Infrared Saunas And Gastrointestinal Diseases

Gastrointestinal problems range from top to bottom, and they come with a variety of symptoms that can be extremely painful. Whether your condition is acute and caused by a virus or bacteria, or you face a chronic condition that can only be managed and never cured, sessions in a Good Health Saunas' infrared sauna may be a reliable way to lessen the inflammation and toxin build-up commonly associated with these disorders.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Gastrointestinal Diseases

As the infrared heat in a Good Health Saunas infrared sauna penetrates your body fully with our 360 degrees of heat penetration, it causes 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 rid the body of unwelcome visitors, such as toxins, viruses, and bacteria. And, as your body's temperature rises, blood circulation also improves. Better blood flow can mean decreased pain and inflammation, which are the most common symptoms responsible for much of the discomfort caused by these disorders. That means, just by sitting, you can ease your pain and reduce the inflammation that causes it. Plus, when customers make time for regular visits to their infrared sauna when their symptoms are acting up, they can reverse some of the resulting fatigue. Because the air temperature in an infrared sauna is lower and less humid than traditional saunas or steam baths, a session will have you feeling energized in no time.


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.
