Relaxation is more important to health than most people realize. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75 to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system.
According to New York Times best-selling author and fitness expert Jorge Cruise – as well as many other health professionals – the more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate and blood pressure and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection.
Scientific evidence also shows that infrared light therapy helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during an infrared light therapy session, they drop immediately afterward. In fact, infrared light therapy has been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure with regular use.
