Sauna = Happiness hormone
Happy hormone = Less stress

 

You know that

 

The study found that participants who visited the sauna 2-3 times a week were 20% less likely to develop depressive behavioral symptoms compared to those who used the sauna less often than once a week or not at all.

 

These data suggest that regular sauna use can have a significant impact on alleviating depressive states.

How sauna affects depression

Heat therapies such as saunas can positively affect body temperature, which is often elevated in people with depression. Research shows that a short-term increase in temperature during a sauna activates the body’s cooling processes, which can lead to a subsequent decrease in body temperature and relief of depression symptoms.

Happy hormones

The heat of the sauna triggers the production of endorphins, also known as happy hormones. These hormones, which the body produces naturally, can significantly improve your mood and induce feelings of happiness and contentment.

How does it work

BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) is a protein that plays a key role in the maintenance and regeneration of neurons in the brain. Low levels of BDNF are often associated with depression. A sauna can increase the production of this protein, which contributes to better brain function and can help alleviate some symptoms of depression.

Reduction of physical and psychological stress

Saunas can effectively reduce levels of stress hormones such as cortisol. Chronic stress is a known trigger of depression. Regular sauna use and reduction of physical stress can have a positive effect on mental health.

Regularity and correct timing

Sauna bathing is a promising alternative to traditional treatment methods for depression, offering both immediate and long-term mental health benefits.
