Health Benefits of Far Infrared Sauna Heat
A recent article in InTouch Weekly claims The Biggest Loser winner, Rachel Frederickson, enlisted the use of a far infrared sauna to melt off those prized pounds before the finale’s final weigh in.
The way this works is the far infrared sauna raises the body’s core temperature which in turn raises the heartbeat and burns calories. Dr. Oz is a big proponent of the infrared sauna heat for weight loss. He explains the weight loss benefits of the far infrared sauna on the Oprah Show.

How Does Far Infrared Sauna Heat Work?
The sauna’s infrared radiation utilizes the same electromagnetic spectrum that’s emitted from the the sun without the UV component. The sauna’s infrared radiation penetrates the skin from 1.5 to 3.5 inches heating blood vessels and capillaries to help release toxins through sweat.
The electromagnetic heat emitted from the far infrared sauna directly heats the user so the sauna’s temperature usually doesn’t rise above 130°F. Reportedly, because infrared radiation therapy heats the body from the inside, 17% more toxins are released into the blood stream than when using a traditional sauna.
