Those who sweat a lot won't have to worry about bacteria harvesting as cedar saunas are anti bacterial and makes it hard for bacteria and other harmful germs to multiply on its service. They use premium cuts of cedar wood. Most of the cheaper saunas that use cedar don't have the deep redish shades of cedar and are not center cut woods. Also, I only promote their 2 person saunas as the heaters are closer to the body so the body absorbs the rays. Remember, larger saunas are not for detox. Below is the 2 person sauna that is my best selling carbon/ceramic combo sauna.
My sauna quiz questions are designed to help you pick out the sauna based on the answers you choose. My goal is to pick out a sauna I think you would like best as if you had the chance to try each and every sauna before you bought. There is no hidden agenda built into the questions. It is only based on the answers you select.
I am in contact with many of the sauna manufactures in the USA and Canada and will recommend a sauna brand and also tell you why I recommended that one based on your answers. Feel free to take the quiz twice if 2 or more people will be using it. I will contact you back personally and give you the results from your quiz.

Many people want to sweat like a pig and raise their core temp quickly and others want to detox and do a longer and slower session.
Some saunas deliver more far infrared and can detox people quicker but if their liver is already overloaded it can be too much.
Many people drink a lot of water in the sauna but all this does is keep the body from sweating and the core temperature lower. I prefer to drink afterwards and let my body core heat up. When my body is ready to get out of the sauna it will. When the body core is higher the fat cells can vibrate and release the toxins faster. The dosages of the low temperature far infrared should be balanced with the high temperatures.
Detoxing the fat cells by sweating like a pig can mean temporary fat loss as the fat is used for energy while removing the toxins from the fat can mean more permanent fat loss. If the body can't process all these toxins they can diffuse back into the body. I strongly recommend an aggressive probiotic and liver supplement if a person is going to be doing a heavy detox.
Note: detoxing in a sauna is a 3 part problem. 1. Your liver must release enough "lipo philic" toxins into the bile. 2. Enough must trigger the bile to release so the lipo philic toxins make it to the gut. 3. The lipo philic toxins need to prevent from being reabsorbed. Most people get in the sauna and want to get out and try to get the job done as quick as possible and they never get the chance to release these toxins out of the body. They just get reabsorbed.
When these toxins don't get released and relocate in the body this is when more problems happen. Most people trying to detox in a sauna don't have a good enough elimination system to start with to do the full sessions the way how all the people with these crazy testimonials give on most manufacturer's websites. Its just a low minority of people.
Most people abandon using the infrared sauna when they don't see results and blame it on the sauna. The a good sauna usually can do the job but if the lymphatic system is too sluggish and the person is not supplementing their deficient immune system.
The people that do frequent and long sauna sessions have a small guarantee they will detox. Most people over do it when thy don't see results and usually abandon the sauna after 3 months when they don't see results. Lipo philic (fat toxins) are fat soluble, not water soluble so just sweating like a pig a bunch of water based sweat usually doesn't help those trying to detox.
Also, over detoxing in a sauna faster than the body can process the wastes can cause lipo philic toxicity. If the toxins that were in storage in the fat cells move into healthy cells, this is when there can be severe damage to the cells. (Many people go in for 2 hours twice a day thinking they can speed up their detox). The liver can only process so much a day and produce so much bile enzymes.
The best way to see if the liver is in good health is to see how quickly your skin prunes after a hot bath. The liver when toxic is deficient in sterols an the skin will be resistant to water. After taking a long hot bath, see how long it takes your fingers to prune. If your liver if healthy or toxic, it will take longer or quicker for pruning to take place. Most people prune very quickly.
I know this won't make sense to some people but eating a high hat diet is better when trying to detox the toxins out of the fat in the body. This high fat intake can dilute the lipophilic toxins that are being released so they won't get reabsorbed back into the body. Yes, you heard it right, when trying to lose weight a "CALORIE ENHANCED" DIET is what I am recommending.
These high fat meals help to release bile from the liver so the actual lipids and toxins actually get processed and eliminated. People are so stupid they go on a low fat diet. Read a high school anatomy book on the gall bladder and liver section. Bile release is immediately triggered when there are fast in the stomach. The bile releasing helps the liver to dump the toxins its holding into the gut. Also when high fat is in the body it should dilute the bile with all these toxins in the gut so it won't get reabsorbed back into the body.
Note: the more fiber eaten while on this high fat diet helps bulk the toxins so they won't get reabsorbed. The best I've found is to get psyllium fiber from the health food store. I stir it very quick so it doesn't thicken before I you drink it. Most people think they will get fat from eating a lot of fat which is true but when eating the fiber it absorbs the toxins and fats to help so it doesn't get reabsorbed into the body and moves the fat quicker out of the intestines.

...because I was never told the correct way to sweat
The Neosauna is the sauna I promote the most for those that want a longer slow burn sauna who cannot handle a ceramic sauna. Not everyone can handle ceramic heaters behind their back as it gets very hot the way most people like to turn it up full blast on high. Neo saunas have carbon heaters with no cold spots. They have 2 high end front mounted ceramic heaters that keep the sauna hotter than only having carbon heaters.
They have heaters behind the calves and on the floor unlike most saunas. This usually takes about 25 minutes until I get my heart rate up to the point I want to get out after my core is heated 3 degrees. If I go in their sauna without the 2 ceramic heaters on then I can stay in about 45 minutes like I can in most ceramic saunas.
I do not promote Clearlight anymore so I had to find a replacement. I sold Vital saunas and another brand which I wish I never sold (won't mention their name to give them free advertising). The better ones have less than 2 milligauss of emf (NEO saunas is virtually emf free and doesn't even register on my emf meter). The emf of Neosaunas is the lowest I have found from any carbon sauna. I also like how they have halo therapy. It's like a salt cave.
The heaters in Neosaunas are way better than the brands I used to sell. They have a larger surface area so it produces lots of far infrared cool heat while the ceramic heaters do the heavy lifting of keeping the sauna hot. It goes up to 150 F degrees. The hottest ceramic sauna (Healthmate) gets to 170 degrees and I don't promote those for detox at all but great for weightless.
I do not promote Clearlight saunas anymore.
2 person Neosauna
I strongly urge people to get this sauna who cannot tolerate a ceramic sauna. This is a full spectrum carbon/ceramic sauna that heats my core up much quicker with the built in ceramic heaters. I feel the heat everywhere unlike those that don't have as many heaters. This has been my best selling combo sauna since I have been selling it. There I nothing cheap about this sauna. I put my Biomat on the seat to even make it more intense. I have had zero returns or complaints on Neosauna and their customer service is great.
