Beat the Cold and Flu Season with Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna
Viruses and bacteria have trouble surviving in higher temperatures
Did you know that Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna can help strengthen your immune system? Increasing internal body temperature is one of your body’s natural defenses against intruders (bacteria and viruses). These viruses and bacteria have trouble surviving in these higher temperatures, which is why you may get a fever from time to time. Specifically, research that shows that symptoms of colds and flu-like illnesses are dramatically reduced if far infrared sauna therapy is used in its early stages.
Fight Cold & Flu
Additionally, research shows that when you are exposed to higher temperatures, your body will produce more immune cells amping up your body’s defenses! When you do a sauna, you are helping your body build up its immune system against viruses and bacteria that can lead to the common cold or flu.
Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas will also help with blood flow via vasodilation (aka opening of the blood vessels). This helps get antibodies and immune cells to the affected area faster, increasing your chance of a full and speedy recovery! While suffering with you cold or flu you also may feel drained and lethargic. Vasodilation will also allow more oxygen flow to your brain, relieving the sense of exhaustion commonly associated with the cold and flu.
Red Light Therapy
Full Spectrum Infrared Light also can penetrate deep layers of cells to push out toxins and waste products produced naturally throughout the day. To get the most out of your Sauna Session, pair it with LED Light Therapy to supercharge your mitochondria or Compression Therapy to help increase blood flow and lymphatic draining – all state of the art technology designed to help your body be at its peak!
