Hurry Through That Hangover!

Sleep, hydrate, vitamin C and take a sauna!

Infrared saunas help hangovers!

Every once and awhile, usually when I get together with old friends, I have one too many adult beverages. This generally makes the following day no fun. As I get older my body is unable to filter whatever beverage I overindulged in the evening before. However, I have discovered yet another great use for my Far Infrared sauna; cure for the occasional hangover! I am absolutely certain there are thousands of remedy’s out there labeled How to Get Over a Hangover. 

After all, when you’ve had too much fun the night before there’s nobody to blame but yourself. This makes it even worse. The after-effects of drinking too much alcohol can be both physiological and psychological and are usually experienced the morning after a night of moderate to heavy drinking. However, when I take a half hour Far Infrared sauna I feel better due tot he fact that I am able to move all those toxins out efficiently.

Everyone experiences different side effects when overindulging in alcohol. Common symptoms include accelerated heartbeat, anxiety, body pain, dizziness, bad breath, headache, lethargy, nausea, photophobia, sensitivity to loud sounds, irritability, fatigue, stomach ache, erratic motor functions and vomiting. 

This is usually accompanied with the promise to yourself that you’ll never, ever overindulge again. However, just in case you forget that promise here’s a great idea how to limit the inevitable hangover you experience the following day.

The secret is heating the body and allowing the Far Infrared sauna to allow for enough sweat to detox and rid itself of what’s causing your hangover. I only spent thirty minutes inside but after a good sauna session and hot shower I actually felt better. I am grateful I was able to relieve most of my symptoms with a Far Infrared sauna session. 

When the body is heated, toxins, are released. Using Far Infrared heat, for about twenty to thirty minutes, is a superior way to rid the body of excess toxins from a specific source or just the many other toxins already within. Keeping your core body temperature elevated even for only thirty minutes actually supports your immune system, as well.

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 easing hangover symptoms and boosting immunity.

This ability to heat the body and relieve symptoms is wonderful when hangover symptoms get the better of you. Raising your body temperature really helps to fight all the toxins. 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 excess toxins 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. So, you not only can hurry through that hangover you also enjoy an increase in your immune system.

Its always a good idea to stay hydrated when hungover. Best to drink lots of clean water before during and after your Far Infrared sauna session as it will keep you from becoming dehydrated. Afterward drink a nice cup of hot tea or eat some chicken soup; always a good choice when not feeling well. Remember – a sauna a day keeps that hangover at bay!
