Sauna therapy may help heart disease

(note: consult with your doctor before using sauna therapy)

This Japanese study compared 25 men with at least 1 risk factor for heart disease with 10 healthy controls. It found that regular sauna therapy helped improve the ability of their blood vessels to expand and contract.

Caution needs to be used before engaging in this therapy.
