What is MTHFR?
MTHFR (short for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase), is a defective, or mutated gene that causes a wide range of health conditions and symptoms. Sadly, many with MTHFR are often misdiagnosed. We have heard reports from Sunlighten customers that they are typically diagnosed after years of suffering from mysterious health calamities that often came without explanation. Among other things, MTHFR

High blood pressure increases your risk of getting heart disease, kidney disease or serious stroke. Only Sunlighten infrared saunas are backed by clinical research that shows a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
In a 2005 clinical study by the University of Missouri Kansas City, Sunlighten’s Solocarbon heaters were shown to lower blood pressure through a program of 30 minute infrared sauna session 3 times per week. The study concluded that Sunlighten infrared sauna therapy dilated blood vessels and reduced the volume of their inner lining, thus increasing circulation to promote healthy blood pressure.
Additional studies have regularly shown the positive impact that regular More >

In honor of women’s health this month, we want to share some important information on heart disease, which is now widely recognized in the medical field as the number one killer of both men and women in the United States each year. Frightening enough, it’s also known as the “secret killer” among women: just as many women as men in the U.S. now die from heart disease.
At Sunlighten Saunas, we get a number of great questions from our customers about infrared heat. Today, we would like to share some of our extensive research about infrared heat, and the differences between Near, Mid and Far Infrared.
What Is Infrared?
To begin with, infrared heat is the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum, which has the ability to gently and comfortably penetrate human tissue to produce a host of health benefits. Naturally occurring from the sun, it is the basis for all Sunlighten™ saunas.
