Skin Disorders Psoriasis, eczema and acne are very common

Submitted by Dr. Dana Gleeson

Psoriasis, eczema and acne are three very common skin disorders that tend to cause hardship for millions of people. These skin conditions affect the individual on many emotional levels including lowered self esteem and tend to result in a feeling of embarrassment.

Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.) has been shown to help reduce and heal the skin lesions involved in these conditions in several different ways. Far Infrared waves penetrate up to two inches into your skin thus reaching and affecting the much deeper layers. This increases blood circulation (vascularity) to your skin cells by increasing the formation of new capillaries which are additional blood vessels that replace damaged ones. This new blood supply carries an increased oxygen supply to the cells which allows an increase in transportation of fresh nutrients into the damaged skin areas promoting healing, and a rush of waste products out so the cells can function better.

Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.) also activates "ATP" (Adenosine Triphosphate) in the skin cells. ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. These increased levels of ATP will allow the skin cells to accept nutrients faster and dump waste products more readily. This causes a deep cleansing of your skin cells causing them to be renewed faster and healthier. ATP is also great for helping the cell processes kill the bacteria that cause acne.

Other effects of Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.) includes the purging of clogged pores, the release of deeply embedded impurities, the removal of dead skin cells and especially for acne sufferers, the shrinking of the sebaceous glands.

Leading research in the areas of psoriasis, eczema and acne relate many health issues as the cause of these skin disorders. These are mainly stress, a decreased immune system and being toxic. Thankfully the infrared treatment can cover them all. Besides affecting the skin cells directly as discussed above, Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.) elicits an increase in the body’s immune response by heating it up and creating an artificial fever which in turn will promote a natural healing response thus slowing down viral and bacterial growth. Now your body can function better to heal the skin.

For detoxification, because the far infrared waves penetrate so deeply into our skin, as the body heats up, they open the pores of our skin at their base so toxins are released with the sweat. This includes heavy metals, fat soluble toxins, sulphuric acid and much more. As we detoxify, the functioning of every system in our body improves including skin formation and clearing.

Lastly Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (F.I.R.S.T.) helps to greatly reduce your stress by providing you with a relaxed, warm and healing environment.

Imagine, your skin looking healthy and radiant and you feeling better in so many ways.
