Ozone Therapy

Ozone Therapy
What is ozone therapy?
Ozone (O3) is a gas mostly found in the upper strata of the atmosphere known as the “Stratosphere”.Ozone is also found in smaller quantities in the “Troposphere” which is the atmospheric band closest to Earth.The presence of Ozone in the Stratosphere blocks harmful Ultra Violet radiation from the Sun and hence is helpful.The ozone molecule consists of three atoms of oxygen; it’s chemical formula is O3.
Gaseous ozone is bluish in color and has a pungent, distinctive smell. The name ozone is derived from the Greek word ‘ozein’, meaning "to smell or reek." The smell of ozone can often be experienced near electrical transformers or nearby lightning strikes. It is formed in these instances when an electrical discharge breaks an oxygen molecule (O2) into free oxygen atoms (O), which then combine with O2 in the air to make O3.


Popular Uses of Ozone:
  • Ozone gives more oxygen to Red Blood Cells and increases their glucose uptake.
  • It makes tissue cell membranes more elastic, pliable and healthy.
  • It helps cells to intake nutrients efficiently and throw out waste products quickly.
  • It relaxes blood vessels, capillaries and increases circulation.
  • It primes White Blood Cells and makes Immune System more efficient.
  • It destroys viruses, bacteria, fungi and other germs thus controlling infections.
  • It helps diseased cells to get rid of toxins and harmful free radicals.
  • Ozone helps increase energy level in body and has anti-ageing effect.

How Does Ozone Act?
Despite being a powerful oxidant, Ozone is able to stimulate the anti oxidant enzymes and therefore promoting a preconditioning effect or adaptability to oxidative stress.
Lower life forms like bacteria, virus, fungi, parasites lack anti oxidant enzymes. Therefore, they just cannot survive in presence of powerful oxidant like Ozone, however much they try and mutate!!
Ozone is one of the most powerful germicidal agent. This property of Ozone is used to treat infections.

Can Ozone Therapy cure all diseases?
Medical Ozone can positively influence or even heal a large number of diseases. This fact is confirmed by a large number of scientific investigations and medical publications. As a rule, Ozone is given in addition to other therapeutic methods. It is given as complementary or supportive therapy.
Medical Ozone, when properly and responsibly handled for the correct indication, is safe, practical, effective and economic. However, like any other medical treatment, Ozone therapy is not a ‘cure all’.
