Which medications should I not be taking if I am going to use my hot stone therapy mat for detox procedures or to sleep on it?
Some medicines as diuretics, barbiturates, and beta-blockers may impair the body's natural heat loss mechanisms.
Some over-the-counter drugs such as antihistamines, sleeping aids, blood thinners may also cause the body to be more prone to heatstroke.
Sleeping aids, alcohol, drugs, pain killers, narcotics, antipsychotic medicines may be the most dangerous in impairing one’s judgment.
Use common sense and read the medicine’s instructions. If it says not to drive a car under the influence of the medicine you’re taking, you should definitely not use your mat.
Prescription drug users and anyone with pre-existing health conditions should seek the advice of their doctor for possible changes in the drug’s effect when the body is exposed to Far infrared waves or elevated temperature.
