Ozone is composed of 3 oxygen molecules. The air we breathe is composed of 2 oxygen molecules. The extra oxygen molecule makes ozone a “supercharged” oxygen and gives ozone it’s capability to do some amazing things for your body. Medical grade ozone is safe and quite effective.
The use of ozone to treat medical disorders was first established in Germany in the 1950’s. It is now a common modality in Europe and it’s use is growing in the USA. Ozone Therapy should only be administered by properly trained medical professionals.
Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system. It can calm down an overactive immune system–i.e. in autoimmune disorders. It can also stimulate an under active immune system i.e. with chronic infections, cancer, etc. It does what your body needs.
Ozone has the ability to cause white blood cells to produce cytokines–immune related messengers. Ozone also stimulates DPG (diphosphoglycerate enzyme) which enables hemoglobin to release oxygen to the cells. This increases the body’s oxygen utilization. Diabetics commonly have a low amount of DPG. Ozone enhances your blood flow and improves circulation. Ozone also increases anti-oxidant protection. This is especially helpful for those with chronic disease.
Ozone is a powerful stimulant of mitochondria–the energy producers inside each cell of your body. Decreased mitochondrial energy production is a key cause of degenerative diseases–from diabetes to heart disease to cancer to autoimmune diseases.
Ozone administration into the blood is the most common and effective way ozone is administered systemically. You sit comfortably in a chair and 6 to 12 ounces of blood is removed by IV into a sterile iv bag. Ozone is then injected into the bag by the RN and the ozone is gently mixed with the blood. The ozonated blood is then returned to the body.
The entire IV procedure takes about 30 to 40 minutes. Ozone can also be administered rectally or vaginally-this is a good systemic alternative for patients with gut disorders or who can’t tolerate IVs. If you have one or two specific points of pain, ozone can even be directly injected into these areas. This is called Prolozone.
The use of medical grade IV blood ozone on a monthly basis is a great anti-aging tool when combined with healthy lifestyle changes and hormonal balancing. To treat specific disorders and diseases, a more frequent schedule is required and is determined individually.
