Infrared Sauna Health Benefits

It is known that infrared radiations are beneficial to health, when taken in moderate amounts. Infrared radiations are part of the energy spectrum emitted by the Sun. The wavelength of the infrared radiations is greater than the sunlight or the white light and is less than the radio waves. One of the benefits is that it helps in management of pain, due to back problems, fibromyalgia, arthritis and joint problems. It also promotes faster healing of sports injuries.


Blood Pressure: The infrared radiations penetrate the skin and stimulate the body cells into releasing nitrous oxide. The presence of nitrous oxide in the blood relaxes the blood vessels and lowers the blood pressure, which is especially useful for people with high blood pressure. Infrared radiations also raise the body temperature and speed up the blood circulation. This causes increase in heartbeats and burns calories.

Weight Loss: The rise in body temperature due to infrared penetration, causes the body fat to liquefy. This rise in temperature also causes the transpiration, i.e. the loss of body fluids or water through the skin. At approximately 110 degrees Fahrenheit, the body fat accumulated under the skin can be released out of the body, with the transpiring water, leading to weight loss. Make sure you drink enough water, every 15-20 minutes or as the need arises, so as not to dehydrate yourself, while enjoying the sauna.

Skin Diseases: Infrared saunas can help you in getting rid of the skin diseases, such as eczema and acne, and also help in treating yeast infections or candidiasis. The rise in body temperature, due to infrared radiations, creates conditions similar to fever in the body. This stimulates the immune system of the body and helps in containing the pathogens, such as virus, bacteria and yeasts. Infrared radiations get rid of itchy eczema and helps you in resisting the urge to scratch. These radiations also kill bacteria at the site of the acne and helps in clearing and containing them. The increased speed of blood flow allows fast delivery of oxygen and all essential nutrients to the body cells and helps in regeneration of skin affected by these pathogens.The most important point is that it helps in relaxation by relieving stress. Stress is the leading cause of eczema. Infrared radiations by taking care of the root cause of the eczema, prevents it from occurring.

Detoxification: The human body is an amazing system. It filters out toxic substances from what we eat, breath, drink and the harmful things we acquire on contact. Where do these harmful toxic substances go? They remain in our body. One of the benefits of infrared sauna is that it can help you in eliminating these substances from your body by making you sweat. These toxic substances are released along with the body fat and the sweat, when the deep penetration of the infrared radiations raises the body temperature. By using the best one, you can get rid of the heavy metals such as nickel, cadmium, mercury, lead, zinc which are known cancer causing agents. With the sweat, you also get rid of the nicotine, alcohol, sulfuric acid and cholesterol accumulated in the body. This cleaning act purifies our body and ultimately, the blood present in the body.Those individuals who are consuming photosensitizing medications or have sensitive skin, or have history of mania or disorders, such as porphyria should not use this therapy, without taking proper advice.
