I have practiced general surgery and cancer surgery for over 25 years. With regard to my surgical patients, I tell them when they have recovered from their surgery, that their work has just begun. I remind them that their two most important questions should be: why did I get this, and what will keep it from returning? I don’t profess to have all the answers. However, there are sound principles of foundational health that I have employed with my patients and have been pleased with the results. These include stress reduction, diet, exercise, rest, supplements, elimination, and detoxification. Detoxification is critical due to the increasing amounts of toxins in our diet and environ-ment. This includes fat soluble toxins such as PCBs, and hexane, and toxic minerals such as mercury, lead and cadmium. Part of my suggested program for toxin removal is the use of infrared sauna therapy. I have personally seen people recover from a multitude of problems including, insomnia, constipation, fibromyalgia, allergies, chronic infections, arthritis, and fatigue after a few weeks of sauna therapy.
In addition, I have seen mercury levels (as measured in the blood) drop 400% in less than a month.
I believe that infrared sauna is a safe and effective detoxification therapy which is of value
to most everyone regardless of age.
