Ozone IV Therapy - What is Ozone?
What is Ozone?
Ozone is essentially just an Oxygen (O2) molecule, with an extra Oxygen molecule attached to it, forming O3. Now O3, or Ozone, as it is commonly referred to in the medical community, is a very powerful healing tool.
Ozone was discovered in 1900, and by 1940, was being used to kill germs and bacteria on instruments and wounds, sterilizing water, and on-the-fly dental surgery on the front lines of WW2. It wasn't until the 1950's, when Ozone Generators were invented, that allowed for very precise mixtures of Oxygen and Ozone. With Ozone Generators now helping to create more advances in the medical application of Ozone Therapy, we now have 134 different medical conditions and diseases with which Ozone can play a major role in improving. That is no small thing.
How Does Ozone Work?
Ozone produces small amounts of hydrogen peroxide and reacts with unsaturated fatty acids in the blood to form lipid hydroperoxides (AKA Ozonoids). This produces a phenomenon known as "Hormesis", allowing for the cells within the body to have a heightened protective and defensive processes. As well as other remarkably interesting healing effects to take place.
Here are a few of the benefits of Ozone Therapy (from a medical perspective):
Helps to prepare the body to handle stress factors with much more resilience.
Improves the natural defense system of the body, building immune health to battle infections, illness, and bacteria more easily.
When Ozone is added to the blood, red & white blood cells help the mitochondria produce more ATP (energy and life of the cell). Thus, helping to repair damage more quickly, remove pathogens and improve the functions of nerve cells.
Allows cells to release an increased amount of Oxygen carried by the hemoglobin to be released in the tissues.
Ozone helps to stimulate the genes that program the production of antioxidant enzymes.
Releases the growth factors to initiate the repair process in soft tissues, ligament injuries, joints, etc.
Stimulates white blood cells to make and release TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor- Basically a shorthand explanation of TNF, it is a protein in your body that causes inflammation and helps coordinate the process)- which the Immune System uses to eliminate abnormal cells and infections.
Yes, you read that last point correctly, sometimes inflammation within the body, is a good thing.
What Health Conditions Can Ozone Help Improve?
Here we are going to list a few of the different health conditions Ozone has been shown to improve. What you just read above was not a complete break-down of the benefits of Ozone Therapy. It would take too long to list everything Ozone has been discovered to aid in treating. So, here is a short list of the main conditions that are good candidates for Ozone Therapy:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Acute infections (ie. Covid-19, Influenza)
(Just to be clear, we are not saying that Ozone is a cure for Cancer.)
There are literally thousands of studies done on Ozone Therapy. Speak with one of our highly trained Medical Consultants or Nurse Practitioners, to learn more about specific case studies. You can speak with us using Facebook Messenger 24-hours a day HERE.
Benefits to Ozone Therapy
Ozone is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce the oxidative damage caused by chronic inflammation to your body and your DNA, mitigating the risk of disease. It’s also been found to increase the activity of antioxidant enzymes in the body, leading researchers in another 2014 paper to conclude that Ozone Therapy is a useful option for the treatment of chronic inflammation.
In short, this means pretty much every chronic inflammation disease can benefit from the use of Ozone Therapy.
Here are some benefits to Ozone Therapy:
Joint Mobility: A September 2018 study reported that therapeutic Ozone Therapy is “making strides” in the successful management and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. This is exciting news for sufferers of disorders like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and Bursitis. Studies have shown that people dealing with joint-related conditions respond well to Ozone Therapy as well.
Stem Cell Activation & Repair: Your stem cells work continuously to produce all types of cells, including for the heart, brain, blood, nerves, skin, or any other part of your body. Ozone may be able to help stem cells reactivate into new cells. New evidence suggests Ozone Therapy could improve this readiness to reactivate, thus leading to better cellular repair.
Skin Rejuvenation: It's only recently that Ozone Therapy has been used to help rejuvenate the skin, but it makes perfect sense. Skin cells need oxygen to stay in good condition. Ozone therapy increases oxygenation which can help cells rejuvenate. And because it has antioxidant and germicidal action, it can stimulate collagen and elastin as well as restore nerve circulation for cutaneous regeneration.
Pain Relief: If you have back pain, you know how debilitating it can be. It’s also one of the most common reasons people visit doctors and take time off from work. The good news is that researchers found that Ozone Therapy has the potential to be extremely beneficial for lower back pain. This is likely related to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Wound Healing: Ozone Therapy treats ulcerous wounds on the feet of diabetic patients, while another discovered it was equally effective in the care and reduction of painful mouth ulcers. The powerful healing effects of Ozone also aid in battling Herpes outbreaks.
Reversing Damage to Brain Tissue After a Stroke: When you have a stroke, the affected area of the brain begins to lose it’s crucial oxygen supply, causing hypoxia (an absence of enough oxygen in the tissues to sustain bodily functions) of the surrounding brain cells. This area of damage is known as the “penumbra.” To reduce damage, the best course of action is to restore oxygen to the penumbra as soon as possible. Supplying a mix of oxygen and Ozone gases to hypoxic brain tissue may reverse the damage, according to a 2012 study.
Lower the Risk of Repeat Heart Attacks: Ozone Therapy could reduce the risk of a repeat heart attack and the development of an infarction (tissue death due to lack of oxygen) or arrhythmia (an abnormal or irregular heartbeat) after a heart attack. A study in 2015 found that the sooner Ozone Therapy is given after a heart attack and the longer it is given, the better the results.
Ozone for medical application and use in the world of Western-Medicine has skyrocketed in recent years. Treatment for Chronic Diseases, Chronic Fatigue especially, Anti-Aging, and Immune Building, Ozone has quickly become the favorite choice for many new patients desiring a more natural and holistic route in treatment options.
Many people today are awakening to the reality of the many benefits Alternative Medicine provides Vs. Traditional Medicine. It is important to find the right physician who is experienced professionally & trained in the proper applications of Ozone Therapy. This means being able to properly evaluating your health condition, thoroughly explain Ozone's capability, and determine if it's the right treatment for you.
Healing your body with Ozone may be the first step in dealing with a condition, or it may the final puzzle piece that finally clears it up. Whatever stage you may fit into, our Medical Director, Dr. Dekel M.D., has successfully treated thousands of patients, with varying health conditions, using Ozone Therapy. We look forward to helping you accomplish your Health & Wellness goals soon!
