I googled “infrared bad health” and all i could find were positive things about far infrared saunas. The only skeptical article i could find (saying not enough evidence at this point, etc., etc.) was from mayoclinic, but they are skeptical about everything.

And sorry, my question should have been “is far infrared heat good or bad for hairloss?”

I think it could only help, but I don’t think you’ll really find a definite answer to that question. I’ve seen claims that far IR helps with hair loss, but the only way you’ll know is to try it. The heat will obviously penetrate pretty deep into bodily tissue, which will be generally good for inflammation and circulation. It should also be good for heavy metal detox if that’s an issue for you.

Before you drop the cash on your own sauna, you might try to find an alternative health clinic that has a far IR sauna, then try it for a month or two and see if you notice any positive changes. I actually looked into this a while back, and found a couple of places that would charge something like $10 for a 30 minute session. Not exactly dirt cheap, but at least it would let you try it out before buying one.

like $10/30 minute session

Gentlewaves makes devices like that >1080 nanometers. But with 10usd a minute , a 20 minute session is (200 bucks!!) Sjees, just build your own sauna!!!!

$10 for a 30 minute session, not $10/min. Changed the wording in my original post to clear up the confusion.

I think you have to look at blood flow. Sounds like the more blood flow the better to the head while using the LLLT. Since Infrared Heat goes 2″ deep instead of heating just the surface of your skin we are talking big time increase in blood flow.

It wouldn’t grow hair on it’s own, but would massively help in that area.
I checked on the sauna email me for the brand… I don’t like to spam. I can get a number from him if you want….let me know.

Thanks for that post, NeverQuit. I really want a far infrared sauna now to sweat the gunk out of my pores. i notice that i’ll sweat out some kind of little white wax when i sweat from my temples and this usually happens when i sweat on a hot and sunny day. apparently, far infrared saunas mimic that kind of environment (hot and sunny day, without the light), so it sounds good to me. It’s good to know that i’ll also be sweating out fat-soluble toxins and, possibly, heavy metals too. another plus is that these saunas cost just as much as a really good laser helmet (i.e. they’re not THAT expensive).

Completely different. Tanning booths use Near infrared light which is part of the visible spectrum of light which is why you get sunburn if your in it too long.

Far Infrared Saunas use the farthest and safest spectrum of light which is so far, it’s no longer visible light but just heat. It’s why seeds grow which are 2 feet under the ground. Infrared Saunas have zero light but rather heating panels.

Thanks for the post apacheindian, but i’m looking for a sauna to sweat in, not a tanning bed to get a tan…

The two i’m looking at right now are these:

Both companies are located in Canada.

Man if I had 5 grand lying around I would get a sauna and a UV-B tanning bed. Would be a great combo for health right there.
