"The Daily '15-Minute Habit' that Helps
Burn Toxins Out of Your Body"

Sit down and relax with your family and friends - and let unwanted toxins pour out of your body as you relieve stress, soothe your muscles, and cleanse your skin (helping it feel softer and more beautiful).
Take advantage of this today...

Even though its origin is still somewhat of a mystery, most experts agree the Finns have used some form of this for hundreds, maybe even thousands of years.

And just like many things that have been modified over time by the current culture, the original purpose of this ancient Finnish 'institution' has been somewhat misunderstood.

For many centuries, the Finns have had some sort of sweat bath or what later became known as a sauna. But they didn't look at or use their sweat baths as they're used today. Long before modern indoor plumbing and running water, it was one of the simplest and most efficient ways for them to bathe and keep clean.

Farmers Using Finnish Sauna
For the Finns, with plenty of water available, the sauna
was one of the cleanest and warmest bathing areas.
Farmers used it to relax their muscles and joints
after a hard day's work.

So what's been known as a traditional Finnish sauna is actually an ancient form of a bath. Within the Finnish culture, with plenty of water on hand, the sauna was one of their cleanest, warmest bathing areas.

The sauna was far more than just a place of social gathering… farmers used it to relax their muscles and joints after a hard day's work… and any special holiday or feast day usually meant a sauna the night before.

One of the most important benefits of a sauna that hasn't changed much over time is how it can help relax your mind and body… how it can provide an exhilarating feeling of well-being.

I'll have more coming up on all the benefits and how you can take advantage of this extraordinary 'bath'… even in the privacy of your own home.

But first, I doubt the Finns and others who regularly took saunas centuries ago had much of an idea what made them feel so good… what was actually happening to their bodies during a sweat bath. Here's…

What Deep-Sweating Triggers in Your Body

Even with today's more active lifestyles, many folks don't actively sweat on a regular basis… some avoid it at all costs, viewing it as offensive, and maybe even unhealthy.

Deep Sweating Triggers
Research shows how deep sweating
can provide various benefits.

But research shows how deep-sweating can provide a multitude of vitality benefits.

Regular bathing in a sauna can help you benefit from a deep sweat because in the heat of a sauna…

  • Core body temperatures begin to rise…
  • Sweat glands are stimulated to produce sweat, beginning the process of cleansing your skin.

This deep-sweating is all part of the sauna lifestyle that can help you look and feel better.

I'm sure the ancient Finns did not have much of a clue about the science behind sweating. But they certainly felt the relaxing benefits from time spent in their sweat baths… and still do today.

But this doesn't totally explain the potential benefits from sweating in a sauna… only what happens to your body while you're in there.

Let's cut right to the chase and take a deep dive into…

7 Compelling Reasons for Indulging in a Sauna

Research suggests many different types of benefits from taking a sauna. One very important benefit a sauna can provide is to help people sweat.

The chart below will give you a taste of the wide range of potential benefits, and why I recommend you consider taking a sauna on a regular basis…

Benefit How it works and explanations
1. Helps relieve stress It provides a warm quiet place to relax without distractions.
2. Relaxes muscles and helps soothe aches and soreness High temperatures help soothe.
3. Flushes toxins Deep sweating can help reduce levels of unwanted toxins picked up from your environment.
4. Cleanses skin Sweating helps rinse and cleanse your skin’s epidermal layer and sweat ducts. Cleansing of your pores gives your skin a soft, beautiful appearance.
5. May help you sleep better because you are more relaxed May help you relax, which may help you fall asleep around bedtime.
6. Provides recreation and social benefits Relaxing environment to socialize with family and friends.
7. Helps you feel good Helps you relax and restore body and soul.

To me, one of the most important benefits is the way a sauna helps flush toxins from your body.

I'll reveal more of the details on what I believe are some of the best complementary ways to effectively reduce toxins coming up. But before I do that, let's take a closer look at…

Traditional or Infrared – Which One Is For You?

Sauna Technology Evolved
Sauna technology has evolved over time since the early
Finnish savu saunas (smoke saunas).

Over time, sauna technology has evolved since the early Finnish savu saunas (smoke saunas) and sweat baths.

Today, there are really two major types of saunas… Traditional and Infrared (IR). And technology has taken the IR sauna to another level in what's called Far-Infrared.

In the end, I believe it really boils down to personal preference as to which one folks choose to use.

Here's a detailed comparison of these two types and why you might choose one over the other. The amazing thing is that from either one, you can reap the benefits of deep sweating… and now, either one can be easily installed in your home…



Traditional vs. Far-Infrared Sauna Comparison
  Traditional Far-Infrared
Sauna temperatures Steam with higher temperatures – 150 to 185° F Lower temperatures with body-penetrating heat – 120-140°F
Humidity User controls humidity by amount of water sprinkled on rocks Tends to be close to normal house humidity levels, as bather has no control over this factor
Sweating temperatures High temperature needed to induce sweating Goal not to achieve high temperature – IR emitters generate deep penetrating infrared heat
Comfort levels Bathers enjoy pouring water on rocks to create steam and raise humidity levels – Makes room more comfortable for some Bathers will feel hot and sweat profusely but at a lower overall sauna temperature
Steam vs. Infrared Steam helps moisten nasal passages and allows use of aromatherapy by mixing essential oils with the water Far-infrared energy deeply penetrates the skin and warms the muscles and joints – Carbon IR emitters produce wavelengths for deep penetration
Sauna startup Bathers should allow 30-40 minutes for sauna to warm up Bathers can use the sauna immediately after it’s turned on – Some prefer to wait a few minutes until the sauna is around 110° F
Session times Recommended session time = 10-15 minutes Recommended session time = 10-15 minutes – But lower temperature allows longer bathing (20-30 minutes not uncommon)
Energy costs Estimated energy cost – At $0.11 per hour (estimated average cost per kilowatt hour in US), first hour cost around $0.37 and $0.25/hour after that (Results will vary based on how regularly you bathe and your local cost of electricity.) Estimated energy cost – At $0.11 per hour (estimated average cost per kilowatt hour in US), cost is around $0.18. Typical use cost = $.07-$0.10 (Results will vary based on how regularly you bathe and your local cost of electricity.)

Whether you favor a traditional sauna or a far-infrared one, the potential benefits are many when used in a proper manner.

Regardless of your personal preference, there are a few things you can do to enhance your time in a sauna…

10 Tips and Tricks to Better Enjoy the Experience

Now that you know about many of the potential benefits of a sauna, here are a few tips on how to enjoy your experience even more. Saunas can be used by almost all healthy adults if you follow some simple rules.

10 tips and tricks to get the most out of your sauna experience…

  1. Avoid staying inside any sauna for longer than 30 minutes.
  2. Be sure to properly hydrate with fresh, pure water before and after taking a sauna and if you are sweating profusely, you will want to consider replacing your electrolytes with something like Himalayan salt.
  3. Take the sauna with a family member or close friend, or make sure someone checks on you every so often.
  4. If you have any kind of ailment or are sensitive to heat, check with your healthcare professional prior to partaking.
  5. Far-infrared emitters do not work through clothing. So, disrobe as much as possible to optimize the heating and sweating effects.
  6. Work up to regular use over time. You don't have to take a 20 minute sauna from the get-go. Start slowly to build up an acceptable comfort level.
  7. Try to remain relaxed, quiet, and reflect on positive emotions. Listening to some soothing background music may help you unwind and relax.
  8. Choosing Traditional or Far-Infrared Sauna
    It really boils down to personal
    preference as to whether you enjoy
    a traditional or far-infrared sauna.
  9. When finished, take a shower, warm or cool, but not hot. Avoid using soap as you're already clean and soap tends to clog your pores. Wash off your sweat with a skin brush or loofa.
  10. After showering, sit or lie down for at least 10 minutes for final reflections on your sauna experience.
  11. Enhance your sauna experience even more with an integrated health plan for optimal wellness… more coming up on how to do this.

These simple steps help you reap the full benefit of the sauna experience. As you become more conditioned to this type of bathing, you will sweat more easily. Also, you will become more comfortable with more heat as your body dissipates heat more efficiently.

Some people enjoy the hot, steamy environment in the traditional sauna. They like pouring water on the rocks to create more steam and humidity. They find this hotter environment more exhilarating than the infrared sauna.

Others enjoy the lower temperature environment of the far-infrared sauna. They like being able to benefit from deep sweating without the higher temperatures needed in the traditional sauna.

Once again, it really comes down to personal preference. My preference is the infrared sauna and let me show you why beginning with…

What Is Far-Infrared Heat and How Does It Work?

Before we jump into how a far-infrared sauna works, one of the most fascinating points is how traditional saunas actually heat using infrared as well.

But the majority of the heat is created by conduction and convection, with a lesser amount generated by infrared heat emitted from the rocks themselves. Plus, the infrared heat generated in the traditional sauna has a highly variable wavelength and intensity when compared to the far-infrared sauna.

Here are some important facts about far-infrared and why the technology creates what many feel is the ultimate sauna…

  • Infrared waves are part of the invisible Electromagnetic Spectrum (EM).
  • The EM Spectrum is measured in microns and is approximately subdivided into near-infrared (0.7 to 2 microns)… medium or mid-infrared (2 to 4 microns)… and far-infrared (4 to 1000 microns).
  • Humans naturally send and receive far-infrared waves generally in the 6 to 20 micron range.
  • The often referred to 'Vital Range' of far-infrared is in the 7 to 14 micron range… with optimal levels of 8.4 to 9.4 microns.
  • Having a sauna designed to generate far-infrared wavelengths in the 'Vital Range' is important because of the potential to sweat more efficiently, and possible resulting effects.
  • When you use far-infrared rays (optimally in the 'Vital Range') in a sauna, your body temperature naturally rises, but the surrounding air does not. So, you feel hot and benefit from deep sweating without requiring the higher heat necessary in a traditional sauna.

So, this should give you a basic idea about far-infrared technology and why I feel it's such an incredible solution for saunas. I truly like how quick a far-infrared sauna heats up and how the environment inside does not need to be so hot for me to comfortably sweat.

Different Types of Far-Infrared Saunas

With far-infrared sauna technology, things do get a bit more complicated because different types of infrared heating systems exist to generate the waves.

I feel it's important to know these differences, because of the three types, I only find one type of infrared emitter to be acceptable. I found only one that delivers consistent wavelengths in the 'Vital Range.' Plus, there's another concern I have with the other types which I'll let you in on.

The three main types of far-infrared saunas are…

  • Ceramic - Produces infrared waves through small ceramic heaters placed throughout the sauna. Tends to create many uneven 'hot spots' running at very high temperatures and can generate very high electromagnetic fields (EMF).
  • Metal Rods - Generates infrared heat through metal rods randomly placed throughout the sauna. Lower-priced saunas tend to use this technology because it's inexpensive. But usually provides inconsistent heat distribution with potentially risky 'hot spots.' Also consumes high amounts of electricity and can produce extremely high levels of EMF.
  • Carbon - Newest technology available today for producing far-infrared waves. Can provide wavelengths of 8.4 to 9.4 microns ('Vital Range') and consistent temperatures. EMF can be very low and cost of operation is pennies per session.

So, of the three types, I think you understand why a carbon-based sauna is my sauna of choice. And you should know, not all carbon-based saunas are created equal and careful selection is a must.

You've read quite a bit so far about EMF and how I feel low EMF is important. But why is low EMF such an important factor in determining the best sauna for your use?

The Dangers of EMF and What You Should Look Out For

You may not fully appreciate how you're chronically exposed to something that can deteriorate your health… an exposure that is completely invisible, tasteless, and odorless.

The exposure I'm referring to and am very concerned about is electromagnetic fields, or EMF.

EMF surrounds you… where you live… where you work… where you relax and exercise… regardless of whether you're inside or outside.

Here are the five main sources of EMF that surround you on a daily basis…

    EMF Exposure Impact
    EMF sources exist everywhere you go and are
    cumulative in potentially impacting your health. I believe
    limiting your EMF exposure is an important step in
    protectingyour overall wellbeing.
  • Electric fields - These are the fields that emanate from anything that has voltage… basically anything electric, such as lamps, electrical wiring, outlets, extension cords, electrical appliances, and power outlets.
  • Magnetic fields - These fields can occur when there's an imbalance in the electrical wiring, and around electrical motors such as the motor in your refrigerator. A major source of these fields is next to the power meter for your house.
  • Power lines - These fields are obviously everywhere.
  • Metal plumbing - Certain types of plumbing, particularly old metal plumbing, can frequently carry a current that conducts EMF.
  • Wireless Communications - This includes wireless power meters (so-called Smart-Meters), cell phones, cell towers, wireless routers, and cordless phones. Most of these types of technologies expose you to both electric and magnetic fields.

I strongly believe limiting your exposure to EMF is an important step in protecting your overall health and well-being… and that certainly includes limiting your EMF exposure in a sauna. That's why I recommend you select a traditional sauna with very low EMF, or a far-infrared carbon-based sauna which can have very low or even non-existent EMF.

I believe I have just the low-EMF sauna solutions for you… coming up.

How to Enhance Your Sauna Experience Even More

Just taking an exhilarating sauna by itself can be both enjoyable and invigorating.

But what if you coupled your sauna sessions with an integrated health program? To me, this is an even better way to take full advantage of all a sauna has to offer. It's one of the most important '10 Tips and Tricks' I mentioned above for complementing your sauna experience and enhancing your overall health.

Here are a few recommendations for you on how to better integrate your sauna into an overall wellness program…

    Workout Prior to Sauna
    Regular exercise is a key element in any
    integrated health program. Working out
    prior to a sauna can help liberate
    more toxins.
  • Eat wholesome, preferably organic foods – If you're interested in a full step-by-step nutrition plan, you can find my recommendations on the right side of my home page.
  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water – You may want to check your source of drinking water and consider filtration if there are issues.
  • Reduce your exposure to EMF – We talked above about how low EMF is important to your health, and what sources to watch out for. In my opinion, using a low-EMF sauna is crucial to your integrated health plan.
  • Avoid exposure to toxic chemicals – Become more aware of your environment and what's around you.
  • Breathe clean, fresh air – Not always easily accomplished. But avoid staying indoors too much and seek out invigorating outdoor air.
  • Get plenty of sleep and rest to help create and maintain a positive attitude – Keep your stress level under control.
  • Exercise on a regular basis as this can generate sweating as well – Working out 30-60 minutes prior to taking a sauna will help liberate some of the toxins from your fat and make them ready for elimination.

Protecting the Environment – A Key Selection Factor

One very important factor I instilled in my team when they were evaluating different saunas is that only environmentally friendly models would be acceptable.

With my line of Vitality Saunas, you can rest assured the materials come from 'green' friendly sources and the models are energy efficient. Here are just a few key points on how my saunas are energy efficient and help protect the environment…

    Vitality Sauna Models
    Vitality Sauna have been
    designed to go easy on the
    environment and your electric
    bill as well.
  • Wood/timber comes from the US, Canada, and Scandinavia – World leaders in timber harvest ecology.
  • Saunas were designed to be energy efficient both at holding heat and delivering the heat.
  • All of the Vitality Sauna models plug into standard 120 volt household circuits.
  • Typical energy usage is $3-$5 a month for far-infrared and $5-$10 per month for the traditional model. (Results will vary based on how regularly you bathe and your local cost of electricity.)
  • For the traditional model, very little water is used during a session – Typical usage is 1 quart of water which is far less than a shower.

In addition, Vitality Saunas have been shown to not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) with little or no EMF. You're already aware of my concerns over the cumulative effects of EMF. So, this is certainly good news you can appreciate.

Speaking of EMF, how do my saunas stack up against the competition?

How My Saunas Are Leaders in Low EMF

My team has gone to great lengths to make sure the sauna models we're offering have low EMF emissions.

Here's a chart clearly showing how both my traditional and far-infrared saunas are distinct leaders in low EMF emissions…

Ideally, the readings should all be below 3 mG when you are at normal seated distance from the heating coils.

Brand EMF Performance*
Mercola Vitality Saunas – IR & Traditional models 0 – 10 mG
Competitor A – Infrared Saunas 3 – 50 mG
Competitor B – Infrared Saunas 30 – 100+ mG
Competitor C – Ceramic Infrared Saunas 40 – 100+ mG
Competitor D – Metal Rod Infrared Saunas 60 – 100+ mG
Competitor E – Traditional Saunas 50 – 150+ mG
*mG is milligauss, a unit of measurement for magnetic field strength.  

Once again, you should see how I've made good on my commitment for low EMF emission saunas. My Vitality Sauna models stand above the competition when it comes to EMF and will not significantly add to your cumulative EMF number.

Quick and Easy Assembly Within Your Own Home

 

Infrared Vitality Sauna 3
All Vitality Sauna models fit beautifully
into your home, are quickly assembled
in less than an hour, and can be
up-and-running in no time at all.

Another determining factor in selecting a manufacturer to partner with was the saunas had to be capable of easy and quick assembly inside your home.

That's right. I was only interested in portable saunas that fit neatly into an appropriate room within your home. But, it was also very important that the saunas look attractive and fit into the décor of the surrounding area.

With all my Vitality Sauna models, you can rest assured each one is both very functional and attractive at the same time. Plus, my team succeeded in finding models that can be easily assembled by two people using standard household tools in less than an hour.

I cannot stress the importance of this enough… who wants to spend hours trying to assemble a sauna only to find out they need to hire a skilled professional and/or an electrician? Well, it's certainly something I never wanted to do… and now, you won't have to go down that road as well.

Take a look at the picture. It demonstrates how my larger far-infrared corner-unit model, Infrared Vitality Sauna 3, looks attractive and fits well into the room.

Why Selecting the Right Wood Is So Important

Some manufacturers of in-home saunas use the cheapest wood they can find… or even synthetic wood is often used. With special finishes, often synthetic as well, the look of the sauna can be well-disguised and appear very attractive simulating natural wood.

Natural Hemlock Trees
Only the finest natural hemlock
was used in the construction of
Vitality Sauna models.

But don't be fooled. With my line of Vitality Saunas, real hemlock wood was used. And the benefits go beyond simply creating an attractive natural look.

Hemlock is the wood of choice because…

  • It's been chosen from select sustainable forests that promote responsible forest management systems and support 'green' environment initiatives.
  • It's one of the only naturally hypo-allergenic wood species that also performs well in a sauna environment.
  • The wood is very consistent and tight-grained, free of pitch and resins, and creates a very rich appearance.
  • It has the ability to easily absorb and store heat evenly, and is easy to maintain and keep clean.

My team was meticulous in selecting a manufacturer who could provide portable in-home saunas made from some of the best natural wood finishes available. No corners were cut here in providing you a beautifully attractive and optimally-functional sauna.

A Manufacturing Partner Second to None

By now, you probably know my team found a fantastic experienced partner to produce my Vitality Saunas. I couldn't be more pleased with their approach to both user-friendliness (easy to assemble units) and protecting the environment as well.

Here are just some of the reasons I decided to choose this manufacturer over others…

  • Original company established in 1919 in Finland. What better place to have solid traditional roots in making the best saunas?
  • Company has become the largest sauna company in the world through innovation, dedicated product development, and commitment to quality.
  • Over 2 million satisfied customers around the world have made these saunas the products of choice for homes and clubs.
  • Manufacturer is committed to producing a green friendly product through meticulous sourcing of materials – Company received the Lloyds Register of London Certificate (ISO-12001-2004) for "Environmental Management System."
  • Manufacturer has earned one of the most important seals for electrical standards from ETL (Electrical Testing Laboratories). It's one of the most difficult seals to obtain and basically assures the electrical aspects of the saunas are of the highest quality, from control panels to wiring.

There should be little doubt why I chose this manufacturer to produce my Vitality Sauna models. I'm truly impressed with their commitments to quality and the environment.

Why My Saunas Are a Breed Apart

The summary below outlines the key factors why I feel my Vitality Saunas stand out from the competition… and why I highly recommend them for your personal in-home use…

Feature Benefit
Both traditional and far-infrared models available Gives you added flexibility in your personal sauna preference. Some like the higher steamy-heat of the traditional sauna… some the lower dry-heat of the far-infrared. You make the choice.
Very low EMF emissions Helps curb the cumulative effect of EMF on your overall health and well-being. EMF is everywhere in your environment and adding even more makes no sense at all when it can be minimized.  
Carbon-based heaters for far-infrared models These types of far-infrared heaters have a significant advantage over ceramic and metal-rod heaters. Carbon heaters can provide wavelengths of 8.4-9.4 microns to keep EMF very low and create consistent temperatures.  
Energy-efficient model designs By helping keep your monthly electrical costs to a minimum, this makes the in-home sauna more affordable for everyone.
Easy and quick DIY installation No one wants to spend days putting their sauna together with special tools or have to pay a professional. My design gets you up-and-running in less than an hour so you can start enjoying the sauna experience right away.
Hemlock wood from US, Canada, and Scandinavia used Who would think the wood is so important? But it is. And hemlock is not only chosen from select sustainable forests that promote responsible forest management systems, but its consistent grain delivers one of the most even-heating sources available.  
Attractive, innovative space-saving models fit decor All models have been carefully designed to not only fit easily into many different-sized rooms, but to complement your décor with its beautiful, light and natural hemlock finish as well.  
Easy to maintain and clean The hemlock wood used in each sauna design is a major factor in sauna maintenance. Its natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties contribute to easy cleanup and overall maintenance.
Uses standard 120V outlet No special wiring or hookup needed. Just plug into a standard 3-prong electrical outlet when you’re ready to get started. No need to hire an electrician.
ETL approved Provides a high-level of confidence knowing all the models are electrically sound and reliable.
High-quality manufacturer With the commitment to quality this manufacturer provides, you’ll be able to enjoy the sauna lifestyle for years to come.
Phenomenal Warranty Peace-of-mind knowing you have a limited lifetime warranty on the IR emitters (infrared models only), 5 years on the electrical, and 1 year on the sound system.

Now, you should see what I feel so strongly about these saunas and why I've used infrared saunas in my home for 15 years and now regularly use my Vitality Saunas as I find it is a great place to relax, unwind, and help eliminate toxins… all in the privacy and comfort of my own home.
