Strengthen the immune system by taking a sauna

The effect of the sauna on the body

When you visit a sauna, your body sweats a lot. The alternation between dry and hot air in the sauna and the subsequent cooling exerts a strong stimulus on the organism, stimulating all the organic systems. Normal temperatures in saunas between 40 and 110 degrees Celsius contribute to muscle relaxation. At the same time, it improves blood circulation in the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose and throat. In order for the cardiovascular system to not be overloaded, a sauna session should last no more than 8 to 12 minutes. Due to the current situation, however, spa visits are difficult to make, as communal saunas could carry other inconveniences as well as possible health risks. If you want to do something for your health with regular sauna sessions, you need to find alternatives right now. If there is enough space available on your property, a private sauna or garden sauna may be your best bet. Building a garden sauna is fundamentally not complicated, but some facts and regulations need to be respected. It is therefore advisable to inquire in advance about all the details relating to the construction of a garden sauna. Saunas can be found in different sizes and dimensions. Companies specializing in the construction of wooden and garden houses often specialize in kits, so that the sauna can be installed on their own in the garden. However, it should be noted that this is a bespoke product. In addition, a service with specialist advice should be available so that all questions can be clarified in advance. Unlike an infrared sauna, a garden sauna is heated with a sauna oven.

The sauna sessions like a kick for the immune system

If a garden sauna is planned, sufficient space must be available. A shower or full bath should be nearby as a necessary way to freshen up. Before making the decision for a garden sauna, it is necessary to select the location of the garden sauna and determine the size of the sauna, depending on the number of people who will use it. The size of the garden sauna is the most important criterion, as it essentially depends on the size of the sauna whether a building permit is required. Regarding the building permit, there are some differences between the German federal states. In principle, the building permit requirement depends on the respective federal state, so it is advisable to inquire with the local building authority. If there is limited space available, a barrel sauna can be a sensible alternative. The barrel-shaped outdoor sauna, which catches the eye with its rustic look, offers space for more people. Due to the specific shape of the barrel, rapid heating of the round interior is favored. In general, it is assumed that regular sauna sessions should strengthen the immune system. A strong immune system can better protect the body from harmful viruses and bacteria. The functionality of the immune system depends above all on lifestyle and personal habits. With a healthy diet, sufficient sports and exercise, as well as targeted preventive measures, everyone can do something for their immune system and therefore for their health.
