Line 1: Line 1:
 +====== Saunas ======
 +Far infrared (FIR) **saunas** raise body temperature to cause sweating which is touted to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes, promote weight loss, provide the equivalent of a cardiovascular workout and relieve pain.
 +The use of infrared saunas is contraindicated because the heat they produce catalyzes the creation of vitamin D.
 +The use of non-infrared saunas is acceptable, provided that body temperature is not raised more than one degree or so. Increased body temperature may cause increased tissue perfusion of the antibiotics,​ which could increase immunopathology symptoms.
 +The quanta of energy do not vary that much between near-UV and visible and Far-IR. Maybe by a factor of 3 or so, but nobody has shown that the 7-dehydrocholesterol steroid ring cleavage requires that much energy. In fact, all the current pragma about UV has been based on in-vitro work, which is subject to many, many errors.
 +We know TNF-alpha catalyzes the production of 1,25-D in keratinocytes. That speaks to a continuous process, not a quantized reaction. The hundreds of folks on the MP are keeping away from UV like the plague, yet they continue to produce 1,25-D.
