In case you don`t remember me I am the person who sent you an e-mail on January 4th regarding RSD. In September I broke my wrist and that followed with two surgeries, as a result I acquired RSD.
I read your article on line regarding the nervous system and was quite impressed so I sent you an e-mail asking advice. I believe at the time I told you that I was in so much pain and so depressed that I was at a loss for what to do.
Almost immediately I received an e-mail from you suggesting the red infrared lamp therapy. I am telling you that you were my angel that day! I followed you suggestion and today I am feeling as good if not better than before the accident.
In the beginning I used the lamp around 4 or 5 times a day for 7 or 8 minutes but as I began to get relief I cut down on the times per day but not the minutes. I think it took about a week before I really realized it was beginning to work.
Chronic Sinus Infection Reversed
Dear Dr. Wilson,
I have suffered from inflamed sinuses for about 40 years. They inhibit my ability to breathe. Also, the sinuses drip day and night and this condition nearly killed my sense of smell. My face was also permanently swollen in the area of the sinuses.
I built an infrared lamp sauna three months ago and have been using it once daily for about 35 minutes ever since.
My body seems to be changing since I have started using the sauna, and I have had several instances where I see auras or halos in my eyes, after a session has ended, triggered by bright light.
I had a major healing crisis that lasted for about 48 hours about one month ago. My sinuses, cheeks, face and gums swelled up and drained profusely. When the crisis cleared, I was able to breath and smell things normally for the first time in memory!
I had a slight reversal about ten days later, but I am still better than before I started using the sauna. My face is no longer swollen and the sinuses do not drip any more at night. My sense of smell is only partially there. You have recommended longer sauna sessions of 45 minutes, and/or having two sauna sessions daily. I will let you know how this affects the sinuses.

Thank you for the time spent on the phone with me. Because of you and sauna therapy, my wife Joyce, who had been having severe joint pain, is much more comfortable.
Before using lamp sauna as a treatment her joint pain was crippling, especially at night and this also affected her sleep. We tried doctors but nothing helped.
It has been 2 months and with consistent sauna sessions and correct diet I see her condition only getting better. She still gets pains but not as frequent and not as severe.

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) reversed in an 82-year-old.
Received March 9, 2007
I am 82 years old and until recently had COPD to where my oxygen reading on the finger was 84, my lungs were very raspy and I would wheeze when walking. I had been on oxygen for three years with no apparent benefit from the oxygen. I used a CPAP with oxygen at night and a nebulizer four times a day. There was no benefit that could I see.
A year ago I bought an infrared lamp sauna from Dr. Wilson. I used it for a time last summer without its cover to condense the heat. It provided some help.
Then two and a half months ago I covered the frame and started using the sauna three times a day. I heat the sauna to 120 degrees and I stay inside for 30 to 45 minutes.
After a week of doing this, I began to sweat, first on my back and then the head, neck, underarms, and now my upper torso also sweats a lot. I drink 3 quarts of water daily with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt per day (table salt will kill you).
I went to the doctor today. My lungs were normal with no wheezing. The oximiter on the finger read 96, although I had been off oxygen for 6 hours.
I still use need the CPAP and oxygen at night, and use a nebulizer several times a day. I am continuing to use the sauna and there is no question this sauna has decreased my COPD a lot.

My father started his 15 minute sauna on June 1, 2007, only two months ago. He has dropped 21 pounds of edema since then, (yes very short) and along with his Rife therapy, he is feeling amazing.
Thanks again, he is 87.
Chronic Fatigue Reversed
July 6, 2007
I have been doing the sauna therapy protocol daily for 12 weeks now (6 weeks with the near infrared lamps installed), and have seen amazing results in such a short period of time. I am 42 years old, and developed chronic fatigue syndrome almost 30 years ago after several illnesses in my childhood and adolescent years.
For decades now, I have been suffering with it. I`ve tried every alternative, nutritional, medical and lifestyle approach I could find, and generally got it to a manageable level, but it always was an ever present factor in my life that worsened over time.
Prior to the sauna therapy, a good month for me typically had five good days and twenty-five bad days. Now, I`m thrilled to report it`s just the opposite. A typical month for me now has five bad days and twenty-five good days!!! I finally see a future without chronic fatigue, and plan to make the sauna protocol part of my health routine for life. Thank you!
