Guatemala and rain! Have you ever walked outside after an electrical storm and noticed how vital the air seems? This is due to the negatively charged ions and extra oxygen in the air. This “charged air” is actually more vital and healthy than regular air, mostly because it contains ozone.
While air is known as O2, ozone is actually O3. This extra oxygen molecule is easily liberated, and when it enters the human body it offers incredible health benefits. Oxygen is vital to your health, and ozone is a vital form of oxygen. When ozone comes in contact with a moist surface it will release the extra oxygen. This makes ozone an ideal cleaning agent. Ozone is used worldwide to purify drinking water, and ozone-infused water is excellent for rinsing foods and keeping gums super healthy.
The medical use of ozone has been studied by doctors since the 1800s as they quickly discovered that it helps with wound healing and all forms of tissue repair. Ozone’s extra oxygen molecule not only oxidizes (destroys) bacteria and viruses, it also releases oxygen into the tissues for faster healing. The only caution is that ozone should not be inhaled directly into the lungs in large concentrations, as the delicate tissues can be irritated. Ozone can safely enter the bloodstream through injection or by direct contact with the skin and mucus membranes.
Wondrous healing results have been documented from ozone therapy, from cancers to inflammations to the reversal of AIDS symptoms. Scientist Nikola Tesla patented an ozone generator in 1896, and it was widely used to help heal skin irritations, bug bites and wounds.
While the FDA has stalled the use of ozone in the U.S., it is a highly regarded treatment throughout Europe and many other countries. It is especially valuable in dentistry, where the teeth and gums must be thoroughly cleansed before placing a restoration. Thousands of studies have demonstrated that ozone is safer than any pharmaceutical drug and virtually free from side effects.
Ozone treatment reverses many cancers and other medical problems. This is because our bodies were designed to use oxygen. The addition of ozone offers a boost to the body’s natural healing processes. In fact, in ancient times the oxygen level in the air was far higher than today. It has been demonstrated that pre-historic oxygen levels exceeded 35 per cent of the air; our air today only holds 20 percent of this important gas. Without adequate oxygen, brain function suffers, cancer cells grow and aging is accelerated. This is one of the reasons why doctors recommend exercise—it is not just about moving the body; it is recommendedbecause exercise increases blood flow and brings oxygen to the tissues. Oxygen supports health.
Transdermal ozone is a method in which ozone is introduced into the body via the skin while the individual is sitting in a hot steam cabinet. An ozone steam cabinet offers tremendous health benefits. The pores of the skin open as a result of being surrounded by the warm steam, and ozone enters the body transdermally (i.e. via the skin). The ozone then penetrates the blood, lymph and fat. Steam ozone therapy is one of the most powerful methods of detoxifying and oxygenating the body in existence.
Steam ozone has a very beneficial effect on the body and one’s emotions. This is because heat has a naturally relaxing effect and partly because ozone breaks down excess adrenaline in the body, producing overall calm. We have offered this treatment at both our Lake Atitlán spa at TOSA La Laguna and our new Antigua Avesa Holistic spa. Consistently theresults are a quick, relaxing way to restore peak health and vitality. Regular use of a steam ozone therapy can help to keep your body operating at its best.
When ozone steam therapy becomes regular part of your wellness program you will immediately feel the positive results and gain that natural smile of vitality.
