Detoxification With Near-Infrared Light- Interview with Brian Richards

Mercola Videos

2018 Interview I am of the belief, as are many other experts, that near-infrared sauna is an integral component of successful detoxification. Near infrared light also has many other biological benefits. Here, I interview Brian Richards, founder of SaunaSpace, who is equally passionate about this modality, and has developed a near-infrared composite sauna using high-powered incandescent light bulbs. While he does not have any formal health training, he’s quite knowledgeable and can provide information I think many could benefit from. The typical infrared sauna sold in the US is far-infrared. These low-energy wavelengths provide virtually no photobiomodulation health benefits; they only heat your body superficially.
The near-infrared wavelengths can penetrate up to 4 inches into your body’s tissues. The incandescent light bulb is the most efficient way to heat tissue because it is mostly near-infrared.
Only a few percent of solar radiation are far-infrared. About 40 percent of the sunlight spectrum is near-infrared.
Sunlight and incandescent light interacts with light receptor proteins called chromophores in your body. When light hits the chromophores, they activate a variety of biological processes. Near-infrared also activates the mitochondrial chelating systems in the cells.
Near-infrared light therapy stimulates your mitochondria to release nitric oxide and boost ATP production which, together, promote healing effects such as DNA repair and cellular regeneration. Subscribe for the latest health news: Visit our website: Listen to our podcasts: Find us on Social Media
