Sauna against coronavirus?

The positive effects of regular sauna bathing on body and soul are undisputed. In times like these it is important to strengthen the immune system.
Find out how sauna and dry salt inhalation treatment strengthen the immune system and can therefore possibly protect you against an infection.

In recent weeks, we have been receiving more questions about the health-promoting effects of sauna than ever before. That is why we are pleased that Prof. Karl-Ludwig Resch from the German Institute for Health Research in Hof/Saale was available to answer questions about how sauna heat and dry salt inhalation can be effective against the coronavirus. In recent weeks, he has been researching intensively on the SARS-CoV-2 viruses and finding ways to reduce these viruses as quickly and as easily as possible.

Sauna against coronavirus?

The best prevention against the corona virus is a healthy lifestyle. This includes three things in particular: sport, balanced nutrition and regeneration and relaxation with sauna and SANARIUM®. What viruses do not like: the hot air in a sauna. KLAFS is therefore recommending taking sauna baths at high temperatures (80-90°C) and breathing the hot air. Taking sauna baths regularly strengthens your immune system so that your body can better protect you from viruses and possible illnesses.

What effect do essential oils typically added to infusions have?

Of course, lots of people find the smell of many essential oils pleasant, but there are also scientific studies that show that essential oils have many and relatively positive effects on one’s health. Ascent that is subjectively perceived as pleasant induces increased production and the release of many other substances in the body, either directly or as messengers of effective substances,such as the recently popular ‘happiness hormone’, oxytocin, which, on its part, develops clear positive effects on the immune system.

It is easier to imagine here the immediate effects of these oils, which have been much better researched and described than generally expected. There are many– proven by scientific studies – effects of essential oils not only against bacteria and fungi but also against viruses and here specifically against so-called RNA viruses, to which the coronaviruses belong.

The positive effect of dry salt inhalation treatment

The known effects of natural brine aerosol can be logically and scientifically plausibly transferred to the topic of COVID-19. Natural brine droplets have a hygroscopic effect. In chemistry and physics, this describes the property to bind moisture from the environment. In the lungs, it works like this: Salt is deposited. It ‘draws’ water through the mucous membrane into the lumen of the lungs. In this way, the mucous lying in the bronchi-like pulmonary alveoli is liquefied. Fine dust particles are dissolved, and thus, the lungs are literally cleaned.

Incidentally, the technology of dry natural brine atomisation has an important additional advantage. How deep natural brine particles make their way into the lungs successfully depends very much on their size. Droplets have the tendency to accumulate so that large drops form. Relatively quickly, which then primarily get stuck only in the nose and upper parts of the throat. Modern devices for dry natural brine atomisation can create a type of natural brine fine dust that makes it possible to realise the effects in the deep areas of the lungs.

The beneficial extra for sauna and infrared.

The positive effects of dry salt have been proven in many scientific studies. With SaltProX, any sauna or infrared cabin can be converted into a salt inhalation room.
