Are Saunas Healthy?
Dear Healthy & Happy Friends,
This week’s topic is about Saunas. I am including articles from two people I follow quite regularly – for health, wellness, and even medical advice at times (Dr. Kresser).
From most everything I am reading/researching about saunas, I am trying to find a place where I can use a sauna for several times a week, 20-30 minutes at a time. The overall benefits seem to be amazing! Of course, living here in Bangkok often feels like we are in a sauna much of the time just being outside!
Dr. Chris Kresser shares some of the specific health benefits of using saunas on a regular basis; and ….
Ben Greenfield (former top triathlete, fitness trainer, fitness podcaster, biohacker extraordinaire, and professional obstacle course racer; named in 2013 and 2014 as one of the world’s top 100 most influential people in health and fitness) – offers 10 scientifically proven reasons for taking a daily sauna.
Next week – an opposite subject – benefits of cold exposure ….
