Avondale received a super special gift for Christmas 2015 – an Infrared Sauna for upcoming Retreats!!
Why are we so overjoyed with this addition to our centre…
Toxins are readily Expelled when Using the Sauna
According to Dr. Clement of the Hippocrates institute, infrared saunas help release every type of toxic contamination you have in your body; most notable of which are mercury and lead. However, calcium is another. We’re not talking about natural calcium here, but the types of calcium added to many processed foods that your body cannot process. Dr. Clement’s book Supplements Exposedaddresses the problem with many nutritional supplements and fortified foods.
“[Most supplements] are made out of petrochemicals, and coal tar, and turpentine—Vitamin E is an example,” he says.“What happens is that if you look at calcium, the two most common, 88 percent are made either out of oyster shells that are totally indigestible, or chalk, which is a known carcinogen! Now, this is insanity, and how we allow this is corrupt, but we won’t get into that today.
… [A]ll that calcium that you consume… that your body cannot process, lodges inside of your muscles. A lot of these muscular diseases we have today, and painful diseases, like fibromyalgia [can be due to this.]”
Other contaminants being eliminated include drugs and environmental chemicals that you’re exposed to.
Infrared saunas can remove the accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, and cholesterol. Wherever toxins accumulate, the blood circulation is blocked, due to the acidic nature of the toxins. The saunas expand the clogged capillary vessels and dissolve the toxins into the bloodstream where they then leave the body through sweat, urine, etc. As well as this amazing detoxification, infrared saunas can also be used to help with weight loss, cardiac problems, skin problems, acne, and many other health issues. They are also fantastic for relieving stress.
Infrared saunas require 90 percent less energy than traditional saunas and also heat up much faster. The calories used during half an hour in an infrared sauna is more than what would be used by a person running for the same amount of time. An infrared sauna can be used by a person with respiratory problems as the air itself is not heated like it is in a traditional sauna.
Some Other Benefits of the Infrared Sauna
The infrared sauna has many health benefits including:
• deep relaxation
• reducing muscular stress, tension, and physical fatigue
• aids in increasing heart rate, cardiac output, and helps with faster calorie burning
• improves skin tone, texture, and colour
• allows for deep cleansing, eliminating impurities and removing dead skin cells
• increased energy
• improves healing time from injuries, as well as relieving pain
• by creating an “artificial fever”, the sauna actually improves the body’s immune system, as the function of the immune system is increased during a fever state
• increased muscle growth
• reduced cellulite
• raises growth hormone levels.
Big shout out to David’s family who have always been wonderful in helping us construct our dream retreat centre, this addition really is special. I plan to detox over the coming year. Bye bye nasty chemicals or toxins that have sneaked up on me. Very glad to welcome only the fresh air of Avondale in!
If you have ever experienced the powerful effects of infrared saunas let us know, we are intrigued to hear more… The research I have been doing indicates that these are the best for getting under the skin without making you sweat profusely on the outside, leading to real healing and lasting results. It is advised working up slowly starting in 4 minute stints to get to 15 minutes when the benefits can truly be felt. Followed by a super steamy shower in our wet room, we will be blissed!!
