Homemade Sauna

Hydrotherapy has been used in history to treat a number of conditions, including influenza, typhoid fever, and pneumonia.[1] Water can store heat more than any other substance and can give off heat without greatly changing temperature. Water is non-irritating, non-allergenic, has solvent and nutritive properties, and is inexpensive. Hydrotherapy’s mode of action affects the respiratory system, nervous system, circulatory system, digestive system, mood, and immune system.[2] [3]


Step 1

Boil 16 cups water in a large pot.

Step 2
