Just this morning I was asked again, about the radiation output of the typical Far Infrared sauna. Sauna Cloud Far Infrared sauna’s still remain the safest out there, with the lowest radiation rating – period. This is one of the most frequently asked questions I encounter, in terms of the safety of Far Infrared sauna therapy. It is the radiation output, or EMF, from different sauna models. There has been much debate about whether or not EMF is harmful to your health. After doing research on the subject I have come to the conclusion that it is something to watch out for in general, as well as in your infrared sauna. Currently there is scientific proof that both adults and children are at risk for cancer when exposed to high EMF, electro magnetic fields, and there should be no doubt that you do not want to risk high EMF in the infrared sauna environment, either. Unfortunately, because infrared saunas are electrical devices, you can never get the EMF down to 0.0. However, there are now infrared saunas available that keep their EMF at the 0.2 – 0.3 mG range. The EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) has proposed a safety standard of 3 mG as anything below 3 mGs is currently deemed to be safe. Why expose your body to any additional radiation when there’s so much already out there?
There are so many sources of hidden radiation today. Using the official 1991 International Commission on Radiological Protection report, projected planet wide contamination will cause 175 million cancer deaths and another 350 million non-fatal cancers. The ramification of this will be an additional 235 million illnesses and 588 million children born with birth defects. They will also potentially suffer brain damage, mental disabilities, spina bifida and childhood cancers. Additional hidden sources of radiation are the fluoride compounds added to most municipal water supplies. Hydrofluosilicic acid, the source of most fluoride for water supplies, is a waste produced from smokestacks that contains radioactive particles and heavy metals along with fluoride. This waste becomes airborne as well, further polluting everything from the air we breathe to the water we drink, shower in and cook with. Not to mention medical and dental x-rays, medical waste that may contain radioactive materials, CAT and other scans, smoke alarms and even the mercury in your teeth, all add to hidden radiation in our environment today.
Far Infrared sauna therapy promotes health and healing along with rapid turnover of body cells. It provides a very low output of EMF and each sauna company should provide you with their third party test results proving this. The deeply penetrating Infrared heat kills damaged cells which are more heat-sensitive than normal cells. Eliminating the radiation-containing cells helps the body eliminate radioactive particles faster and prevents replication of these cells. Over a period of time Far Infrared sauna therapy can dramatically reduce the amount of mutated DNA and radioactive material in your body.Research and find a reputable Far Infrared Sauna company. Sauna Cloud Infrared Sauna guarantees, in writing, that their saunas are all below 3 mG at any point in the sauna or you receive your money back. Their sauna EMF levels are around 0.2 to 0.3 mG and have been third party tested by VitaTech Electromagnetics. Ask for the report – they’re happy to assist!
