Sweating has been used as a treatment method for a long time. According to researches, Mayas were using sweating rooms 3000 years ago. Saunas which are still popular across the world are important for your cardiovascular health.
Saunas are usually between 70ᵒ and 100ᵒC. Traditional Finnish saunas’ rate of humidity is 10-20 percent but saunas in Turkey have a higher rate of humidity.
Saunas can make body temperature up to 40ᵒC. With the increment of body temperature a lot of sweat is thrown out. And the heart rate increases because of the effort of body to get cooler. A very short time in sauna is enough to sweat a lot.
Saunas always affect our body in the same way. The temperature or humidity rate doesn’t matter. It makes your heart rate higher and enlarges your veins so your blood flow increases. In sauna, your heart rate could reach 100-150. And this situation brings along some possitive effects.
