Infrared Sauna

sauna-mowryInfrared heat has some distinct advantages over traditional steam heat saunas, however many steam sauna advocates feel that an infrared sauna does not provide the same relaxing and invigorating experience as steam for a steam room or steam shower. This is an issue of personal preference.

Infrared heaters warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight. Infrared heat therapy uses the wavelength of the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight that heats the body normally.

Traditional steam saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air. infrared saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, infrared saunas heat the body directly. The result is a lower power bill and deeper tissue penetration. In the infrared sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna. Infrared saunas are safe for all ages.

Traditional saunas are more likely to spread and cultivate bacteria in the humid air, therefore an infrared sauna creates a more sanitary environment. An Infrared Sauna will heat up in a shorter time period than a steam sauna because it can heat the skin directly and does not need to heat the air. It should be noted that the steam from a steam shower heat is actually

The heat from the infrared sauna has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When the heat penetrates through skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissues causes bloods vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and the heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.

Ion Cleanse Foot Bath

What is Ion Cleanse Foot Bath?

An Ion Cleanse Foot Bath draws waste from the body though a unit placed in water with a positive and negative electric current. We simply add Sea Salt to the water before activating the ion array device. The process is completely pain free.

How does it work?

It is similar to walking in the sand along the beach only more powerful because your feet are in direct contact with the ions being made in the water.

What are the effects?

Because of poor diet and high stress, we tend to accumulate and store excessive quantities of waste products. During a 30 minute session, the ions enter your body and begin to neutralize these tissue acid wastes. The process is by way of reverse osmosis.

Why would I want to use the Ion Cleanse?

Used in combination with a nutritional program, this is an excellent way to enhance your cleansing and detoxification progress. It may be possible to reduce pain and other symptoms caused by a lifetime of toxic buildup in the body.

What else can I expect from an Ion Cleanse session?

Many colors and objects appear in the water during Ion Cleanse sessions. There is a reaction between the toxins and particles in the water, the salt added to the water, the metals in the array, and the acidity or alkalinity of the person being bathed. All of these combine to produce color, whether or not feet are in the water.

The basic color produced by these reactions varies from one geographic area to another. It is important to understand that the water will change color even if the unit is operating without feet in the water. The basic color change is a result of the reaction between all of the variables in the water and the array, as discussed above. This color change will vary in accordance with the toxic and chemical components of the water and air given a particular geographical area.

The toxins in our bodies will look the same as the toxins predominant in a specific area; however, there will be more toxic particles in the water with feet in it. You will also find that water-based toxins will not stick to the side of the bucket and array, whereas substances pulled from the body will form a sticky ring that must be removed with a detergent.

Ion Cleanse Foot Bath Color Table

We have also found that a person’s detoxification session will override the toxicity of the water. The following table shows what the colors in the water represent:

Color of the Water Area of the Body it Represents
yellow-green detoxifying from the kidney, bladder, urinary tract, female/prostate area
orange detoxifying from joints
brown detoxifying from liver, tobacco, cellular debris
black detoxifying from liver
dark green detoxifying from gallbladder
white foam lymphatic system
white cheese-like particles yeast
black flecks heavy metals
red flecks blood clot material
