GIVING YOURSELF A FEVER ARTIFICIALLY WILL PREVENT AND KILL THE FLU VIRUSES “AND” REDUCE STRESS. Sessions in a Far-infrared sauna (F.I.R.) will do this.
You CAN prevent yourself from getting viruses (like the common cold or the flu)!
A strong immune system (your body’s defense system against things like the flu (viruses), the common cold, infections and more) does this for you. Because there are so many strains of viruses and they constantly adapt to the changing environment (the Corona Virus, Covid 19), there is no consistently effective prevention or treatment strategy (vaccination or medication) for the flu or a common cold. In fact, because viruses are constantly changing and becoming resistant to medications, it’s best to focus on strengthening your immune system rather than focusing on how to disarm the seemingly infinite number of viruses out there.
A SAUNA WORKS SIMILAR TO A FEVER
When your body is fighting an infection like a cold or flu the immune system causes an increase in temperature, anywhere from 100.9F or higher, which is considered a fever. This elevated temperature creates unsuitable living conditions for the flu and colds.
Far Infrared saunas work similarly to a fever in the body. The far infrared light waves penetrate the skin and works heat deep into the tissues, raising core body temperatures to about 102 degrees (F). The body responds to this “fake fever” by stepping up its immune response and mobilizing the Th1 branch of the immune system (this part of the immune system is antiviral and antibacterial). When this happens, viruses we have are killed.
There is a long term benefit of this “fake fever”! Increasing the body temperature to within the range of a fever has been shown to improve the adaptive immune response. This helps the body “remember” the microbes you have been exposed to and to be better prepared to prevent the virus from infecting your body the next time around.
SAUNAS (Far Infrared Sauna, Fit Pod, Alpha) LOWER YOUR STRESS LEVELS
It seems that when we have the most going on in our life we come down with a virus (cold or flu) and we are forced to take a few days off at a time we just can’t afford to.
Extreme or chronic stress decreases our abilities to fight off germs. Stress increases the levels of cortisols in our body and it is these cortisols that decrease our ability to fight the flu and colds. Thus stress makes us more susceptible to viruses.
A 2015 Finnish study found that F.I.R. sauna sessions reduced cortisol levels. A review study also found the F.I.R. to lower cortisol levels which in turn means a stronger immune system to fight off and prevent viruses.
Two to three sessions of 30-45 minutes in a sauna at the proper temperature boosts your immune system allowing you to fight off viruses you have and prevent future ones from entering your body.
