Most people don’t sweat enough.
Sweat not only cools your body, but it acts as a garbage collector.
Antiperspirants, artificial environments, smog, synthetic clothing, and a relatively idle physical lifestyle will clog skin pores and inhibit the healthy flow of sweat. As you will learn, sweat can reverse all of these detrimental side effects!
When you’re hot, as you would be in a sauna, heat-sensitive nerve endings produce acetylcholine, a chemical that tells the 2.3 million sweat glands embedded in your skin to react.
• During a 15-minute sauna, your body will produce up to 2 pints of sweat. Most people have a normal sweat rate for an entire day of less than 1 pint.
• During a FIT Bodywrap you’ll actually sweat more than being in a sauna for 15 minutes.
• Sweating is good for you
Relaxing in a FIT Bodywrap could be the most vigorous activity you’ve had all day! The heat produces an artificial “fever” and every organ of your body jumps into action. While you look and feel relaxed, your inner organs are as active as though you were jogging or swimming. At the same time, your body is being cleansed from the inside out by your skin, which is busy sweating to get rid of all that waste.
• Ninety-nine percent of what sweat leaves on the surface of your skin is water. The remaining one percent is that undesirable waste.
Sweating is such an effective de-toxifier that that it even draws out lactic acid which causes stiff muscles and contributes to general fatigue.
• Sweat also flushes out toxic metals such as copper, lead, zinc, and mercury, which your body absorbs in polluted environments. Sweating can remove the daily build up of heavy metals from your body that would normally take your kidneys 24 hours or more to eliminate.
