Detoxing Using an Infrared Sauna
As you might know, sweating is a great way to burn calories and rid your body of unwanted toxins. But how do you sweat when you’re injured, or unable to exercise?
I like to sweat in an infrared sauna. Infrared saunas help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals.
If you do not own your own infrared sauna, identify a spa or facility in your area
that offers the use of their infrared sauna on a per-minute basis, or with a weekly
membership. Spend up to 45 minutes per day in the infrared sauna, up to 140°.
If you do not have or can not locate an infrared sauna, use any other sauna, or even a
steam room. Although the infrared sauna is most effective for detox, the most vital
piece of this practice is that you are sweating for 20-45 minutes per day.

Roundup weedkiller could be pulled from British shelves after a US court ruled the chemical contributed to a man’s terminal cancer.
Homebase, one of the UK’s largest DIY retailers, was the first retailer to announce it is reviewing the sale of Roundup and Ranger Pro in the wake of the landmark case in California, and others are expected to follow.
“We have confirmed that we will be reviewing our range of weedkiller products,” a spokesperson for Homebase said, while B&Q had already started a broader review of garden products.
Dewayne Johnson was awarded $289m (£226m) on Friday by a state jury, who found manufacturer Monsanto had failed to adequately warn of the risks of using Roundup, which contains the world’s most widely-used herbicide, glyphosate. The school groundsman’s lawyers said he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2014, having used Roundup and a similar Monsanto product, Ranger Pro, in large quantities while working.
The jury also found that company officials acted with “malice and oppression” in their selling of the product despite its risks being known.
Monsanto vice president Scott Partridge said hundreds of studies showed the herbicide does not cause cancer and said the company would appeal the verdict to “vigorously defend this product”.
He told the Press Association: “Roundup has been safe for four decades and will continue to be safe. There is no credible scientific evidence that demonstrates otherwise.
“It is completely and totally safe and the public should not be concerned about this verdict, it is one that we will work through the legal process to see if we can get the right result. The science is crystal clear.”
Many parents were shocked to learn that a Missouri jury recently ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $72 million to the family of Jacqueline Fox, whose death by ovarian cancer was linked to her daily use of talcum-based Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products. You know the product—that sweet baby scent, the soft puff of powder.
For decades, Fox used these talc powders on her most sensitive body parts. And for decades, according to the case, Johnson & Johnson knew about the cancer link but failed to warn consumers.
This might seem shocking. Millions of us have put these products on our bodies or our babies’ butts with no idea of the possible health risk.
But it’s actually not surprising. The fact is, many personal care products on store shelves—products we lather in our hair, rub on our skin, and put in our babies’ bathtubs—contain chemicals with known links to health problems, with no warnings at all to consumers.
Companies in the U.S. are allowed to put ingredients into personal care products with no required safety testing, and without disclosing all the ingredients.
