Letter from a Breast Cancer Patient

9 June 2017

Dear Trisch and Louisa 

I am so excited to let you know how the Ozone Pod and your caring therapy has helped to literally shrink the beast cancer that I was diagnosed with in December 2016.

In a daze of diagnosis shock,  Trisch you took me into your amazingly understanding arms and gave me hope. The one thing any cancer patient is in short supply of. 

You comforted me and reminded me that this was never going to be 'my cancer', this is just a very unwelcome visitor to my body, and that with Ozone treatment,  this visitor was being shown the door. 

It has been 5 months of regular Ozone pod treatments and lots of positive encouragement from all at the Ozone Pod and I am happy to say; this Breast cancer mass is shrinking by the day, the lump feels at least 70% smaller and the 'orange peel' look on the skin has all but disappeared - in 5 months!  Talk about results! 

I want to thank you and the team at 'The Ozone Pod' in Fourways for every treatment, every word of encouragement, love and hope that I enjoy every time I pop in for my treatment. 

It seems like a miracle is busy happening in my body and I feel so much more energetic,  even immediately after the first treatment, I could feel the difference.  It gives me more energy and fires me up to fight this unwelcome intruder. I look forward to each treatment because I know this is 'the good stuff' that is my support system in beating what was initially a 'diagnosis of absolute despair'. 

How lucky and priveledged am I to have the benefit of Ozone treatment and the dedication of such a commited team on my side - the winning side! I do not have enough words to thank you! But here goes : thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul. 

All my very best wishes.

Hello Podders!

Welcome to the New Year! May it be abundant with good health!

I’m sure you’ve all eaten too much, partied too much, had too much fun in the sun after the summer Christmas holidays right?

And I also bet that your poor body is feeling sluggish and you’ve not enjoyed your first week back at the office.  You’re yawning at 3pm, by 7pm you find yourself wishing for bedtime and when it’s time to get up at 6am you hit the snooze button on the alarm a good few times before dragging yourself out of bed.  Repeat.  Right?

Be kind to yourself.  It’s not just the Summer Holidays that have hurt you…. It’s also all the chemicals we subject our bodies to… the pollutants in the air we breathe, the skin products we use, the chemicals in the products we clean our homes, our clothes, our cars with… the list is endless.  It is estimated there are over 80,000 hazadous chemicals we are exposed to nowadays.

Well, we have a solution at The Ozone Pod.  Five simple ways to DETOX your body so that you can feel more energetic and get rid of those nasty nunu’s that are stopping you from jumping head first into the New Year with vigour and passion!

So, let’s get to it.
  1. Get your head right.
    By that I don’t mean, turn it to the right, I mean, work through what you are expecting from your detox and how you are going to manage it.  Tell your family and your co-workers what your intentions are and ask for their support.  Ask them to help you up when you feel you are not staying on track.  Ask them not to tempt you with foods and drinks you are choosing to stop partaking in.
  2. Ozonate Your Body
    Doing a 30 minute ozone pod session each day for 3 days is one of the best ways to detox. Ozone eliminates toxins such as fungus, bacteria, viruses, parasites and heavy metals.It is estimated that the average person hosts more than 700 toxins in their bodies at any given time.
  1. Get your diet in shape.
    Stay away from sugars and carbohydrates.  Pile up with fresh (organic if possible) veggies and fruit and limit your protein intake of red meat.  Keeping your blood sugar levels constant will help prevent mood swings and hormonal imbalances, so eat small frequent meals. 
  1. Drink water and fermented drinks.
    It goes without saying – drink water!  We also advocate that you drink fermented teas such as Kombucha which has made a huge name in the market and is easy to make at home these days.  Fermented drinks are loaded with organic acids, potassium, enzymes and probiotics – all super ways to keep your digestive system cleansed.
  1. Get good quality sleep.
    It’s not the quantity of sleep, it’s the quality!  Switch off TV’s, cellphones and other devices an hour before bedtime.  Take a long relaxing bath to which you have added a handful of Epsom Salts and, while you’re in the bath, brush your body with an organic loofah.  Add a couple of drops of lavender or chamomile essential oils to the warm water for extra pampering.
Cleansing and re-loving your body is essential to your health and wellbeing and should be undertaken regularly.

When you’re ready to start your DETOX PROGRAMME, contact Trisch at 0114654514 and make an appointment.  We will tailor your programme to suit your individual needs.

Our September 2016 Newsletter

Interviewing Trisch about how The Pod started.

The Pod Ozone & Wellness Centre Celebrates!

Dear Patient

It's Jules here, PR person for The Ozone Pod.  Can you believe it's already been one year since we first opened our doors?  It took us by surprise too, but as we sat reflecting we realised how far we’ve come.

Since Day 1 we have increased our health focused offerings to our patients by complementing our Ozone Therapy treatment sessions with specialised Autohemotherapy treatments* (Dr Mitch is in attendance weekly to administer), as well as Live Blood Analysis (LBA), Reiki, Aromatherapy and Lymph Drainage.  In addition we supply a large variety of supplements, homeopathic tinctures and Ozone products such as gel, soaps and the Soul Source oil range.

* We follow the Issels (R) Immuno-Oncology protocol for Autohemotherapy (click here to read more).

Over the past year we have assisted patients with varying illnesses and obtained remarkable results – for frequent updates and feedback follow us on Facebook or visit our website (links below).

We are so proud of our Luisa de Sousa, now an accredited Ozone Practitioner.

Congratulations Luisa, and we wish you much success.


Trisch & Peter Share Their Pod Story

So who is Trisch Rosema (and Peter of course), and what led to the start of The Ozone Pod franchises?

Q : Trisch, what was the defining moment that led to your decision to open a Holistic Wellness Centre?
A: Peter, my husband, had spent two years in hospital with doctors treating his symptoms and never exploring the cause of his illness.  Numerous neuro-surgeries later, we were no closer to finding a cure. We were introduced to the miracle of ozone treatment and, along with a change in nutrition, I realised the value of how healing and energizing oxygenated blood is.  However, ozone therapy in South Africa seemed to be a quackery as most of the so-called ‘therapists’ had no formal training and research showed me that this could have an adverse effect on a patient.  Additionally, most of the allopathic doctors my husband was consulting with at the time had no interest in looking at him in an holistic sense, that is, looking at all facets of his ‘self’ so I felt it vitally important to heal himself by himself (if that makes sense!).
I have always had an interest in working in the ‘healing’ space, yet never had the opportunity to study medicine.  When living overseas, I completed a course in Aromatology – the ‘science’ of blending essential oils.  This piqued my interest in natural health.

Q : Where were you introduced to the benefits of Ozone Therapy?
A: I met a young lady who had been diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer.  Her doctors had told her she had a couple of months to live.  She purchased an ozone steam sauna cabinet and lived nearly three years past her ‘diagnosed demise’.  During those three years she had more energy than I had seen in some of the fittest people and she always said it was because she was doing ozone.  By the way, she passed away in a car accident... not from the cancer.
When my husband was ill, I started researching ozone and watched many testimonials on YouTube and health websites. There were never any negative testimonials.  Of course there were many nay-sayers writing articles on the web, but I chose to look at ozone with an open mind.  I mean, how can enriched oxygen be bad for you?!   I then met with the local manufacturers (OzoneTime in SA) of these saunas and decided to purchase one for home use for Peter.  I was trained by “Prof Gresse” – a man of great ozone knowledge in SA – on the correct protocol to use.  Within 10 sessions, Peter was feeling much better and was having more good days than bad and before long he was back riding his Harley!  At that time I was also in limbo – I had given up a corporate job and was looking to change direction in my life.  Not finding a wellness centre that could assist people from an integrative medical sense near me was encouragement enough for me to start planning my own.

Q: What is Ozone Therapy (in brief), and what benefits does it provide?
A: There are different applications of ozone therapy which we offer at The Ozone Pod.  One is hyperthermia therapy where the patient sits in a ozone steam sauna cabinet (which we affectionately call the pod) and we also offer direct limb ozone application (or bagging) and the creme-de-la-creme, autohemotherapy.
  • Ozone strengthens the immune system so that the body can fight off diseases arising from viruses, bacteria and fungi. 
  • Ozone used as a preventative treatment helps to resist degenerative diseases such as diabetes, arthritis and heart disease.
  • What Ozone therapy does for you:-
  • Inactivates viruses; oxidizes bacteria, parasites, yeast, fungi
  • Stimulates the immune system, delivering faster healing
  • Cleansing of arteries and veins, improved circulation
  • Purifies the blood and the lymph drainage
  • Oxidizes toxins in preparation for excretion
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Reduces pain, calm nerve endings
  • Stimulates protective cell enzyme production
Q : What do you envisage for The Ozone Pod in the next two to five years? 
A: We have already opened a “podlet’ in Kathu in the Northern Cape and hope to be opening a Pod Wellness Centre on the East Rand in 2017.  There have been many enquiries from people from as wide-spread as Bapsfontein to Bloemfontein, all wanting to open Ozone Pods… but we are being very selective as this is no get-rich-quick scheme.  It is intended to deliver the opportunity for health and healing for those who have given up hope, as well as for people who want to keep their bodies in optimal condition.  We have many sportsmen using ozone for quick muscle recovery, as well as people using therapy to assist them in their slimming regimes.  Not to forget the benefits of more youthful-looking glowing skin!  Ozone treatment is a fantastic way to detoxify one’s body and is a great re-energizer.
Also, by adding Live Blood Analysis (LBA) screening to our offerings recently we’re now able to provide concrete evidence that parasites, bacteria and viruses can be eliminated from the body through ozone therapy because LBA provides an accurate view of toxicity through homeopathic channels. 

Ozone Practitioners Association of South AfricaTrisch initiated “The Ozone Practitioners Association” in an effort to regulate the industry through training and accreditation of Ozone Practitioners.
At present she is in negotiations with a medical aid scheme in an endeavour to introduce ozone therapy treatments onto their list of scheme approved and certified treatment options.

Finally, a little bit about Trisch that perhaps you didn’t know. Trisch is an artistic, creative soul, loves pairing a glass of good red wine with chocolate, she is a Harley-Davidson enthusiast, world traveller, proud mother to four sons (and two cats and one koi) and is herself a cancer survivor.  Trisch also wrote and self-published her first book
Kaleidoscope  - a scream a minute and a great read for South Africans!

Parasites are not just bugs - they're killers

I just read Dr Keith Scott-Mumby’s document on Parasites… and it scared me six ways from Sunday!

Having recently introduced Live Blood Analysis to our ozone practice, one of the things we’ve been concerned about is the number of parasitic infections we have seen in our patient’s bloodwork and so this article has prompted me to share some information about these nasties with you.

Where do they come from?

Parasites have killed more humans than all the wars in history” (Season 1, Episode 1, The Body Snatchers, National Geographic).  They are hostile to humans.  They are found in everything humans require to live – air, food and water.
Too often we don’t realise we have a parasitic infection.  Why would we?  We wash our hands, we bathe, we eat cooked food?  The Myth is that parasites only infect dirty people.  The Truth is, that doorknob you just opened, the salad just prepared at your favourite restaurant and washed under the municipal water tap, the fresh carrot straight out of the ground you munched at the market?  All could potentially be carrying parasites.  It takes just ONE egg to infect you.
Our pets too carry parasites which are transmitted through simple actions like petting them and then unthinkingly touching our mouths.
Our children play in sandpits, often eating the sand.  It’s a breeding ground for parasites.

What will a parasitic infection do to me?

Horrible, indescribable things!  In truth, if not detected and treated, parasites have been reported to kill over 100,000 people worldwide each year.  The World Health Organization reported that over 3.5 billion people worldwide are infected with some type of parasite.
Parasites can cause itching, diarrhoea, blindness, paralysis, insomnia, hyperactivity in children.  The list goes on. 

Here’s an example. 

One fish tapeworm (yes, tapeworms are parasites) can grow to 10m.  And they will lay eggs.  In your intestines.  Thousands of eggs.  And those tapeworms will grow until eventually you could have them hanging out of your anus.  Disgusting?  True!

The picture on the right shows a tapeworm removed during surgery.

The good news is …. There is help!

Recognising that your fatigue, sleeplessness, weight loss problems etc could be due to a parasitic infection is the first step to your good health.
Since there are over 3,000 different types of parasites (and each with its own life cycle and pattern) one needs to first understand that the parasite is a creature which depends on its host for survival.  It leeches vitamins and nutrients from our bodies to keep itself alive.  The parasite invades a bodily structure, inflicting damage to that structure (i.e. the liver) which oftentimes causes the degeneration of that organ, sadly sometimes irrevocably.
Treatment, therefore, while generalized and effective, should be streamlined specifically to the parasite in question.  For this, further laboratory testing would be required.

3 steps to being parasite-free
Get the DiagnosisDo a Live Blood Analysis test (book with Luisa on 0114654514). Eliminate the ParasitesEmbark on a course of anti-parasitic treatment which includes tinctures, ozone therapy and dietary changes.
3.       Repeat steps 1 and 2 with friends and family.
We are talking contagion here.  The yo-yo back-and-forth passing the love doesn’t work with parasites and humans.  Get everyone to get rid of them.

Remember : If your immune system is functioning at optimum levels, you can keep these parasites at bay. 

Take charge of your good health today!

So you think compost is only for gardens?

Finally!  Fulvic Acid is getting the recognition it deserves!  And we have the best here at The Pod.  It’s in powder form and tastes delicious.  
So what is it then?

Actually, it's sort of like compost...

Fulvic Acid typically is extracted from humic deposits.  These are very rare and were created from ancient lush vegetation through microbial activity over hundreds and thousands of years.
It contains a great number of naturally occurring bioactive substances which include super-charged antioxidants.  Which is why, using it daily while undergoing ozone therapy, is of huge benefit.  Fulvic acid also includes free-radical scavengers, powerful detoxifying enzymes, hormones, amino acids, along with natural antibiotics, antivirals and fungicides.  It is considered one of nature’s best immune boosters.
Tests have shown that consumption of fulvic acid reduces the incidence of digestive disorders such as SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and inflammatory bowel disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  It also helps with reducing constipation, bloating, diarrhea, and food sensitivities.
In a 2011 study published in the “Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease”, it was reported that Fulvic Acid’s combination of antioxidant and neutraceutical properties could potentially protect against diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Fulvic Acid can be used topically to treat wounds, itches and rashes.  It is also been used to treat athlete’s foot.
There are many other health benefits to taking Fulvic Acid.  As it is a natural chelator, it binds easily to nutrients, minerals and metals enabling our bodies to readily absorb the nutrients. 
Another fantastic benefit is that Fulvic Acid restores the body’s optimal pH levels by alkalizing the body and preventing an overly acidic environment.  Disease thrives in acidic environments, so using Fulvic Acid can prevent diseases and improve our defences against harmful bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi and other infectious organisms.
People taking Fulvic Acid have also reported a noticeable improvement in their energy levels, which is likely due to better detoxification as well as reduced inflammation and free radical damage.

While Fulvic acid is a naturally occurring organic product and completely non-toxic, we advise that you should always consult a qualified health care professional before taking any supplements to ensure that they don’t interfere with any other ongoing treatments or medications.

Identify your Hidden Imbalances

Do you really KNOW why you’re always tired, hungry, bloated, sneezing, etc?

FACT : Our bodies CANNOT sustain healthy cells with an unnatural diet and lifestyle.

FACT : We see visual PROOF of this during a live blood analysis screening test.

We care about your health.  You know that.  That’s why we offered OZONE THERAPY to you in the first place – one of the most natural ways to give your body a fighting chance.  In fact, our bodies constantly strive to heal themselves.  Because that is exactly what we are meant to do.  Heal ourselves.  Naturally.

All too often we see patients who turn to pills from the over-the-counter section of their local pharmacy to heal anything from a slight cold to IBS to more serious infections.  Or they fill up on antibiotics from their local GP because that’s what they think the solution is to their specific problem.  They’re looking for quick fixes.

But sometimes, all it takes is a slight shift of focus in their lifestyles.  Like a small change in diet and the correct supplementation…


“But I buy THE BEST!”  they exclaim.  They probably are the best supplements, but what the patient is taking is not necessarily what their body requires.  Oftentimes all the money they’re spending on their supplements and vitamins are ending up being flushed down the loo.

At The Pod we want to make sure that your body runs at optimal levels, and that is why, along with Ozone Therapy, we have implemented and been trained on screening your blood through Live Blood Analysis – with you watching what we do!

Analysis of live, unmodified capillary blood has been around for many years, pioneered by independent researchers, mostly focusing only on the nutritional aspects of blood morphologies.  Others, however, approached it from different angles, but one thing was proven by all – that the human body cannot live with an unnatural diet and lifestyle.


By analysing your live blood under a microscope – and projecting it in real time onto a screen for you to follow, we can determine a number of imbalances and health concerns.  This test will show how your lifestyle impacts on your health, thus allowing you to make necessary changes.

From this, we will be able to assist you with the correct homeopathic remedies, dietary changes, supplements and vitamin interventions which would be appropriate for adjusting your lifestyle towards optImizing your health and preventing the onset of disease.  Furthermore, the effectiveness of various treatment combinations can be tested and progress can be monitored as the insights we gain from the analysis and other clinical data will help us to understand your individual state of health on a much deeper level.

And you don’t have to experience your blood being drawn from a vein,  then sent off to a laboratory where it spends hours in a test-tube filled with anti-coagulants waiting in line to be tested – at a very high cost to both you and your medical aid.  By the time it is tested, the blood has been stained and is essentially dead whereas in Live Blood Analysis, we use whole, unaltered blood which is viewed within seconds of a small finger prick under high magnification.  This allows us to assess the condition of your blood cells, plasma, and also check for microbial activity and anomalies that are not typically ordered by your local GP when doing conventional blood tests.

So Live Blood Analysis should become an essential part of a preventative approach to your personal healthcare.


In conjunction with live blood analysis we also do a layered dried blood analysis (or, The Oxidative Stress Test) - at the same appointment.  This test uncovers many valuable clues as to which parts of the body are holding toxins and therefore at risk of degenerative disease.  Along with the Live Blood Analysis findings, we can piece together the areas in the body that are under stress and require attention.  Again, we will suggest the correct changes to your lifestyle to assist you enjoying better health.


This is a very important question!  Remember, this test is not a diagnostic procedure and if we see anything remotely disturbing, we will refer you to your doctor for other tests.  We do not diagnose conditions or diseases.

The test lasts approximately an hour.  Call to make your appointment now – 0114654514.

Please note that this test is not a diagnostic procedure for any specific disease.  It is a tool meant to demonstrate how dietary and lifestyle habits may be influencing your personal health.

Minor Autohemotherapy can be a life saver

There is (always) huge hype around adjunct, alternate or complementary therapies – especially when they work!  

One can trawl the internet and find many testimonials from people who have been cured of diseases from diabetes to cancer through anything from eating papaya pips to drinking hydrogen peroxide.

At The Ozone Pod, we have seen amazing results with our patients undergoing minor Autohemotherapy (mAHT) treatment.  

In fact, one of our patients with Stage III lung cancer who refused chemotherapy and other conventional treatments, and who was given a very poor prognosis at the time of diagnosis, has been called a ‘medical miracle’ by the doctor who gave him the bad news in February 2016.  This patient is being treated by us with, amongst other protocols, mAHT infused with Ozone.  His scans two weeks ago showed impressive healing - the results of our team-work with him.  Not only has the cancer growth been stopped, but his lung function is so good, the intern at the hospital he went to told him to ‘carry on doing whatever it is you are doing’.

So he is coming back next week for continued treatment with us.

What is Autohemotherapy?

Autohemotherapy is the immediate intramuscular, or subcutaneous reinjection of freshly drawn autologous blood.  Autologous blood means we use the patients own blood as opposed to allogenic blood - that which is received from a donor (as used in blood transfusions).

An effective way to administer mAHT is with the addition of Ozone.  

The ozone fragments most virions without regard to preserving cellular elements.  Once injected intramuscularly, the treated blood carries these fragments of viral envelope and nuleic acids through the general circulation of the body and into the immune network.  If the immune network is relatively operational, it begins to manufacture appropriate antibodies which in turn, serve to counter the evolution of any infection.

The benefit of using this technique is that the antibodies which are manufactured, are individualized to the patient since they are derived from their own viral or bacterial stock.  mAHT can thus be conceptualized as a method of auto-vaccination, providing a high degree of antibody specificity.

In patients who have been ill for a long time, the first line of defence has most often been weakened.  Ozone mAHT specifically stimulates the body’s second line of defence which is so important in autoimmune diseases and long-term chronic illnesses.  It has the ability to reactivate the body’s natural killer cells.

How Is It Administered?

It is a quick procedure where a small amount of blood is taken from the patient’s vein.  It is then enriched in another syringe containing ozone.  This enriched blood is then injected into the patient’s gluteal muscle, or sometimes under the patient’s skin.

Minor Autohemotherapy has proven itself to be of great value as a non-specific immune-activator with benefits in any condition where increased immune activity is desired.

The treatment process lasts about 10 minutes and can be carried out three or more times per week, dependent on the patient’s condition.

During June 2016, we have Dr Mitch holding an mAHT Clinic at The Ozone Pod.  Make your appointments now by calling us on 011 465 4514
