From the standpoint of detoxification (detox), we believe there is no rival to the simple sauna. Properly done, saunas cause deep tissue detoxification, even from heavy metals such as mercury. Most people can safely use a sauna, but we recommend clearing the use of sauna with one’s healthcare practitioner before embarking on the use of this technology.

After consideration of the safe use, the choice of a sauna is the next most important consideration. We believe the “full spectrum infrared” offers the best value for detoxification. Saunas at gyms are fairly good, but don’t penetrate as well as the infrared saunas do.

Why infrared?

The infrared spectrum consists of near (NIR), mid (MIR), and far (FIR) infrared waves, each with distinct characteristics and frequency ranges. All three are important.

It’s impossible to deliver these three peak wavelengths at one time from a single source. Saunas being marketed as “full spectrum” only have one or two heating elements. When you think about the infrared range, you have to wonder how a single element can emit three separate peak wavelengths. The truth is that it cannot. That’s why the company we recommend, Sunlighten®, developed a unique technology that combines three heating elements in one infrared sauna heater – the “Solocarbon 3-in-1”. The Solocarbon 3-in-1 heaters combine three distinct components within a single heating panel to provide near, mid, and far infrared at their peak.  

Let’s look at some of the benefits.

Near infrared (NIR) heaters don’t penetrate deeply into the skin, but have great healing value by promoting skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. Mid infrared (MIF) heaters penetrate more deeply and are very useful for pain relief and for improvement in circulation.

The Sunlighten® Solocarbon Far infrared (FIR) heaters penetrate the deepest. Sunlighten® panels have been clinically shown to raise the core body temperature nearly 3° degrees, providing for the most detoxifying sweat, lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and assistance in weight loss. The Solocarbon heater coating produces high quality FIR heat – 99% effective in the Solocarbon 3-in-1 heater design.

This is the company that manufactures the best full spectrum Infrared Sauna that we personally use in our home and recommend in our office. If you are interested in further information, please click HERE
