The season of serious holiday eating is upon us – just think of all the Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas cookies, and New Year’s Day junk food. For many of us, this is a time to eat, drink and be merry. However, for those who suffer from food allergies and food intolerance, eating the wrong dish can result in serious inflammation of the body, and a host of related issues, from chronic acid reflux to life-threatening anaphylactic reactions.
But it’s not just those who are visibly allergic or intolerant who are suffering from food inflammation. According to Conscious Cleanse authors Jo Schaalman and Jules Peláez, many of us suffer daily from food intolerance that we don’t even know about! Furthermore, an increasing amount of research is showing the Standard American Diet full of inflammatory foods, which can lead to a host of health problems.
While those who suffer from food allergies typically present a more immediate reaction to the effects of these inflammatory foods with rashes, mucus buildup, vomiting, and narrowed airways, the long-term “quiet” effects of inflammatory foods has been attributed to ailments like chronic intestinal discomfort and arthritis to increased risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and the like.
If you are suffering from chronic food-related issues and are on track to get healthier through diet (including eating more anti-inflammatory foods), adding Sunlighten Infrared Saunas to the mix can help you achieve faster results through help with:
Detoxification: Sunlighten sauna detox will provide a truly deep, productive sweat where toxins reside – at the cellular level. Removing these toxins through a natural process may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness and increase overall health and vitality.
Skin Purification: Sunlighten infrared saunas help rejuvenate the skin, while detoxifying, providing two benefits in one! A study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy showed significant improvements in skin appearance after just 12 weeks of sauna skin therapy using near-infrared technology. Participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity, and firmness.1
Relaxation: When your body is under a constant barrage of food stressors, your immune system is always working to keep your body healthy. With this in mind, it’s easy to see how your body needs the opportunity to experience deep relaxation and stress reduction – additional benefits of Sunlighten saunas.
Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including weakening of the immune system, which may already be under attack by inflammatory foods.
Whether you plan to make moderate or major changes to your diet after the holidays, let Sunlighten partner with you on your personal path to wellness. Connect with our Customer Service Team at 877-292-0020 for more information about how we can help.
