The health benefits of a near infrared sauna

 Live naturally in an unnatural world

Saunas are popular luxury of spa and health club culture. However, they are not a new innovation of the modern age, in fact, they have been around for a thousand years, used by various cultures for their various health benefits.

The Mayans had their hot houses, Native Americans have their sweat lodges, and Russians have their bathhouses. Do not let this rich history mistake you into thinking that saunas are an antiquated therapy, in fact, with the recent invention of near infrared technology, saunas can take the healing and therapeutic process into a whole new level

I’m going to share with you over 15 ways that a near infrared can help you with your health. This in my opinion is an essential edition to your health regime and has many studies related. Another one of my favorite treatments, it makes my skin glow and I always feel I’ve had a 5k walk around the block. It’s also encouraging as not everyone can exercise and we need alternatives. This is more common than we think. Unfortunately, being sedentary can lead to blood pressure issues, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular issues and more. New research shows that the use of a sauna may provide a substitute or alternative to exercise when you can’t get the exercise you need for whatever reason

To acclimate your body to near infrared saunas, start with a couple of sessions per week and work up

If you have any type of health condition, supervision is recommended.

  It is also recommended to have an attendant with you if you are removing drugs from your tissue storage as you can experience flashbacks during the detoxification process.

  • Do not exercise or take a high dose of niacin before using a sauna.
  • Drink plenty of water before entering the sauna.
  • Towel off sweat every couple of minutes while in the sauna.

  Leave the sauna immediately if you feel faint as you may be experiencing a heat stroke. Common symptoms of a heat stroke are cessation of sweating, a red face, and a rapid heartbeat.

  • Relax and do not exercise after a sauna session. A 10-to-15-minute break is recommended to give your body time to relax.

Some people experience healing reactions the first few times they use a sauna. This is the result of toxins leaving your body as your body heals. Some temporary symptoms people experience are mild rashes, odours, and tastes in their mouth. Some people feel more tired than normal, changes in bowel movements, headaches, and aches and pains. These symptoms are temporary
