Winter is almost over! Although this time of year is often the time we hibernate (if we’re lucky!) and eat heavier foods and more often, we don’t have to gain weight or feel sluggish. Even if you’re not eating the cleanest diet or exercising daily, there are a few simple things you can do that can keep you energized and feeling trim.
Far Infrared Sauna-
FIS saunas penetrate deeper than regular saunas, detoxing heavy metals and residual toxins that the liver and kidneys can’t process. The result is often feeling physically lighter, feeling more grounded and deeply relaxed. Sauna therapy allows the body to sweat while in parasympathetic nervous system mode, so toxins are being sweated out. The circulation/release of toxins, the regeneration of tissues, and heat all work together to improve lymphatic flow. It also helps cleanse the blood and burn calories. It’s painless and can be done in as little as 30-45 minutes.
Whole Body Vibration-
WBV has been proven to be an efficient way to detox in 10 minutes. Standing on a WBV platform contracts all of your muscles at once- these muscle contractions get lymph moving. This further prepares the body for detoxing in a sauna. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that rid the body of toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials. Lymph also contains white blood cells that are instrumental in fighting infection all throughout the body. Thus, a healthy lymphatic system is key to a healthy body, according to David Wolfe.
Dehydration is a leading cause of lymphatic system congestion. Drinking enough water keeps lymph moving. Our purified alkaline water has smaller molecules making it easier for the body to absorb and get hydrated. It also has various types of ionized minerals that help the blood circulate more efficiently. Water is crucial in helping the body detox and flush out the kidneys, but it’s alkaline water that can wash away toxins that may cause the body to develop various illnesses. The overall health of the body is dependent on how alkaline the body is. All of the water at our wellness center is purified alkaline water. We also sell it per gallon- bring your own container or purchase one of our 3 gallon BPA-free bottles!
