An astonishing study found that regular sauna use decreases our risk of cardiovascular incidences, dementia, and all cause mortality. David does a solo episode to explain everything we need to know about sauna from the numerous benefits to how one should dress and act in the sauna to the difference between infrared and traditional saunas and much more. 

“If you frequently use the sauna, your chance of all cause mortality, which includes car crashes, falling off a ladder, among other things that could happen, goes down by 40%. There are very few things that you can do out there to reduce your all cause mortality by 40%.” 

“Regular sauna is a form of exercise. It is a cardiovascular exercise.” 

“One of the triggers for good sleep is the ramp down of your body’s temperature. That’s one of the signals to tell your body to go to sleep.”
