"Infrared Saunas eliminate every type of toxic contamination you have in your body."

How to Use an Infrared Sauna

"A lot of times when you detoxify, you feel like you're having surgery conducted without anesthetic," Dr. Clement says. "I mean, I was a heavyset—forget heavyset, I was obese. When I began all of this, I was a fat guy, smoking three packs of cigarettes a day. And I can tell you, when I started to detoxify… I thought I was dying… And the odor that expelled from my body was so foul I had to open up the windows when I was in the bathroom."

Dr. Clement's general sauna recommendations are as follows:

Infrared sauna: 150-180 degrees Fahrenheit, for 15-30 minutes
Regular (Finnish, or moist) sauna: 180-190 degrees Fahrenheit, for 10-20 minutes

"What's interesting is you'll actually detoxify more, if you have a choice, with the infrared sauna," he says. "And infrared saunas, if you went out to buy one, are far less expensive than the normal saunas today.

Types of Toxins Expelled when Using Saunas

According to Dr. Clement, infrared saunas help release every type of toxic contamination you have in your body; most notable of which are mercury and lead. However, calcium is another. We're not talking about natural calcium here, but the types of calcium added to many processed foods that your body cannot process. Dr. Clement's book Supplements Exposed addresses the problem with many nutritional supplements and fortified foods.

"[Most supplements] are made out of petrochemicals, and coal tar, and turpentine—Vitamin E is an example," he says."What happens is that if you look at calcium, the two most common, 88 percent are made either out of oyster shells that are totally indigestible, or chalk, which is a known carcinogen! Now, this is insanity, and how we allow this is corrupt, but we won't get into that today.

… [A]ll that calcium that you consume… that your body cannot process, lodges inside of your muscles. A lot of these muscular diseases we have today, and painful diseases, like fibromyalgia [can be due to this.]"

Other contaminants being eliminated include drugs and environmental chemicals that you're exposed to.
