Real Unbiased Infrared Sauna Reviews On Safe Low EMF Saunas

You won’t find any stupid affiliate site infrared sauna reviews here, ain’t nobody got time for those made up reviews or top 10 lists, when none of those people have ever put their hands on a single sauna in their entire life. If you have no idea who I am, I’m just a regular guy that was suffering from chronic sinus infections, allergies, chronic fatigue, anxiety, and brain fog. After two years of suffering all the time, I figured out that I had mercury in my teeth from amalgam fillings I got when I was a kid. I got them removed, and poof, within 30 days I no longer had sinus infections anymore, and I haven’t had a sinus infection since. It was literally like someone waved a magic wand, and still to this day I can’t believe how dramatic the difference is. But that was just the beginning, and little did I know… the easy part. Detoxing the metals from the rest of my body, from years of having mercury in my mouth, would be a whole new challenge in itself, since my liver enzymes were over 500, and the doc was questioning whether or not I was an alcoholic. (I didn’t drink much by this time) 

After buying more than one infrared sauna that didn’t live up to the claims, I knew I had to start reviewing saunas. I wasn’t a health blogger in any capacity before this life altering debacle I found myself in, but I was a professional blogger with decent reach and influence.  With over 1 million view on YouTube before even reviewing my first sauna, I knew I could use my reach for good, and help a ton of people avoid wasting thousands of dollars on bullshit saunas sold online under different aliases and “brand” names.  After hundreds of hours of research, and ordering countless saunas, and documenting the entire process, I finally found out which sauna companies are truly full of shit, and which ones are legitimate.  Despite the great marketing efforts of many, and the sales army of many of the most popular brands, willing to shove any and all information down your throat just to get you to buy, I finally found an infrared sauna company that lives up to the claims.

My Infrared Sauna Reviews

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 in a very intuitive way to protect the brain and organs from further damage, I 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 synthetic chelation, or even a mercury challenge test using DMPS or DMSA at the time, according to my functional medicine doc. 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, using red heat lamps. I would later learn, that these don’t actually emit much near infrared at all, but they do indeed get hot to the touch. 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!

We started from the bottom, now we’re here. If you don’t get the reference, essentially I started at the bottom of the list, with what I could afford at the time. I thought all I had to do was buy a decent infrared sauna from Amazon, and I could safely detox my heavy metals. I would later find out that most of these sauna companies regularly lie in their marketing, since the industry is unregulated. I started reviewing each model I bought, so other people wouldn’t have to waste money on the same brands I did that turned out to be high EMF, didn’t work well, or simply weren’t anything like the claims. Cheap plywood saunas with saw dust falling out of them, over 100 milliguass when they were sold to me specifically as “low emf”, I could go on and on.

Frequently Asked Sauna Questions

Can I Trust The Infrared Sauna Reviews Online?

Well I would say in general, no. It’s part of the reason why I even started putting this information out there. I trusted them, spent thousands of dollars on saunas that are good for a bonfire instead of detox, and then learned the hard way that most people posting emf reviews have no idea how to use their meter, which meter they even have (weighted or unweighted), and that most of the Amazon reviews or sauna reviews you find online, are from naive consumers that haven’t done their research. It’s not their fault, they simply don’t know what they’re missing.

Does Every Type Of Sauna Prevent Cancer, Or Just Infrared?

Well first off, I am not a doctor, and this is just my opinion. However, if you look up the research by Dr. Rhonda Patrick, who IS indeed a doctor, she reports on findings of cultures across the world that have a lower risk for just about every disease due to regular sauna use.

The state if hyperthermia, whereby the body generates a fever or elevated temperature, does many many positive things to viruses, bacteria, etc… However, there are a couple of things going on here. First, some of the research shows that simply by elevating the body temp regularly, the body itself reacts amazingly well releasing heat shock proteins naturally when under heat stress. Additionally, the other component of heating the body with infrared, producing a deep penetrating sweat, releases stored toxins from deep within your fat cells, which would take hours of running at full speed to replicate.

However, there is also the benefit of breathing super hot air in a finish style steam sauna as well. Some say this is good, and others say it’s better to be in an infrared where you aren’t subjecting your lungs to ultra hot air. I believe there are benefits to both, it just depends on your needs.

So to answer succinctly, yes both types of saunas can help to prevent cancer in their own way. To say that one prevents cancer and another doesn’t is a bit naive in not fully understanding what is happening when we go in a sauna. As always though, do your own research, and draw your own conclusions when it comes to cancer.

  1. I am looking forward to your insight, especially for the Therasauna. I have read that the ceramic is less toxic than the carbon-based saunas and I am specificially wondering about their EMF claims.

    • Hi Marie,

      Yes it should be interesting… I can’t find a single YouTube video where someone tests a Therasauna with a decent meter. New batch of saunas coming in 8 days on the 12th, so I’ll have some new videos about a week after. (just need a few days to put them together and test them out)

    • Hi Marie, just wanted to update you… I’m doing the Therasauna right now. Works well, good sweat, but the build quality is questionable at best. (I had to use a saw to install the electronics, roof panel broken on arrival, stereo either doesn’t work or is junk, saw dust in it just like the JNH, etc…)

      It’s low (er) emf than some, but definitely not low emf like some people claim. There is a solid 10mg + at the body in the seated position.

      However it does seem to work well, and deliver that deep penetrating sweat we need for a good detox session.

      I would say the jury is still out on the Therasauna, since the other brands I’m reviewing seem like they might be better for the same price. (with better build quality) I’m going to put it through it’s paces over the next 7 days, and see how she fares. Videos are coming…

  2. Hey looking forward to your reviews. I am in the process of making a purchase but i wont until this comes out because I am electrically sensitive and was a bit scared to spend 5000 on a clearlight sauna and then im not able to even use so this review will help me to decide on whats best to do.

    • Hey Joel,

      Yep I know the feeling! New ones coming next week, and it’ll take me a week or so to put them together and test them out… should have cool stuff shortly that though!
      Anything particular you’d like me to include in the review videos? (I’d imagine you’re interested in seeing the levels with my multiple meter setup primarily?)

  3. Hi. How come me not one single review is available in this article? I’ve tried refreshing, hit every company name on your list and nothing happens.
    Apparently I need technical assistance with this blog. Lol. Suggestions?
    Thanks in advance

  4. Matt
    ordering one in the next 2 days- between the ENSI and clearlight- would prefer 3 person with red cedar. Worried a little about the EMFs but I don’t think any thing is perfect. Can you advise ?

    • Hi Deborah,

      I would personally wait, since I can’t ethically make an ultimate recommendation without having tested the next batch of saunas. As soon as I get over being sick, it’s business as usual.

      Well I wasn’t a fan of the build quality of the Ensi, though I did love the cabinet design, but it didn’t get hot enough to give me that deep penetrating sweat like the others. It is essentially made from scrap pieces of wood, with sawdust falling out of the walls all over the house when you go to set it up. The Ensi IS in fact, low emf… it just doesn’t heat you up enough which makes it kind of worthless to me. I don’t recommend it at all, and sent mine back if that tells you anything. I have review videos of it and pictures documenting the whole thing, just waiting on the editing and I’ll get them uploaded shortly.

      I haven’t personally been able to test a Clearlight Sanctuary yet, so I can’t give you an apples to apples comparison.

      That said, if those are your only two options, I would take the Clearlight over the Ensi.

      A different brand will probably be my first choice, but again I don’t want to wrongly advise you without putting my meters on it to make a recommendation with 100% certainty.

  5. I am trying to decide between a Clearlight sanctuary and Sunlighten Signature. When do you think your reviews will be complete? Thank you for all of your posts. They don’t make it easy.

    • Hi Jen,

      Got sidetracked a bit and getting over being sick. Currently testing a Therasauna, and have already done the Sunlighten M Pulse. Sunlighten dome sauna and Signature are in the works.

      JNH Lifestyles, Dynamic/Golden Designs, and Radiant Saunas are also done.

      I still can’t find a Clearlight anywhere in Orlando to pay to use, and the Sanctuary model I wanted is not shipping for another month… So a bit out of luck on that one for a bit longer. If I had to guess, I’d say either the Signature or Sanctuary would be good choices, I just don’t think they’re as good as the brand I have on the way for less money. (don’t wanna get ahead of myself though, gotta test it first!)
