Let’s face it: high tech pollution requires high tech solutions.
Once you have it, it’s yours to use forever, for the world will never run out of ways to poison us. The whole family can use it. It is not only capable of providing the primary “cure” or solution for your current medical problem, but can free you from symptom producing medications. Since we’re continually being bombarded by new chemicals every day, it is a tool to keep you “cleaned out” for life. It is a win – win situation.
How can we bring aging and illness to a screeching halt? Sweat out the poisons is the answer……..Poisons such as; mercury from dental amalgams, fish and paints; cadmium from auto exhaust, cigarette smoke (including second-hand from others), shellfish, incinerator pollution, and industrial pollution in air, food and water. You cannot escape heavy metals or other environmental pollutants. Also, there are herbicides and pesticides, which are hidden in our air, food and water. No one is protected. We are also all susceptible to hydrocarbons and other environmental pollutants or toxins, from trichloroethylene in city water supplies, solvent extraction fluids used to decaffeinate coffee, toluene in painted rooms, formaldehyde in carpets, and benzene in air fresheners, to good old diesel and other common pollutants in our vehicles.
Far infrared wavelengths have other beneficial properties. They lower lactic acid (the acid that accumulates and causes pain in muscles when you have overdone it during exercising), stimulate endorphins or happy hormones of the brain, and kill organisms like bacteria and parasites. More important, they penetrate tissues, detoxify cells by vibrating ionic bonds, stop swelling, improve lymphatic flow and blood circulation, and attract calcium to cell membranes where it is needed for healing.
Sweating is a God-given mechanism, but it must be done properly and safely to be successful. The far infrared sauna is something that you will use for a lifetime. It is a major tool not only in your detox program but also in your anti-aging program The far infrared sauna technology is the only proven, most efficacious way of getting rid of stored environmental chemicals. This makes it a household necessity.”
