I suggest you read this study at a much lower temperature than 230F, which is basically boiling air.

That's pretty darn hot, even for 12 minutes.

Too hot or too cold, a shock to the body??? I would like to see more studies, especially on the risk to benefit ratio with the radioactive hot baths.

Speaking of a sport, I have one to suggest. Cone throwing!

A telephone-line repairer came to my manor yesterday, he threw his traffic cones from the back of the truck to the front. When he heard that I was impressed with the free show, he talked of his years of training. Good to watch!

Jep, jep. It's good for the pores. I'd never heard of it being a sport, though.

The Five Star Sauna link was interesting. Who knew a sauna should face west, although I guess that makes sense.

Here is the Pacific Northwest I've seen many homemade sweat lodges. Here's some links to making your own:

If you're a Lost fan, then here's a link about the sweat lodge that Locke made, etc.

This person wrote the book on sweat (no, really - they wrote a book called "Sweat") and they have lot of info and links posted here:

"Here is the Pacific Northwest" should be <Here in the Pacific Northwest>, but you knew that.

It's the cool thing about neuroscience. I never knew you wrote 'is' until you pointed it out. Brains are self-correcting, I suppose, unless the errors are annoying.
