INFRARED SUPINE SAUNA:CONTRAINDICATIONS
Contraindications to Infrared Supine Sauna:
As you can see, the segment of the infrared spectrum emitted by the infrared sauna is reputed to offer an astounding range of possible therapeutic benefits and effects in research conducted around the world. The data presented is offered for reference purposes only and to stimulate further observation. Infrared Saunas creating a cure for or treating any disease is neither implied nor should be inferred.
If you have a disease, be certain to consult with a primary-care physician concerning it.
If you are using any prescription drugs, check with your physician or pharmacist for any possible change in the drug’s effect due to any interaction with infrared energy or heat.
It is considered inadvisable to raise the core temperature in someone with adrenal suppression and systemic lupus erythematosus or multiple sclerosis, by some authorities.
If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the hot and 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.
Vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed infections be they dental, in joints or in any other tissues. If you are pregnant or suspect you may be, discontinue your sauna use.
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays and thus are not heated by this system; nevertheless you should consult your surgeon prior to using infrared thermal system.
Silicone does absorb infrared energy. Implanted silicone or silicone prostheses for nose or ear replacement may be warmed by the infrared rays. Since silicone melts at over 200 degrees, it should not be adversely affected by the usage of infrared thermal system. It is still advised that you check with your surgeon and possibly a representative from the product manufacture to be certain.
Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow. Once a woman is aware that this may occur, she can choose to allow herself to possibly experience this short term effect without worry or to simply avoid infrared thermal system usage at that time of her cycle.
Hemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to hemorrhage should avoid infrared thermal system usage or any type of heating that would induce vasodilatation, which can potentate the tendency to bleed.
