Ozone Sauna treatments have been used therapeutically for over 140 years to deliver medically proven beneficial results to the human body and has been used in combination with steam saunas in particular since 1881. In addition to this, sauna type treatments are represented in a number of traditional healing practices in many cultures throughout the globe.
In fact, Hippocrates, who is considered to be the father of modern medicine is often quoted as saying over two thousand years ago; “Give me the power to create a fever and I will cure any illness”.
The Benefits of Steam Sauna and Ozone Sauna
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 as an Ozone Sauna 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 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 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, boost circulation and to simply relax. 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. The combination of steam and ozone is a natural, effective way to promote a refreshing sense of well-being. We believe that a an Ozone Sauna cabinet represents a pleasant and easy to follow form of body cleansing.
Benefits of Ozone Sauna:
Relaxes and loosens muscles by reducing the buildup of lactic acid and increasing muscle flexibility.
Oxidizes toxins so they can be eliminated through the skin, lungs, kidneys and colon.
Boosts blood circulation, helping injured muscles to repair quicker.
Stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels relieving pain and speeding the healing process.
Eliminates bacterial and viral infections of all kinds.
Speeds up the metabolic processes of the inner organs and endocrine glands resulting in a loss of 200-450 calories in a 20 minute session.
Research shows steam hyperthermia and Ozone Sauna effective treatment for:
* Detoxification programs
* Immune system deficiencies
* Pain management
* Stress and muscle tension
* Increasing body metabolism
* Elimination of toxins
* Blood circulation
Ozone Sauna treatments generally run for 30 min and a course of treatments will be recommended. Generally not less than 10 treatments are required and sometimes continuing for 3 months or more, depending on the individual and the specific condition being treated.
Additionally, the following is an excerpt from a study carried out by the depts of Physiology and Cardiology of the Sienna University Italy:
“What might be the practical usefulness of BOEX (Ozone Sauna) and does it have a future?
If one uses the standard optimised AHT (Major Autohemotherapy) method, one is able to slowly treat several ailments without any risk to the patient, but venous punctures are necessary.
Rectal insufflation is extremely easy to do, very cheap and practically free of risk. Yet it is objected to by some patients and while the delivery of a precise volume of gas is certain, owing to the faecal and luminal content it remains uncertain if the ozone dose is effectively utilized.
BOEX (Ozone Sauna) has distinct advantages; it is simple to perform, fairly inexpensive, non-invasive and does not involve handling of potentially infectious blood. There have noted some problems: the cabin must be well insulated and BOEX (Ozone Sauna) is best performed in rooms that have an entrance room, treatment room and another room with a shower. Whether this approach will truly become useful remains to be established by random clinical trials, but at this stage it seems to represent a promising tool to modify the biological responses in some pathological states:-
1.1 The activation of the immune system may be useful in chronic viral diseases (HBV, HCV, Herpes1 and 2, HIV HPV). It may be proficient to treat chronic fatigue syndrome even though it is probably not a viral disease.
1.2 Metastatic cancer, to avoid palliative chemotherapy, which is usually useless and associated with negative prognosis. However, it could be even tried as an immunoadjuvant at earlier stages with polychemotherapy. Cancer is a progressive disease and without deceiving the patient it may be possible to improve the quality of life.
1.3 Vasculopathies, particularly hind limb ischaemia due to atherosclerosis, Bueger disease and diabetes. Necrotic ulcers and dystrophic lesions must be stimulaneously treated with topical therapy. Patients with severe coronary atherosclerosis, recent myocardial infarction or severe hypertension may undergo BOEX BUT without hyperthermia, starting with a 10 minute period and scaling up slowly. Patients with asthma and BPCO must also be treated cautiously. However it can be added that vasculopathies are positively sensitive to ozonetherapy.
1.4 Age related macular degeneration, exclusively the atrophic form. Keeping the heat at a low level.
1.5 Sclerodermia with Raynaud’s phenomenon.
1.6 Moderate burns, to prevent or reduce bacterial infections and enhance healing.
1.7 Some muscular-tendinous lesions in athletes, to reduce muscle contraction and alleviate pain.
1.8 Skin disease such as infections, psoriasis, perhaps atopic dermatitis and eczema.
1.9 Advanced lipodystrophies, such as Madelund disease. The Lipodystrophy occurring during highly active anti-retroviral therapy may also be advantageously treated. “
