*I received a product in exchange for my review, but all opinions are my own.
I have done a lot of research in trying to come up with different ways to attack my chronic lyme disease, and an important factor that needs to be considered in any treatment of chronic illness is detox. As you are killing off pathogens, the body needs to be able to detox, or get rid of, what you've killed off. Sweating is one of the best ways to detox. Traditional saunas, however, can be very uncomfortable with the high heat levels and humidity. That's when I came across a Far Infrared Sauna, and found that Health and Med makes a Far Infrared Sauna Blanket!
It's is so convenient to be able to have it at home and not have to go anywhere. When it came in the mail, I had to set it up and try it right away. I was amazed at how good it felt, and not at all uncomfortable like I had imagined it might be. By about 15 minutes I was already sweating.
Setting it up was simple, you just connect the cords to the bottom of the blanket, plug into an outlet, and it's ready to go. You select the setting for each zone (1, 2 and 3), and then push start, so simple! I'm already noticing decreased joint pain and mobility, likely due to decrease in inflammation. I also just feel overall better. It's like my body had a lot it needed to get rid of but wasn't sweating enough on it's own. Also, I've been having issues with waking up in the night with anxiety, which I've read can be due to an overtaxed liver. This has also decreased, since FIR can help assist the liver with detox.
Some of the benefits of using a Far Infrared Sauna include: detox, relaxation, pain relief, improved circulation, weight loss, skin purification, improves heart function and stress relief along with much more.
Another important thing to look for if you're going to purchase an infrared sauna, is that's it's low EMF like this one. I also like how it doesn't take up a lot of room like traditional saunas, so it's easy to store between use.
Overall, this is an amazing product that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good detox method, which can be of great benefit even if you don't have a chronic illness.
