Ozone and other oxygen therapies have been used for over 100 years around the world for human and animal healing. These therapies continue to gain popularity, as scientists learn about the health benefits of increased oxygen in the body. Currently, ozone therapy brings easily soluble oxygen to target tissues, and it is being proven effective for treating viruses, fungi, and bacteria, and for general health improvement anytime there is inflammation and damaged tissue. In addition to medical uses, ozone is a great disinfectant used for livestock water tanks, cattle embryo transfer, swimming pools, spas, and the water treatment systems of over 2,000 municipalities around the world.
Ozone therapy is also wonderful for infections as well as swelling, bruising and trauma. .When used on the skin it can disinfect and repair wounds. It's amazing how something so simple – an extra oxygen molecule added to a cell – can start a cascade of repair..
What is ozone and how does it heal?
Oxygen as you know it makes all life possible. It’s the molecule from which all cellular energy, and thus function and healing, is derived. What you may not know is when “activated” through an ozone generating machine, oxygen turns from O2 (oxygen) into O3 (ozone).
Ozone contains three oxygen atoms, which react in the tissue as it breaks down to ordinary oxygen (O2) and a reactive singlet oxygen molecule that can combine with chemicals and other molecules. Free from side effects, this is an extremely safe therapy that works in a number of ways.
It puts “extra” oxygen in diseased, cancerous, inflamed or infected tissue. Typically, these areas are low in oxygen, thereby decreasing the chances for healthy cells to survive and/or defend themselves.. The O2 increases oxygen in these areas, greatly boosting the body’s healing powers.
