Ozone is a gas which increases the supply of oxygen to all body cells, thus exerting a widespread oxygenation.
Effects of Ozone
With adequately controlled ozonation, red blood cells are not only loaded with oxygen, but also increase their ability to transfer it to the cells. They have also been found to become more elastic, favoring their passage through the narrowest capillaries, carrying oxygen to areas that, due to age, are entering hypoxia. Ozone has been scientifically proven to increase the amount of antioxidants in cells, promoting a genuine cleaning out free radicals, thus exerting a powerful and real anti-aging effect. Ozone acts on the body’s defenses as an immuno-modulator. This means that it shapes and stabilizes the immune system functions, canceling or limiting aggression, of germs as well as of tumor cells. The germicidal properties of ozone are also enhanced by the formation of hydrogen peroxide, potent against anaerobic microbes. The general oxygenating effect also has favorable effects on the muscular system, revitalizing, relieving tiredness and improving chronic fatigue. The supply of oxygen is crucial for wound healing and to prevent gangrene, so ozone therapy is the ideal alternative in diabetic patients, often exposed to infectious processes linked to hypoxia.It also regulates cholesterol in the blood.
Uses of systemic ozone
Improves oxygenation and is involved in the metabolic pathway of glucose, regulating blood sugar.
- Ischemic diseases
Prevents and protects in cases of both myocardial and cerebral infarction. Today we know that with systemic ozone therapy we improve cerebral oxygenation and offer protection in cases of vascular accidents, minimizing ischemic damage.
- Liver and kidney diseases
Several studies exist endorsing some very good effects with these diseases.
- Neurological diseases
Reoxygenating properties of the central nervous system have been proven, and several papers have been published on the excellent results of their application in different types of dementia and Parkinson’s disease.
There are studies that support cellular oxygenation as a way to improve the condition and quality of life of patients, at the same time damaging tumor cells. Ozone therapy can also be used as an adjunct treatment with radiotherapy and chemotherapy, optimizing the physical condition of the patient before and after receiving these therapies.
- Allergy and Immunology
Several scientific studies show activation of the immune system, which makes it effective in diseases such as asthma, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, and candidiasis syndrome . What all these diseases have in common is that they are caused by an alteration in the immune system, responsible for modulating the body’s defenses.
- Preventative ozone is increasingly necessary for everyone.
- Significant deficit of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (favism).
- Uncontrolled hyperthyroidism
- significant thrombocytopenia
- Severe cardiovascular instability (eg. Recent myocardial infarction)
- convulsive status
- hemorrhagic cases
The medicinal ozone is quite safe and side effects are practically nil. No allergic disorders and generally have not been described interactions with other drugs. The ozone administration is generally well tolerated by patients.
