3 Ways Infrared Saunas Can Help Treat Autoimmune Diseases



If you suffer from an autoimmune disease, you’re not alone. In fact, the American Autoimmune Related Disease Association (AARDA) reports that as many as 50 million Americans, or one in five, suffer from one. Fortunately, infrared saunas can help treat autoimmune diseases.


What is an infrared sauna?

Revitalab is the only sauna in Chicago that provides a 360-degree infrared experience. Infrared saunas are different from traditional saunas because they use infrared radiant heat to penetrate muscles and joints down to the cellular level. Combined with color light therapy, the Revitalab infrared sauna experience is unparalleled in Chicago.


3 Ways Infrared Saunas Can Help Treat Autoimmune Diseases


Infrared saunas offer many promising benefits for patients suffering from autoimmune diseases. Book a session at the Revitalab infrared sauna and it can help in these three ways.


1. Infrared Saunas Decrease Stress


In 2018 Harvard Medical School published an article exploring possible links between stress and autoimmune diseases, citing a study that found people with stress-related disorders were not only more likely to be diagnosed with an autoimmune disease but more likely to develop multiple autoimmune diseases as well.

Stress may be a trigger for autoimmune diseases, but infrared saunas can help reduce it. For example, when diabetes patients used infrared saunas for three months, they reported improved levels of stress and fatigue. If stress has been aggravating your symptoms, book an infrared sauna session at Revitalab.


2. Infrared Saunas Can Provide General Pain Relief


Arthritis is one of the most common autoimmune diseases, and a 2009 study found that when patients with rheumatoid arthritis used infrared therapy “Pain and stiffness decreased clinically, and improvements were statistically significant.”

Beyond just arthritis, infrared saunas have been linked to chronic pain relief. While more research still needs to be done, a 2009 summary of published evidence on infrared sauna use concluded that “there is fair preliminary support for its role in reducing chronic pain.”


3. Infrared Saunas Will Help You Sweat Out Toxins


It’s no secret that saunas make you sweat, but did you know that sweating may actually help treat your autoimmune disease?

Rates of autoimmune disease are increasing and Healthline reports that “researchers suspect environmental factors like infections and exposures to chemicals or solvents might also be involved.”

So, how can you get rid of these harmful chemicals? By sweating them out in the infrared sauna! A 2012 study found that “Sweating offers potential and deserves consideration, to assist with removal of toxic elements from the body.” Book a session at Revitalab to begin your cleanse today.
