Chemical and heavy metal toxins are now pervasive in our lives and NO ONE is without exposure, even before birth. Toxins damage DNA, lead to neurological problems, disrupt the functioning of hormones, impede the absorption of nutrients, damage energy metabolism, and can manifest as one or more of a long list of symptoms. These problems can strike even early in life, though when they afflict older people, are sometimes dismissed as a “natural” consequence of aging. We think none of these problems should be an accepted part of modern life.
No other solution comes close to correcting toxic exposure like the Thermal Life infrared sauna. It is recommended by the most health practitioners including some of the most respected and cutting-edge experts in their fields. Our infrared saunas are found world-wide in some of the most progressive clinics, as well as the homes of people who make health a priority.
Every day you are adding to your internal toxic burden with further exposure – there is no better time to start changing that than today.
No other sauna company knows as much about detoxification as High Tech Health, and no other company specializes in providing the best sauna possible for this purpose. Because of our long history of doing this, we have successfully helped more people than any other company – including some of the sickest of the sick, people with problems other sauna companies don’t understand and couldn’t begin to address.
These are the reasons more doctors and health practitioners recommend our far infrared sauna than any other.
After extensive research, we found poplar to be the superior wood of choice in saunas for health-minded people.
Cedar was the original wood used for saunas because of its ability to withstand high heat, water, and exposure to the elements. Since modern saunas do not operate at such high heats, do not require the use of either fire or water, and are usually used indoors, cedar is no longer either necessary or recommended.
In fact, the use of cedar for saunas, actually contributes to the “total toxic burden” of the sauna user. Cedar wood contains terpines (volatile oils that are lung irritants). The cedrene* and cedral* in the wood are lung irritants and can also produce gastrointestinal symptoms, aspiration and pulmonary toxicity, and other problems.
Poplar wood does not outgas any chemicals or have strong, objectionable odors making it superior to cedar, redwood, hemlock, and basswood for individuals addressing health problems related to toxicity or those with allergies, chronic disease, or chemical sensitivities. Poplar is the wood recommended by toxicologists for clinical or home use of therapy saunas used for medical purposes.
In addition to using the best, safest wood, our windows are made of safe tempered glass. Glass brings none of the concerns one might have with a plastic window off-gassing and contributing to a person’s total toxic burden.
