The 1 KEY detox difference between NEAR and FAR Infrared

I've always maintained the position that a near infrared  is the most effective detoxification tool available. To truly detoxify your body of rampant environmental toxicity take at least 6 months of continual detoxification and maybe a year or more. There are lots of websites showing the depth of toxicity existing in our bodies. Hundreds of chemicals are found including many that are proven to cause cancer.

Why does it take so long to detox? Because toxins are stored in places that are difficult to access. The science is very clear that we have lots of toxins stored in our fat cells. The reason they are stored is because we are exposed to more toxins a day than we have the ability to eliminate. Here is a simple way to look at it:

daily exposure  < eliminative capacity 
No toxins need to be stored

daily exposure  = eliminative capacity 
No toxins need to be stored

daily exposure  > eliminative capacity 
Toxins need to be stored to prevent immediate poisoning

When you read that scientists find chemicals stored in fat cells, than you can conclude that exposure is greater than the ability to eliminate. Hence, the need for supplemental detoxification. 

Many of these chemicals are outright poisons to the body. Some cause cancer, others cause protein and DNA damage. Some destroy endocrine function. When you detoxify these chemicals, they are released from long held storage and for a short time they are in circulation. This is they key point here: when this happens, your cells can be damaged yet again!

That's why near infrared is clearly the superior choice for detoxification. Near infrared light can protect cells from the damage caused by toxic chemicals. Near infrared light strengthens cell metabolism, increases cell regeneration, and increases intracellular anti-oxidant activity  All of these actions combine to protect cells from toxic damage. Here are lots of links showing protective effects:

The key difference here is that far infrared has no protective action at all.

NASA Researcher Harry Whelan Podcast on Near Infrared

Dr. Harry Whelan is the leading research expert on how near infrared aids energy production in the mitochondria.  Here he is in an interview about near infrared light therapy:


Dr. Whelan talks about the current technology showing how easily near infrared light penetrates deeply into the body. This is one of many, many reasons to have a near infrared healing tool in your home!

3 Key Features Your Sauna Must Have To Truly Work Well

3 Key Features That Make An Infrared Sauna Work Best

Thermostat or No Thermostat?

                Most saunas have a thermostat and on the surface, this seems like a good convenience. In an infrared sauna, however, it’s a waste.  What does a thermostat do? It brings the heat up until the desired temperature is reached and then it shuts off. In an infrared sauna, shutting off the heat means shutting off the infrared. As soon as the infrared shuts off you’re just sitting in a hot, stuffy box.
                A better design is to build the sauna so that it naturally reaches a good sauna temperature without a thermostat. If you need it cooler, just open the door a little or a vent. But, whatever you do, don’t shut off the infrared. You should learn to use the sauna by taking a hot sauna for a shorter time, rather than setting the thermostat for a low temperature.
                Long Life Saunas have no thermostat. Instead, they are designed to operate at 120-130F, which is the perfect range for near infrared.  Without the thermostat, you are getting the full near infrared therapy for the entire length of your sauna session. Do not settle for less.
Reflective walls
                Infrared energy travels in a straight line, like light. When you look at the design of any infrared sauna, you can see that no matter how you sit, some of the infrared is going to come out of the emitter and pass right by your body.  Take a look at this next picture. It’s a typical carbon panel sauna. Imagine yourself sitting in the sauna, surrounded by carbon panels on your left and right. As you use the sauna, where does this infrared energy around you go?

In most cases, the infrared lands on the wall directly opposite the heater.  In the sauna above, it lands on the glass , a wood wall, or on another heater where it is absorbed. None of that infrared ever reaches your body. In the example above, you receive about 20% of the saunas output.
                A better design would have that extra infrared energy reflected and reused, rather that be wasted. I realized this early on and created saunas that reflect 97% of the infrared light and heat. When you use a Long Life Near Infrared Sauna, it looks like this:

In a reflective sauna, as much as 90% of the infrared energy reaches your body. That’s one of the reasons these saunas are so much more effective than others.

Cluster Heating
                As we learned earlier, you get better tissue penetration with more intense infrared heat in a given surface area. In our saunas, we cluster the heat lamps on one side to maximize the intensity of infrared energy. In addition, this focuses the heat on your midsection. Having tested many designs, this one most easily raises core temperatures which proves it is the best way to achieve deep tissue penetration.
