|Near Infra-Red Sauna|
One of the fundamental methods for detoxification used at Hope4Cancer is the near infra-red sauna. Near infra-red light assists in the removal of chemical toxins and heavy metals through the sweat glands. It also increases oxygenation and enhances the immune system while reducing the radiation burden in the body by removing radioactive particles resident in the tissues.
The sauna near infra-red heat penetrates into the body stimulating the sweating process without the feelings of suffocation and discomfort that are common in high temperature dry and steam heat saunas. The following effects are observed:
1. The sauna creates a "fever" reaction that kills potentially dangerous viruses and bacteria and increases the number of white blood cells in the body, strengthening the immune system.
2. Helps excrete toxins from the body including cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel, sodium, sulfuric acid and mercury.
3. Stimulates dilation of blood vessels, especially the peripheral ones, which helps enhance blood flow deep in the tissues, providing pain relief besides enhanced nutrition.
Near infra-red heat is considered to be completely safe and more impactful than the higher energy far infra-red radiation devices that are available in the market.
