FLOAT THERAPY AS IMMUNE BOOSTERS
How Float therapy can become Immune Boosters?
NATURE OF OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Our immune system is the frontline defence mechanism of our bodies against any attack of infection or illness.But this mechanism fluctuates with our dietary intake ,changing seasons or situations. Our food intake to a large extent determines the strength of our immune system.In the recent years our mental states are playing a bigger role in lowering immunity drastically.Depending upon how we feel, think, respond to daily life situations like tension, worry, stress, anxiety, pain etc. We are all trapped in vicious cycle of unhealthy junk food and unrealistic deadlines taking a toll on our health
This has increased societal pressure affecting our sleep patterns.Lack of sleep prevents our natural restoration process of healing and repair aggravating stress,pain,anxiety and depression.Any or all of these can be reasons to break down one’s immune system
HOW FLOAT THERAPY CAN REPAIR AND RESTORE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM?
- Zero gravity and Sensory deprivation

- Chemical changes in the body
This state of tranquility is achieved by triggering a series of chemical changes in the body right up to hormone level.They decrease secretion of cortisol and epinephrine to reduce stress , aid in better digestion and clarity in thought and focus all contributing to better immunity.On the other hand your serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin increase raising the feel good factor.
- Epsom salts with magnesium
Another major reason is the role of Epsom salts used in float tanks.The main constituent magnesium helps to regulate metabolism as well as flush out toxins from the body making it stronger.With 1000 pounds of Epsom salt dissolved in water.Magnesium deficient bodies get revitalised by affecting the cardio-vascular ,musculo skeletal , metabolic and neurological functions.Magnesium is anti-inflammatory boosting the immune system.
