It’s the beginning of Fall 2016. Thus begins a beautiful time of year; crisp air, cooler temperatures and spectacular colors. However, the Fall also heralds the beginning of another season; flu season. Every year I used to come down with some form of a nasty cold or flu bug. It took a couple of months of consistent use of my Far Infrared sauna before I realized I was no longer getting sick anymore. The reason is actually pretty simple. When the body is heated, sick, diseased cells, bacteria and virus germs can’t survive. Heating the body every day is a great way to avoid if not eliminate infections. Using Far Infrared heat daily, for about twenty to thirty minutes, is a superior way to prevent illness. Keeping your core body temperature elevated even for only 30 minutes a day actually boosts your immune system.
The body’s immune system is given a huge boost while sitting in a Far Infrared sauna. This is due to the sauna’s ability to raise the body’s core temperature thereby creating a ‘false’ fever. As the body’s temperature elevates this temperature creates a hostile environment for any bacteria or virus cells within the body. This heat also triggers not only white blood cells, but Natural Killer cells, as well. The white blood cells and the Killer cells seek out the weakened diseased cells and obliterate them. This results in a superior and stronger immune system.
Consistent use of Far Infrared sauna therapy can also assist with some of these other immune boosting strategies. After all, time spent in your infrared sauna not only relaxes, refreshes, and de-stresses it also detoxifies, improves circulation and lowers blood pressure. All that and I found that I sleep so much better after even only one, thirty minute session. A good nights sleep is also effective for boosting immunity.
In order to boost your immune system and stay healthy throughout cold and flu season remember to reduce your stress level, drink plenty of clean, fresh water, eat organic and healthy as much as possible, take a daily Far Infrared sauna and get plenty of sleep. A sauna a day keeps colds and flu away!
