Sauna Therapy for Detoxification & Healing

I came across Dr. Lawrence Wilson's book through an article titled: "Light Saunas and Tesla" in the ExtraOrdinary Technology magazine some time back and was very impressed with his no nonsense approach to Sauna therapy. The article highlighted a case history where, a strict dietary regiment, and the light Sauna stopped the progression of bone cancer!

One sensed that Dr. Wilson's primary goal above all was to first help us improve our health. I, could not help but, admire his efforts to self empower his patients and others with one of the most profound tools. His unique approach and ability to cut through the mumbo jumbo on Sauna therapy and provide an highly effective, if not the most effective, Sauna design and it's associated methodology readily into everyone's hand is exactly the kind of data that is central to the theme of my Share the Wealth site.

The beauty of the Sauna is that it off loads the liver and the kidneys from their endless duty of detoxification, this then allows them to rest and rebuild. This is particularly important if the kidneys and the liver are not working optimally. In addition there are certain substances, discussed in the book, that are excreted better in sweat. Light Sauna is the only way to repair ionizing radiation damage (such as X-Rays and nuclear etc.)

"To be most effective the sauna needs to use red infrared heat lamps, not conventional electric heaters or the newer zirconium ceramic elements that produce mainly far-infrared energy. The wide spectrum of the red infrared heat lamps includes the entire infrared spectrum, not just far infrared, and light frequencies of red, orange and yellow. It also includes ultrasound and radio frequencies, both short and long wave. It also includes some audible sound frequencies. Every one of these components has healing properties which" are explained in the book.

The problem with Sauna therapy has been the expense and the associated space required for one. Dr. Wilson, multifaceted approach, has not only resolved this but may have provided one of the most effective design to boot.

Infrared electric light sauna therapy is one of the least costly, safest and most powerful ways to eliminate toxic metals, toxic chemicals and chronic infections. The benefits include:

* Skin rejuvenation
* Exercise benefits
* Decongesting the internal organs
* Fever therapy (hyperthermia) for infections.
* Tumors, radiation poisoning and mutated cells

While I am not treating myself for any particular ailment, my goal is to develop a lifelong method for detoxifying. Safe and clean - good nutrition (the building blocks), air, and water are rapidly disappearing hence detoxification is essential for all, no matter how healthy we maybe or think we are.... and Dr. Wilson's plans, for a light Sauna that anyone can build at home so cost effectively, fit the bill exactly!

All components are off the shelf, low cost, and easily available. I was able to build my own for $150 Canadian, strangely it took me a day and a half to round up the all the components and only an afternoon to construct it!

Dr. Wilson is also an expert hair analyst. Hence, he first tested the efficacy the Sauna on himself thorough the use of hair analysis, the striking results of which are in the book, and subsequently used it on his patients. It was this work that inspired him to recommend sauna therapy for all clients.

His site contains the basics including the plans. The book is far more comprehensive and contains the following chapters

1. Introduction to Saunas
2. Physiology of Saunas
3. Heat Shock Proteins
4. Sauna Protocol
5. Detoxification
6. Other Aspects Of Sauna Therapy

13. Light Sauna Considerations
14. Personal Experience With An Electric Light Sauna
15. Sauna Research
16. Review and Conclusion
Appendix A. Saunas and Hair Mineral Analysis
Appendix B. Light Sauna Plans
Appendix C. Basic Enclosure Plans
Appendix D. Notes For Practitioners

Readers' Comments

Good Morning Chris;
I read your news letter daily but have never commented before. Today you are talking about The person "Dr. Wilson" who I feel was the catalyst to my personnal health's improvement.
As a MCSer (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) of 12 years it seems to take many factors of life style change to improve one's health; thus eventually making daily living easier. I still stay home as I do enjoy feeling good. My chemical injury has me reacting to most man made chmicals - but finally now at home I can feel close to normal .
I do feel the catalyst to this level of enjoyment was my use of an infra red sauna.
A number of years ago I came across an article of Dr.Wilson's on the net and the rudimentory descriptions for building a small infra red sauna. It made so much sense to me I passed the article on to my hubby to read. Utilizing poplar cut from our property my wonderful husband Tom made me a wonderful compact infra red sauna for a very low cost from Dr. Wilson's description.
I was one of the folks who never sweated freely - and after a number of years my ability to sweat has improved immensely.. in fact I still revel in the idea I sweat so much; so quickly when warm.
This process was something my body seldom did; unless it was rediculously hot and humid. I do so enjoy having this easily used piece of equipment at my beck and call. I attribute my new level of positive health to this simple piece of equipment and recommend the idea and process highly to anyone who contemplates building one.

is there anywhere to go to get sauna therapy training? I have a far infrared heat sauna and friends are wanting to use it for specific health concerns. I am concerned but I can't find anyone with any answers as that this therapy is great but just not well documented.
