Ozone therapy is a unique form of therapy that both heals and detoxifies at the same time. It is used to treat a variety of acute and chronic disease including joint pain and injuries, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, chronic hepatitis, herpes/shingles, chronic fatigue states, chemical sensitivity, macular degeneration, chronic bladder conditions, colitis, auto-immune diseases, and Crohn’s disease.
What is Ozone?
The oxygen you breathe is present in the air as a pair of oxygen atoms. This is the most stable form of oxygen, and it’s colorless. Ozone is a blue colored form of oxygen (it’s what makes the sky blue), and unlike regular oxygen, it is composed of three oxygen atoms (O3 ) instead of two. It is the addition of the third oxygen atom that makes ozone “supercharged” oxygen, and gives it all of its remarkable medical properties.
The use of ozone to treat various medical conditions was first developed in Germany in the early 1950’s. Today, medical ozone therapy is common throughout Europe, and its use has gradually been spreading in America over the last 25 years.
Ozone is Toxic, Isn’t It?
Anything, including water and oxygen, is toxic if given in amounts that exceed the body’s capacity to utilize it. Ozone is found naturally in the body. The white cells make it as part of the immune response. Pure medical grade ozone, when it is used according to the established medical guidelines, has a safety record that is unparalleled.
Medical Properties of Ozone
Ozone has five properties that account for why it works so well not only for macular degeneration, but also for most other chronic age-related conditions as well:
- Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system.
- Ozone stimulates increased uptake of oxygen which enables the release of oxygen from the hemoglobin molecule so that it can be taken up into the cell.
- Ozone improves circulation.
- Ozone increases antioxidant protection more than any other therapy.
- Ozone is a powerful mitochondrial stimulant, thus, improving energy production.
How is Ozone Used Medically?
Regenerative injection therapy with ozone (Prolozone) and autohemotherapy (ozonating the blood) are the most common and, in most cases, the most effective way ozone is administered. It can be used to insufflate the bladder, rectum, vagina and ears when indicated for local concerns. It is also widely used in the dental field to address abscesses, cavitation and gingivitis. Topical applications of ozonated oils is also commonly used to address acne, wounds, scars and rashes.
ls Ozone Therapy For Me?
This is a decision for a doctor who is trained and experienced in the medical use of ozone. Some conditions simply will not clear up unless ozone is used, and of course many conditions will clear up without ozone. Because of its many therapeutic properties, ozone can be used as part of a therapeutic plan for almost every disease.
It is invaluable in the treatment of heart disease and circulatory disorders. Chronic infections such as hepatitis-C, herpes, Lyme, and AIDS respond very favorably to ozone. It is also very helpful in chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune diseases.
It is important to realize that ozone therapy is not a panacea or some kind of magic bullet. Although it is often an indispensable modality, it is only rarely effective by itself. In the great majority of cases it must be combined with an individualized program of other alternative and natural therapies, such as nutrition and detoxification.
