Oxygen is a life-sustaining element
The importance of delivering oxygen to the tissues is well established and understood. Every cell in the body needs adequate amounts of oxygen for proper detoxification, respiration and metabolism. When a cell is not receiving enough oxygen, it begins to ferment sugar and produce lactic acid. Quite simply, the body cannot heal, or function properly without adequate oxygen.
What is ozone?
Ozone is triatomic oxygen – oxygen with 3 atoms (O3). It is a molecule found naturally in our atmosphere– it is what protects us from the sun’s harmful rays. It is also created during thunderstorms when lightning strikes – that is what gives the air that “fresh” smell after a storm. This third oxygen atom triggers, supports and corrects the body’s natural healing processes. It has been scientifically proven to have numerous health benefits, including increasing blood-oxygen levels, with almost no side effects. Ozone therapies have been used in many countries, particularly Germany, USA, and Russia, where it is used in public hospitals.
How does it work?
The way it works is simple yet elegant. When a cell becomes stressed by a physical/chemical shock or bacterial/fungal/viral attack, the energy levels are reduced by the outflow of electrons, making the cell electropositive.
The third oxygen atom is what makes ozone an unbalanced, electrically charged molecule that seeks to balance itself electrically with other materials that have a corresponding unbalanced charge. Diseased cells, viruses, harmful bacteria, and other pathogens carry such a charge, attracting ozone.
Once ozone is introduced, it reacts with damaged cells, neutralizes the damage, and reverts back to oxygen (its original form) and benefits the body with added oxygenation.
Ozone gives up one atom of oxygen which is negatively charged. Pathogens are positively charged, so they are attracted to each other. When that lone oxygen meets the pathogen, it destroys it because pathogens are anaerobic and cannot live with active oxygen. Ozone then reverts back to oxygen.
Normal healthy cells can not react with ozone or its by-products because they possess a balanced electrical charge and strong enzyme system. Ozone targets only diseased cells and pathogens. Ozone improves the body's intake and use of oxygen. Sufficient oxygen allows the body to rebuild itself and maintain the immune system. A normally functioning immune system naturally produces ozone and other antioxidants to wipe out pathogens, but when it is depleted of oxygen it can’t perform this task.
What does it do?
Most toxins in the environment and heavy metals have a positive charge. Ozone naturally binds to them because of its extra negative charge. These toxins are neutralized and flushed out by the body’s natural metabolic processes.
Inactivates bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa
These organisms are strictly anaerobic—they do not thrive in oxygenated environments. Ozone oxidizes the membranes of these organisms, inactivates them and kills them. Healthy cells are protected by enzymes, whereas diseased cells are not.
Did you know the diameter of a red blood cell is larger than the capillary it goes through? They have to fold to get through, otherwise they stack up, hinder blood flow, and leave your tissues starved of oxygen. Ozone restores red cell flexibility allowing them to pass through the vessels, allowing more oxygen to flow into the tissues. Increased tissue oxygenation and nutrient delivery improves the function of every cell and organ in the body.
Stimulation of oxygen metabolism
Ozone increases the red blood cell glycolysis rate. This stimulates your red blood cells to generate a compound called 2,3-DGP (2,3-diphosphoglycerate) which leads to an increase in the amount of oxygen released to the tissues. There is a stimulation of the production of the enzymes which act as free radical scavengers and cell wall protectors: glutathione peroxidase, catalase, and superoxide dismutase.
Powerful mitochondrial stimulant
The mitochondria are organelles inside the cells that produce energy. They are responsible for the utilization of oxygen in the cell - they are the energy source for every cell in your body. Ozone accelerates the Kreb’s Cycle in the mitochondria, increasing the amount of ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) produced. ATP is the primary molecule that carries energy, fueling most cellular activity.
Immune system regulator
Ozone modulates the immune system so that it functions as it was designed to function. When the immune system is overactive, as is the case with auto-immune diseases, ozone calms it down. When the immune system is under-active, ozone will stimulate it. This unique ability of ozone stems from its action on the membranes of white blood cells that causes them to produce cytokines. Cytokines are small messenger molecules your cells make to communicate with each other.
