What is the best type of wood to get when buying a sauna?

Does the hot air bother you?

Also, how often do you use it per week?

Has it helped or is there something better that has helped you to detox?

Absolutely the best $200 bucks I ever spent. I only have a portable one but im tthinking I like it better because sometimes I cant handle the heat, feels like i cant breath in there so i stick my head out but can still sweat.

jlcd1, can you link us to the unit that you bought?


I just soak in hot water & then I drain the tub and wait out the sweating & the effects of the heat. As the disease progressed, I find that the heat is harder to take, but not impossible.


The heat causes heart to inc, head pressure, dizziness & unwell feeling, which gradually mitigates & over time I am left feeling better and less symptomatic than when I started.


I think it forces the spirochetes to go into cyst & bleb mode.

I assume you're talking about FIR saunas? There are wood ones and then there are fold-up portable ones. I have the latter and it does fine for me. I store it in my closet.

Lymedin2010 "I think it forces the spirochetes to go into cyst & bleb mode. "

I'm new here so this probably sounds like a dumb

question: why would one want to sauna if it causes

the spirochetes to become more resistant?

The act of movement & transformation makes them more susceptible to antibiotics. Movement into the blood plasma can allow the white blood cells to pick them up & hopefully degrade & kill them.


I notice there are more spirochete cysts in the WBC's when I take hot baths. What happens to the cysts after they are in is anyone's guess, but hopefully at least some are eliminated.


A few of the people who are in remission have in common that they all did sauna or hot baths. My blood microscopy reveals that there are more cysts in WBC's after this & maybe there is a connection?

Hi Catgirl,

I believe mine is made of hemlock.

It is also important to find one not made with glues.

Also, with EMF, when you turn it on, the heaters are quite large.

I would suggest warming it up first, waiting for the heaters to turn off, then stepping in when you first start. Just to be sure it doesn't bother you like Wifi.

Do you have one in your town you could try first?

I love mine. If I ever had to move to a smaller place, I would get rid of the dining table, the china cabinet and my couch just to keep the sauna.

Haha.
