Infrared Saunas enhance the immune system and reduce the burden of toxins in the body.
Since Cancer often occurs in tissues with poor circulation and oxygenation, it makes sense why improving circulation would greatly benefit the healing process.
The health benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy for Cancer are a combination of mechanisms that act simultaneously.
For instance, because cancer cells are weaker than healthy cells, they are more susceptible to the damage heat can cause. Heating the body also known as hyperthermia, is a well-known method of killing cancer cells.
Saunas enhance circulation which helps to bring essential nutrients, hormones, oxygen, and other substances to the body. Since Cancer often occurs in tissues with poor circulation and oxygenation, it makes sense why improving circulation would greatly benefit the healing process. This increased circulation also causes the blood to move toward the surface of the body which helps to decongest the internal organs such as the liver and kidneys.
The heat that Saunas produce creates sweat which cleanses the skin from the inside out. Skin is a major eliminative organ and is important for oxygenation of the body.
Toxins often activate the sympathetic nervous system, and excessive activity of this system has been shown as a contributing factor in many cancer cases. Therefore, therapies such as Infrared Sauna that inhibit the sympathetic nervous system are beneficial for cancer recovery.
Sauna Therapy is considered an oxygen therapy which is widely used by holistic physicians in the treatment of Cancer.
Infrared resonates at the frequency of water, increasing the activity of water molecules in the cells. Saunas help remove lead, copper, mercury, arsenic, and cyanide and help to balance the body’s pH. They also help to balance excessively acid and alkaline body chemistries.
