#855. Fountain of Youth Far Infrared Sauna (FIR Saunas)


Your lungs are a critical aspect of natural detoxification. Internal cleansing is mandatory for optimal respiratory maintenance.  You can burn 400 calories in just one 20-minute session! Compare below to other forms of sweating.

From Mike:
It is absolutely heavenly. My body heats up and sweats a lot faster than in rock or steam saunas. I do not leave the sauna feeling drained like I did with the rock and steam kind. I can even watch the Discovery channel or read or listen to talking books or music and get a great sweat and internal cleanse. More about this below. No messy water, hot rocks or expensive ventilation or installation to deal with. This is major jumpstart for my personal spring and ongoing detoxification program and for visiting clients. I am confident that after only one or two sessions, you will wonder how you ever lived without it.

A far infrared ray is a form of electromagnetic light energy from the sun. It falls within the same family as Infrared Rays in the light spectrum, but due to its longer wavelengths, FIR cannot be seen by human eyes, just like ultraviolet rays and X-rays. This radiant energy is absolutely essential for human beings and all living things in the world.

Far Infrared Sauna vs. Traditional Sauna

Don't miss the
Combos below.


Infrared saunas used in the home are the first step to better physical and mental health. It is now possible to have an infrared sauna of your very own. At a price you can afford.

Saunas and steam baths have been used for centuries by cultures around the world to bring about detoxification and better health. Traditionally, saunas have been used to improve mental clarity, to diminish pain, and to promote longevity.

Far-Infrared (FIR) heat is a form of naturally occurring energy that directly heats objects by gentle infrared radiation heat, rather than by raising the temperature of the surrounding air. FIR heat is completely safe for the human body. Physical therapists often use FIR heat to promote healing, and hospitals use the same heat to keep premature babies warm in incubators.


In the past few years, hyperthermic (sweat) therapy has been studied extensively. Through this research, it has been shown that far infrared saunas greatly assist in the elimination of accumulated toxins due to the deep level therapeutic heating. Toxic metals and waste such as mercury, lead, nickel, cadmium, alcohol, nicotine, sodium and cholesterol are excreted in high quantities in the sweat during a 30-min infrared sauna session.

Sweating reduces stress and fatigue; burns calories, reduces cellulite, helps control weight; removes toxins and wastes; relaxes and soothes muscles; relieves pain and joint stiffness; boost metabolism and improves the immune system; it also promotes a healthier skin condition and skin tone; enhanced blood circulation, and gives you a good cardiovascular workout.


Do not be fooled by non ceramic heaters. These saunas use ceramic heaters, with 16 minerals in the ceramic which product therapeutic far infrared waves. The non ceramic produce only heat, not infrared waves. There are many phony saunas on the market. I even saw one (a $600.00 tent version) being sold at the Spa Conference in Los Angeles last February.

During a 10-20 minute sauna session, your heart rate increases by 50-75%. This provides the same metabolic result as physical exercise. The increased cardiac load is the equivalent to a brisk walk. There is a nominal effect on blood pressure because the heat also causes blood vessels in skin to expand to accommodate increased blood flow. To repeat.
Those that do not or can not exercise can still receive incredible self healing benefits for regular FIR sauna sweats.

Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) accumulate in the body during modern daily life. The body eliminates most toxins naturally by sweating. Heat therapy stimulates the sweat glands that cleanse and detoxify the skin. The heat simply speeds up the body's natural process. Those that do not or can not exercise can still receive incredible self healing benefits.

Heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process.
Arthritis Pain Relief. In Europe, radiant heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of arthritis. The deep heat of our infrared sauna helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. It has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculoskeletal ailments. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to depleted muscles so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm, promoting greater flexibility and range of motion. Much of the stiffness, aches and soreness that come with aging are reduced or eliminated.

Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water-soluble and the body sweats out fats and toxins.

During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. This rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system's healing process and is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. The combination of heat, extra water and the immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth. Saunas induce an "artificial fever" by heating up the body but without the pains of an illness. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the "artificial fever".

The traditional sauna is electric, wood or gas fired. Preheating to 150-200 degrees is required for copious sweating. The intense heat is difficult for many to tolerate, especially when ill.
Far-infrared saunas do even more! They heat the body, but the air remains cool. Sweating begins quickly and the experience is rather pleasant. Preheating is unnecessary which saves electricity.
As the body increases sweat production to cool itself, the heart works harder.  Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increases. Blood pressure drops.  This helps improve cardiovascular fitness.
The Journal of the American Medical Association reported   "A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 gms. in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal - the equivalent of running 2 - 3 miles. A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600 - 800 kcal with no adverse effects. While the weight of the water loss can be regained by rehydration with water, the calories consumed will not be."
Infrared saunas do even more. They generate two to three times the sweat produced in a hot-air sauna.  The weight loss math is good because producing one gram of sweat requires 0.586 calories
You can burns 400 or more calories in just one 20-minute session!
Compare this to the calories a 150-pound person normally burns up in 20-minutes of exercise:

20 Minute SPORT                             CALORIES
Marathon Running                                   393
Vigorous Racquet Ball                              310
Swimming (crawl stroke)                          200
Jogging                                                 200
Tennis (fast game)                                 195
Cycling (10 mph)                                    175
Golfing (without a cart)                           100
Walking (3.5 mph)                                  150
There are some cautions.  Infrared heating may aggravate pacemakers or heart conditions.  At higher altitude the heat may have faster, different or stronger effects.  Anyone with blood clot problems should also beware. Internal heat expands blood vessels and could release a clot.

The size of the sauna that you choose is obviously dependent upon the number of people you see using it at any given time, as well as your comfort zone requirements and living space available.  A two person Infrared Sauna will certainly accommodate two people, but what works for some is simply too tight for others. If you wish to have a fair amount of extra personal space when sharing a sauna—and remember, you will be sweating a lot. If you don’t foresee sharing the sauna, a two person model is very comfortable for one person. The 3-4 person is very roomy.

This modular infrared sauna comes with 6 easy to assemble panels. No special tools are needed. Now, you can enjoy the benefit of an infrared sauna in the comfort of your own home!


Sauna assembly 

I am so convinced that this is one or the VERY BEST things you can do for your breathing that I researched the market and developed an ongoing relationship with a leading sauna importer.  They give me a referral fee to help run the web site and you get a huge savings by eliminating the need for local showrooms and warehousing.  See what follows.   

Try one together with:
1. Great combination
is with an oxygen concentrator. Sit in the FIR sauna and breathe freshly made oxygen.

2. Better Breathing Exercise #2.
Do it inside the sauna using the Sauna's Compact Disk player and triple the benefits.  More about

Consider getting a bottle of our proprietary respiratory enhancer

Sit in the sauna, breathe the oxygen, do the Breathing Exercise #2, add  the respiratory enhancer to your chest and nose or in the concentrator water filter bottle,  or meditate with the Watching Breath or watch TV. Wonderful!

They are so inexpensive. If you can't get one for yourself have a friend get one and use theirs. They will thank you. If you live near enough to 28786 zip code come over and try mine.
