FAR INFRARED SAUNA HELPS AFTER CHEMO TREATMENT FOR CANCER
Yesterday my Pilates instructor, Derik Klein, told me how much he misses his far infrared sauna. His current space is too small to set it up and so it rests in the basement. As we talked about it, he revealed that he’d originally purchased the sauna when he had cancer and was undergoing chemo. After each chemo treatment, he’d returned home feeling so awful that he would sleep for hours. But a friend told him that using a Far infrared Sauna would help to get rid of the toxins stored in the body from the chemo treatments. He couldn’t believe the difference in how he felt after using the sauna. Although he was still weak and needed a lot of rest, when he started taking a sauna after chemo he turned the corner on cancer and began to regain his strength. Not only did he sweat out the toxins, the heat in a sauna boosted his immune system. He’s been cancer free for 5 years. An infrared sauna is really the good sweat! I hope you can set your sauna up again soon, Derik.
In our Olympic Hot Tub stores, we’ve heard many anecdotal stories about infrared sauna health benefits especially after chemo treatments to help with pain, nausea , tiredness and toxins. Have any readers used a sauna after chemo? Please share your experiences. We’d like to hear from you.
PS: Derik is the best Pilates instructor I’ve ever had. He teaches at Maya in Fremont and at his own studio on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Check out Derik’s new website, Core Mind and Body.
