Infrared Saunas and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome [2020 Guide]

Detoxification helps remove symptoms of CFS

Over the years I have come across several clients in need of relief from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Far infrared sauna therapy comes highly recommended by health practitioners and those who have knowledge of how helpful infrared can be alleviating most, if not all, of the symptoms of CFS. 

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a debilitating disease affecting millions. It is a complex disorder presenting with symptoms of profound fatigue unaffected by usual rest patterns. It is exacerbated by excess physical or mental activity

Common symptoms of CFS include extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, and pain. Sufferers experience impaired memory and mental function along with the inability to sleep. These symptoms result in a decline in the participation of daily life and living.

Currently, there is a great deal of proof that heat from a far infrared sauna is quite successful in detoxifying the body, thus reducing the symptoms of CFS.

Some physicians and scientists specializing in CFS believe there is a strong connection between the disease and toxins, especially heavy metals, plastics and chemicals. Heavy metals and toxic chemicals settle inside the body’s cells, where they are stored until either burned out through fat loss or through detoxification with an infrared sauna.

One of my clients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome completed a mitochondrial function test and discovered her body was filled with toxins. Her health practitioner immediately had her begin far infrared sauna therapy, as infrared heat is quite successful in detoxifying the body.

One of the most underrated effects of daily far infrared sauna use is a great night’s sleep; this also immensely helps to mitigate CFS symptoms. What’s better is the the result is immediate. You take a sauna and that night, you sleep. Like really sleep.

Normally, it takes me an hour to wind down prior to falling asleep. During the night I awaken many times, roll over and usually fall back asleep but many times I do not. I also an physically unable to sleep in past 8 am. So if I go to sleep too late I’m screwed the next day.

After my first far infrared sauna experience, I was amazed at how quickly I fell asleep and how deep I actually slept through the night. When a CFS patient gets more healthy sleep their body is more likely to heal naturally.

Taking a far infrared sauna is extremely relaxing, especially when followed by a hot shower, steam sauna or hot tub. Infrared heat feels great and as your body relaxes and muscles loosen causing pain to go away. There is a reason for this. Endorphins are your body’s natural pain killers. This causes your body to feel more relaxed, less stressed and feel the kind of tired you feel after a workout. This all leads to great sleep.

So many of the common CFS symptoms are diminished when the sufferer enjoys a deep, restful nights sleep. When this is combined with detoxification, real relief from CFS can occur. Additionally, if you are in pain, infrared generally relieves everything from normal aches and pains to the deeper pain caused by CFS and of arthritis, fibromyalgia and even common muscle strains and/or injuries. Pain certainly can keep you awake and the infrared heat soothes pain away.

Infrared sauna therapy provides benefits to people of all ages. It is a cost-effective therapy that will improve your overall health and well being. You will begin to enjoy a better quality of life as a wonderful and refreshing night’s sleep allows you to feel more rested and rejuvenated.

One of the concerns I haven’t addressed is the low tolerance for heat some CFS sufferers have as sweating tends to add to the fatigue. The good news is far infrared heat is mild compared to traditional hot-rock saunas; you can begin slowly at a low temperature and even though detoxification may take longer—the sooner you begin to tolerate the heat the more quickly you will reap the benefits. 

For those who suffer from CFS, there is increasing evidence that regular far infrared sauna therapy greatly improves the symptoms and eventually the toxicity levels in the body leading to a full recovery of the disease.
