A Sauna is a bathhouse or room, usually made of wood, which uses dry heat to induce perspiration, with steam being produced by pouring water on heated stones. Perspiration or sweating is one of the main ways our bodies get rid of the traces of hundreds of toxins that accumulate inside us from pesticides, drugs and anmade chemicals. 15 minutes in a Jaquar sauna can help us sweat as much as we might otherwise do over an entire day or more. And the benefits of this aid in many medical conditions.
Saunas stimulate the body to release fat-soluble toxins, heavy metals, and other toxic chemicals in sweat via pores more effectively than any other form of heat therapy or exercise.
