Steam Room Information


The only detoxification program that has proven successful in removing fat-stored toxins from the body is hyperthermia, or heat stress detoxification.

Heat stress can also remove calcium deposits from the blood vessels and break down scar tissue from their walls.

Hyperthermia can also remove chemicals such as DDE (a metabolite of DDT), PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), and dioxin from fat cells.

Hyperthermia or heat stress detoxification can have a beneficial effect on numerous body systems, including the cardiovascular, endocrine, neurological, neuromuscular, bronchopulmonary (lungs), blood, skin, and immune.

(Don't confuse this with the controversial and costly procedure of removing blood, heating it and returning it to the body).

This process may be combined with other programs but should be medically supervised; removal of certain toxins can result in potentially adverse effects, especially to the liver or kidneys.

The steam room aids in detoxification by creating artificial fever. it speeds up circulation and body cell metabolism thereby causing toxic wastes to be expelled through the skin.

For best results, wrap yourself in a clean towel and sit or recline in a hot, but not painfully hot, steam room. Gently massage any painful areas. Cool gradually after leaving the steam room.

To close your pores after a steam room visit, shower with cold water.

Drink plenty of purified water while in the steam room. A typical stay should not exceed from 5 to 10 minutes. (Optional: Take 500-1000 mg of niacin to dilate your capillaries, if you choose.)

A simple at-home procedure is to take a very warm (not hot) bath with Epsom salt and Baking soda. Put one half cup of each into the water and soak for 10-30 minutes.

CAUTION: Numerous germs can be spread in the steam room.

Therefore, avoid going into crowded steam rooms. Further, the steam room can have deleterious side effects for people with cardiac or respiratory problems.

If you have health problems, do not use the steam room without the express consent of your doctor.
