The Benefits Of Ozone
If you’ve spent any amount of time on this website, hopefully we’ve done our job of explaining how ozone works. But here’s a refresher: the third oxygen atom in ozone molecules, when correctly administered, has the ability to bond with your body’s cells and essentially modify the way they work. It’s not a drug that forces something to happen in your body. Instead, it works with your body’s natural functions to:
- improve oxygen efficiency,
- regulate the immune system,
- optimize blood circulation
- encourage the body’s natural detoxification ability.
But here’s the thing: ozone is only beneficial if used correctly. There are a host of studies and research to demonstrate the efficacy of ozone therapy for the body, but there is an unfortunate lack of conclusive research on ozone saunas in particular. That being said, there is a great amount of anecdotal evidence that they work. Proponents of ozone saunas say that when the ozone is absorbed through the skin, it has as much potential to address diseases and ailments as does IV or rectal ozone.
But the trouble with anecdotes is that they can be neither proven nor disproved. Even the clinics that offer ozone steam sauna therapy will say that the results completely vary for each individual. For that reason, we aren’t able to definitively say “ozone saunas work” or “ozone saunas don’t work”. But what we can do is compare claims with science.
