Christmas is coming. In a couple of weeks you will be eating, drinking and having a hectic, merry time, but what effect will this have on your body? A great way to stay healthy during this festive season is to use an infrared sauna.
Sweating is the body’s natural way of staying healthy. Infrared saunas benefit your body by heating you directly, causing a rise in core temperature resulting in detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins can be found.
If you are not already convinced, here are three reasons why using an infrared sauna is essential:
With present buying, Christmas do’s and getting ready for the hordes to descend on you, this time of year can be very stressful. Using an infrared sauna helps the body maintain healthy levels of cortisol, a chemical released in the body when feeling stressed, making it just that little bit easier to keep calm and carry on.
Lower Blood Pressure
Drinking that third (or fourth) cheeky glass of wine or going for that extra helping of Christmas pudding could lead to high blood pressure. Left untreated, high blood pressure can lead to something as serious as a heart attack. Infrared saunas can lower blood pressure by dilating blood vessels.
It is estimated that people will eat up to three times the amount of calories on Christmas Day than on any other day of the year. It’s hardly surprising given the delights of mince pies and pigs in blankets! Infrared saunas can have a similar effect as moderate exercise, which can lower weight and reduce waist circumference.
