The most gentle way to rid yourself of toxins is as simple as heat and sweat! By eliminating toxins through your skin you are able to avoid integrating the toxins into your blood stream and increasing the burden to your kidneys and liver. It seems like just living a normal life can cause an accumulation toxins in our body!
Let's look at some common daily exposures
- Shower (chlorine)
- Makeup (Phthalates)
- Lipstick (lead)
- Clothes from the dry cleaners (perchloroethylene)
- Waterbottle (BPA)
- Diet soda (aspartame)
- New carpet (formaldehyde)
- Living close to a freeway (carbon and diesel)
- Air fresheners (paradichlorobenzene)
The heat from the sauna induces lypolysis (many toxins are stored in our fat cells) and the sweat increases the elimination pathway. This type of detoxification can take away a lot of energy from us... producing 16 oz of sweat utilizes the same energy as running 2 to 3 miles. Make sure to drink coconut water and take as many breaks as you need.
Who wouldn't want to feel great, have a clearer mind, and burn calories?!
