Why The Need To Detoxify On A Regular Basis?
Our bodies have become virtual dumping grounds for hundreds of thousands of toxic compounds that invade our air, water and even the soil in which our food grows. Today, more than 77,000 chemicals are in active production in this country, and more than 3,000 chemicals are in our food supply.
The EPA estimates that our bodies cannot metabolize over 20,000 of these chemicals. So what happens to them? These toxic substances are stored in fat cells throughout our bodies where they continue to accumulat3e. In fact, studies indicate that most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies.
Together, with heavy metals, these toxins create a situation of chronic toxic overload. As these toxins build up, they can cause enzyme dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies, create hormonal imbalances, damage brain chemistry, and can even lead to cancer and other debilitating chronic illness.

- What are heavy metals?
Heavy metals are toxic substances that are found everywhere in our environment including our food, water and even in so-called “health” products. When introduced into our body and not excreted, they have many adverse effects on all tissues and systems within the body. Heavy metals include mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, nickel and arsenic, all of which are dangerous substances. They damage the body on molecular, cellular, tissue and organ levels. Avoiding heavy metals and removing the accumulation is an iportant factor in achieving an optimum state of health and wellness.
- What is detoxification?
Detoxification is the process of eliminating toxins and wastes from our body. Over time, we build up toxins that we are exposed to from our environment and from what we consume. Toxins can also build up as a result of internal systemic infection.
Common methods of detoxification include:
• Colon Hydrotherapy/Colonics
• Liver, Gall bladder and Kidney flushes
• Far-Infrared Sauna
• Skin Brushing
• Biologic Dentistry to remove oral toxins
Whole Body Detoxification Using Far Infrared Sauna.
Our level of toxic exposure far outstrips our body’s natural elimination mechanisms. To stay healthy and strong in this chemical-ridden world, it is essential to help the body with its removal of harmful waste products. The solution – regulars, effective, whole-body detoxification. Far infrared sauna therapy boosts the body’s ability to detoxify, leading to significant and lasting health benefits.

How Do Far Infrared Saunas Work?
Far infrared is a section of the natural band of light that is not visible to the human eye, but can be felt as heat. Unlike the high heat produced in traditional saunas, far infrared heat is able to penetrate the body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches. This stimulates the body’s cellular detoxification process more effectively than a traditional sauna.
The body, incapable of metabolizing and excreting all toxins it is exposed to, often times stores toxin in fat to protect the body. These are called lipophillic toxins.
Our body’s tissues normally produce infrared energy, which is used by the body for a number of healing processes. By delivering penetrating warmth to the body, the far infrared sauna increases the body’s own infrared energy levels, encouraging a slight rise in body temperature that boosts natural detoxification systems.
The far infrared sauna duplicates these healthy far infrared frequencies. The tissues selectively absorb these rays as the water in the cell reacts in a process called “resonant absorption”. This resonant absorption occurs when the frequency of the far infrared matches the frequency of the water in the cell, causing toxins to be dropped off into the blood stream and excreted in sweat, feces and urine.
Thus, by removing stored toxins through these three processes of elimination, the immune system is stimulated. Additionally you will experience improved cardiovascular conditioning, stress reduction, enhanced sleep, weight loss, cellulite reduction, pain relief and will beautify the skin.
