of Steam Room Benefits:
In a steam room, wet
heat opens the pores of your skin to aid body detoxification. A steam
generator is used to create water vapor at high levels of humidity.
The heat and humidity may bring health benefits ranging from aiding
stress relief, to body cleansing, to soothing aching muscles or arthritis.
This article will highlight the main benefits and the importance of
using a steam room.
The average body has
approximately 2.6 million sweat glands. The body only has four ways
to excrete toxins; urine, feces, respiration and perspiration. During
a steam room session the body can sweat out up to 30% of its toxins
that have built up. Studies have shown that environmental chemicals
and poor diet cause 95% of cancers, which in today's society makes a
steam room a very healthy and practical addition to the home.
Heat from the steam causes
the heart to beat faster and harder in an attempt to cool the body,
causing blood to flood even the smallest capillaries. Increased blood
flow to these tiny capillaries (just under the skins surface) causes
the skin to glow and look healthy because the blood cells carry minerals,
vitamins and oxygen: vital for a healthy body. In addition, this increases
the rate of body metabolism.
Hyperthermia refers to
an elevation of core body temperature to above 37.2°C for therapeutic
purposes. During a steam room session the body temperature rises and
when the body temperature rises it is called a fever (elevation of body
temperature above the normal level). A virus can only usually survive
within a narrow temperature range. Therefore an increase in body temperature
may either stunt the virus' multiplication or kill the virus. Fever
triggers the body to release white blood cells, antibodies and a protein
called interferon. The white blood cells, which are produced in the
bone marrow, help to defend the body against infectious diseases and
foreign materials. Antibodies are proteins which help protect against
disease-causing micro-organisms whilst interferon is any group of proteins
produced by cells in the body in response to an attack by a virus.
Steam inhalation supports
mucosal secretions in the respiratory system and helps to open up the
airways therefore reducing respiration resistance. This helps to relieve
the discomfort of asthma and allergies. Steam room benefits also include
relieving inflammation and congestion of upper respiratory mucous membranes.
It also helps to loosen secretions, stimulate the discharge of mucous
from the throat and lungs (natural expectorant) and keeps mucous membranes
from excessive drying.
Heat from the steam causes
the muscles to relax, widening the blood vessels, allowing more oxygen
to flow to them, releasing their tension. The heat also gives relief
to sufferers of arthritis. The heat from the steam causes the whole
body to relax; this experience melts away stress and soothes the mind
