Wellness Pathway #106: Sweat Yourself Healthy

“Never let them see you sweat,” is more than just a line from a deodorant commercial. It reflects the bias of our culture. To sweat, and sweat profusely, is shunned. Unfortunately, sweating is important to optimum health. It removes toxins that cannot be adequately released any other way. Sweat has been called the body’s “third kidney.” Keep in mind that until the advent of air conditioning, a recent invention in the history of humankind, people were used to sweating, and sweating profusely, on a regular basis. It’s in our genes to sweat. To try and avoid sweating at all times is not a healthy ambition.

Vigorous exercise is one way to sweat profusely. Another way is to sit in a steam bath or sauna. And there’s nothing better than the one-two punch of doing both. Work out hard for 30 minutes or longer then shower and sit in a steam bath or sauna. Just be sure to re-hydrate afterwards by drinking that gallon-a-day of filtered water. Do this four or more days a week and you’ll be well on your way to better health.
