Benefits Of Steam Baths

Sweat contains almost the same elements as urine, and therefore the skin is sometimes referred to as the third kidney. Through sweating up to 30% of body waste will be removed from the body.
As the body temperature increases, the body’s natural reaction is to sweat and cool itself by evaporating through sweat. In saunas, the poisonous sweat dries out on the body. So it is recommended to take a shower after the bath .

Pulse rate increases from 75 beats per minute to 100-150 beats during a 15-20 minute sessionThus, blood circulation is accelerated, but blood pressure does not rise, as blood flow is accelerated due to the effect of temperature, while capillaries in the skin are enlarged.
