The plain truth about sauna

We have been chronically undernourished in what sunlight provides for us, since humans moved from the wild world of mother nature to living and working in boxes all day. 

We have also moved away from the hormetic benefits of uncomfortable temperatures that our ancestors encountered without effort.

You don’t need any devices to fill these key needs of the body.  Just go outside.  There’s plenty of sunlight and hormetic temperature experiences for the human mammal to live a robust, healthy life.


with modern living comes work schedules, kids, technology, and more that prevent many people from being able to just go outside.

So we adapt.

We get into a sauna that provides some of the most important, healing spectrums of sunlight and the anti-fragile powers of heat stress.

There are literally thousands of scientific studies to show the benefits of both heat stress and light exposure.

Here is a partial list of what is physiologically built into your mammalian meat-suit. These effects happen whether you want them to or not!!!!

Benefits of Light

  • Stimulates ATP production in mitochondria (more energy!)
  • Speeds recovery from activity or injury/illness
  • Healthier Skin
  • Improves strength and endurance
  • Faster weight loss
  • Improves metabolism and hormonal health
  • Improves mood and cognitive function

Benefits of Heat

  • Non-human invaders don’t tolerate the heat well
  • ​Weak human cells die faster (induces autophagy)
  • ​Sweat is a powerful detox mechanism for heavy metals
  • ​Burns calories and assists with weight loss
  • ​Increases mood due to endorphins and endogenous cannabinoids
  • ​Decreases inflammation through activation of the heat shock protein network
  • ​Increases mitochondrial biogenesis
  • ​Increases vascular compliance
  • ​Vasodilation provides better nutrient transport
  • ​Helps you utilize sugar more effectively
  • ​Improves blood pressure
  •  Improves mitochondrial function
  • ​Improves metabolism and hormonal health
  • ​Reduces delayed onset muscle soreness

We know these things are going to happen, it’s a given. But how does that look in a really long-term study with overall disease reduction.

Well, Dr. Laukkanen from Finland showed us how in 2015 when he published his 20 year long sauna study in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA).

Dr. Laukkanen enrolled over 2,000 males, age 46-71, and followed them for 20 years.

He found those who had 3 sauna sessions weekly, versus those who did not sauna, experienced a 24% reduction in all-cause mortality and a 40% reduction in Alzheimers disease.

And those who had 4-7 sessions weekly experienced a 40% reduction in all cause mortality and a 65% reduction in Alzheimers disease compared to those who did not sauna.


Those are some pretty compelling reasons to get hot daily, right!  Add this to the thousands of studies on light therapy and there is NO REASON you shouldn’t add this to your weekly calendar today!!

After nearly a decade of personal use, research, reading, trial and error, and talking with manufacturers around the world, I’ve found the most ideal sauna to provide BOTH the light and the heat needed to produce maximum benefit for little human meat-suits like you and me.
