I love the saunas too. I first experienced the foot bath in Europe about 12 years ago. I knew I had to have one. When I got back to Texas I found out that you couldn't purchase them in the US and the ones I could order from other countries started out at $1500 up to $3000. When I discovered the ionic dynamo I purchased it immediately. This was so much cheaper and works faster than other models I had tried.

Since I am in the company of people who like to detox, I thought I would share a wonderful product that I discovered about 9 years ago. I use an ionic foot bath twice a week. It pull out all kinds of yucky stuff from your joints, organs, etc. I bought mine in Dallas at the Women's Health Expo. Michael mason is the owner of the company

This product has changed our lives. My joints and muscles feel amazing, skin and hair became very soft and overall much more energy. If you use one, you do need to take a mineral supplement or I use colloidial minerals afterwards. You can lose some of the good stuff that is attached to the toxins that come out of your feet. I just thought I would share since it has been so great for us.


Well that's a bit pricey!

I have not done the sauna, but I am pretty sure that I would not sweat in one.  The high temps would raise my blood pressure and pulse and I think my head would explode.

As will with everything--I'm sure that the infrared sauna is not good for all.  For detoxing DrD recommends dry brushing for A's and AB's, epsom salt baths for B's and only for O's does he recommend sauna/steam.

Even a hot bath makes me woozy.  Heat--even a hot day--raises my pulse and BP.  I am slow to sweat, as several others on this thread have mentioned.  I suspect that is another one of those genetic anomalies--and somewhat detrimental to our health.  But if dry brushing is what works for A/AB--then so be it.  That's what I'll do.

You have described my exact experience with an infared sauna....I don't sweat, I get dizzy and
lightheaded and it raises my BP too..  Yet, I'm not someone with much heat tolerance at all.  Rather do dry brushing and foot baths rather than put my whole body into any hot environment.
I don't take hot baths for the same reason as you....makes me woozy.  Wonder what our
genetic anomalies are.  My sister will play golf in 100 degrees...my other sister hates cold weather.  I'm the oddity in the family. Maybe you and I are twins separated at birth!

Chloe--twins separated at birth--I think you have hit the nail on the head.

We share so many similarities--evident to me in so many of your postings.  Unbeknownst to you, you have helped me so much since I have joined and participated in this board the last several months. And, hah, I just spent a very hot weekend in the central valley of California at my granddaughter's wedding--and it just about did me in--while my sister was out and about in the heat of the day--doing fine.  I was surrounded by robust family and friends. This is has been difficult for me all of my life.  I have often felt like a fish out of water in my family.  But I must say that DrD's work has helped me to understand myself--accept myself--and not judge myself.

Nothing to judge about not liking hot weather.  I remember as a child going to sleep away camp
and we'd have to go hiking....wearing long pants, hiking shoes, in the heat.  Some counselor would always have to come over and let me sit on a rock because I would be close to passing out.
Not from the hiking but from the heat...  Same thing would happen to me on a baseball field..
the sun beating down on my body, on a hot day. Intolerable. I'd feel like fainting,  My parents thought I just hated camp. (which I did), but mostly because it was summertime and I had to spend so much of it outdoors in the heat.  

I rarely meet people who love cold weather....but glad to be living in NY  where today it's
62 degrees.  Windows are open in the house and I'm walking around barefooted.

Really, I think according to chinese medicine we have a hot constitution which needs to be tempered with cooling foods and beverages. I often drink peppermint tea because it feels cooling
to my body when it's too warm outside.  And in books on chinese medicine, they list the properties of foods, whether they're cooling or heating.  Foods that are spicy like garlic, cinnamon and ginger not only upset my stomach, they make me feel overly sweaty in the summer. I winter
I tolerate them all pretty well.

Thanks for letting me know I've said things that were helpful for you.  

I've learned a lot from others here as well....Paying it forward!
