Immune Health


A Medical Sauna™ is a great pathway to better overall health because it can provide greater health benefits than almost any other sauna. Regular use of our saunas can speed up the body's healing process, and help you fight off infections and viruses more effectively. With a Medical Sauna™ your core temperature increases and your body begins to produce more white blood cells. White blood cells help fight infections by attacking bacteria, viruses, and germs that invade the body. A white blood cell count can detect hidden infections and undiagnosed medical conditions.

According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, white blood cells are an important component of your blood system, which is also made up of red blood cells, platelets, and plasma. When your white blood cell count is low, you are extremely susceptible to any illness or infection, which can spiral into a serious health threat. That’s why it’s extremely important to include your body in activities that raise your white blood cell count, and a Medical Sauna™ can do it better than anything else.

Medical Saunas™ are more than just saunas. They were designed to help heal your body. Because of all the doctors that came together to help make Medical Saunas™ possible, and the over 100+ years of combined experience they all provided, there are lots of medical benefits you will receive by using it daily.

Because Medical Saunas™ are based purely on documented studies, we have included the appropriate studies below with links for further research and verification.






White Blood Cell Profile Levels – U.S. National Library of Medicine

Clinical Study

Research:

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of sauna bathing on a white blood cell profile, cortisol levels and selected physiological indices in athletes and non-athletes. The study evaluated 9 trained middle-distance runners and 9 male non-athletes. The subjects from both groups participated in 15-minute sauna sessions until their core temperature rose by 1.2°C (mean temperature in the sauna room was 96° ± 2°C; relative humidity was 15 ± 3%) with a 2 minute cool down with water at a temperature of 19-20°C.

Results:

After the sauna session, an increased number of white blood cells, lymphocyte, neutrophil and basophil counts was reported in the white blood cell profile. Higher increments in leukocyte and monocyte after the sauna bathing session were recorded. The obtained results indicated that sauna bathing stimulated the immune system to a high degree.
