Ozone Steam Sauna

Most microbes, including cancer cells, are what we term as anaerobic organisms, this means that they thrive in an environment where oxygen is absent, they cannot, therefore, survive in oxygen rich surroundings. Increasing the oxygen content of blood then creates an atmosphere that makes it more difficult for cancer cells to survive, thus, having high oxygen in the blood stream reduces the risk of cancer dramatically. In addition to creating a low survivability environment for cancer cells, when the blood is rich with highly activated oxygen (usually called ozone) the free radicals in the blood are oxidized promoting a natural cleansing of the blood.

The ozone steam sauna is probably one of the most recent advancement in saunas. Although relatively new to the market, and thus its maximum potentials yet unknown, studies indicate that long term use of this new innovation has the potential to slow down or even stop the growth of cancer cells. This is when it is combined with the traditional therapies of cancer and when administered in strictly controlled settings.

Background of the Ozone Steam Sauna

Ozone therapy has been derived from a natural phenomenon wherein nature itself produces ozone in order to purify the atmosphere and act to hinder the decay of organic materials where bacteria and other disease pathogens flourish. In the atmosphere, the ozone occurs naturally, (O3) when the ordinary oxygen reacts with itself through the action of ultraviolet rays. The ozone produced is highly unstable and the extra atom of oxygen readily reacts with other elements, through oxidation.

Potential Benefits of Ozone Steam Sauna Therapy

Ozone is one of the most powerful oxidation agents in nature, thus it is ideal to be used in purification and cleansing chemical reactions. Since healthy cells flourish when the oxygen content is high, ozone, providing a high source of oxygen has been used in administering therapy for many years now. These studies began in about the middle 1800s. To date though, the effectiveness of this has not yet been proven. Many articles however have been published internationally reporting the positive effects of the ozone in an extensive array of pathologies.

The general known health benefits of the ozone treatment are as follows:

  1. Disinfects bacteria, fungi, yeast, viruses and protozoans that thrive in the blood.
  2. Stimulates and strengthens the immune system of the body.
  3. Lymph systems as well as the blood are cleansed.
  4. Increased circulation of blood in the body and removal of arterial blocks.
  5. Increases metabolism by increased supply of oxygen in the blood.
  6. Peroxides are produced.
  7. Malignant growths or tumors in the body are dissolved.

Ozone steam therapy stimulates the body to remove the accumulated waste in the body, it does not however, aid in the actual elimination of the waste. Oxidative stress also is a danger posed by ozone therapy. This happens when the cycle of oxidation and deoxidation in the body is flung out of balance. Anti oxidants are therefore imperative in an ozone therapy in order to control the variables and prevent oxidative stress. Since this therapy can be potentially dangerous, it is recommended that treatment should be taken only in highly regarded centers.
