In this video course I am going to share some detoxification protocols I use consistently in the sauna.
The skin is the largest detoxification organ of the body. The skin is the protective sheeting that surrounds the body and weighs approximately 10 lbs as well as being responsible for many endocrine, photochemical reactions, detoxification, protection and includes the associated organs and derivatives of the skin such as hair, nails, glands, intestines and specialized nerve endings.
The Principal Functions Of The Skin And Pores
The skin has many important and essential vital functions for keeping the physiological and biochemical conditions of the body in its optimal state.
- Regulates body temperature by sweating
- Prevents loss of essential body fluids
- Prevents penetration of parasitic and toxic substances
- Protection of the body from the elements such as the sun and radiation
- Excretes toxic substances by sweating out of each pore
- Mechanical support and beauty
- Immunological functions
- Sensory organs for light touch, deep pressure, heat, cold, socio-sexual and emotional sensations
- Vitamin D synthesis under the effect of sunlight and production of hormones
- Allows muscles to move and joints to stretch
- Allows fluids to move in and out of the skin
The Skin Is A Crucial Detoxification Organ
Study the “Skin” picture below, and take a deep look at how the skin is such a complex organ with all of its tubes, nerves, muscles, pores and other structures.
“The human skin is the outer covering of the body and is the largest organ of the integumentary system. The skin has up to seven layers of ectodermal tissue and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs.” – (source: Human Skin – Wikipedia)
Two Types Of Skin Pores
The human body has 2 different types of pores: Oil Pores and Sweat Pores.
Left Image: shows a close up with a magnifying glass of the skin and pores. Thousands of little holes in the skin to let fluids in and out.
Right Image: Shows a close up of an individual pore, or tube, in the skin. These pores can easily get plugged with chemicals, plastics, parasites, mold, blackheads, hardened skin and oils, etc.
Once the pore becomes clogged or plugged, the body cannot excrete fluids locally, so it will not be able to leach out the toxicity via the skin pores in the form of sweat.
- Sweat Pores: Are the anatomical structure of the skin of humans (and other mammals) used for secretion of sweat. You also have sweat pores all over your entire skin, and they are really tiny. Since you typically can’t see these pores with the naked eye, most people don’t give them much thought.
- Hair Follicles: Are the anatomical structures of the skin of humans (and other mammals) used for the secretion of sebum. Source: Wikipedia
- Oil Pores: These are also known as your hair follicles. You have these tiny hair follicles all over the exterior skin of the body. The skin on the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet do not have oil pores.
How Many “Sweat Glands” Does The Average Person Have?
The average sized person has about 2 – 4 million sweat glands or skin pores. The sweat glands are so important to keep flowing and open for vital health and wellness. Most people’s pores are clogged with toxins and or bacterial parasites and do not sweat or detox like they are supposed too.
When I use the FIR sauna, I start to sweat in about 5 – 7 minutes and at the 10-12 minutes mark, I am “River Sweating” or profusely sweating and this is where deeper detoxification occurs.
Each pore has a specific location on the skin, so as the pores can sweat out the toxicity in those corresponding areas.
Most people do not sweat at all until they are in the sauna for at least 20 minutes. In time as you clean the skin and open up the pores, the body will start to sweat quickly and easily.
Learning the “Skin Cleaning, Detoxification and Rejuvenation” courses are essential when learning and practicing detoxification protocols.
Look at how long sweat gland tubules are. If you do not easily sweat in the sauna, it is usually indicative of clogged pores.
There are 2 to 4 million sweat glands distributed all over our bodies. The majority of them are “eccrine” sweat glands, which are found in large numbers on the soles of the feet, the palms, the forehead and cheeks, and in the armpits.
Are Saunas Safe To Use Daily?
The sauna is very safe if you follow the rules of hydration. For “Detoxification” purposes I use the sauna 3-4 times a week, and will stay in for 60-90 minutes each session.
For “Maintenance” I go into the sauna once a week for 1 session of 60-90 minutes. I usually do the sauna on Sundays – my Spa Day :))
Beginners want to see how it takes for the first drip of sweat, and how long it took for your body to “River Sweat”. 30-60 minutes is usually a good time frame to start.
If you are dehydrated and go into the sauna, it can cause overheating of the body and cause a lot of stress to the cells, if the body cannot sweat. Saunas can be very dangerous if you are “NOT” well hydrated with mineralized water before you get in.
When we sweat in the sauna we will sweat out a lot of the body minerals and electrolytes etc.
So, it is very important to follow the mineralization protocols in your water to add back to the body conductive minerals that are lost while sweating. Before I get into the sauna I make sure I am well hydrated, with electrolytes and mineralized clean water, by drinking at least 32 oz of distilled water with minerals to raise my water capacity.
We are going to be sweating up to 1-5 lbs of fluid, so it is vital to add the electrolytes and minerals back into the water, and back into the body.
Once you stop sweating in the sauna, it usually means your body is getting dry or dehydrated and needs more water.
Most times I will drink another 64 oz of the same recipe of minerals and lemon, while in the sauna for up to 60-90 minutes.
After I am out of the sauna, I still want to further hydrate myself with another 32 oz of mineralized water. Dirty water coming out of the skin and pores while profusely sweating, and mineralized clean water going back into my body to rehydrate me again.
If you do sweat easily in the sauna, it is indicative of clogged pores. To sweat proficiently as a detox therapy I like to stay in the sauna for up to 40-60 minutes after I have started to sweat a lot in the sauna.
It used to take me about 20-25 minutes to really sweat in the sauna when my pores were more plugged up. Now, I start sweating in 5-7 minutes and profusely sweating in 8-10 minutes.
