We’re definitely in the depths of the cold and flu season in November. You can probably travel through your day now and find someone sneezing, coughing, and sniffling…yikes! How do you guard against succumbing to the throes of your own flu or cold dilemma??
One surefire way to boost your body’s natural cold and flu defense is by regular sauna use.
A study was conducted by the University of Vienna, Austria regarding the incidence of common colds. In the study, 25 volunteers incorporated sauna bathing into their life for a six month period. At the end of the study, it was noted that those regularly sauna bathing found a reduced incidence of common cold affliction. In fact, the final three months of the study found fewer cold issues than the initial three months. This would suggest that, the longer sauna use is made part of your routine, the better your body’s immune defenses increase to help combat viruses that cause the common cold.
Why? Well, it’s well known that sauna use increases white blood cell production—your body’s natural combatants against all infection. It’s also known that sitting in a room at elevated temperatures helps your body kill off bacteria that can’t thrive in higher degree environments. Sweating that occurs in a sauna session also helps your body flush toxins that could break down your body’s natural immune system. Regular sauna use can help your body get the “immunity exercising” needed to get you through the cold and flu season!
