How to Lose Weight in an Infrared Sauna
An infrared sauna can burn between 300 to 600 calories during per session. This happens due to the sweating process itself, as well as increased heart rate. Even though most of the weight lost in infrared saunas is water, regular sauna use can complement a weight-loss program according to a new Crystal Sauna study.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB)
August 20, 2008 -- Many people question the fact that infrared sauna
can help people lose weight due to their misunderstanding on the part
that infrared sauna contribute to weight management. Crystal Sauna has
conducted an objective research on how infrared sauna can help people
lose weight. The research results came with a clear explanation on what
part infrared saunas play in weight management.
The research shows infrared sauna use can burn as many as 300 to 600 calories during one sauna session. This happens due to the sweating process itself, as well as increased heart rate. Even though most of the weight lost in infrared saunas is water, regular sauna use can complement a weight-loss program. Sauna removes water from body as well as salt. One may question what has salt to do with weight loss. Well, salt in our body is deposited beneath the skin and for the salt to remain nontoxic, it requires water. Hence to keep the body intoxicated, lot of water is required and this adds to the bulk. Now the sauna helps reduce weight by removing the excess salt in the body, which is deposited under the skin along with water.
An infrared sauna assists in weight loss in three significant ways:
1. It effectively reduces heavy metals which have been directly related to metabolic imbalances in the body causing poor digestion and weight gain.
2. It decreases fat stored (lipophilic) toxins. Often weight loss cannot be accomplished unless these toxins are first removed.
3. Although weight loss due to perspiration (water loss) is quickly regained, sending more blood to the capillaries and converting fats and carbohydrates results in as much as 600 calories burned during one short sauna session.

Beside Crystal Sauna's research, there are many doctors, health care professionals and fitness trainers who recommend infrared saunas because of the overwhelming benefits they provide. Dr. Sherry Rogers, a fellow of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and a diplomat of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, says in her book "Detoxify or Die" that an infrared sauna is the only way of removing man-made toxins from your body. Dr. Rogers also states that bio-accumulated toxic load in the human body is responsible for all disease not attributable to bacteria or virus.
Moreover, Dr. Mark Hyman, author of NY Times bestselling book "Ultrametabolism" and an infrared sauna user stated that, "Saunas are an important aid to weight loss and thyroid repair because as you lose weight, fat tissue releases stored toxins such as PCBs and pesticides."
