Ozone Pod Therapy
What is Ozone Pod Therapy ?
Ozone was discovered in Germany in 1839. The steam ozone therapy was first used in 1881 by Dr Kellog. Oxygen is the most vital element required for human life and it is the key to good health. The best way to optimize health is to oxygenate every cell in the body. The more oxygen we have in our system, the more energy we produce. And the more energy we produce, the more efficiently we can eliminate waste products. Healthy cells require 40% oxygen in the air we breathe. This amount of oxygen was found in the atmosphere 200 years ago. Today, due to pollution, deforestation and overpopulation the air we breathe has only between 8% – 18% oxygen. The Ozone Pod puts oxygen back into our oxygen-starved bodies.
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, cancer cells, stimulates production of red and white blood cells and aids the oxidation and detoxification processes of the body. Since the majority of toxins are held in the lymph and the fat, 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. The first session might (but not necessarily) provoke a healing crisis due to the detox, which can involve a headache, nausea, pain, tiredness, and colds symptoms depending on your general health status.
