Lauren Berlingeri is a former fitness model turned integrative nutrition expert and sauna entrepreneur – and a bona fide badass. She’s taken on Navy SEAL hell night, squared off in an MMA bout, boxed at Gleason’s gym, trained with New York City firefighters, and withstood the intensity of NASCAR.
But a vicious case of cystic acne pushed Lauren to explore the world of wellness. During this journey, she discovered infrared saunas – and the first time she stepped in an one was life changing. Through all her physical and nutritional training, nothing else made her feel so good or in tune with her body.
Infrared saunas give you the calorie burn (and high) of a workout out while simultaneously calming your nervous system, detoxifying the body, boosting your metabolic rate, and triggering the happiness response in your brain. The result is a rejuvenating experience that leaves you feeling euphoric and healthy.
The experience not only helped heal Lauren’s cystic acne, it also inspired her to open HigherDOSE, a NYC spa focused around next-level health and wellness therapies that heal the body and get you high naturally.
The only downside is that these things are huge, and not everyone is lucky enough to live in a city like NYC or LA with locations like HigherDOSE. That’s why they partnered with Dr. Raleigh Duncan, founder of our friends at Clearlight Saunas, to create the Infrared Sauna Blanket. It feels like a warm hug and offers all the same benefits of the sauna, but at a fraction of the size and cost so you can use it at home or while traveling.

ORGANIFI. I talk about the Organifi green juice a lot because it’s delicious and I eat it every day, but did you know that they also make a red juice? This red juice powder is packed with antioxidants, immune-boosting herbs, and adaptogens like reishi and cordyceps mushrooms (which are really hard to make taste good – I have no idea how they did this). It’s super quick and easy nutrition on-the-go. Save 20% using code “LIFESTYLIST” at http://www.organifi.com/luke.
