Using a Sauna for Hepatitis

Hepatitis is an inflammation or infection of the liver caused by a virus. Each of the three types (A,B, and C) are can be contracted differently, some are curable or work through your system on their own while others do not, but all patients of all three will benefit from time in an infrared sauna for hepatitis.

In the past few years, hyperthermic (sweat) therapy has been studied quite extensively. Through this research, saunas have emerged as proven tools that can greatly assist in the elimination of accumulated toxins. Unlike a traditional sauna or steam room, where heat penetrates only a few millimeters below the skin, the higher body temperature encouraged by an infrared sauna causes toxins to be released from cells. The toxic molecules will then reside transiently in the lymph fluid. Since sweat is manufactured from the lymph fluid, toxins present in the lymph fluid will exit the body through the sweat.

Because the liver are not required for this process, these sick organ remains largely unburdened by hyperthermic therapy and toxins are able to leave the body even when liver or kidney function is impaired. Plus, rejuvenation and renewed energy are frequently caused by regular time in infrared saunas; and hepatitis patients, who commonly struggle with fatigue as a side effect, would certainly benefit from these additional results.

Together, infrared saunas and hepatitis treatment plans prescribed by your doctor could greatly improve the physical health of patients whose livers suffer from viral and toxic stress.
