Did you know not all saunas treat your body the same? The wrong sauna can dehydrate you and only contains 2% toxins and drains you of water. The right sauna detox’es 10 times as much and puts you on the fast train to fix weight gain, body pain and energy drain. “Which sauna? Can’t I just go to the one at the gym?” You probably won’t after you hear this episode. There’s a ton of conflicting information on which is best, but today you’re in luck because I have done the research for you. Many months of hard work and testing personally has brought me to find one of the best personal sauna companies on the market.

This episode of the Cleanse, Heal, Ignite Podcast is with Connie from Sunlighten. We are talking about complete saunas and full spectrum saunas and why it makes a difference to go ‘full out’ with the best, if you’re going to get your sweat on. It might surprise you hear that many saunas can and will actually make you ‘more’ sick.
In this episode
- We go into what is a complete and full spectrum sauna and what makes it different from near infrared saunas and traditional gym steam saunas
- How far infrared can actually penetrate much deeper to help with cellular level detoxification from heavy metals and other harmful toxins that get built up in our bodies
- Why it is important to consider the materials your sauna is made from (Hint: Don’t buy from Costco, nor anything from China. You get what you pay for).
- How Sunlighten saunas have been tested through double blind studies and research and have been proven to help people with reducing pain, lowering blood pressure, removing toxins and helping with overall beauty without the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs
When you get the best of the best, your body feels it. Sunlighten’s Saunas are handcrafted, specifically designed and include everything you need to detoxify and beautify your mind, body and soul!
“What makes something healing and therapeutic and transformative is fine tuning the quantity of the right wavelength. Whether it's far infrared, mid-infrared or near-infrared what you want to do is you want to get rid of all of the non healing rays.” [14:36]
“At the end of the trial, and it was a six week trial, clinical trial, the Sunlighten Solo proves statistically to help the patients in a significant way. For example, it lowered blood pressure significantly.” [10:18]
“Every unit is really handcrafted with the safest materials including this carbonized charcoal bamboo fiber. It’s not only infrared emitting, it’s non-toxic, anti-bacterial, it’s antimicrobial. A therapeutic fiber. We spent a lot of time researching the right fiber.” [46:48]
When I kickstarted my sauna solution, it was a BIG MOVE to detox myself from many years of partying, bad habits, pharmaceuticals, non-organic food, toxic beauty products, and environmental pollutants. After digging into the benefits, I came to the conclusion that ‘Everyone should have a sauna in their home…our world is too Toxic not to. It’s near impossible to prevent exposure from toxins, or clear them at the rate we are exposed to them…unless you live on a deserted island and even still…it’s debatable’.
With the average person, having 700 industrial chemicals found in their blood, Saunas are the Biggest Impact / Easiest to do, method for detox that helps you burn 500+ calories an hour in a relaxed state. BONUS right?
This is my recommendation for the Very Best Sauna out there, which is also the Top rated and reviewed for the majority of blogs I’ve seen
Sunlighten saunas use infrared light (experienced as heat) instead of steam used in traditional saunas. Infrared light gently heats the body from within instead of heating the air. It has the ability to penetrate the surface of the skin, which gives your body overall radiant warmth. Traditional heathers only heat the air, which can become extremely hot and uncomfortable in which to breathe. In a Sunlighten sauna, you will experience the deepest, most detoxifying sweat of your life!
The mPulse® patented 3-in-1 heaters combine three separate elements in order to deliver each wavelength at its peak for a complete whole-body experience of healing, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
More Info On Infrared Technology
Near infrared technology
Cell Health/Immunity: Sunlighten infrared therapy stimulates the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which help cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health and strengthen the immune system.
In fact, a NASA study showed this same near infrared therapy, delivered by LEDs deep into body tissue, can quadruple cell health and tissue growth.
Wound Healing: Sunlighten’s Solocarbon 3-in-1 Infrared Spectrum Sauna is the only heater on the market capable of producing near infrared (NIR) light using LED technology. This is the same technology used in scientific research that concluded NIR therapy greatly enhances the wound healing process.
Studies conducted by NASA concluded that NIR LED light significantly promotes faster cell regeneration, wound healing and human tissue growth. Human cell growth increased by 155%-171% in some cases and wound size decreased by 36%.
Skin Rejuvenation: The skin’s appearance improves as pores open from the deeper sweat induced by Sunlighten’s infrared therapy. Skin benefits include:
Acne: Infrared saunas may not only improve the appearance of acne scarring, but they may actually help reduce acne in the first place. Typical acne is caused by a build-up of oil on the skin, and if you produce a lot of oil, that can lead to constant breakouts. Infrared saunas cause you to sweat from infrared heat – not actual heat – which can help clean out those clogged pores. When a sauna session is complete, a quick face wash ensures the unclogged pores do not clog up again.
Skin Detoxification: Infrared saunas are clinically proven to reach deeper levels into your skin, effectively removing toxins such as heavy metals. Sunlighten’s Solocarbon technology heats your body to the core, pulling out toxins that can clog your pores and lead to a host of health issues beyond just within your skin.
Tone and Texture: In a study done in 2006, doctors looked at the impact of infrared on collagen and elastin in our skin, two of the most important ingredients to healthy skin. They found that both collagen and elastin increased after exposure to infrared, and all patients included in the study reported enhanced skin texture, less roughness, and improvement in color.
Pain Relief: Sunlighten infrared sauna heat works by penetrating joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and speeding oxygen flow. By reducing soreness on nerve endings, Sunlighten’s near infrared heat reduces muscle spasms and helps the body heal itself naturally.
A recent Japanese study published in the journal, Internal Medicine, showed that chronic pain patients experienced a significant reduction in pain levels (nearly 70%) after the first session of infrared sauna therapy. Pain scores also decreased significantly and remained low throughout the observation period. Researchers concluded that infrared heat therapy is effective for chronic pain treatment.
Mid infrared (MIR)
Far Infrared therapy
Heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Your sweat then pushes out the toxins, cleansing your body and rejuvenating your skin.
