What Is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone gas (O3) discovered in the mid-19th century is a colorless and odorless gas containing three atoms of oxygen. The oxygen used for clinical use is a medical grade, given in precise therapeutic doses and never through inhalation. IV ozone therapy has been well-documented and used to treat chronic infections, wounds, Lyme Disease, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, ulcerative colitis, lupus, and as many as one-hundred and fourteen diseases! In the 1800's, Nikola Tesla patented the very first ozone gas generator in the United States, eventually starting the "Tesla Ozone Company". During World War I, physicians administered ozone treatment to wounds topically for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities and were later able to disinfect drinking water to be applied as a spray or compress in dental medicine.
How Ozone Therapy Works
As the ozone purifies the air we breathe, it also functions as a detoxifier for our bodies by selectively attaching and removing bacteria, fungi, parasites, mold, yeast, and virus. Ozone therapy may also assist our bodies in getting rid of toxic metals. Very impressive for something we take for granted everyday.
Ozone therapy boosts the production of cancer-fighting compounds and strengthens various parts of the immune system that are suppressed by chronic infection and cancer. Ozone therapy helps stop the growth of human cancer cells from breast, lung, and uterus by 40-90%. Even better, ozone therapy selectively destroys cancer cells without causing damage to healthy cells!
More than forty-five thousand physicians in over fifty countries around the world have combined ozone gas (O3) with medical grade oxygen (O2) to effectively treat patients with Lyme disease, ulcerative colitis, fibromyalgia, diabetic ulcers, rheumatoid arthritis, HPV, and Hepatitis B and C. This is not even half the list of what ozone therapy can do for your health!
When used as preventive care, ozone may help protect you from illness and also strengthen your body's natural defenses. Words spoken by Benjamin Franklin, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," isn't far from the truth. Preventing disease is a lot easier than treating it. However, in the fast-paced world we inhabit today, we are exposed to a large amount of chemicals. These chemicals can not only be in the food we eat or the water we drink, but even in the air we breathe. The human body is largely composed of oxygen, an element we commonly neglect to consider when it comes to having better overall health. According to Dr. Otto Warburg, "Cancer is, fundamentally, a relatively simple disease where cell oxygen levels fall to a level sufficiently low enough for the cell to change in nature". The decline of health and the rise of disease in the U.S. can be directly associated with the increase in toxins and reduced levels of fresh oxygen. With our hectic lifestyles, breathing in the low levels of oxygen and increased toxic fumes in the air further compromises our immune systems and leads to disease.
Ozone therapy can help stimulate the immune system and can also relax the part of the immune system that leads to autoimmune disease. The body's immune system produces unique messengers called "cytokines" as an activation response with ozone therapy. These cytokines, tell other immune cells to trigger a cascade of potent changes throughout the immune system to resist disease. Administration of ozone therapy is useful as preventative medicine because it both activates the immune system in individuals with a low immunity (cancer, chronic illness) or acts as a regulator of the immune system in patients with an overactive immunity (autoimmune disease).
Benefits of IV Ozone Therapy
1. Autoimmune Disease
Ozone therapy's numerous therapeutic qualities have been used to help treat numerous conditions, including autoimmune disease.
In a study of individuals with diabetes, ozone therapy improved controlled blood sugar levels, significant improvement of lesions without side effects, and less amputations than the controlled group. In patients with various other autoimmune diseases such as ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis. lupus, and Lyme disease, ozone therapy can help in reducing inflammation, accelerate damaged tissue recovery and reduce pain
In the body, ozone gas is converted to hydrogen peroxide and hydrogen peroxide probably is the key component for the therapeutic effects. It is a strong oxidant that has the potential to create antioxidants which are useful in preventing cancer. In studies, hydrogen peroxide has been used to cause death of cancer cells. Since healthy cells can not survive under a stressful environment for extended time periods, ozone therapy boosts antioxidant enzymes to cause death of cancer cells but supports survival of healthy cells.
Now, you understand the many benefits of ozone therapy and how it functions, but, you might be asking yourself, "Is ozone therapy safe?". The answer is "Ozone therapy is safe when done properly". Ozone therapy has been utilized and studied extensively for centuries, with its effects being proven to be risk-free with minimal adverse effects. Under strict supervision of an expert, ozone therapy will not just help in preventing and treating numerous conditions but can be an effective boost to your overall health and well-being!
