It is possible for infrared sauna users to feel worse or nauseous after they leave the sauna session if they stayed in for too long, their body isn’t used to the heat, or they entered the sauna dehydrated which can lead to headaches and temporarily lowered blood pressure.
Infrared saunas use a combination of visible and invisible infrared wavelengths. The invisible ones are what warms the body, while the visible ones create the light you see.
– Near-infrared – Mid-infrared – Far-infrared
The main reason you feel bad after using an infrared sauna is your body is not used to it. Even if you have used other types of saunas, the infrared one works differently.
This occurs when our bodies lose more fluids, or we are not drinking enough water.
Many people are under the false belief the hotter it is, the better it is. This is not the case when using any type of sauna.
