With low blood pressure it is better to lie down instead of sitting. Therefore, be careful not to let your legs down.
How often and how many passes are ideal?
Up to three sessions of sauna are recommended by professionals, more leach the body too much. Especially after the sport, two to three sessions of sauna work wonders. To keep the immune system going, one visit a week is enough for three sessions. Twice a week, two courses are enough and if you sweat every day, one passage is enough.
However, it is important that you feel comfortable in the sauna. Then you should also judge his personal sauna habits.
With empty or full stomach…
Anyone who beats his stomach before going to the sauna seems to have a lot to do with his circulation. But it is even worse with a completely empty stomach. Here threatens a collapse. A sandwich before sweating is sufficient for well-being. Do not eat between the saunas and drink as much as possible (this inhibits the detoxification effect). After the last sauna session, however, you should drink at least one liter of water to make up for the fluid balance.
