Full spectrum infrared saunas are a popular therapy for a variety of health concerns, including tick-borne infections like Borrelia, detoxification, methylation, weight loss, blood pressure, and autoimmune skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Here are some key points about how full spectrum infrared saunas can help:

  1. Tick-Borne Infections:
  • Full spectrum infrared saunas can help kill Borrelia bacteria, the bacteria that causes Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections.
  • Infrared light penetrates deep into the tissues, stimulating cellular repair and detoxification, which can help eliminate Borrelia and other pathogens from the body.
  • Studies have shown that infrared saunas can be effective in reducing symptoms and improving quality of life in individuals with Lyme disease (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4488695/).
  1. Detoxification and Methylation:
  • Infrared saunas can help support detoxification by promoting sweating and eliminating toxins from the body.
  • Infrared light also helps support methylation, a process that plays a critical role in detoxification and immune function.
  • Studies have shown that infrared saunas can help improve methylation and reduce levels of heavy metals in the body (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3916912/).
  1. Weight Loss and Blood Pressure:
  • Infrared saunas can help promote weight loss by increasing metabolism and promoting fat burning.
  • Infrared light also helps improve blood flow and reduce inflammation, which can help lower blood pressure.
  • Studies have shown that infrared saunas can be an effective adjunct therapy for weight loss and hypertension (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3312275/).
  1. Autoimmune Skin Conditions:
  • Infrared saunas can help improve symptoms of autoimmune skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis by reducing inflammation and promoting detoxification.
  • Infrared light also helps stimulate collagen production and promote wound healing, which can help improve skin health.
  • Studies have shown that infrared saunas can be effective in reducing symptoms and improving quality of life in individuals with psoriasis and eczema (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4493260/).

In conclusion, full spectrum infrared saunas are a versatile therapy that can help with a variety of health concerns, including tick-borne infections, detoxification, methylation, weight loss, blood pressure, and autoimmune skin conditions. The mechanism of action of infrared saunas involves promoting sweating, improving blood flow and oxygenation, and stimulating cellular repair and detoxification. While more research is needed to fully understand the benefits and risks of this therapy, it is becoming increasingly popular as a complementary therapy to conventional treatments. Individuals considering full spectrum infrared saunas should consult with a healthcare practitioner to determine if this therapy is right for them.
