Infrared Saunas And Duodenal Ulcers

Duodenal ulcers can be a painful condition with problematic complications.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Duodenal Ulcers

A natural way to possibly get yourself healthy from duodenal ulcers is to spend some time in an infrared sauna. The rays from a Good Health Saunas' infrared sauna penetrate the body and cause a brief, but beneficial, increase in body temperature, which induces an artificial fever and mimics the body’s natural mechanism to boost the immune system. 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, ulcer-causing bacteria can be removed from the body naturally before they do any further damage. An infrared sauna can even be helpful if ulcers worsen and cause obstruction or blockage. In an infrared sauna, heat may penetrate the body 1-2 inches, warming the body from the inside and may improve blood circulation. Increased blood flow may help relieve the swelling and scarring causing the obstruction.


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.
