Everything’s bigger in Texas, including the allergies. That’s because parts of our great state actually go through 3 allergy seasons. Ragweed in the fall, Cedar Fever in the winter, and then come the oak, ash, pecan, and elm in the spring. We may love Texas, but let’s face it, the allergies can make us miserable. However, it’s not all bad because a sauna session is just what the doctor ordered. Toss out those antihistamines that keep you feeling drowsy and see just how saunas help with allergies, bringing relief to sinuses everywhere.
How Saunas Help with Allergies
Runny nose, itchy eyes, headaches, congestion, fatigue, and even facial pain are just a few of the symptoms allergy sufferers have to deal with. If you’ve decided it’s time to find a natural treatment, look no further than a sauna:
- Detox allergens as your blood circulation increases and stimulates sweat glands.
- Heal when your body is put in a resting and relaxed state.
- Experience an increased body temperature which strengthens your immune system.
- Feel the relief as steam opens up nasal passages, clearing congestion and relieving sinus headaches.
Traditional vs Infrared Saunas
While both traditional and infrared saunas are excellent for detoxing your body and treating allergies, there are a few differences. The main one being that traditional saunas are hotter, usually between 150 and 180 degrees. An infrared sauna is typically set between 120 and 140 degrees. You’ll also find that the heating methods are different as well. Traditional saunas most often use an electric heater to warm a compartment of stones. The heat radiates through the room. An infrared model uses heat waves to raise the body’s core temperature which produces the same results with a little less heat.
