FIBROMYALGIA and infrared saunas

Millions of American suffer from Fibromyalgia.  The pain is found mainly in the back, head legs and joints.  People suffering from Fibromyalgia are in constant search for relief of their chronic pain.  Because an infrared sauna penetrates the skin up to 2 inches, Fibromyalgia patients get huge relief from regular infrared sauna sessions.

Clinical studies have proven that infrared saunas increase white blood cells, which cause a reduction in inflammation, as well as a decrease in swelling.

The Mayo Clinic prescribes infrared sauna therapy for their Fibromyalgia patients.  Not only does the radiant heat reduce pain and stiffness, sweating in the sauna releases toxins, which have been found to be a cause of Fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia patients have reported marked relief from sitting in an infrared sauna for 15-minute sessions at temperatures as low as 120 degrees.  This allows the patient to do multiple infrared sessions each day without dehydration or extreme cardio workout.
