Health benefit claims

A study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis showed a reduction in pain, stiffness and fatigue during infrared sauna therapy, but this could have been due only to chance (i.e. not the sauna) as "these did not reach statistical significance."[1]

Another benefit claim is that since saunas increase perspiration, they purportedly liberate undisclosed "toxins." Saunas have been recommended for this ostensible reason to people who are told they have high levels of "toxicity" in their body, although the supposed, offending toxins are rarely identified. Saunas may be useful to those who cannot sweat from exercise due to their health problems, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Only if the sauna uses far-infrared technology, the sauna might be more tolerated by patients who don't tolerate the high temperatures of the standard humid hot air saunas. This is because far-infrared rays do not heat the air inside the sauna, but they still heat the body. However, most infrared saunas in the market do not use the expensive far-infrared panels, which can be touched because they remain always cold, but much cheaper low and medium-infrared heaters, which remain very hot when used and also heat the air of the sauna.

On the other hand, hyperthermia generated by infrared saunas may kill or weaken tumor cells, and is controlled to limit effects on healthy cells. Tumor cells, with a disorganized and compact vascular structure, have difficulty dissipating heat. Hyperthermia may therefore cause cancerous cells to undergo apoptosis in direct response to applied heat, while healthy tissues can more easily maintain a normal temperature. Even if the cancerous cells do not die outright, they may become more susceptible to ionizing radiation therapy or to certain chemotherapy drugs, which may allow such therapy to be given in smaller doses.

LED Anti-Acne and Anti-Aging

Anti-Aging Effects Of L.E.D.

Therapy  Collagen and elastin are the buzz words in any spa on planet earth. As we age, tan, smoke, wash our face and live within the confines of gravity, they breakdown and we see wrinkles, creases and folds in skin that was once taut. LED therapy can reverse the appearance of aging skin, enlarged pores and crow’s feet with a light wave that penetrates far beneath the surface of our skin without causing any damage. It also pulls collagen to the surface to fill-in lines and wrinkles.

The Cosmetic Benefits Of LED Light Therapy 
· Minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow`s feet 
· Clears blemishes and minimizes pores 
· Improves the appearance of skin tone and texture
· Restores skin’s natural collagen production
· Reduces melanin that causes brown spots
· Reduces the effects of sun-damaged skin
· Increases circulation and moisture
· Reduces skin degradation, redness and flushing
· Decreases scarring, redness, dry patches, itching and sensitivity caused by eczema
· Stimulates and activates naturally occurring metabolic function and nutritional elements .

Health Benefits of LED Light Therapy 
Studies show that skin exposed to LED light wavelengths grows 150-200% faster. Therefore, as LED therapy improves the cosmetic appearance of skin, it also promotes the healing of wounds, scars and burns. This happens because skin has a high blood and water content, so it quickly absorbs red light to produce enough energy to cause a healing response from the body.

Medical Grade Vitamin D Light Therapy

Depression and stress have a tendency to intermingle, making it difficult to put your finger on the exact reason why you feel depressed or stressed.  You may even feel that it’s not one thing that’s getting you down.  It’s everything, and you just can’t seem to kick a consistent feeling of gloom?   You can probably categorize those feelings as depression.  

For some people that feeling of gloom and depression is called SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder. SAD is a depression disorder associated with light deprivation during the winter months.  Seasonal Affective Disorder is caused by a melatonin imbalance initiated by a lack of exposure to sunlight.  SAD sufferers are not the only ones feeling stress, depression and the negative health affects caused by a lack of appropriate sunlight.  We are all feeling its impact.  Our lifestyles limit our exposure to sunlight.  You naturally get
vitamin D from sunlight, and a lack of exposure to sunlight is the main cause of vitamin D deficiency. read more...
