    Hi, I sweat BUCKETS when I work out. I don’t have access to saunas, and REALLY don’t like baths. Does workout sweat do the same thing as hot baths and sauna sweat?

    No it is not.

    You are in LA and you don’t have access to sauna’s? I’m sure there is a good far infrared out there that you might be okay with.

    No, I do not have access to saunas. Why isn’t sweating during a work out the same as a sauna or hot bath?

    Well, I know I’ve read in a number of places that it’s not. However, in my experience, after moderate exercise I usually feel less toxic than before.

    I would like to see any links to research or any other sites that you have read on this topic. Feeling better after exercise may or may not have to do with less toxins — it can simply be the endorphin rush (which is great too!). Thanks for your reply!

    I sometimes chuckle when someone is convinced in their head about something without evidence, then wants evidence to refute their non-evidenced based thinking.

    Read this for research on far infrared:

    I have already read this document where it is noted that the benefit of infrared sauna use:

    “can therefore, play a pivotal role in both weight control and cardiovascular
    conditioning. It is valuable for those who don’t exercise and those who can’t exercise and want an
    effective weight control and fitness maintenance program, and the benefits regular exercise contribute to
    such a program.”

    Since I already work out, this benefit, according to this document, doesn’t apply to me.

    There were no citations or links to research in this document.

    Can anyone provide me with citations or links to research as to why infrared sauna use is better than sweating from exercise (my original question).

    Thanks!

    LOL. It is apples and oranges. They aren’t the same thing. Sustained heat versus, exercise.

    Check out confirmation bias: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias

    And more research here:

    Thank you for the links. I am not disputing that saunas are beneficial. What I am looking for is any research that sweating caused by exercise is not as beneficial (or is not a substitute) as sweating induced by saunas of any kind or by hot baths.

    The advice I’ve had (from my medically trained but natural-focussed doctor)is that sweating from a workout does indeed sweat out toxins, but its important (as it is with a firs sauna) to wash off the sweat afterwards as the toxins left on your skin will be re-absorbed into the body. Even then, if you are sweating a lot, then toxins which have drooped off you in your sweat will obviously be gone. Also, remember we sweat out beneficial minerals,etc,too, so need to replace these.

    Dr McCombs is of the opinion that exercise does not count. Here is his explanation:

    We don’t recommend exercise whatsoever on the diet because it drains the adrenals which you need for your immune system. You need to build your immune system and not muscle mass. Working out will just drain you more than necessary. Even sitting and sweating out the toxins can be taxing if you overdo it.
