Infrared Saunas And Crohn's Disease

This autoimmune disease happens when the immune cells of a person’s body begin to attack that person’s own cells. Normally, the cells of an immune system fight against bacteria and other invaders that cause disease, but those who suffer from Crohn's disease aren't so lucky. Thankfully, infrared technology can help!

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Crohn's Disease

There is no known cure for Crohn’s disease, although there are therapies to help manage it. The goal of treating Crohn’s Disease is to reduce inflammation and prevent flare ups. The good news here is that there are a number of treatment options available that can help control the symptoms of Crohn’s Disease and help you achieve and maintain remission, one of which is infrared sauna treatment. This is where an infrared sauna may become invaluable to you. The rays from an infrared sauna from Good Health Saunas penetrate the body and cause a brief but beneficial increase in body temperature inducing an artificial fever and mimicking the body’s natural mechanism to boost the body’s systems. This induced fever is one of the best ways to rid the body of unwelcome visitors such as toxins, viruses, and bacteria. With regular sessions in a sauna, bacteria associated with Crohn’s disease can be removed from the body naturally- before they do their damage.


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.
