Do you like bathing in sauna for your health?
For those who frequently do it, here’s good information on it: positive impacts of sauna on your health has been scientifically proved!
According to Jari Laukkanen, M.D., Ph.D at the University of Eastern Finland, people in Finland who frequently bathing in sauna experience a less incidence of sudden death, which decreases by 60%!
The ideal frequency to use sauna is 4-7 times in a week, being in sauna with temperature 80℃ more than 20 minutes.
You might think “it’s impossible to be in a sauna more than 4 times a week, it’s too much!” But, you don’t need to be frustrated too much.
From research results, those people with less frequency of using sauna and shorter time in sauna also have benefits from their habit.
Finnish news media “Good News from Finland” mentions the research on their site, and says that it is the first scientific research which clearly shows the relation between health and sauna, even though Finnish people have already known that sauna provides them positive benefits. Allegedly, heart diseases are the ones which expose people in Finland to the danger of sudden death most frequently, but sauna can decrease and prevent it.
Here, in the article on “JAMA International”, the researcher refers to the need of more research, because the research was done by mainly investigating male examinees, because Finnish men have more likely to have cardiac problems, and more frequently use sauna. Next time, different examinees, such as women, who are excluded from the examinees, should be tested.
How is it?
Be a frequent user of sauna, and be more healthy bathing in sauna!
