Ozone Therapy Explained
Oxygen is the single most important nutrient for the body and your wellness. The body can survive weeks without food, days without water, but only minutes without oxygen. Every cell of the body requires a continuous supply to generate energy, detoxify the body and maintain healthy cells. Any reduction in the availability of oxygen to the body, whether by poor posture and breathing, deoxygenated water and refined foods, smoking, lack of exercise, environmental pollution or exposure to carbon monoxide, reduces the optimal performance of these essential cellular functions.
As a lack of sufficient oxygen is a major cause of poor health, leading to conditions such as arthritis, low immunity, constant tiredness, cancer, regular colds and flu’s, hay fever, migraine, low vitality etc, when the body is flooded with an activated form of oxygen, namely ozone, people consistently report that these conditions as well as their general health, well-being and energy levels dramatically improve.
Ozone (O3) is activated oxygen (O2), and in a short period of time the O3 molecule will revert back to oxygen. During this short half life cycle, the O3 molecule can therefore be utilized for sanitation and sterilization purposes. Ozone inactivates viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungus and protozoa.
Ozone is second only to fluorine as an oxidant and has been used in medical and naturopathic medicine since the 1870’s. Because of its short half life and its tremendous oxidizing capabilities, it can be used in situations where residual chemicals are undesirable.
Ozone will work 3000 times quicker and is 2.5 times stronger than chlorine.
In water purification it is used to disinfect the water, remove algae, oxidize iron and manganese and remove color and odor.
In 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 will also prevent cross contamination of airborne diseases such as flu or tuberculosis.
In the Medical field ozone therapy machines (specifically ozone capsules / ozone therapy cabinets / ozone saunas) are used to purify and oxygenate blood through trans-dermal ozone therapy to compliment normal procedures, to improve the immune system, in cancer treatment, diabetes and for treating wounds, ulcers and skin ailments. Ozone sauna therapy is also effective for maintaining normal health and wellness.
Ozone Therapy for Improved Treatment
Oxygen deficit is key to the development and progression of all disease processes. Dr. Otto Warburg’s work, confirmed by others, shows that this deficit and subsequent toxin buildup is the fundamental cause of all degenerative disease, especially cancers. Antioxidants help the body to protect itself from excessive oxidative damage caused by multiple free radicals, many of which are inactivated by ozone. The support of free radical scavenging systems is important but only oxygen can improve the deficit that makes cells vulnerable to oxidative damage in the first place. Long-term ozone therapy can be augmented by supplementation with antioxidants, but normally they should not be administered within 4 to 12 hours of ozone therapies. Ozone produces the same effects as exercise, which produces significantly more free radical oxygen than can be administered in any ozone treatment. Ozone equals ”exercise in a syringe” without doing joint damage. Ozone potentiates more complete oxidation, helps to maintain more normal body temperature and increases the effects of most hormones, vitamins, herbs, homeopathics, and drugs. Concurrent ozone therapy administration reduces the amount of chemotherapeutic drugs needed to achieve effect by ¼ to ¾. It complements chelation therapies and frequently improves the affect and sense of well being in patients.
