IN AGES PAST . . .
Looking back to our forefathers' days and to the North American Indians, their most effective therapy against disease was the "Sweat Lodge". Why? Because it works.
The use of heat for detoxification is not a new practice. Dr. Veronica Butler, medical co-director at The Raj, a health center based on principles of Ayurveda, recommends herbalized steam baths (called swedenas) to clients as part of the ancient Ayurvedic purification treatment, known as panchakarma.
In Finland, research is being done on the use of sweat therapy in the treatment of people who are chemically dependent. The purifying effects of perspiration could also be behind claims that steam treatments can help cure or control such ailments as acne and arthritis.
Eating a balanced diet supplemented with high quality nutritional supplements and drinking alkaline water should be your first steps to maintaining good health. But if "vital" health is your goal, then a good sweat everyday will help keep you healthy and your lymph nodes (a major part of your immune system) in top shape.
Many people try to sweat by working out, only to feel the worse for it afterward. Why? Because their skin pores and sweat glands are blocked, the lactic acid created from the workout cannot be eliminated properly as nature intended.
WHY IS SWEATING SO IMPORTANT?
Every day we are exposed to thousands of toxic chemicals and pollutants in our atmosphere, water, food, and soil. These pollutants affect us in a variety of ways, including, decreased immune function, neurotoxicity, hormonal dysfunction, psychological disturbances, and cancer.
The skin is the largest detoxification organ of the human body. In a healthy person 30% of the body's toxic waste is excreted through the skin. When the skin becomes dehydrated and the pores blocked, the immune system comes under major attack. When this happens waste backs up into the tissues, organs, blood stream, and lymph nodes. Today, because of modern lifestyles, most people show signs of lymph node stress - a condition called “sand bagging”.
Sand Bagging is when the lymph nodes and lymph channels become cemented. This can be a critical problem for those suffering from or trying to prevent illness. When your skin and lymph system are blocked, your body tissues and fluids become a storage shed for some of the body's most destructive poisons. These toxic destructive acids will literally accelerate the process of aging and disease. We see this in more critical cases, for example in a tumor.
A tumor is a storage shed of acid and toxic waste. It is what the body creates to concentrate and isolate toxins when the toxins are not being removed naturally.
How can we successfully cleanse when one of our largest organs (our skin) is malfunctioning? This is why the ill have such difficulty regaining good health. The main difference between feeling young or old, healthy or sick, is whether you are toxic or not. The first step to great health is proper detoxification. The most passive and effective way to accomplish this is through the Aroma Spa®.
Detoxification occurs through the body's natural process of eliminating or neutralizing these toxins via the liver, the kidneys, the urine, the feces, exhalation, and perspiration. "Detoxification Therapy" accelerates this process to help rid the body of chemicals and pollutants and can facilitate a return to health.
Hyperthermia is the raising of body temperature above its normal level of 98.6o F (37oC). Also known as stress detoxification, hyperthermia is one of the most effective detoxifying treatments available. Most people do not have sufficient energy reserves (oxygen and hydrogen) to create a proper fever to burn off illness, so external methods of raising the body's temperature to facilitate detoxification are required.
Beauty and health are more than skin deep. Experience the joy of vital health as you experience Aroma Spa® on a regular basis. You deserve to look and feel great. Daily detoxification through spa therapy will help you internally while you cleanse the skin externally.
BENEFITS OF STEAM DETOXIFICATION
Heat speeds up the chemical processes in the body, making steam bathing one of the simplest and most comfortable ways to rid the body of accumulated toxins. As the pores open up and millions of sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. Sweat contains almost the same elements as urine, and for this reason, the skin is sometimes called the third kidney. It is estimated that as much as 30% of bodily wastes are eliminated by way of perspiration.
According to Zane Gard, M.D. and Erma Brown, P.H.N., hyperthermia (heat stress detoxification) is the only detoxification program that has proven successful in removing fat-stored toxins from the body. “Heat stress,” says Dr. Gard, “can also remove calcium deposits from the blood vessels and break down scar tissue from their walls.”
Other studies demonstrate that hyperthermia can remove chemicals such as DDE (a metabolite of DDT), PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), and dioxin from fat cells. However, more than just the common metabolic waste products are eliminated through the sweat process. Natural health practitioners often notice that when heavy smokers get a steam bath or a body wrap (where the body 'simmers' for up to 45 minutes under hot covers), they will leave a yellow residue on the towels.
Lastly, steam bathing produces powerful therapeutic effects simply by increasing circulation. The bloodstream plays a crucial role in the maintenance of health as the carrier of the rebuilding forces (nutrients) to all parts of the body.
A COMPARISON - STEAM vs. DRY SAUNA
The powerful cleansing and healing process of hyperthermia takes place when the body core temperature reaches between 101 - 103oF. With steam, this is accomplished more quickly and more effectively than in a dry heat or infrared sauna. It only requires 10 to 15 minutes, while relaxing in the aromatic steam of your AromaSpa®, to reach goal temperature ranges.
In a 1989 study, researchers concluded that the desired higher heat stress ratings were attained with the use of humid heat rather than dry heat. As the person's temperature begins to rise, the body's natural response is to perspire so that the evaporation of the perspiration will cool the body.
Heat loss by evaporation in a dry sauna is considerably greater than in a humid sauna or steam room because in a steam bath, evaporation is not possible and therefore allows little or no loss of valuable body heat. The higher moisture level actually causes condensation on the body to become the primary heat transfer mechanism additionally heating the body.
The effectiveness of steam hyperthermia treatments directly correlates with the ability to eliminate evaporation heat loss during treatments. Your AromaSpa® will cause you to perspire heavily, expelling toxins for a naturally cleaner, healthier you!
