Infrared Saunas And Hemorrhoids

Infrared saunas have been proven to help combat a variety of health conditions, and that includes hemorrhoids. This unsightly issue can be extremely uncomfortable and unwanted. But thankfully, our infrared sauna technology may help significantly.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Hemorrhoids

Like many gastrointestinal issues, hemorrhoids may be associated to some degree of poor circulation. Enlarged blood vessels begin to form piles, and further irritation is caused from pressure and friction, which can result in inflammation, irritation, and pain. And while these piles can be surgically removed, infrared sauna hemorrhoid therapy may be a good, natural alternative to decrease the pain associated with hemorrhoids, especially the external varieties of hemorrhoids. A Good Health Saunas' infrared sauna may give individuals treatments that work on hemorrhoids in a number of incredible ways. As the healthy infrared rays and heat penetrates below the skin at all angles of your body, with our 360 degrees of penetration, a brief, yet beneficial, increase in localized body temperature occurs. This effect is somewhat like an artificial fever, which helps kick in the body’s natural immune system-boosting mechanism. While it doesn’t cause any ill health effects, this artificial fever does help to eliminate viruses, toxins, and bacteria. Plus, as your body temperature begins to rise, so too does your circulation improve. More blood flow means inflammation and pain are also reduced, and that your time spent in an infrared sauna may speed healing, a reduction in inflammation, and reduce the psychological distress caused by hemorrhoids.


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.
