In my limited experience with an FIR sauna, I used it for about a week , 30mins a day, sweated lots and I believe started to feel much better (maybe less toxic load?).
Unfortunately I then started to feel like I had a case of severe internal sunburn (felt hot and red raw like a lobster but with no external sign of burns). Still no idea what this was but it lasted for months and still has not fully cleared up. Not at all pleasant, but I haven’t found others here reporting any issues like this.
But when I had to stop I actually felt WORSE than before I started using the sauna and wondered if this was because a lymph detox pathway was now activated but not available (like, as you say, “toxins moving round”).
So, excluding this “burn” issue, my limited experience appears the opposite of yours – ie. I felt better when using, worse when stopped. Don’t know if this helps, but maybe adds to the mix.
