Ozone Therapy

Ozone Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to use something very natural and sustainable that can reduce and possibly prevent the overuse of antibiotics and drugs.  It has been proven effective for treating viruses, fungi, and bacteria, as well as inflammation and damaged tissues.

Ozone Therapy may sound like something new, but has actually been around for over a century in human healthcare.

What is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone Therapy is the use of medical grade ozone, a highly reactive form of pure oxygen, to create a curative response in the body.   The body has the potential ability to renew and regenerate itself.  When the body is sick, it is because this ability has been blocked.  The reactive properties of ozone stimulate the body to remove this barrier.  This allows the body to heal itself.

How Does It Work?

Ozone decreases inflammation.  When you have inflammation, swelling, bruising, infection, cancer and trauma to the tissue, there are higher amounts of carbon dioxide within the tissue.  This increase of carbon monoxide contributes to the inflammation and pain.  Increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissue in the form of reactive ozone decreases inflammation, pain and swelling and helps increase the healing.

Ozone therapy has also been shown to activate the immune system by stimulating cytokine production.  Cytokine are “messenger cells” that set off a fountain of positive changes throughout the immune system.  Ozone also promotes the enzymes forming the cell wall coating thereby enhancing cellular immunity.

Ozone inactivates bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa.  The bacteria and viruses do not have the healthy coating as mentioned above.  Ozone therapy disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell, disrupts the reproductive cycle and damages the viral capsid in viruses and it inhibits cell growth in fungi.

Administration Options

Since ozone aids in the healing of any problem, it can be added to any treatment protocol.

It can be percolated into saline fluids to be used as a flush to wounds, bladder, rectum, ear, nose, mouth; enema; IV or SQ fluids to be absorbed through the capillaries of the subcutaneous tissue.

It can be percolated through olive oil with or without essential oils for the skin.

It can be administered as a gas via catheter, internally or by sealing a wounded area in a bag.

I can be injected as a gas into joints with a prolotherapy (prozolone) injection.

Prolozone Therapy

This is a regenerative technique that involves injecting combinations of therapeutic elements to stimulate the body’s tissues to heal themselves.  This usually includes a combinations of liquid ozone, vitamins, minerals, anti-inflammatory medicines, homeopathic medicines and anesthetic agents into injured joints or areas of pain.
