THEORY OF SWEATING
SWEATING is one of the body's healthiest reactions. Sweating
by overheating the body produces these effects:
"GIVE ME A CHANCE TO CREATE FEVER, AND I WILL CURE ANY
said Parmenides, 2500 years ago.
Nobel prize winner, Dr. A. Lwoff, a French Virologist, believes
that high temperature during infection helps combat the growth
of viruses. "Therefore, fever should not be brought down
with drugs," he says. (Prolonged high fever should not be
ignored, however. Consult your physician when in doubt.)
Two medical doctors, Zabel and Issels, have this to say about
fever: "Artificially induced fever has the greatest potential
in the treatment of many diseases, including cancer."
Ward Dean, MD, a U.S. Army Flight Surgeon who has researched
the physiological effects of sweating in the sauna, finds that
it can be effective in conditioning the cardiovascular system
and burning calories. Sweating in a sauna is a good "workout" for people unable to exercise, such as disabled people in wheelchairs
or immobilized athletes recovering from injuries, according to
Sweating stimulates the body's own healing systems. The healing
of many chronic and acute conditions, such as colds, infections,
rheumatic disease and cancers, is accelerated by the body's own
curative forces. The body is thoroughly cleansed and rejuvenated
inside and outside.
Many toxins, accumulated in the system as a result of metabolic wastes and sluggish elimination, are thrown out of the body with perspiration. The sauna increases the eliminative, detoxifying and cleansing capacity of the skin by the stimulating action on the sweat glands.
