Are you feeling tired, stressed and sick, but don’t know why?

You’re not alone. In fact, our modern world is full of toxins that are bombarding our human bodies on a daily basis…from the food we eat (over 10,000 chemicals are used in processed foods alone!), the air we breathe and the water we drink. In fact, there are even toxins hidden in our houses and clothing from chemicals used in cleaning products, soaps and shampoos, paints and fabrics. In total there are 80,000 registered toxic substances in our environment with nearly 1500 being added each year.

So if you want to be healthy, what do you do?

The First Things First holistic approach says that with all this toxic baggage, you need to dump your junk to get started towards better health. The answer is to detoxify. But detoxification can be somewhat complex when you look at all the options out there.

Your body WANTS to heal and with detoxification therapy, you give it a fighting chance to create your best health.

Our comprehensive diagnostic testing detects toxicity in your body and allows us to create a customized action plan for your health and well being. We also educate you about how to make the kinds of choices that allow you and your family to create your best health, one step at a time.

5 Most Common Toxins:

  3. Chlorine (in cleaning supplies, water and in the air near industrial plants)

  4. Phthalates (in plastics, like plastic wrap and food storage containers)

  5. VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) – (in dry cleaning, paints, carpets, deodorants, moth repellants and air fresheners)

Toxins Stored In Your Body

Toxic substances are stored in fat cells throughout your body and they continue to accumulate throughout your life. Toxins and heavy metals create a situation of chronic toxic overload, which can lead to:

  • Enzyme dysfunction
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Brain chemistry imbalances

In fact, research suggests that toxins are behind many of the chronic, debilitating illnesses of our time. Let Holistic Care of Charelston help you purify your body and your life from toxic overload.


Far-infrared Sauna Therapy

saunaDid you know that a slight raise in body temperature can boost your body’s natural detoxification systems and immune function?

One of the best ways to increase your body temperature naturally so you can heal is with far infrared sauna therapy.

Your body’s tissues normally produce infrared energy, used by your body for a number of healing processes. By delivering penetrating warmth to the body, the far infrared sauna increases your body’s own infrared energy levels, enhancing your ability to heal.



What Sets Far Infrared Therapy Apart?


Unlike the heat produced in traditional saunas, far infrared heat is able to penetrate your body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches. This stimulates your body’s immune system and cellular detoxification more effectively than a traditional sauna. Additionally, far infrared saunas are better tolerated than steam saunas because the heat is not felt on your skin’s surface.

Benefits of Far Infrared Therapy

  • Enhanced immune system health

  • Improved cardiovascular conditioning

  • Stress relief

  • Weight and cellulite control

  • Pain relief

  • Increased oxygenation of your tissues

  • Restores your skin’s ability to eliminate toxins

  • Helps fight infection

  • Helps open nasal passages and sinuses

  • Helps remove toxic chemicals and heavy metals from your body

  • Enhances metabolic processes

  • Eases muscle tension

  • Helps fight infection

Who should NOT use a sauna?

  • Hemophiliacs
  • Pregnant women and nursing mothers.

* People with advanced symptomatic heart disease, unstable angina, or severe adrenal suppression should use the sauna only under close medical supervision.
