I’m always looking for ways towards better health – ways that are safe and which tackle some of the ailments that we all suffer with, such as toxins. I love visiting saunas, as I’ve said many times, but I always tell people who are trying it for the first time to take a friend along, particularly if you have any kind of health condition. If you are new to the sauna experience, my advice to you would be don’t spender longer than 20 minutes in a near infrared lamp sauna. It goes without saying that something new to you should be approached with caution.
Start with just your 20 minutes. Some people love the sauna and want to spend far longer in it, but don’t do this for your first visits because it simply causes too many reactions. After a couple of weeks, you can slowly increase to 30 or 40 minutes. Drink fresh spring water before your sauna session to replace all those minerals you’ll lose in sweating. If you’re with a friend and you’re feeling a bit faint, your face turns red or your heart starts racing, these are indications of overheating and its time to exit the sauna and to have a shower. The point I’m trying to make is sauna’s are massively tempting, but if you’re a newbie, just be cautious at first.
