Are saunas healthy or harmful?

Sauna is a traditional and popular way to relax and detox.  

Health benefits. The evidence suggests that regular sauna baths are associated with a better quality of life. A new report found that sauna bathing is associated with a reduction in the risk of vascular diseases, neurocognitive diseases, pulmonary diseases, mental health disorders, and mortality. Furthermore, sauna bathing alleviated conditions such as skin diseases, arthritis, headache, and flu.

Health risks and precautions. Moderate use of a sauna appears to be safe for most people. However, a person with cardiovascular disease should speak to their doctor first. Practice sauna safety. A few simple precautions are important for healthy people and heart patients alike.

  • Avoid alcohol before or after your sauna.
  • Don’t overdo it; 15 to 20 minutes of a sauna is a reasonable time limit for most folks.
  • Cool down gradually afterward.
  • Drink 2 to 4 glasses of cool water after each sauna.
  • Don’t take a sauna when you are ill, and if you feel unwell during your sauna, head for the door.
  • A cool head is the best way to keep your hot sauna safe and enjoyable.
