Sauna therapy for Lyme? Yes! And it helps, both according to MD recommendations and patient testimonials.

An Infrared Sauna is quite different than a regular steam sauna; a regular steam sauna can only penetrate very shallowly into the skin, whereas an infrared can go much deeper. Also with an infrared there is no uncomfortable humidity.

Pain: Infrared Saunas can help alleviate pain that comes with Lyme symptoms, it increases circulation which counteracts the body’s cytokine reaction that thickens blood and causes muscle and joint damage/pain.

Detox: One major problem with Lyme sufferers and the pain and sickness of going through treatment is trying to get rid of all the “gunk” that builds up in every area of your body. I personally have had a lot of liver trouble because it is so overwhelmed. An Infrared sauna can assist in detoxing the body. But with this you have to be careful that you don’t overdue, and drink a ton of water, and eat a very clean diet.

Here are some excerpts from other sources:

“people who are afflicted with Lyme disease are beginning to understand how their traditional treatment regimens can be enhanced by using infrared saunas on a regular basis. It makes sense, if you stop and think about it. People with Lyme disease suffer from a wide range of symptoms, including headaches, muscle weakness and extreme muscle and joint pain, among other things. In many cases, traditional Lyme disease treatment protocols using IV or oral antibiotics and anti-protozoa medications are not entirely effective. This failure drives some Lyme disease patients to seek relief through alternative treatments, including infrared sauna sessions. Because the warmth of an infrared sauna has a soothing effect on joint and muscle pain, infrared sauna treatments can provide an effective supplement to traditional Lyme disease treatment. In fact, Lyme disease patients who were previously unable to engage in everyday activities such as taking a walk reported improvement after regular infrared sauna sessions. These reports indicate that for at least some Lyme disease patients, infrared saunas are able to help alleviate some of the troublesome symptoms of this condition, including muscle spasms, constant chills, an overwhelming feeling of fatigue and the sensation of being in a mental fog.”

“As we have seen, those with Lyme Disease accumulate a greater quantity of toxins than do healthy people.  Sweating can help eliminate these toxins.  The advantages of efficient skin detoxification for Lyme Disease sufferers do not, however, stop there.  Unlike most healthy people, Lyme Disease patients have burdened livers and kidneys due to the stress incurred by the inflammation and toxic burden created by a chronic infection.  As a result, Lyme Disease patients often have very weak livers and kidneys.  Because the liver and kidneys are the primary detoxification organs of the body, detoxification is often stagnant.  This can lead to overwhelming symptoms of poisoning by the Lyme Disease neurotoxin. Detoxifying through the skin (via sweat) lifts the burden from the liver and kidneys because it completely bypasses them.”
