I want to get an infrared sauna but I cannot get a full size indoor or outdoor wooden sauna due to my living arrangements right now. I was looking at those portable ones that fold up (the silver ones). Anyway, I don't want to waste the money on one if they don't work well.
 
Has anyone used one of these?
 
Will it work good enough for me until I am able to purchase a full size sauna?
 
Any feedback on this will be greatly appreciated!

LOL....lotta questions on those lately.  Both I and Twinofdar have one.  It's the fold up one you're talking about too.  Works very well.  Very well worth the investment.  It's the Royal Heat brand. And actually I don't see any reason to buy a full size wooden one unless you just like the look of the more substantial one.  The portable Royal Heat one works every bit as well as any full size sauna I've ever used.

Thank you!

I guess my next question would be: Do you feel like Lucy Ricardo while your sitting in it? LOL...........

LMFFMAO!  yeah the first few times, but you get used to looking ridiculous since it makes you feel so much better afterwards.

Google Royal Heat and you should find sites selling their entire line.

I have one, a different brand. Mine is blue and I got it on Overstock.com for $200 a few years ago. I warm it up before getting in and it really makes me sweat but doesn't feel too hot like a typical sauna. I like that I have my head out and can do it while watching tv or reading.

Can anyone who owns a IF sauna be more specific about their experiences or the benefits they saw?

 

Thanks! :-)

Sure.  It definitely has helped with my Herxes in a measurable way.  If I start to feel nauseous and my heartrate inceases and starts palpatating signaling a big toxin buildup there used to be nothing I could reliably do to stop it. It'd start that way, then my chest would start to feel hot, my body would start to ache, then all sorts of unpleasantness would ensue. Now at the first sign of trouble I can hop in my sauna and sweat it out for about 25-30 minutes and when I come out my heartrate settles back much closer to normal, my nausea subsides a lot, and the Herx symptoms dont progress any further.  It has stopped it cold every single time. I've since read that the accelerated heartrate is just the normal way your body reacts to toxins in an attempt to get rid of them, and not just specific to Lyme. Sweating heavily in a sauna greatly assists your body in what it's trying to do.  (make sure you drink a lot of water just before and after you get out)
 
In the past I'd say it took about 12 hours or so of feeling horrid before I'd get to the recovery point I can achieve in 30 minutes in the sauna. And if I'm feeling ok when I get in, I actually get out really noticably refreshed and more energetic.

Should we only use the steam ones?
