Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Sunlighten saunas are designed to promote deep, natural, detoxifying sweat.
Sauna detox is a widely-used treatment in alternative medicine. Recently, it has received significant mainstream attention as a result of a movement toward natural and self-directed treatments. The leading sauna detoxification principle suggests that common illnesses are caused by the build-up of toxic substances in the body. Ridding the body of these toxins through a natural sauna detox may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality.
Reports from the United States Center for Disease Control estimate that over 80% of all illnesses have causes rooted in personal environments or lifestyles. In an industrialized society, we can do little to reduce exposure to toxins in the air we breathe and the food we eat. As a result, sauna detox has become a leading treatment to achieve greater health and wellness.
Researchers have long known that toxic substances, including heavy metals, are secreted from the body through sweat. Therefore, the more one can safely sweat (while maintaining proper hydration), the greater quantity of toxins will be released from the body. Sauna usage is one of the most effective methods of inducing a detoxifying sweat. In a sauna detox, sweat carries toxins out of the body through the pores. But not all saunas are the same.
The far-infrared heat generated by a Sunlighten sauna produces sweat that carries nearly 20% toxins. In a traditional sauna, you can only expect up to 3% toxins. As such, a sauna detox in a Sunlighten sauna is up to 7 times more effective than in a traditional sauna. This incredible detoxification is accomplished through Sunlighten’s proprietary and highly-efficient infrared heating technology. Sunlighten’s heating technology is the only sauna heater clinically shown to actually raise core body temperature by 2 to 3 degrees (vs. simply heating the air around the body. As a result, regular usage of a Sunlighten sauna provides a truly deep, productive and detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
