Why is buying an infrared sauna so difficult?

I never knew it would be such a tedious task to buy an infrared sauna, but it really is. There are so many competitors to choose from and each of them claim that there technology is the best. So how do you choose? Well, you need to figure out why you are purchasing one and why. Is it because you just want a sauna in yo ur home for to impress your friends? Or do you really want it to utilize all the great benefits?

If you really want it for all the benefits, then you have to do a lot of research to make sure you are making the right choice. Since infrafed saunas come in a large variety shapes and sizes - from a dome to a cabin - and a variety of prices, this is very difficult to do. at first, I was leaning torwards one of the cheaper ones, because I really didnt realize the quality was that much different - that was a big mistake.  I had the chance to go and look at a showroom of one of the more expensive ones, and I quickly learned there was a big difference.

The difference is - QUALITY! The infrared sauna cabin was everything that I was promised.  It looked like it was high quality piece of furniture, that was definitly not built on an assemby line in China. It was true craftmanship.

Now, for the real deal sealer. This was the technology of the infrared sauna heaters. this is the most important feature to look at when choosing an infrared sauna heater. The technology at Clearlight Infrared Sauna is definitly the best.  They use both ceramic and carbon elements in their heating technology, which outshines any of the competition. These are the best. Also, their heaters have the lowest EMF by far, when compared to any of the top compeitiors. They have virtually none.  

After searching for over a year, I have to say that I am more than pleased with my purchase. It is truly the best infrared sauna on the market.

Wheat Allergy Symptoms

What is a Wheat Allergy?

Wheat allergy is a type of food allergy, that is caused by an abnormal immune system reaction to one or more proteins that are found in wheat. In order to develop a wheat allergy, you need to eat wheat at least once. This allows the immune system to be exposed to the protein. After the body is exposed, the immune system then learns to identify these proteins, and when these proteins are introduced in the body again, the body attacks them with histamines triggering an allergic reaction. Additionally, wheat allergies are one of the eight most common food allergies, and is more common in children. It affects about six percent of children under the age of three and is much less common in adults. Wheat allergies are often confused with Celiac Disease, but they are not the same thing.
