Ozone mainly interacts with blood components to produce its effects. It acts on RBC's and increases its glucose uptake. It stimulates RBC's metabolism and make them energetic. It makes their cell membrane more elastic and pliable which means improved circulation. It causes RBCS's to release more Oxygen at tissue level. It relaxes blood vessel cells, opening up small capillaries; further improving circulation. WBC's are stimulated to improve immunity. Ozone stimulates Anti-Oxidant enzymes in the body to fight effectively against oxidative stress. It kills all sorts of bacteria, viruses and fungi. It burns toxins and provide more Oxygen to cells. It rejuvenates the entire body.

Ozone is an activated, trivalent (three atoms) form of oxygen. Oxygen is O2 whereas ozone is O3. Over a period of 20-30 minutes, ozone breaks down into two atoms of regular oxygen - by giving up one atom of singlet oxygen leaving a single, reactive oxygen atom. Medical ozone is made when medical grade oxygen is electrically activated (using an ozone generator) to form ozone. Ozone is germicidal, bactericidal, and fungicidal. Oxygen has these properties too, but less strongly. Ozone was discovered by Fridereich Schonbein and was described in a letter written in 1826 ("The Use of Ozone in Medicine" 3rd English Edition, page 22). It has been used in medical and naturopathic medicine since the 1870's.

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.
