What is an Ozone Sauna? What are the benefits of an Ozone Sauna?
You would think at first that an "Ozone Sauna" would be just any ozone combined with, or put into, any Sauna. But it is not as simple as that! Read on to find out what you need to have in order to "REALLY" have an Ozone Sauna that is safe to use, and also provides you with the benefits you are seeking!
An "Ozone Sauna" is specifically a "Steam Sauna Cabinet" with a source of Ultra Pure Contaminant Free Ozone introduced into the interior of the Steam Sauna. Let's break that down a little bit to understand this more clearly...we'll take this step by step:
1. "Steam Sauna" - In order for the ozone to be absorbed through the skin, the skin MUST be wet. For this reason, a dry heat sauna, like an Ifrared Sauna, just won't work. The "steam" is absolutely essential to experiencing the reported benefits of an "Ozone Sauna". (See more about the benefits below). The additional benefit of the steam is that the toxins coming out of your pores and onto your skin, are gently rinsed away by the steam while you enjoy your 'steam sauna'. This does not happen when you are in a dry heat infrared sauna. The toxins just sit on the skin with the sweat and are reabsorbed.
2. What about the word "Cabinet" in "Steam Sauna Cabinet"?
This describes a very specialized design of steam sauna, where the person in the sauna has their head sticking out of the top of the sauna. This ensures that the occupant of the sauna is able to breathe pure room air, and never breathes any ozone. Ozone provides only positive effects to your body and skin, HOWEVER, ozone is irritating to lung tissue. This is the reason that an "Ozone Sauna" session MUST take place when you are inside a Steam Sauna Cabinet, so that your head stays outside the sauna, and away from the ozone.
3. What about the ozone? (Hint: a) The ozone has to be PURE and....b) The ozone has to be the right concentration)
The final secret to successful ozone sauna sessions is that you can't just use any ozone generator. Most ozone generators you find on the market are just 'air purifiers'. The ozone they produce is not pure enough, nor strong enough to provide you with any benefit. You'll smell ozone, but the strength (or "concentration") of the ozone just isn't high enough to provide you with any benefit. What you really need is a high quality ozone generator that creates the ozone from pure oxygen (not air) and produces this ozone in specific and accurate 'concentrations' or 'strengths'. You have to choose a high quality ozone generator that produces accurate concentrations or 'strengths' of ozone. Remember also though, that you are absorbing this ozone through your skin, so, the ozone has to be pure and contaminant free.
To avoid all of the "home made" ozone generators on the market only choose an ozone generator that has been designed and built to specifically produce Pure Contaminant Free Ozone in precision concentrations. You should also ensure that the ozone generator has a North American Safety and Quality Certification for which factory inspections are required. In North America that would mean ensuring that the ozone generator has one of these Safety Certifications: QAI (Quality Auditing Institute), CSA, UL, or ETL.
So the bottom line is this: To provide the benefits you have heard about for ozone saunas, and to keep you safe, the Ozone Sauna you purchase MUST be a Steam Sauna Cabinet
accompanied by a high quality Ultra Pure Ozone Generator that produces accurate concentrations (strengths) of ozone from pure oxygen (not air!).
Now You are Ready!
Why Would you Use an Ozone Sauna and Why?
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 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/steam 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
Ozone to the Steam Sauna (remember: It MUST be a Steam Cabinet) brings oxygen to the tissues for enhanced health
and vitality. Moreso, over the years of Ozone Steam Sauna Cabinet use around the world, Ozone Experts have the experience to state that the same beneficial effects of Ozone Major Autohemotherapy, and Rectal Insufflation, can be attributed to the use of an Ozone Sauna Cabinet. These include but aren't limited to the following Benefits of Ozone Sauna:
Benefits of Ozone Saunaa:
Relaxes and loosens muscles by reducing the buildup of lactic acid and increasing
Oxidizes toxins so they can be eliminated through the skin, lungs, kidneys
Boosts blood circulation, helping injured muscles to repair quicker.
Stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels relieving pain and speeding
the healing process.
Aids in the elimination of 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
