I have been an advocate for many years, talking up the many health benefits of Far Infrared sauna therapy. I am continually asked about two points of interest; who has the best Far Infrared sauna heaters and who confidently guarantees the best warranty available, within the industry. This allows me to revisit the subject and share my findings again.
Many years ago while researching then purchasing my new Far Infrared sauna I became aware that many less expensive units produced a higher amount of EMF. What is EMF? Simply, EMF stands for Electromagnetic Field. EMF is one of the four basic forces of nature. All matter produces EMF; living or non-living. My concern was finding a Far Infrared sauna that produced the least amount of EMF. Even though mainstream scientific evidence suggests that low power, low frequency electromagnetic radiation associated with household currents, like a Far Infrared sauna, does not seem to exhibit either a short or long term health hazard. It was a legitimate concern of mine.
Far Infrared saunas heat the body not the space surrounding it. This is done from emissions of infrared heat in waves, like the heat from the sun, where it penetrates into the body’s tissues, muscles and organs. Infrared waves are generally safe. Hospitals use this same technology on newborns in the delivery room to warm the infants. However, what about any health risks caused by excessive EMF? There are two national research organizations who have concluded zero evidence that low EMF exposure poses any health risk. These organizations are the National Research Council and the NIH.
EMF surrounds us – outside, in our homes and in our work environments. High voltage power lines being the worst offender, lower EMF levels are found in general household items, as well; computers, modems, phones, clocks, toasters, hair dryers, microwaves. That stated I really wanted to keep any new electrical item as low on the EMF scale as possible. EMF levels are measured in units called milligauss, or mG. By far the combination True Wave II Heaters, combining both ceramic and carbon, found at Sauna Cloud Infrared Saunas, produce the lowest EMF mG rating. This is third party tested and proven technology. The mG levels in their infrared saunas are less that 2 mG well below the minimum safety threshold.
Electromagnetic fields are the result of any electronic device with active circuits running through it. 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 choice. Do your homework, look at the testing results and really watch for EMF readings on any Far Infrared sauna you are interested in purchasing.
When researching warranty’s I found Sauna Cloud Infrared Saunas also have the best lifetime warranty, hands-down. Every single part of your sauna is covered for the lifetime that you own it. Many other companies claim lifetime warranty’s however what they fail to tell you is they assume the ‘lifetime’ of the sauna is seven years. It’s all in the fine print. This means at year eight if something breaks it could become very expensive for you to fix. Sauna Cloud Infrared Sauna’s warranty has no such limit. It is simply under warranty for the lifetime you own it. This really does include everything down to the light bulbs! There are no hidden fees or ‘limited’ verbiage needed. If you need your sauna repaired, they ship the parts to you free of charge and pay for an electrician or handyman to come fix it for you.
These are always two great subjects to revisit. They are not possibly as exciting as other topics but are truly two of the most important. Remember, do your own research, read all the fine print and then you’ll be able to make the most intelligent choice that will meet your needs and allow for many years ahead filled with good health and continued Far Infrared sauna use!
