We offer ozone sauna sessions as a standalone or adjunct modality in our clinic. Ozone is a form of activated oxygen, the single most important nutrient for the body. Every single cell requires oxygen to produce energy and maintain health. If the body is deprived of oxygen for any reason, there is an immediate decrease of all cellular functions which always leads to disease if not reversed. Lack of oxygen is probably the single most important cause of conditions such as cancer, fatigue, low immune function and many others. Flooding the body with oxygen causes instant reversal of fatigue, improved mood and increase of vitality.
BRIEF HISTORY OF MEDICAL OZONE
Ozone therapy is a type of oxidative therapy that has been widely used all over the world since its discovery in the mid 19th century. In 1896 the genius Nikola Tesla patented the first ozone generator in the US. During the first world war (1914-18) doctors applied ozone topically to infected wounds and discovered O3 not only remedied infection, but also had hemodynamic and anti-inflammatory properties. In the late 1980s German doctors were successfully treating HIV patients with IV ozone when no other treatment was available. Its effects are proven, consistent and with minimal side effects. Currently many doctors all over the world offer ozone therapy for cancer, infections, and overall wellness.
HOW DOES OZONE WORK FOR INFECTIONS?
Ozone destroys the bacterial cell wall through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins that it consists of. It also inhibits fungal cell growth. Similarly, ozone damages the viral capsid and prevents viral cell replication because peroxides formed in the blood as a result of ozone breakdown disrupt viral cell to cell communication. Once virus infected cells are eliminated, the body replaces them with healthy cells.
HOW DOES OZONE IMPROVE OXYGEN METABOLISM?
Ozone is a type of oxidative therapy that triggers a cascade of events in the body that leads to rapid healing. When ozone is introduced into the blood, it breaks down the glucose and releases energy and pyruvic acid, activates Krebs cycle, and increases cellular energy and oxygen in the tissues. Ozone also stimulates the production of free radical scavenger and cell protectors – glutathione, catalase and superoxide dismutase. It also leads to vasodilation and improved circulation.
HOW DOES OZONE SAUNA WORK?
We offer both steam and infrared saunas with ozone. The sauna heats up to a comfortable temperature and ozone is infused into the chamber. The heat promotes blood circulation to the skin so that the infused ozone gas is absorbed through the skin into the general circulation. Throughout the treatment, the patient’s head is outside the sauna, and the towel placed around the neck prevents ozone inhalation. Some people can still smell the ozone which is safe and normal. It is similar to smelling ozone after a thunderstorm. A steam from our ozone sauna also relieves coughing and throat irritation. Essential oils such as lavender or eucalyptus can be infused upon request. Our infrared sauna adds the benefits of far infrared both from the sauna and the gemstone mat which releases negative ions.
BENEFITS OF OZONE SAUNA
- Promotes healthy blood circulation
- Deactivates viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeast and protozoa such as HIV, Epstein Barr Virus, Lyme, etc.
- Improves and modulates the immune system
- Relieves inflammation, and eliminates aches and pains
- Modulates the immune system by increasing the production of interferon, tumor necrosis factor and interleukin-2
- Improves brain function and lowers stress, anxiety and depression
- Helps clear out heavy metals and other toxins
- Improves cellular metabolism and aids in weight loss by burning up to 600 calories per session
- Strengthens the ability to fight mental and physical stress
- Rejuvenates the skin
- Lessens fatigue through blood oxygenation
- Regenerates healthy tissue and heals wounds
- Fights cancer by destroying cancer causing pathogens and carcinogens, stimulating cancer fighting cytokines and white blood cells, decreasing lactic acid levels leading to glucose formation, and eliminating cancer cells by overloading them with peroxides
- Decreases uric acid and therefore relieves the pain associated with gout
- Slows down aging
- Relieves migraines and headaches
ADVANTAGES OF OZONE THERAPY
- Safety record for over 150 years
- The body’s cells do not develop tolerance or resistance to ozone as it does to chemotherapy agents, radiation or antibiotics
- Ozone does not damage healthy cells and promotes the healing of damaged cells
- Ozone is cost effective
