Using a Sauna for Gastritis

Gastritis, an irritation, inflammation, or erosion of the stomach lining is often thought to be a product of stress, diet, medication use or bacterial infections. Much like an ulcer, gastritis in the stomach can be painful and has the potential for problematic complications. While many lifestyle changes can alleviate symptoms and treat gastritis, infrared sauna gastritis relief is a natural healthy alternative. Adding time in saunas and gastritis-friendly foods to your diet and daily routine could be the first step you need towards relief.

When combined, saunas and gastritis treatment plans can work together to simultaneously treat the cause of gastritis and its symptoms. Sauna gastritis therapy heats the body from the inside and improves blood circulation. Increased blood flow can help relieve the inflammation and reduce painful irritation.

When gastritis is not diet related, a bacterial infection may be the cause. Bacteria like H. pylori adversely affect the stomach lining’s protective mucus, allowing stomach acid to reach and erode the lining itself. During sauna gastritis therapy, an infrared sauna’s rays 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 immune system. This induced fever is one of the best ways to kill the gastritis-causing bacteria and rid the body of unwelcome toxins.
