The different modes of action of ozone on a
living organism are now well understood. The production of peroxides
is responsible for the remarkable bactericidal and fungicidal
effects of ozone. The virus inactivation is enhanced by a peroxide
intolerance of weakened infected cells. Normal cells are protected
from the effects of ozone by enzymes in the cell wall - glutathione
peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase. Ozone stimulates
the production of these enzymes, thus enhancing the cell wall
resistance to invasion.
In addition, ozone has been shown to have a
measurable benefit on the uptake and utilization of oxygen with
improved glycolysis in red blood cells through the abolition of
harmful red blood cell stacking (rouleaux). In addition, ozone
stimulates and activates mitochondrial respiration and metabolic
All mammalian tissues depend for their survival
and health on an adequate oxygen uptake and therefore ozone would
benefit every person through optimizing tissue oxygenation. Thus
ozone has a preventative as well as remedial role. The application
for prevention would include increasing longevity, enhancing performance,
rejuvenating seniors, optimizing the healing of wounds, and stimulating
Ozone's therapeutic remedial uses are extensive
and growing daily. All bacterial, viral and fungal infections
are eliminated by ozone therapy. Heart disease, angina, arteriosclerosis,
gangrene, senile dementia, ulcers, varicose veins, arthritis,
ankylosing spondylitis, diabetes, all forms of cancer, Parkinson's
disease, inflammatory bowel disease, immune deficiency, allergies
and asthma are just a few of the conditions that are regularly
treated with ozone.
Ozone combines extremely well with intravenous
chelation therapy which is used to treat arterial disease and
heavy metal toxicity.
The therapeutic use of ozone has an excellent
safety record and no toxic effects have been observed from clinical
use. The use of ozone as a healing adjunct is well established
and is being vigorously pursued by many scientists and clinicians.
The benefits are predictable and without side effects. As technology
advances, undoubtedly new techniques will enlarge the scope of
the effective use of this versatile modality.
