What is Medical Ozone therapy and how does it work?

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 return to optimal health, thus resulting in overall wellness and quality of life. 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, wellbeing 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.

Research and investigation of medical administration of ozone therapy, over more than one-hundred 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 twenty-five to thirty 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.

How safe is Ozone therapy?

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 forty 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.

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 the waste products, carbon dioxide and water are formed. 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. In water purification it is used to disinfect the water, remove algae, oxidize iron and manganese and remove colour and odour.

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 transdermal 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 inactivates viruses, bacteria, yeasts, fungus and protozoa
  • stimulates the immune system,
  • improves blood circulation,
  • purifies the blood and lymph,
  • normalizes hormone and enzyme production,
  • reduces inflammation,
  • reduces pain,
  • improves brain function and memory,
  • oxidizes toxins allowing their excretion,
  • Chelates heavy metals
  • Eliminates fluid retention
  • Speeds up recovery time from injuries
  • Aids with Weight Loss

Slimming & Weight Loss

Ozone therapy also assists in weight loss. During a 30-40 minute session in the Ozone tent the body burns up  500 to 750 calories.

Toxins are stored in the body’s fat reserves. When the body is de-toxified as a combined result of the sweating inside the ozone tent and the additional de-toxification that takes place, the body no longer requires extraneous fat. As a result you are more likely to remain slim.
