Benefits of Ozone Therapy
Clinical experience has shown ozone therapy may be used for a number of conditions and issues. Benefits of ozone therapy include:
- Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, and fungi
- Enhancement of circulation
- Stimulation of enzymatic activity and oxygen metabolism
- Acceleration of glycolysis in red blood cells
- Increase of tissue oxygenation
- Increasing the release of O2 from hemoglobin in the blood to tissue
- Enhancement of formation of acetyl CoA (vital for detoxification)
- Increase of red blood cell pliability, blood fluidity, and arterial pO2
- Stimulation of the reticuloendothelial systems, thus rebuilding tissue
- Activation of the enzymes involved in peroxide or free radical destruction
- Disruption of the lipid cell membranes of anaerobic pathogens and weak or defective cells
How Ozone Therapy Works
Ozone, referred to as O3, is a molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms. Because ozone is a relatively unstable molecule and will not last very long, it breaks down into more stable oxygen molecules. In biological systems, including the human body, ozone instantaneously interacts with double bonds found in amino acids and lipids to form peroxides.
These peroxides can easily penetrate cell membranes and increase oxygenation of intracellular compounds (NADH and FADH2) involved with energy production. In addition, ozone therapy stimulates the uptake of oxygen by stimulating the DPG enzyme, which supports the release of oxygen from hemoglobin molecules so it can be used by the cell.
When cells get the optimal amount of oxygen, they function properly and help to prevent or inhibit disease.
Ozone has the following actions:
- Antiseptic / disinfectant
- Bactericide / virucide / fungicide / parasiticide / parasiticide
- Hemostat (assists with bleeding)
- Analgesic (pain relief)
- Circulatory stimulant
- Wound cleansing/wound healing agent
Ozone performs these functions through ionization, subatomic exchange (oxidation), electron/free radical reactions, and electromagnetic reactions resulting in profuse photon and energy transfer.
More simply, because ozone is an oxygen molecule without an electron, it is attracted to electron-rich microorganisms. After it strips away the organisms’ electrons, the cause of the disease dies. Healthy human cells are not affected because they produce antioxidants making them impervious to ozone.
The most common method of ozone administration is intravenously (major autohemotherapy, minor autohemotherapy, or direct intra-arterial or intravenous injection), but may also be administered through:
- Intramuscular injection
- Intra-articular injections
- Specific tissue injections
- Local application to external body surfaces (transparent Teflon bags)
- Rectal insufflation
- Vaginal insufflation
Ozone injections are administered for just about every joint in our bodies, including elbows (tennis elbow), knees and hips, shoulders (rotator cuffs), ankles and fingers (arthritis), wrists (carpal tunnel), and essentially all cartilage and tendons found in the body.
Ozone therapy through intravenous administration is utilized through a machine, where blood is taken intravenously and passed through the specialized machine that infuses ozone into the blood at any given amount.
