Let's try infrared sauna

There are many kinds of sauna types, spa tubs, spa heaters, and more spa accessories in the market you can choose to install in your home.

Nowadays we can have our own spa or sauna in our home. It really is a good investment for your health. Saunas are used both for recreational and therapeutic purposes, with most people utilizing them as a relaxation tool that provides additional health benefits.

I read about this new type of spa, it's very new to me and I'm sure it's new to most of you. It's called infrared saunas.
What is infrared sauna? Infrared radiation is electromagnetic radiation of a wavelength longer than that of visible light, but shorter than that of radio waves. The radiation hits the surface of the body and heats through a process called conversion, instead of heating the air around you.

An infrared sauna is usually a wooden box, or small wooden room, containing several infrared heaters. It uses different technology in the panels, which will give deeper heat to our body. Our body absorb almost 93% of the infrared waves that reach our skin, while a conventional steam sauna relies only on indirect heat: The skin must absorb the heat out of the surrounding air. So this infrared sauna is much more efficiently than a conventional sauna.

What are the benefits of having far infrared sauna ?
If you have muscle spasms, joint stiffness and achiness, general aches and pains due to conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis, far infrared sauna can reduce the pain.
It also get rid off potential carcinogenic heavy metals such as mercury and lead, as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.

Before trying out infrared sauna or having it at your home, consider these precautions too:
- Check with your physician or pharmacist for possible interactions with a drugs affect due the use of an infrared sauna.
- Do you have certain diseases? Raising the core temperature may be contraindicated for individuals with adrenal suppression, multiple sclerosis, or systemic lupus erythematosus.
An acute joint injury should not be heated within the first 48 hours, or until the joint erythema and swelling subsides.
- Discontinue use of infrared saunas immediately when you are pregnant.

If you are ready to have far infrared sauna, you can choose a model that suits your needs and budget.

Drink Water On Empty Stomach

I've been following my friend's advice to drink lots of water just after I wake up in the morning. My boo also told me the same thing, but he said the amount of water should be half of our size. Hmmm..... That much, huh?

This morning I found this good article, explaining more about drinking water:

It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value for old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a
100% cure for the following diseases:

Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat,
epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney
and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes,
constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders,
ear nose and throat diseases.


1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water

2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute

3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.

4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours

5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.

6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.

The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure / control / reduce main diseases:-

1. High Blood Pressure - 30 days
2. Gastric - 10 days
3. Diabetes - 30 days
4. Constipation - 10 days
5. Cancer - 180 days
6. TB - 90 days
7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards - daily.

This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times.

It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life.

Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

This makes sense.. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain.

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.

It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.

Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine.

Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks: Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.

Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.

You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.

60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.

Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to everyone they know, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.
