The best part of my day is after I get the kids to bed and I hop in our far infrared sauna at 150 degrees for 30 minutes. That’s my time to read, meditate, or watch some TV if I need some mindlessness.
My not-so-favorite part of the day, is getting in a freezing cold shower right after for a few minutes that seem like a lifetime, but I feel like a million bucks after.
The sauna is a way to sweat immensely, and get rid of the day’s toxins. For people who say our bodies are already built to get rid of toxins, and detoxing is silly, I say not even close. Today’s world is filled with an insane amount of chemicals that mother nature did not anticipate when our bodies were created. When I got hit with mold illness I was not taking my nightly saunas because I was nursing. I was holding onto everything, and I got very ill.
The freezing cold shower is what I do to make my mitochondria happy. In turn my skin looks better, my brain is clearer, and my gut functions better. Mitochondria takes in nutrients from our cells, breaks them down, and turns them into energy. They are a huge key to longevity, and if they are happy, you can greatly increase the way you look and feel.
The heat also triggers an increased production of white blood cells, which gives you a more robust immune system. In addition, it triggers cell regeneration, and turnover, allowing your body to get rid of old cells, and produce newer ones. All of these benefits lead to looking, and feeling, more youthful.
Clearlight Infrared Sauna® models are the only infrared sauna that cancels out both EMF and ELF. Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) are energy waves with frequencies below 300 hertz or cycles per second. Extremely low frequency (ELF) are the electric fields with frequencies from 3 to 30 hertz. Thanks to WiFi and cell phones, which make our lives very convenient, our bodies are bombarded by EMFs, and the last place you want them is where you’re trying to detox.
