All day long, we are exposed to harmful everyday pollutants and toxins that are often absorbed by our bodies. These toxins often go unnoticed, but over time, they can damage our cells and vital systems and impair the body’s ability to repair and retain the minerals and nutrients it needs. At Innovative Medicine in Lafayette, we provide the means for getting your body of these toxins. Sweating is essential for detoxing. Using an infrared sauna regularly is a great way to aid your body with its natural detox process.
A Basic Guide to Infrared Sauna Use
Using this method of detoxification and relaxation is simple once you get used to it, but for all the benefits, there are some key tips to remember before, during, and after use. There are many types of saunas, but we will focus on the infrared kind because of its greater detoxifying benefits.
Before you start, it’s a good idea to take a quick rinse or wash your face and dry off before you get in. Rinsing helps by clearing up your pores and making it so that you don’t have product dripping into your eyes as you sweat. It’s also helpful to bring a towel to sit on as the benches get hot. The heat in an infrared sauna will cause you to sweat, which is a big part of releasing toxins, so you want to make sure you are hydrated. Drink plenty of water before you get in.
If you’re a beginner, it’s generally a good idea to start on the lower end of the temperature range. Give the sauna some time to heat up. Once you’re in the sauna, sit or lay down on your towel and relax. It’s important to never push past your limits. If you’re new and you feel uncomfortable, step out for a break and get back in again when you’re ready. Seasoned sauna users can spend more time enjoying this detox, but it’s important to work your way up at your own pace.
When you’re done with your session, give your body some time to cool down. Drink more water and spend a few minutes cooling down and relaxing. After you’ve cooled down, you can also take a cool shower to close up your pores.
