Today I want to stress the significance that dry infrared sauna heat therapy for detoxification can do for you because of the toxic world we live in. Did you know that there are over 100,000 chemicals in our environment today, including toxic heavy metals? Do you think these toxins and chemicals are getting into your body and affecting you in a certain way? If so, how can you get rid of them? These are questions that I will answer in this article, keep reading.

How did our world become so toxic?

It seems as our world has evolved through the industrial revolution that began in the late 1700’s to the digital revolution of today, we are now seeing the correlation between toxic harmful chemicals in the body and the rise in disease.

In fact, according to the National Health Council, 40% of Americans have been diagnosed with a chronic illness and that number is estimated to rise.

The chemicals being used in factories and products to make our world more convenient, modern, and efficient, many of which have not even been tested for safety on humans, coupled with the human’s body lacking in minerals and nutrient deficiencies, is what I believe to be the underlying true cause of disease.
And unless you have a lifelong daily detoxification strategy in place, such as in infrared sauna with its dry therapeutic heat, the odds are you too will be one of the statistics of the high rate of disease and chronic illness that we are seeing in the world today.
Below is an explanation of what sort of chemicals and toxins I am referring to.

There are dozens of Heavy metals in our environment, some of which include: arsenic, lead, mercury, chromium, and cadmium just to name a few.

Heavy metals are defined as metallic elements that have a relatively high density compared to water.

These metals are very toxic and known to induce adverse health effects in the human body, including cardiovascular diseases, developmental abnormalities, neurologic and neurobehavioral disorders, diabetes, hearing loss, hematologic and immunologic disorders, and various types of cancer.

An abstract published in the US National Library of Medicine website states,

Because of their high degree of toxicity, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury rank among the priority metals that are of public health significance. These metallic elements are considered systemic toxicants that are known to induce multiple organ damage, even at lower levels of exposure. They are also classified as human carcinogens (known or probable) according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

As I had mentioned above, there are over 100,000 harmful chemicals that an average person is exposed to on a daily basis. I am not going to discuss them all, this would take a whole book! Today, I am just going to review the main chemicals that may already be familiar to you.
The number one chemical found in the human body is called Phthalates (pronounced “thah-lates”). Phthalates are chemical plasticizers that have been widely used since the 1950s to soften plastics that would otherwise be brittle and crack when bent. Because phthalates are not chemically bound to the plastics they’re added to, they’re continuously released into the air, food or liquid. Did you ever notice how plastic sometimes hardens over time? That’s because the phthalates have leached out of it.
Phthalates are found in an amazing array of products. In personal care items, they’re used to help lubricate other substances, help lotions penetrate and soften the skin, and help fragrances last longer. They’re also used in toys, electronics (such as personal computers), car-care products, insecticides, and many household products, including adhesives, plastic wrap, plastic containers, flooring, furniture, wallpaper, shower curtains, and other things made of vinyl or PVC.

Some phthalates have been shown to have adverse effects on the reproductive system (increase in infertility) and endocrine system (increase in diabetes, obesity and chronic fatigue).

Another “well known” chemical people are being made aware of is called Parabens. Parabens where first commercialized in the 1950s, they are a group of synthetic compounds commonly used as preservatives in a wide range of health, beauty, and personal care products. If the product you are using contains methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben and isobutylparaben, then it has parabens.
Parabens are typically found in personal care products, however, did you know that 90% of your typical grocery items contain measurable amounts of parabens, this is why even those who stay clear of harmful personal care products still show parabens in their bloodstream.
While individual products may contain limited amounts of parabens within safe limits set by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), cumulative exposure to the chemicals from several different products could be overloading our bodies and contributing to a wide range of health problems.

Parabens are known to disrupt hormone function and are linked to breast cancer.

You would have to be living under a rock to not have heard about BPA (bisphenol A), but do you know about BPS (bisphenol S) and BPF (bisphenol F).

Yes, the FDA banned the sale of products containing BPA back in 2012 but what you may not have known was these companies substituted BPA with BPS and BPF.

According to an article titled, “Bisphenol S and F: A Systematic Review and Comparison of the Hormonal Activity of Bisphenol A Substitutes”, found on the Environmental Health Perspectives website concluded:

“Based on the current literature, BPS and BPF are as hormonally active as BPA, and they have endocrine-disrupting effects.”

Another nasty harmful chemical making headway in the news today are Pesticides. A pesticide is a chemical or biological agent that deters, incapacitates, kills, or otherwise discourages pests.

Although pesticides have benefits, some also have drawbacks, such as potential toxicity to humans and other species. Take for instance the lawsuit against Monsanto and how the company has been lying and falsifying studies to line there own pockets.

Fox Business news is just one of the news outlets that covered the story, you can read more here.

We are sure to see more cases going to trial, and we will just need to watch and see what happens.

The last group of chemicals that are showing alarming health effects on the human body are Halogens. The name “halogen” means “salt-producing”.

When halogens react with metals they produce a wide range of salts, including calcium fluoride, sodium chloride (common table salt), silver bromide and potassium iodide.

Fluoride, Chlorine, and Bromine are toxic in themselves but are also highly detrimental because they tend to block your body’s Iodine receptors, and therefore prevent your body from absorbing the Iodine it needs.

So bottom line, halogens block thyroid functions, they compete with iodine to get into your thyroid and cause your thyroid to not work properly. Your thyroid sets your metabolism rate, so when it’s not functioning properly there’s that risk of obesity.

“Recommended Fluoride levels in the US are twice the level at which thyroid function can be affected, and thyroi dysfunction is rampant in the the US, where an estimated 20 million people are affected. Side effects of thyroid dysfunction include weight gain and depression.” Dr. Mercola

Dry Infrared Sauna Heat Therapy For Detoxification


So now that you know a bit more about these harmful chemicals and heavy metals, you’re probably wondering what you can do to eliminate them from your body. Have no fear infrared saunas are here.

Yes, that’s right, Dry Infrared Sauna Heat Therapy For Detoxification is One of the best ways for someone to detox all of these chemicals and heavy metals PLUS you get even more health benefits with regular sauna bathing. Let me explain.

A dry infrared sauna uses carbon heating panels that heat your body directly without warming the air around you as in a traditional steam sauna.

The infrared rays emitted from these carbon panels, penetrate deep down into the skin about 1-2 inches to heat you from the inside out.

As the core body temperature rises, producing a faux fever, your body starts to sweat.

But wait a minute, aren’t my kidneys and liver supposed to be eliminating these toxins. The answer is yes, however, let’s just stop and think for a minute. If your body is being exposed to so many harmful toxins and chemicals on a regular basis, do you think that the cells of the organs may be a bit overtaxed? How well are your kidney’s and liver cells working if they too are being affected?
So using your skin which is the largest organ of your body to do the work makes sense. But don’t take my word for it. There are many studies showing that the amount of toxins and chemicals found in sweat vs urine and blood to be much higher. Making dry infrared sauna heat therapy for detoxification the best device to use.

In fact, sauna detoxification protocols have been used to help many gulf war veterans and 9/11 first responders. It just so happens, we are starting to see an increase in sauna sales for firehouses.

In conclusion, we live in a very toxic world, in which we have no control over the amounts of toxins and chemicals entering into our bodies. BUT, we can control getting them out!

Through all the research and medical studies available to us today, proving that
sweating out the small stuff is good for us, sorry Steven Covey, and the safest and the most effective way to induce a detoxifying sweat is through the use of a dry infrared sauna.

Four reasons I believe saunas are beneficial for your health that are backed by science: Reduce inflammation (inflammation leads to chronic disease), Speeds up recovery (especially awesome if you’re sore after workouts. If you can alleviate soreness, you can actually speed up progress as well), Increases blood flow (which is why it helps with recovery time your muscles are getting the nutrients they need from the increased blood flow), Flushes toxins (you’re sweating the toxins out every time you sit in the sauna). I try to use mine at least two to three times a week for thirty minutes each time. ~Drew Manning
