Weight Loss and the Far Infrared Sauna


Weight Loss and Cardiovascular Benefits

In Guyton's Textbook of Medical Physiology, we find that producing one gram of sweat requires 0.586 kcal. The JAMA citation referred to above goes on to state that,

"A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 gms. in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal - the equivalent of running 2 - 3 miles. A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600 - 800 kcal with no adverse effects. While the weight of the water loss can be regained by rehydration with water, the calories consumed will not be." Since an Infrared Sauna helps generate two to three times the sweat produced in a hot-air sauna, the implications for increased caloric consumption are quite impressive.

Burns 600 or more calories in just one 30-minute session!
Calories a 150-pound person normally burns up in 30-minutes of exercise.

Marathon Running.....................593
Vigorous Racquet Ball.............510
Swimming (crawl stroke).........300
Tennis (fast game)....................265
Cycling (10 mph).......................225
Golfing (without a cart).............150
Walking (3.5 mph)....................150

A far infrared sauna can, thus, play a pivotal role in both weight control and cardiovascular conditioning. This would be most valuable for those who don't exercise and those who can't exercise yet want an effective weight control and fitness maintenance program. This also allows for more variety in any ongoing training program.

Some weight loss authorities believe that our bodies use fat to dilute toxins. As an infrared sauna is an unsurpassed expeller of toxins, it is also a great way to get rid of any fat our bodies are using to dilute toxins we are storing.

The far infrared sauna has many benefits other than just for weight loss. Radiant heat is being absorbed by your body over 1-1/2" below the skin which helps with pain relief in: arthritis, fibromyalgia, backache, and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Infrared saunas also clear cellulite and improve skin tone and elasticity. Temperatures range from 110 - 130F versus 180 - 235F for a hot air sauna.
