So I went to my second infrared sauna and really find it relaxing, but so far, I have not sweat a bead. I have not done dry brushing prior to going to see if I could sweat without it, but was wondering if it is the Lyme that is the problem or the CBS gene mutation? I know that the CBS does impede detoxing, which is partly the reason that my heavy metals/molds come up so high, but does just having Lyme also create detoxing issues?
Thanks.

I certainly think Lyme and the coinfections bartonella and babesia contribute to the detox issues. In his books, Stephen Buhner does an exceptional job explaining how the different infections alter normal body functions and immune responses. At least one of the infections lowers body temperature and inhibits sweating. For the life of me, I can't remember right now which infection does that.

I have difficulty sweating too and have not sweated normally in probably 5 or 6 years now. I was told to do sauna but still haven't done it. I asked the doctor about if I did it, what if I still couldn't sweat. She said that was okay, that eventually I would sweat again, or something like that. I can't wait til the weather gets hot!

I have noticed that when I do dry brushing, prior to a shower, that I often sweat at night and am unusually warm. I am usually very cold, in fact it took a good 15 minutes in an infrared sauna at high heat for my fingers to finally get warm. I am going to continue to do the saunas as it feels good to be so warm and it is relaxing.

How long were you in the sauna? The first few times I went and did 30
Minute sessions I didn’t sweat a bit! I then did a 60 min session and in the last 20 minute was sweating bucket loads!

Only 30 minutes, but that is about all I can afford.

take a hot drink with you like tea, then drink it as fast as you can just before you go in. take 3 -4 potassium citrate capsules with the tea. the more tea you drink the better. Herbal tea and/or green tea is fine. this will raise your core temp and get you to detox mode quicker. the hotter the tea the better. Potassium is critical for sweating and detox, especially mercury

Lapis,

I never thought about supplementing potassium. Is this something that should be done regularly or only when using sauna/trying to promote sweating? Any brand you recommend?

all brands are the same really for potasssium

depends, most americans are deficient in potassium, and if you do saunas then pretty much 100% you need to supplement with K

If you eat large amounts of leafy greens you should be ok, but otherwise you lilkely need it. 200 - 400 mg / day is a good dose

Lapis,

"Supplement with K": you mean Vitamin K? I thought we were talking about potassium.

I do eat a lot of leafy greens but not a consistent amount every day.

by "K" I meant potassium

K is the chemical abbreviation, sorry for confusion

You also need salt. Potassium and salt are generally best taken in a 3:1 ratio, K:NaCl

For detox genes though, look at your MTHFR, MTR, GSTP and GSTM
