Problems, Safety & Dangers of an Ozone Sauna

Ozone saunas, also known as ozone steam saunas, involve exposing the body to a mixture of ozone and steam in an enclosed environment. While of course we love them as well we wouldn’t sell them otherwise, it’s important for you before investing in an ozone sauna to know all the issues.

Without further ado, here are some problems and considerations:

  1. Too Much Ozone – Ozone, a form of oxygen with three oxygen atoms (O3), can be harmful when inhaled in high concentrations. Excessive exposure to ozone may cause respiratory issues, irritation of the eyes and throat, and other health problems. It’s crucial to ensure that the concentration of ozone in the sauna is within safe limits.

 

  1. Local Regulations – Ozone saunas may not be regulated or approved by health authorities in some regions.

 

  1. Made in China – Though you can buy great Chinese products, you can also very easily buy dangerous Chinese products and it is no different when it comes to an ozone sauna. With huge variations in equipment quality, ozone concentration levels, and safety features. Be careful where you are buying from, as a lot of the build quality is hidden and sometimes you don’t know what you are buying until it’s too late..

 

  1. Individual Sensitivity: Some people, like everything in life, may react differently to ozone exposure, and some individuals may be more sensitive or allergic to ozone. Before using an ozone sauna, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional, especially if you have pre-existing respiratory conditions or other health concerns.

 

  1. Skin Irritation: Ozone exposure can potentially lead to skin irritation. The combination of steam and ozone may cause dryness, redness, or other skin issues in some individuals. It’s essential to monitor your skin’s response and discontinue use if any adverse reactions occur.

 

  1. Equipment Maintenance: Ozone saunas require proper maintenance to ensure safe and effective operation. Regular checks and maintenance of the equipment are essential to prevent malfunctions that could lead to increased ozone exposure or other safety issues. This is not plug and play and forget! Treat it like you would a care, which needs checking to make sure everything is working fine.

 

  1. Dehydration: The combination of high temperatures and steam in ozone saunas can contribute to dehydration. It’s important to stay hydrated before, during, and after the session to prevent adverse effects on the body.

 

Is Ozone Safe?

Depends! Like anything the dose makes the poison! If you were to inhale large amounts of ozone, then of course you would have side effects, which is for this reason we have your head out of the ozone sauna, and we gradually increase the level of ozone gradually until your body is used to it.

In large quantities ozone can be harmful to your eyes and respiratory system, again hence why your head is out!

It’s worth noting there are quite literally thousands of medical research papers on the safe use of ozone therapy from doctors and researcher all over the world for many decades now.

 

The Chinese Question

However besides ozone safety as a chemical itself, we also have to consider the safety of the individual ozone sauna and how it was made. Having been in business of supplying anti-aging and longevity devices for almost 20 years now, I have seen over the years the huge rise of Chinese manufactured products. Both great Chinese devices and horrific Chinese devices.

However, due to the difference in cultures they don’t seem to value human life as highly as we do in the UK. Which means a lot of Chinese businesses have no issues cutting corners if it means making more money. They don’t seem to understand that boosting short term profits, means you hurt your customers and ironically put yourself out of business eventually.

So both the quality and therefore the resultant treatment you get is reduced massively and the risk to human life and safety is also significantly reduced.
