People have used saunas and sweat lodges for thousands of years all around the world, and sweating out toxins is only part of the reason. Deeper health benefits from saunas don’t just lie in detoxification. You can actually boost your immune system, too, by using a few added techniques. The sauna enhances circulation and oxygenates the cells, tissues and organs. It increases the body’s ability to produce energy, which promotes healing. At the same time, heating the tissues speeds up the metabolism. Your cells are gradually capable of eliminating toxins much more effectively.

Though sauna use is generally considered safe, anyone considering sauna use should check with a doctor or medical professional first, as some people can have genetic conditions that can lead to over-heating and health problems from sauna use. Common sense cautions also include avoiding direct contact with heating elements to avoid burns, not using a sauna for more than the recommended amount of time, or using a sauna after alcohol use or exercise.
