Steam Treatments

Purification and Detox with “Steam Therapy”
People are becoming increasingly aware of the wide variety of toxins that may be in their bodies, including herbicides, pesticides, food additives, air pollution, and household chemicals. When ingested, these chemicals can remain in the body for years, altering our metabolism, causing enzyme dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies, creating hormonal imbalances and lowering our threshold of resistance to chronic disease. Today, studies show that most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies! When our bodies exceed the limit that we can excrete, we begin to store these toxins.*

How steam helps you detoxify:

The skin is our body’s largest organ and is essential in eliminating impurities. As you sweat, your skins pores begin to open and built-up sebum and impurities move out. Dead skin cells are softened and exfoliated as new softer skin can emerge. Heat experienced during a steam treatment speeds up the chemical processes in the body, making it one of the most simple and comfortable ways to rid the body of accumulated toxins. As the pores open up and the millions of sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. Sweat contains almost the same elements of urine, which is why the skin is sometimes called the third kidney.

Regular sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of carcinogenic metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol. Sweating is such an effective de-toxifier that some physicians recommend home saunas to supplement kidney machines. Sweat also draws out lactic acid which causes stiff muscles and contributes to general fatigue.

How it works:

For centuries, the world’s great healers considered heating the body a potent and important technique for creating health and overcoming illness. Hippocrates, the founder of Western medicine more than two thousand years ago said, “Give me the power to create a fever, and I shall cure any disease.”The heat from a steam treatment raises your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. During a fever, the production of white blood cells is increased, as is the rate of their release into the blood stream. White blood cells are the primary agents of the immune system. As the generation of antibodies speeds up, so does the production of interferon, an anti-viral protein. In this manner, your body’s immune system is strengthened as it works to combat the fever.

At the same time, sweating helps eliminate toxins and waste products from the body. After detoxification, your immune system has less “housecleaning” to do and can focus on protecting your body from more serious health threats.
