What is Ozone Therapy? Ozone Therapy is a unique treatment that detoxifies and heals the body. Ozone Therapy uses ozone, a colorless gas made up of three oxygen atoms which is created by sending an electrical charge through oxygen gas (O2).
This energetic molecule known as (O3) readily donates its third oxygen atom to free radicals that cause damage to our bodies through oxidation. Ozone halts the oxidation process by stabilizing the free radicals in our cells.
Research shows that Ozone has multiple therapeutic effects and Ozone Therapy has been studied and used for over 150 years. Ozone has been used to successfully treat a variety of conditions such as: Allergies, Heart Disease, Chronic Fatigue, Joint Pain, Muscle Pain, Nerve Pain, Auto-immune Diseases, Skin Disorders, Infections, Viruses, Fribromyalgia, Cancer, Diabetes, Digestive Disorders, Inflammation, etc.
Why haven’t I heard of Ozone Therapy? How is it possible that something so powerful, available, inexpensive and effective at treating so many diseases is so unknown for it’s healing benefits? The answer is simple. Ozone comes from Oxygen. Oxygen cannot be patented. Therefore “Big Pharma” has no interest in promoting a therapy that they cannot profit from.
The Top 10 Benefits of Ozone Therapy Are:
1. Ozone Strengthens Your Immune System
Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system. When the immune system is overactive (as in auto-immune disease), Ozone will calm it down. When the immune system is underactive as in chronic diseases / infections, Ozone will stimulate it. This unique ability of Ozone stems from its activation of immune related messenger molecules called cytokines.
2. Ozone Kills Bacteria and Viruses on Contact
Ozone interferes with the metabolism of bacterium-cells, through inhibiting and blocking the operation of the enzymatic control system. Ozone breaks through the cell membrane and destroys bacteria. Ozone destroys viruses, including HIV, by diffusing through the protein coat into the nucleic acid core resulting in damage of the viral RNA. Medical Ozone has been show to kill 99.999% lipid viruses and bacteria in the test tube, water, bodily fluids, and in the air.
3. Ozone Increases the Oxygen Level Of Your Cells
Oxygen enables our cells to make energy. Without oxygen our cells will die. If our cells die, eventually we die. Ozone increases the amount of oxygen that is delivered to the cells by the Red Blood Cells thus supplying your tissues and organs with better oxygenated blood. This gives you a tremendous boost in your overall energy.
4. Ozone Detoxifies Your Body
In transdermal Ozone Therapy, (Ozone Sauna), the pores of the skin open due to the gentle heat and steam created by the Sauna and Ozone enters the body through the skin. The Ozone penetrates the blood, lymph and fat. By allowing the Ozone in and the toxins out through the sweating process, this method is incredibly effective at detoxifying and oxygenating the body at the same time.
5. Ozone Reduces Pain and Inflammation
Ozone alters immune function by causing a controlled oxidative effect, mobilizing the body’s antioxidant defenses, and resolving inflammation. It has a powerful pain relieving effect due to increased circulation and oxygen utilization.
6. Ozone can kill Cancer cells
The way Ozone kills unhealthy cells, and not healthy cells is through enzymes. All healthy cells have three enzymes that protect them from being oxidized. All healthy cells love oxygen and require it to operate properly. Unhealthy cells don’t have these enzymes to protect them from being oxidized. This makes all unhealthy cells, including cancer cells defenseless to Ozone. Ozone is not considered to be a “Stand Alone Treatment” to cancer.
7. Ozone Increases Energy
You breathe oxygen so that it can be used to create energy in your cells. Quite often this process does not occur very efficiently, especially when humans reach age 50 and beyond. Ozone helps to revitalize this process so that you can make more energy from the oxygen that you are breathing. Ozone Therapy is highly recommended for anyone with Chronic Fatigue / Fibromyalgia / Depression.
8. Ozone Reduces Acidity
Ozone breaks down the levels of Uric Acid in the body which is the cause of Gout and damages the blood vessels. Ozone also helps reduce hyper-acidity in the GI tract which can lead to diseases such as Acid – Reflux and GERD.
9. Ozone is “Anti–Aging”
In order to counteract the aging process it is critical to raise the amount of Oxygen in your blood and in your cells. As we age our cells decrease in their ability to utilize oxygen efficiently. Properly Oxygenated cells / blood leads to youthful looking skin as well as a sense of “feeling good”. Ozone Therapy is one of the most effective ways to do this.
10. Ozone Improves Circulation / Chronic Illness
Many patients with chronic inflammatory conditions have impaired circulation. Ozone improves circulation by improving the flow characteristic of blood as a liquid. It is also a powerful mitochondrial stimulant. The mitochondria are the energy source for every cell in your body. The fundamental cause behind all chronic illness from Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer, Chronic Fatigue, etc. is decreased mitochondrial energy production.
At Millennium Wellness we are passionate about making this amazing therapy available to our patients. We offer Ozone Therapy in the following forms:
Ozone Sauna – This is an inexpensive therapy that takes about 30 minutes. The patient sits in a steam sauna cabinet that is infused with Ozone. The patient has their head out of the Sauna so that they can continue to breath normally. The Sauna is extremely beneficial at detoxifying the body and can help rid the body of heavy metals. This treatment is particularly useful when you feel like you are, “Coming down with something.”
Ozonated Water – Another way to consume Ozone is through Ozonated water. Patients are required to call ahead and make an appointment to receive their 16 ounce bottle of Ozonated Water. It takes about 20 minutes to prepare the water and because Ozone is a gas, it must be consumed within the first hour after preparation to be considered viable. This form of Ozone is helpful for GI conditions such as acid reflux, GERD, and stomach ulcers.
Ozone Insufflation Bags – This method is recommended for anyone who is suffering from any type of chronic illness / auto – immune condition. This is a powerful way to introduce Ozone into the body in order to achieve a systemic effect. Patients are instructed to call ahead to have an insufflation bag filled with Ozone gas. Once the bag is filled the patient is instructed to go home and administer the treatment within 30 minutes. The gas is administered rectally or vaginally and treatment is completed in 2 to 3 minutes. This form of Ozone Therapy is effective in treating women’s health issues, digestive issues, and for general immune support.
Prolozone Injections – This is one of the most powerful forms of Ozone Therapy that we offer. Prolozone Injections are a combination of Prolotherapy and Ozone Therapy. Prolozone is derived from the Latin word “Proli” which means to regenerate or rebuild and the word Ozone. Prolozone is a safe, non-surgical, regenerative therapy used to reduce and often cure chronic and acute pain commonly caused by: Arthritis, Injury / Trauma, Tendonitis, Sprains, Partially Torn Ligaments / Tendons, Herniated / Bulging Discs, Low Back Pain, Hip Pain, Knee Pain, Leg, Foot, and Ankle Pain, Plantar Fascitis, Sciatica, Shoulder Pain, Wrist Pain / Carpal Tunnel, TMJ, etc.
