Abstract: Background and Objectives Obesity is a medical condition in which excess or abnormal body fat gets accumulated in adipose tissue causing adverse effects on health, which leads to reduced life expectancy. Its increasing prevalence worldwide makes obesity an important health issue. A steam bath is one of the most important forms of water treatment, which induces perspiration in the most natural way. A sauna bath is a form of dry heat therapy practiced for purpose of relaxation and pleasure. Excessive intake of carbohydrates, fat, or alcohol may each contribute to increased plasma triglyceride (TG) by different mechanisms. Elevated triglyceride is common in obesity, diabetes, and insulin resistance. The present study aimed to evaluate and compare the effect of steam baths and sauna baths on serum triglycerides in obese individuals. Materials and methods: A total of 100 Subjects were screened for inclusion and exclusion criteria and recruited. Randomly divided into 2 groups Group1 (Steam bath) and Group2 (Sauna Bath) Pre-assessments were recorded before the intervention. The intervention was given daily morning for 10 days. Group 1(STB): Subjects received a steam bath for 15 minutes. Group 2(SB): Subjects received a sauna bath for 15 minutes. Post assessments were recorded after 10 days of intervention. RESULTS: Within-group changes suggested significant changes in Triglyceride (p≤0.001), waist circumference (p≤0.001), hip circumference (p≤0.001), and BMI in both the groups on comparison with their respective baseline values. Waist hip ratio showed a greater change following the sauna bath (p≤0.001) as compared to the steam bath (p=0.032). INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSION: Sauna bath and steam bath are two different treatments in naturopathy application of these hydriatic therapies causes a significant reduction in triglyceride levels also reduction in waist circumference and hip circumference were observed. Thus, the application of sauna bath and steam bath treatments causes an effective decrease in triglyceride levels among obese individuals.
