Yes, Sweat the Small Stuff
By Dr. Brad Crump, Health Services Manager
A healthy and effective detoxification program involves many supportive strategies from nutrition and supplementation to stress management and reducing our environmental exposures. One area that is sometimes overlooked is the importance and benefit of sweating.
Sweating helps to support the function of our nervous system, lowers stress, helps to remove harmful chemicals such as pesticides and even heavy metals through the skin, can support healthy blood sugar levels and can, of course, help us burn more calories and support metabolic rate.
The best ways to support healthy detoxification through sweating should include exercise, saunas or steam bath as well as infrared sauna. These are safe and convenient ways to support healthy elimination of toxins. They can also be very relaxing!
