In today’s world, it’s virtually impossible to avoid harmful toxins. We are exposed to toxic substances through pesticides in our food supply, chemicals leeched from plastics, processed food, and ever-present pollution in the air. The list goes on. These environmental toxins block metabolic pathways in our body. This can result in numerous symptoms including: fatique, headaches, brain fog, skin rashes, gastro-intestinal upset, mild to severe swelling, high blood pressure, diabetes, weight gain as well as cancer. Toxins prevent nutrients and oxygen from being absorbed and utilized by our cells. They prevent our body from properly metabolizing fats and removing waste from our cells. And it can negatively affect our immune system. Unfortunately, the body cannot rid itself of these toxins without help.
Toxin Removal through Infrared Technology
Ways to Wellness MD offers environmental toxin removal to cleanse your body of harmful toxins through infrared sauna therapy. An infrared sauna looks similar to a traditional sauna. However, it uses different wavelengths to create heat that is able to penetrate your body at a cellular level. The infrared heat of this special sauna effectively leeches out five to seven times more toxins in fat cells, where these toxins are stored, than regular saunas.
You can schedule personal sauna time in the infrared sauna, which is located in the Ways to Wellness MD office. The length and frequency of sauna sessions vary. Your physician will help guide you on how to maximize detoxification benefits based on individual needs. Testing of toxin levels in your body can also be conducted before, during and after therapy to track effective toxin removal.
