What is Ozone?
Ozone is a colourless gas made up of three oxygen atoms. It is used as an alternative therapy to improve the body's intake of and use of oxygen, as well as to activate the immune system. In medicine, ozone therapy is used to disinfect and treat diseases by limiting the effects of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa.
What is Ozone Therapy and How Does it Work?
Ozone Therapy has been used to treat several conditions. By increasing the oxygen level in blood, ozone oxygenates the tissues in the whole body. Not only does it positively affect the appearance of our skin, it also helps our body’s healing process. It supports blood and liver detoxification, is anti-aging and boosts the immune system. It is administered intravenously, rectally or by a special sauna where your head is placed outside the treatment zone. For therapeutic purposes, a program of 10 sessions is recommended. Ozone is an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral agent and Ozone Therapy offers an alternative therapeutic immune support, without toxic side-effects.

Whether traveling, working long hours or battling premature aging, Ozone Therapy is an option worth considering. The benefits of this oxygenating boost to our immune system are a healthy alternative.

How the Ozone Pod Works
The Ozone is pumped with steam into the sauna (Ozone Pod). The steam forms a layer of water on the skin. The Ozone dissolves in the water which creates a hydrogen peroxide reaction on the skin and allows the body to generate Reactive Oxygen Species and Lipid Oxidation products. These are partly absorbed through the skin into the fat tissues, lymph and blood stream. This in turn kills viruses, bacteria, aberrant cells, stimulates production of red and white blood cells and aids the oxidation and detoxification processes of the body. Since most toxins are held in the lymphatic and fatty tissue, this treatment is the most effective way to eliminate them from the body – through the skin, giving the kidneys and liver less work to do!
What to Expect During A Session
Your practitioner will set the machine to personal requirements, after taking a full history and your current health condition/reason for the visit. You will sit inside the steam pod, unclothed for 30 minutes maximum (your privacy is cared for at all times), with head protruding from the pod and a towel around the neck so you are therefore not breathing in the ozone and steam mixture. In addition to being relaxing and soothing, the hyperthermia on the body mimics the beneficial effects of a fever, which means stimulation of new white blood cells and immune system, without any discomfort.
