Stress and poor cardiovascular health have become a regular phenomenon in the U.S.—but they don’t have to be.
Infrared saunas first became available in the U.S. in the 1970s, but they have started making a name for themselves over the past decade or so. Medical-grade infrared saunas provide all the benefits of regular saunas at a reduced temperature, which allows for more accessibility for those who may be prone to heat intolerance.
In a recent article from The Cleveland Clinic, functional medicine specialist, Melissa Young, MD discusses the health benefits of infrared saunas.
“Light panels do more than give infrared saunas a unique glow. They also heat things up in a completely different way than old-school saunas, which is really what sets this method apart,” says Dr. Young.
While a traditional sauna is the preferred choice of detoxification and pain relief for some, those with heat intolerance may experience nausea, dizziness, exhaustion and more uncomfortable symptoms in the same conditions.
Here are the health benefits of infrared saunas, according to The Cleveland Clinic:
- Improved Heart Health
- Soothing Sore Muscles
- Pain Relief
- Better Sleep
- Fighting Off Illness
