Chiropractor Memphis Explains Why You Should Use An Infrared Sauna

Chiropractic Memphis TN Infrared Sauna

Are you looking for a way to boost your body's ability to detox, increase your ability to fight colds, and burn extra calories with little effort? Adding an infrared sauna to your healthcare routine in Memphis may be the answer for you.

Sweating helps your body to detox, but utilizing an infrared sauna helps release even more toxins that have been allowed to build up over time, including heavy metals and environmental chemicals. The addition of an infrared sauna is said to be more effective in moving toxins through the skin than traditional saunas because in an infrared sauna only 80 to 85% of the sweat is water with the non-water portion being cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals, sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia, and uric acid.(1) The removal of these toxins also helps improve the look of your skin! The heat of the infrared sauna also feels less "harsh" than the environment in a traditional sauna.

Another added benefit of the sauna is to give your body a moment to relax. I jokingly call it the busy person's "penalty box," but the ability to take time to be alone for 30 minutes is an important investment in your health, and relaxation helps lower the body's cortisol (stress hormone) levels. This frees up your body to do more important things like make sex hormones. Another benefit of balanced cortisol is it allows the blood sugar to also balance more easily. This is important for everyone in Memphis but especially for those who are suffering from diabetes or metabolic syndromes. The heat in the sauna heats up your body's core temperature which, in turn, causes your heart to beat faster. This increase in heart rate is like the increase you have when performing exercise. The body is also forced to work to lower your core temperature and has to burn calories to accomplish this.

I know when my body is sore or aching, at Midtown Chiropractic, I tend to reach for a heating pad because I find it to be more soothing. The sauna envelopes your aching joints with healing heat and helps increase your circulation, which in turn, helps bring more healing properties to your aching joints and muscles. I injured my lower back and was unable to lift my youngest, Charlie, but after two adjustments (thankfully I married a chiropractor) and three sauna sessions, I could move freely and care for my son with no discomfort.
