Spa Pools help to keep your blood flowing well. This would normally be a good thing, but if you’ve got a blood condition or if you’re on medications to increase or decrease clotting activity, the tub, especially at higher temperatures, can interfere with the function of your medications. If you’ve ever had any heart or circulatory problems or on any of the medications above and you’re in a tub and a sense of nausea or dizziness strikes, you need to get out as soon as possible.
High blood pressure falls under the same guidelines as heart disease. While a relaxing soak in the Spa Pool (בריכות ספא) may be a healthy treatment for high blood pressure, it should be done after consulting with your doctor for the same reasons and with the same cautions noted for heart disease.
Whether you drink alcohol, load up on caffeine, have a relaxing smoke, take antihistamines that make you drowsy, or use narcotics, drugs can have unforeseen consequences in a relaxing spa pool (בריכות ספא). It is not unusual to faint or pass out and drown under such circumstances. Be very careful what you put into your body before going in the tub, especially if someone sober isn’t right there with you.
Finally, be aware of the fact that many disease-producing agents such as viruses and bacteria thrive in warm water and can survive certain levels of chemicals. Be aware of pseudomonas folliculitis, which results in red blisters that may have pus. Legionnaires disease is a deadly disease that on rare occasions can be found in spa pools. Bronchitis and middle ear infections are not uncommon spa pools (בריכות ספא) transmissions.
