Ozone (O³) Health Benefits

Information about the concrete benefits of using ozone in health can be found easily with a simple web search, for example, the Google search engine, can prove you that. However, we leave you here, now, some of the benefits of using ozone in health, the findings and witnessed by a renowned physician who is active in Vancouver (Canada).


Healthy cells require oxygen. Most infections occur due to the invasion of anaerobes, but this will not thrive in an environment rich in oxygen. The oxygen deficiency in the body, eg due to the polluted air, a sedentary lifestyle or food like fast-food which require a lot of oxygen for the elimination of harmful elements to the body, stimulates the proliferation of anaerobic bacteria. The growth of harmful microbes will lead to deterioration of enzymatic reactions, overload of metabolic wastes and ultimately cell death. Under similar anaerobic conditions, cells tend to mutate into a more primitive life, ranging from aerobic respiration to anaerobic respiration in energy synthesis. Dr.Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1923 showed that the primary cause of cancer is the lack of replenishment of oxygen in the cells and the fermentation of sugar. The on going growth of new cancer patients is a fermentation process that can be initiated only in the relative absence of oxygen. Ozone is one of nature's most powerful oxidants. It is used in water purification and sewage treatment, and is currently being implemented in Europe as a drug, being used in wounds and cancer colitis, as well as complementary treatment of AIDS. Yes, the same atmospheric ozone layer that is responsible for protecting us from ultraviolet rays under the sun exposure and also oxidize pollutants in the air, can be produced from medical oxygen via electrical discharge. It is administered as a mixture of gases: Ozone / oxygen (O3/O2). According to the strength (milligrams per milliliter of O2 O3, the correct scale of concentration, the medical Ozone is the pharmaceutical agent that possesses a specific and well defined efficacy scale.

Propertie of Medical Ozone American Society of Hematology, (01 October 1992) at concentrations below approximately three and a half percent, the three main properties restitucional Ozone can be observed by their influence on the oxidative metabolism of oxygen , induction of specific enzymes and activation of immune-competent cells. These are the systemic influences of ozone that makes it a therapeutic tool as potent because most of diseases affecting humans today can be traced to decreasing levels of oxygen and a compromised immune system.

Ozone medicinal properties:

At the higher range of concentration (three and a half to five percent ozone in oxygen, exhibits germicidal effect due to its strong oxidative for destruction. The oxidative power of the ozone virus has proven effective in LLE (lipid-enveloped) destroying some such as Epstein-Barr, herpes, cytomegalovirus and viruses that cause hepatitis. a recent study indicates that ozone treatment was 97 to 100 per cent effective in destroying HIV "in vitro". ("Journal of the American Society of Hematology, 01 October 1992), is these systemic influences of ozone caused a therapeutic tool is so powerful, because most diseases affecting humans today can be observed by the reduction of oxygen and a compromised system in their immunity.

Ozone direct electrical charge changes increase in the erythrocyte membrane due to the flexibility and plasticity of the erythrocytes. Thus enhancing the flow of the blood and oxygen transport to the 'cells' and tissues. This is especially applicable in arterial occlusion disease whereby stack formation in red cells. The indirect mechanism consists of ozonolysis, ie, the ionization reaction of ozone with unsaturated fatty acids in cell membranes thus producing peroxides. It should be noted that ozone behaves as an ion, not a free radical under normal physiological blood pH no reaction but in the meantime hold the free radical to cause the "stress" oxidative. This reaction activates the enzyme 2,3-Diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG) in hemoglobin to release oxygen. This is of particular importance to diabetics in which 2,3-DPG is depressed.

Ozone Induces specific enzymes in the formation of short-lived peroxides at the membrane are injected into the "stack" and removed by the enzyme glutathione peroxidase. Consequently, it is recommended to supplement with vitamin E (N-acetyl-N-acetyl-cysteine??) and selenium during ozone therapy to support the detoxification system.

Ozone activates the Immunization System:

It has been documented that ozone can activate monocytes and llimfócitos, inducing production of cytokinas such as interleukin, interferon and tumor necrosis factor. (Journal of Medical Research International - Intl. Medical Research / 1994). The devastating diseases of today are characterized by immuno-depression such as chronic viral diseases, cancer and AIDS Of course, the restoration of the immune system depends on a combination of total detoxification, modification of lifestyle and supportive therapies.

Types of Ozone Administration:

There are several ways to administer ozone, depending on the circumstance and condition being treated. Auto-hemotherapy, mixing blood with ozone and reinfusion into the donor, is the most popular procedure among German physicians. Other methods include direct mixing of ozone / oxygen gas intravenous, or intra-arterial (particularly in critical limb ischemia). It has been proven that the direct injection of ozone has very low risk factors. No nitrogen is contained here so an air embolus can not occur. Rectal insufflation Ozone / oxygen is used to treat colitis, fistula and cancer. Ozone is also excellent for topical treatment of infected wounds, varicose ulcers and burns, especially those that are difficult to heal.

Medical indications:

The modern development of ozone application in medicine began in 50 years, first occurred in Europe and gradually spread throughout Europe, Australia, Israel, Cuba, Brazil and Colombia. In times farther away, in the First World War, Ozone has been used as medicine to treat wounds and other infections. More than 5,000 physicians throughout the world routinely use ozone in their medical practice. When incorporated, no side effects are known if the ozone treatment is correctly applied. However, since the treatment with ozone is dose-dependent, it should be administered under specialized supervision. Specific therapeutic applications of ozone include the treatment of vascular disease, viral diseases, arteriopathy, venous insufficiency, cancer, ulcers, infected wounds, gangrene, burns, Krohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and herniated disc problems. It is also used in dentistry as a disinfectant and in pediatrics for the treatment of viral and bacterial infections of the intestines. In geriatrics, its principal indication is in circulatory disorders. The increase in oxygen supply to the brain is of great benefit. Ozone, with all its miraculous properties and lack of toxicity, is undoubtedly an important tool in medicine. It is an unusual sword with two edges. It defends the body by stimulating the immune system and at the same time it improves oxygenation and metabolism.
I believe that ozone deserves a place in the management of health and disease.

The growth of ozone therapy in America is still impeded by companies whose economic interests are threatened by this powerful medical tool.
