The Cure for the Common Cold

Can a Beachcomber Hot Tub really improve my health? Soaking in hot water has been known for many centuries to improve health and wellness.

Good things happen when you slip into a hot tub; your circulation system adjusts to the change in temperature with a slight increase in blood pressure. Blood rushes to vessels in the skin where they are warmed by the hot water, causing them to expand. The warmed blood circulates into the tissue below the skin, bringing with it more oxygen. As the heat goes deeper, it escalates your body temperature to 103°F / 39.4°C, increasing the amounts virus and bacteria fighting white blood cells, much like what happens when you have a fever. Most cold and flu viruses can’t multiply above 101.6°F / 38.6°C.

As your body’s temperature increases, so does the heart rate and respiration, helping eliminate metabolic waste that collects in muscle tissue. This surge of heat also boosts the immune system, antibody production and endorphins, the body’s’ natural painkillers, melting away aches and pains.

The health benefits of a hot tub go well beyond relieving the common cold, hot tubs may help prevent and manage chronic health conditions by lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, opening pores, and helping rid your body of toxins.
