Part 3: Benefits of a Sauna/Sweat

On Any Good Day

A sauna will:

Relieves stress

One may close the door to the world, or symbolically enter your mother’s belly

Relaxes body muscles

Soothes aches and pains in both muscles and in joints

Improves circulation

Releases endorphins, a tranquilizing effect

Blood vessels dilate, increased blood flow speeds to minor bruises or cuts

Eliminates lactic acid and other toxins

Sweating reduces levels of lead copper, zinc, nickel, mercury and chemicals, detoxes the body and promotes the regulatory system

Endocrine glands excrete as much in 15 minutes of sauna as the normally do in an entire day

Dead skin cells are replaced

Bacteria rinses out of epidermal layer

Gives “after sauna glow”

It puffs up tiny wrinkles and supports collagen

Bathes the skin in liquid that is rich in nutrients

Flushes body waste

Helps remove acne

Cleans skin deep not just the top

Helps resist eczema, athletes foot, pimples and blackheads

Brushing in conjunction with a sauna removes dry skin which has clogged sweat pores and oil passages

Impurities in the liver, kidneys, stomach, muscles, brain, and most other organs are flushed out by the faster flow of juices

Vitamin D is produced by healthier functioning skin and cell structure. Nutritional intake and sunshine interact to make D.

When the body is soothed the mind and the emotions follow
