    Hi everyone,

    This is very interesting and exciting, as I love all of the benefits you have explained here and without needing to take in exogenous sources of these hormones.

    My philosophy has ALWAYS been to optimize my bodies ability to produce its own hormones within itself and with my own endocrine system.

    The Sauna times seem to be very long, and I feel would be dangerous if you were not conditioned to take these long durations.

    I would begin with 5 minutes per day, and then each week, I would increase by 5 minutes for each days sessions.

    This video is almost 5 years old, are these findings still holding true now?

    Hi Dr. Patrick,

    I want to start using a sauna and a cryotherapy chamber to supplement my training. Out of curiosity, when would you say is the best time to use them? I feel like it makes more sense to do the sauna in the evening and then to do a morning cryotherapy session. I typically do my workouts in the morning, but it wasn't sure how effective a workout would be after having done a cryotherapy session. Thank you for your Insight!

    Talk slower. Sometimes you don't pronounce each syllable clearly

    Thanks for the valuable information Dr. Rhonda. I have always been a big believer of the amazing benefits of sauna exposure and I have a very good heat tolerance. However, I have noticed recently that my hands are getting swelled up during sauna exposure and I feel tingling in my hands which has been concerning. I would like to know if this is a common situation and how safe is to keep the sauna exposure. Also, it would it be great to know about the relationship between hyperthermia and electrolytes depletion or dehydration. Thank you SO much!

    Love your work Rhonda. keep it up 🙂

    I'm 51 and began growing again. My doctor is unconcerned.

  20. - Posted on December 26, 2018 at 12:51 pm

    After introducing the sauna into my training routine, I wanted more info. It is mind blowing to see the potential health benefits available!
    This video is the best thing I've seen on the internet on this topic.

  21. Anthony E. Posted on January 2, 2019 at 1:34 am

    Damn, she's so beautiful lol

  22. Gary Priest Posted on January 3, 2019 at 4:22 am

    Would this help women with Who are anemic or prevention of it

  23. Platinum Dragon Productions Posted on January 4, 2019 at 5:23 am

    As if I didn't have enough to worry about with just getting quality water, essential vitamins, and minerals. Now, where do I find a sauna? :-O

  24. Platinum Dragon Productions Posted on January 4, 2019 at 5:27 am

    11:15 OMG, I'm glad I wasn't taking a sip of my drink, I laughed out loud at that! 😀

    Thank you sensei!

  26. williewaset Posted on January 12, 2019 at 4:07 am

    Is this current? What if you are a sprinter?

  27. Zach Swain Posted on January 14, 2019 at 6:07 pm

    rhonda, how many times a week would you ideally use the sauna? How long would you stay in the sauna each session?

  28. Anthony Cook Posted on January 16, 2019 at 6:07 am


  29. Anthony Cook Posted on January 19, 2019 at 4:37 am

    REALLY interesting video, many thanks to FMF and Dr Rhonda.

And loss of muscle muscles . What can I say I love you!

  31. Gem Cox Posted on January 27, 2019 at 3:43 pm

    Super information on heat therapy.

    Lots more going on than just relaxation.

    I do some hot tub time before and after workouts to warm up and stretch. Apparently I get a lot more out of it then just that.

    Thank you for the video.

  32. froilan anthony Posted on February 28, 2019 at 2:00 am

    hi dr rhonda patrick, i saw your video lectures in the philippines , i think with dr Achacoso and i read about jennifer doudna’s work on gene editing but i love your work more on nutrition and biochemistry.

    ive been on depression for many years and just found out on webmd that depression and cardiovascular is linked.

    i like to know your facebook page cus i like to listen more on health and wellness through nutrition and biochemistry because biochemistry is the foundation of nutrition on how food nutrients affects genes and combat cardiovascular disease.

    hopefully if you could have another conference in the philippines not just in manila but also in cebu. im from cebu, philippines. i love to listen your lectures. thanks for everything!

  33. Michelle LeBlanc Posted on March 13, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    Would you
    write a standard prescription for me that prescribes a hot tub for therapy which is
    medically necessary for the treatment of ailment/body part conditions and elimination of stress?

  34. Jim Fields Posted on March 23, 2019 at 3:57 pm

    Will my hot tub do the same thing? My Vet. Don't know these things.

  35. Anthony Dvorak Posted on March 27, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    I came on here thinking that she was going to be talking about the benefits of ice cold baths and showers. Am I sooooo glad that it is the opposite. I love the sauna!!!

  36. Charles Bryan Posted on March 29, 2019 at 3:00 am

    Thank you Dr. Patrick,
    Another great video on my Finnish sauna regimen.
    I am very impressed with your style and excellent research. I've discovered many new things about the sauna that are more beneficial to me at my age then just the tradition of getting very clean.
    Keep up the great work!

  37. peter H Posted on April 5, 2019 at 6:14 pm

    Two 1-hour sessions per day?? Who on earth has time for that?? o_O Still extremely interesting video!

  38. Chris Holton Posted on April 11, 2019 at 8:03 pm

  39. James Bradley Posted on April 13, 2019 at 4:52 pm

  40. Justin Jones Posted on April 21, 2019 at 11:12 am

    I'd like a link to any studies that suggest these benefits as id like to read them for myself. Sources would be nice.

  41. Chinchilla Fury Posted on April 28, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    Ok, I'm going to give saunas a try for a month and see how I feel. Is it optimal/OK/detrimental to do right after weight lifting?

  42. The Cycling Greek Posted on May 10, 2019 at 8:14 pm

  47. Deborah Goodman Posted on May 30, 2019 at 8:35 pm

    What are the heat acclimation differences between a dry sauna, a steam sauna, and a hot bath?

  48. Taura Helms Posted on June 15, 2019 at 2:19 am

    It has improved my sleep. I went to a sauna for the first time last Saturday and repeated this the next day. I slept well for the entire week. I'm going back tomorrow.

  49. Donny Techiera Posted on June 19, 2019 at 12:41 am

    Super intellectual and awesome 👏🏾

  50. Vision quest, My stem cell story. Posted on June 22, 2019 at 12:27 pm

    I love your videos I’m preparing for a stem cell injections to regenerate my optic nerves as I became blind only one year and a half ago and I promised myself I would do everything in my power to regain my vision. These videos are helping me prepare my body to the pre-and post injections. I’ve been doing the sauna and cold showers alternating for a week and it is insane how my anxiety and stress is going down I’m finally able to sleep better this way effects that I am noticing. Thank you

  51. J. Gulle Posted on June 25, 2019 at 6:08 am

    Hello! Quick question. I do a cold shower before going in the sauna 20-25 mins. Then another cold shower after. Is this okay? Or I’m i destroying thyself lol 😆

  52. Buckman Austin Posted on July 17, 2019 at 3:43 am

    Dr. Rhonda, can a person with kidney disease safely use a sauna? If so, might it have any benefit for that person? I'm starting to love your videos, BTW.

  53. Marshall William Posted on July 17, 2019 at 7:35 pm

    the best part is that you don't have to remember any of this stuff. Just workout and go get in a sauna as much as possible.

  54. Joseph Dennison Posted on July 21, 2019 at 5:45 pm

    Has anyone study men who work in high temperature environment ,such as foundries .I would like to compare twins that work in different work temperatures.

    The more I watch, the more infatuated I get. Smart & cute…But, can you provide links to the HGH studies for the data ur citing thx 👍

  58. Zefiris Posted on October 19, 2019 at 12:51 am

    1-hour sauna sessions… oof, reminds me of my boxing days trying to cut weight. Misery misery misery XD I guess if you get in the habit of doing the sauna every day you start to get used to it. I sat in the sauna after my workout this morning and it was hard enough just to sit in there for 20 minutes. I need a more heat resistant music player than my phone, though.
