From the time we all started using cell phones, EMF has been a controversial topic as to the biological effects of EMF on the body. It is easy to understand the confusion and the controversy as there are two types of EMF. Ionizing and Non-Ionizing.
Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) make up our universe. Everything in the universe is bound by a positive and negative charge. Bandwidths of these energy waves either have the ability to ionize DNA or not. Non-ionizing EMF is safe as it does not have the capacity to change DNA.
EMF is everywhere around us. The electrical appliances we use, our computers, the wireless modems we find so convenient for accessing the Internet, our cordless phones, the clock radios beside our beds, our hair dryers, cell phones, and even the wiring throughout the walls of our homes are constantly producing EMFs at much higher levels than what you will find in an infrared sauna.
We know that ELFs or extremely low EMF only found near high-voltage power lines are ionizing and do have the ability to cause changes in DNA. It is not uncommon to find tracks of people in these areas exhibiting high emf exposure symptoms from depression to cancer. A sunburn is another example of an ionizing EMF radiation burn that we know can cause DNA changes. ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) EMF is not found in an infrared sauna.
The EMF in an infrared sauna is Non-Ionizing and does not have the ability to change DNA.
Extensive research over the past 20 years has concluded that there is no strong evidence supporting non-ionizing EMF exposures pose a health risk. Although the current scientific evidence provides no definitive answers regarding EMF, there is enough uncertainty that some people want to reduce their exposure to all EMFs.
WHY ARE LOW EMF AND LOW ELF INFRARED SAUNAS IMPORTANT?
As the largest infrared sauna manufacturer and importer of infrared saunas, your health and safety are our number one priority. All Celebration Saunas are constructed with the newest Biophoton Nano-carbon Infrared Sauna technology and to make our saunas safe we reduce EMF levels through the use of proper gauge wiring with heavy-duty insulation, EMF shielding, and steel enclosed electrical components. At Celebration Saunas, we use an opposing EMF layer to the backside of the heater to negate EMF coming off the front. Our home saunas emit 10mG at the heater and 5mG at the bench. Our commercial hospital-grade saunas emit 1.6mG at the heater and 0.3mG at the bench.
Approximately 3% of the population are EMF sensitive and can experience Memory Loss, Depression, Loss of Energy, Irritability, Inability To Concentrate, Weakened Immune System, Chronic Fatigue, Headaches. If this is you, it would be important to opt for a commercial/ medical grade sauna that has ultra-low or near-zero EMF heaters.
