Oxygen is the single most important nutrient for the body and your wellness!

Those wanting to improve their vitality, energy levels and overall wellbeing. Athletes seeking improved performance and quicker recovery. Individuals with compromised health.

The body can survive weeks without food, days without water, but only minutes without oxygen. Every cell of the body requires a continuous supply of oxygen in order to generate energy, detoxify the body and maintain healthy cells.  Any reduction in the availability of oxygen to the body reduces the optimal performance of these essential cellular functions.   Lack of sufficient oxygen is a major contributor to poor health and conditions such as arthritis, low immunity, constant tiredness, cancer, regular colds and flu, hay fever, migraine, low vitality etc, so when the body is flooded with an activated form of oxygen, namely ozone, these conditions as well as general health, wellbeing and energy levels improve dramatically. 

The following deprives the body of adequate levels of oxygen:

Stress

Smoking

Poor posture and breathing

Parasitic infection

Environmental pollution

Lack of exercise

Dietary & Lifestyle factors which affect the PH balance of the blood and intracellular fluids making these acidic (refined foods, sugar, alcohol, improper food combining, deep fried and processed foods)

Ozone is a powerful therapy that assists the body to heal itself by destroying viruses, bacteria, fungi and other pathogens while at the same time increasing cellular oxygenation and stimulating the immune function.  Our cells thrive in an oxygen rich environment where most undesirable micro-organisms thrive in the absence of oxygen (anaerobic), therefore Ozone is toxic to most undesirable micro-organisms and to unhealthy, damaged and dying cells while supercharging our healthy cells. 

Ozone is activated Oxygen ie oxygen with a higher energy level and it is a natural part of nature!  That wonderful fresh smell after a thunderstorm, the refreshing fragrance in the air of ocean waves and waterfalls, and the smell of sunlight on the snow…..that is the smell of ozone, a gas produced by nature during these natural circumstances. Ozone gives you the feeling of being cleansed and that is precisely what it does.  It cleanses the atmosphere when nature produces it and when we are exposed to it, it cleanses our bodies in a similar way.  

Ozone (O), like oxygen, is a gas and likes to travel in pairs (O2).  When a third atom of oxygen binds, the O2 becomes O3 making it unstable and as a result it needs to give that extra atom away. This singlet oxygen O1 atom is a highly reactive free radical that acts as a scavenger of other free radicals. This good oxygen free radical reacts with other bad free radicals, rendering them harmless, thereby protecting the body’s cells from damage.  Also, any cell that comes into contact with O3 will take the third atom, resulting in the oxygen’s traditional properties become more powerful and more energized.

Because ozone operates at the body’s foundational level ie the body’s cells, it is effective at fighting many afflictions.   Being an extremely powerful and fast-acting oxidizing agent, it is one of the best killers of harmful, pathogenic organisms eg Ozone takes only 10 seconds to kill 99% of bacteria, fungi, yeast, mould, and viruses, which is 3,500 times faster than chlorine.    

The following are the benefits of Ozone:

  • Stimulates your immune cells(white blood cells) into action to fight viruses, bacteria and cancer, and to give you protection from future infections. It also increases the number of these cells in your body.
  • Oxidizes arterial plaqueand breaks down the plaque involved in both Arteriosclerosis and Atherosclerosis. It is a powerful stimulator of Nitric Oxide in your blood vessels, and it is nitric oxide which is the key to dilating your hardened blood vessels allowing more blood to flow to all your organs and cells – this is why people with severe heart problems can be often returned to normal health and vitality with ozone.
  • Destroys Viruses, Bacteria, Fungi(Candida) as they cannot resist the oxidizing power of ozone. They are destroyed on contact through a process known as cell lysis. Your normal cells are not harmed due to their antioxidant defence systems, which protect them from the powerful oxidizing effects of ozone – viruses, bacteria etc do not have such defences and are thus vulnerable to ozone.
  • Stimulates production of antioxidant enzymesdirectly thereby reducing oxidative stress inside your cells. This is very important for Anti-Aging as it keeps your cells strong and able to resist toxic damage.
  • Increases oxygen and haemoglobin disassociation, thus increasing the delivery of oxygen from the blood to the cells, tissues and organs.
  • Ozone is anti-neoplastic, which means that it inhibits the growth of new tissues like tumours. Cancers are anaerobic meaning that they don’t like oxygen. Ozone floods the blood and all body cells with life giving oxygen and starts to return to normal the previous abnormal function of cancer cells.
  • Oxidizes and degrades petrochemicals, therefore it acts to powerfully detox your entire body allowing you to feel energized with increased vitality. These chemicals have the potential to place a great burden on the immune system that is detrimental to your long-term health. They have been found to worsen and even cause allergies.
  • Increases red blood cell membrane dispensability, thus enhancing their flexibility and effectiveness which allows oxygen levels to stay elevated for days, or even weeks after treatment with ozone
  • Increases the production of interferon and Tumour Necrosis Factor, which the body uses to fight infections and cancers.
  • Increases the efficiency of the anti-oxidant enzyme system, which scavenges excess free radicals in the body.
  • Increases tissue oxygenation, thus eliminating degenerative diseases and bringing health and vitality to the body. It improves the function of every cell and every organ in the body.

The benefits of heat and steam have been recognized for centuries. The use of saunas in Greece, Rome, Scandinavia, Egypt, India and Turkey is well documented, and goes back as far as the 30th century B.C. 

Steam increases the eliminative, detoxifying and cleansing capacity of the skin by stimulating the sweat glands and increasing blood circulation.  The skin is known as the third kidney as it is responsible for eliminating up to 30% of the body’s waste through perspiration.  The steam also slowly raises the body temperature to destroy bacteria and viruses by mimicking a fever.  Using steam together with ozone allows the steam to surround the body, opening the pores and allowing the ozone molecules into the bloodstream and body through the skin, bringing oxygen to the tissues for enhanced health and vitality The combination of the steam and ozone is a natural, effective way of bringing many health benefits to the body, with the primary benefits being detoxification and oxygenation of tissues, organs and cells, boosting the immune system and stimulating the release of anti-cancer substances from the white blood cells.

Although you will gain benefit from any number of sessions, due to a lifetime of accumulated damage and toxins, you ideally need multiple sessions to gain significant benefit.  The number of sessions depends on your health and the purpose of the treatments eg:

Initially:  Usually 10 consecutive sessions are recommended as a start.   

  • Healthy Individuals: 5 to 10 sessions, either 1, 2 or 3 times per week
  • Athletic performance: 1 session per day for 5 consecutive days or every other day
  • Unhealthy individuals: 2 – 4 sessions per week for up to 2 months
  • Chronically ill individuals: 3 – 4 sessions per week for up to 3 months

Maintenance Program: depending on your health eg for longevity and general wellbeing, 1 or 2 treatments per week for 5 weeks, twice annually.

Note: To help treat disease, repeated exposures to ozone is necessary and therefore patience and perseverance is required to start seeing significant improvement.  Good dietary and lifestyle changes are also imperative for significant health improvement.     

Due to the increased heat rate as a result of the steam/heat:

-Pregnant or Breast Feeding Women: as it can in turn increase the foetus’ heart rate.

-Heart Condition.

-Active Alcoholics as they already have an increased heart rate.

 

If using the Far-infrared:

-People with a Pacemaker: the far infrared may interfere with the pacemaker.

-Due to increased absorption of medications:

-Chemo Therapy: wait 4 days after chemo as it increases the absorption of chemo.

 

Due to the blood thinning effect of the ozone treatment:

-People with an Active Bleeding site

-People who have had surgery in the last 2-3 months.

-People who have had a heart attack or stroke in the last three month.

-Haemophiliac.

-People with Thrombosis (could dislodge a clot).

It is beneficial to make sure that you have sufficient levels of iron, magnesium and calcium in your body as a lack of these minerals can lower the effectiveness of the sessions.

The DO’s:

Clothes:   Wear as little clothing as possible or nothing at all (maximizing absorption of ozone)

Bring your own towel (Covid requirements)

Duration: 20 to 30 minutes per session

Other: Preferably no large meal 1 hour before or after a session.

Keep hydrated before, during and after the session.

Don’t walk on a cold surface immediately after a session as it will reduce the efficacy of the ozone.

Wait at least 2 hours after a session before showering as it will remove the ozone from your skin and reduce the benefits.       

Lie down for about 20 minutes after a session ie gives the ozone a chance to circulate through the body, giving your organs more time to eliminate toxins.

Ozone promotes vitamin and mineral absorption.  Suggested supplements to be taken 1 hour after session Vit B Complex, C, E, A, Zine, Selenium, N-Acetyl-Cysteine and Copper.

The DON’TS for before a Session:

Vit C:   Vit C and Ozone neutralize each other, so do not drink any Vit C 1- 2 hours before or after a session ie for any negative reaction to ozone, drink orange juice to neutralize the ozone.

Prescription Medication: Do not take prescription medication 4-6 hours before a therapy session as the ozone therapy may render it useless or increase the absorption by 30% affecting the prescribed dose.

Alcohol:  Alcohol thins the blood and puts unnecessary strain on your liver and kidneys.  Wait at least 8 hours after your last drink before having a session and wait 4 hours before having your next drink.

The only known side effect of ozone is possible flu-like symptoms, headaches, sleepiness, fatigue and sometimes diarrhoea and even ear ache for a few hours or days after the treatment.  This is as a result of detoxification, known as the healing crisis ie dying pathogens release endotoxins from their cell walls and once these have been released from the body, symptoms will clear and the body left healthier.  The more frequent the sessions, the more severe the healing reactions.   Things to help cope include drinking a lot of water, Co-Q10, Multivitamins, flax seed, anti-oxidants and oral charcoal.

Way back, where fish was a major part of Native Americans’ diet, they noticed that after a storm, the fish would emit an unusual but pleasant odour, thus preferred fishing right after a storm.  In Greece they noticed the same, calling the odour “ozein”, they too preferred fishing after a storm.  The positive influence of ozone on the digestive system of different fish species is now scientifically documented.

You may be aware that a high “ozone count” is related to high levels of air pollution ie the amount of ozone in the atmosphere is directly associated to the level of air pollution, but ozone is not the pollution or the bad guy, it is natures solution to pollution ie it reduces the level of pollution in the air.   In fact without ozone, the pollution levels would be so great that our cities would be uninhabitable.  

Ozone has been used medically to disinfect and treat disease and purify water since its discovery over a century ago.  In 1896, Nikola Tesla patented the first ozone generator in the United States.  Ozone deactivates pathogenic microbes in the human body in much the same way it does in water, unsurprising since our bodies are made up of 70% water.

During WWI, physicians applied ozone topically to infected wounds because of its antibacterial properties. Later they discovered it had broader therapeutic applications, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.  In the late 1980s, German physicians began successfully treating HIV patients with ozone.

Ozone is a well-respected therapy in many parts of the world and has been used in medical and naturopathic medicine since the 1870s.  In Germany, it has been practiced for over 50 years and is the standard of care used by 70-80% of practicing physicians.  There are over 3,000 references in German medical literature referring to the use of medical ozone therapy.  

Transdermal Ozone therapy (specifically ozone capsules / ozone therapy cabinets / ozone saunas) is used to purify and oxygenate blood, to improve the immune system, support cancer treatment and diabetes, treat wounds, ulcers and skin ailments etc and is effective for maintaining normal health and wellness.

Ozone treatment is also used for:

  • -Water purification: it is used to disinfect the water, remove algae, oxidize iron and manganese, and remove colour and odour.
  • -Air treatment: it is used to eliminate odours, sterilise the air and ducting, and remove and neutralise pollutants such as cigarette smoke, carbon monoxide and noxious gases. It also prevents cross contamination of airborne diseases such as flu and tuberculosis.

Client Review 1:

I have always been an active and sporty person, and with this came a many sports injuries (some minor and some major) over the years. I dislocated both my knees in high school and suffered an injury that has caused continuous neck pain throughout the years. These injuries cause difficulties with my everyday life and I often go weeks without exercising because I am in so much pain. I have spent so much money trying to “fix myself up” but i never properly stick to the recovery program (I know… NOT smart).

I saw Brigitte twice for an Ozone Therapy session and I honestly can’t believe the benefits I immediately saw. The few days after my first session, a pain that I had in my neck for 2 weeks (not even stretching was getting rid of it) started to ease up and my knee pain got better. The day after my second session, both my neck and knee pain were gone. I went on a 5km run the next day, after not running since the end of March and I managed to do the entire run pain free. Usually after I run 5km, I cannot even walk up the stairs because my knee pain is so great, but now I’m ready for my next run and am looking forward to it. I still have a long way to go, but I will definitely be doing more Ozone Therapy sessions to assist with my recovery process.

Client Review 2:

I started ozone therapy at Willow Worx about a month and a half ago.
I suffer with Chronic Pain and muscle spasms from a MVA.
First of all the environment is so tranquil and beautiful, as well as the amazing Owners that immediately make you feel welcome and at home.

I felt heat at my injury sites, my energy levels increased.
The muscles in my diaphragm were in spasm because of shallow breathing. My diaphragm muscles are no longer in spasm. My skin has improved, as well as my cellulite.

I would recommend using ozone therapy to anyone struggling with their health
Thank You
