Sauna slim belts are not good. you have rebound weight gain on your tummy. Pregnancy tumies can be best reduced with abdomen exercises that are safe to do and do not have side efects. Just make sure you consult your doctor once before starting them as you have recently had a C-section.

Hi I have a question about tention and pain in my chest and back of my throat. Last night I practices an intensive yoga session for about an hour in a room heated to 75 degrees then spent about an hour rotating between hot tub and sauna. After my friends and I had soup and tea and I started to feel this pain in the back of my throat. It intensified when I got home and now I have tention pain in my chest and back as well.
