Medical Ozone Therapy Explained
The moment you hear the word Ozone, your brain compels you to think of an imaginary and pervasive barrier in the stratosphere, relentlessly protecting you from the harmful UV rays and making earth a much better place to live in. But, when you combine the terms “Medical” and “Therapy” alongside each other, your perception gets highly deluded. However, think of Ozone as a life-saving resident shield, and the term Medical Ozone Therapy is no different.
Ozone Therapy uses Ozone (O3), which is an energized form of Oxygen (O2) to treat lethal and degenerative diseases, some of which include Alzheimer’s disease, Cancer, AIDS, herpes and more. The concept has failed to gain recognition following FDA’s lack of approval claiming that Ozone is a highly toxic gas. It has never found a safe and demonstrated application in any medical therapy so far, so they claim. However, Ozone Therapy has found profound recognition in many countries across Europe, Asia and Latin America. With the lowest level of side-effects (0.00005), it stands distinctively as the one of the most remarkable advancement in medical history in almost a century of use. No offence FDA, whatsoever.
If some reliable sources are to be believed, another prime reason for attenuation of this conception is the relatively moderate cost and production of Medical ozone units. Apparently, FDA committee representatives are from all leading pharmaceutical companies. Hence, rhetorically speaking, how can you expect FDA to dig its own grave by approving a more effective and cheaper product? Money often costs too much.
Anyway, so how does it work? Well, Ozone when subjected to ultraviolet light or electric current splits itself into charged O* particles, which are highly unstable and reactive. They are quick enough to oxidize substances such as bacteria or viruses. Thereby, ozone has found wide application in different water-purification techniques as well.
This is exactly the principle which is used in treatment of highly degenerative diseases. According to Dr. Otto Warburg (Ph.D., Nobel Prize winner, 1966), cancer cells live on fermentation rather than respiration and hence, the absence of oxygen at the cellular level is the prime reason for their growth. Subsequently, there has also been laboratory evidence to the above mentioned hypothesis.
By oxidizing blood, harmful bacteria and viruses can and are easily removed. Ozone therapy has been proven to be effective on lethal diseases like Cancer and AIDS. Ozone is injected into the body either through rectal or vaginal insufflation [in which ozone gas is absorbed into the body through major arteries in the rectal or vaginal caveties] and the other method isautohemotherapy, which involves oxidation of blood by removing it from the patient’s body, mixing it with ozone and injecting it back. As ozone affects only organic tissues and materials, itdestroys only the harmful bacteria and viruses present in the body [more on this below]. It does no harm to the blood tissues as oxygen is abudant in those areas. It attaches itself to the toxic materials present in the body, making them inactive and carrying them safely out of the body. The harmful cells are soon dissolved due to their inability to protect themselves from this natural oxident and flushed out of the system as well.
The bottom-line on ozone therapy:
However, the use of ozone in medical treatment would be highly debatable as the toxicity of the ozone is something which can be intangibly overlooked. Inhalation of ozone can trigger some deleterious effects on the respiratory tract and lungs, none fatal but uncomfortable. Induction of ozone in blood triggers production of ROS (reactive oxygen species) which help the immune system in attacking and subduing foreign invasion and illness.
Nevertheless, the utility of any product depends on the usage rather than its implicit properties. Ozone, when used in appropriate proportion, subtle medical supervision and sophisticated machinery can be more effective than many other pahtological treatments. That being said, there has been less research into this field mainly due to lack of interest and acceptance regarding the effectiveness of this form of therapy.As a recent survey concluded, there have been 5 million ozone treatments worldwide and of which, a staggering 96% were acknowledged to be effective. One may wonder as to why so much cynicism then. After all, isn’t it better to light a candle than to curse the darkness?
