What do the doctors say?
After observing the results obtained by patients using infrared saunas, world-renowned physician and author Dr. Sherry A. Rodgers, M.D. had this to say about infrared saunas:
“no surgery, no drug is available to give this type of therapeutic result. the whole family can use the far-infrared sauna…”
Dr. Richard Beever, clinical assistant professor of family medicine at the University of British Columbia, reviewed all what do the doctors say?the studies he could find on infrared saunas and states that the evidence shows infrared saunas do indeed work in treating high blood pressure, relieving chronic pain, and reduce the odds of congestive heart failure. When Dr. Beever applied infrared sauna therapy to his own patients suffering from chronic pain, a 54.1% increase in sleep quality was found, as well as a 27.3% improvement in the speed at which injured employees returned to work. (These figures are well beyond the measure of statistical significance prescription medications must demonstrate before being approved by the FDA.)
Dr. Brian Clement, medical director of the Hippocrates Health Institute said the following about infrared saunas’ unique ability to detoxify the body: “We know that[…] for every 17 micrograms of lead in your body, your IQ [intelligence quotient] is reduced by 10 points. Now, think of that. How many of us would have been much brighter if we didn’t grow up in a time where they used lead paint or lead in the automobile fumes? So, we are detoxifying disease-causing elements from the body.”
