Fatigue & Your Immune System- Part 2

Updated: Nov 9, 2023

Detoxification - the 2nd essential strategy for recovery.

More people are now recognising that they are suffering from the symptoms of poor Immune Health mainly thanks to the research and efforts to educate and raise awareness of this debilitating condition from within the alternative and holistic therapies community.

Some of the latest research shows that a pro-active and more natural & holistic strategy to recovery is the best way forward - correcting the cause of the symptoms and treating the body as a whole.

Our previous Immune Health article looked at the looked at the first stage of recovery - gastrointestinal restoration.

We’re now taking a look at the second essential strategy for recovery - Detoxification

Detoxification is the process by which the liver, kidneys, colon and lymph system convert toxic substances so that they can be safely and successfully eliminated from the body.

Chemical toxins from external environmental sources – and in the case of covid 19 from medications - build up within fat deposits throughout the body, particularly in adipose tissue. This eventually leads to an overload which alters the body’s balance or “homeostasis” and this interference with our body’s biological ability to restore internal balance results in “dis-ease” within the body in one form or another.

How can Nimaya therapies help with Detoxification?

Nimaya offers a number of therapies that are useful in the detoxification process including Floatation Therapy and Infrared Sauna, as well as Japanese Integrated Medicine, Whole Body Cryotherapy and Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy.

Floatation Therapy

This is one of our most popular therapies for promoting detoxification within the body.

The water in the floatation tanks contains a high concentration of Epsom salts, which have been used for centuries to treat many medical complaints.

The salts not only provide the buoyancy to allow you to float, but when dissolved in water, they release sulphates and magnesium ions which are essential for the physiological and cellular functions of your body.

It is believed that raising your magnesium and sulphate levels and the combination of both ingredients stimulates detoxification pathways and helps flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances.

The magnesium ions are absorbed through the skin and infuse your body with a much-needed calming dose of magnesium. As well as promoting a detox of your body, they are anti-inflammatory and help clear your lymph system from bacteria.

Floatation therapy offers many other benefits for the mind and body including increasing your immune health, reducing feelings of stress and anxiety and bringing about a deep relaxation, all of which help you feel better and more positive about recovery from long covid symptoms.

Infrared Sauna

Nimaya offers a full-spectrum Infrared Sauna which uses near, mid and far infrared light waves to optimise your wellbeing by alleviating stress, detoxifying your body and improving your overall health.

The most effective way to remove toxins from the fat storage sites is to mobilise the toxic fat. The heat-stress within the body which is activated by the infrared sauna is an effective method of removing fat-stored toxins from the body.

One of the other big infrared sauna health benefits is its ability to increase your blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, which in turn triggers the body’s natural detoxification system, releasing built-up toxins, allowing their removal from the body and bringing benefits to both body and mind.

Daily sauna sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of accumulated highly toxic heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, and other organic and inorganic compounds.

The Infrared Sauna doesn't emit any of the harmful rays produced by sunlight – just natural healing light and heat. Infrared rays are of a similar wavelength to those which are naturally emitted by the human body. Most users feel rested, rejuvenated and re-energised after using our infrared saunas.

Nutritional Supplements

As well as eating a nutrient rich diet, it’s suggested that the following supplements can help support the liver and kidney functions and play an important role in getting your health back on track. Please do take advice from your doctor before starting a course of any vitamin, mineral or herbal supplements.

  • Glutathione – a great antioxidant

  • Milk Thistle – the silymarin found in milk thistle can help the liver heal itself through cell regeneration. Milks Thistle also boosts glutathione levels and prevents depletion

  • Spirulina

  • Chlorella

  • Curcumin/turmeric

  • A B-complex vitamin

  • A fibre supplement to help the body excrete toxins
