Sweating can be uncomfortable and sticky. It can drench your clothing on a hot day or after a workout. It’s connected with waking up from a bad dream, and worrying about some upcoming event. There are however some major benefits of sweating:
* Sweating speeds up metabolic processes of vital organs and inhabits the growth of pathogenic bacteria and viruses. The vital organs and glands (including endocrine and sex glands) are stimulated to increased activity.
* Sweating Creates a fever reaction that kills potentially dangerous viruses/bacteria and increase the number of leukocytes in the blood, thereby strengthening the immune system.
* Sweating Places demands upon the cardiovascular system, making the heart pump harder and producing a drop in diastolic blood pressure.
* Sweating Stimulates vasodilation of peripheral vessels, which relieves pain and speeds healing of sprains, strains, bursitis, peripheral vascular diseases, arthritis and muscle pain.
*Sweating Promotes relaxation, thereby lending a feeling of well-being.
