Dr. Alejandro about Infrared Mind + Body

As a modern wellness brand, it’s our goal at Infrared Mind + Body to help others reach their fullest potential—mentally and physically. We consider ourselves caregivers, and we like to look toward other caregivers who match our values.

*Cue Dr. Alejandro Junger* 

A cardiologist, New York Times bestseller, and infrared sauna user himself, Dr. Junger founded the Clean Program, a leading health and wellness program, to help transform the lives of others, and, quite simply, make people feel good.

But like the old saying goes—Dr. Junger had to help himself before he could help others. After graduating from medical school in Uruguay, Dr. Junger moved to New York for postgraduate training. Unfortunately, the stress and strain of the big move plus a change in his diet resulted in irritable bowel syndrome and mood problems. All of a sudden, he became his own patient. 

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right? Dr. Junger channeled his frustrations to search for alternative ailments. He documented his findings in his book and program, “Clean: The Revolutionary Program To Restore the Body’s Natural Ability to Heal Itself,” as he learned how to restore his own detoxification system.

Today, he uses infrared therapy on a daily basis. Unlike traditional saunas, infrared saunas warm you up from within, unlocking the healing benefits of your body. According to Dr. Junger, “Because IR penetrates deeper—up to three inches—it mobilizes and burns fat, which not only helps with weight loss but with detoxification as well, since many of the toxins we absorb are surrounded and trapped by fat.”

Believe it or not, weight loss is only one of infrared therapy’s powerful benefits. Check out the rest of ’em here.
