After getting data from Dr. K and Dr. C on the huge benefits of infrared detox.

A local friend with Lyme has a wood sided one built into her house and loves it.

Having one of my LL practitioners recommend it to me, and not having anything really working to improve my scene, I finally started it.

I got a portable broad-spectrum infra-red sauna that is like a tent and can fold up and be put into a flat box.

It has a remote control and hand/arm slits so one can sit up and read, etc., while in it. The head is out, so it is actually pretty comfortable.

My first week at this. I started with 30 minutes at 100 degrees and experienced greater mental clarity with the first session!

Also, my temperature went to 98.6 briefly for the first time in about years. (I got Lyme in 1998, but was not diagnosed until 2005)

Now, I'm doing them daily, and the improvement is still there, and gradually increasing. No herxing, which is JUST FINE with me!!

I've been doing the same for quite some time. Usually break a sweat within a half hour, then shower off warm and cool, then take some Takesumi activated charcoal to help with internal detoxing.
No herxing either!

After 6 months of initially sweating out on a borrowed biomat, I suddenly was not sensitive to chemicals, so this really works, in terms of releasing toxins!

I got the Therasage one, which is broad spectrum.

Dr. Mercola, in talking online about infrared saunas says that he uses a different brand. You could look that up on his website, which has an archive of his articles.

The Mercola article was in the last month or so. Mercola has some reservations regarding EMFs on other brands than the one he recommends.

He didn't mention Therasage one way or the other, but Therasage claims no EMF. I haven't tested mine for EMF--don't have the gear.

I'm till getting more mental clarity. I test my temp while in the sauna, and have gotten it up to 98.6.

My temp has been generally higher since I started using the sauna about 3-5 times a week.

Robin .. your chemical sensitivity got better with the biomat?

Sounds awesome!
