SEA BRIGHT, N.J., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Among the risks of burns, skin cancer and premature aging, tanning beds haven't had the healthiest reputation. But with the founding of her new company, Island Sun Tanning Beds (http://www.islandsuntanningbeds.com), and this week's launch of an economy-buster sale, Kathleen Kalaf is out to educate consumers on just how healthy, energy-efficient and affordable tanning at home can now be.
These are a far cry from tanning beds popular a decade ago. Island Sun Tanning Beds are manufactured using state-of-the-art electronic ballasts, which eliminate the electromagnetic field (EMF) associated with the magnetic ballasts used by other tanning bed brands. According to natural health proponent Dr. Joseph Mercola, EMFs have been linked to cancer and other health problems.
Another benefit of electronic ballasts: They're easier on the environment. Tanning beds with electronic ballasts require significantly less power to operate, which adds up to a cost savings as well. At the same time, Island Sun Tanning Beds' spotlight technology provides 50% more tanning power -- delivering essential Vitamin D to the body more quickly than other tanning beds.
In an effort to help more people enjoy the health benefits of indoor tanning, Island Sun Tanning Beds is offering economy-buster prices for floor models, demo models and units with minor aesthetic defects. Available in 18- and 22-lamp beds, the Island Sun models are priced well below retail value.
Kalaf partnered with an industry-leading manufacturer to create Island Sun Tanning Beds in January 2009. At the time, she was bedridden with systemic candida, a debilitating overgrowth of a normally benign organism throughout the body that causes a myriad of problems, including immune system failure. Having to leave her job due to her illness, Kalaf was hoping to replace her lost income.
Island Sun Tanning Beds has restored Kalaf's income. But it has also given her the opportunity to speak to many people about health -- specifically, about the often misdiagnosed problem of systemic candida. Now healthy for the first time in eight years, Kalaf enjoys the feeling of wellbeing she gets from using Island Sun Tanning Beds and has taken on the mission of educating the public about systemic candida; she is currently in the process of forming a non-profit organization dedicated to that mission.
"I have committed my life to health and to educating others about systemic candida," Kalaf explained. "Island Sun Tanning Beds, with their health benefits, reduced health risks, affordability and lower environmental impact, can be part of a healthy lifestyle. I encourage anyone who has dismissed indoor tanning as unsafe to take a second look. I think they'll be pleasantly surprised by the advances in technology that have made Island Sun Tanning Beds possible."
