Do you suffer from arthritis? You might find relief in a sauna!
July 21, 2017 – Arthritis has become an epidemic. The number of Americans who are stricken by arthritis is staggering. Millions are in pain, and the number keeps growing. For arthritis sufferers, the biggest challenge is to try and overcome those things that add difficulty to daily life—joint stiffness and a lack of mobility and flexibility. Not surprisingly, one place to find some relief is in the warmth of an infrared sauna.
Nearly 30 years ago, Dr. H. Isomaki reported promising results involving the use of sauna therapy for those suffering from arthritis. The finding were published in The Annals of Clinical Research-Volume 20.
More than 50% of the patient’s found that sauna use temporarily reduced their pain and increased their mobility.
Saunas tend to naturally increase the production of growth hormones, cortisol and adrenaline that have anti-inflammatory benefits. Endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain killer, are also released during a sauna session. Add this to the enhanced mobility that results from the heat, and the outcome for the participants is nothing short of positive. They felt better, their mobility increased, and the pain was reduced. The mood elevating effects of the pain relief were an added bonus.
On this subject, some first-hand experience was revealed in 2011 when Finnleo Saunas published the personal testimony of an 84-year old sauna devotee: “I am now 84 years old and have taken a daily morning sauna for decades. I use it to loosen up stiff joints before starting my day. Saunas have dramatically improved my quality of life and have allowed me to stay active much more than I would have without my daily sauna.”
The evidence is encouraging. There are so many benefits attributed to sauna use, why not make a Finnleo Infrared Sauna a part of your daily routine.
