COVID-19 is changing the way we think about our health and medicines. We’ve rely heavily on antibiotics to treat various infections, but they do not address viral infections, which are the most common cause of the flu. In fact, antibiotics not only kill off the bad flora in our body but the good flora as well, which weakens our immune system.
Ozone therapy offers anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral agents as an alternative without the toxic side-effects of antibiotics. As preventative therapy, Ozone therapy can protect you from contracting an illness that could eventually require antibiotics.
Many of us are familiar with Ozone because of the role it plays in our atmosphere. When used in dentistry Ozone therapy has amazing oral health benefits and is a powerful holistic option. Ozone, a naturally occurring agent, kills bacteria, fungus, viruses and parasites and therefore, is a great tool for treating oral infection and disease with no toxicity and side effects.
In patient care: Ozone is utilized in 3 forms
1. Ozonated water
2. Pure oxygen/ozone gas
3. Ozonated oil
For more on how we treat our patients utilizing Ozone therapy, see our article, “6 ways the power of Ozone is benefitting our patients”.
How does Ozone therapy work?
Healthy cells have antioxidant enzymes in their cell membranes, which protects them from being oxidized (burned up) by ozone.
Bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites have little or no antioxidant enzymes in their cell membranes. This makes them vulnerable to oxidants such as Ozone, which destroys the cell membrane of these pathogens resulting in disinfecting or sterilization effect.
Ozone is most commonly used in the sterilization of public water systems, the food and bottled beverage industry as well as in air purification.
Here’s how HealthLine.com describes Ozone Therapy: “Ozone therapy refers to the process of administering ozone gas into your body to treat a disease or wound. Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three atoms of oxygen (O3). It can be used to treat medical conditions by stimulating the immune system. It can also be used to disinfect and treat disease… Ozone therapy also helps flush out infected cells. Once the body rids itself of these infected cells, it produces new, healthy ones.”
Ozone Therapy and anti-aging skin rejuvenation
From the LifeCo.com: “Ozone Therapy has historically been used to treat various conditions. More recently, it has been used as a tool for enhancing anti-aging. By increasing the oxygen level in the blood, it oxygenates the tissues in the whole body. Not only it positively affects the appearance of our skin, but also it helps our body’s healing process. It supports blood and liver detoxification and boosts the immune system. It can be administered intravenously, rectally or through a special sauna. For therapeutic purposes, a program of minimum 10 sessions is recommended.”
