You’ve probably heard me say LIGHT THERAPY IS LIFE!
But seriously, I am ALL about the infrared life.. and you should be too!
In fact, I’m willing to bet that if you actually read this entire blog you’ll be RUNNING, not walking, to your local Sunlighten Spa!
Initially I started using Infrared Saunas after I got diagnosed with Hypothyroidism.
I knew a large part of the reason for the diagnosis was my bodys inability to detox paired with my bodies inability to deal with stress… and I knew that infrared saunas would help with those things. So in desperation, I gave it a shot.
Needless to say, Infrared Saunas have been my holy grail ever since!
The first time I went I wondered how sitting in a sauna could be doing anything… but when I left I felt lighter, cleaner, calmer, more agile, more energized, and just a little happier.
So I kept going. And I can honestly say, HAND TO HEAVEN, every time I go I feel lighter, cleaner, calmer, more agile, more energized, and just a little happier!
But it’s not just me or my opinion… almost 60% of people with Hashimoto’s have reported that using infrared sauna therapy makes them feel significantly better!
And it’s not just them… The Journal of the American Medical Association found that one infrared sauna weight loss session burned up to 600 calories. ONE.
And in a 2015 survey of 2332 readers 74% of people reported that using a sauna boosted their overall mood.
Not to mention… Dr. Nicholas Perricone, a board-certified dermatologist, nutritionist and world-renowned healthy aging expert conducted a case study involving the benefits of Near-Infrared Light Therapy and said “…over a period of 2 months, The skin was healthier, firmer and there was a visible diminished appearance in wrinkles. Near Infrared Light can increase the production of collagen in the skin. The cells that make collagen and elastin, absorb the Near Infrared (NIR) light after just minutes of exposure.”
HOLY $#!& , RIGHT?!!
That’s what I said too!
I was like “I can feel better, lose weight, be in a better mood, and tip my body in the fountain of youth?!!
And those 4 things barely scratch the surface of what the RIGHT infrared sauna can do!
So just in case looking and feeling amazing doesn’t quite tickle your fancy, here are a few other PROVEN benefits…
- Stress Relief
- Emotional Release
- Pain Relief
- Reduces Inflammation
- Increases Circulation
- Weight Loss
- Blood Pressure Lowering
- Wound Healing

And if you’re someone dealing with a thyroid issue, this should be actual footage of you right now…
If your body is under attack, now more than ever you need to focus on healing. Infrared saunas are an amazing place to practice meditation, pray, destress, and balance your hormones.
Slow thyroid function can also cause people to have chronically low body temperature. Regularly sitting in on sessions will help boost your temperature and white blood cell function.
If your metabolism has been compromised from low thyroid function, Sunlighten saunas were shown to help lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period.
Infrared saunas can help people with a thyroid condition suffering from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, migraines, arthritis or joint pain.
The sauna I personally use is Sunlighten mPulse 3-in-1.
I prefer the Sunlighten mPulse for a lot of reasons…
- Sunlighten saunas have the most amount of infrared on the market
- Their saunas are the only ones clinically shown to increase core body temp by three degrees — which is the key to the detox process – https://www.sunlighten.com/
- Sunlighten saunas help the body kill bad bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses!
- AND they’re the best at detoxification of heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, aluminum, nickel, etc.
