“The last three posts have discussed the various goals of Therasage. After so much theory, we thought it would be a good idea to provide an example of how awareness, knowledge, variable definition, and tool selection all come together in practice for a given individual. Let’s call him ‘John.’
John is Aware
John has developed an infection, manifested by symptoms of the common cold and, possibly, the flu: a persistent headache, upper respiratory congestion, and achy muscles. John is aware of how he feels and can accurately describe his symptoms.
John’s Got Knowledge
John read our blogpost about hyperthermia, so he’s got some basic knowledge of how it works therapeutically and what it can do for him. He also knows that pathogens dislike heat, and that deliberate provocation of a mild temperature elevation (i.e., low fever) is an effective way of killing the microbes that are causing his malaise. John confers with his general practitioner, who is knowledgable regarding infrared therapy. He confirms John’s self-diagnosis and intended tool selection/treatment protocol. This is the acquisition of knowledge, by means of both study and consultation.
John’s Variables Get Defined
John calls Therasage and speaks with Robby, reminding him that he purchased a Therasage portable sauna last year, which he uses from time to time. (Bravo, John!) After reviewing with John the general safety principles of responsible sauna use (i.e., start gradually regarding both temperature and time length, drink plenty of water both before and after, and finish with a warm, soapy shower), Robby explains to John that the optimal time of day to sit in the sauna is in the morning, so the infrared heat can fire up John’s mitochondria. However, his work schedule doesn’t allow for this, and he’s not ill enough to take sick leave. This is variable definition.
John’s Tools Get Selected
So, Robby explains to John that some daily sauna, whenever possible, is better than none at all. He encourages him to spend from 20 to 30 minutes in the sauna in the evening, right after work, again reminding him to judge for himself his own heat threshold and to be mindful of how he feels. Also, using the sauna a few hours before going to bed will give John’s body time to cool back down so his sleep won’t be disturbed. This is proper tool selection and application, tailored to the particular needs of the individual person.”
There’s no doubt about it: technology can be a great tool. But, it can also be something of a two-edged sword, cutting both ways. Take cellular phones, for example. They have changed the way we communicate and effectively made our world a smaller and more connected place (on some levels, at least). However, the wireless networks upon which those phones depend can be dangerous for life, human and otherwise.
With the advent of the 5G network, that danger has reached a frightening level. Essentially, such a network is so strong that it not only reduces service outages and “no coverage zones” (good) but also penetrates living bodies instead of bouncing off them (bad).

In just two weeks, the Society of Progressive Medical Education (SOPMed) is hosting its annual conference at the beautiful Cheyenne Mountain Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The main conference runs June 22nd and 23rd, preceded by pre-conference courses on the 20th and 21st.
The Therasage team will be there, and Robby will be holding a breakout session on infrared therapy.
As Tom Lowe, the SOPMed President, says, “You’re going to find things here that will change your life . . . change other people’s lives. That’s why we do this.”
