MEDICAL OZONE STEAM THERAPY
A hundred years ago there was 38% oxygen & 1% carbon dioxide in the air. Today it is 19% oxygen & 25% carbon dioxide. Ozone Therapy is non-invasive & used to improve health by detoxification, even for those who are not suffering from a particular disease. It is clean, safe & effective without prescription drugs. The effects of ozone sauna therapy are cumulative & the benefits reveal themselves over repetitive use. The results are astounding with no adverse effects.

OZONE / O3
Oxygen / O2 is colorless & odourless, while ozone/ O3 is blue (this is what makes the sky blue).
The ozone layer is a deep layer in the stratosphere, encircling the Earth. This layer shields the entire Earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The Montreal Protocol, an international treaty was signed in 1973, restraining the manufacture of harmful chemicals (chloroflurocarbons) to greatly reduce the destruction to the Ozone layer.
At ground level, Ozone comes from the oxidation of organic compounds, electrical discharges from generators & lightening. Direct inhalation causes respiratory irritation & coughing.
Ozone gas is an oxygen molecule with an extra oxygen atom, making it O3.
This extra oxygen atom breaks away, penetrating tissue & serum cells - initiating unique metabolic processes which has remarkable healing properties.
MEDICAL OZONE STEAM SAUNA THERAPY
Ozone is created by a medical ozone generator & pumped into the sauna chamber around the body of the person sitting in it, while leaving the head open in ambient air. Concurrently hot steam feeds into the sauna chamber.
Due to the heat & steam, the body's pores open & perspiration facilitates the absorption of Ozone with the fluids. The ozone breaks down rapidly: O3 to O2 + O-. This single negatively charged oxygen atom not only attaches itself to free radicals but it also creates organic peroxides.
The body is very capable of utilizing organic peroxides which increases oxygen in the blood.
Toxic substances are excreted via the liver, colon, kidneys & skin.
Once the therapy session has ended, the pores begin to close, & the body temperature returns to normal very rapidly. The Oxygen is still very much active on the surface of the skin & in the body. One should wait for a minimum of half an hour before showering, or until the smell of ozone is no longer present on the skin.
Note: Medical Ozone Therapy in no way helps in the actual elimination processes of the body once the sauna session has ended. Help your body eliminate waste by drinking lots of spring water, adequate exercise & sleep, no stimulants of any sort, intelligent eating habits while pacing yourself with life’s demands.
MEDICAL PROPERTIES OF OZONE
There are 5 properties that make ozone useful for so many medical problems:
- Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system. In the case of autoimmune disease where the immune system is overactive, ozone will calm it down. When the immune system is underactive ozone will stimulate it. This is because ozone stimulates the cell membranes of white blood cells to make cytokines such as gamma interferon, interleukin-2 and tumour necrosis factor-alpha.
- Ozone stimulates increased uptake of oxygen by stimulating an enzyme called DPG, which enables haemoglobin within red blood cells to release oxygen. Diabetics, for example, have less DPG which causes a relative cellular oxygen deprivation.
- Ozone improves circulation by enhancing the way blood flows through small blood vessels & capillaries, enabling hemoglobin to carry more oxygen to every cell.
- Ozone increases antioxidant protection. Most people with chronic diseases have deficient antioxidant defenses.
- Ozone is a powerful mitochondrial stimulant. Since the fundamental underlying cause of all degenerative diseases from diabetes to heart disease, is decreased mitochondrial energy production, ozone can often correct this problem. It does this by accelerating the Kreb's cycle which is the body’s aerobic conversion of carbohydrates (glucose) into energy.
HOW DOES OZONE WORK?
Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa: When there is insufficient oxygen to support the health of a cell, the cell turns to another source of energy, usually sugar – the fermentation of which upsets the metabolism opening the door to viral / bacterial invasion.
Ozone disrupts the bacterial cell envelope through oxidation. In fungi, ozone inhibits cell growth. With viruses, ozone upsets the reproductive with peroxidation. Cancer cells & disease-causing viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites which are anaerobic, die when exposed to an oxygen rich environment.
Enhancement of circulation: In circulatory disease, Ozone reduces/eliminates the clumping of red blood cells which hinders blood flow & restores oxygen carrying ability. Ozone also oxidizes the plaque in arteries, unclogging the blood vessels.
Stimulation of oxygen metabolism: Ozone causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate which leads to an increase of oxygen released to the tissues. Ozone activates the Krebs cycle stimulating production of ATP. There is a stimulation of the production of the enzymes, which act as free radical scavengers & cell wall protectors. Production of a platelet aggregation inhibitor & a vasodilator is also induced by ozone.
Formation of peroxides: Ozone reacts with the unsaturated fatty acids of the lipid layer in cellular membranes, forming hydro peroxides.
Dissolution of malignant tumours: Ozone inhibits tumour metabolism. It oxidizes the outer lipid layer of malignant cells & destroys them.
Activation of the immune system: Ozone increases the production of interferon & the greatest output of tumour necrosis factor (TNF) and interleukin 2. The production of interleukin 2 launches an entire cascade of subsequent immunological reactions.
• It is important to understand that the effect of ozone sauna therapy is cumulative.
• Occasional use, will provide "maintenance" benefit, for healthy skin, stimulation of the body's immune system & to maintain higher levels of oxygen in the bloodstream – in this instance Medical Ozone Therapy can be carried out 1 to 2 times per week.
• If you have an existing health condition, e.g. hypertension, that is questionable or may be contra-indicated for high heat therapy consult your medical doctor beforehand.
• Avoid taking stimulants prior to this therapy.
• Experience indicates that 30mins in an ozone steam sauna resets the immune system.
• If possible, avoid taking antioxidants 1hr prior to, & about 2hrs after Ozone Therapy.
• Do not use alcohol during or close to ozone therapy schedules. Allow 4hrs after the alcohol has been consumed. If you have been intoxicated, wait 24hrs+. But if you've had a few glasses of wine in the evening, by the following mid-morning ozone would be fine.
• NO ozone therapy while doing recreational drugs.
• NO ozone therapy if you have an organ transplant.
