For many years, saunas have been used in many cultures to relax and improve health. When staying in the sauna, the heat speeds up blood circulation, which leads to a large amount of sweating. Sweating allows the body to get rid of harmful substances and improves blood circulation, and it is known that poor circulation is a prerequisite for the development of other diseases.

Sweating of the body that occurs during a stay in the sauna frees the body from harmful substances and toxins, strengthens the immune system, and relaxes the body from tension and stress.

The temperature in the sauna cabin would be very difficult to maintain in some other circumstances. The internal organs do not tolerate temperatures above 42 degrees, so our body adapts to these conditions by expanding the pores of the skin to emit heat to the outside, and the body begins to sweat as evaporation of water lowers the body temperature and brings the body into thermal balance.

Switching from a warm sauna cabin to a cold pool or under showers and vice versa makes training for our thermoregulation system, which is poorly efficient due to our lifestyle that we lead indoors and with excess clothing on. This strengthening of thermoregulation helps to strengthen the defense system without which they would be susceptible to seasonal and infectious diseases (colds, bronchitis, flu, etc.), as well as problems caused by changes in weather (headaches, joint pain, nervousness, depression, etc.).

An increase in body temperature in the way offered by a sauna (and can freely be called a false fever) is called hyperthermia. This current increase in temperature by a few degrees accelerates vital processes by about 10%, supports metabolism (increases up to 40%), and strengthens the defense mechanisms so that hyperthermia has a really significant therapeutic effect.

Sauna strengthens the heart and blood circulation, and athletes know that for whom sauna is an integral part of passive training and which does not require muscle work. Many people who have had a heart attack regularly visit the sauna, 3 months after the operation. With high temperatures, we cause various reactions, and among them is raising cardiac function. In order to cool the organism, the blood must flow faster and especially reach the peripheral layers, so the frequency or strength of the heartbeat is increased. The heart rate rises by about 20 beats per minute and gradually rises to 50 beats higher than the initial level, in a period of 6-10 min.

By creating steam in the sauna, while sprinkling liquids on the stones, we prevent sweating due to increased humidity, and therefore the body temperature rises, the body is exposed to greater effort and the heart rate can reach up to 160 beats per minute. This stimulant is only applicable to a well-trained person and should be avoided or reduced in untrained (unprepared) people.
