Myth or Fact: Chiropractor in Eden Prairie Explains If It Is It Possible to Sweat Out Toxins

Chiropractors treat 3 common conditions

Some of the simplest moves when it comes to our health can create the biggest waves. Sweating is just one of the ways to change your health in a positive way. Since we live in the beautiful state of MN, this can be hard to do during the extreme cold winter months. That’s why saunas are popular over in the northland.  Sweating out your toxins is just one claimed benefit that saunas have to offer. Saunas also have the ability to reduce cardiovascular risk, improve mitochondrial function & have been linked to reducing the possibility of dementia.

In other countries, saunas may be referred to as, “A poor persons apothecary.” They have been used, in Finland specifically, for nearly 2,000 years as a tool to reduce the amount of stress on a body and improve overall health. We now know that saunas can improve neurological and cardiovascular functions, but did you know that they can be beneficial for post workout regimens as well? Saunas are being used by athletes and other work out gurus to improve their performance. A post workout sauna session allows the muscles to relax and assists in faster rehabilitation of those strained areas.

With all of these other benefits on the table, detoxification still seems to be a benefit that many people are intrigued by. Here is one fact to consider. Although our bodies have a built-in detoxification system around the kidney and liver regions, some researchers believe that sweating can be an extremely effective way to detoxify the body of heavy metals. Whether we achieve this perspiration through a high intensity workout or through a relaxing session in the sauna, research has proven that metals are excreted in measurable amounts. This is considered a safe way to eliminate arsenic, mercury, & lead.

Get out there, get your sweat on and feel free to reap all of the sweaty benefits!
