Hi i am planning on doing a 10-15 day water fast and have been reading alot of the posts on this forum gathering information. There may be a post that i haven't read regarding this issue so i apoligize if this has already been addressed. I have an infared sauna and was wondering if this is ok to do while on the water fast. I don't want to become dehydrated but want to get as many toxins out as possible during this time. I'm thinking it may be benefitial in helping with syptoms of fasting... Thanks for all your time and information.
I used my IRSauna on my last 30 day fast, but I don't think I would do it again for a couple of reasons.
1.) You need to be hydrated when fasting to flush the toxins. The IRSauna requires a lot of water on it's own to stay hydrated, so I think it hinders the benefits of the fast. I saw signs of dehydration during the fast this time that I haven't felt on other fasts not using the Sauna.
2.) My skin seemed drier this time also. Toward the end I acually drew blood trying to satisfy an itch on my ankle.
Not an expert on these matters, but that's my opinion. Seperately they are both good for detoxing, but together it's too much. You can only consume so much water.
Good luck with your fast.
