A form of alternative medicinal treatment, ozone therapy is very promising with its multitude health benefits. The ozone gas is a form of Oxygen. But unlike oxygen or O2 that travels in pairs, Ozone is available when a third atom of oxygen binds with O2. This article aims at understanding ozone therapy and its healing properties. 

Ozone’s most amazing property is that it is an extremely potent oxidant and that is why it is used in treatments for antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, alkalizing, immune boosting and detoxifying effects.

Ozone is Toxic Or Is It?

Even though ozone is associated with pollution and has a bad reputation, without ozone the pollution levels would be so great that our cities would become uninhabitable. It’s ozone that protects us from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.

In Europe and Germany, Ozone has been used for 50 years by over 10,000 physicians and there are several research available on its overall effectiveness for treating chronic diseases like Diabetes, Cancer, Asthma, Arthritis, Digestive Issues, Skin Problems, Obesity, AIDS and more.

Understanding Ozone Therapy

Ozone is produced naturally in the atmosphere when the UV radiation splits an oxygen molecule into two oxygen atoms. Free Oxygen atoms react with oxygen molecules to form Ozone. The advent of modern technology has enabled us to produce ozone at will. This machine-made ozone is then used in medical applications as potential treatments for various ailments.

It can be used through subcutaneous injections to heal pain and inflammation in joints or muscles. It can also be administered intravenously with a saline solution or can be given using a localized blowing method with oxygen and ozone, or saunas with ozone vapor.

The Healing Effects of Ozone

In today’s world, we are often exposed to free radicals via pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, petrochemicals, plastics, vinyl off-gassing, heavy metals, radiation, etc. When ozone is induced into the body, ozone quickly becomes O2, releasing its extra oxygen atom along with a photoelectrical discharge.

This extra oxygen atom becomes available to bond with free radicals, helping to neutralize them so they can be more safely eliminated via the colon, liver, kidneys/bladder and skin through sweat. Ozone takes only 10 seconds to kill 99% bacteria, fungi, yeast, mold, and viruses – 3,500 times faster than chlorine. It is so effective at fighting off toxins because it works at the cellular level. 

Ozone therapy’s many healing mechanisms include:

  • Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa
  • Stimulation of oxygen metabolism
  • Activation of the immune system

Benefits of Ozone Therapy

Helps to Fight Cancer

According to a famous noble prize winning scientist Otto Warburg “ Cancer has only one prime cause. The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of body cells by an anaerobic (oxygen-less) cell respiration”.

When the cell is deprived of its normal supply of oxygen, it has no other choice but to opt for an alternate method of energy processing and begins to release energy anaerobically or in simple words – without oxygen.

Apart from this, the oxygen deficiency in the cells leads to a weakening of their cell walls, making them permeable for viruses, cancers, and other pathogens to attack.

And so, to rid the body of cancer we must flood our body with oxygen. Ozone therapy does exactly that! Also, Ozone only kills the pathogenic cells, unlike chemotherapy and radiation that kill healthy cells too.


Raises the Effectiveness of Anti-Oxidants

Ozone also stimulate antioxidant enzyme production to help detoxify the body of harmful toxic waste. Studies have shown just 7 to 10 ozone treatments can increase antioxidant enzyme production a whopping 300%. Those enzymes break down waste and toxins and optimize cell metabolism.

Build the Immune System Functions

They aid the formation of cytokine molecules that our immune systems use to control and eliminate infections and cancers. They also increase the delivery of oxygen to the cells, which is critical for lung conditions.


Increase Production of Nitric Oxide

Nitric oxide is well known for its effects on heart health. It helps to expand blood vessels, increase blood flow and decrease plaque and blood clots.


Ozone can be Used for Dental Applications

Aqueous ozone can be used as a powerful disinfectant to control bleeding, cleanse wounds in bones and soft tissues. It is also used to increase the local supply of oxygen to the wound area and to increase the metabolic processes related to wound healing as ozonated water can increase the temperature in the wound area.

Contra-Indications of Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy has no severe side effects. In fact, statistics indicate that in a survey of German Ozone Therapists 5,579,238 ozone treatments on 384,775 patients only 0.00007% reported minimal side effects.

One of the main side effects people having treatment or therapy can have is known as the Herxheimer reaction. This can make the individual have flu-like symptoms for a short-term.
However you should avoid ozone therapy if you are pregnant, have active bleeding, uncontrolled hyperthyroid,  thrombocytopenia, and ozone allergy. Ozone should also not be inhaled directly as it can irritate the lungs.

In Conclusion

Ozone therapy when used in adjunctive with a good nutritional program and healthy lifestyle choices can do wonders to treat chronic disorders and cancers. Consult with a practitioner to see how you can benefit from ozone therapy
