Why does Infrared Sauna therapy remove more toxins from the body than normal sweat?
Many medical professionals believe that harmful toxins which are ingested, inhaled or absorbed through the skin into our body are kept out of harms way by water and fat molecules forming clusters around the toxins. This reduces their ability to disrupt cell function and DNA structure. The theory of resonant absorption suggests that a specific frequency (9.4 microns) of infrared light acts upon the water molecules within our cells, exciting them and making them vibrate energetically enough to break the ionic bonds which hold the water molecules together around the toxins. These clusters are thus broken down making it easier for the body to sweat the toxin molecules directly out of the skin, resulting in much higher levels of toxins being removed from the body. More research is warranted on this topic to prove it beyond doubt but enough is written about it from various sources around the world to suggest merit in this idea.
