It's the same rationale as regular saunas. When you sweat your body excretes certain things, and some of those things are toxins. Thus you are reducing the levels of those toxins in your body. IR "sauna"s are just a different way to induce you to sweat really.the "Science" behind them detoxifying the body is ropey at best.
Yes, you could just go jogging until you get hot and sweaty too. That achieves a similar result. So does a really hot bath. Enh the IR bombardment idea might be more convenient for some people.
Benefits of "fasting" depend on HOW you do it not just IF you do it. If you are not eating to the point you actually suffer from starvation you're doing it wrong. Proper fasting is actually a method of dietary regulation, and not as simple as "don't eat".... It's about eating the right amount of food overall, and not specific portion sizes.That's putting something of a spin on Paltrow's statement.
I tend to agree with the medical director of NHS that, suggesting that fasting and other esoteric practices are an effective treatment for Covid, is highly irresponsible.
The bottom line is that I would choose to take the NHS' advice ahead of Ms Paltrow's and I believe the only genuine benefit from fasting is weight loss.
Indeed the NHS advice seems to be that it is very important to maintain levels of nutrition if you become infected with Covid.
