Medical Ozone Therapy

Ozone is an amazing element that has the power to detoxify the body by breaking down toxins and heavy metals. Ozone also helps to build new and healthy cells, tissues, organs and ultimately healthy body systems. By doing the above Ozone helps the body to restore to an optimal health status resulting in overall wellness and quality of life.

Ozone is an amazing element that has the power to detoxify the body by breaking down toxins and heavy metals. Ozone also helps to build new and healthy cells, tissues, organs and ultimately healthy body systems. By doing the above Ozone helps the body to restore to an optimal health status resulting in overall wellness and quality of life.

Research and investigation of medical administration of ozone therapy, over more than a 100 years, has shown that virtually no pathogen (virus, bacteria, fungus and parasite) or abnormal and diseased body cells are resistant to treatment by ozone. Ozone also helps relieve pain and inflammation.

Chemically, ozone is oxygen (O2) with an extra molecule added (O3). Electrically, ozone is oxygen with a higher energy level, making it unstable and highly reactive.

Oxygen moves and changes in a cycle, just as there is a cycle of water. Oxygen is released during photosynthesis by land plants (such as shrubs, flowers and trees) and ocean phytoplankton (mostly unicellular diatoms), which rises up in the atmosphere, about 25-30 miles. At this atmospheric level the oxygen is energized by a part of the ultraviolet spectrum of energy from the sun, and this leads to ozone production. Because Ozone is heavier than air it begins to descend. Ozone immediately attaches itself to airborne particles if it contacts them, oxidizing them, and thus cleaning the air. If it encounters water vapor, Ozone can attach itself to it, forming hydrogen peroxide. Through natural processes, both rain and snow contain hydrogen peroxide. This is why plants grow better from rainwater than from irrigation as it contains the added hydrogen peroxide element and benefits the plant.

At ground level, ozone attaches itself to all pollutants, oxidizing them and cleaning the air, Ozone has incorrectly been blamed for contributing to smog levels. Ozone is present in smog only transiently at around 25 parts per hundred million.

The ozone that exists in the atmosphere is produced by nature and it is attracted to pollutants because of opposite charge - it attempts to oxidize them and clean the air. The problem lies in there being too little ozone to complete the job and counteract smog, not too much.

Ozone is also created near the ground by lightning. The fresh smell in the air after a thunderstorm is ozone that has formed during the element interaction.

Ozone therapy is free from any side effects and has been found to be an extremely safe medical therapy. In a 1980 study done by the German Medical Society for Ozone Therapy, 644 therapists were polled regarding their 384,775 patients, comprising a total of 5,579,238 ozone treatments administered. From this massive test group there were only 40 cases that noted any side effects, which represents the incredibly low rate of .000007%. Ozone has thus proven to be the safest medical therapy ever devised.

Ozone therapy targets the root cause of most modern day diseases and conditions, because it is a powerful therapeutic tool for curing disease, but it is equally important for prevention of disease. The hundreds of different diseases named by science and medical based practice are but symptoms of one underlying cause. That root cause, as proven by two-time Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg, is hypoxia, or oxygen starvation at the cellular level. Hypoxia is the cause of degenerative disease (such as arthritis, atherosclerosis, multiple sclerosis, rheumatism, cancer, etc.). Ozone both treats and prevents most contagious diseases too (mumps, measles, influenza, cholera, tropical fevers, etc.).

The human body is 2/3 water, of which 90% is lymph and 10% is blood. In order to gain energy the cell has to burn the sugar in the oxygen, and formed waste products arecarbon dioxide and water. If there is insufficient oxygen at the cellular level, the burn process will be incomplete, and different substances of carbon monoxide and lactic acid will be formed. The body cannot easily rid itself of monoxide; which prevents hemoglobin from picking up fresh oxygen, and the body temperature is lowered. The lactic acid will build up in the system, clogging the nerve pathways, eventually calcifying and causing degeneration. More oxygen is required to come in and oxidize these toxins, but if it is not available, they build up leading to further problems. The blood will carry a heavy load of sludge, and toxins will be deposited in the fat which can lead to cellulite and other externally visible conditions. The water that composes the body gets dirtier and dirtier and ultimately results in disease. This is where ozone therapy shines - in eliminating toxicity from the body. Ozone taken on a daily basis will, over time, clean all the fluid of the body, safely resulting in optimal wellness and an improved quality of life.

  • Ozone inactivates viruses,
  • bacteria,
  • yeast,
  • fungus and protozoa;
  • stimulates the immune system,
  • cleans arteries and veins,
  • improves circulation,
  • purifies the blood and lymph,
  • normalizes hormone and enzyme production,
  • reduces inflammation,
  • reduces pain,
  • calms the nerves,
  • stops bleeding,
  • prevents shock,
  • prevents stroke damage,

  • improves brain function and memory,
  • oxidizes toxins allowing their excretion,
  • chelates heavy metals;
  • prevents and reverses degenerative diseases,
  • prevents and treats communicable diseases,
  • prevents and eliminates auto-immune diseases.

Inactivation of pathogens occurs as follows:

  1. Bacteria: Ozone disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell envelope through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins.
  2. Fungi: Ozone inhibits cell growth at certain stages preventing the fungi from growing and causing problems.
  3. Viruses: Ozone damages the viral capsid and interupts the reproductive cycle by disrupting the virus-to-cell contact with peroxidation. The weak enzyme coatings on cells, which make them vulnerable to invasion by viruses, make them susceptible to oxidation and elimination from the body, which then replaces them with healthy cells.

In circulatory disease, there occurs a clumping of red blood cells which hinders optimal blood flow through the small capillaries and decreases oxygen absorption due to reduced surface area. Ozone has the ability to reduce, or eliminate, clumping, and red cell flexibility is restored, along with its oxygen carrying ability. Oxygenation of the tissues increases as the arterial partial pressure increases and thickness of the blood decreases. Ozone also oxidizes the plaque in arteries, unclogging the blood vessels.

Ozone causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate. This leads to the stimulation of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG), which leads to an increase in the amount of oxygen released to the tissues. There is a stimulation of the production of the enzymes which act as free radical scavengers and cell wall protectors: glutathione peroxidase, catalase, and superoxide dismutase. Ozone activates the Krebs cycle by enhancing oxidative carboxylation of pyruvate, stimulating production of ATP. Ozone also causes a significant reduction in NADH and helps to oxidize cyochrome C. Prostacyline, a vasodilator, is also induced by ozone.

Ozone has the capacity to form hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) when it reacts with the unsaturated fatty acids of the lipid layer in cellular membranes. There is a synergistic effect with cellular- formed H2O2. Lipid peroxidation products include alkoxyl and peroxyl radicals, singlet oxygen, ozonides, carbonides, carbonyls, alkanes and alkenes.

Ozone oxidizes the outer lipid layer of malignant cells and destroys them through cell break-down. Phagocytes produce hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl to kill bacteria and viruses. The generation of hydroxyl by killer cells is critical to their cytotoxic capability. Ozone stimulates conversion of L- arginine to citrulline, nitrite and nitrate by phagocytes, acting on tumors.
