Benefits of Ozone and Sauna Therapy

 

Ozone therapy helps in so many ways because it is anti-fungal, antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory


Ozone, or “activated oxygen”, is introduced into a special steam sauna cabinet, where it then is absorbed transdermal (across the skin) of the occupant. The result is a health effect on the occupant that combines the beneficial oxygenation and detoxification effects of both Ozone and Sauna Therapy.

 

Advantages of Combining Ozone and Sauna Therapy

The use of a sauna should be an important part of any detoxification program. The sauna increases the eliminative, detoxifying and cleansing capacity of the skin by stimulation of the sweat glands and also promotes healthy skin tone and texture due to increased blood circulation. Using the steam sauna with ozone allows the steam to surround the body and ozone can be introduced through the skin. Humid heat opens the pores, which allows the ozone through the skin to the bloodstream, where it can travel to the fat and lymph tissue. It is very important to cleanse the lymph tissue of toxins and the ozone/steam sauna is the easiest and best way to accomplish this.

Artificially induced hyperthermia (rising body temperature results in the destruction of bacteria and viruses) combined with heavy sweating and a cleansing effect initiated by ozone will result in the elimination of toxins accumulated mainly in the lymphatic system relieving the liver from the difficult task of dealing with them. Through the centuries, men and women have used steam to purify the skin, soothe sore muscles, and boosts circulation The combined action of moist heat and ozone cleanse the lymphatic system, which carries 90% of the body’s fluids. Ozone brings oxygen to the tissues for enhanced health and vitality. 


Ozone and Sauna Therapy Benefits List:


The main reason the ozone help on so many levels is that it is anti-bacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal and one of the best anti-inflammatory. 

Ozone therapy/Oxygen therapy starts with oxygen which is 2 atoms, passed through an ozone machine to produce ozone which is 3 atoms, a smaller molecule than oxygen, easier for your body to absorb. The lifetime of the ozone molecule is about 20 min. and then return back to an oxygen molecule, in turn, oxygenating the body. It is well known that disease cannot grow in a well-oxygenated body.

Pain management 

 

  • Skin disorders, eczema, psoriasis 

  • Dramatically increase oxygenation of the tissues and cells

  • Stimulate the Immune System

  • Increase the White Blood Cell count

  • Increase circulation, oxygen and nutrient delivery within the body

  • Increase the distensibility of the Red Blood Cell so that it can squeeze through your tiny blood vessels into tissues

  • Boost cellular mediated immunity (part of the immune system)

  • Increase 2,3-DPG: Responsible for the blood’s ability to release oxygen in your tissues

  • Purge the body of accumulated toxins such as pesticides, PCBs, drug residues, and acidic wastes

  • Produce Interleukin II, Gamma interferon (anti-cancer substances)

 

 

 


Ozone Therapy includes:

 

  • Meniscal tears and joint disorders

  • Shingles (Herpes zoster) and Herpes Simplex

  • Herniated Discs

  • Diabetic ulcers and venous stasis

  • Allergies & chronic sinusitis

  • Lyme disease

  • Alzheimer’s, senile dementia

  • Arthritis

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • Colitis and Crohn’s

  • Tinnitus

  • Chronic hepatitis

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Candidiasis and many more conditions

 

 

 

Major Effects Of Ozone


1. Ozone stimulates the production of white blood cells. These cells protect the body from viruses, bacteria, fungi and cancer. If, deprived of oxygen, these cells malfunction. They fail to eliminate invaders and even turn against normal, healthy cells (allergic reactions). Ozone significantly raises the oxygen levels in the blood for long periods after ozone administration;

 

2. Interferon levels are significantly increased. Interferons are globular proteins. Interferons orchestrate every aspect of the immune system, inhibit viral replication.

 

3. Ozone stimulates the production of Tumor Necrosis Factor. TNF is produced by the body when a tumor is growing. Ozone stimulates the secretion of IL-2. Interleukin-2 is one of the cornerstones of the immune system. It is secreted by T-helpers. T-helper causes it to produce more IL-2. Ozone’s main duty is to induce Lymphocytes to differentiate and proliferate, yielding more T-helpers, T-suppressors, cytotoxic T’s, T-delayed’s and T-memory cells.

 

4. Ozone kills most bacteria at low concentrations. The metabolism of most bacteria is on average one-seventeenth as efficient as our own.

 

5. Ozone is effective against all types of fungi. This includes systemic Candida albicans, athlete’s foot, molds, mildews, yeasts, and even mushrooms.

 

6. Ozone fights viruses in a variety of ways. As discussed above, ozone also goes after the viral particles directly.

 

7. Ozone is antineoplastic. This means that ozone inhibits the growth of new tissue because rapidly dividing cells shift their priorities away from producing the enzymes needed to protect themselves from the ozone. Cancer cells are rapidly dividing cells and are inhibited by ozone.

 

8. Ozone oxidizes arterial plaque. It breaks down the plaque involved in both Arteriosclerosis and Atherosclerosis.

 

9. This means ozone has a tendency to clear blockages of large and even smaller vessels. This allows for better tissue oxygenation in deficient organs.

 

10. Ozone increases the flexibility and elasticity of red blood cells.
