My skin was dry and cracking and lotion alone wasn’t doing the job. Ihave been a regular user of this Planet Beach service for the last several weeks and now my hands are smooth, moisturized andmore youthful!Janie P., Irvine, CAHealth benefit claimsIt has been claimed by alternative medicine that the human body is oxygen deprived, and so that more oxygen will remove "toxins" andeven cure cancer.[7] Proponents claim this practice is not only safe, but enhances health and well-being, including strengtheningthe immune system, enhancing concentration, reducing stress, increasing energy and alertness, lessening the effects of hangovers,headaches, and sinus problems, and generally relaxing the body.[5] It has also been alleged to help with altitude sickness. However, nolong-term, well-controlled scientific studies have confirmed any of the proponents claims.[5] Furthermore, the human body is adapted to21 percent oxygen, and the blood exiting the lungs already has about 97 percent of the oxygen that it could carry bound to hemoglobin.Having a higher oxygen fraction in the lungs serves no purpose, and may actually be detrimental. [7]The medical profession warns that individuals with respiratory diseases such as asthma and emphysema should not inhale too muchoxygen.[5] Higher than normal oxygen partial pressurecan also indirectly cause carbon dioxide narcosis in patients with chronicobstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).[8] The FDA warns that some flavoring methods use oils, which if used improperly, and dropletsare inhaled, might contribute to an inflammation of the lungs. Some oxygen bar companies offer safe water-based aromas for flavoringin order to maintain compliance and stay within FDA guidelines.[5]Also, concentrated oxygen is a flame accelerant which should be kept away from cigarettes and other sources of ignition. Oxygen mayalso cause serious side effects at excessive doses. Although the effects of oxygen toxicity at atmospheric pressure can cause lungdamage,[9] the low fraction of oxygen (30–40%)[citation needed] and relatively brief exposures make pulmonary toxicityunlikely.[10] Nevertheless, due caution should be exercised when consuming oxygen. In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive
  • 13. publishes guidance on equipment (including tubing) and on staff training, as well as warning on potential hazards, and makes severalrecommendations to ensure safe practice, principally to minimise fire risks.[11]Another concern is the improper maintenance of oxygen equipment. Some oxygen concentrators use clay filters which cause micro-organisms to grow creating an additional danger that can cause lung infections.[12] O2 Planet offers a variety of infrared saunas, (infrared is a form of oxygenation), in all prices ranges.1) Oxygen Detoxification Station(TM) Infrared, Activated Oxygen/O3 steam, Photon light therapy, Self cleaning and disinfecting, mp3 and video inlets.

Yes, its true. Infrared Saunas provide all of the benefits a regular 30 minute jogging session would.For those of us that run for health reasons andbelieve it to be a necessary evil, you’re in luck.Meet the Infrared Sauna. For those of you who aren’t familiar with them, infrared saunas are the new up-and-coming player in the sauna arena and they are becoming quite popular inthe United States. Not only do they provide the calming and relaxing atmosphere traditional saunas have, they emulate the act of exercising!Think for a moment of what changes happenin our bodies when we exercise. Blood ispumped through our bodies faster, and ourheart becomes stronger because of it.Nutrients are carried to needed tissues. Fat ismobilized and burned. We produce sweat thatnot only cools our bodies, but nourishes ourskin and neutralizes bacteria. And our mentalwell-being is elevated as a result of a goodhard exercise session.What does this have to do withInfrared Saunas?
  • 15. Well, in short, absolutely everything. When ourbodies are involved in a sauna session, a lot ofthe same changes happen in our body, as ifwe were busy exercising. You see, the heatprovided by a FAR Infrared Sauna penetratesthe skin up to 5 cm, which heats tissue wellbelow the subcutaneous areas beneath theskin. A 10-20 minute session is known toincrease heart rate by 50%-75%. This is thesame as if you were involved in a light jog orbrisk walk. The rays emitted by the infraredsauna also cause our blood vessels to dilate,and blood flow to the skin is increased by over50%. The increased blood flow to the skinprovides much needed nutrients toundernourished skin cells, therefore improvingyour overall complexion. Not only does ourskin receive all these important nutrients, theinfrared sauna promotes sweat, and lots of it!You see, sweat is very important, as itemulsifies fat molecules in our subcutaneoustissue much more efficient than water. It alsoplays a very important role in cleaning ourskin, the largest organ in our body. The sweatproduced by an infrared sauna opens ourpores and flushes out many detoxifying agentsand impurities. Many times the towel of asmoker will turn yellow after a good saunasession, as a result of the skin removing toxinsfrom the body.So, the next time you’re contemplating goingon a jog and don’t feel like expending theenergy, visit your local spa and see what allthe fuss is about. Infrared Saunas really doprovide a well-rounded workout, all whilesitting down and relaxing.Let Infrared Saunas Rescue YourBody From Being a Junk Yard ofToxinsStimulate your lymphatic......(fights viruses, etc.) and cardiovascular(removes waste, etc.) bodily systems by thewhole body treatment of infrared therapy usingan infrared home sauna.Infrared heat therapy does it all at the same

An infrared home sauna is a handsomeaddition to any suitable room and does notrequire plumbing and extensive wiring. Justplug in and use. (Hint: meditation has beenknown to calm the mind and soul and thiscontributes to your well-being as well).Sauna treatments have been part of manycultures for centuries; however with the highlevel of pollution and toxins you are exposedto nowadays, infrared heat saunas arebecoming more of a necessity than a luxury inhelping to keep the body in tip top shape forthe optimal maintenance of a healthy lifestyle.The benefits of infrared sauna treatments areastounding. Do you really desire good health?Lowering the toxic load of all the cells of yourbody is the way! Infrared sauna therapyprovides major benefits in this regard. Theinfrared sauna treatments heat the layer of fatsand oils that exist just below the skin surface.The fats and oils ‘thin’ and are then easilyexcreted through the pores.The lymphatic system is part of the humanimmune system. It runs throughout your body,circulating and protecting you from bacteria,viruses, fungi, etc. Fats taken in by eating anddrinking, pass through the lymphatic systembefore being processed and released into theblood circulatory system. The lymphaticsystem also removes excess fluids from thebody. The heart pumps blood throughout thebody. This is cardiovascular circulation. Thisaction delivers oxygen and nutrients to everycell and removes carbon dioxide and wasteproducts from the cells. If all your bloodarteries and veins were laid side by side theywould be long enough to circle the earth morethan twice. Infrared sauna baths stimulate boththe lymphatic and cardiovascular circulation.These are great physical benefits, your heartbeats faster as in exercise, and your immunesystem is jolted into action.We carry around a lot of junk in our bodies.
  • 17. These are toxins. How do toxins end up inyour body? You inhale them, eat them andthey are absorbed through the pores of thebody. Some examples are coloring your hair,using toxic underarm deodorants, inhalinggasoline or cigarette fumes, drinking impurewater, eating foods sprayed with pesticidesand herbicides, contaminated fish, cosmeticuse, breathing in smog, etc. These are just afew examples of the numerous sources oftoxins. Infrared sauna therapy aids in theremoval of toxins by inducing the opening ofthe pores and sweating. This is beneficial forthe health and function of the body cells. (Hint:shower after an infrared sauna session using anon toxic vegetable based soap).Skin contains both sweat glands and oilglands. Both are agents of detoxification. Oilglands remove oil soluble toxins (found initems like gasoline, pesticides, make-up etc.)and sweat glands remove water soluble toxins(such as mercury found in fish, etc.). Longerheating time is needed to eliminate oil solubletoxins. Infrared heat saunas operate at a morecomfortable temperature than traditional steamsaunas. The chances of overheating andgetting dizzy are lessened by the use of aninfrared sauna over a traditional sauna. Aninfrared sauna is a more tolerable environmentto keeping your skin temperature upcomfortably for an extended period of time.(Hint: drink water before, during and after thesession to prevent dehydration).Infrared saunas use much less electricity thantraditional saunas and therefore areenvironmentally friendly. The heat in aninfrared sauna is radiant heat. Radiant heatwarms only the body not the air. When theenergy touches you, it converts to heat. This islike sunshine in your sauna. Let the sunshinein!Health benefits of infrared SaunasHow do Infrared Saunas Work?Infrared saunas work using infrared heaters toconvert light directly to heat. This heat has the
  • 18. effect of warming nearby objects withoutraising the air temperature; in others words, abather in an infrared sauna absorbs heat butthe surrounding air does not.Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat is oftenconfused with ultraviolet (UV) radiationbecause both types of energy are present inthe sun’s rays. However, FIR does notdamage the skin the way UV does while stillproviding many of the benefits of naturalsunlight.What are the Health Benefits of an InfraredSauna?In infrared saunas, heat penetrates deep intobody tissues in a way that a traditional saunacannot. This deep tissue warmth is great forsore muscles, stiffness, and joint pain,especially the kind of chronic pain that comesfrom arthritis.The infrared sauna heater warms up and isready for use much more quickly than atraditional sauna’s heater (usually in 10 to 20minutes, compared to at least an hour) and ituses much less energy. And because the airitself does not get hot in infrared saunas, theyare suitable for people with respiratory issueswho find it uncomfortable or even risky to go ina traditional sauna. Bathers in infrared saunasalso can enjoy the benefits of the sauna at amuch lower temperature than in a traditionalsauna.Cost, Installation and MaintenanceGenerally speaking, infrared saunas are lessexpensive, easier to install, and require lessmaintenance than traditional saunas. Theycome in many sizes and are often quiteportable, making them a great choice for ahome sauna when there is limited spaceavailable.While the upfront cost of a far-infrared saunais quite reasonable, a great deal more savingsis realized when it comes to installation. Aninfrared sauna heater does not use water so
  • 19. there is no need for moisture barriers, specialdrainage systems, or complex electrical wiring.Maintenance is much less involved as well,since there are no water-borne bacteria to takeup residence inside and the sauna itself staysnice and dry.How does the Infrared Sauna Compare to aTraditional Sauna?We have already talked about some of thedifferences between infrared saunas andtraditional saunas, so let’s look at a few morecomparisons as well.The health benefits of infrared saunas arecomparable to those of traditional saunas.These benefits may include:• Improved blood circulation• Cleansing of body toxins via the skin, poresand sweat glands• Easing of pain and discomfort caused byarthritis• Relaxation• Stress relief• Relief of muscle soreness• Social interaction and a sense of communitySome sauna enthusiasts say they have abetter experience in infrared saunas, whileothers much prefer the moist heat of atraditional sauna. Because of the dissimilarityin air temperature and humidity between thetwo sauna types, some bathers do responddifferently from one to the other.For example, infrared saunas have thefollowing unique characteristics:• Dry air is better tolerated by bathers withsome respiratory issues• Cooler air is better tolerated by bathers withsome medical conditions• FIR heating is similar to the natural sun,which benefits some people with vitamindeficiencies or Seasonal Affective Disorder• Deep penetration of FIR energy is thought tobe more effective for sore and injured muscles

Saunas & MedicationsIndividuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician or a pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when thebody is exposed to Far infrared waves or elevated body temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta-blockers may impair the body’s natural heat lossmechanisms. Some over the counter drugs such as antihistamines may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke. Saunas & ChildrenThe core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults. This occurs due to a higher metabolic rate per body mass, limited circulatory adaptation toincreased cardiac demands and the inability to regulate body temperature by sweating. Consult with the child’s Pediatrician before using the sauna. Saunas & The Elderly
  • 23. The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The bodymust be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. Saunas & Cardiovascular ConditionsIndividuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension / hypo tension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who aretaking medications, which might affect blood pressure, should exercise extreme caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output,blood flow, in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarilydue to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature. Saunas & Alcohol / Alcohol AbuseContrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “Sweat Out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore they may notrealize it when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. Saunas & Chronic Conditions / Diseases Associated With A Reduced Ability To Sweat OrPerspireMultiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating. Saunas & Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone To BleedingThe use of Infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding. Saunas & FeverAn individual that has a fever should not use the Solo® or any other type of sauna. Saunas & Insensitivity to HeatAn individual that has insensitivity to heat should not use the Solo® or any other type of sauna. Saunas & PregnancyPregnant women should consult a physician before using any other type of sauna because fetal damage can occur with a certain elevated body temperature.
