Sauna History Title whitespace7

1. Detoxification Using Hyperthermic Therapy Through The Centuries

Methods to induce sweating have been used for centuries by many cultures to bring about improved health and relief from disease. Over 2000 years ago, the famous Greek physician Parmenides stated "give me a chance to create a fever, and I will cure any disease." This traditional wisdom has certainly stood the test of time. Using various methods ranging from hydrotherapy (hot mineral baths), to sweat lodges, to saunas and steam baths, individuals have enjoyed the revitalizing effects of induced hyperthermia (artificially elevating body temperature). Only in recent years has science begun to seriously examine this age old healing technique. Organizations such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have now taken a serious look at hyperthermic therapy as a means to detoxify individuals who are ill from exposure to environmental poisons and several good research papers have now been published.
