The first time I did infrared sauna was at the Hansa Clinic in KS. I did it three or four days (can't remember exactly), but spread out over two week period of time. I did 30 minutes each time and I think for a beginner that should be the limit. I did fine with that, but the first day I felt pretty worn out for the rest of the day, the next two or three times I did it I felt fine. In fact, it made me feel good and relaxed after doing it the next few times.
You need to drink plenty of water before, during and after the sauna. The Hansa Center had me take a couple ounces of a high mineral drink (wolfberry juice) before I went in the sauna. Just make sure you drink plenty of water with electrolytes in it too. I don't know if doing it 30 days straight is a good idea or bad idea. Hopefully others here who have the knowledge and experience will chime in on the subject. In the mean time, might be a good idea to do a google search and see what the recommendations are for how often you should do it, etc.
I do remember feeling much better after using it the next two or three times. I wish we had a place here in OKC that had it as I would love to use it more often. Eventually we will buy one when our budget permits it as I believe it's very helpful to those of us with lyme. Those lyme buggers hate heat and the infrared sauna is ideal for killing those buggers.
Good luck and let us know how it works out for you.
