Infrared sauna: its beneficial effects on health

An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. This type of sauna is sometimes called a far infrared sauna, “far” describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna directly heats your body without heating up the air around you.

The infrared sauna heats the body without heating the ambient air

The appeal of saunas in general is that they cause reactions similar to those caused by moderate exercise, such as vigorous sweating and increased heart rate. An infrared sauna produces these results at lower temperatures than a regular sauna, making it accessible to people who cannot tolerate the heat of a conventional sauna. But does this translate into tangible health benefits? May be.

Hypertension, heart failure, arthritis: many positive effects

Several studies have examined the use of infrared saunas in the treatment of chronic health conditions, such as high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, headaches, diabetes mellitus 2 and rheumatoid arthritis, and have found evidence of their benefits. However, larger and more rigorous studies are needed to confirm these results. Some of these studies were also carried out with patients using the traditional sauna.

No negative side effects reported

In contrast, no adverse effects have been reported with infrared saunas. So if you’re thinking of trying a sauna for relaxation, an infrared sauna might be an option.
