The River Source offers infrared sauna treatments to assist patients in the detox and recovery process. Sauna detox is becoming a more popular method for treating certain conditions, but it’s still new to many people. Regardless of what an infrared sauna treatment is being used for – fibromyalgia, heart support or drug addiction – the goal is the same. To rid the body of heavy metals and toxic chemicals to aide in healing and restoration.

Let’s explore more about sauna detox and why it’s one of the safest way to remove toxins from the body.

The Role of Sauna Detox

Everyone is exposed to heavy metals and toxins. If these toxins build up in the body, it can lead to a wide range of symptoms such as digestive distress, chronic fatigue or generally feeling ill. It’s also believed that a buildup of toxins can lead to diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and certain cancers.

When a person abuses drugs or alcohol, the toxins in the body are even greater. Not only are they regularly feeding their bodies with harmful chemicals and poisons, but also they usually are not taking care of themselves. It’s rare to meet an addict who eats healthy, stays hydrated and exercises!

By the time a person comes to us for treatment, their body is very run down. It’s addicted and almost always malnourished. Depending on the addiction, the addict may be over- or underweight. In order to go through the withdrawal process and have the energy to succeed in counseling, sauna detox is an effective treatment.

Benefits of Sauna Therapy

Sweating is one of the body’s most safest and natural ways to heal the body and maintain good health. Here are some of the benefits that can be expected from infrared sauna treatments.

  • Skin cleansing. The skin is the largest organ in the body and the main barrier against environmental toxins. Through detox, toxins are pushed out of the pores so that the skin can be an effective barrier.

  • Purification. Sweating and increased circulation can purify the body from toxins. Preventing toxic buildup can prevent a wide range of symptoms and chronic health conditions.

  • Circulation. The heat from the sauna induces relaxation and increases heart rate. This improves overall circulation and may help your body release toxins even when you’re not in the sauna.

  • Fever response. Fevers are a natural response to killing harmful microorganisms in the body. Sitting in a sauna provides similar effects, potentially killing off bacteria, viruses and tumor cells.
