Hey everyone! I am posting about this because of the recommendation of a friend who I trust more than anyone else on the planet. He has overcome so many of his own health issues. Near infrared saunas are much stronger than any other type of sauna due to the fact that the light can penetrate much deeper into your body than any other type. As for Lyme, it denatures the proteins of the bacteria making them visible to the immune system to eliminate on their own. I am just about finished with the book "Sauna Therapy for Detoxification and Healing" by Dr. Lawrence Wilson. In the book, he talks about the benefits of treating Lyme with near infrared. Because this community has been so helpful to me, I wanted to make everyone I can aware of the benefits that this specific type of sauna has for healing. I will attach a link to the book below (if this isn't allowed, let me know and I will delete it).

I built one 3 week ago with 4ea 250W bulbs. Had a good day of energy that day.

I have no dought it works. However 15 min and I have the worst brain herx for about 12 hrs. I was using lt as a detox but I think it triggered a die off while I has already herxing.

It was a weird depression type herx. Scared me a bit.

I read elsewhere to be careful. Start out 5 min or so to be sure of the effect it has on you.

I love saunas. Usually only do Far infrared but the place I went to has the new Sunlighten mpulse which can do near, mid or far. Will try the near next time! Thanks for info!

Could someone tell me the difference between near-infrared sauna and far-infrared sauna?

This is what Sunlighten has on website:

Near Infrared
Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm, without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. LEDs are effective because they can trigger a natural photo-biochemical reaction, similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue. And when the wave is pulsed, it can travel deeper into tissues. mPulse saunas got their name because the LED pulsate for optimal benefits.

Far Infrared
The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. We've already achieved the most effective far infrared heater with our highly emissive Solocarbon heater coating and have applied that same coating to our polyimide panel. Instead of being sandwiched between layers, the coating is on the exterior of the heating panel. During the testing process, we discovered this application makes it 99% emissive!

Thanks k07. It would seem like the far infrared would help more for detox if I am reading it right. I need to check it out some more.

Near infrared penetrates deepest into the skin (a few inches) whereas far infrared barely penetrates into the skin. See the website I attached in the original post. ūüėÄ

"While traditional saunas require high temperatures for copious sweating, infrared penetrates the skin and heats from the inside as well as on the skin.  This means the air temperature in the sauna can remain much cooler, yet one sweats plenty at this lower, more comfortable temperature.

            The infrared lamp sauna penetrates deepest due to the fact that the heat source is all concentrated in a small area, and not due to the frequencies of the energy used.  The rays may penetrate up to three inches or so, so the air temperature can stay coolest of all the types of saunas with the same effectiveness.  While some people like the intense heat of the traditional sauna, many find it difficult to tolerate, especially those when feeling ill.

            Near infrared is an antioxidant nutrient, activates the cells, supports metabolic processes and decouples toxins from water molecules.  Near infrared is helpful for wound healing and cellular regeneration as well.  Near infrared frequencies can also act as amplifiers of other frequencies that are in the vicinity of the heat lamps."

Thanks maverick. I will look into it. I did use a sauna a few yrs ago. I went to a place that had one and I purchased a package. I think I did about 6 sessions. I just don't remember which type it was. One thing I remember is sweating from every pore in my body! Ick!!

By all accounts, you could set up a tent in the sun or park your car in the sun with everything closed, let them heat up for a while then lay in there till u sweat and get the same benefit of an IR sauna. The heat filling up the tent/car from the sun is infrared so should have the same effect. Sauna on a budget

I see that you have head pressure and dizziness and crawling sensation. Did anything help with that?

Hi aphysical, nothings really helping, or maybe its really a slow process..my worst symptom is dizziness-i start flopping around when i walk, someone told me it sounded like ataxia,... only my left ear has the crawling now (where i found the tick) when i lay on it at night..thats also when the head pressure happens.

That wouldn't be the same. The benefit of infrared is that it penetrates your skin deeply, thus detoxing neurotoxins that are trapped in fat. Simple hot air may make you sweat but wont penetrate and give you the same benefit

Would this still work for someone who is rail-thin? Even when i was "healthy" i ate but couldnt gain. Maybe i had/have parasites?

The effects of an IR sauna would certainly have the same effects for you, yes, but as to the cause of the leanness, im not sure. I suppose parasites could be a possibility but im certainly not an expert on that
