Top 6 immune system benefits of the infrared sauna pod

It’s just a part of life that we fall sick from time to time. Regardless of hand sanitiser use, vaccines and supplementation, we encounter different viruses constantly. Our bodies must withstand the aftermath of multiple life stressors, whether mental, physical or emotional. With stress comes physical exhaustion, sleepless nights, and less time to exercise and eat healthily. It all adds up to an increased risk of getting sick. The deciding factor in all this? The immune system. 

When you have a strong immune system, you can often avoid being struck with illnesses, seasonal or otherwise. Even so, we know many options for us during vulnerable times of the year. Just visit your local chemist or search online to see the endless number of home remedies and over-the-counter medications you can take to bolster your immunity. 

Boost your immune system with an infrared sauna session

The infrared sauna is an additional way to strengthen your immune system, supporting the circulation and absorption of immune-boosting supplements. 

The infrared wellness sauna pod strengthens the immune system in the following ways:

1. Increased white blood cell production

The heat generated by the infrared sauna pod increases the body’s production of white blood cells by stimulating energy at a cellular level. White blood cells act as our immune system’s first line of defence when an infection strikes. White blood cells detect harmful substances in the body and control the immune system’s response.

2. The immune system is triggered.

The famous quote of Hippocrates, “Give me a fever, and I can cure any disease.” It is certainly not new when it comes to the idea that increased temperatures trigger the body’s immune system response. By allowing specific immune cells to work more effectively and efficiently, fevers can help your body fight off the infection. Thus, the increased temperature supplied by the infrared sauna triggers the immune system.

3. Release Impurities

Detoxification is a significant benefit of the infrared pod. When the body does not get the opportunity to sweat, your body holds onto potentially harmful toxins, chemicals, and impurities. These may come from the food you eat, the air you breathe, the liquid you drink, and anything else you might come in contact with. One surefire way to support your immune system, which we often forget, is through a detoxifying sweat. We must ensure that the body can efficiently eliminate toxins. You’ll not only feel better and have more energy, but your immune system will be less stressed and, therefore, more efficient.

4. Improve blood circulation

By providing oxygen-rich nutrients to your extremities, the deeply penetrating heat of an infrared pod promotes blood circulation throughout the body. Any substances that were building up get released through sweat and any areas with poor circulation before the infrared session will be flushed out. Blood is pumped towards the exterior surface of your body with the increased circulation taking illness-causing substances or bacteria with it. The heart, muscles, and arteries all benefit from improved circulation.

5. Increased cellular regeneration

The infrared wellness pod can also stimulate cell regeneration. It can help your body eliminate damaged, ineffective, or old cells and replace them with new ones. The heat from an infrared pod acts as a catalyst, jump-starting the regeneration process and ensuring that all bodily systems operate smoothly as cells regenerate.

6. Relaxation

Reducing stress levels is crucial to maintaining a healthy body since high-stress levels can often weaken the immune system. Cortisol, the hormone released when stress prevails in your body, can increase, thereby reducing the ability of the immune system to ward off harmful bacteria and viruses. The use of an infrared sauna helps balance cortisol levels. By enjoying the mindfulness and relaxation of laying in the infrared cocoon pod, you take your body out of the fight or flight mode. Blood then is freed up to circulate the body more efficiently, nourishing areas of need.

So, if you want to be a little more proactive regarding your health, strengthen your immune system with a session in the Cocoon Wellness Pod – an innovative infrared sauna pod technology you will surely enjoy.
