Infrared Sauna for Weight Loss

Will a Far Infrared Sauna Really Help Me Lose Weight?

Yes! You Can Lose Weight Using an Infrared Sauna!

You can Lose up to 10 pounds in 30 days with regular sauna use while you relax and unwind in your personal sauna. Far infrared radiant heat will burn 600 + calories in a 30 minute session! Sweat off pounds and inches!

Fat and cellulite are gel-like substances made up of fatty deposit residues, water and toxic chemical wastes which are trapped in the subcutaneous layer of our bodies, just below the skin.

Far Infrared Heat directly targets the fatty tissues of the subcutaneous layer. Fat becomes water-soluble at a core body temperature of approximately 100.5 degrees F and will literally ‘melt’ by breaking up into smaller particles, which are purged from the body through rigorous sweating. Some of the fat molecules and toxins enter the blood stream to be eliminated by the liver, kidneys and bowels.

Profuse sweating, using a far infrared sauna, will help clear fat and toxic debris from the body, which will allow the body to rebalance its natural metabolism. A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn as much as 600+ calories, which is an easy and relaxing way to lose weight. (1)

Sweat therapy using infrared saunas has been extensively researched over the past 40 years and shown to be effective at reducing the amount of fatty tissues and toxic chemical residues. 

European beauty specialists confirm that a sauna will greatly speed any anti-cellulite program.  Far infrared sauna therapy is far more effective than a traditional sauna due to the unique properties of Resonant Absorption and the deep heat penetration into the body. (2) (3)

Cellulite reduction may be enhanced by vigorously massaging the affected areas during a far infrared sauna session

The body stores most of its toxic overload in fatty tissue cells. With regular infrared sauna use, the body becomes less toxic and produces less fat for toxin storage.  As the body becomes less toxic, proper metabolism and immune system strength are restored.  (4) (6)

If you are unable to achieve weight loss with dieting and exercise, your bodily fluids could be over acidic and toxic. Often times the body holds on to extra weight because it is toxic and in an acidic environment. When your system is too acidic, the body produces more insulin than usual. The more insulin that is available, the higher chance the fat will be stored rather than burned as energy, making it difficult for lose weight. To protect itself the body will hold onto the weight.  As the toxic chemicals are removed from the body, when using a far infrared sauna, weight loss is inevitable. (5) (7)

Often weight loss cannot be accomplished unless these toxins are first removed.

Regular use of a far infrared sauna can effectively reduce the body’s level of non-metabolized toxins, chemical residues and heavy metals, which have been directly related to metabolic imbalances in the body, causing poor digestion and weight gain.

Regular sessions using an infrared sauna decreases fat stored (lipophilic) toxins.

This benefit was recognized in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association in August 1981: “Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system.  Regular use of an infrared sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective a method of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, as regular exercise.”
