Ozone Therapy / Oxygen Therapy
There has been much recent publicity concerning the depletion of the earth's natural ozone layer. Most people are consequently aware of the importance of ozone in protecting us from harmful solar rays. However, people may not be aware that ozone may also be effectively used in therapy.
Ozone in Medicine
The main properties of medical ozone are anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It is a fact that most of today's commonest health problems are due either to residual virus or post viral fatigue e.g. the ME Syndrome, or bacterial imbalances such as Candida (Monilia albicans). Further clinical evidence would suggest that the over-use of antibiotics in our society has had a long term debilitating effect on our inherent immune systems, thus, not only weakening our defence against invasive infection but also our response to it, e.g. Aids.
Cause of Illness
More than a century ago the French professor, Claude Bernard remarked (translated): "the microbe is nothing, the terrain is all", i.e. the conditions have to be favourable for an illness to develop. It is predominantly when blood and saliva are too alkaline, that the tissues become too acidic and fermentation begins. Most degenerative diseases develop from a state of fermentation behaving like fungus or yeast, multiplying and colonising. Consequently, it is in this predominantly alkaline environment that a whole host of conditions prevail, from cystitis to cancer.
How Does Medical Ozone Work ?
One of the major advantages of medical ozone is its ability to oxygenate the main tissues. Ozone, when applied in accordance with medical practice, has the effect of supplying oxygen to the deep ultra-cellular tissue structure, thereby not only oxygenating but also stimulating the patient's own respiratory enzymes in the healing process.
The Indications for Ozone and its Underlying Active Mechanisms of Action
How Is Medical Ozone Applied?
Medical ozone may be applied in a number of different ways depending on the condition being presented. Some of the most commonly used applications in the Clinic are :-
Is Ozone Dangerous?
Applied correctly, ozone therapy is quite harmless and in most cases totally pain-free. Its highly beneficial and successful application in a wide range of medical conditions has rendered it invaluable to present medical practitioners.
