Episode 101: Healing Yourself from Toxins
I had the pleasure of speaking with Eileen Durfee, a former nuclear power plant employee who became unwell after chemical exposure. We chatted about her journey of overcoming her own issues, and how this led her down the path of becoming an inventor and entrepreneur, helping thousands of other people around the world enjoy a better quality of life in the process.
Eileen shared that from a young age she was always in varying degrees of pain, to what she called “structural issues” with large growth spurts and being involved in a car accident she says that there was always some form of pain to deal with. When she was 17, she came across a chiropractor who taught her specialized exercises to assist with some of the issues she was dealing with, which temporarily helped, but at age 20 had a silver amalgam filling which unleashed a barrage of other health conditions including psoriasis, allergies, anxiety and panic attacks. She says traditional doctors would offer temporary solutions, but nothing was sustainable in the long term.
Eileen explained that she had an underlying feeling that her body had its own capability to heal itself, so began exploring ways in which she could ease her symptoms and pain. She ate a paleo diet, tried colonic cleansing, and began educating herself on ways she could develop a more in-tune relationship with her body. Eileen found herself particularly drawn to “gizmos” such as multiple wave oscillators and infrared saunas, where she could experience relief but not have to ingest medication.
Eileen shared that she began studying near-infrared light, and its benefits and effects whilst being used in a sauna. She wasn’t satisfied with what was currently on the market but growing up with a family who were creative and “handy” afforded her the opportunity to devise the concept of what she wanted to create, and build it herself. Eileen spoke about how saunas have always been known as excellent ways to eliminate toxins from the body, and explained the phenomenal difference in her well-being that she noticed when she began using a near-infrared light sauna daily. Eileen has now developed her own convertible sauna tent, constructed with nontoxic polymers and other organic materials.
Thank you for the enlightening and insightful chat, Eileen!
