Ozone Therapy

Oxygen is important for good health. The more O2 the body has, the more energized one feels and eradication of toxins and waste product becomes more efficient. Oxidation is important for the body’s metabolism, blood flow, respiratory system and digestive system. Sufficient O2 allows the body to heal itself and to maintain the immune system.

What is Ozone Therapy

The benefits of ozone have been known for years. Ozone steam therapy produces many benefits of ozone in a relaxed, pleasant and non-invasive treatment.

The patient sits upright in a steam chamber with their head outside the unit. Medical grade Oxygen is converted to Ozone and is introduced into the steam sauna cabinet. Simultaneously the temperature in the chamber increases and steam is released. The Ozone is then absorbed transdermally (across the skin) of the occupant. The result is a health effect on the occupant that combines the beneficial oxygenation and detoxification effects of both Ozone and Steam Sauna Therapy.

When the body is flooded with an activated form of oxygen, such as ozone, people consistently report that these conditions as well as their general health and energy levels dramatically improve. Ozone is a free radical scavenger. It attacks and destroys other free radicals in the body. From a technical point of view, cells infected with a virus are already weakened and this shows up as lowered levels of enzymatic activity in the cell wall, or “lipid envelope”. This substandard protein coating is unbalanced and incomplete, and it is the perfect attractor for the extra oxygen. Once the ozone attaches itself to the infected cell, it is destroyed and flushed from the system. Healthy cells are completely unaffected and there is no residual toxicity.

When the body is ill, it causes a fever, which increases the blood circulation and as a result, the flow of oxygen to the tissues. In the same way, a patient in an ozone steam sauna is warmed and then oxygen is carried throughout the blood, fat and lymphatic system. Since these are three of the places in the body where toxins are most commonly stored, this is an effective way to eliminate them from the body. And because they are eliminated through the skin, the kidneys experience no extra strain from the detoxification. The result is a health effect on the occupant that combines the beneficial oxygenation and detoxification effects of both Ozone and Steam Sauna Therapy.

Ozone Transdermal Therapy and Sports:
In recent times, more and more people are participating in a diverse range of athletic activities resulting in a significant increase in sports-related injuries. The most difficult part of having a sports-related injury isn’t the pain or the treatment, but the time lost from participating in one’s favorite activity.

Often, athletes return to full activity before their bodies have healed completely causing their condition to become more extreme or re-injure themselves. As a result of injuries professional athletes can lose their national rankings or their place on a team. They risk their careers when attempting to return to play before sufficient healing has taken place. Because professional athletes have so much at stake, many have turned to Ozone Trans dermal therapy to speed recovery when they suffer an injury.

In addition to speeding up recovery, Trans dermal Ozone therapy is also utilized as an ongoing “MAINTENENCE” modality. It ensures a peak physical and mental state. Health and fitness, endurance and stamina are not only vital during a sporting event, but maintaining exceptional health during training and recovery is a great advantage when using Trans-dermal Ozone Therapy.

How Ozone Transdermal Therapy speeds up healing:
Many sports injuries involve strains and sprains, which cause swelling and oedema (accumulation of excess fluid in connective tissue). These natural reactions to injury compress blood vessels and restrict the vital flow of oxygen-carrying plasma and red blood cells to the injury site. Cells and tissues surrounding the injury site become starved of oxygen, which impedes healing. In extreme cases, cell and tissue death can occur.

Ozone trans dermal therapy soothes muscles and calms nerves. Once Ozone disassociates within the body, it causes oxygenation of tissues at a cellular level. The singulet oxygen atom causes vasodilation, increasing the diameter of involved vessels allowing greater circulation to the area, therefore nutrients are delivered to the site of injury and inflammatory exudates are removed more rapidly. This singulet oxygen atom also oxidises particals and enogenous chemicals which cause prolonged swelling and bruising.

Red blood cells are more malleable thus giving them the ability to penetrate to the smallest of tissue structures, like fine capillaries.. Life giving oxygen is able to reach the site of injury so that cells can heal. Ozone accelerates regulation of the anti-oxidant system and protective cellular enzymes. Healing is significantly speeded up and athletes are able to return to their rigorous training schedules faster.

How Ozone Therapy Increases Endurance and Relieves Fatigue:
Oxygen is essential to athletic endeavors of any sort because it facilitates the production of glycogen, one of the main sources of energy to the muscle. In a process called glycolysis, a glucose (sugar) molecule is broken into two pyruvic acid molecules. A pyruvic acid molecule enters the muscle cell, where it combines with oxygen to produce adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP), the source of muscle energy. When insufficient oxygen is present to create ATP, the pyruvic acid becomes lactic acid. This lactic acid naturally diffuses to the bloodstream, where it is carried away.

However, during intense exercise, the lactic acid cannot be removed quickly enough, and it collects in the muscle cells, causing fatigue. Ozone trans dermal therapy assists tissue oxygenation, providing ample amounts of oxygen for the above energy production to occur, thus there is a delay in muscle entering into the fermentation process of anaerobic respiration (producing energy – ATP – without oxygen). Simply put, Ozone trans dermal therapy provides greatly increased oxygen saturation throughout the body, allowing the body to get the oxygen it needs to create ATP for energy and flush out the lactic acid that causes muscle fatigue.

The elevated oxygen levels help athletes increase performance and recover quickly after a workout. Ozone trans dermal therapy increases muscle pliability and prevents muscle spasm from occuring. In addition, increased oxygen delivery to the brain facilitates brain function and enhances an athlete’s ability to make the split-second decisions that can make a difference in the outcome of the game.

Clients experiences after Ozone treatment

“At my Pilates studio in Bedfordview they have opened an Ozone Therapy Studio and I signed on for a course. Wow! Every time I stepped out of the machine (almost like a mini sauna from the neck down) I felt lighter. People have commented that I look younger, my skin is glowing, my metabolism has definitely speeded up and I haven’t gotten sick this winter. You can check out all the medical gumph on Google – but in essence, it stimulates oxygen production in the body” – Helen Nicholson

“Every year around this time I manage to come down with Bronchitis. This is the first year in a long time that I have not gotten ill” – Client 1

“I suffer from extremely bad circulation in my lower arms, hands, lower legs and feet which turn blue to black in winter. Ozone treatment maintains normal oxygen levels and has helped with my blood circulation. My limbs are feeling so much warmer and have a healthier colour. My oxygen levels which usually drop down to about 70% are continuing at a normal 98%” – Client 2

“I feel completely energized. Even though I am under a tremendous amount of pressure at work I am feeling calm. The Ozone seems to have taken the edge off. The broken veins in my legs have improved dramatically. I started my course about 2 weeks after incurring a leg injury – a huge hematoma on my calf – after only 2 sessions, the lump halved in size and the healing has continued. I have also managed to halve my HRT intake, with NO return in menopausal symptoms since” – Client 3

“I am in remission from breast cancer. Every time I have been back for a check up my count has stayed just within the normal range. After completing a course of Ozone Therapy my count improved dramatically and the Ozone Therapy is the only thing I did differently.” – Client 4

“My daughter had tonsillitis earlier this year just before having to swim Midmar. After sessions in the Ozone cabinet it is the first time that she did not need to take a course of antibiotics to treat the tonsillitis and went on to enjoy her Midmar swim” – Client 5

“By this time of the year I am feeling exhausted and am really struggling to keep going. Ozone therapy has really energized me and I am able to cope with my end of year program.” – Client 6
