Detox, detox, detox… it has become a buzzword nowadays. There are hundreds of diets, supplements, and teas out there on the market to help remove all of those wretched toxins from your body. We’re here today to report on a different, more relaxing method… Infrared saunas!
Before we jump into what infrared saunas are and why we think they’re so great, let’s first look at why we need to detox our bodies!
What Kind of Toxins are Inside of Us?
Every day we are surrounded by an abundance of toxins. In fact, we recently just touched on toxins that can be found right inside your own kitchen! Read more about that here, Your Kitchen Hides Endocrine Disruptors – Glow Botanica.

How an Infrared Sauna Can Help
If you’ve never heard of an infrared sauna, don’t worry… you aren’t alone! In simple terms, it is a special type of sauna that heats your body through light waves. This heat then warms the body, causing you to sweat. This is amazing for hormonal balance, as the sweating induces your body to detox!
Toxins are usually processed within our liver and as you can imagine after seeing that list above… we’re in contact with several toxin sources on a daily basis. For this reason, the liver may find it super difficult to expel them all, on top of performing its normal human function. So, why not give this busy organ all of the extra help we can!
Infrared saunas are wonderful because they use light waves rather than steam. This means that the humidity is lower, and your body will heat up more at lower temperatures so that you can stay in it for much longer.
We’ve already said that it helps detoxification. But actually, this is not the only benefit that they bring you.
They help wound healing, cellular health, and tissue oxygenation. As well as improving pain relief and weight loss.
