Infrared Sauna and Anti-Aging
Since the beginning of recorded history humans have discussed and searched for methods to reversing the aging process. The quest to stop the aging process includes searching for an elusive fountain of youth, meditation, religious ceremonies, elixirs, potions, herbs, medical concoctions, lotions, and salves. In the 21st century scientific and medical research continues to not only explore but unlock clues to the aging process and how it can be stopped.
The science of DNA, mapping the genome and exploring the molecular level of life have opened doors of perception and understanding about the workings of life. Some old ideas are new again with a greater understanding of how things work. At the turn of the 20th century scientists and medical experts who believed in and tried oxygen therapy to fight aging were labelled as quacks and charlatans.
In the first quarter of the 21st century these ideas are being revisited and better understood. In a Research paper entitled, Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases telomere length and decreases immunosenescence in isolated blood cells: a prospective trial published on November 18, 2020, the effects of oxygen therapy and aging was examined.
This joint collaboration by over a dozen researchers and practitioners in Israel was determined to explore the theory that “At the cellular level, two key hallmarks of the aging process include telomere length (TL) shortening and cellular senescence.” The researchers were looking to see if increasing oxygen on the cellular level would affect not just the outward appearance of aging but reverse and keep in check molecular changes that cause aging. Although the study and its conclusions were meant to confirm that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) could reverse aging on the molecular level, its conclusions bode well for other theories about oxygen and aging.
The FIT Bodywrap Infrared Sauna and Increased Cellular Oxygenation
The infrared sauna has joined the fight against aging. It is effectively being used as a therapy to dilate the blood vessels which delivers more oxygen to the body. The FIT Bodywrap which is a customized personalize body enveloping sauna aids in the oxygenation process.
A traditional sauna which heats from the outside inward requires elevated temperatures. The infrared sauna uses rays that heat the body from the inside which allows it to work at a lower more tolerable temperature that is more effective. The sauna has long been recognized as being beneficial for wellbeing including heart health. The lower heat generated by a full body wrap infrared sauna delivers the beneficial results with less heat stress.
Like natural sunlight, the infrared sauna induces perspiration which along with being a skin detoxifier increases cellular oxygen absorption. As the scientific and medical community continues to unveil the antiaging secrets at the molecular level, infrared therapy is proving that it can improve circulation while carrying oxygen throughout the body and skin.
Anecdotal reviews from users of FIT Bodywrap infrared saunas from users say that the increased tissue oxygenation during a session improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles afterwards. The infrared all-encompassing body wrap sauna isn’t the fountain of youth, but it is proving to be a healthy addition to a vibrant, youthful life.
