Special-Needs Children Benefit
From Far Infrared Sauna Therapy
Dr. Rachel West is regarded nationally as the “go to Doctor” for special-needs children. She combines many therapies and modalities together with diet and nutrition. Dr, West frequently uses far infrared sauna therapy as part of her healthy child programs because of its overall health-promoting benefits.
We do the same kind of detox for kids as we do for adults.
Special-needs children benefit from having as low levels as possible of chemical toxins.
The nice thing is that far infrared actually penetrates at cellular levels so it will help clean out organ tissues and disconnect cells from toxins that may be blocking pathways and at very low heat, which is safe for children,
Far Infrared sauna heat therapy gets the blood moving through the pathways of elimination including liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, colon and, of course, skin. Our skin is our largest detoxification organ.
One of the nice things is that infrared sauna is so relaxing to kids, all kids. It doesn’t have to be that long to get some kind of effect.
A lot of childrens’ bodies are so toxic they are building up lactic acid, which can cause them to engage in repetitive movement.
The lactic acid makes kids feel like they want a massage, and the saunas feel great on their joints and muscles, and keep in mind it isn’t the heat that counts, but the penetration and the benefits of infrared sauna that can occur at low heat. We see oxygenation of cells and better sleep Since sauna restores and calms the nervous system and heat is nurturing, many parents have their kids take a sauna in preparation for bedtime or before their evening bath or shower.
Many thanks to Healthy Living Magazine and to Dr. West for sharing this information on how many special-needs children benefit from Far Infrared Sauna Therapy.
