  9. Cold Intolerance:  Proven 95-99% effective, Solocarbon heaters increase core body temperature to alleviate lower body temperatures.
  10. Sound Sensitivity:  Sunlighten saunas provide a soothing atmosphere for those with hyperacusis to find relief. A.R.T. balances brainwaves, bringing the body to a deeper state of relaxation.
  11. Improved Circulation:  Increases blood flow to reduce the body’s hold on toxic metals and helps get nutrients where they need to go. Also increases body temperature to keep hands and feet warm.
  12. Weight Loss:  A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories!

Sunlighten’s infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat. Check out the results with a heart rate monitor and you will be amazed.

Corydalis yanhusuo (yan hu suo)

According to an article published January 4, 2014 in the University Herald (a publication that focuses on what’s happening at higher education institutions around the world), animal studies are confirming that Dehydrocorybulbine (DHCB), a compound derived from the roots of the traditional Chinese herb Yan Hu Suo is an effective treatment for pain.

Eventually, after many more trials, pharmaceutical companies may be able to use this extract  to provide something that is not narcotic and doesn’t lose efficiency like opiates to treat acute, inflammatory and neuropathic pain.  Eventually.

Meanwhile, you could buy the herb in bulk, make a tea, and use it as it’s been used traditionally for a few thousand years.
