Sweat for your health!

Did you ever consider that if you never do anything strenuous enough to work up a good old-fashioned sweat, you are damaging your body and your health?

In a Greenmedinfo.com article by founder Sayer Ji, we learn that modern science has once again caught up and confirmed what Indians with their sweat lodges knew long ago–that sweating is good for you.

Sweating has long been known to regulate the body temperature, but conventional medicine  has mostly scoffed at those who believe in bodily detoxification through sweating, considering it ‘quackery.’

Conventional medicine (and government health agencies) has also overlooked the relevance of today’s environmental, pharmaceutical and food toxins on health. But now modern science has at last confirmed that our heavily toxic society is indeed relevant to our health. A major 2011 study published in the Archives of  Environmental and Contamination Toxicology found various levels of toxic environmental, food, medicine, heavy lead and pesticide residues in the blood, urine and sweat of all their study subjects.

In 2012, a study published in the Journal of Public and Environmental Health found that sweating helps  remove many types of toxins detrimental to health, including mercury, lead, BPA and Phthalates. The study concluded that, “Sweating deserves consideration for toxic element detoxification.”

So get busy and sweat. Not perspire. SWEAT, and remember (in case you’ve forgotten), that our bodies were made for action!
