Ozone therapy utilizes the element O3 which is mixed with you own blood then returned back into your body. Ozone has been researched to disinfect and kill viruses, bacteria and yeast. Ozone therapy has a direct systemic access to all the cells in your body. Making it an efficient way to fight infections.
What is ozone?
Ozone (O3) is a reactive gas that exists in two layers of the atmosphere:
1) the stratosphere (upper layer)
2) the troposphere (at ground level and up to 15km)
Ozone gas can be created using a machine in office for medical use.
Ozone is then mixed with the patients whole blood and given back to the patient. Ozone kills new and chronic infections. Typically the number of treatments required depends on the type of infection and its severity.
For more information about ozone in our atmosphere:
In the stratosphere, ozone protects life on Earth from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. In contrast, at lower levels, in the troposphere, it is an important greenhouse gas and air pollutant, which is harmful to human and ecosystem health. It is also a major component of urban smog.
Tropospheric ozone is a short-lived climate pollutant with an atmospheric lifetime of hours to weeks. It does not have any direct emissions sources, rather it is a secondary gas formed by the interaction of sunlight with hydrocarbons – including methane – and nitrogen oxides, which are emitted by vehicles, fossil fuel power plants, and other man-made sources.
Strategies to prevent the formation of tropospheric ozone are primarily based on methane reductions and cutting the levels of atmospheric pollution arising from man-made sources, such as agriculture and fossil fuel production and distribution.
Stratospheric ozone is a naturally-occurring gas that filters the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This is typically regarded as 'good' ozone since it reduces the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV-B) radiation. A diminished ozone layer allows more radiation to reach the Earth's surface. Excessive exposure to UV-B at the surface of the earth has been shown to cause harmful effects in plants and animals. Absorption of UV-B by ozone in the stratosphere reduces the amount of UV-B reaching the earth's surface and also generates heat that plays a role in maintaining the temperature structure of the atmosphere.
Ozone that occurs in the troposphere is a much smaller proportion of the total planetary ozone and is regarded as 'bad' ozone since it reacts easily with other Molecules making it highly toxic to living organisms. Tropospheric ozone is known to have negative impacts on such things as crop production, forest growth and human health. Tropospheric ozone is a key component of photochemical smogs which are observed in many cities.
