What is Ozone and How Can It Help Me?
Ozone therapy has been used medicinally for over 50 years with success and safety. Ozone is created when an extra molecule of oxygen attaches to the O2 oxygen we breathe creating O3. Ozone is what comprises the Ozone layer in our upper atmosphere of the earth. It is also the protective layer that prevents too much UV light getting through. In essence, without that wondrous ozone layer, life as we know it would not exist on earth. Ozone is also created when UV light interacts with mists from waterfalls, sea spray, and by manmade machines called ozone generators.
This type of therapy has been used for a variety of chronic conditions and diseases. Namely, autoimmune disorders, chronic bacterial/viral infections (Lyme Disease and Epstein Barr Virus), chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, chronic pain conditions, and as an adjunctive therapy in cancer treatment. Its effects include:
- Increased oxygenation of cells
- Modulation of the immune system
- Increasing energy production of cells
- Anti-oxidation effects
- Reduces acidity within the body
- Strong antimicrobial
All of these effects contribute to cellular regeneration and repair. This paves the way for ozone to be used for anti-aging purposes. Ozone has been successfully used to treat acne, cellulitis, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. It stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and repair of damaged tissues to create a more youthful appearance without the need for toxins, fillers, antibiotics, painful chemical peels and lasers!
It is a miraculous therapy that is both safe and effective. For more information on ozone therapy and how it may benefit you, please refer to http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3312702/
