1) Cardiovascular Conditions

Individuals   with   cardiovascular   conditions   or   problems   (hypertension   /   hypo tension),   congestive   heart   failure,   impaired   coronary   circulation   or   those who   are   taking   medications,   which   might   affect   blood   pressure,   should exercise   extreme   caution   when   exposed   to   prolonged   heat.   Heat   stress increases   cardiac   output,   blood   flow,   in   an   effort   to   transfer   internal body   heat   to   the   outside   environment   via   the   skin   (perspiration)   and respiratory   system.   This   takes   place   primarily   due   to   major   changes in   the   heart   rate,   which   has   the   potential   to   increase   by   thirty   (30) beats     per     minute     for     each     degree     increase     in     core     body temperature.

2) Medications

Individuals   who   are   using   prescription   drugs   should   seek   the   advice   of their   personal   physician   or   a   pharmacist   for   possible   changes   in   the drugs   effect   when   the   body   is   exposed   to   Far   infrared   waves   or   elevated body   temperature.   Diuretics,   barbiturates   and   beta-blockers   may   impair the   body’s   natural   heat   loss   mechanisms.   Some   over   the   counter   drugs such   as   antihistamines   may   also   cause   the   body   to   be   more   prone   to   heat stroke.

3) Children

The   core   body   temperature   of   children   rises   much   faster   than   adults.   This occurs   due   to   a   higher   metabolic   rate   per   body   mass,   limited   circulatory   adaptation   to   increased cardiac   demands   and   the   inability   to   regulate   body   temperature   by   sweating.   Consult   with   the child’s Pediatrician before using the sauna.

4) Saunas & The Elderly

The    ability    to    maintain    core    body    temperature    decreases    with    age.    This    is    primarily    due    to circulatory   conditions   and   decreased   sweat   gland   function.   The   body   must   be   able   to   activate   its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature.

5) Alcohol / Alcohol Abuse

Contrary    to    popular    belief,    it    is    not    advisable    to    attempt    to    “Sweat    Out”    a    hangover.   Alcohol intoxication   decreases   a   person’s   judgement;   therefore   they   may   not   realize   it   when   the   body   has   a negative    reaction    to    high    heat.   Alcohol    also    increases    the    heart    rate,    which    may    be    further increased by heat stress.

6) Chronic Conditions

Diseases   Associated   with   a   Reduced   Ability   To   Sweat   Or   Perspire:   Multiple   Sclerosis,   Central Nervous   System   Tumours   and   Diabetes   with   Neuropathology   are   conditions   that   are   associated with impaired sweating.

7) Hemophiliacs

Individuals   Prone   To   Bleeding:   The   use   of   Infrared   saunas   should   be   avoided   by   anyone   who   is predisposed to bleeding

8) Fever

Individuals should not use the sauna when they have a fever.

9) Insensitivity to Heat

An individual that has insensitivity to heat should not use a sauna.

10) Pregnancy

Pregnant   women   should   consult   a   physician   before   using   a   sauna   because   foetal   damage   can occur with a certain elevated of the body temperature.

11) Joint Injury

If   you   have   a   recent   (acute)   joint   injury,   it   should   not   be   heated   for   the   first   48   hours   after   an   injury or   until   the   hot   and   swollen   symptoms   subside.   If   you   have   a   joint   or   joints   that   are   chronically   hot and   swollen,   these   joints   may   respond   poorly   to   vigorous   heating   of   any   kind.   Vigorous   heating   is strictly   contra-indicated   in   cases   of   enclosed   infections   be   they   dental,   in   joints   or   in   any   other tissues.

12) Implants

Metal   pins,   rods,   artificial   joints   or   any   other   surgical   implants   generally   reflect   Far   infrared   waves and   thus   are   not   heated   by   this   system,   nevertheless   you   should   consult   your   surgeon   prior   to   using an    Infrared    Sauna.    Certainly,    the    usage    of    an    Infrared    Sauna    must    be    discontinued    if    you experience   pain   near   any   such   implants.   Silicone   does   absorb   Far   infrared   energy.   Implanted silicone   or   silicone   prostheses   for   nose   or   ear   replacement   may   be   warmed   by   the   Far   infrared waves.   Since   silicone   melts   at   over   200°C   (392°F),   it   should   not   be   adversely   affected   by   the   usage of   Infrared   saunas.   It   is   still   advised   that   you   check   with   your   surgeon   and   possibly   a   representative from the implant manufacturer to be certain.
Avoid going into the sauna if you have any of the following:
