Top Ten Reasons Why You Need a Sauna!~
Health care is in the news daily. But it’s always about what the government or insurance companies will do for you. It’s never about what you can do to maintain your own good health. To paraphrase John F. Kennedy: Ask not what your health insurance company or doctor can do for you; ask what you can do for yourself. The best thing you can do for your health is get a sauna and use it.
