Our Clearlight True WaveTM is full spectrum infrared. Far, mid, and near infrared panels that surround you on all sides and even your front—they heat your body, detoxify you, boost your immune system, and calm your nervous system. Read the science on how full spectrum infrared rays affect your body by clicking the links below.
Far Infrared Rays
Far infrared has the longest frequency and can penetrate deep into human tissue. Far infrared waves increase the body’s core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat from the cellular level of the skin where many toxins are housed. This is optimal for detoxification, weight loss, and blood pressure reduction. It penetrates the fat cells, causing vasodilation, where the fat cells vibrate to expel toxins aiding in weight-loss.
Mid Infrared Rays
Mid infrared wavelengths are mid-range and are beneficial for increasing circulation that mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout. Regular infrared sauna use in the mid infrared range, has been shown to significantly stimulate blood flow, even after the sauna session is completed. Increasing circulation and releasing oxygen to reach injured areas.
Near Infrared Rays
Near infrared rays have a shorter frequency range with the ability to penetrate the epidermis layer of the skin making it sweat promoting healing and revitalization.
Infrared heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.
Dr. Sara Gottfried, Harvard and MIT educated M.D., Scientist and Author, writes in her new book, Younger: The Breakthrough Program to Reset Your Genes / Reverse Aging / & Turn Back the Clock 10 Years:
“Saunas reset DNA” and …
“Regular sessions in a sauna give the body a shock of heat, which appears to help reset its fine-tuning mechanisms, including DNA”.
“A sauna activates the longevity gene “FOXO3”, which turns on genes for stress resilience, production of disease-fighting antioxidants, maintenance of proteins (to keep muscles strong), DNA repair (prevents mutations). Sitting in a sauna for 20 minutes turns on the FOX03 longevity gene”.
“...using a sauna is handy as we get older because it seems to boost exactly the genes that become less effective with age”.
“…studies show when you make more FOXO3 (because you are genetically predisposed to do so or because you enjoy a regular session in the sauna), you triple your chance of living to 100. Even if you have a sauna only once every couple of months, your heart will benefit.”
Dr. Gottfried has a Clearlight™ “Sanctuary 3” infrared sauna.
There are many more research studies covering heart disease, pain relief, arthritis, depression, blood pressure and others that can be found on Clearlight’s™ website:
Sauna Weight Loss Studies
A two-phase, sauna weight loss study conducted by Binghamton University in New York revealed that an increase in core body temperature resulted in a decrease in body fat. It concluded that people who used a ClearlightTM infrared sauna three times a week for 30 minutes per session dropped an average of 4 percent body fat over a four-month period. For a 175-pound man, that represents a weight reduction of seven pounds.
Participants who experienced infrared sauna weight loss did not change their exercise or diet patterns during the study. Control groups in the study who did not use the Clearlight Sauna® showed no drop in weight. The study findings illustrate the significant boost that infrared therapy provides for our weight loss goals.
In contrast, an infrared sauna session heats your body directly raising your core body temperature as your body absorbs the infrared heat. This boosts your cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune systems creating a fat based sweat to help your body detox. Using an infrared sauna helps to eliminate toxins while energizing your body in a safe, comfortable way.
