I have been the proud owner of a Sunlighten sauna since 2008. I'm very impressed with their products and equally impressed by how they continue to improve and advance their technology over time.  Someday, I'd love to get an updated one with all of the nice new features they've added, but the one I have had now for over a decade continues to work like the day I got it.  

As many are aware, sweating can be an excellent way to detoxify, and toxins are at the root of many chronic illnesses.  Incorporating sauna therapy into a health improvement program can be a very powerful tool. 

In my own health journey recovering from Lyme disease and mold illness, I came to the conclusion that detoxification was a top priority in regaining my health and wellness, and my Sunlighten sauna was one of my key tools in this arena.  

I did an interview with Sunlighten that answers many of the questions people often have on sauna therapy.   

Here are some of the Sunlighten sauna benefits specifically for those with Lyme disease: 

Now that's an impressive list!  I'm particularly drawn to its ability to help detoxification and support core body temperature.  Sauna therapy may support the body on several different levels and is often a nice adjunct to a broader treatment protocol.  

Adding an infrared sauna to your home is affordable and easier than you may think. Sunlighten makes high quality infrared saunas with a simple plug and play design that are energy efficient and made with non-toxic materials.  Sunlighten's Solocarbon infrared technology delivers the highest dose of infrared energy fine-tuned to what the human body can absorb, proven up to 99% efficient.  A sauna should be more than a hot box. It should deliver pure infrared energy for natural healing. This is the active ingredient needed for the benefits mentioned above. 

Sunlighten’s mPulse saunas are the first and only infrared saunas to offer specific calibrations of near, mid, and far infrared energy. This smart technology is proven effective and is customizable to individual needs while it tracks your results. These are not just traditional saunas; they are wellness tools that are adaptable to your health needs over time.

  • Proven 99% efficient across all wavelengths for optimal health benefits
  • Advanced LEDs provide optimal near infrared at a consistent output for cell rejuvenation and anti-aging
  • High power near, mid, and far infrared wavelengths – a prime indicator of heater quality
  • Emissive coating produces more infrared per square inch over any other heater on the market

Near infrared - Near infrared (NIR) is the shortest infrared wavelength. Scientific research shows that when delivered at the vital wavelength of 880nm, without extreme heat or light, NIR promotes skin renewal, cell health, wound healing, and tissue growth. LEDs are effective because they can trigger a natural photo-biochemical reaction, similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue. And when the wave is pulsed, it can travel deeper into tissues. mPulse saunas got their name because the LEDs pulsate for optimal benefits.

Mid infrared - Mid infrared (MIR) is a longer wavelength that can penetrate deeper into the body’s soft tissue where inflammation occurs and speeds up the healing process. To produce MIR, sauna heaters must be able to maintain a surface temperature of 210⁰C. Though many sauna companies claim to provide full spectrum, the material used in their heaters actually melts at the high temperature required for MIR. We worked with engineers and scientists to source a high tech material made to withstand the temperature required.

Far infrared - The longest wavelength, far infrared (FIR), reaches deepest into the body, where toxins are stored. We’ve already achieved the most effective far infrared heater with our highly emissive Solocarbon heater coating and have applied that same coating to our polyimide panel. Instead of being sandwiched between layers, the coating is on the exterior of the heating panel. During the testing process, we discovered this application makes it 99% emissive!

Every mPulse sauna comes with a built in Android Control panel and 6 preset Wellness Programs. Each program utilizes different amount of each wavelength for the targeted result.

1. Cardio
2. Anti-Aging
3. Relaxation
4. Pain Relief
5. Weight loss
6. Detox
7. Custom program options – you can create your own program.

For those that don't have the space for the larger sauna or don't want to spend the money on the walk-in options, Sunlighten also has a portable infrared sauna called the Solo System.  For some, another advantage of the Solo sauna is that your head is outside of the system and thus does not get heated.  Some people find this makes the sauna therapy easier to tolerate.
