Bernie is right. It only clears the blood and extracellular space, like
DMPS and DMSA, but if an adult sweats out a quart or two of sweat a day it
is the same as using 100-200 mg DMSA every 4 hours that day.
It clears a lot of other things, too, and it turns out sweat is the major
route nickel takes on its way out of the body.
REGULAR saunas are excellent for nickel and somewhat helpful for
mercury. I don't know about the other metals.
Infrared saunas are dangerous and harmful for mercury toxic people and
should not be used. There is an incredible amount of hype about using
them for detox nowadays, so if the doc is talking about infrared
sauna, there is no legitimate technical basis behind his suggestions.
"The Far Infrared Sauna came into use about 45 years ago. It penetrates the skin, which adds another dimension to the sauna experience and appears to enhance detoxification. However, these saunas, if they are truly far infrared, emit damaging electromagnetic radiation to some extent. Also, the frequencies are not the best, in our view. We are not happy with most of these that we test. Therefore, we donít recommend the far infrared or Far-Infrared-Sauna sauna very much at this time."
planning to get something like that to my house some day,
or regular heat sauna.
"In conclusion, we much prefer the near infrared design, although in fairness, both types are truly wonderful healing devices fit hey are well-designed and the bather understands how to use them. Perhaps this helps to explain why our feedback is that the near infrared lamp sauna is a far more effective design."
I'm in the process of building a unit I can use in the small bathroom I have downstairs. I purchased the far-infrared bulbs from Lowes along with all the other supplies. I might get a set of the near-infrared bulbs and just rotate between the two.
I'll post a picture of what I built as soon as my drill charges up so I can drill four holes to mount the bulbs. I kind of followed a do-it-yourself that was on Mercola.com.
I have both and find the Far-Infrared-Sauna sauna far more effective. I don't know where this site is collecting its questionable info. If someone can offer another source to corroborate these claims I might be more interested. Otherwise, I think it's baloney.
But I'll agree with V that your best technique (and most cost efficient) is an au natural one - work up a good sweat in the sun and get the full spectrum. Of course not everyone has the luxury of perpetual sunshine in a warm climate - in which case I say go build an Far-Infrared-Sauna sauna. You'll love it.
But how? I'd think materials alone would cost more than a portable unit.
mex culture, which most americans oblivious to mexicans social structure - don't know they have no social security for retirees, rather , they have large families with understanding that children give money to their parents in the parents old age, with understanding that when they themselves get old, their children will send them money. making parents happy can mean children going to usa if necessary or if option is present.
I live in Vancouver, WA. Not much sun around here. The handful of sunny days we get seem to always get ruined by chemtrails. Like today for example. It started out beautiful. By 3:00 p.m. the sky was covered with chemtrails that had spread out for miles blocking the sun.
