Negative Side Effects Of The Far Infrared Sauna… Are There Any?

The truth is, there are a few negative side effects that you should be aware of.

And, as I’ve said before, you should always consult your doctor..

I would call on a doctor that uses “Infrared Sauna therapy” in his (or her) practice.

They will be much more up-to-date about all the wonderful benefits that are in store for you. Most other doctors will not have a clue of what you’re talking about.

They would rather just give you a pill and send you on your way.

What I’ve learned is, even though you may be on certain medications – or you may have certain medical conditions – you’ll still be able to benefit from this technology.

In most cases they will dramatically help what is ailing you in the first place.

I only recommend you consult a doctor first, because I want you to be safe.

But, I can tell you from experience, most people don’t. They invest in one – benefit immensely – and are just fine.

Here are a few things to be cautious about:

You are going to sweat profusely. It is an absolute must that you drink water before your sessions – during your sessions – and after each and every session.

This is the #1 side effect… Dehydration.

When you sweat this much you take out a lot of the bad toxins and heavy metals. But, you will also take away an abundance of vital nutrients that your body must have to operate correctly.

Think of your body as a car. When your gas tank is empty what do you do?

You stop immediately and put gas in it, otherwise you’re going to be stranded. Water is the gas for your body… and… if you don’t keep it full – you will have problems.

If it gets bad enough it can lead to you having a heat stroke.

So, once again, keep yourself VERY hydrated.

If you stop sweating at any time during one of your sessions – stop and get out immediately. This is the first stage of dehydration… this could lead to a heat stroke.

Less common infrared sauna side effects…

– Be very careful if you have what is known as Adrenal Suppression. This is where your body does not respond well to heat. Or, if you are a Hemophiliac (predisposition to hemorrhage).

– In some cases SLE (systemic lupus erythematous), or Multiple sclerosis can be hazardous. But my research shows those are few and far between.

Usually this therapy will do nothing but help you.

If you’re doing your own research you may also run across a few other side effects such as…

Being pregnant or nursing. During your menstrual cycle. If you have acute joint injuries, artificial joints or metal pins. Enclosed infections like dental – joints – tissue. An abundance of prescription drugs.

Some even say silicone implants may melt at higher temperatures!

I personally have seen no evidence of any of these being hazardous side effects. I can only say that about investing in a high-quality unit though.

Purchasing a cheap one, may result in many more undiscovered negative side effects.

The vast majority of people will do nothing but benefit from regular use. Even if you have a medical conditions. In fact, many health related medical conditions wouldn’t be an issue at all if they were using far infrared sauna therapy sooner.

But, it’s never too late to start. As I said, just be sure you invest in a  top-notch unit. That’s where you will really see and feel the benefits. This alone will help you steer clear of almost any negative side effects.

But, do me a favor: If you suffer from medical conditions give your doctor a quick call. It’ll make me feel better.

After you have consulted your doctor… and… you’re looking at investing in a high quality unit for a fair price… I would recommend you check out Greg Baumgartner’s infrared sauna website.

Not only do they carry far infrared saunas but they also have top quality full spectrum infrared saunas. Which combine the different frequencies. This helps with health and anti-aging.
