Ozone therapy is growing in popularity around the world.

Those who have used ozone with steam, saunas, water and with other methods have reported a wide range of benefits to their health. It is growing in popularity because it's natural and can be used in a number of ways by practically anybody.

What exactly is ozone?

Ozone (O3) is the combination of two oxygen molecules (O2) with another singlet oxygen molecule. That extra molecule breaks loose after a short period of time and attaches itself to weak and damaged cells, destroying viruses and pathogens so they can be easily eliminated from the body. It can increase the flexibility of red blood cells, allowing oxygen levels to stay elevated longer, and accelerates the TCA cycle, which is important in the glycolysis of carbs for energy. The antioxidant enzyme system becomes more efficient and helps break down petrochemicals.

A lot of illnesses and other problems exist in low oxygen environments, things like fungi, viruses, yeasts and bacteria. These toxins die and are more readily detoxed when exposed to high oxygen environments that ozone can create.

Are there side effects?

Ozone has been studied in several countries and found to be very safe. In a German Medical Society study from 1980, over 600 therapists were polld about their 384,775 patients (around 5,579,238 treatments), and there were only 40 cases of side effects noted and four deaths. That's a rate of only .000007%.  That's one of the safest percentages available.

How has Ozone Therapy been used?

Ozone has been used medically since the early 1900s. It was legal for use by medical professionals in the US until the medical establishment banned it in favor of far more profitable synthetic petrochemical drugs. It is still used by naturopathic doctors and ozone treatments are legally used in Italy, Russia, Germany, Malaysia, Cuba, Mexico and more. It is widely used for water purification in the US and for surface disinfection and waste water treatment. It's also used for air purification.

Ozone has been found to be an extremely safe medical therapy, free from side effects. 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. There were only 40 cases of side effects noted out of this number which represents the incredibly low rate of .000007%, and only four fatalities.

Ozone has thus proven to be one of the safest medical therapies available. As many of you may be aware, many ailments that human beings suffer from take root in a low oxygen environment. For example fungus, yeasts, viruses and many bacteria are anaerobic and can only live in a low oxygen environment. If these life forms are exposed to a high oxygen environment, they simply die and can be removed and detoxified from the body via the skin (sweat), liver or kidneys.

This explains why people suffer from complaints such as fungus and yeast infections at their extremities where the blood supply is restricted, or where conditions are damp and humid much of the time. Cancer is usually a viral problem which is reportedly out of control throughout the world. Most doctors in Western countries are only treating cancer, NOT curing. Because of the medical laws, we are not allowed to promote cures, but we can offer people reliable treatments that might have positive effects. If done consistently, ozone therapy can reverse most any microorganism problem.

Using Ozone in Medical Therapies

Ozone therapy is one of the most powerful and versatile therapies known today. Extensive medical research on ozone therapy has been done primarily in Europe. Through its mechanism of action, ozone has beneficial effects on every part of the body. The effects include:

  1. Inactivation of bacteria, viruses and fungi: Ozone disrupts the integrity of damaged cell envelopes through per-oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins. In fungi, ozone inhibits cell growth at certain stages. With viruses, the ozone damages the viral capsid and disrupts the reproductive cycle by interrupting the virus-to-cell contact with per-oxidation. Cells previously infected by viruses are more susceptible to destruction by the peroxide produced through ozonolysis, because they have weak enzyme coatings.
  2. Enhancement of circulation: In circulatory disease, a clumping of red blood cells hinders blood flow and decreases oxygen absorption due to reduced surface area. There is a decrease in red blood cell flexibility which prevents them traveling down the tiniest capillaries, and blood viscosity increases. With ozone therapy, clumping is reduced or eliminated and flexibility is restored, along with oxygen carrying ability. Oxygenation of the tissues increases as the arterial partial pressure increases, and viscosity decreases. Ozone also oxidizes the plaque in arteries allowing the removal of the breakdown products, unclogging vessels.
  3. Stimulation of oxygen metabolism: Ozone causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate. This leads to the stimulation of 2.3-diphosphoglycerate which shifts the oxy-hemoglobin disassociation curve to the right. This leads to an increase in the amount of oxygen released to the surrounding 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 decarboxylation of pyruvate, stimulating production of ATP. Ozone also causes a significant reduction in HADH and helps oxidize cytochromes.
  4. Dissolution of malignant tumors: Malignant cells have an increased rate of glycolysis which leads to the production of more lactate. With ozone therapy, there is a significant decrease in lactate production, showing that the metabolism is being inhibited. Tumor cells have a peroxide intolerance due to insufficient peroxidase and catalase. Ozone is thus able to oxidize the outer lipid layer of malignant cells and destroy them through cell lysis.
  5. Activation of the Immune system: Ozone stimulates the production of interferon and interleukin in the body. From this there is a cascade of subsequent immunological reactions.
  6. Formation of peroxides: Ozone reacts with the unsaturated fatty acids of the lipid layer in celllular membranes, forming hydro peroxides. Lipid peroxidation products include peroxyl radicals, vital for killer cell action.

Oxygen plays a vital role in maintaining health in the body. Oxygen and sugar are the primary nutrients that each cell requires to generate energy for all its life functions. These functions include the transport of molecules, synthesis of all chemical compounds and mechanical work such as muscle contraction. Thousands of these reactions are occuring at all times. These reactions are what allow the heart to pump blood, the immune system to fight infection, the gastrointestinal tract to digest food, and the nervous system to process information.

Oxygen is also an important structural component of the organic compounds used by the body as essential nutrients, such as vitamins and fatty acids. Oxygen has an important role in removing waste products from the system. As people age, their bodies extract oxygen and transport it to the cells less efficiently. The cumulative effect of this lack of oxygenation is a decrease in the flow of vital nutrients to the tissue, the impairment of the thousands of chemical reactions necessary and the subsequent appearance of deficiency diseases. Thus an abundance of oxygen creates health and well being and a deficiency of oxygen contributes to illness.
