contraindications of using an infrared sauna

• Medications: Individuals who are using prescription drugs should seek the advice of their personal physician and/or pharmacist for possible changes in the drugs effect when the body is exposed to infrared waves or elevated body temperature. Diuretics, barbiturates and beta blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent, heat stroke. Some over-the-counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.

• Children and the Elderly: Infrared saunas are safer for children and elderly individuals as they are effective at lower temperatures. However, the core body temperature of children rises much faster than adults and the ability to maintain core body temperature decreases with age. Children under 6 should not use the sauna and children and elderly individuals should not use for more than 30 minutes.

• Cardiovascular Conditions: Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension/hypotension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications which might affect blood pressure should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.

• Alcohol / Alcohol Abuse: Contrary to popular belief, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress.

• Chronic Conditions / Diseases associated with a reduced ability to sweat or perspire:Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System tumors and Diabetes with neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.

• Hemophiliacs / Individuals prone to bleeding: The use of infrared saunas should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.

• Fever: An individual who has a fever should not use an infrared sauna until the fever subsides.

 Insensitivity to heat: An individual with insensitivity to heat should not use an infrared sauna.

• Pregnancy: Pregnant women should consult a physician before using an infrared sauna.

• Menstruation: Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow.

Joint Injury: If you have a recent joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the swollen symptoms
subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.

 Implants: Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.

• Pacemaker / Defibrillator: The magnets used to assemble our infrared sauna can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may cause.
