Cold and Flu Don’t Stand a Chance
With the beastly cold virus making its way through town, we bet you know someone who is suffering!
Congestion is frustrating, and when you compound it with flu symptoms, it can be downright miserable.
But, did you know saunas can help fight illness?
German sauna medical research shows that saunas were able to significantly reduce the incidences of colds and influenza among participants. As the body is exposed to the heat of a sauna and steam (in the case of traditional saunas), it produces white blood cells more rapidly, which in turn helps to fight illnesses and kill viruses.
What if you already have a cold?
In addition, saunas can relieve the uncomfortable symptoms of sinus congestion from colds and allergies – especially when used with steam. The steam vapor action helps to clear up unwanted congestion and is a wonderful aspect of the Finnish sauna experience.
Add eucalyptus to the water for added benefit and overall enjoyment.
