Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy for Cancer Recovery
The health benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy make this treatment something to take into serious consideration, especially for anyone going through cancer recovery.
Cancer cells are weaker than healthy cells, making them more susceptible to the damage that heat can cause. Heating the body, also known as Hyperthermia, is a well-known method of killing cancer cells.
Toxins often activate the sympathetic nervous system, and excessive activity of this system has been shown to be a contributing factor in many cancer cases. Therefore therapies such as Infrared Sauna that inhibit the sympathetic nervous system are helpful for cancer recovery.
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 help in the healing process.
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, kidneys, and other internal organs.
The heat that saunas produce create sweat, which cleanses the skin from the inside out. Skin is a major excretion organ and is important for oxygenation of the body.
Sauna Therapy is considered an oxygen therapy, which is widely used by holistic physicians in the treatment of cancer.
Saunas help remove lead, copper, mercury, arsenic, and cyanide. They also help in the balancing of the body’s pH and excessively acidic and alkaline body chemistry.
Infrared resonates at the frequency of water and increases the activity of water molecules in the cells. It reduces the specific gravity of water which allows it to penetrate cells better.
