Ozone Therapy provides a wide range of health benefits.

People report a range of health benefits that is associated with the use of Ozone Therapy using steam, insufflation, drinking ozonated water, applying ozone topically with ozonated olive oil and other methods such as dentistry.  Because of the many available uses for ozone, ozone therapy is becoming increasingly popular for a wide variety of physical conditions.

Short History and Benefits of Ozone Therapy

Ozone has been used in medical treatment since the early 1900's. It was legally used by medical professionals in the USA until the 1920-30's when the medical establishment barred it use in favor of more profitable synthetic petrochemical drugs. Ozone continued to be used by natural doctors (Naturopathic Doctors - ND) up to the present time. Ozone medical treatments are used in most countries legally in Italy, Germany, Russia, Mexico, Malaysia, Cuba and more. Ozone is widely accepted and used for water purification (Los Angeles, Houston and many other cities currently use ozone for water purification) and is use for Wastewater treatment and surface disinfection. Other non-medical uses include mold abatement and air purification.

Ozone O3 is simply a high powered form of Oxygen O2. Ozone stimulates the production of white blood cells. Interferon levels are significantly increased. Ozone stimulates the production of Tumor Necrosis Factor. Ozone kills most bacteria at low concentrations. Ozone is effective against all types of fungi. Ozone is the best virucide as ozone goes after the viral particles directly. Ozone is antineoplastic. This means that ozone inhibits the growth of new tissue because rapidly dividing cells shift their priorities away from producing the enzymes needed to protect themselves from the ozone. Ozone oxidizes arterial plaque. It breaks down the plaque involved in both Arteriosclerosis and Atherosclerosis.

Ozone increases the flexibility and elasticity of red blood cells. When one views a red blood cell under a microscope, it looks like a disc. In the capillaries, where they pick-up (lungs) and release (tissue) oxygen, these discs stretch out into the shape of an oval or umbrella. This aids their passage through the tiny capillaries and makes the exchange of gas more efficient. The increase in flexibility of the RBC's allows oxygen levels to stay elevated for days, or even weeks after treatment with ozone.

Ozone accelerates the Citric Acid Cycle. Also known as the Kreb's Cycle or TCA Cycle, this is a very important step in the glycolysis of carbohydrate for energy. Ozone makes the anti-oxidant enzyme system more efficient. Cells respond to the beneficial oxidative stress by increasing their production of the protective enzymes. Ozone breaks down petrochemicals. These chemicals have a potential to place a great burden on the immune system. They also worsen and even cause allergies and are detrimental to your long-term health. Overall ozone has be used successfully to treat a large variety of conditions.

We are not implying that ozone is a cure for anything, all we are saying is ozone helps assist your body so your own bodies mechanisms can promote a healthier lifestyle. Nothing cures you except your body’s own natural defence and ozone, diet or any type of non-toxic treatment will help. Diet and exercise also play an important part of any treatment weather natural or conventional.

Using Ozone Therapy

To make Ozone (O3) the ozone generator needs to be fed with a pure oxygen (O2) source such as an oxygen concentrator (95%) or tank. A pure fed ozone generator increases the concentration of ozone compared to an atmospheric or ambient oxygen (20%)  fed ozone generator which will produce toxic and irritating by products such as nitrous and sulfur oxides.

Ozone Therapy is considered one of the most effective methods to treat a variety of conditions and is used legally worldwide. Ozone Therapy is not recognized nor approved by the US  FDA. Ozone Therapy also has little or no side effects. Remember, ozone is an oxygen compound, is non-toxic and life giving.  Without ozone the planet earth would not exist.
