A God wink

Sauna as proper detox
Sauna came into her life Dr. Morris. Specifically steam and wood fired but not infrared. Healing of lymphatic system. Get your body to an internal temperature the core body as well as your skin. Your skin is considered to be your third kidney. Your body is always on your side. Your skin will help your kidneys if your kidneys are backed up. Kidneys need support. A kidney and lymphatic problem. Steroids dumb down the histamine being produced in your body. The root cause of adrenal failure . A top recommended protocol is sauna and cold bath, at least three rounds if possible.
Skin cleaning, lymph cleaning, and helping your kidneys through detox. When your kidneys stop filtering, your body gets backed up. The lake (lymph) becomes more like a pond or swamp.
The five systems of flow are opened through sauna. Arterial and venous blood, lymphatic, nervous system and chi flow are increased.
Expanding our cells. Bringing fluids and alkaline in. Shrinking of cells to purge waste.
Hydration is a hot topic. How much mineral and water. Absorption is critical. Not so much volume. Intracellular water vs extracellular water. Acidic vs. alkaline. Getting minerals into the body. Cellular male-absorption. ion minerals. The body has 90 trace minerals. If you are eating a well balanced diet, you are usually getting your proper minerals. When you go into sauna, or excessive exercise, it’s important to be able to replace minerals.
The minerals are tested for absorption. They have a 97% absorption rate to invite minerals into the cells. Water with proper minerals and absorption. Ion5 and Ionic Elements are preferred due to their purity and absorption rates.
A higher mineral diet
Hunger is not often from the stomach. What your cells think is what your self thinks. “We need nutrition!”
Organic fruits and vegetables
Herbicides and pesticides.
Decades of soil degradation. Came from a profit incentive. We are losing our nutrition and health. Weeds/insects are important. They break down the minerals in the soil that feed the plant. We are not carrying the minerals and nutrition in our foods.
Mineral replenishment is so critical.
A day in the life of Carrie: diet and sauna
- 10 mineral drops in the AM.
- 10 mineral drops before sauna.
- 10 mineral drops after sauna.
8-10 oz. of water with your mineral drops if fine.
Coconut water after sauna. Lots of fruits and raw veggies.
wood fired sauna vs. health club sauna
Organs getting hot vs. just your skin. Not feeling so zapped with a well ventilated sauna.
Expanding lung capacity.
Fresh cool down opportunities. It doesn’t smell like a pool or chemical. Earth elements
“Sauna is a priority for me”
You can get an equivalent of an hour or two of exercise with the cardiovascular health of sauna
Living on the alkaline side of the fence. Alkalinity is something that heals the body. 80/20 rule. “80 percent of what I put into my body is alkaline.” You want to have balance in your life. Maintaining an alkaline balance in our life.
Alkalinity through deep breathing
The breath is very powerful for maintaining alkalinity. You want to deep breathe. Deep diaphragm breath. Soul breathing. “All breath is good.” Soul breathing allows for oxygen to get into the cells. No chest movement. Deep belly breaths. 5 minutes of this is better than a cup of coffee. “100 breathes to joy.” Continuous flow to breathe.

“Meet your body where you are at.” If sauna makes you uncomfortable chances are your body is acidic.
Non structured environment.
We are all connected. “This is as much as i can handle.” Honoring that. Your body is designed to heal when you give it the right environment. The sauna is an absolutely vital part of this.
