/24-7PressRelease/ - BUENA PARK, CA, February 20, 2008 - The use of an in-home far infrared sauna offers those with fibromyalgia, and other health conditions such as arthritis and chronic fatigue syndrom, relief from pain and freedom from pills and drugs.
"Fibromyalgia is a very painful condition consisting of chronic, widespread pain throughout the body. The legitimacy of the pain as a recognized disease is continuously debated, but the pain is real for those who have it," commented Theresa Nguyen of PLH Products, manufacturer of Health Mate saunas. The FDA has approved a pill for the treatment of fibromyalgia, according to a recent New York Times article (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/14/health/14pain.html?_r=1&oref=slogin).
In addition to pain, fibromyalgia sufferers get very little sleep, even with the aid of sleeping pills. They also struggle with depression, and as a result many fibromyalgia patients feel like they are in a fog brought on by their many medications.
"Our Health Mate customers tell me that they absolutely love our saunas for fibromyalgia pain relief, muscle relaxation, increased endorphin production (which reduces depression), the healing of damaged tissue, and helps them reduce medications under medical care. They also report reduced physical and mental stress and depression, which is so damaging to fibro patients, and it greatly increases their sleep time and quality," explained an independent Health Mate dealer, Richard Easley of Spartanburg, SC.
Easley said he has sold in-home far infrared Health Mate saunas to over 100 fibromyalgia patients, mostly by word of mouth. One sufferer tells another, and Easley says they are the best testimonial of the benefits of the Health Mate sauna.
"The far infrared dry sauna helps to rid the body of toxic metals picked up from the environment. Of course, the kidneys take out many of these toxins, but research shows that a daily sweat can help reduce the body's accumulation of lead, mercury and nickel in addition to cadmium, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol," said Nguyen.
The use of a far infrared sauna causes a person to sweat two to three times more than in a conventional heat sauna, according to Nguyen. The deep penetrating infrared heat also stimulates the heart to send more blood to the cells of the body, which increases blood circulation, bringing relief to pain and other symptoms.
