Sauna Weight Loss: You’re NOT Fat, Your Tired & Stressed

There are many causes of weight gain like stress, lack of sleep, inactivity, dehydration, depression, medications, hormonal changes and environmental toxins but an infrared sauna can be good for weight loss by eliminating these harmful environmental and metabolic toxins from our bodies through the skin.  An infrared sauna can aid in your home weight loss goals by eliminating the body’s toxic load, decreasing cortisol production and eliminating cellular waste through the skin.  Let’s talk about stress.

Obesity and Sleep: The Early Origins of Disease

High levels of stress puts your body into survival mode causing the your body to produce high amounts of Cortisol, “the stress hormone”  which increases appetite.  As our stress levels increase so do our reach for fatty, sugary or salty comfort foods creating the perfect breeding ground for weight gain which can contribute to heart disease, cancer, headaches, ulcers, digestive disturbances, backaches and many other conditions.  You can mitigate stress through deep breathing, meditation, infrared sauna sessions that work on the parasympathetic nervous system, regular exercise and healthy food choices are all positive lifestyle changes that can counter-balance stress and fight back those unwanted pounds.

Link between lack of sleep & obesity

Lack of Sleep is an emerging contributor to obesity in America and just like stress can increase cortisol production.  Staying up late to watch your favorite late night show may be contributing to that waist line as exposure to food and beverage advertising can influence what you eat as well as increasing your daily caloric intake and environmental toxins.  Increased weight contributes to Sleep Apnea which compounds the problem because you get less restful sleep further increasing cortisol production and contributing to weight gain.   When your body is sleep deprived changes in your hormone levels increase hunger and appetite making you not feel as full after eating.
You may be doing all the right things like exercising, eating right then all your efforts are negated staying up all night binge watching your favorite shows.  Studies show that sleep deprivation makes us more akin to choose junk food and limits our ability to practice portion control.

  3. Send me information on the best one and type of wood u should get

    1. Hi Alice,

      Thank you for your interest in  In my experience, Canadian Hemlock is a superior wood for the infrared sauna application.  We do not introduce any steam or water into the environment other than our own sweat and our primary focus is detoxification.  Hemlock wood has a higher crushing strength than cedar and is hypoallergenic.

      What is the best wood choice when purchasing an infrared sauna?  Basswood? Cedar? Or Hemlock?
      We don’t use steam in an infrared sauna because we would release the impurities of the water into the air and our primary focus is detoxification so we don’t want to be breathing those in.  Is there a particular sauna you are interested in?  Is there a particular health benefit you are looking to achieve?  Please let me know how I may be of assistance.

      In Good Health,
