Burn Calories in a 30 minute Sunlight Sauna Session:
Studies have shown a 30 minute far infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories. As the body works to cool itself while using far infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Blood flow during whole body hyperthermia is reported to rise from a normal 5-7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.
*Sunlight Saunas far infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to far infrared sauna heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat. Check out the results with a heart rate monitor and you will be amazed.
Lower Blood Pressure:
Sunlight Saunas Solocarbon heaters were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri Kansas City in 2005 and were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute infrared sauna session three times per week.
Therapy for Pain Relief:
New clinical research on pain offers evidence to establish a novel class of pain “heat responsive pain or HRP, which encompasses several common pain conditions that can be treated with the use of heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back, upper body and menstrual pain, all conditions that fall under the new HRP classification.
A case study reported in Sweden involved a 70 year old man who had rheumatoid arthritis secondary to acute rheumatic fever. He had reached his toxic limit of gold injections and his erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) was still 125. After using a far infrared sauna for less than five months, his ESR was down to 11. A rheumatologist worked with a 14 year old Swedish girl who had trouble walking downstairs due to knee pain from the age of eight. This therapist told her mother the girl would be in a wheelchair within 2 years if she did not begin gold corticosteroid therapy. After three far infrared sauna treatments, she began to become more agile and subsequently took up folk dancing without the aid of conventional approaches. A clinical study in Japan reported a successful solution for seven out of seven cases of rheumatoid arthritis treated with whole body far infrared sauna therapy.
