The Sauna steam cabinet, however, is a pleasurable experience. Because of the moist heat, the pores are open, and the capillaries are dilated. The ozone enters and oxidizes toxins in the fat, the lymph and the blood. The skin is the largest organ of elimination. The person sweats the oxidized toxins back out, avoiding the dump of toxins to the liver and colon which can bring on the symptoms of toxic shock overload. Instead, the person emerges from the steam cabinet feeling extremely relaxed and mellow, and ready for bed. This an ideal way of counteracting e stress of the day.
Using ozonated steam in cabinets is currently being used around the world for integrative health by aestheticians, chiropractors, massage therapists, and other practitioners because they recognize this as a natural way to detoxify and cleanse the body. Ozonated steam stimulates circulation and increases the oxygen supply to every cell and organ in the body.
Transdermal ozone therapy is suggested as a good method of treating lymph system. The Transdermal technique has been recently developed to take advantage of the therapeutic possibilities using hyperthermia in conjunction with ozone therapy. The patient sits in an ozone-resistant steam cabinet, with the head out (See Photo], and the body is surrounded by warm steam. The steam causes pores to open fully and the ozone, introduced into the cabinet by silicon tubing from the generator output, can penetrate fully into all the tissue - the blood, the lymph and the fat. 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. Since the skin is the largest organ of elimination, themajority of the toxins are sweated out, sparing the liver and kidneys extra work.
Hyperthermia itself is a very effective technique, many thousands of years old. lt results in a "false fever" reaction, which simulates the body's own defense mechanism. With the addition of ozone, the treatment becomes doubly powerful. As the toxins are oxidized, and eliminated from the body, the fat containing them is no longer needed, and also leaves. Weight loss of 30, 50 and even 80 lbs over a period of months are reported. The skin becomes smooth, soft and free of blemishes. Symptoms of a whole host of diseases disappear as the toxins leave the system. Unlike other methods of ozone application, employing ozone in a steam sauna will induce the ‘healing crisis‘, which feels like having the flu for a few days. It can be seen as a sign of beneficial healing.
