    i've got a headache,mild fever,runny nose. So would going to the sauna for 15 mins help me, since sweat is good when your sick im think this is going to have a positive affect also it would open up my nasal passage


    Good idea or bad idea?

    Why don't you stick your head over a bowl of hot water and vicks with a towel?

    At least then you aren't spreading your germs.

    whether or not it'd help you while you're sick, it's inconsiderate to turn the sauna into a germ box for everyone else

    Lets see, you have a mild fever, so you're going to increase that even more? No, i don't think thats a good idea, I wouldn't go to the sauna.

    You're supposed to be hydrating your body, not dehydrating it.

    where the hell do you hear about this stuff?

    is this a successful method? i have bad allergies and hayfever, on top of which i smoke the occasional whatever (which irritates my nose/sinuses) and i am constantly plagued by not being able to breath out of 1/both nostrils.

    What about a HEPA filter near your bed? Would that make any difference? It's going to filter out the debris in the air, so your body would have nothing to react to.

    I haven't been to the gym in like 9 days. It's gonna suck the first day back.
