Infrared Sauna Dangers? Sure, there are a few.
Like anything else, a little common sense goes a long way.
For example: If you were to go out, get all liquored up, stagger home and decide to jump in your fir sauna to try and sober up… You’re probably going to run into trouble.
If you haven’t drank any water for a few days, and you think it would be a good idea to hop in for a 1 hour session and sweat… You’re probably going to run into some major dehydration problems.
The point is, most of the dangers come from people who have no common sense. I know you, my dear reader, do use good judgement. I know you have common sense.
Do the heaters transmit harmful rays like the sun?
I get asked this question a lot. It’s a great question — it shows you really care about your health and well-being.
The answer is no! What a high quality infrared sauna does is bottle the best of the sun (the part that is healthy and vital to living a long, happy, healthy life), and serves it up to you in a very safe way.
The rays do NOT carry the dangers that we associate with ultraviolet rays or x-rays. The sun is absolutely vital for every living plant, creature and human. Just be sure to invest with a reputable company that offers low EMF level heaters.
Give your doctor a quick call…
It’s always better to be safe than sorry. If you’re a healthy person there shouldn’t be any problem at all. And, almost always, even if you have a few medical conditions, it will still be perfectly safe for you to enjoy all the benefits this technology will give you.
Dehydration will occur so watch out!
When you begin to detox and flush all the harmful toxins out of your system, you will also be flushing out precious nutrients.
You must replace those nutrients before, during and after. Drink plenty of water. Electrolyte replacement beverages are also a great alternative. Drink at least a ½ cup every 15 minutes and you should be safe. Stay clear from alcohol and soda!
A few more possible dangers…
If you have certain medical conditions or take certain medications — consult your doctor. Preferably a doctor that specializes in Sauna therapy.
A few examples of medical conditions may include: Being pregnant. Multiple sclerosis. Pacemakers. Pins, rods and other implants. Diabetes.
Most of the time none of these even will be a problem.
But, above all, I want you to be safe, so consult your doctor. Most likely, he (or she) will just tell you to start slow.
So there you have it. Just use common sense and you should be fine… of course after you consult a doctor.
