Cutler Integrative Medicine, led by naturopathic physician, Dr. Doug Cutler, is pleased to announce their launch of the Sunlighten Infrared Dome. As the first practice to carry the "dome" in the state, the demand for this service is turning out to be extremely high.

“Patients are looking for effective ways to supplement lifestyle and dietary changes to detoxify, lose weight, and improve their overall health," says Cutler. “Sunlighten is an adjunctive therapy that gets results, and helps patients feel better quickly.”

"Solocarbon® is the most effective far infrared technology on the market to date," explains Cutler, "and proprietary to Sunlighten. Solocarbon® is 95% effective and the only heater on the market clinically shown to raise core temperature, lower blood pressure and aid in weight loss."

"Sunlighten’s patented Solocarbon® Full Spectrum is unique in its ability provide a blend of near, mid and far infrared at optimal wavelengths based on 56 clinical studies," adds Cutler. "With high power infrared proven 99% effective and advanced LED technology delivering true near infrared heat, it can evolve with changing health needs over time."

What is Infrared Technology?
Infrared light and heat are the invisible part of the sun’s spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for the Sunlighten Infrared Dome Therapy.

Sunlighten’s Solocarbon® infrared technology is therapeutic because it is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It works to raise the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where the majority of toxins reside.

Sunlighten saunas use infrared heat instead of hot rocks or steam used in traditional saunas. Traditional saunas heat the air at extremely high temperatures which can make the experience unbearably hot and difficult to breathe. Because infrared heats the body directly instead of simply heating the air, infrared saunas are seven times more effective for detoxification.

What are the benefits of Solocarbon® Infrared Dome?
Detoxification - A Sunlighten sauna generates a sweat 7x more detoxifying than a traditional sauna. Sunlighten helps you sweat out 20% toxins, verses a traditional sauna in which you only sweat out 3% toxins.

Weight Loss - As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. 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.

Improves Circulation - Heating of muscles with infrared produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. Body temperature elevation also produces an increase in blood flow. Infrared heat assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrates, edema and exudates.

The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema which can help end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed healing.

Heart Health - The Solocarbon® heaters have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Solocarbon® heaters were used in a clinical study with the University of Missouri Kansas City were shown to lower blood pressure from a 30 minute sauna session three times a week. Repeated infrared treatment improves impaired blood vessel functions in patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This suggests a preventative role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.

Pain Relief - Researchers studying HRP (Heat Responsive Pain) have observed remarkable therapeutic benefits by using continuous low level heat therapy for treating lower back and upper body pain, all conditions that fall under the HRP classification.

Anti-Aging - Open wounds heal quicker with reduced scarring. Infrared heat therapy helps acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and any skin lesions or cuts. It also reduces wrinkles, makes skin look radiant, firms and improves skin tone and elasticity. Regular use may also help reduce cellulite trapped beneath the skin, lessen the appearance of scars, and help burns heal significantly.

Cell Health/Immunity - Stay healthy with the natural preventative properties of Sunlighten’s exclusive LED near infrared heating technology, which aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense.

Wound Healing - The advanced LED near infrared technology has the unique ability to heal wounds faster and minimize scarring.

How Safe is Infrared?
Infrared heat is completely safe and healthy for all living things. You can be exposed to infrared light for hours without the risk of burning. Infrared is a naturally occurring output of the sun, but does not contain the harmful UV rays associated with unprotected sunlight.

In fact, infrared heat is so safe, it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.

The proprietary heater design virtually eliminates EMF (an average of less than 3 milligauss).

How often should I do the Sunlighten Infrared Dome?
Some people may do weekly sessions, while others may do 3-5x a week for more intense therapy. Some people may also choose Sunlighten to compliment other programs such as monthly massages, body makeover treatments, colon hydrotherapy and IV nutrient therapy.
