Ozone is a form of tri-atomic oxygen (also known as active oxygen). It can be delivered through several methods, including through an IV line directly into the blood, intra-articular, injected into the tissues or in scars, modified inhalation, skin, insufflations. There are numerous studies showing the benefit of IV ozone therapy, one very good resource is the webpage of the manufacturer of the machine we are using, the German machine OZON 2000.
The key to the treatment and prevention of disease and aging is optimum oxygen utilization. Decreased oxygen utilization exerts its effects by causing a defective mitochondrial function and a decrease in the NAD/NADH ratio. This decrease leads to the excessive free radical production that produces the pathology resulting in organ breakdown, inability. to fight infections, degenerative disease, and aging.
The difference between you at 20 and you at 70 is the efficiency at which you utilize oxygen and how well your mitochondria function.
What should I expect: the treatment requires that approx. 200 ml of blood be withdrawn in a sterile glass bottle, which is enriched at increased pressure with a pure ozone-oxygen mix and then re-introduced through the vein.
This method additionally delivers a substantial amount of oxygen into the blood not relying on the lungs or the ability of the blood to carry oxygen.
The treatment can be done as a “one pass” that takes about 15 min (MAH or Hyperbaric Ozone Major Autohemotherapy) or multiple passes, delivering increased amounts of oxygen to the blood (HOT High-dose Ozone Autohemotherapy)
Sometimes HOT is not recommended due to veins being weak/sensitive or other medical conditions. In any case, an initial series of treatments followed by maintenance is recommended. As with most wellness treatments, changing diet, lifestyle, or adding other therapies will enhance the results.
Other ways of using ozone are local like nasal or ear insufflation, rectal insufflation, vaginal insufflation, and using a bag to deliver oxygen to wounds, gangrene, etc. A significant area of ozone use is, where ozone along is injected into joints, trigger points, scars, and tissue. This is an excellent way of controlling pain.
Ozone is not a stand-alone treatment but should be used along with other conventional or complementary treatments, diet, exercise, detoxification, hormone balancing/replacement.
How ozone helps: What does ozone do:
- increase oxygen delivery to cells in the body for days and weeks after the treatment
- decrease inflammation and autoimmune disease
- increase the ability to fight acute and chronic infections or even cancer
- anti-oxidant activity
- restore mitochondrial function (body’s energy makers).
Signs of poor mitochondrial function are: unable to burn fats for fuel (can’t lose weight), fatigue after minor exercise lasting a long time (sometimes resulting in chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia symptoms), sensitivity to cold, decreased temperature, chronic diseases, weakness, generalized pain, shortness of breath in absence of lung or heart disease, slow healing from illness or injury/surgery. Some of these are seen as “normal aging” but they are certainly not A healthy diet, intermittent fasting, exercise, stress reduction and monthly maintenance with MAH will improve mitochondrial function to younger and healthy levels.
