So my Lyme sista (who really does exist and when our photo goes up, you'll all realize she's not a figment of my "lymagination") and I connected through a status update I made on facebook about how I was looking at far infared saunas. I think we both knew it was inevitable minutes after her eerie comment, "Do we have the same thing?" that we would blog together about this trying time in our lives.
For the last couple days, sista has been sending me instant updates of her far infrared search--everything from Dr. Mercola's DIY out of cardboard box to the "bag lady" (AKA the Portable Infrared Hothouse) to mineral lamps. Meanwhile, I've been having a hard time getting over my obsession with the only outdoor unit on the market. The price seems reasonable (er, cheap). But then I stumbled upon some site telling me not to buy a far infrared sauna from China.
I just want a good sweat in a box. To be pain free. Lyme free. Spirochete free. Maybe a good old fashioned sweat lodge would do the trick?
