What is ozone?

Ozone is a chemical compound made up of three O3 oxygen atoms (that is, triatomic oxygen), a highly energetic form of normal (diatomic) atmospheric oxygen (O2). Therefore, the molecules of these two forms are different in structure, that is

Whast is Ozone Therapy ?

Medical ozone has bactericidal, fungicidal and viricidal properties, so it is widely used in all bacterial, viral and fungal diseases. Its ability to stimulate circulation makes it used in circulatory disorders. When administered at low concentrations, resistance activates the immune system. In response to this activation, the body’s immune cells produce special messengers called cytokines (including important mediators such as interferons and interleukins). These inform the other cells of the immune system, triggering a cascade of positive changes throughout the immune system, which is stimulated to resist disease. This means that the application of medical ozone is very useful for immune activation in patients with a low immune level and / or immune deficit. Small amounts of ozone applied, activate the body’s own antioxidants. Therefore, it is possible to understand why ozone is used in diseases with chronic inflammation.

 

 

 

In which diseases is ozone therapy applied?

  • Infected wounds
  • Bad healing
  • Alterations in the circulation.
  • Chronic inflammatory diseases, such as chronic pain, osteoarthritis, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease.
  • Decrease of immunity.
  • Chronic inflammatory diseases, such as chronic pain, osteoarthritis, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease.

Application Methods

 

Autohemotherapy (treatment of the patient’s blood outside the body before reperfusion) in geriatrics (age-related conditions), for revitalization, in the treatment of circulatory disorders and viral diseases produced, and for the general immuno. With this method, 50 to 100 ml of the patient’s own blood is removed in the normal way, enriched on the outside with an exactly defined amount of the ozone layer (with sterile material and containers!). Ozone reacts completely – that is, at a rate of 100% – with specific substances that make up the red and white blood cells and thereby activates the metabolism of your vital activities. This is the active blood (not the ozone or oxygen layer), which is renewed immediately in the patient’s system using a normal drip unit.

Using the same principle, minor autohemotherapy is an application, intramuscularly, of O3 treated blood for nonspecific immune revitalization: it can be used in allergic diseases or in a general way to improve the inherent resistance of the body.

 

External treatment is mainly achieved through a closed system with O3 gas fed especially in plastic «boots» (for legs and feet) or bags, sheets, etc. mounting several parts of the body. These are, of course made of materials resistant to the ozone layer. Treated body parts previously moistened with water, ozone can not act in dry areas. This method is very effective in the treatment of ulcers, sores, open wounds, postoperative lesions, shingles (herpes) and infected areas, forms, etc. Other ozonized pure water (for example, in dental treatments) and ozonized pure medical olive oil (for skin rashes, such as eczema and disorders related to molds, fungi and lichen, etc).

 

Rectally the patient feels absolutely nothing, since the gas O3 is directly absorbed by the sensitive intestinal membranes and, in addition, the specially designed disposable tube is lubricated, which makes the method totally hygienic. This method is mainly indicated for inflammatory diseases of the intestinal tract, but is finding increasing use of the general revitalization processes.

 

Ozone injection into the joints (i.e. intra-articularly), as the name suggests, ozone is carefully injected – by a trained specialist – in the treatment of inflamed and painful joints (arthritis, recurrent osteoarthritis, general pathological stiffness). This is a necessity in many orthopedic practices. A general revitalization. Professional athletes and women. Ozone improves physical performance and shortens the regeneration phase.
