Treat Summer Allergies with a Sauna

Summer allergies are bad this year. Everyone seems to be sneezing, coughing, you name it. Whatever the explanation is for allergies being worse this summer, it a seasonal bummer that can really get you down. Summer allergies are not fun, and no one has time for them. So, it’s time to treat summer allergies with a sauna.

Save Your Sneezing

No one has time to be sick, even if it’s just allergies. That has always been the case, but now it’s even more awkward. Even though the pandemic is more under control than it was a year ago, eventually your sneezing is going to turn into a cough. And your cough is going to turn into a frantic explanation. Save yourself the time of explaining and not getting work done because you’re blowing your nose. Treat your summer allergies with a sauna.

You easily spend more than 40 minutes a day dealing with your allergies, right? Well, what if you could keep that from happening by spending just 40 minutes in a sauna? Studies have shown that spending 40 minutes each morning in the sauna greatly improves allergy symptoms. 

That may seem like a lot of time in the morning. You don’t have 40 extra minutes to spare — those are for sleeping! You don’t want to spend them all hot and sweaty. But, you don’t have to spend 40 minutes straight in the sauna. Try breaking it up into 10-15 minute sessions. Spend 15 minutes in the sauna, then do your morning facial routine. Then another 15 minutes in a sauna, followed by getting your breakfast and lunch ready. Lastly, spend 10 minutes in the sauna, then get ready to go for the day! It’s as easy as just sitting in the sauna instead of pressing snooze.

How Does It Work?

This information is great, but it’s hard to believe a sauna will actually help your allergies if you don’t know how it works, right? Let us show you just how wonderful and easy sauna use can be. Basically, the infrared heat from the sauna helps improve your circulation. It gets your blood moving and boosts your immune system, which helps your body deal with the allergens once your sauna session is over.

The heat of your sauna is soothing to sinuses and head congestion. Plus, the heat helps detox your body through sweating. When you detox in a sauna, the allergens are detoxed with everything else (like oils). Because of this, an infrared sauna won’t necessarily prevent or cure allergies. However, it will help ease and relieve allergy symptoms so that you can last through the day. You can definitely treat summer allergies with a sauna. 

Choosing a Sauna for Allergies

When one of your main purposes for buying a sauna is to treat summer allergies, you want to make sure you’re getting the right kind of sauna for your needs. The cited study above recommends an infrared sauna for allergy treatment. If you come to SpaExpo in Austin, we can help you pick out and design a Finnleo® custom cut infrared sauna so you can start treating your allergies right away.
