Infrared sauna use can help with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue System affects at least 4 million people in North America. Chronic fatigue is determined by a doctor. Usually, the symptoms include unexplained persistent headaches, impairment of short term memory and concentration, muscle pain and joint pain, sufficient sleep that doesn’t result in feeling refreshed, and malaise from exertion that doesn’t subside after adequate rest. Sore throat and tender lymph nodes are sometimes also indicators. Stress can exacerbate the condition as well.

One way to combat the effects of Chronic Fatigue is with regular infrared sauna use. In 2005, Japanese researchers reported regular infrared therapy dramatically improved many of the complaints derived from Chronic Fatigue: pain, sleep disturbance, and fatigue. Infrared therapy was used daily for 35 days in the study by the patients; from that point, infrared therapy was used up to twice weekly for a year. After they had completed the study, there was NO reported relapse in their symptoms!

Part of the theory behind infrared use for Chronic Fatigue sufferers is the flushing of toxins, such as chemicals and heavy metals that can be stored in cells. Secreting these toxins through a session of sweating in the sauna can aid in flushing these toxins. (Note—anyone using the sauna with this goal in mind should properly hydrate before, during and after a sauna session.)

Our new line Finnleo S-Series infrared saunas have been recognized as the safest in the industry, thanks to the revolutionary low EMR/EF performance of the patented CarbonFlex™ panels. We hope you’ll visit one of our showrooms today and check out these incredible saunas. They could be your first step to a whole new sense of well-being!
