Why do cancer patients use infrared sauna?

In honor of Australia's National Prostate Awareness Month, I want to briefly touch on why customers going through  cancer treatments purchase infrared saunas from us. As we may have read or heard about, cancer patients go through numerous procedures; whether it’s chemotherapy, different medications or numerous testing. These procedures can cause a lot of stress and damage to the body, not to mention the psychological effects it has on one person. Lets face it, stress is the last thing a person needs. Here are some tips on how cancer patients can possibly benefit from using an infrared sauna:

1. Raised body temperature. An infrared sauna session copies a fever, which then causes the immune system to respond and enables the body to fight bacteria and viruses. Cancer cells are not like normal cells, so the high temperatures will help stress cancer cells and possibly even kill it.

2. Elimination of harmful substances. Detoxifying the harmful chemicals and minerals in our body is another benefit of using an infrared sauna. Cancer patients take a lot different medications to help them on the road to recovery, but the chemicals can linger in your body. Sweating out the toxins is a natural way to get rid of them.

3. Pain relief. The infrared heat from the sauna causes your heart to pump faster, like when you exercise, and that releases endorphins which results in pain relief.

These are just some of the many health benefits that infrared saunas can provide, no wonder why infrared sauna sessions are a good supplementary option for patients going through cancer treatments. It is wonderful to think that as little as 30 minutes in an infrared sauna you can walk out feeling refreshed and relaxed.
