Now as we are in the business of selling quality hot tubs, then having evidence to show that hot tubs are good for your health has to be good for business. But it is also fantastic news for you, the hot tub owner, for two great reasons and not just one. Not only will your hot tub be good for your health but you have a wholly legitimate reason for buying one, whereas before your only excuse was for reasons of self-indulgence!
In the Mail Online there is an excellent article on “The good bath guide” and to quote the most important part of the article:
“One study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that diabetics who spent just half an hour in a hot tub could reduce their blood sugar levels by around 13 per cent - as the heat dilated their blood vessels, blood-flow improved and the body made better use of its insulin, the hormone that converts blood sugar into energy.
A separate Japanese study showed that 10 minutes in a warm bath improved cardiovascular health in elderly men and women, helping them to cope better in exercise tests and reducing pain.
Previous research had suggested that hot baths could be dangerous for heart disease patients, because they temporarily increase blood pressure.
Now a new book, 48 Hours to a Healthier Life, claims baths can be used as a simple-form of hydrotherapy to keep the body in mint condition and reduce the risk of illness.
'I heartily recommend bathing,' says the book's author, Suzi Grant, a member of the British Association of Nutritional Therapists.
'It can prevent colds and viruses, reduce stress, improve sleep, strengthen blood circulation, boost the immune system and detoxify the body.'”
The article also goes on to highlight the best way to deal with a number of common aches and pains if you have a hot tub, and highlights a 32-35C warm bath that will open the pores and encourage sweating, so releasing toxins. Warm baths can also help reduce blood sugar levels, relieve joint pain and muscle ache, and help your bowels to work properly. A time of 10-20 minutes is recommended.
