I have found one of the most important aspects of health maintenance is elevating your blood’s circulation. Use of a far infrared sauna assists your blood in flushing out toxins and keeps your heart pumping, as when exercising, aiding blood flow to rise from the normal rate of five to seven quarts per minute to as much as thirteen quarts per minute. This improvement continues even after your infrared sauna session is complete. Far infrared heat bathes your muscles and tissues with infrared rays producing an increase in blood flow. There are several steps you can take to not only aid in increased circulation but to also improve and help your overall health.
Some of the additional steps you can take to improve your circulation include healthier habits in terms of daily exercise, healthy eating, reduction in stress and utilizing an infrared sauna regimen. A varied fitness routine can include everything from a daily walk to a trip to the gym and everything in between. Taking the stairs, riding a bike, a game of tennis, throwing the dog a ball all improve circulation. A healthy heart pumps clean, toxin free blood through your body and it needs exercise, too. The good news is an infrared sauna session can provide your heart a good work out, as well. The elevation in body temperature from an infrared sauna mirrors the benefits of a passive cardiovascular workout.
Along with exercising your heart to improve circulation a healthy diet can and will improve your circulation. By adding into your already basically healthy diet a few new items your blood will simply flow better. Some easy additions include oranges, dark chocolate, garlic, watermelon, avocado, seeds and nuts and even some spices such as turmeric and cayenne pepper. Goji berries and ginkgo biloba also promote better circulation. However, if you do not reduce stress none of the above matters. Stress reduction is a necessary part of improving healthy circulation. Exercise reduces stress along with meditation, deep breathing and yoga. Massage can also relieve stress and stimulate blood flow by clearing blocked lymph glands. All of these suggestions will aid in better blood flow.
I still highly recommend and suggest the best weapon in your health arsenal is a daily infrared sauna session. Many studies agree that infrared simply and easily improves circulation in an effortless and comfortable setting. Not only will circulation improve it aids in reducing pain, muscle fatigue and muscle repair. Along with detoxifying the blood it also lowers your blood pressure as it increases healthier blood flow. This is a soothing and relaxing way to enjoy all the benefits of improved and abundant blood flow. I truly recommend a regular infrared sauna regimen to maximize your own circulation!
