There are a few things you should know before indulging in your first session.


Avoid using an infrared sauna if you’ve been drinking alcohol.
 If you feel ill or have a fever, it’s best to wait to use the sauna until you’re feeling better.
Using an infrared sauna will cause you to sweat a lot, so you may feel lightheaded when you stand up. If this happens, make sure you get up slowly and sit down once you leave the sauna. Drink water immediately after finishing your session and wait for your body to cool down before doing anything else.

In extreme cases, some people may experience overheating (heat stroke and heat exhaustion) or dehydration.





 

 

Detoxification
 

Infrared saunas can help increase blood circulation and stimulate the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins in the body.
 

Daily sauna sweating can help detoxify the body as it releases heavy metals (lead, mercury, nickel, and cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid and other organic and inorganic compounds.
 

It has been known for decades that sweating is a wonderful way to get rid of stored chemicals.
 

Infrared saunas are also used at the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Beth Israel Hospital in New York, and the Acadia Cancer Institute in Germany.
 

 

 

Immune system support
 

The penetrating infrared wavelengths from infrared saunas raises the core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. A fever is the body’s mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection.
 

This enhances the immune system, and combined with the improved elimination of toxins and wastes via intense sweating, it can increase overall health and resistance to disease.
