    Saunas and Steam Baths

    I've always been a firm believer that regular extremely hot saunas and steam baths are good not only for the complexion, but the general health. I had a steam room built in my house and even in this heat wave of summer I still take one almost every day, followed by a cold cold shower.

    Research on the internet seems to show some immune boosting benefits from this hot/cold cycle. During a sauna/steam session, the body’s temperature increases to an artificial fever-like state. This is the "fever" that Hippocrates refers to: “Give me a fever and I can cure any disease.”

    Does anyone else have any experience with this? Mine is anecdotal only but I've been doing this regularly since I was 16 and I almost never get sick, and still look like I am 20 years old, even in my thirties. Of course, more to it than that as I posted elsewhere

    but just wondering about what people think of the sauna/steam health benefits via personal experience.
