Finding light in a fight for health

Life Stories

For a long time, Candice Westphal just thought she was stressed and working too hard. She’d been a driven marketing executive in healthcare, top global entertainment companies, and the NFL for more than 25 years. For the last decade of her career, she battled extreme energy depletion and a host of other symptoms that the resilient professional pushed through over and over again. For those long 10 years she lived with a lower quality of life from her health struggles though she was determined not to let it get her down. Thinking she was experiencing the effects of too much stress, she took an early retirement and began spending more time at home focusing on her health. Instead, she got even worse.

In her focus on her health, Candice had spent time using a Sunlighten infrared sauna at a day spa to treat herself once in a while. Eventually a friend invited her to use the same sauna more regularly at her  friend’s house. Candice noticed she felt better, had more energy, and was sleeping better. She and her husband decided to purchase their own. Learn how having a Sunlighten infrared sauna in her home became a necessity rather than a luxury during her recovery.
