Four Ways To Use Ozone Saunas
The warm, steam of the sauna relaxes the muscles and nervous system. Tensions melt away. The oxidative power of ozone oxidize toxic chemicals, virus and bacteria while enhancing excretion of heavy metals in the lipid tissue and leaves pure oxygen in the blood stream as by product. The sauna offers a healthful method to unwind after a difficult day.
Periodic use enhances circulation, nourishes the glands, cleanses the skin and offers many of the benefits of exercise.
Due to the oxygen enhancement it rapidly increases energy levels and provides a feeling of wellbeing.
Native Americans and other groups use sweat lodges for sacred ceremony. The warmth, atmosphere make it excellent for emotional and physical cleansing.The Smith ozone sauna is a marvelous place to contemplate, meditate, pray and release fears and negativity. Adding sound, color, aromatherapy and other modalities can enhance the effects of the heat.
Spending 30 min to an hour a day in ozone sauna therapy is a powerful yet safe healing modality. The sauna is excellent to add energy to the body, decongest internal organs, assist circulation, heal infections and help many other body systems. Oxidative therapies are known to slow down the aging process. In particular, conventional medicine often overlooks the effects of toxic chemicals and heavy metals on one’s health. Genetics is emphasized, but there is little mention that nutritional deficiency and toxic agents cause genetic defects. The following sections describe toxins the ozone sauna can help remove in more detail.
Know your enemy …….!
Organic Chemicals Never before in history have bodies been exposed to such large numbers and amounts of toxic chemicals. From building materials and home furnishings to food additives, solvents and thousands of other products, chemicals are part of the modern lifestyle. Many harm the body, though the effects are often subtle. They accumulate in the water and air, so no location remains unaffected. Many degrade slowly so their effects are cumulative. Avoiding exposure is all but impossible. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), toxic chemicals are the worst environmental problem in the nation, responsible for up to 80% of cancer deaths. One class of chemicals, pesticides and herbicides, are among the most toxic substances known to mankind. Several billion pounds are sprayed each year directly on our crops. Besides eating and wearing the residues, they contaminate the air and water supplies for hundreds of years. Testing for thousands of chemicals is costly when tests even exist, and medicine has little to offer to eliminate them from the body. The diseases they cause have become epidemics. Ozone Sauna therapy shines brightly as a safe, effective therapeutic modality to help eliminate chemical toxins from the body.
Toxins interfering with enzyme Production
Toxic metals.According to the United States EPA, toxic metals are the second worst environmental problem. Pesticides may contain lead, copper, arsenic and other metals. Fifty million mercury amalgam fillings are still placed in America each year.
Heavy metal deposit intefering with enzyme production.
Some toxic metals replace vital minerals in enzyme binding sites. However, they do not function as well. When they accumulate, they contribute to hundreds of physical and emotional health conditions.
Lead contributes to more than 100 conditions including neuromuscular and bone diseases, fractures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, anemia and others. Some historians believe the Roman Empire fell because lead water pipes slowly poisoned the people and decreased their strength and intelligence. Sources of lead include old paint, inks, pesticides, a few hair dyes, solder and other metal products.
Cadmium contributes to high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer, fatigue, arthritis, violence, infections, back pain and other conditions. Common sources are cigarette or marijuana smoke, refined foods and tap water. One may feel tired for a few days if one eliminates a lot of cadmium at one time.
Mercury toxicity is present in almost everyone today. Mercury is found in silver amalgam dental fillings, tuna and swordfish, contact lens solution, vaccines and various other products. Mercury may contribute to hypothyroidism, an impaired immune system, digestive problems such as yeast infections, emotional difficulties, learning disabilities, ADHD and many other conditions.
Aluminum is associated withmemory impairment and Alzheimer’s s disease. Aluminum is widely used in beverage cans, aluminum foils, antiperspirants, antacids, and aluminum cookware. Peppermint, spearmint and wintergreen are naturally high in aluminum.
Fluoride contributes to brown staining of the teeth, weakened bones, hip fractures, hypothyroidism, mental impairment, birth defects and cancer. Fluoride compounds are found in pesticides, air pollution, toothpastes, and are added to many water supplies. Foods processed with water including baby foods and juices often contain too much fluoride.
Large, worldwide studies show little or no benefit of fluoride for tooth decay, contrary to many news reports. Only the United States, Australia and Great Britain continue to add toxic fluoride compounds to drinking water.
Chlorine toxicity is associated with fatigue, heart disease, cancer and renal problems. Chlorine is required in the body, and found in salt and other foods. Many chlorinated compounds, however, are highly toxic.These include chlorinated tap water, chlorinated hydrocarbons used in pesticides and other chemicals, bathing in chlorinated water, pools and hot tubs, and the use of chlorine bleach and other chlorine-containing household products.
Toxin Inhibit Substrate Binding
Arsenic contributes to liver and kidney damage, weakness, diarrhea, muscle spasms, headaches and other symptoms. Sources include pesticides, beer, tap water, table salt, paints and other chemical products.
Physiological minerals may also become toxic. For example, hexavalent chromium is toxic while trivalent chromium is not. Vital minerals can also become toxic if they are unusable by the body. Calcium is needed in the bones. When it accumulates in the arteries, joints,kidneys or elsewhere it becomes toxic.
A similar situation occurs with iron, manganese, chromium, copper, selenium and other vital minerals, contributing to many health conditions. Of these, the most commonly seen are copper, iron and manganese toxicity. They will often be revealed on a hair mineral test at some point if one pursues a corrective nutrition and sauna therapy program. All three of these minerals help support weak adrenal glands.
Copper is high in vegetarian proteins and associated with zinc deficiency and adrenal exhaustion, both very common conditions. Copper imbalance contributes to emotional conditions, skin problems, joint pain,cancer, migraine headaches and premenstrual tension. The symptoms of copper toxicity are identical to the symptoms of premenstrual tension. Copper elimination in a sauna may be accompanied by a rotten egg odor. This is probably sulfur that is bound to copper to protect the body from the worst effects of excess copper. Because of the ozone you will never smell this.
Manganese is found in unleaded gasoline and foods such as tea. Both copper and manganese are needed in the body. However, the body may convert manganese into a toxic, oxidized form (MnO6) that helps support weak adrenal glands. This manganese is not usable and must be eliminated. Manganese elimination in a sauna may cause a slightly metallic odor.
Iron toxicity is also very common, although often not revealed on standard tests. Iron is added to all white flour products such as breads, crackers, pasta and pastry. Vitamin and mineral supplements often contain a lot of iron. Iron can accumulate to help support weak adrenal glands. It is stored in the liver and other organs and may contribute to heart disease, cancer, emotional difficulties and other health problems. Ozone Sauna therapy is excellent to remove excess minerals, whether they are toxic metals or unusable or excess physiological minerals.
Biological Toxins. Infection plays a role in more conditions than previously thought, from artery disease and ulcers to arthritis and colitis. Many bacteria and fungi produce endo-and exotoxins that cause both local and systemic disease. More and more of them are resistant to drug therapy. Bodies weakened by toxic chemicals and heavy metals are more subject to attack by infections. Many infections are chronic, causing nagging complaints that never go away. This occurs especially in parts of the body with poor circulation such as the joints, ears and sinuses. Heating the body is a natural mechanism the body uses to fight infections. Ozone Sauna therapy not only heats, but powerfully improves circulation, induce ozone to help fight both acute and chronic infections.
Toxin Deposit interfering with enzyme production
Radiation. An article in The Ecologist, April 2001 issue begins by stating “the (radiation) equivalent of a nuclear war has already happened”. This may not be an exaggeration. The article carefully details that 1900 nuclear tests, accidents and nuclear waste dumping have exposed everyone on the planet to the equivalent of 1000 Hiroshima bombs.
The article reveals details of previously classified accidents including one in Greenland in 1968. A B-52 crashed at a secret nuclear base and its cargo of four nuclear bombs detonated, sending up a cloud of plutonium 25,000 feet into the air. According to US documents, 1250 nuclear weapons have been involved in accidents, a number of which “resulted in or created the potential for plutonium dispersal”. The Soviet Union was notorious for its cavalier attitude about nuclear accidents. A 1991 film documents the poisoning of hundreds of thousands as a result of accidents at their first plutonium factory at Chelyabinsk in the Ural mountains.
Using the official ‘radiation risk’ estimates published in 1991 by the International Commission on Radiological Protection, planetwide contamination will cause 175 million cancer deaths and another 350 million non-fatal cancers. It will also cause another 235 million illnesses and 588 million children to be born with birth defects such as brain damage, mental disability, spina bifida and childhood cancers.
Depleted uranium, a waste product which every nation that has atomic weapons has in abundance, is another source of radiation exposure. To get rid of it, it is often made into ammunition that was used in the Gulf War, Bosnia and Kosovo. Leukemia rates have increased in these areas since its use. Another hidden source of radiation are the fluoride compounds added to many municipal water supplies. Hydrofluosilicic acid, the source of most fluoride for water supplies, is a smokestack waste produce that contains radioactive particles and heavy metals along with fluoride. Other sources are medical and dental x-rays, medical waste that may contain radioactive materials, CAT and other scans, smoke alarms and proximity to food irradiation facilities.
Radiation is carried on mineral particles. The minerals lodge in the cells where they disrupt DNA synthesis. This causes defective protein synthesis resulting in innumerable subtle metabolic dysfunctions. As the defective proteins replicate, the metabolic errors also multiplied. Ozone trans dermal therapy promotes rapid turnover of body cells. Ozone kills damaged cells which cell membranes are already compromised and do not have the same enzyme protection as a normal cells. Eliminating the radiation-containing cells helps the body eliminate radioactive particles faster and prevents replication of these cells. Over a period of time, ozone sauna therapy can dramatically reduce the amount of mutated DNA and radioactive material in the body. One need to continue ozone sauna use on a maintenance basis because exposure to radiation continues throughout one’s life.
Oxygen supplementation during ozone hyperthermic therapy
Oxygen displaces deadly free radicals, neutralizes environmental toxins, and destroys anaerobic (depleted of oxygen) bacteria, parasites, microbes and viruses. Oxygen greatly enhances the body’s absorption of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, and other important nutrients. Oxygen enhances brain-power and memory. Oxygen can beneficially affect your learning ability. The ability to think, feel and act is all dependent on oxygen. It also calms the mind and stabilizes the nervous system. Oxygen heightens concentration and alertness. Without oxygen, brain cells die and deteriorate quickly. As we age, and oxygen deficiency increases, it takes longer to learn, and your retention span is decreased.
We can live for weeks without food. We can even live for days without water. But we can only live for minutes without oxygen. Oxygen strengthens the heart.
Increased oxygen lowers the resting heart rate and strengthens the contraction of the cardiac muscle. Virtually all heart attacks can be attributed to a failure to deliver oxygen to the heart muscle. Dr. Richard Lippman, renowned researcher states that a lack of oxygen (hypoxia) is the prime cause of 1.5 million heart attacks each year. Research studies show that mild hypoxia increases the heart and respiratory rates; however, prolonged or severe hypoxia results in lung or heart failure.
Tight binding oxygen structure causes lack of oxygen at cellular level Oxygen treatments provide a safe, highly effective method for the recovery of oxygen to all body systems. The effects are cumulative. The body begins to work more efficiently as it restores the oxygen balance closer to the higher
natural range it was originally designed to function with. It helps reverse the physical and psychological effects of oxygen deprivation from poor health – air pollution – water pollution – food pollution – aging. Maintaining proper oxygen levels in the body is a vital ingredient to health, vitality, physical stamina and endurance. You must have a means of replenishing your oxygen level. Researchers, scientists, molecular biologists, nutritional specialists, and others have reported health benefits from increased oxygen uptake. World-class professional athletes, universities, renowned fitness trainers, coaches, and “average” citizens have also reported experiencing many of these benefits.

How long do toxins stay in your body?
An entire lifetime! Toxins can stay in your system anywhere from several hours to a lifetime, depending on the type and amount of toxin ingested, coupled with your rate of metabolism and general health.
Did you Know?
The fluids in your body constantly pass through the liver and kidneys. They process every nutrient from the digestive tract and also play a major role in recycling. It chemically modifies toxins and wastes so that the body can reuse them. They then route them to the bladder for disposal. Both the liver and the kidneys do a tremendous amount of work and need nutritional support.
The kidneys work around the clock, acting as the main filter. It filters about a quart of fluid every minute. Their job is to recycle some substances and return them to the body and to eliminate harmful toxins and metabolic wastes in the urine. The kidneys are so important to your overall health, and work so hard, that they consume 20-25% of all the oxygen your body uses.
The Liver is the most complex organ in the human body. It has important roles in detoxification, hormonal balance, fat regulation, digestion and circulation. It is like the main chemical mill in your body, performing over 500 different chemical functions. Compounds are broken down, synthesized, altered, burned, detoxified and excreted. Our livers metabolize the nutrients proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It turns toxic materials into non-toxic substances for expulsion. The liver manufactures and secrets bile in order to absorb fat-soluble nutrients and eliminate toxic substances purifies the blood, filters bacteria, endotoxins, antibodies-antigens and other. Our livers act as blood banks for 20 to 30% of your body’s blood,manufacturing blood clotting agents and blood proteins, metabolizing and storing hormones, and even controlling triglycerides, cholesterol, other blood fats, and body fat levels. Would you think in this industries times it is wise to let your kidneys and liver process toxins, chemicals and heavy metals that should have been effectively excreted threw your skin ………?
False Information On Ozone
Recently the FDA, and other such organizations have been trying to destroy the beneficial and life sustaining qualities of ozone by telling the public that ozone is toxic and harms the body. For example, ozone has been blamed for smog. Carbon monoxide, a deadly poison, is present in smog at about 3000 parts per hundred million. Toxic hydrocarbons are present in smog at about 100 parts per hundred million. Ozone is present in smog only briefly at around 25 parts per hundred million. Ozone has a half life of about 20 minutes. Ozone in smog is produced by the effect of the sun’s energetic photons acting on polluting gases. Single molecules of oxygen are broken off these gases momentarily, but in seconds it reattaches itself to the other gases, which is part of nature’s system for cleaning the atmosphere. The problem is not one of too much ozone in smog, but not enough ozone in the smog . If sufficient amounts existed, the pollutants would all be oxidized and rendered harmless. Carbon monoxide is a proven killer…Ozone is a proven health enhancer……
Ozone was discovered by Schonbein in 1840 and has been used to purify water and treat patients for more than 160 years. Some major cities in Europe have used ozone to purify the municipal water supply since the turn of the century. The Los Angeles municipal water treatment facility uses ozone, and is the largest in the world. Most swimming pools in Europe use ozone rather than chlorine (Chlorine gas is a WMD) to purify water. It has been known for at least 100 years that ozone is highly germicidal inthat it will almost instantly kill virtually all viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, molds, cancer, etc. It is known to oxidize just about all manmade chemicals.
