What is medical grade ozone?

Medical ozone therapy has been around for approximately 150 years and has been used in European clinics and hospitals for over 50 years. It was introduced into the United States in the early 1980s with increasing use since. 

Medical ozone is a highly reactive form of pure oxygen. The most stable form of oxygen found in the atmosphere is O2 but when pure oxygen is exposed to an electrical force it temporarily splits apart into 2 single oxygen atoms. Almost immediately many of them will revert back to O2 molecules but a small percentage of them will unite to form an O3 molecule. This unique O3 molecule provides many special healing responses when it is exposed to tissues and blood in the body. 

Ozone activates the immune system in infectious diseases, improves cellular utilization of oxygen, which reduces ischemia in cardiovascular disease and many of the infirmities of aging, it causes the release of growth factors that stimulate damaged joints and degenerated discs to regenerate, and it can dramatically reduce or even eliminate many cases of chronic pain through its action on pain receptors. Published papers have demonstrated its healing effects on interstitial cystitis, chronic hepatitis, herpes infections, dental infection, diabetes and macular degeneration. 

How is ozone used?

Doctors trained in the use of medical grade ozone know how to administer it into blood, joints, spine, and body cavities such as bladder and intestine.

What are some of the conditions ozone therapy can be utilized for?

Since oxygen and oxygen utilization is fundamental to cellular health, ozone therapy has been found to be useful for many conditions including heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, herpes, hepatitis, interstitial cystitis, diabetes, Lyme disease, chemical sensitivities, macular degeneration, intestine disorders, and autoimmune disorders.

What is prolozone therapy?

Prolozone is a form of injection technique for many forms of pathologies including neck pain, back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerative discs, shoulder and elbow pain. In many cases prolozone helps to correct the pathology of the disorder and there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to become permanently pain free.

Is ozone therapy safe?

A safety study conducted in 1982 found that in a group of 384,775 patients treated with various forms of ozone therapy including a total of 5,579,283 treatment sessions, a very low complication rate of 0.006% was observed. Major complications occurred when ozone was improperly provided from untrained practitioners. Properly trained practitioners administering ozone therapy is found to be one of the safest of all medical therapies.

Ozone therapy is used throughout the world for various medical, dental and veterinarian indications for over 50 years. There are over 2,300 peer reviewed scientific papers published on the use of ozone therapy and more being published every day.

Is ozone anti-aging?

As we age our body’s ability to utilize oxygen efficiently decreases. Ozone balances the immune response by modulating the cytokine response of the white blood cells. In other words, for an immune system that is hyperactive it will reduce it and for an immune system that is under active it will increase it.

Ozone also improves circulation through the capillaries, the smallest blood vessels in the body. This is partially done by making the red blood cells more flexible to flow through the tiny vessels. Ozone improves the ability of red blood cells to drop off oxygen at the tissues through the increase of a particular enzyme called DPG.

Ozone increases mitochondrial production of energy from the cells of your body. Mitochondria are organelles within cells that are responsible for producing energy. The decreased energy production from mitochondria is one of the factors behind all chronic illnesses and aging. Ozone is a stimulant for enhancing your body’s own ability to produce antioxidants. Many chronic conditions have a reduction in antioxidants.
