Infrared Saunas And Cirrhosis Of The Liver

Cirrhosis occurs for many reasons, including excessive alcohol, hepatitis, and non-alcoholic, fatty, liver disease. This disease is characterized by a build up of scar tissue on the liver, which replaces healthy, normal, liver tissue. Cirrhosis can cause severe swelling, itchy skin, tiredness, weakness, yellowing skin, and fluid buildup in the abdomen. Thankfully, infrared sauna technology and regular sessions inside of one may help!

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Cirrhosis Of The Liver

Sitting in a sauna will make you sweat profusely. With this sweat, many people will release toxins from their skin. This alone is healthy for your liver because one of the primary things your liver does is to detoxify your body. So in effect, you are giving your liver less work to do when you sit in your infrared sauna. The less pressure on your liver the better. Furthermore, after using a sauna, chances are that you will be very thirsty. In, fact, we recommend that you drink a lot of water after you use your infrared sauna. Drinking a lot of water is also healthy for your liver because it dilutes toxins in your body and makes it easier for your liver to get rid of those toxins.


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.
