Looking for a way to relax, lower your blood pressure and reduce stress?  Perhaps it's as easy as sitting in a steamy hot room!  A recent study found that relaxing in a steamy sauna can apparently be good for your health. The study centered around three group of men who all have high blood pressure. A third of the group went to the sauna once a week, the second group went two to three times a week and the third group stepping into the sauna four to seven times a week. They discovered the risk of having high blood pressure decreased by 24% among men who went to the sauna two to three times a week, and decreased by 46% among those who visited the sauna four to seven times a week. It's thought the steam-filled rooms help dilate blood vessels, flush toxins out of the body, and help adults overcome stress.
