Integrative medicine recognizes detoxification as the first important step in restoring the body to a natural, balanced, healthy state. While the amazing human body naturally removes most of the harmful things we may encounter- the toxic load may accumulate over years of eating less-than-nutritious processed food, drinking alcohol, using personal care products or cleaning products full of chemicals, and exposure to pollutants. This burden of potentially harmful substances can take its toll on an otherwise healthy person.
National Integrated Health Associates has devoted an entire area to detoxification at the integrative medical and dental center in Washington, D.C. The Rejuvenation & Detoxification Spa has several state-of-the-art detoxification therapies that can be used to enhance your natural detoxification and promote health and overall wellbeing.
Far Infrared Sauna
The far infrared sauna uses infrared rays which penetrate deep, heating the muscular tissues and the internal organs and releasing toxins through the sweat glands and skin without burdening the liver and kidneys. Unlike traditional saunas, infrared radiation directly heats the occupant without heating the surrounding air. This can induce 2-3 times the sweat volume of a traditional sauna while operating at lower, more comfortable temperatures. The skin is the largest detox organ, and as the pores open the skin sheds dead cells, leaving the skin glowing and clean. Infrared rays may help relieve pain, stiff joints, tension, fatigue and help control weight.
