Chronic Fatigue

Using a Sauna for Chronic Fatigue

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Adrenal Fatigue are often characterized by a deficiency of essential vitamins and minerals. In both cases, toxic metals are absorbed and replace the vital elements to fill those deficiencies, slowing you down. While the causes differ, both ailments can occur suddenly and their primary symptom is often extreme exhaustion. That’s where sauna fatigue, or sauna adrenal fatigue, therapy fits in. An effective sauna will have you sweating in just a short time, opening your pores and allowing a larger quantity of toxins to be expelled.

These toxic metals are found in increasing amounts in our environment and food and in dental amalgams. But there’s hope for healthy living. Regular use of saunas and chronic fatigue treatment could combat the prevalence of these toxins in your day to day life.

Infrared Sauna Fatigue and Sauna Adrenal Fatigue Treatment—Case Studies

  • Thirty four patients, 17 suffering from ankylosing spondylitis and 17 suffering from rheumatoid arthritis were treated with an infrared sauna for a four-week period. The results showed successful sauna fatigue treatment and clinical improvements among the patients.

    (Saxion University of Applied Sciences, Enschede, The Netherlands, 2009).

  • Two patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) were treated with prednisolone (PSL), which is commonly used to treat a wide range of inflammatory and auto-immune conditions, with no satisfactory effect. Then they tried a thermal therapy regimen, testing the effectiveness of infrared saunas and chronic fatigue treatment. The sauna fatigue therapy was performed once a day, for a total of 35 sessions. After discharge, these subjects continued the therapy once or twice a week on an outpatient basis for a year.After 15 to 25 sessions, symptoms including fatigue, pain, sleep disturbance, and low grade fever were dramatically improved, and the subjects showed no relapse during the first year after discharge. The patients became socially rehabilitated 6 months after discharge, suggesting that sauna fatigue therapy may be a promising method of treatment of CFS.
