Well I’ve got new for you, people are getting sick and tired of that nonsense just like I was. I get calls every week complaining about the pushy sales process from sauna companies and sales people. It’s getting ridiculous. But anyhow, when it comes to EMF, everyone is blowing smoke up your ass. I finally sat down and tested tons of infrared saunas, and got to the truth about the EMF stuff.
it turns out, everyone is usually lying about something, somewhere. Makes it hard for us as consumers to figure out what the hell is going on, and what to buy.
For clarity, Sunlighten does not intentionally stuff toxic bamboo coverings over the heaters to try and poison their customers, despite the ridiculous claims you may have heard. I know it’s a war out there between sauna companies, but some of this nonsense just makes you want to reach through the computer screen, and strangle the shit out of some of these people.
At the end of the day, if you’re looking for a low emf infrared sauna, Clearlight focuses on mitigating electric and magnetic fields more so than Sunlighten. The Sunlighten cabinet build quality is the best in the industry, but the EMF levels are higher than the competition. The M Pulse specifically, has higher magnetic fields than I’d like to see (yes I’ve used it myself), and the Sunlighten culture generally is not as focused on mitigating electric fields.
So high that I wouldn’t use one? No, but when you’re buying a brand new sauna for $5k, it’s pretty retarded to buy a brand new sauna knowing it has more emf than you’d like. As a result, I started something I call the Certified Sauna list, which is a comprehensive list of saunas that have been vetted by me with stringent guidelines.
Any of these saunas are the lowest emf in the industry, and there are live video reviews for you to verify everything for yourself. Beware of those third party emf reports, where they take the heaters out of the sauna and send them to a lab. That is not EMF testing, it’s more like EMF scamming. (you cannot alter the native environment of the sauna, and then hand out a fancy testing report and call it low emf… doesn’t work that way, although the sauna salespeople would love it if you thought so!)
I’m sure you’ve probably already seen the claims between Clearlight VS Sunlighten. You’ve got endorsements for Sunlighten from the giants like Dave Asprey of Bulletproof, and Dr. Klinghardt who is extremely respected in the natural health field (but who also states, you should ONLY use the low emf model, which is getting more and more difficult to discern as they come out with new models over the years.) Clearlight has endorsements from people like the director of Hippocrates Health Institute in South Florida, which I have personally been to to pick up a relative and for a short seminar. While I trust Dr Clement’s recommendations, in prior years, he ALSO endorsed Sunlighten back when the company was called “Sunlight” Saunas. While there has been some discrepancies between them filing bankruptcy and not taking care of prior customer warranties, at the end of the day, we just need a good sauna for the money, that’s not going to fall apart of break on us, and that won’t zap us with crazy high EMF levels while we’re trying to heal and detox. And we haven’t even touched on near infrared vs far infrared!
It’s getting to the point of… Who the hell do you trust in the sauna industry anymore!?!?! Anyone with $100k can call up China and order a nice looking sauna with floor heaters in it, slap your brand name on it, and call it a fucking day.
Hell I could do this myself if I had zero integrity left in me, but dammit man, I’m just a guy who is struggling to detox just like everyone else, and am sick and tired of reading, hearing, and seeing all this horseshit from sauna companies. It skews things so bad, that now we don’t even know what we should be worried about more:
- High EMF from shitty heaters and infrared emitters
- Pesticides sprayed on imported woods and materials
- Terrible wiring with no shielding, grounding, and potentially fire hazardous
- Toxic grill materials, plywood fillers, and fake insulation
You tell me, because it ALL sounds bad.
But, one good thing will come out of this, and that is the truth. One of these fuckers is bound to stack up to a reliable affordable solution, and I’m determined to find out which one it is.
- If you are very sick, and ultra EMF sensitive, you might not want to go with a far infrared sauna enclosure at all… particularly one that doesn’t use near infrared bulbs, has wiring close to the body (creates electric fields usually) so you can get the benefits of red light therapy at the same time. (more gentle, and great for people who can’t get enough sunlight) SaunaSpace is a good option if this is you.
- If you’re not ultra sick, and have a heavy metal toxicity like I do, then far infrared or full spectrum is for you. (I wanted far infrared, because I sweat more and feel as though I can eliminate heavy metals much faster… I don’t want it to take 6 months for my mercury levels to drop!) That said, I have both near infrared and far infrared saunas, and my opinion comes from using both firsthand.
Tired of bullshit marketing claims from sauna companies? I was too, and started testing saunas against the bullshit marketing I would hear from sales reps when I called to buy. I originally was just going to buy the most recommended one, and then after talking to a sales person on the phone and them trying to push me into a bigger, more expensive model I didn’t really need, alarm bells started going off.
I thought to myself…”do I really need to spend $6,500.00 to get what I need to heal and detox”?
My gut told me not really, and I started doing more research. The deeper I dug, the more I realized half the stuff we read is bullshit. Fear marketing at it’s finest, and no standardized testing leaves this industry wide open to keep taking advantage of people left and right.
I know you’re hear for a comparison between Clearlight and Sunlighten, which I will get to… I just want you to understand that I’m just a regular guy, that was in the same position you are in. I wasted over 5 months fiddle fucking around because I didn’t want to buy the wrong sauna, and waste $5,000.00 dollars… which was a big purchase decision for me!
Clearlight Full Spectrum VS Sunlighten Full Spectrum: Not Apples To Apples By Any Means
Neither one of these deliver good red light therapy in my opinion. Refer to the video above to see how PBMT wavelengths are lacking in both brands.
An Mpulse Is NOT Intended To Be A Low EMF Sauna… (just like the near infrared heaters in a Clearlight Sanctuary have EMF at close distance!)

EMF Ratings From Consumers
EMF Ratings & Reviews From People Running Around Sauna Groups With A Tri-Field Meter With No Idea How To Use It, Are Not Sound – You’ve seen the videos in facebook groups, but these people literally have no idea how to test for emf, let alone how to test saunas. They’re commonly using the wrong meter altogether, or the wrong setting on the right emf meter.
Infrared Sauna Reviews From Older Models And Portable Dome Sauna Models From Either Company, Should Be Discarded & Reconsidered
A lot of people refer to reviews from both of these sauna companies from several years ago before newer technologies emerged. In both cases of Sunlighten and Clearlight, this is good and bad.
For example, the older Clearlight models clearly have higher emf models, and definitely aren’t even close to zero EMF. Conversely, the Sunlighten Signature models, as recommended by Dr. Klinghardt do have lower EMF levels than newer models like the M Pulse… which has notably higher emf levels, as tested here.
So What’s The Best Home Sauna For The Money?
…conclusion coming shortly. If you have any specific questions answered, or any specific EMF level reported, let me know ASAP in the comments as I’ve already started testing. I will report my findings shortly, let me know what you’d like to see below!
