Ozone therapy, 10 undisputed benefits in healing
Ozone therapy is one of the most powerful healing therapies and is something that is ubiquitous and all around us. This powerful, available, inexpensive and effective therapy for treating so many diseases is unknown for it’s healing benefits for a simple reason that it cannot be patented!
So what is Ozone and what does it do?
Ozone is an inert gas (O3 has 3 oxygen atoms) which readily donates it’s third oxygen atom to free radicals that are usually causing damage to our bodies through oxidation.
Top 10 benefits of ozone:
1. Ozone strengthens the immune system
Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system. When the immune system is abnormally active (as in auto-immune disease), ozone helps reduce this. Also when the immune system is under-active as in chronic infections, ozone will stimulate it. This unique ability of ozone stems from its activation of immune-related messenger molecules, so-called cytokines, like gamma interferon, interleukin-2, colony stimulating factor, and TNF-alpha, to name just a few.
2. Ozone kills bacteria and viruses
Ozone interferes with the metabolism of bacterial cells, A sufficient amount of ozone breaks through the cell membrane, and this leads to the destruction of the bacteria. Unlike bacteria, viruses multiply only within the host cell. They transform protein of the host cell into proteins of their own. Ozone destroys viruses by diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic acid core, resulting in damage of the viral RNA
3. Ozone increases the oxygen level of cells
Like we all know O2 is required for ATP formation which is the energy unit. Without oxygen, our cells can’t make ATP . Ozone increases the amount of oxygen that is delivered to the cells by the Red Blood Cells.
4. Ozone detoxifies body
The ozone in blood, lymph and fat, reacts with toxins to form end products like CO2 & Water allowing the ozone in and the toxins out.
5. Ozone reduces inflammation
Ozone alters immune function by causing a controlled oxidative effect, mobilizing the body’s antioxidant defenses, and resolving inflammation.
6. Ozone has been known to kill HIV
Medical ozone contains large excess of energy which it also uses to kill HIV, viruses bacteria and germs on contact. Active oxygen / medical ozone also kills HIV and viruses by using the byproducts formed when it mixes with bodily fluids. At right concentration, medical ozone kills 99.999% lipid viruses and bacteria in the test tube, water, bodily fluids and in the air.
7. Ozone can kill cancer cells
Ozone kills unhealthy cells as unhealthy cells thrive in anaerobic (nonoxygenated) environment, All healthy cells love oxygen and require it to operate properly. Every cell is really a oxygen burning machine. Unhealthy cells don’t have these enzymes to protect them from being oxidized. This makes all unhealthy cells, including cancers defenseless to ozone.
8. Ozone is anti-aging
For anti-aging, it is critical to raise the amount of oxygen in the blood and cells. Ozone therapy is one of the most powerful ways to do this. If used correctly, ozone is a “wonder drug” that has the potential to revolutionize medicine and anti-aging.
9. Ozone increases energy
We breathe oxygen so that it can be used to create energy in cells. Often this process does not occur very efficiently, especially when humans age beyond the age of 30 smokers or due to extreme environmental toxins. Ozone helps to ‘reviatalize’ this process so that we can make more energy from that oxygen that we breathe.
10. Ozone reduces acidity
Breaks down the level of uric acid in the body which is the cause of gout and damages the blood vessels.
