    Hi all,
    I recently discovered how wonderful the far infrared sauna is, but I can't have one in my apartment, and can't afford to go to the spa as often as I would like.
    Do you think the biomat is a good alternative?
    Or is an infrared heating pad better?
    I am hesitant to invest in this gear before I know which would best suit me. That reminds me, there are also infrared suits...! Kind of outer space looking, but I'm open to that as well... And there are the infrared bags, and something that looks like a tent.

    If you have an opinion on these products please share. I'm trying to gather research before I purchase.
    Basically, what I am looking for is something that can provide a benefit similar to the FIR sauna.
    And hopefully won't break the bank.

    I sincerely appreciate your responses <3

    @lef07003 I was reading something you'd written about the biomat. Please let me know any other info you have on that, or if you could please the model you have purchased, or if you'd like to send me that info privately, any info would help : )
    Thank you!!

    I think @Sushi this is something you might know about.

    I've had a Biomat for many years--it just keeps going! I got it because of space considerations but do like it very much. I got one that had been used as a demo in Health Fairs and thus was sold at a discount. They also let me try it for a month before buying it.

    I use it on the couch with thick towels under and over me and a down comforter on top to give the sauna effect. It is not going to cure me but does help with symptoms and detox, in my experience.

    Thanks for your recommendation : )))
    I should mention, the main issues I am looking to resolve with FIR and related products are detoxing of metals, pathogen and parasite killing and strengthening the immune system.
    The FIR sauna had an effect even on the first session, gave me some relief from IBS and stomach spasming, as well as a feeling that things are shifting to the way they should be.
    I can't wait to go back!!

    ITs wonderful, I go to someone who performs sessions on an FIR sauna with me but similar to a bio mat.. I wish I could afford one for my home but tad expensive for me.

    This site has some good info on it, and a link to the product that seems decently priced.. albeit out of my price range lol

    My current Chiropractors office is offering unlimited (their hours of operation only?) usage of a FIR sauna for $75/month. before that is was $1/minute!

    Thanks @Martial ! I was just looking at the better health guy site last night : )

    It is really a shame about the costs of these things, I am young, broke & on my own and I feel sometimes like everything pertaining to this illness has such a price tag. That is not how it should be.

    I will maybe contact the guy from that website and see if he can make any lower cost recommendations..

    @ggingues that is interesting you go to a chiro’s office for the FIR. I will look into that too; I have just been going to kind of shi shi spa centers. Maybe a chiro’s office would be willing to make me a better deal : )

    Thanks!!

    I haven't taken them up on the offer yet, want to try one month, when I know I will have a lot of free time,, to utiilize it as much as I can. I have been doing detox (CSM) for years, with chlorella, so not sure how much toxins I would have anyways, hopefully not much! I had my almagams removed years ago also. Had metals testing done via challenge test, did it again and mercury and another metal, were lower. And have done years of CSM since then, I think I still had my amalgams in though, when I did the 2nd round of testing w/challenge?

    Hi tiger lily

    I love my biomat. I use it at low temps just for relaxation and comfort. I am really anxious in the morning and find it so soothing. I'm sure it helps with detox but I have to say I never know what's what. My family loves it too. I'd be glad to give you more info if you'd like but it's one of the best investments I have made.
