sweat turning the towels blue

Well I must be detoxing something. I have been doing the sauna for 7 months now and last night after my sauna I hung my towels in the bathroom to dry before putting them in the laundry basket and after my towel was dry I noticed all these blue stains on it ! This week I have also been having severe headaches and muscle aches. My doctor told me that she has seen cases where people have had towels stained strange colors from sweating in the sauna. She said that is due to chemicals and toxins coming out of the skin.

I was shocked when I saw my towel....it is a light colored towel with all these bright blue stains on it.

I had a similar experience but had never heard of anyone else who had. Thanks for sharing it!!

Before I went on this program, my Ayurvedic healer gave me some special oils she made for me to rub into my skin. They were in an organic sesame oil base with a bunch of Indian herbs dissolved in it. Whenever I used the oil, a few hours later anything I touched with my bare skin would turn the most beautiful indigo-purple color. And the skin under my fingernails would turn purple, making it look like I had grease under my fingernails. I left purple footprints on my white bathroom rug. It eventually stopped after a few months on the oils (which were meant to facilitate detox) so I figured my body had rid itself of whatever poisons were causing that reaction.

Wow...I can't, and yet can believe it. I have also been having strange experiences since starting on this road. It is not always clear if I am having an reaction or die off, but I know that I have had candida for a LONG time. I have recanted situations to my father (who always thought I was so sensitive) and I think even he is realizing that there is something to this.

I have had food tast spoiled for a number of days, only to notice that I had a thick coating on my tongue. I had massive die off just from starting with the diet. I have also had arthritic - like symptoms in the morning (some practitioners I am involved with think it is die off or detox. One thinks it is allergies to foods).

I will say that I would encourage anyone to get IgG food testing. My son and I finally bit the bullet and did it. Our tests came back w/ a lot of allergies. I am feeling better since eliminating the foods and my son's eczema seems to have gotten a whole lot better.

I wish all of you well on this path. We really seem to have been building up toxins, etc for a long time.
My father was a big believer in natural healing. When I was sick he used to tell me to take an enema and he also thought highly of castor oil packs to treat liver issues. My dad did NOT like the use of drugs for anything.

In may ways he was ahead of his time. Smile

I just realized something. The one time my sweat turned the towels blue was a few days after I took that NDF (chlorella and cilantro) tincture. I can't take that one because it has alcohol in it but I am going to get a new product from BioPure tomorrow that is alcohol-free.

Tarilee, Can chlorella/cilantro have that powerful an effect? That is the only really new thing I did and this is the only time my sweat turned the towels blue.

Thanks,
Mary
Interesting...I have no idea. Have you been in touch with the NDF company with this question?

Your experience is the first 'blue towel' incident I've ever come across and I'm fascinated by it. If you research Scientology Purification treatments however, you'll come across many stories of thousands of people who were following the Hubbard protocol and having interesting phenomena while cleansing in the sauna.

Take care,

Hi Tarilee,

I spoke to the people at NDF and they said some people do experience stained towels when they sauna but not specifically due to NDF.
I was pretty interesting...my doctor thinks it is a chemical that is leaching out of my body. I used to get my hair permed (many years ago) and she thought maybe it was chemicals from that.

I have been using far infrared sauna for 4 days now at home. My friend has been using it as well and I provide the towels, white towels. The third time he used it I saw a black stain on the towel where he was sitting and where hos feet were on the floor. I asked him if he used any lotions or oils or new dark color underwater before and he said nothing. The 4th time he used it, the same black stain where he was sitting but not by the feet. I couldn't believe it that he is detoxing something that makes a black stain on the towel 2 days back to back. I found this blog and I wanted to share and ask if anyone knows what it might be. Thank you

Hi there,

Sounds outrageous but not unbelievable. I have experienced unusual things in extended sauna detox programs. Not sure how long he was working on detox in the sauna or if he was taking niacin or other catalysts but it sounds like something was coming out of him - likely something that needed to come out from the sounds of it. What it was, I could not say. Only a lab that does chemical analysis could. Does the stain wash out of the towels?

Take care,

Tarilee
