According to Dr. Charles Raison in his 2016 study on hyperthermia to treat depression, published in the Journal of American Medicine,
“Heat makes the brain happy.”
The University of Wisconsin-Madison raised the body temperature using infrared heat, and improved the volunteers experiencing major depression were treated with a single therapy.
It was very successful in alleviating some of their depressive episodes for up to six weeks after treatment.
“We think that using heat to stimulate the skin activates serotonin-producing cells in the midbrain, which then produce a change in how the brain functions.”
Infraheat produces sweat, detoxifying the body both inside and out; improving blood circulation while also releasing toxins.
