Infrared Saunas And Radiation Sickness

Chemotherapy is designed to disrupt cancer cells, but healthy cells are also negatively impacted in the process. When healthy cells are damaged, a myriad of side effects can occur, all depending on which area of the body radiation therapy is being applied. But infrared sauna technology may help improve these symptoms.

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Radiation Sickness

Good Health Saunas’ infrared saunas offer key features for combatting radiation sickness. To protect our health and DNA, infrared saunas may be part of the answer in eliminating irradiated cells within the body, and infrared saunas contain all the benefits of receiving natural sunlight without the harmful UV rays. Even if a person receiving chemotherapy treatments has the full love and support of family and friends, there is still some degree of stress and anxiety that come along with going through this unfortunate process. Keeping a relaxed, focused attitude can boost the immune system, and that’s something every cancer patient should try to attain. Infrared saunas offer one of the healthiest ways to relax.


Science Backs Using Infrared Saunas For Radiation Sickness

Unlike sources of electromagnetic radiation, such as cell phones, high-voltage power lines, computer displays, and other items, infrared saunas, while radiant, do not increase your exposure to radiation. Researchers in Japan and Sweden have found that infrared-based therapies are effective in treating the negative side effects of electromagnetic toxicity.

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.
