health benefits of sudatonic's
REDUCES STRESS AND FATIGUE
Perhaps the most immediate relief that SUDATONIC™ Infrared System offers, is simple relaxation as it melts away the stresses and tension of "modern" life. Just a few minutes in the warmth of the Sudatonic™ blanket, and you begin to have an an overall massaging effect, soothing nerves and muscles. You'll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind.
REMOVES WASTES AND TOXINS
Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing stored toxins and wastes. Daily sweating will help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of highly toxic heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other compounds.
IMPROVES THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
The SUDATONIC™ Infrared System's deep heat raises your inner body temperature, inducing an artificial fever (mild hyperthermia). Fever is the body's natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. This enhanced immune system, combined with improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, increases your overall health and resistance to disease.
RELIEVES PAIN AND JOINT STIFFNESS
The deep heat of the SUDATONIC™ Infrared System helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. In Europe, radiant heat is widely used to help those with many forms of arthritis. It has been proven effective in the easing of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculoskeletal ailments. For athletes who push their bodies to the limit, creating lactic acid build-up, which often results in stiffness and pain, the SUDATONIC™ Infrared System offers sweet relief as it metabolizes and disperses the lactic acid. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen depleted muscles so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, promoting greater flexibility and range of motion. Much of the stiffness aches and soreness that come with aging are reduced or eliminated.
BURNS CALORIES. CONTROLS WEIGHT AND REDUCES CELLULITE
As you relax in the SUDATONIC™ Infrared blanket, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. Referring to "old fashioned, traditional saunas", The Journal of the American Medical Association stated, "in a single sauna session you may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes". Saunas have traditionally been used by European beauticians to help eliminate cellulite. Since the radiant heat of the SUDATONIC™ Infrared System warms many times more deeply as conventional saunas, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.
The profuse sweating achieved in the SUDATONIC™ Infrared System carries off deeply embedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean. Increased circulationdraws your skin's own natural nutrients to the surface. You will see improved tone, elasticity, texture, and fresh color. Increased blood circulation has also been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, lesions, and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly, reducing scarring.
INCREASES BLOOD CIRCULATION AND STRENGTHENS THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM
As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation,providing the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops.
Prescription Drugs: If you are using prescription drugs, check with your physician or pharmacist for possible changes in the drug's effect due to an interaction with infrared energy.
Certain Ailments: According to some authorities, it is considered inadvisable to raise the core temperature of someone with adrenal suppression, systemic lupus erythematosus, or multiple sclerosis.
Joint Problems: If a person has a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed infections be they dental, in joints, or in any other tissues.
Pregnancy: In pregnancy or the suspicion of pregnancy, discontinuation of sauna use is recommended. Finnish women use traditional saunas that don't heat the body as deeply as an infrared sauna for only six to twelve minutes and reportedly leave at that time due to perceived discomfort. Their usage of traditional saunas at this low level of intensity is not linked to birth defects. Infrared sauna use may be two to three times more intense due to deep tissue penetration, and comparatively shorter two to six minute sessions hardly seem worth any minimal risk they may present.
Surgical Implants: Surgical Implants: Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays and are not heated by an infrared heat system. Nevertheless, a person should consult his or her surgeon before making a Sudatonic™ appointment. Discontinue if a person experiences pain near any implants.
Silicone: Silicone does absorb infrared energy. Implanted silicone or silicone prostheses for nose or ear replacement may be warmed by infrared rays. Since silicone melts at over 200 degrees Celsius, it should not be adversely effected by an infrared heat system. However, it is still advised that a person checks with his or her surgeon, and possibly a representative of the product manufacturer, to be certain.
Menstruation: Heating of the low-back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. Once a woman is aware that this is occurring, she can choose to allow herself to experience this short-term effect without worry. Or she may simply avoid using an infrared heat source at that time in her cycle.
Hemorrhage: Hemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to hemorrhage should avoid infrared usage or any type of heating that would induce vasodilation that can lead to the tendency to bleed.
Worsened Condition: Should any condition worsen with the use of an infrared heat system, the use of the system should be discontinued.
Pain: Pain should not be experienced when using an infrared heat system. If one does, the use of radiant heat is clearly inappropriate for the person at that time.
