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.

Quoted from Juliebug
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

http://www.ionicdynamo.com

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!

The Far IR irradiation transformation efficiency of heating panels, heating wires and heating elements is 90% in 3µ~15µm wavelength, which is close to human cells' vibration. This is the most beneficial wavelength

Sounds like we have very similar saunas.  We love it & use it daily especially in winter, so nice to really warm up the bones!
I always dry brush first.

I have been searching thru the threads to see who has or recommends a portable infrared sauna. Since I don't have the room for a built in or the money I decided I would research a portable or lamp infrared sauna. I would love to hear and pros or cons any of you have experienced with this. I have not had time to read all the threads on this site but just sifted thru a few so I hope I am not duplicated anything. I trust and respect your comments on this matter.

I just re read my prior posts and still agree with what I wrote when I WAS trying to use my portable unit...How tall are you?  If taller than me, you might find sitting there more tolerable for you than it was to me...I just was sitting too low and could not find anything to bring my head up tall enough so it was outside of the box without straining me to sit so tall.  And likely because my face was so close to the heat source, I wasn't able
to tolerate the intense heat. But from a perspective of tolerating heat, you'd have to be a person who liked
extreme warmth and I just never did.  I could sooner stand outside in a snow storm than be in any hot environment.

To assume you have no overheating issues and are taller than me, let me give you the pros of this unit without my personal judgement of what irritated me. (and might not irritate you)

The unit is lightweight and can be easily moved from one place to another....can be plugged into any outlet
and folded up without much effort.  I wouldn't say it's made particularly well, because it's plastic sheeting
that is shaped and sits on a metal frame with a zipper in the center....two zipper pockets on the sides so
your hands can get out.  My zipper didn't rip, the plastic held up...and although I feel it's overpriced, it's
probably similar to all other units in this same price category.

The controls are easy to use....the timer works well...the heat holds constant fairly well....and unit will get very hot and should make you sweat.

The cons:  the heat source is behind your back - basically exposed and very hot.......and if you accidentally lean backwards can burn yourself...There is not a lot of leg room on the floor...I could not stretch my legs
out and it felt claustrophobic.  My arms could only get to the outside of the unit if I unzipped the two
zipper side pockets...which I had to do often to get water....and then required that I had something in front
of the unit to place the water bottle on because I could not reach the floor.

If you have $200 and like the idea of sweating and being enclosed in a box that provides the infrared experience, I think it is worth the investment because I don't think there is anything between this portable unit and the more professional saunas.  There seems to be a huge price gap between this portable unit and those costing way over $1,000.... I bought mine on Amazon....with Prime it was a little under $200.

Thanks Chloe for the helpful information. I am cold natured so the warm heat will be right up my alley. (Lately I have been sitting on a heated throw blanket just to stay warm). I am average height 5'6" so maybe sitting with my head out won't be to uncomfortable.

Have you noticed any health benefits when you use your sauna?

I'm glad my experience is helpful for you....I haven't used my sauna in about 3 years...so whatever benefits I got when I did use it really isn't something I can quantify or actually remember in any great detail.  I just think it's helpful to use an infrared sauna to detoxify and it was recommended to me by the teaching shift at Dr. D's clinic. .......so, if I eliminated even some toxins while using it, I feel it was worthwhile that I even gave it 6 months of my time.  If you buy a unit, I hope you come back and share so others might benefit from your experience.

Kryo-Sauna seem to be very effectful in case of fibro and all kind of arthritis and pains as well... but it's a bit merely the true "cold-shock" then ....

Speaking of 'laying down"  I can lay down in mine because I got a 3 person unit.  I like to sit up, lay down, stand up, stretch, read, talk on the phone, etc., while I'm in there so the options of have a box unit that I can do all of this in, were very important.   I had a two person once and I hated it because I could not lay down!  As well, I'd hate to just lay down for 45 min which is the amount of time I stay in.   If I do lay down, I might be down for 15 min max and then I'm sitting back up.  I also like to stretch as well while I'm in there.   So.. in case you are a jumping bean type person like me..   you might want to consider getting one you can do all these things in.
