Quality of life while living with Crohn’s disease can be maintained with regular use of an infrared sauna. The light waves improve circulation and stimulate healing, reducing inflammation.

The Effects of Crohn’s Disease

Crohn’s disease irritates the intestinal tract, leading to a variety of symptoms ranging from annoying to incredibly painful, including cramping and diarrhea. The inflammation caused by long-term irritation can result in permanent internal damage. While right now there is no cure for Crohn’s disease, there are ways to reduce symptoms and even put it into remission.

Far Infrared Sauna Benefits for those with Crohn’s Disease

Far infrared saunas use light waves to heat cells and tissues deep beneath the skin. The heat soothes inflammation and stimulates muscle recovery. Irritation inside the body, like what happens with Crohn’s disease, leads to inflammation, the body’s natural method for healing itself. However, inflammation can be uncomfortable and should be treated along with the root cause to keep the body healthy and balanced.

Infrared Saunas Help Reduce Inflammation

Healing root causes of inflammation helps relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of Crohn’s disease. When the intestinal tract has a chance to heal from irritation, it allows the inflammation surrounding the tract to subside. Though diet can play a large role in the initial irritation of Crohn’s disease, addressing the discomfort of inflammation once it’s there is important to live a better quality of life. Regular use of an infrared sauna can be an effective treatment for Crohn’s disease.

As the light waves heat the body’s core temperature, they increase blood flow, boost metabolism, and eliminate environmental toxins through sweat. Because the light waves heat the cells underneath the skin and not the air around you, it is more comfortable to use than some other types of saunas. Using the infrared sauna for about 15 – 30 minutes a day can provide many health benefits and relief from the painful symptoms of Crohn’s disease ( ). Consult your doctor before starting your infrared sauna routine.
