I have always enjoyed sauna through the year and a couple if years ago built a traditional Finnish sauna and soon after began going lower carb. For me it really seems to compliment each other but you really have to keep up with your hydration. I find that my sauna time is good for calming stress and relaxing and has helped with my weight loss. I was curious to know if others have sauna (infrared or traditional) and like me considered it helpful.
I’ve got an infrared sauna and love it! The only negative for me is that I can’t use my Kindle in there. I see mixed information on line and don’t want to take a chance with it…
I understand about the kindle! I do have a small Sonos play one on the floor (concrete) that stays cool so I do listen to relaxing / meditation type music which seems to help. Richards music to code by might also be good but I have yet to try that.
Oops - my bad! I had a 50/50 shot
My husband bought an infrared sauna with his workers comp settlement money and it has been the biggest factor in his recovery because it gives him great pain relief.
I hop in once or twice a week. It doesn’t help
with weight loss, but if I have any aches or pains or feel like I’m fighting a bug it really helps. I sleep really well after a “schvitz”. On these cold winter nights I can’t seem to warm up but after a sauna I feel like I radiate heat into the next day.
Agree! I prefer the dry heat from the infrared sauna. I’m pretty active outdoors in better weather and it does work wonders with aches and pains.
