A Naturopathic Medicine
Ozone / Oxygen Therapy
Ozone is a naturopathic medicine and has been used in healthcare since the early 1800’s. Modern science is just revealing the vital role that ozone plays in our daily lives and scientific studies have reported that medical ozone is a safe and effective method of treatment.
Ozone is probably nature’s universal antidote for virtually anything that is wrong with the body. If you think of it, a man can live for weeks without food, a little shorter without water, but only minutes without oxygen.
So the one thing that is essential for life is oxygen. Ozone, of course, is oxygen to the third power. It can build immunity, detoxify, kill noxious organisms, and rejuvenate mitochondrial function. When properly applied by an expert practitioner, it can improve the health of the body and accelerate performance.
Here at Body Rejuvenate for our Ozone / Oxygen Therapy we believe in and use the HOCATT™ steam sauna, which provides a method of introducing ozone into the body via the skin. This is called transdermal ozone therapy. HOCATT™ stands for “Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Therapy” and the machine acts as a personal ozone steam sauna, in which patients sit with just their head exposed to the air, while their body receives the benefits of an infusion of ozone, carbon dioxide, steam, photon light and oxygen.
It works to restore the body’s natural balance in order for it to heal itself.
How it Works
The steam sauna heats up to a comfortable temperature and then carbon dioxide gas (carbonic acid) is infused into the sauna. After this, the carbon dioxide is removed and the sauna is infused with ozone gas. The heat and the carbon dioxide serve to open up the circulation to the skin so that when the ozone gas is infused it is absorbed by the skin into the general circulation.
As steam gently fills the sauna, the Photon infrared light penetrates the skin to help increase blood flow and circulation. Photon light breaks any painful inflammatory cycle by dilating small blood and lymphatic vessels. This increase in circulation can result in accelerated healing and pain relief.
The patient’s head is outside the ozone steam cabinet and they are inhaling pure oxygen throughout the 30-minute session. Delivered via a headset with a tube blowing into the nasal passages, this breath of “fresh air” helps to boost the immune system, reduce stress, boost energy and even fight off cancer.
The health benefits of having a session in the HOCATT™ ozone steam sauna are extensive. It increases circulation, promotes energy, naturally stimulates anti-oxidant enzyme production, improves absorption of nutrients, improves skin tone and helps relieve many chronic health problems.
