Besides radioactive substances, mercury is the most toxic element you’ll ever come into contact with. It gets into your body from old dental fillings, large ocean fish such as tuna and swordfish, and polluted air or water. Once there, it binds to sulfur-containing molecules and concentrates in fatty tissues, where it can cause a whole host of health problems, including frequent headaches, fibromyalgia, and even dementia. The only way to purge this poison from your body is through detoxification.
Far infrared saunas are a critical tool in any heavy metal detox protocol. They produce heat that penetrates more deeply into tissue than a traditional sauna, thereby helping to mobilize the mercury and other toxins stored in fat. These mobilized toxins can then be excreted by the kidneys, bowels, and sweat glands to lower your total toxicity.
Research supports the case for using infrared saunas to remove mercury. One study showed that sweat generated from a regular sauna or ordinary exercise was 95 to 97% water. By contrast, sweat produced by an infrared unit was only 80 to 85% water, with the remainder made up of harmful substances like cholesterol, sulfuric acid, ammonia, and heavy metals.
To further enhance your results, you might want to consider using your Clearlight sauna in conjunction with the following detox aids:
