Far–Infrared Sauna Bathing
Celebrities love them, studies have shared their benefits, it is relaxing and soothing… SAUNAS! Specifically, we are discussing far–infrared sauna bathing and my experience with a Portable Personal Sauna. I am not a doctor. But see for yourself in the studies linked below that I have researched. SAUNAS have a lot to offer. I decided to look for something portable.
When the body is in heat, a stress response is created in the body and the stress mechanisms are activated in the body. This is a benefit of exercise also. The heat in particular activates heat shock proteins (a class of genes makes these). They are a class of proteins activated by heat. They are able to prevent a certain amount of damage that happens at the cellular level. They are activated for a long period of time sometimes up to two weeks. Regular sauna use can change your life and matches with the premise of Epigenetic and some of Nutrigenomics.
In biology, epigenetics is the study of heritable phenotype changes that do not involve alterations in the DNA sequence. The Greek prefix epi- in epigenetics implies features that are “on top of” or “in addition to” the traditional genetic basis for inheritance.Wikipedia
