You may already know that Ozone is an alternate version of oxygen. Oxygen in the air we breathe is actually two molecules of oxygen attached together, or O2. Ozone is an ‘activated’ form of oxygen where there are actually three atoms of oxygen attached together, forming a molecule that is “O3”. Ozone (O3) behaves completely differently than O2. Ozone is far more energetic and oxidative than Oxygen, which is what makes it so valuable to us for so many applications, such as Air Purification, Water Purification, and Medical Ozone Therapy Applications..

But I thought ozone was a bad thing?

Not at all…in fact it is just the opposite!!

When referring to air quality they often report ozone levels. What they are really concerned with is the smog level. ‘Smog’ is a complex ever changing mixture of toxic gasses and particles, which is very difficult to measure accurately. Early on it was noted that when smog levels are high, it is accompanied by a high level of ozone in the air. When smog levels are low, there is a low level of ozone in the air. The Ozone, is actually there to destroy (oxidize) the toxic chemicals in smog and return the air to a breathable status. Since ozone is so easy to measure, scientists gave up trying to measure smog and instead rely on ozone levels to indicate how much smog is in the air. Since they are measuring ozone levels, the word “Ozone” became synonymous with ‘smog’ and everyone gets the idea that ozone is bad (which of course, it is not)..

How does Medical Ozone Therapy work?

Ozone works so well for such a wide variety of medical conditions and diseases that unfortunately many people don’t believe that the reported results could possibly be true. Well, they are. The reason it works for so many diseases and conditions is because it affects the biochemistry of the body on a cellular level. It gets to the root cause of all diseases.

ThriveMD Ozone TherapyHow is all of this possible? Ozone addresses and corrects so many of the basic systems in our bodies, such as energy production, oxygen delivery, oxygen utilization, immune system enhancement, oxidation levels. In using ozone for one health challenge it makes sense that correcting these systems for that one health challenge would also help alleviate (or eliminate) some of the other health challenges in the body.

The traditional thinking in western medicine is to find the problem and then come up with something to address that problem. This may be some type of intervention like surgery, or a drug which is usually designed to address the symptom, not really the underlying problem itself. Many people have a hard time grasping the power of ozone therapy because it does not fit into this “western” model of medicine. Ozone does not work by treating a specific problem, it works by improving the health of your body at the very basic cellular level which, in tun. effects everything!

What does it do and how does it do it? Here are just a few things:

  1. Ozone modulates the immune system so that it functions as it was designed to function.
    A weakened immune system means that you are vulnerable to becoming ill. It also means that if you become ill, you are less likely to recover or it will at least take longer to do so. Ozone has the ability to ‘wake up’ and also to modulate the immune system to make it function better. So if a person is frequently ill the ozone will strengthen their immune system. If the immune system has malfunctioned in such things as auto-immune diseases ozone therapy will help to modulate the system and calm this inappropriate attach.
  2. Ozone increases oxygen delivery to the tissues and cells.
    Everyone knows that oxygen is essential for survival. We can go weeks to months (or longer without food, days without water but only minutes without oxygen. Oxygen enables our cells to make energy. Without oxygen our cells can’t make energy, and without energy our cells will die. If our cells die, we die. Ozone increases the amount of oxygen that is delivered to the cells by the RBC’s or Red Blood Cells. It also makes the Red Blood Cells more ‘flexible’ so that they can do a better job of fitting down long skinny blood vessels that supply your tissues and organs with blood and oxygen.
  3. Ozone kills bacteria and viruses on contact, and it inhibits the ability of viruses to attach to cells.
    Killing bacteria is fantastic, as it inhibits their ability to cause disease. Ozone will also inhibit a virus’s ability to attach to cells. This is important. If a virus can’t attach to your cells, it can’t cause disease.
  4. Ozone increases cellular energy production, making energy production more efficient.
    You breathe oxygen so that it can be used to create energy in your cells. Quite often this process does not occur very efficiently, especially when humans age beyond the age of 30. Ozone helps to ‘reviatalize’ this process so that you can make more energy from that oxygen that you are breathing, just like fine tuning a car engine so that it can get more power out of gasoline.
  5. Ozone decreases the level of oxidation in your body.
    Oxidation is a normal biological process that is essential to life. Without Oxidation you would die. The problem is that oxidation sometimes gets out of control in the body, and the overall levels of oxidation get too high. It has been noted by researchers that all disease is accompanied by an increase in oxidation in the body beyond the normal limits. It would follow then that if you could lower the oxidation levels of your body back down to normal, this would help the body recover from any illness. How would you do this? Take antioxidants of course, like Vitamin C, E, etc. The problem is that taking ‘antioxidants’ does not actually lower the oxidation levels of the body. It has been proven through scientific study that this method simply does not work. Taking a closer look at this, researchers have realized why antioxidants don’t lower the oxidation levels of the body, because this job is actually handled by antioxidant enzyme systems in the body, not the antioxidants themselves. The antioxidant enzyme systems of your body must be sufficiently active and in sufficient supply in order for you to have a lowering of the overall oxidation levels of the body. It just so happens that this is what ozone does. Ozone increases the levels of antioxidant enzyme systems in your body, and also their activity, helping the body to achieve an overall lowering and balancing of the oxidation levels in your body, and thereby helping to bring the body back to a state of health.

Ozone Therapy Methods:

  • Major Autohemotherapy – removing blood, ozonating it, returning it to the patient
  • Minor Autohemotherapy – remove a small amount of blood (10cc), ozonate it, inject it into muscle
  • Limb Bagging – a topical ozone application
  • Ozone into Ears
  • Topical Ozone – for open wounds
  • Ozonated water for drinking
  • Ozone Sauna
  • Rectal Insufflation – infusing ozone rectally
