Ozone Therapy is a medical therapy that has been used worldwide for over 50 years with dramatic success and safety. Ozone therapy increases the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone. Ozone (O3) is a modified form of oxygen, produced from oxygen (O2) in an electric generator. It is produced as a gas, with powerful oxidizing properties and multiple medical uses.
Ozone is simply an energized form of oxygen. It is created when electric or ultraviolet energy causes oxygen atoms to temporarily recombine in groups of three. Once inside the body, the ozone attaches itself to diseased cells. Cells infected with a virus are already weakened by being used as a host by the disease. This weakening shows up as lowered levels of enzymatic activity in the cell wall. The substandard protein coating is imbalanced and incomplete, and it is the perfect attractor for the extra oxygen molecule present in medical ozone.
Once the ozone attaches itself to the infected cell, the cell wall is further damaged. Either the immune system is activated to remove the damaged cell, or the apoptosis pathway is activated in the affected cell. Apoptosis is programmed cell death, the normal process of removing ill or damaged cells in a healthy body. In both cases the cell is broken down and removed from the body. Healthy cells with intact cell walls are not damaged. In fact, healthy cells get a boost in their ability to make more energy after exposure to ozone in small amounts. All substances are toxic in the wrong quantities, but ozone used medically is applied in quantities that help, not harm.
