Infrared Sauna Testimonials
ARTHRITIS & DIABETES TESTIMONIAL
I still use my sauna every day and absolutely LOVE IT. As long as I sauna regularly, I have no pain or symptoms of arthritis in my knees. Last year during the holiday season, I stored the sauna and didn’t use it for a couple of months. Of course, my arthritis came back, but resuming the daily use of my sauna quickly eliminated it again.
Last year I developed Diabetes, and that really slowed my weight loss efforts down for a while. (I’ve lost 30 lbs. so far.) It took me a while to sift through many schools of thought about treatment and diet, but I now have a plan that is working. Not for even one second did I believe that I would have Diabetes and be on medication the rest of my life. From day one, I have said that I would beat this, and I am getting better all the time. I’ve already been able to eliminate the twice daily injections of Byetta and am down to just one Metformin pill in the evening. By the end of this year I expect to be off all medication and have no symptoms of Diabetes. I will be “healed” if not “cured”, just like my arthritis.
In order to accomplish this, I have chosen a fairly low carb (not to the Atkins level) and low fat diet that has really helped me start losing weight again. I expect to be back to a size 8 by the end of this year, and this alone will help me eliminate the insulin resistance portion of Diabetes.
Using the sauna every day is such a wonderful help with the weight loss because it burns calories, naturally boosts metabolism, and releases the nasty toxins trapped in fat cells. I look forward to my sauna time because the soothing heat is so relaxing, and it is the perfect time to pray and meditate. In today’s hectic world, there is almost no quiet time for reflection … we have gotten used to playing the radio while driving and have the TV on while we are at home.
Using the sauna is the perfect opportunity to press the “pause” button for 30 minutes. In the silence, as I pray and meditate, I am blessed with insights and wisdom. The far infrared sauna is the best investment I have ever made for my health. I feel so blessed to have this wonderful sauna, and I appreciate knowing that your lifetime guarantee will enable me to enjoy its benefits from now on.

INJURY RECOVERY TESTIMONIAL
In June 2005 I had a serious motor cycle accident and six months after I was still suffering from fluid retention, inflammation and swelling, lethargy, headaches and pain. In December 2005 I purchased a Sunlighten sauna for my clinic in Noosaville, QLD and used it to help me recover and rehabilitate.
I had 12 broken bones seven of which were in my upper thoracic spine. One disc was crushed 50%, bruised lung, head injury & post trauma shock. I am a natural therapist and realised that my body became very toxic not only from the trauma of the accident but also from x-ray radiation, and auxiliary medicine taken as a consequence of injuries sustained in the accident such as pain killers, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics and drugs for subsequent constipation due to all the other drugs and lake of mobility. I had fluid retention, headaches, food intolerances, depression and residual pain and inflammation from injuries.
After my second sauna session, all the fluid retention I was carrying completely disappeared and my body actually started to look more like it did before the accident. I tried to have a least 2 -3 half hour sessions per week. My skin became radiant, where the right side of my face had dropped slightly due to head injury; muscle tone had actually improved remarkably by about April-May. My energy levels improved remarkably also and I always noticed that I felt energised after the sauna sessions. My head became much clearer and I started to feel much better within myself. I was healing, detoxing, reducing inflammation and my sense of well being was returning. I honestly feel that my recovery would have been a long haul with some possible permanent disabilities due to injuries sustained.
I love my Sunlighten Sauna – without it I would not have been able to continue on with my job as a Remedial massage therapist, Homoeopath and Bowen therapist running a busy Noosa clinic. None of this would have been possible without the sauna, it was a ‘God sent’.
My clients love the sauna, they use it for injury recovery & management, detoxification, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, weight loss, hypertension, depression and some just for the pure enjoyment of a really great sauna.
The Sunlighten sauna has also enhanced my business, is very cost effective, requires minimal maintenance, easy to use, takes up little space yet is comfy enough to fit two people easily. I would never be without a Sunlighten infra-red sauna and would like to purchase one for the convenience & privacy of my home.

COMPLEMENTARY CANCER CARE
Cancer doctors: Heat therapies can play an important role in detoxification. “Artificially induced fever has the greatest potential in the treatment of many diseases, including cancer.”
Dr. Josef M. Issels
“Cancer cannot survive in an environment of temperatures more than 42 C. In addition to its detoxifying effects, far infrared heat actually helps kill cancer cells, increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy, and reduce the side-effects of conventional therapies.”
When you combine the best of complementary and orthodox cancer care, what do you get? Treatments such as far infrared heat therapy, which uses modern technology and ancient wisdom to help the body through its healing journey.
The ancient Greek doctor Parmenides once stated, “Give me a chance to create fever and I will cure any disease.” These days, more naturopathic and medical doctors, such as Drs. Jim Chan of Vancouver and John Cline of Nanaimo, are discovering how far infrared heat therapy indeed assists in one of the key tenets of wholistic cancer treatment: detoxification.
Why is far infrared therapy beneficial? It’s a form of heat (hyperthermic) treatment that involves artificially raising the temperature of the whole body by sauna, or a specific body part, in a very specific way. Heat is a form of energy. Far infrared heat energy penetrates deeply—four to five centimeters into the skin, the body’s largest detoxifying organ. Its molecular vibrations “jiggle” the tissues and speed up metabolic exchanges between cells.
Vancouver naturopathic physician Jim Chan, who has treated about 5,000 cancer patients, explains that far infrared therapy has the ability to break up the protective rings around harmful molecules in the body so they’re no longer cancer-causing. It also weakens the bonds between toxins and human tissues, so stored toxins can be flushed out of the system faster and in greater quantities through the skin (via sweating), liver and bowels.
Wholistic cancer treatment involves strengthening the immune system and killing toxic cancer cells, which can be done with interventions such as diet modifications, nutritional supplements, anti-cancer herbs, and the more orthodox chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
Positive mental attitude and stress reduction are also often recommended. But even if you’re doing everything else right, without good detoxification, unhealthy substances remain a burden in the body and can slow or prevent recovery.
Toxins we are all exposed to include carcinogenic heavy metals, and pesticides and other chemicals in food, household products, water and air. Many of these toxins are stored in our body’s fat cells and accumulate over time. However, the toxic load of cancer patients is routinely even higher than in the average person.
Cancer cannot survive in an environment of temperatures more than 42 degrees C. In addition to its detoxifying effects, far infrared heat actually helps kill cancer cells, increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy, and reduce the side-effects of conventional therapies. At the same time, it boosts the body’s regenerative abilities and decreases pain by increasing circulation, which makes it beneficial in treating other conditions such as arthritis, gout, poor circulation, neuralgia and abnormal nerve function.
At the Cline Medical Center in Nanaimo, medical doctor John Cline supervises successful cleansing programs involving far infrared heat. “Organizations such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency have now taken a serious look at hyperthermic therapy as a means to detoxify individuals who are ill from exposure to environmental poisons and several good research have been published,” he writes in a recent wellness bulletin.
In one cancer study by the European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology that examined five-year survival rates of patients with malignant melanoma, 28 per cent of those who underwent only radiation survived five years. Of those who combined radiation and hyperthermia treatment once a week, 46 per cent survived. Neither group did any other wholistic therapies.
Another trial at St. Georg Hospital in Bad Aibling, Germany involved late-stage ovarian cancer patients who had previously undergone chemotherapy. Using a combination of chemotherapy and hyperthermia, 69 per cent experienced positive improvements, and 15.5 per cent went into remission.
Investigations into far infrared and other heat treatments will no doubt continue to move mainstream as science, technology and good old common sense come together. As the late, great cancer doctor, Josef M. Issels, known for the incredible successes in treating “incurable” cases, said about heat therapy: “Artificially induced fever has the greatest potential in the treatment of many diseases, including cancer.”

CRONIC PAIN PATIENT
I tried the Far Infrared Sauna on the 7th Tuesday and was extremely happy with the result. I had a car accident around 4 years ago. My femur snapped in 4 places and I had a titanium rod and screws inserted into my leg. As a result, I have chronic back, neck and shoulder pain. I have tried everything from Chiro, Physio, Acupuncture however it’s only temporary relief for a few days and then the chronic pain returns. I heard about the Far Infrared through a friend of mine and I thought I had nothing to lose and wanted to give it a try. It was really affordable and I was eager to try something new. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least!
Prior to the treatment, I had a really stiff and sore shoulder, neck and back which I thought nothing could fix. As the treatment finished, I could honestly say I have never felt that relaxed and “normal” since the car accident. The pain significantly subsided – It was unbelievable!
It’s been under one week now and at this stage, with other treatments, my pain would have returned. Currently, there is only a little pain and discomfort that has returned – and this is only after 1 treatment! I’m really looking forward to the end result after 10 treatments! I am certain that my body will be back to 100% by committing to this treatment.
AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!!! I would recommend it to anyone, even if you don’t have chronic pain. It really revives your body and is so relaxing!
Thanks Christine! You are so wonderful for taking this treatment out to the world!
HEALTH – MENTAL – DETOX – INFERTILITY
Two years ago in March 2006 my wife and I decided to seek help as we had being trying to conceive a baby but to no avail.
We were given the name of a great GP in St Kilda East who specialises in Integrative Medicine and suggested we not only do a detox but check for the presence of heavy metals.
When we got the results back we were a little shocked to see the high lead and mercury levels in our bodies, we did an intestinal detox as well as we decided to purchase the Sunlight solo system.
Well after 6 months of intensive use the results where amazing, our mercury and lead levels came down considerably after a further 4 months of treatment my wife’s mercury levels were quite insignificant.
It took a further year of good solid nutrition and building up our bodies before we achieved our goal, my wife fell pregnant in Feb of 2008 – Praise God. We will be expecting in the end of October.
I would recommend the Sunlight Sauna to anyone who is serious about their health.
I am a 42 years old lady. At the age of 40 I was told I was in menopause all symptoms followed, hot flushes, weight gain especially around the middle, headaches, weak nails. Soon after I was told I had a under active thyroid and found it very hard to lose weight. April I started Sunlight Sauna detox sessions, and continued all of June and July almost every third day in the beautiful quite peaceful cabin, I sweated toxin’s out of my body and felt totally refreshed with each session. In this time I lost 4.3 kgs in weight and felt really wonderful.
Before commencing I had not had a menstrual cycle for 2years, and In the time I had my Sunlight detox sessions I had 3 periods. After Specialists has told me, no more babies were possible, something magical happened. I am 9 weeks pregnant and feeling quite sick in the mornings. Now I was not trying to fall pregnant, but we are both very happy. I feel anyone that does the program, will gain enormous benefits and get back to heath. I now know how special Sunlight Saunas are, and hope more people take the time to find out for themselves.
Aged 52 arthritic, pre menopausal and overweight. I have had ten sessions in the Sunlight infrared sauna. After the first session, and for the first time in several months, the arthritic pain in my hands all but disappeared. The effect lasted for 2 days. Thereafter the pain disappeared after each session and the night after each session I was able to sleep without waking in the middle of the night. Sleeping right through the night enabled me to feel more energetic the next day. And more energy meant that I was more active. For someone who is pre-menopausal and suffering arthritis this was a big improvement.
I am skeptical that the product will do all that the manufacturers claim but it certainly made me feel better. The experience itself is very pleasant. Sitting for half an hour in a warm, quite place is very calming and totally “me” time.
I am a vegetarian, I find it difficult to follow the low carb diets, as many of them place a lot of emphasis on animal proteins. I was finding that my aerobic exercises were not shifting my spare tyre and decided to go on the Herbs first and lost 3kg in 10 days then started to have 3 Sunlight Sauna detox treatments a week. Wow so amazing my tummy is almost flat and I have also found I go regularly to the toilet as I have had problems in that department. Best thing for me is how much energy I have, so my gym visits are more affective.
Follow this space.
I have been on a downhill run for the last 2 years, I am 35 years old. I have had many health problems: polycystic ovaries, infrequent periods and constant PMS. I suffered terribly from IBS [irritable bowel syndrome] and heartburn, not to mention feeling bloated all the time. I had also developed asthma and back ache, from the strain of being so overweight. I was seriously considering having stomach lipo, because none of the treatments that I had tried had helped my condition. Prescription and over the counter diet drugs were ineffective, and I couldn’t stick to a diet for long enough to make it work.
As a last ditch attempt, It made sense to me to try the Sauna detox as I have tried so many diets and wondered why they don’t work. It was simple enough, sounded pretty sensible and looked like something I could make a go of. Best thing I have had 2 periods in a row and feeling so good as I don’t have any problems with fluid. Best part lost 2 kg and 6 inches off my waist. So I will keep up my program through winter and Anna said she will follow my results.
So talk to you soon.
There’s always people saying “forty, fat and finished”. Well I’m almost there now. I never thought I would have this problem though, until my holiday snaps came back. That’s when I realized I had to do something to lose the belly! It’s not that I eat a lot, but my job is mainly sitting behind a desk every day. Driving to and from work doesn’t help a lot either, but what can you do. The job has always been bit hectic, traveling, eating in restaurants and hotels. Not that I complain about it, but when I am home I haven’t felt like going to the gym.
When I started following your system, it actually changed. It took me 3 weeks to lose 4.3 kilos I’ve kept the weight off too. It’s so easy and I’m really surprised that nobody else have discovered this secret.
Sunlight Saunas are great.
I have just completed eight sessions in the Sunlight Sauna cabin. I am 38 years old and was diagnosed with Crohns Disease over 3 years ago. I take prescription medication to treat Crohns and although it keeps the disease at bay (most of the time) it lowers your immune system so I always feel tired and run down. After a while you accept this as normal. I went into this detox program with an open mind, with nothing to lose. If it helped with any aspect of the disease then I would be happy. The night before my first treatment, I had about 4 hours sleep so was feeling very very flat. After the treatment I definitely felt very energized and slept very well that night. As treatment progressed I felt my lungs were clearer and my sleeping continued to improve. My eyes have felt the best they have in ages; they no longer feel gritty and tired. My skin looks and feels amazing. I just had great energy and a relaxed feeling. I think the best way to describe the results or me is that a fog had been lifted. It really did seem to re-balance me and a great way to de-stress.
I would happily recommend a Sunlight Sauna cabin to anyone, especially those with a chronic disease.
I am 56 years old and have always had high triglycerides. My dad was a chiropractor and said it was genetic. Dad’s triglycerides were high and he couldn’t get his down. After using my Sunlight sauna 5 times a week for 8 weeks I had a blood test. My triglycerides went from 163 to 67. My cholesterol went from 161 to 145. My LDL’s went from 59 to 61 and my HDL’s went from 69 to 71. As an extra benefit, I also lost 6 pounds and dropped almost 2 sizes. I used to wear a tight size 16 and now I am at a loose size 14.
Go Sunlight! Happy detoxing.
