Why An Infrared Sauna At All You May Be Wondering?
Detoxing Heavy Metals (the safe way)
That said, after I got tested with a hair mineral analysis, I realized I still had a body burden of mercury in me. The way mercury vapors leech into the body, I had likely had deposits pretty much everywhere since I had the fillings for over 22 years. My kidneys and liver didn’t look to be fit for chelation, or even a mercury challenge test at the time. So one of the best ways to detox from heavy metals, is to use the skin. Infrared saunas can do this much faster than traditional saunas, and so my quest to build a near infrared sauna began.
Near Infrared VS Far Infrared: Which Is Better?
(there is no comparison when it comes to how much you sweat)
This worked great for a little while, but once I tried a far infrared sauna that I paid $30/session to use, I realized I wasn’t sweating enough with the near infrared light array I built for my shower. While you can’t deny the benefits of red light therapy, for heavy metal detox, particularly mercury and aluminum like my hair tests showed, it just wasn’t fast enough for me. (I don’t wanna wait two fucking years to sweat it out… I want it out NOW!)
So I began researching infrared saunas, watching youtube video reviews, and digesting all the major top rated brands that had good residential infrared saunas.
High EMF Saunas From China: What Gives!
(no standardized testing, that’s what.)
Only trouble was, I wouldn’t realize until later, that most cheaper infrared saunas are made in China, and come with ultra HIGH EMF heaters. Back then, I didn’t even know what the hell EMF was, let alone how to test for it or why it was even important. I would later learn from an electrical engineer (Michael Nuert), that most of us are surrounded by higher EMF’s nowadays than is allowed by European countries at all. The Swedish standard for safe EMF levels is 2 milligauss. I’m now finding out, that a lot of sauna companies are selling saunas with over 10, and sometimes 30 milligauss levels of electromagnetic fields in them!
“Harmful EMF Levels Don’t Exist,” They Said.
But here in America, we don’t have those same standards… just like dentists are STILL putting mercury into little kids mouths, just like they did to me!!! Now how the fuck does that make any sense anyway? Did you know that mercury thermometers are banned? But wait, it’s still okay to put mercury fillings in a child’s mouth. Hmmmm.
If that wasn’t enough, it’s been said that Russia/Putin said, ” don’t worry about the Americans anymore, they’ll kill themselves with the way they’re doing things.”
Talk about some bullshit! You’re supposed to be going in a sauna to heal, not to get zapped to death!
My point is, EMF’s matter when you have micro deposits of heavy metals all over your body lodged in your fat cells. It’s like turning you into a giant antenna, and you’re even more conductive than a normal person, which is totally not good when you’re sitting right next to a source of high EMF in a hot box.
Do Any Sauna Manufacturers Even Live Up To The Reviews!?!!?
So, that brings me to 5 months later… I had my fillings out, I knew I had mercury and aluminum from my hair tests, and I knew I needed to get it out, and all my local sauna options were likely high EMF.
I started calling all the top brands to see which one I should buy. Buy of boy was that a pile or horseshit… almost every single one of them said theirs is the best, the lowest emf, the most absorb-able… and on and on and on.
It got the point where, I didn’t know who to trust anymore. (and I’m talking about all the major brands here: Sunlighten, Therasauna, Clearlight, etc…) All the marketing was bullshit, and there is no standardized third party testing. So while one company might report having a no emf sauna, the actual emf readings were done in a totally different part of the sauna than the next company. So it becomes a wash, and I wasted almost 5 months forfeiting better health because I wouldn’t buy one. It was a $5,000 purchase decision, and I wasn’t going to just buy anything after looking at their return policies. It was garbage.
Testing Saunas With A True Tri-Axis EMF Meter
(and the shocking truth it revealed!)
And so, my quest to start testing saunas and report real trustworthy reviews began. I realized that I wasn’t the only one in this dilemma, and there were likely a ton of people being taken advantage of year after year. And since most people aren’t uber wealthy, a sauna is an expensive purchase for just about all of us. it isn’t like buying a pair of shoes and then hating them, it’s usually something we put on a credit card or finance. Not to mention, getting the right one is critical, since the damn things come on a semi truck!
And here we are to today… I started reviewing saunas, because like you, I wanted to know I was buying something half decent. I knew I needed a sauna in my house, because there was no way in hell that I was going to drive across town everyday to do 30 days of niacin detox. But, my body needed it. If I were going to get rid of this mercury and fatigue, I knew I needed to up my sauna sessions. But which one should I buy I kept asking?
Well, here are my findings. I hope these real infrared sauna reviews help make your life a little easier when it comes to buying an infrared sauna for your home. If there are any saunas you want me to review, let me know in the comments below!
