Thermogenic theory states that increased body temperature from an F.S.I. Sauna session decreases muscular tension, which then causes the body to releases increased levels of norepinephrine and serotonin, thereby reducing stress within our brain cells and body.
Symptoms of S.A.D include: decreased levels of energy, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, increase in appetite, increased desire to be alone, increased need for sleep and weight gain.
Do the bleak winter months get you down more than you think they should? Maybe you have a seasonal depression, also known as seasonal affective disorder or SAD. Seasonal depression is a mood disorder that happens every year at the same time typically known as “winter depression”. Hormones manufactured deep in the brain automatically trigger attitudinal changes at certain times of the year. Experts believe that SAD is related to these hormonal changes. One theory is that reduced sunlight during the fall and winter leads to reduced production of serotonin in the brain. Seratonin is a neurotransmitter that has a soothing, calming effect. Many doctors recommend full spectrum infrared light (F.S.I. Sauna phototherapy) to help curb the effects of S.A.D.
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal and stay healthy. Our F.S.I. sauna’s carbon heaters are designed to provide the deepest, most detoxifying sweat available. The leading detoxification principle is that illnesses can be caused by the build-up of toxic substances. Ridding the body of these toxins can help relieve symptoms, prevent illness and increase overall health and vitality. Infrared heat is one of the most effective methods of inducing a detoxifying sweat. Our F.S.I. sauna produces a sweat consisting of nearly 20% toxins versus only 3% in a traditional sauna. Detoxification from our sauna is up to 7 times more effective than a traditional one.
Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75 to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system. Cortisol, a “fight-or-flight” hormone produced by the body, increases with stress, increasing heart rate and blood pressure and leading to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection. Scientific evidence shows that infrared therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. Our F.S.I. sauna is also effective in reducing both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.
One of the most compelling reasons to use our F.S.I. sauna is the natural pain relief associated with its use. In fact, pain relief is the single most common positive feedback given by customers regarding our particular sauna. The infrared heat that is emitted by our sauna works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues and by increasing circulation and oxygen flow. Based on clinical research, the infrared heat provided by our F.S.I sauna is proven to relieve pain from arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, sports injuries and other chronic painful conditions.
Each time you use our F.S.I sauna for infrared therapy you are giving yourself a passive cardiovascular workout… whenever you need it. A 30 minute session provides a cardio workout equivalent to 3 to 5 mile run. Heating muscles with our sauna’s infrared rays produces an increase in blood flow similar to exercise. In fact, blood flow with our infrared sauna use can rise from a normal rate of 5 to 7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.
When it comes to burning calories with infrared heat, infrared saunas have been clinically shown to dramatically aid in weight loss. Regular use of our F.S.I. sauna may be an effective means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories, akin to regular exercise.
A study showed that 30-minute infrared sauna weight loss sessions can burn upwards of 600 calories. During an F.S.I. sauna weight loss session, your core temperature increases and the body works hard to cool itself. While using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.
The infrared heat from our F.S.I. sauna penetrates deep enough to reach the cellulite layer, which helps our body break down and process the fat trapped in pockets beneath the skin. The majority of toxins stored in our bodies are trapped within the cellulite layer.
Infrared Sauna use may reduce the incidence of the common cold and temporarily relieve the symptoms. It increases performance in endurance sport, increases plasma volume in athletes, decreases systolic blood pressure, significantly improved exercise tolerance, increases peak respiratory oxygen uptake, and enhances anaerobic threshold in chronic conditions.
Regular use of our F.S.I saunas have been found to improve micro circulation and reduce vasoconstriction and hypertension. Many symptoms of chronic illnesses may be due to vasoconstriction effects (e.g. cold sensitivity, physical pain and even mood states); and our F.S.I. sauna improves micro circulation and blood supply to constricted areas.
Only our F.S.I. sauna’s patented light therapy technology can produce the near infrared spectrum that is conducive to wound healing. Our light-box allows you to bathe in safe near infrared light that promotes wound healing without activating the far infrared heaters of the sauna. The dangers associated with far infrared heat and wound healing cannot be overstated – you do not want to be immersed in a heated sauna with an open wound. Sweat contains toxins and other impurities which when introduced to an open wound, can cause all sorts of infections, some of them serious.
