Infrared Saunas And Candidiasis

Candidiasis is a type of fungal infection from yeast that primarily affects humans. Due to advertisements on television and radio, we commonly think of vaginal yeast infections whenever the topic of yeast infections pops up, but a yeast infection can take hold in any warm, moist part of the body where the candida fungus is present. If you suffer from this unwanted condition, then you’re fully aware of how frustrating and embarrassing it can be. Thankfully, our infrared sauna technology is here to help.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Candidiasis

Infrared saunas may help to clear up candidiasis and yeast infections by getting at the source of the problem. Infrared saunas tackle candidiasis in several interesting ways. For one, infrared saunas help to balance metabolism, which includes optimizing your digestive system to properly convert sugars and carbohydrates into readily usable glucose and fructose (the simple sugars your body needs to function at its best).

Another way in which infrared may saunas take on yeast infections and candidiasis is by eliminating toxins that wear us down, make our organs function at a less than optimal level, and complicate the immune system. As the largest organ in the body, the skin is responsible for upwards of 15% of toxin elimination. Add an infrared sauna into the mix and you will be sweating your way to better health. Plus, the higher temperature of an infrared sauna helps your body to fight off viruses, pathogens, and bacteria. Infrared saunas also enhance blood circulation, oxygenate the blood, and improve liver health.


Tips for the Best Sauna Experience

1. Stretch before entering the sauna.

Stretching wakes up your body, gets your blood pumping, and increases your flexibility, and these preparations will ensure that your mind, body, and health will see the greatest results after your infrared sauna session.

2. Hydrate your body.

They say you should drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day, and they’re not wrong! Keeping your body hydrated guarantees that you’ll have the stamina to enjoy an entire session of healthy heat in an infrared sauna.

3. Find the right settings.

Not everyone has the same body, so not everyone should have the same settings when it comes to their infrared sauna experience. If you’re looking to truly relax, then you may want to adjust the chromotherapy lighting to our cool blue, turn the heat to a lower temperature, and play some calming tunes. But, if you’re someone who wants to use the infrared sauna to feel energized, then perhaps a radiant orange, higher temperature, and an inspiring music selection is the way to go.

4. Take advantage of the bench.

Our infrared saunas come equipped with a comfortable bench that’s stationed at just the right height, so use it! The bench gives you somewhere to put your feet up to relax, sit calmly if you want to meditate, or provides an area for you to do that stretching we talked about earlier.
