In an article in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, Lawrence Wilson, MD wrote, “If I were to single out one method to combat cancer, it is the sauna. It assists removal of chemical toxins and heavy metals, increases oxygenation, enhances the immune system, and reduces the radiation burden in the body. Furthermore, infrared saunas boost overall circulation. This brings nutrients, hormones, oxygen and other substances to all body tissues”.
The Cancer Defeated Organization reports that several clinical studies support Dr. Wilson’s position on the use of infrared heat as part of a cancer patient’s wellness regiment. They cite a clinical study published in the Journal of Cancer Science and Therapy in which scientists studied far infrared’s effects on human cancer cells in vitro and on cancer cells in mice. Far infrared therapy reduced tumor volumes 86% in 30 days. The tumor-suppressing effects were even seen without high temperatures, even as low as 77 degrees Fahrenheit.
In another study cited by this organization, researchers in Japan discovered that whole-body hyperthermia with far infrared strongly inhibited the growth of breast cancer tumors in mice without deleterious side effects. Researchers believe this therapy is promising for long-term studies of a noninvasive treatment of breast cancer.
StressBusters’ Client testimonial:
“Wow! I have such a low tolerance for heat, yet I was able to stay 45 minutes in this sauna. I have NEVER sweat this way in my life. Honestly, I had a moment of clarity and calm in there that I have not had in a while. I have stage IV cancer, four year old twins, and a law practice… it takes A LOT to make me relax and feel good these days. And this worked? Thank you so much… I’ll be back!” – Shaharzad T
StressBusters serves complimentary alkaline water (a separate charge at other facilities) during your Detox Infrared Sauna treatment.
Tap water and most bottled water have a positive ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential), which means that there is no antioxidant capacity– basically it doesn’t help the body in neutralizing acidity. The higher the pH the lower the ORP. Our water is between 95 and 10.5 ph, the highest available.
Medical studies show that alkaline ionic water has powerful antioxidant properties, better than vitamins A,C,E, beta carotene and selenium, which improves our body’s defense against disease. It has also been proven to reduce inflammation, a cause of both aging and disease/illness.
Alkaline Water enhances the delivery of nutrients to our cells. It neutralizes acidic foods thus making our body an alkaline environment. This also disarms free radicals and increases the oxygen levels in our body.
Antioxidants reduce cellular and DNA damage caused by free radicals. Dr. Robert Young, top Research Scientist and utmost authority on pH and alkaline water, stated that “the over-acidification of the body is the single underlying cause of all disease”.
