In this day and age, our bodies are constantly bombarded with toxins from pollution, chemicals, alcohol, sugar, caffeine, processed foods and other unsavory sources. These “poisons” can build up and cause health problems. According to this line of thinking, the older we get, the longer these noxious substances have been in our bodies causing damage; hence the perceived need for us to flush toxins periodically and, in theory, restore internal vitality.
Dr. Brian Clement is the medical director of the Hippocrates Health Institute, which is one of the world’s oldest complementary health centers. Clement suggests that the toxic heavy metals and chemicals in our environment contribute to the vast majorities of cancers we see today. Further research suggests that these substances might also be responsible for debilitating diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease as well as Alzheimer’s. Many individuals mindset towards detoxing the body is focused on the food that we eat, but medical research suggests focusing a detox on extracting disease causing elements from the body. Detoxification can be controversial, and there is not right way to do it. However, after nearly 50 years Dr. Clements and the Hippocrates Health Institute have narrowed down what works and what’s safe.
The very first line of detoxification Dr. Clements suggests is an infrared sauna sessions. Skin is the largest organ and the deep sweat that occurs as a direct result from using an infrared sauna, eliminates chemicals and toxins
But not only will it help rid your body of heavy metals and chemicals, it will also help kill off viruses and other microbes-even cancerous cells, according to Dr. Clement. Use of an infrared sauna expedites the detoxification process by reducing the individuals toxic load.
