Infrared Saunas and It's Benefits
Infrared Sauna is an activity that has been a tradition in some areas for thousands of years and mainly used for the purposes of relaxation and pleasure, it is now becoming increasingly popular around the globe due to its promising benefits against COVID-19 and other viruses & harmful bacterias.
Sweating has long been used as a detox therapy. The Mayans used sweat houses 3,000 years ago, according to Harvard Health Publications. In Finland, saunas have been used for thousands of years, and 1 in 3 Finns still use them. The main benefits proposed for saunas are relaxation and cardiovascular health.
A sauna benefits your heart health, as long as you practice sauna safety - Harvard Medical School (Harvard Health Publications). Emerging evidence suggests that beyond its use for pleasure, saunas are directly linked to several health benefits, which include- reduction in the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythms and heart failure, neurocognitive diseases, and killing bacterias and viruses. To fully experience the benefits of a sauna, it’s recommended to use it at least twice a week throughout the year. (Jari A. Laukkanen, MD, Ph.D.)

Benefits of Infrared Saunas related to COVID-19
Infrared Sauna itself is not a cure to infections but it can help reduce the chances of catching this COVID and other illnesses.
Boost Immune system
The latest research, published in the Journal of Medical Virology suggests that the Immune system plays a vital role during these pandemic times, and temporarily suppressing the body's immune system during the early stages of COVID-19 could help a patient avoid severe symptoms.
The use of an infrared sauna strengthens your immune system by increasing WBC (white blood cell) production, triggering the immune system, improving blood circulation, releasing impurities, regenerating cells, and promoting relaxation. With a strong defense system, you can avoid and/or beat many diseases like COVID.
Better Sleep and Relaxation
Infrared Sauna help in relaxation and better sleep. No one can deny the fact that Proper Sleep and Relaxation is compulsory to combat against COVID. Research has demonstrated that sleep deprivation hurts the body’s first immune response or the innate immune system.
One example is a study of exposure to the common cold virus exposure among two participant groups, one that had more than 7 hours of sleep and the other with the habit of fewer than 6 hours of sleep. The group that got less than 6 hours of nightly sleep for a week before exposure to the virus were four times more likely to be infected than the group that got more than 7 hours of nightly rest.
