Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow. Some women endure this process to gain the pain relief commonly associated with their cycle whereas others simply choose to avoid sauna use during that time of the month.
Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “Sweat Out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore they may not realize it when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress.
Hemophiliacs / Individuals Prone To Bleeding
The use of Infrared should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
An individual that has a fever should not use the sauna.
The ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. This is primarily due to circulatory conditions and decreased sweat gland function. The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature.
Pacemaker / Defibrillator
The magnets used to assemble our units can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
It is always important to maintain proper hydration levels during Far-infrared therapy. Dehydration will actually increase carbohydrate utilization and cause less fat to be burned for energy. We recommend drinking a minimum of 8 oz. water prior to entering the sauna and a minimum 8 oz. of water after sauna use. Also be aware that you may require more minerals to be added back into your body with continued use of the sauna due to sweating.
In the event that any dizziness, light-headedness, pain or discomfort is experienced, immediately discontinue sauna use.
