Should I be using a sauna if I am on Humira??? If a sauna excretes toxins through sweat, would Humira be a toxin??

I'm not on Humira, but I take saunas quite a lot. They seem so therapeutic and beneficial. I like putting essential oils in the water you throw on the rocks.

Sometimes I think we've got the question backwards...should I be taking Humira if I can't go in the sauna.

Give it a try, take just a short one and work your way up, you'll know if you feel worse or if it good.

The function of sweating is to cool the body down and there really isn't any evidence that toxins are released through sweat. Detoxification is primarily done via the liver, kidney and intestines. However, sauna's can be great for relaxation and with UC, God knows we need to de-stress. :-)

So I wouldn't be worried at all about negatively affecting your Humira treatment.
