What can Ozone do (generally speaking)?
- Inactivates Viruses, Bacteria, Yeast, Fungi, Parasites and Protozoa
- Stimulates Immune System, Speeds Healing
- Cleans Arteries and Veins, Improving Circulation
- Oxidizes Toxins, Facilitating their Excretion
- Normalizes hormone and Enzyme Production
- Reduces Inflammation and Pain.
- Scavenges Free Radicals
- Chalets Heavy Metal, working well in conjunction with EDTA
- Stimulates production of Protective Enzymes
History of Medical Ozone
The German scientist C. Lender published an article in 1870 under the title ozone purify the blood.
The first water treatment plan with ozone was in Holland in 1893. Now there are more than 3200 water treatment plans with ozone in the world. During the First World War (1914-1918) ozone used to treat wounds, foot gangrene and effect of poisonous chlorine gas. It was found that infected wounds washed with rain water (containing ozone) heal faster than wounds washed with river water.
The German scientist Dr.Otto Warburg was awarded Noble Prize in Medicine in 1931 and in 1944 for his theory of the basic cause of cancer in damaged cell respiration and the importance of ozone as a preventive measure and treatment.
In 1972 the International Ozone Association was established.
In 1983 first International Medical Ozone Association conference was held in Washington.
How Does Ozone Work?
When a cell becomes stressed by physical or chemical shock or by viral, bacterial or fungal attack, its energy levels are reduced by the outflow of electrons and become electropositive. Ozone possesses the third atom of oxygen which is electrophilic i.e. ozone has a free radical electrical charge in the third atom of oxygen which seeks to balance itself electrically with other material with a corresponding unbalanced charge.
Diseased cells, viruses, harmful bacteria and other pathogens carry such a charge and so attract ozone and its by-products. When ozone is introduced into the blood, it reacts with these oxidisable substrates killing viruses, bacteria and fungi. In addition, the metabolic waste products of these organisms are oxidized and an oxygen rich environment is provided which healthy cells can thrive.
Normal healthy cells can not react with ozone or its by-products as they posses a balanced electrical charge and strong enzyme system.
Ozone Targets Only Diseased Cells and Pathogens
Mode of Action of Ozone
- Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa – Ozone disrupts the integrity of bacterial cell envelope through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins. It also damages viral capsid and upsets reproductive cycle by disrupting virus-to-cell contact with peroxidation.
- Enhancement of Circulation – Ozone reduces clumping of red cells and restores its flexibility and oxygen carrying ability. The arterial oxygen partial pressure increases and viscosity decreases leading to better tissue oxygenation. In addition ozone oxidizes plaques in arteries allowing removal of the breakdown products.
- Stimulation of oxygen metabolism – Ozone increases red blood cell glycolysis rate leading to stimulation of 2, 3-diphosphoglycerate (2, 3-DPG) and accordingly increase of oxygen released to tissues. In addition ozone activates Krebs cycle by enhancing oxidative carboxylation of pyruvate leading to stimulation of production of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) and accordingly more energy on the cellular level.
- Stimulation of the production of the enzymes which act as a free radical scavengers and cell wall protectors – Glutathione Peroxidase, Catalase, and Superoxide Dismutase. So medical ozone is a free radical scavenger.
- Dissolution of malignant tumors – Ozone inhibits tumor metabolism, oxidizes the outer lipid layer of malignant cells and destroys them through cell lysis. Also ozone increases the ability of phagocytes to kill tumor cells (by stimulation of conversion of arginine to citrulline, nitrite and nitrate by phagocytes)
- Activation of the immune system – Ozone stimulates the production of interferon times. It also stimulates the production of interleukins mainly Interleukin-2. In addition ozone stimulates the production of Tumor necrosis factor (TNF).
Conditions treated by Ozone
As ozone works on the cellular level so it can be used in many conditions and in different specialties. The conditions that can be treated by ozone can be divided under the following groups:
Some viral diseases e.g. Hepatitis, AIDS and Herpes Zoster. Nowadays there are several studies on the use of ozone in treatment of aids based on its anti-viral action.
Some degenerative diseases and Disturbances of the immune system e.g. Rheumatic diseases and rheumatoid disorders. Ozone is not only immuno-stimulant but also immuno-modulator as it also stimulates the production of interleukin 10.
Some bacterial diseases e.g. infected wounds, diabetic foot, infected burns, and chronic sinusitis.
Some vascular diseases e.g. atherosclerosis, Burger`s disease, Reynaud’s disease and peripheral vascular insufficiency.
Some allergic conditions e.g. bronchial asthma and eczema.
Malignancy in combination with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy
Obesity and hyper-cholesterolaemia.
It is highly efficient in managing exhaustion, nervous tension and pain in general.
However it should be known that Ozone is an Adjuvant Therapy and that Ozone does Not Rule out Classic Medicine. But Ozone has Remarkable Results in Combination with Classic Medicine or if Classic Medicine Can Not be used due to ineffectiveness or side-effects.
