The dangers of exposure to Heavy Metals are becoming a serious health risk, despite our medical advancement. Regardless, of how common the issue has become it does not make exposure any less harmful to our health. Nor does not matter how conscious we are about our diet, water consumption, medication/vaccines we take, or cosmetics used every aspect of daily life is contaminated.

In fact, most of the aforementioned heavy metals are probable carcinogens, and they exert a variety of toxic effects on many important bodily systems, including the nervous, endocrine, renal, musculoskeletal, immunological, and cardiovascular systems.

These elements have no physiological benefits, and instead, pose a toxic burden on the body. In fact, many of these harsh heavy metals include, cadmium, chlorine, mercury, and lead. Acute exposure can cause numerous symptoms of numbness, confusion, dizziness, and a general ill feeling. Chronic exposure may produce, fatigue, inflammation, digestive and immune impairment. However, if the information seems ominous, not to worry, there are many options to reduce exposure and maintain better health.

How to detox the body

Although the body has amazing systems that support and detoxify overexposure to any toxins it can clog these channels and cause a buildup that is very difficult to eliminate. Instead, the body has no choice but to find storage space for it in fat tissue, bones, joints, cartilage, etc.

A Valley of Vitality offers Infrared Sauna usage to reduce the body’s contamination of heavy metals. Infrared wavelengths penetrate deep into the body (via the skin) which releases toxins for the cell within fat layers and other tissue beneath the skin. Far Infrared raises your core temperature and heats the body several inches deep causing cells to vibrate. The vibration is the beginning of the detox process, the body will then be able to either eliminate these toxins via the skin (sweat) as well as via the kidney (urine).  But to enhance the benefits, please stay well hydrated prior and after the Infrared Sauna session.

What if I don’t sweat?

Infrared Saunas are designed for deep penetration of the body at a lower temperature. So, if you don’t sweat, don’t worry. Most people have a nice “glow” after their first infrared session. It can take time for the elimination channels and lymphatic system to activate and get you perspiring. Therefore, repeated use of the sauna in close succession is recommended, along with staying hydrated so the parasympathetic nervous system is activated.

A BUS study showed, “blood samples and urine samples tested for approximately 120 substances, some of them known toxic elements. The blood, sweat, and urine were collected from 20 individuals, including 10 healthy participants and 10 participants with existing health problems. The study cohort included 9 men and 11 women aged between 21 and 68 years old. The number of toxic substances cleansed by these individuals was then measured, and the sweat produced from visiting a sauna came out ahead of blood and urine, suggesting that the body can sweat out heavy metals.” So, just because you are not sweating heavily, the body will use other channels, usually the kidneys, to detoxify.

In conclusion

The body regulates body temperature by sweating which evaporates and causes a cooling effect. So, the presence of heavy metals and other toxins in sweat demonstrates that its part of the body’s detoxification process, along with the respiratory, digestive, and lymphatic systems.
