The system takes in the light particles and processes them in the direction of the bacteria, germs, and harmful particles. It detoxifies the body from them, aiming to heal the body and reduce the chances of catching a toxic disease.
Our immune system is a support system for all the other functions in the body. Infrared sauna has anti-aging properties that keep the immune system intact for longer life.
The heat created in this process releases a lot of sweat from the body which removes all kinds of impurities from the skin. Stress has been known to be one of the major causes of weakening the immune system.

Wow that was incredibly interesting. I have not ever seen anything like this.
We’re always learning :) :)
Haven’t heard of this before now I will have to find out if there is one nearby! Many thanks Christy. :)
Great to hear you’ve found some useful information on infrared saunas here, Marje!!
Excellent post and one I read with interest. I have used them over the years and yes they are great.
I have also tried many of the older detoxing saunas out there. Of all I found the Native Sweat Lodge to be the best. Years ago I had a terrible cold while on the East Coast my Mi’kmaw friends on Chapel Island suggest a sweat. The next morning I was as good as new fishing for lobster. Years later I built my own and it was a regular pastime summer and winter.
Thanks for sharing…
Hugs from Alberta
Fabulous article Christy. These are amazing. I’ve tried them and almost had one put in our last house til we found out we were downsizing. But they are so beneficial. <3
You know, I haven’t ever heard of infrared saunas, but it seems like scientists are making leaps and bounds with technologies that, in synergy with nature, can produce some amazing results, such as you have outlined here. Well done! I’m going to have to look into this – I haven’t frequented spas that much, but perhaps that needs to change. :)
Sending you hugs and wishes for a wonderful weekend! xoxo
Terrific post, Christy. Motivated me to find a spa near me that offers infrared sauna ~ and it’s only a few blocks away. Thanks so much for posting this ♥
I hit the enter button accidentally. I’m a better doctor than typist!
They provide all the benefits you mention WITHOUT CAUSING ANY HARM (on a cellular level) to the rest of the body. This is a modality currently used with patients suffering cancer. It is implemented (depending on the type of cancer) as a modality part of a treatment protocol.

I’m currently in Finland, where the sauna is indispensable of course. I find it relaxing, good for my skin and muscles and good for getting in touch with yourself. It works very well! Thanks for sharing your wisdom 😊
This is all new information to me Christy. It sounds like it is something that could be very beneficial for a number of uses. Perhaps this method could someday replace decontamination showers for those exposed to viral agents?
Never heard of it, hope I would find one here !
I understand better why in certain countries the sauna became a culture to see better, a rite… The Middle East, suede, Iceland, Finland, Denmark, Norway…
Good day Christy
I kiss(embrace) you
Interesting. I never heard about this before, but my concern would be sharing those germs with others.
I’ve owned one for years and take it for granted, but your post has made me realize just how lucky I am to own one!
well, i hadn’t heard about that one. but if it kills germs and bacteria, won’t that expose us to others our body isn’t prepared for?
