HOW TO MAKE A STEAM ROOM ENVIRONMENT IN YOUR BATHROOM AT HOME



GOING TO A STEAM ROOM CAN HAVE MANY BENEFITS AS LONG AS THE WATER IS PURE AND THE CHLORINE IS FILTERED OUT OF THE WATER SO THAT IT DOES NOT SOAK INTO YOUR SKIN. I AM NOT SURE IF THEY DO THIS OR NOT AT EVERY STEAM ROOM. SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF BEING IN A STEAM ROOM ARE:

-- SWEATING HELPS YOUR BODY TO ELIMINATE TOXINS THROUGH THE SKIN. YOUR SWEAT IS ONE OF THE "CHANNELS" THAT YOUR BODY CAN EXCRETE TOXINS. THE OTHER MAJOR PATHWAYS ARE, URINE, SHISH, LUNGS. IF YOU NEVER SWEAT, THEN YOU ARE NOT USING ALL OF YOUR PATHWAYS. WHEN YOU EXERCISE YOU WILL SWEAT. IF YOU RARELY EXERCISE THEN YOU CAN STILL GET THE BENEFITS OF SWEATING BY THE USE OF A STEAM ROOM.

-- ANOTHER BENEFIT IS THAT IT CAN HELP TO RELIEVE STRESS. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN STRESSED OUT AND INSTINCTIVELY TAKEN A PROLONGED HOT SHOWER. I KNOW I HAVE. IT USUALLY MAKES ME FEEL BETTER.

-- IT CAN ALSO RAISE YOU BODY'S "CORE TEMPERATURE", WHICH IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR BODY HAS A FEVER. THIS CAN HELP TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM AND HELP TO KILL SOME VIRUSES THAT CAN ONLY SURVIVE AT CERTAIN TEMPERATURES.

-- THE BREATHING IN OF THIS WATER VAPOR HELPS TO LOOSEN UP MUCUS SO YOU CAN EXPEL IT. THIS IS WHY WHEN YOU GO SWIMMING YOU MIGHT SEE SOMEONE WITH A BIG BOOGER HANGING OUT OF THEIR NOSE AND THEY ARE NOT EVEN AWARE OF IT. ALSO THIS WATER VAPOR HELPS TO RE-HYDRATE THE INSIDE OF YOUR RESPIRATORY SYSTEM AND NASAL PASSAGES.




HOW I CREATE THIS
"STEAM ROOM ENVIRONMENT"
IN THE PRIVACY OF MY OWN HOME


I HAVE "TAKEN IT UP A NOTCH" IN MY SHOWER BY MAKING IT MORE LIKE A STEAM ROOM. I ALSO LIKE THE CONVENIENCE OF THE PRIVACY OF MY HOME, NOT HAVING TO DRIVE TO A STEAM ROOM AND THEN BACK, AND IT IS A LOT CHEAPER THAN HAVING TO PAY FOR A MEMBERSHIP TO A GYM OR OTHER FACILITY THAT HAS A STEAM ROOM.

FIRST, I HAVE INSTALLED A SHOWER FILTER BEFORE THE SHOWER HEAD, SO I KNOW I AM NOT POISONING MY SKIN WITH CHLORINE. THE WAY THAT I HAVE MADE IT MORE LIKE A STEAM ROOM IS THAT I HAVE REPLACED THE OLD SHOWER HEAD WITH A "WATER SAVING" SHOWER HEAD. I GOT IT AT WALMART FOR ONLY 5 DOLLARS. IT ALSO HAS A BUILT IN "WATER FLOW" VALVE. THIS WATER SAVING SHOWER HEAD SEPARATES THE WATER INTO SMALLER DROPLETS, AND THIS IS IS HOW IT "SAVES" WATER. AND IN DOING THIS, IT HAS THE SIDE EFFECT OF MAKING THE SURFACE AREA OF THE WATER MUCH GREATER, WHICH LETS MORE OF IT EVAPORATE INTO THE AIR. INSTEAD OF ALL GOING DOWN THE DRAIN.

ANYWAY, WHAT I DO IS I CLOSE THE BATHROOM DOOR, LEAVE THE FAN OFF, AND TURN THE WATER AS HOT AS COMFORTABLE AND I SIT IN THE BOTTOM OF THE TUB. SINCE THE WATER DROPLETS ARE SMALLER THAN THE AVERAGE SHOWER(BECAUSE OF TYPE OF SHOWER HEAD I DESCRIBED ABOVE) THE WATER COOLS MORE AS IT IS FALLING THROUGH THE AIR, SO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TUB WHERE I AM SITTING , BY THE TIME THE WATER HITS MY SKIN, IT HAS COOLED TO A COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURE. THIS LETS ME TURN THE WATER HOTTER SO THAT IT VAPORIZES BETTER. COLD WATER DOESN'T VAPORIZE NEARLY AS GOOD.

ONCE I HAVE THE WATER SET AND I AM SITTING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TUB, I THEN SEAL UP THE THE SHOWER CURTAIN TO HELP THE "STEAM" SURROUND ME. ALSO THE LONGER I AM IN THERE THE MORE THE ROOM FILLS UP WITH THE "STEAM". IF I STAY THERE LONG ENOUGH I WILL BECOME UNCOMFORTABLE BECAUSE OF THE HEAT, SO THEN I EITHER TURN THE WATER TO SLIGHTLY COLD TO COOL OFF, OR I JUST GET OUT.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT I DO EVERY DAY, BUT WHEN I GET STRESSED, THIS ALWAYS HELPS ME TO FEEL BETTER AND I KNOW IT IS BENEFITING MY HEALTH IN OTHER WAYS AS WELL.
