Infrared Sauna For Exercise Recovery While infrared saunas may be trendy for metabolic boost and clearer skin, some medical professionals and athletic trainers find the therapy helpful for athletic conditioning and speeding up recovery. Infrared Saunas are the Future of Addiction Recovery Treatment. We truly believe in the healing power of infrared saunas, and see the immense potential they have for speeding up addiction recovery and easing the uncomfortable symptoms of detox. This is why, at Scottsdale Recovery Center, we have state-of-the-art infrared sauna technology that. Like many new wellness trends, the infrared sauna promises a laundry list of health benefits — from weight loss and improved circulation to pain relief and the removal of toxins from the body.

Simply put, infrared saunas claim to make you hotter in every way (obviously, pun intended). Not only does an hour of intense sweating knock off some water weight, but infrared heat may actually help boost your metabolism. According to Dr.

Frank Lipman, who spoke to The Cut, just half an hour in an infrared sauna could help you burn up to 600 calories. (That’s like, one million squats or an. One of the biggest perks is the reported calorie-burning benefits-up to 600 calories per 30-minute session, according to Duncan. “Sitting in an infrared sauna causes the body’s core temperature to increase, increasing our heart and metabolic rate, which burns calories similar to the amount of a light jog,” says Berlingeri. These special saunas are believed to be more effective in moving toxins through the skin than steam saunas because in the far-infrared thermal system only 80 to 85 percent of the sweat is water. “Infrared saunas have the ability to penetrate the skin more deeply, increasing metabolic rate and burn off anywhere from 200 to 600 calories in a half-hour session, resulting in amazing detox. Signature Far Infrared Saunas from Sunlighten®­­ are the most effective far infrared saunas available.

Using Solocarbon heat as the active ingredient, Signature offers the maximum therapeutic results. Solocarbon is the only heater on the market clinically shown to raise core temperature, lower blood pressure and aid in weight loss. Mid Infrared Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs and speeds up the healing process.

To produce MIR, sauna heaters must be able to maintain a surface temperature of 210⁰C. Natural red and near-infrared light has also been found in clinical trials to have a therapeutic effect on the symptoms of painful skin conditions like psoriasis, herpes, and acne. Muscle Recovery & Physical Performance: This one is my wheelhouse and the biggest reason I swear by my daily, full-body red light therapy sessions.

When you train.

  • Lmao…these “doctors” are so smug and arrogant, unfortunately they are also incredibly ignorant, but they’ll never be convinced of it.

    No, of course there no such thing as heavy metal poisoning, toxic plastic residues, over burdened and failing kidneys, livers, and lymphatic systems.

    No such thing as toxins huh? I can’t tell if it’s their arrogance or their ignorance that defines them more…they seem to be equally full of both.

  • Thanks to Dr.Ayomede your product is incredible it was hard to believe how quickly I was able to remove and cured this virus that has been lingering over the years, I’ve tried a wide array of cream, acids, gels etc and nothing worked as well or as quickly as your product, I am very glad I found your mail, [email protected] WhatsApp +2349039179843

  • ‘where are we living on
    some kind of radio active dump’ umm yes, toxins come from cars,
    trucks, and trains by way of gas and particulates, you know the ones
    they are trying to filter out in the catalytic exhaust, and brake
    dust, rubber dust, not to mention home heating systems, and
    factories. We live in a polluted world and most of us are ignorant of
    it like this DR guy!!! Not that I have ever watch this program before
    and will hopefully not come across it again!! LOL

  • Why are they minimizing the great benefits of infrared sauna? My guess is that they couldn’t make any money for an endorsement or they just didn’t do their research on the subject. But for some reason, it seems like they went out of their way to make sure.people think that the benefits are overrated. WRONG! I gave this video a thumbs down. Do your homework next time Doctors!

  • Couldn’t you save money and sit in your car in the summer during the hottest part of the day for 30 minutes and get the same benefit?

  • They could have done a little background study on the benefits of photobiomodulation therapy before they came out sounding like opinionated dolts.

  • LED saunas are next to worthless. The only ones that are good are the 250W infared heat lamp bulbs, which use tungsten filaments. The best are the Philips, which are only like $10 at Lowes.

  • Awesome video. I took an “infrared” sauna today. But there was nothing RED in it! Only iron rods with foil backing. That’s just a regular electrical heater. Isn’t IR saunas supposed to have red light in it?? And what is that light? Other then regular bulbs shining through a red color.

  • Not surprisingly, the doctor who makes money from artificially improving peoples appearances, is not excited about people improving their appearance naturally.

  • As usual the “doctors” didn’t review any scientific studies on saunas, they just give their opinion which is pretty much conceited nonsense!

  • wtF did I just watch? An Infomercial? Sure looked like it when Dr. Hack n’ Slash in the blue shirt was babbling all his nonsense, trying to get me to spend a bazilion dollars on a sauna I don’t need! Ya think?

  • What the heck did Drew say about not being in an infrared sauna before???
    In 2011 both of them were in an infrared sauna and both spoke about the AMAZING things it can do for you. Drew was telling everyone in the video clip below how great infrared is for you.


  • That Dr. in the suit is dilusional! We are bombarded with toxins on a daily basis from air, water, soil, food etc! Geeez…and you call yourself a Dr?

  • Lol did that “Dr.” just deny the well-established biological phenomenon of BIO-ACCUMULATION? So despite mountains of evidence from human serum, urine, tissue biopsy measurements, he claims that toxic metals, plasticizers and othet ubiquitous toxicants cant accumulate in tissues…

  • Well the Doctors show just giving some illumination on Jade infrared therapy is a plus, because most human cattle sheep just think only a M.D. Pimp has truth they must follow so any shed light this show dares to upset the Big Pharmaceutical Industry Hospital’s of doom are selling…. People are conditioned like animals once a habit is formed they follow blindly obedient. This Doctors show often gives a glimpse at “Alternative Routes” for freedom from the Medical Pimps pushing DRUGS legaly. All infrared suana heat therapy improves blood circulation, helps to dilate blood veins & those little tiny capillary’s infrared heat & light from a red bathroom ceiling Heat Lamp encourages the body to grow new more extensive micro capillary’s for better blood circulation. All people who suffer with arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis if & when they 1st spend time in a infrared sauna I.F. Sauna will find they can have there muscle & joints stretched out more comfortably & research has proved those stretched muscles,joints, ligaments will hold that stretch longer & better & it hurt much less getting that physical therapy than doing it with a cold body. The problem is we the people are just conditioned idiots who do not research what can help us other than trust some M.D. Pimd Drug pusher to provide MONEY for their industry. Ask to see your M.D. Pimps MENU for any “symptom” they are going to prescribe a M.D. Licensed therapy for. Ask to see a Menu & then ask why in the fucking hell isn’t there any non Pharmaceutical choices. Like just 1 gallon of distilled water with 1 table spoon Himalayan or Celtic Sea salt to give them electrolytes, sodium, 87 minerals the body needs & can not find in Factory farm processed Mc.Dumpster fast food. People must become there bodies own mechanic & keep it running symptom free, if you must go to a M.D.Pimp so they can prescribe pharmaceutical man made chemical warfare on you, you failed to take care of your self & you are just cattle scum to be used to make them Money!

  • As usual, you can’t learn anything new or making sense from an MD.
    Their attraction is not knowledge but…looks of maybe one of them. Sad being a doc these days.

  • I’m 50 Been a Long Haul truck driver for 32 years I love how it reduces the inflammation in my legs and back when I get off a long trip. Been using for 6 years now one of the best purchases I’ve ever made in my life.

  • This dr is on steroids does his audience know that? He’s under pressure to look good for TV I guess. There’s no evidence that we don’t need to eliminate toxins???? Wtf did that quack say? LOL anyone that has done any cleanse of any kind knows that’s complete bull shit.

  • I usually like these guys but in this episode they only offer opinion and no science.
    There is actual science that proves some of the claims of detox and raising HGH in some research..Doctors?


  • Due to medico-legal concerns and the sheer number of questions I receive from these videos, I can no longer answer questions left in the comments. If you have a medical issue and would like more information, go to for other ways I can help you.

  • The great health benefits of sauna come from the high heat -like those listed in this video too, that’s the benefit of traditional saunas. But people with hard cintion can’t take that strain but the same goes for exercie, infrared sauna and steamroom, depenidin on the stress. And sauna heat can be regulated milder, and the steam can be regulated by how much water goes to the hot stones.
    Steamroom gives you more sweating. Sauna does that a bit less, but still a clear increase in detoxification by sweating there too. And while the inner organs like liver and kidneys do that the skin does detoxification too: some toxics leave more by sweating than by the inner organs. One study showed that especially mercury leaves your body by sweating. And certainly fat, like anybody having a hot bath have seen the oily layers in the water. They leave our body, yet oil the skin on their way.
    So the infrared sauna falls between these two in benefits. Sauna or steamroom depends how much you aim for that detoxification without that, the heat treatment of sauna gives more of those benefits for blood flow, heart conditions etc Besides, infrared is a new technology, so be careful with the baby hick-ups: just before watching this video I saw a video suggestion on the feed of the inner department fires increase in some area in the States, was it in Kansas area?
    The saunas and steamrooms have been used for 1000s of years, they are tested. And infrared going inside our skin… traditionally human body hasn’t been exposed to that. Are we sure it’s tested enough? I mean we went to coal industry without too much testing, tested atom bombs with human casualities. Now we are tested how to store the nuclear waste. Infrared of course meats our skin in the normal daylight but is it meant to go deep inside our skin is the body prepared for that? Some studies warn about an emf risk, electromagnetic field. But if the most reliable docs have long term evidence infrared is harmless, go for it.

  • lol, toxins “literally” pulled out from your cells. Leave it to a big boobed bimbo to feed you with all sorts of crap she doesn’t understand.

  • Personally I feel everything needs a infrared negative ionic low emitting portable sauna or any sauna period in their Homes. The Cultures who do sauna like the Finns are so much healthier and look better than the average American person.

  • If someone uses the term ‘toxins’ it means they are either a) uneducated or b) ignorant. If you press these ‘toxin’ people for more information such as “what specific ‘toxins’ are removed” or “what metabolic pathway/process is used in removal of these ‘toxins'” they will have no idea how to respond. Your liver and kidneys have plenty of ways to remove things the body has an excessive or dangerous amount of.

  • Far-infrared saunas are for babies. Finnish saunas or Turkish steam baths are the way to go, especially when you finish up with an ice cold bath or shower.

  • I am trying to go into the military and I need to squat real low would something like this help me squat lower to the ground like a good portable infrared sauna

  • It’s such BS. It does not remove ANY toxins. You don’t release toxins from sweating. Your liver and kidneys release them, this is the ONLY way your body releases toxins.

  • I have noticed for the past 15 yrs all people who own or sell far infrared saunas are red! I suppose they dont feel they need to limit the use. But I think it looks odd seeing such red people!

  • I love these pseudoscientists, reminds me of massage therapists, they always act like everything they do is detoxifying everything,

  • this is not just “not accurate” this is a scam. This woman is deliberately lying to people about said benefits, that’s not how the body works you can’t just quantify toxin elimination from adipose tissu and after extended research I can tell benefits seem to be similar and no conclusion can even be drawn yet, let alone made up numbers like these. Someone should report her to her local authorities for fraudulent and deceptive practices

  • TED Talk | Women are not small men | a paradigm shift in the science of nutrition | Stacy Sims |

  • 45 minutes of Sauna mixed with essiac tea mixed with 4 -5 days plant base diet mixed with about 90 ounces of water. The benefits over a year will be outstanding!!

  • Where as infrared heats the body. Sounds unnatural. The first thing that comes to mind is putting ur self in a microwave. That’s dose not sound natural lol

  • If you want to learn more about how saunas can benefit you then join the wildly popular sauna group here:

  • I want to see the study that shows their sauna removes 20% of toxins because that’s not how the body works. What are they classifying as “toxins” for that matter

  • Thanks for the informative video. It’s helpful for interested viewers to actually see the saunas in use. For those looking to learn more about Infrared saunas please visit our Sun Stream YT channel by clicking on the sun icon or visiting Sweat and be Well!

  • Did she really just say that at the end!!! Hahhah lol!! I was not expecting that!! I love infrared saunas!!! My gym has one and it really is exhilarating!!! Great video!!!

  • I think this is slightly misinformed; our skin is our biggest detoxification organ. We consume a horrendous amount of environmental toxins, sweating them out as part of a practitioner-supported detoxification protocol has incredible results. It’s a bit misleading to say ‘oh our kidneys and liver do this for us’ most people’s livers and kidneys are not functioning at full vitality due to the plethora of environmental toxins in their bodies.

    See a qualified practitioner, get diagnostics done, and detox with their support! No need to blindly believe me or random YouTube videos.:)

  • Took a steam sauna along time ago for like a half hour then a shower. Amazing how clean I felt after. kinda going to change to an infrared sauna at home so its benefit reaches my goals for buying one.

  • Awesome video. I took an “infrared” sauna today. But there was nothing RED in it! Only iron rods with foil backing. That’s just a regular electrical heater. Isn’t IR saunas supposed to have red light in it?? And what is that light? Other then regular bulbs shining through a red color.

  • this much percentage of toxins removal WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK. you know what happens when youre intoxicated? you die. i have never been in a sauna and im still alive feeling good.

  • I would love to see you get an expert on to speak on the problem of excess folic acid. From what I’ve seen it can cause damage to the renal system, and from there can impair the renal handling of thiamine, the deficiency of which has been implicated in both Metabolic Syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease, two of the modern scourges of our day.

  • Detoxing is not a thing. Eating at balanced diet and exorcise will keep you healthy. A sauna increases blood circulation and like exorcising is good for you. That’s it. You don’t need to bla bla bla detox.

  • Everything sounds good. But, with sauna is like with healthy food. If you want to see effect, you have to use it regulary, and respect the rules.

  • There is NO WAY any device can take the place of normal human movement. People, stop being lazy! Nature always trumps any hacks/shortcut.

  • You can’t shed toxins in a sauna, you’ll just dehydrate, sweat is 99% water. You’d have to lose 20 liters of water before you lose 1 gram of heavy metals. You can’t ged rid of toxins through your skin! There’s is no way any of this works, your internal organs are the responsable of taking toxic substances out of your body and they do a fine job as it is.

  • Great video about on an important topic. I’m looking at the topic of mould and detoxification using saunas have read the main papers, am wondering if you have any new studies on biotoxins and sauna relief?

  • While an infrared room is often called a sauna, it is not an accurate description in the true sense of the word. Since neither hot stones nor water are used, an infrared room does not meet the definition of a sauna. Instead, an infrared room generates heat from the infrared portion of the light spectrum. The whole point of an infrared room is that it delivers heat therapy withoutgetting extremely hot.

  • Annoying voice? I don’t hear no annoying voice at all. Maybe people commenting saying this, probably have something against the Infrared Sauna idea or something lol

  • Everyone has an infrared sauna inside their house… it’s called a f…ing OVEN! Infrared means HEAT. That gurl in the video just went inside a big oven with LED’s.

  • Taking niacin before you sauna will detoxify you 10 times faster! Learn the details at this Facebook group.

  • The skeptic in me is screaming bullshit…

    You’re not expending extra energy, therefore you’re not burning extra calories

    You’re not releasing toxins, because detoxification is bullshit pseudoscience. Your liver does infinitely more detoxing of “toxins” in your body than any wave length of light ever would.

    You’re basically paying to sit quietly and sweat. Protip… Buy a space heater, and sit in front of it in a quiet room. I just saved you boat loads of dough.

  • I don’t get saunas, personally. I know if you live in a wet cold, climate it can relieve that crappy feeling of always being damp and cold. But I grew up in Vegas, I could just sit in my car for a few minutes if I wanted to sweat.

  • I’m actually curious how does she know that this heated room removes 20% toxins vs 3% toxins in sauna? How would one even go measure that? How would your body distinguish heat from sauna vs heat from this room? This whole things sounds like fraud

  • Does somebody knows how are those infrared saunas? there are some weird claims about it’s heat bean from inside and that there are super effective without raising the temperature so much as the old ones!
    I believe they reach 140fº max (60 Cº)

  • unfortunately…
    the lawyers for 24 Fitness and other big box gyms, it seems
    set max temp at about 120
    if the dials actually show a real temp
    they could be ‘doctored’

    got a Plan B?

  • Dry sauna is a well-established health habit in central and northern Europe. I can say that the benefits are truly there. But yes, it won’t replace a proper diet and resistance exercise but just add-on to their benefits.

  • The objective of a sauna is to sweat out… why not incorporate both into one unit, heat sauna and infrared sauna! The ultimate detox.

  • Would love to see sauna use verses sunbathing in high heat(over 31C).
    The more I get through this video I’m convinced that tanning while it’s hot out is similar and it goes further to explain how great I feel in summer vs winter. I sweat buckets in full sun on hot days without any breeze. I can’t even keep going without a fan on me as the temperature gets closer to 100F in the full Texas sun.
