Benefits of Infrared Sauna for Treating Lyme Disease
Infrared saunas are one of the most effective methods for detoxification. The body’s toxins are expelled through sweating. When Lyme disease infects a person’s bloodstream, toxins accumulate in the fat cells of the body. Thankfully, healthy heat from an infrared sauna helps to detoxify the body’s cells, expelling the toxins that currently inhabit your body. Compared to traditional saunas, infrared saunas eliminate significantly more toxins, as the heat is able to penetrate deeper into muscles, tissues, etc. Infrared saunas are typically less aggressive than traditional steam saunas. This gentle heat that’s given out helps to debilitate the disease-infecting parasite and can potentially kill other unwanted organisms within the body. It is said that the Lyme disease parasite is very sensitive and can’t survive in the heat itself. While it might not get rid of it all together, infrared saunas definitely provide major relief. By using an infrared sauna, you are using a non-toxic way to help lessen the effects of an unfortunate disease. Infrared heat has also been shown to increase blood circulation, relaxing tense muscles, which promotes overall pain relief of your body and in your muscles and joints.
A typical infrared sauna session lasts between 30 and 40 minutes. It is highly recommended to be hydrated before, during and after your session. Some clients do not sweat for the first five to ten minutes. When the body begins to release the toxins, your pores open and the sweat session begins.
