Looking for a little warmth this winter. Finnish and British scientists urge you to spend some time in the sauna and not only warm up but enjoy substantial health benefits.
Their report in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings demonstrates that regular sauna use reduces your blood pressure and risk of cardiovascular disease, improves lung function, energizes your immune system, helps control skin problems and arthritis, reduces headache, relaxes you, and improves your overall quality of life.
During these dark days of winter, seek out a nice cozy sauna, and visit it often. A surprisingly large number of health clubs have them.
