WHAT CAN FIR DO FOR THE BODY?
FIR rays penetrate approximately 1.5" and this light energy transforms to heat energy. This causes blood vessels to dilate, which promotes better blood circulation as the heat rids the body of toxins through sweating. Good circulation of blood and bodily fluids enhances the distribution of oxygen and ingestion of nutrients to every part of the body. Thus the body naturally metabolizes and heals itself which leads to improved vitality. And once the body is strong and healthy, its elevated immune system induces a greater capacity to resist against disease.
COMPARISON STUDIES BETWEEN CONVENTIONAL AND FIR SAUNAS.
Far Infrared waves the body without heating the air in between the source and the object. Therefore FIR saunas are dry, as opposed to the humid heat produced by a conventional sauna. In a study done in the United States the sweat of people in conventional saunas was found to be 95% to 97% water. Sweat of those using a FIR sauna was 80 to 85% water with the non-water portion containing the following: cholesterol, fat soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acids, sodium, ammonia and uric acid- and these toxins have been stagnant in the body's cells for years.
