There’s no denying that the biggest selling point of an infrared sauna is their highly touted health benefits. However, those unacquainted with saunas might harbor skepticism that something so simple can be so healthy. After all, no pain, no gain. But this isn’t always the case, especially when it comes to flushing out the body's toxins.
Sources of Heavy Metal Contamination
You might remember from high school chemistry class that heavy metals (e.g., lead, cadmium, mercury, and arsenic) are naturally occurring elements with relatively high atomic weights and densities. But even though these elements are useful in the fields of industry and technology, too many heavy metals can bring a health risk to human beings. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2F086T7

Now that you have decided to buy an infrared sauna for your home, you now must think what size that you need. For some people, a unit for one person works fine. However, there are cases when a c need for more space arises. If you are not sure if this applies to you, look for these signs to see whether a 3-person infrared sauna is your best fit.
The Size of Your Home
If you have extra space in your home, there’s no point in just getting a small infrared sauna. Instead, install a larger unit. You can transform an entire section of your home into a wellness sanctuary or private spa area. You can also arrange the space in a way that the larger infrared sauna serves as a focal point in this part of your home. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2EcWQBz

You often hear about the wonders of the no EMF infrared sauna and its supposed health benefits. No EMF (electromagnetic field), can be deemed as a novel concept since EMFs are produced whenever an electrical potential (voltage) and an active electrical current (amperage) exist. Fortunately, the advances in technology make it possible for an electrical appliance, such as modern saunas, to release minimal to zero EMF while in use.
What Is EMF and How Does It Affect the Body?
Electromagnetic field (EMF) is composed of electrically charged particles in constant motion, consequently creating a magnetic field. In the real world, the sources of EMF are practically everywhere. EMF can either be natural or man-made. It is especially strong in locations where a local buildup of electric charges (i.e. modern saunas) occurs.
Since EMF is not a novel phenomenon, people wrongly assume that it doesn't impart any adverse effects on the human body. This assumption sounds like it should be correct because the human body is capable of grounding EMF and EMR (electromagnetic radiation) because of the body’s natural electrical conductivity.

Toxins are not ingested solely from the air you breathe, though many are airborne. They prevail in many common foods you eat, which is precisely why detoxing regularly is highly encouraged. It is the only way your body can completely flush out these toxins.
One of the best ways to detoxify the body is through sweat, something that infrared saunas promote. These sauna units are designed to provide you with therapeutic heat, allowing your body to expunge any harmful substances. To better illustrate, note the following toxins from food that a sauna session can eradicate.
According to The Center of Ecogenetics and Environmental Health at the University of Washington, pesticides are sprayed regularly on a wide variety of crops. These include vegetables, fruits, olives, wheat, canola and rice. At the same time, pesticides are also used on various crops that are typically fed to animals.

Domestic partners reinforce their relationships through intimate settings and shared activities. Such experiences have a positive impact each other's health and wellbeing. Many people in lasting relationships reported a higher quality of life and happiness than those who are single.
On the other hand, intimacy can also generate that remain unresolved, particularly when couples grow apart from each other. Hence, marital and relationship counselors recommend the establishment of shared activities as a means of increasing affinity and connection. Far infrared saunas are the perfect venue for shared activity for couples, not only in the emotional sense. They also offer many physical health benefits.

Why is a far infrared sauna so highly recommended by spa experts? For one, it offers numerous health benefits. Almost as importantly, it is also easy to clean and maintain. To give you a better idea of how beneficial having this kind of sauna really is, check out the following maintenance regimen.
Sweep or Vacuum the Floor
Especially when you plan to use an oxygen ionizer inside your far infrared sauna, the likelihood of unwanted particles collecting on the floor after each use is high. This buildup results from ionizers that produce negative ions whose sole mission is to bond with positive ions, such as bacteria and mold. Together, they develop a mass that gravitates to the sauna floor. To eradicate this buildup, you must simply sweep or vacuum the sauna after each session.

The demands of intense sports can result in not only short-term pain, but also chronic injuries. Moreover, not every athlete responds well to traditional medicine, which entails additional, complementary recovery procedures. Consequently, coaches, therapists, and players are looking for new, alternative ways of recovering and improving their performance. In fact, many of them advocate the use of far infrared sauna therapy in recognition of studies and anecdotal evidence that illustrate the following four health outcomes.
1. Optimal Endurance Recovery
Far infrared sauna heat can restore an athlete's endurance to optimal levels. Mero, Tornberg, Mäntykoski, and Puurtinen, biological researchers from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, examined the impacts of far infrared sauna bathing on the recovery of 10 men who completed strength and endurance training sessions. They conducted an hour of strength training sessions, followed by 34 to 40 minutes of maximal endurance training sessions. These were followed by a 30-minute far infrared sauna session. Far infrared sauna therapy was found to recover their performance to an optimal level of endurance. The researchers explained that the deep penetration of far infrared heat, aided by light humidity, can reach at least four centimeters into fatty tissues and the neuromuscular system, thereby proving favorable to the body's recuperation.
