Infrared Saunas And Thyroid Disorders

Infrared saunas have been shown to aid in the fight against a wide range of health conditions, and that includes various thyroid disorders. An underactive thyroid, also known as Hypothyroidism, is a condition in which you have low hormone levels because your thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough of them. Some symptoms of this condition include weight gain, fatigue, constipation, dry skin, an increased sensitivity to cold, muscle weakness, pain in your joins, thinning hair, depression, muscle aches, and more. But, thankfully, our infrared sauna technology is here to help!

How Infrared Saunas Can Help With Thyroid Disorders

Good Health Saunas’ infrared saunas offer key features for combatting thyroid disorders, including our 360 degrees of heat penetration and chromotherapy lighting options. Our infrared saunas come equipped with both carbon and ceramic heaters located throughout the entire sauna, even in the floor. This ensures that individuals feel the healthy, infrared heat through their whole body. This heat triggers sweating, and sweating mimics the effects of a positive workout, which aids in reducing the side effects of thyroid disorders. And we all know that relaxation is an important part in combatting any health concerns, but especially thyroid problems, and our cool color options installed in the chromotherapy lighting of our infrared saunas gives our customers the choice to set the mood with their lighting.


Science Backs Using Infrared Saunas For Thyroid Disorders

Infrared saunas have been scientifically shown to reduce the risks associated with thyroid disorders, and, according to the book Sauna Therapy for Detoxification and Healing, written by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, several studies have shown that regular sauna use lowers levels of cortisol, which is the body’s main stress hormone. Dr. Wilson writes that research has shown that sweating increases relaxation, which reduces anxiety and the feeling of frustration. Additionally, saunas may help improve hypothyroid patients that experience fatigue.

Written Testimonials

Hands down the best investment I have ever made. I am more than happy with product and the entire process of getting the sauna. I am a full time working single mother who doesn’t have time to get to the gym to sweat everyday. I allow my sauna to heat while I get my daughter to sleep (15 minutes) and then get in it every night for one hour. I have noticed my energy increased immediately, my skin looks better, I have lost 10 lbs by just sweating, my thyroid levels have improved, and my migraines have decreased. I tell everyone to buy an infrared sauna from GHS because I know it will improve all areas of their life. I don’t know how I lived without my sauna. Honestly. Best thing I’ve ever done. Thank you Luke and Ryan for helping me pick the best one and making this process so easy.

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.
