In this episode of The Sauna Show, we have Dr. Joy Hussain making her second appearance on the podcast to talk about her latest research paper: The study of whole-body thermal therapy in health and wellness. An extremely exciting time for sauna bathers around the world, particularly for women, as Dr. Hussain explains how she trailed 10 women to take part in this experiment to determine the effects infrared sauna bathing had on the female patients from both a biological and physiological stand-point. Dr. Hussain describes the control (meditative state) and variables' (infrared sauna bathing using a Clearlight infrared sauna and exercise using a bicycle) differentiators, similarities, and key findings. Fascinating in itself, the findings were found to support the notion that Clearlight infrared saunas are beneficial for detoxification, as it was the cause for the 10 women to excrete the highest levels of pesticides (organophosphates) in their sweat when compared to the sweat found from the other two states of being. An eye-opening medical paper and brilliant episode that takes the first look into this pioneering sauna study.

What is red light therapy and how does it work? Most people think of light as something that only allows for visibility of their direct environment. (Sun)light, for instance, allows you to see what’s going on around you. And at nighttime, the absence of light makes your environment invisible. Without going into too much detail, the energy-producing processes in your cells are also affected by light in your environment. That basic process of light absorption by photoreceptors brings many fundamental health benefits. This red and infrared light therapy is also frequently described with other names, such as “Low Level Laser Therapy (short: LLLT)”, “LED light therapy”, “photobiomodulation”, and “red light therapy”. In this episode of The Sauna Show both Sebastian and Johannes talk about the fundamentals of understanding Red Light Therapy, how it works, and the options you have out in the market today.

We talk to Dr. Marc Cohen, a medical doctor with over 30 years of experience and a university professor, who has written over 100 peer-reviewed scientific papers, multiple books, and technical texts, on wellness and natural medicine. This episode teaches his techniques on how to enhance the sauna experience, how to prolong the time within a sauna or ice bath to be "comfortably uncomfortable", and this basic sauna bathing framework to maximise the therapeutic benefits of a sauna. A true pioneer in holistic wellness, Dr. Cohen has paved the way for scientific research to be conducted on both hot & cold sauna bathing, and in this episode, shares his insights from that research. With an ethos of "wellness being more infectious than illness", Dr. Cohen resonates with a passion and a mission to educate the world on "why feeling good is good for you". Further topics in this episode include detoxification with sauna bathing, toxins from water sources, a look at peer-reviewed research papers and findings, and this notion of 'if you're not using a filter, you are the filter.

Hormone imbalance can be attributed to multiple chronic health problems, and the effects of hormonal imbalance on the human body can be devastating. What's worse is, not only are hormones heavily misunderstood and overlooked but that the symptoms of hormone imbalance can be so gradual that the majority of the population living with hormonal imbalance go about their daily lives unaware of this issue. According to studies, more than 80% of women are affected by hormone imbalance, and also attributes to 40% of infertile couples. Women who commonly suffer from hormonal imbalance but are not aware may see symptoms of infertility, heavy/painful menstruation, blood sugar issues, hair loss, and weight gain, plus much more. For men over the age of 20, growth hormone declines roughly by 14% each year, affecting sleep, muscle development, low libido, and more. In this episode of The Sauna Show we sit down with Shaun and Sam, founders and creators of Be Spunki & Be Genki, a natural hormonal balancing supplement sourced from TGA approved, trialed and tested formulas of tonic herbs. With such a high level of knowledge of the bodies production of hormones and how they affect the human body, both Sam and Shaun give excellent recounts of their own experiences, what science has shown, their journey with Be Spunki and Be Genki and how you can ensure your hormone health is operating at its optimal performance.

In this episode of The Sauna Show, we sit down with Robert Bruce, the Co-founder of Enneagram Academy. Robert guides us through the 9 personality types of the Enneagram, an ancient and powerful personality-typing philosophy that has been enrooted in human history and tradition for millennia. Robert discusses the details of each 9 different personality patterns - believed to be the basis for our characteristics, the purpose of the Enneagram, and its history with our cultures both past and present. The Enneagram itself has a "primary goal and purpose to enhance self-knowledge; its ancillary benefit is that it allows us to understand the behavior of others, and with that understanding, to be more accepting and compassionate", according to the Enneagram Academy. A fascinating episode looking at the modern Enneagram as a condensation of ancient cultural wisdom, commonsense philosophy, and psychology, providing extraordinary insight into human behavior.

Jost Sauer is a Dr of Chinese Medicine and has worked with 10’s of thousands of people. He is known as the lifestyle medicine man and has a daily 5-hour-practice (3.5 hrs morning, 1.5 at night), which he has only missed once, in over 30 years.  Jost has discovered that if lifestyle is the problem, a different lifestyle is the solution. So he developed a therapeutic lifestyle, based on the ancient Chinese 24-hour chi cycle. This cycle repeats daily and is divided into two-hour brackets. His chi cycle lifestyle, taps into the intelligence of each of these 2 hours, to enable us to build chi, or energy, and create vitality, longevity, health and happiness. He is deeply committed to living by the Chi cycle. Jost has written seven books, and his latest book ‘Clock on to Health’ covers how to use your body clock to naturally boost your health and self-heal. I really appreciate teachers and practitioners like Jost, as the live 100% of what he preaches. Jost is 61 years by the time this was recorded and has phenomenal health, he is a walking example of what following the chi cycle can do. In fact, he is ripped, and amidst that, he does his martial arts workouts are similar to what a 30-year-old athlete would do. Jost believes that if you follow your chi cycle it becomes clear to us when to get up, when to work, when and how to eat, sleep, pray, and love - everything you do can be 10x as beneficial towards your health and happiness. In this podcast, Jost and I covered the first part of the day.  He explains how we can flow with our chi cycle to optimise our health and heal disease and what an ideal morning practice could look like according to Chinese medicine. Something to point out is that he distinguishes between physical and energetic organs. For example with our large intestine hours at 5am-7am, which is when we digest and eliminate  the previous day’s meal but also last days events and emotions. This understanding basically ensures that we look after body and spirit at the same time and treat them simultaneous not in isolation. His studies also point clearly to the fact that we are following ancient ideas but the practice has evolved and improved since then. I sometimes like to romanticise the thinking that old school ancient practice was the real deal, but Jost has found that ancient teachers have always pointed to holding on to the ideas behind a school of thoughts but to adapt and evolve as time goes on. So upgrades happen to ancient practices too, nice. I hope you enjoy! Please dont forget to review the podcast and let us know who you would like us to interview next. Until next time, have the best day ever!
