Lowering Your Blood Pressure

Stressful situations can certainly make your blood pressure shoot up. The problem with high blood pressure is that—if left unchecked—it could become a lifelong condition that needs more intensive medical attention as it progresses. If you have high blood pressure, you can help minimize its risks by hitting an infrared sauna on a regular basis.

Releasing the Pressure

The pressure buildup in the blood vessels comes as a result of arthrosclerosis, which is the buildup of matter at certain sections of the blood vessels. The entry of infrared heat into the body stimulates the blood vessels into generating nitric oxide that helps the blood vessels dilate, allowing for improved blood flow. As well, the oxygen from the blood will be able to reach muscles and organs more effectively.

Durations

When preparing for a session at an infrared sauna, beginners are advised to limit their stay to no more than five minutes to acclimatize their bodies. Subsequent sessions may allow for longer stays, but make sure that your sauna unit has a built-in timer to firmly regulate your session to your maximum tolerable temperature and length.

High blood pressure is like a ticking time bomb that can lead to serious health issues such as stroke, heart failure, and heart attack. Purchase your own sauna and start helping your body regulate blood pressure more effectively.
