What is Ozone Therapy?
Known as a controversial alternative therapy, Ozone Therapy is continuing to increase in popularity as preventative and supplementary medicine. Beginning to grow as an effective method of treatment starting in 2003, the process supports bringing the body into a state of balance.
Ozone Therapy uses pure O3, with three molecules of ozone, injecting it into the body to rebalance the cellular system. In return, it supports bringing the body back to its natural state while detoxifying the system.
Ozone Therapy can be used with subtle or more engaged practices. Autohemotherapy is one of the known ways, in which the O3 is injected either through an IV where blood is taken out of the body and sent back into the body with the added O3. It can also be injected through the rectal area for the same impact.
More subtle practices can also be used with an ozone sauna, in forms of water, or can be applied to the skin to treat wounds. These treatments with Ozone Therapy release into the body differently because they don't go directly into the bloodstream, having an alternative impact.
Each process with Ozone Therapy is able to act as a detoxification system to the areas applied while effectively supporting health and regeneration.
The History of Ozone Therapy
Ozone Therapy was discovered in the last 1800s, specifically where it was used as a disinfectant and form of sterilizing surgical instruments. It became a popular method to disinfect drinking water from bacteria and viruses with it's known properties to remove various viruses and bacteria.
William Reich was the first to use ozone as a form of alternative medicine, specifically in which he found that ozone therapy was able to increase the life-force, which he referred to as Orgone. By the end of the 1800s, ozone was used to treat tuberculosis and became a popular form of treating wounds during World War II, in which it was found to damage bacterial cells.
While Ozone Therapy was found to support the removal of bacteria and viruses, the controversy with the therapy increased because of the possible side effects to the lungs as well as taking too much ozone at once, which could negatively impact the cellular system and tissues in conjunction with destroying the bacteria and viruses within the system.
Despite the questions about Ozone Therapy, studies are now highlighting that the process can be used with various treatments and is effective in dentistry, osteoporosis, and the treatment of various diseases. It also supports detoxification processes and rebalance of the body.
What Is Ozone Therapy Used For?
Ozone Therapy is available to treat both as a primary method as well as a complementary treatment for a variety of diseases and illnesses. It can also be used as a form of detoxification from parasites, bacteria, yeast, and protozoa.
Because ozone therapy has 3 molecules instead of 2, the last molecule becomes oxidative. The extra oxygen is able to split the cells, focusing on removal of any toxins that are within the body. This split of oxygen breaks up toxins, fat, and other imbalances within the body.
Some treatments this is used for include:
* Skeletal issues, such as osteoarthritis or herniated disks
* HIV - AIDS
* Multiple Sclerosis
* Heart Disease
* Lyme disease
* Weight loss
* Breathing Disorders
How Ozone Therapy Works
The administration of ozone has several safety precautions, specifically because of the use of three oxygen atoms. This can cause instability, causing the results with different body types to remain unknown or cause reactivity.
Because of the instabilities, doctors who administer ozone follow a slow process to ensure that ozone does not negatively impact the body.
Treatments start with 100cc doses, a small amount that ensures there is no negative reactions within the body. This is slowly increased over a period of time to ensure that the body does not respond or react after administered.
The time frame for ozone administration takes between 20-30 visits. After 5-10 doses of 100cc, there will be an increase to 150, followed by 200, and the highest dosage at 240cc.
If the body is healthy and does not respond, the doses can be increased at a faster rate, while any reactions will cause the administration of ozone to be provided at a slower pace.
Treatments are given three times per week. The ozone disperses in the body for an average of 10 minutes and it can be cycled every 48 hours for the most effective use.
Studies and the Use of Ozone Therapy
The FDA has not approved Ozone Therapy, stating that ozone can have adverse effects on the lungs and body. The instability of the third molecule of oxygen is an unknown that is continuing to be studied.
Despite the controversy of Ozone Therapy, there are more studies that are beginning to show the possible treatments that are used effectively. Various studies, such as through the National Library of Medicine, are now showcasing that there are benefits to the therapy.
Benefits such as dentist treatments are now commonly used as therapy. Researchers are also finding that the ability of O3 to react to molecules can support balance with phospholipids, lipoproteins, cell envelopes of bacteria, and viral capsids. Specific studies have shown that the recovery with the use of ozone doubles the healing process from 30% to an average of 60% in rebalancing the body.
The studies are all showing continuous support for helping to heal patients with adverse effects while positively impacting the natural balance of the body.
