Episode 73: Sunlighten Sauna - Infrared As A Foundation Of Health

On this week’s episode of the Girlfriend Doctor Show, I had a very special conversation with infrared light specialist, Connie Zack. Connie is the co-owner (along with her husband) of Sunlighten, the manufacturer of the first saunas to offer near, mid, and far infrared technology. Her background is in executive marketing for Procter & Gamble’s pharmaceutical division, so it was very interesting to hear how she shifted from that to selling saunas.

In this talk, Connie discusses what events lead to her becoming interested in infrared therapy and saunas, the many benefits that come from saunas and infrared light, how sweat can detect more toxins than blood or urine, and much more. Her products are on sale right now, and viewers of this show can receive up to $600 off her products!

The infrared light that beams from the sun is so very important but not many can have the time to go outside when there’s light to absorb that radiant light, so these types of products are essential to that crowd. It’s great for our skin, our body, digestion, and for a healthy state of mind. Connie is truly an expert on this stuff so I highly recommend you tune in to find out how these products can serve you and your family.
