Have you heard that Ozone Therapy and heal and detoxify the body? We’ve all heard the tales of the “Fountain of Youth” and its magical properties. Which will not only heal you of your infirmities, but keep you young and healthy, forever.
Though the discovery of this fictional fountain will never occur… there are certainly real-life discoveries that can greatly contribute to your quest of maintaining youthful health.
Ozone Therapy is just that kind.
Ozone Therapy is a treatment that has been found to both heal and detoxify the body. Its use was first developed in the 1950s, and is now common throughout Europe.
Ozone therapy has gradually began to spread throughout America over the past twenty-five years.
As the benefits of its properties and use have been further refined. It has become increasingly popular throughout medical clinics in treating a myriad of diseases, disorders, and dysfunctions.
So, what exactly is Ozone?
The oxygen we breathe consists of a pair of atoms (O2), and is colorless. Ozone oxygen is composed of three atoms (O3) and has a blue hue to it.
In fact, it’s the ozone’s blue hue in our atmosphere that gives the sky its color. It is the third atom in O3 that gives ozone oxygen its remarkable medical properties.
Special application techniques have been developed for the safe use of O3.
In medical use, the gas produced from medical grade oxygen is administered in precise therapeutic doses—never via inhalation—and advocates that it has excellent health benefits. [Ozone therapy: A clinical review. Elvis, Ekta, J Nat Sci Biol Med. 2011]
Ozone oxygen is actually found naturally in the body, as part of the immune response. It regulates the immune system by calming it down when overactive (in such cases as auto-immune disease) and ramping it up when under-active (in cases such as cancer and AIDS).
Ozone also stimulates enzymes to increase the uptake of oxygen in the body. It improves circulation, and increases antioxidant protection, as well as stimulates mitochondrial energy production.
Because tendons and ligaments have a low vascular supply, their dysfunctions can be very difficult to treat and commonly become chronic cases.
The use of Ozone in treating these disorders has proven to be effective in reducing inflammation and chronic pain.
It does this by speeding up the healing process through enhancing the body’s natural ability to produce collagen (major component of normal tendon) to replace the damaged areas with healthy tissue.
In a study done on Achilles tendon healing, it was revealed that patients who received Ozone Therapy had significantly higher breaking load and tensile strength in their tendons than those who did not. After just 24 hours there was a difference in the body’s ability to produce healthy tissue in those who received Ozone.
As a result, the findings indicated that the Ozone Therapy had beneficial effects on healing.
In another study, 100% of patients treated with Ozone Therapy responded positively to the treatments. [Treatment of Enthesopathies with Peritendinous Injection of Oxygen/Ozone and Ultrasound-Guided Collagen therapy. Roberto Brembilla. Case Report Sep 20, 2016]
