What is OzoneTherapy and How Does Ozone Therapy Work?

You may remember from high school chemistry that Ozone, (O3), is an energized form of oxygen which contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms (O2) we need to breathe. Most commonly, we experience Ozone (O3) as that fresh, clean smell after a summer lightning storm passes. 

What’s great about Ozone is that it is one of the most powerful and highly effective sterilizers available. It is inexpensive to produce and can be used to destroy molds, viruses, bacteria, pathogens and odors. It has been used around the world since the early 1900’s to treat illnesses, infections, and many diseases. 

Ozone Therapies used at Renew Total Body Wellness are designed to increase the amount of oxygen in the body to help improve the body’s respiration, detoxification, and metabolism. Every cell in the body must have the proper amounts of oxygen to produce the energy to do its job and keep the body healthy. As atmospheric oxygen levels around the world have decreased due to pollution and deforestation, people have just naturally become more toxic and less effective at fighting off diseases and pathogens. Oxygen has a natural antibiotic, antiviral, and antifungal effect, and Ozone Therapy is an efficient way to deliver more oxygen into the body, improving cellular respiration, healing, and helping avoid the onset of disease.

How Does Ozone Help Healing?

  1. Until commercially mass-produced antibiotics came into favor, Ozone was one of the best solutions for killing germs, bacteria, viruses, parasites, molds, and diseases. It does so because the third oxygen atom is highly reactive and easily attaches itself to molecules and “Oxidizes” them. Due to its extra negative ion charge, Ozone is able to bind with positively charged toxins and neutralize them into something that can no longer harmfully affect our bodies. Then the body is able to easily remove them. Ozone’s detoxifying effect with elements like heavy metals has made ozone therapy very popular in functional medicine practices wanting to help rid patients of heavy metal poisoning.  

For pathogens, viruses, molds, and bacteria, the oxidation process effectively ruptures the pathogen’s cell wall and that cell then dies off. Unlike antibiotics, there is no known resistance of any pathogens to the killing power of oxidation. An added benefit of ozone’s cohesive nature is that once it gives up its third Oxygen molecule, the remaining O2 nourishes the human body cells or is simply released back into the atmosphere, thus having no harmful side effects to the environment, gut, or body. Used in external settings to clean facilities or water of bacteria, viruses, molds and pathogens, Ozone has been found to be 4,500 times as powerful as using bleach. And unlike bleach, it is non-toxic to the body.

At a cellular level, Ozone helps improve the function of the mitochondria, which are the energy-producing organelles inside each living cell. Patients receiving Ozone Therapy uniformly report an increase in energy as their cells start producing that energy more efficiently due to an increase in available cellular oxygen.

In the case of blood cells, Ozone Therapy helps the blood cells flow throughout the body, improving circulation, oxygenation, cell motility and elimination of waste products from the blood. This is a key function in helping improve heart, lung, and hematologic conditions.

Uses of Ozone Therapy

Ozone Therapies are safe, effective, and non-toxic to the body. Some of the conditions which have been found to respond favorably to Ozone Therapy include:

  • Bacterial Infections
  • Flu and Viruses
  • Leaky Gut/Colitis
  • Lyme Disease
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Shingles/Herpes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
  • Cancer
  • COPD

Ozone Therapy Modalities

Ozone can be administered through IV Infusions, direct injections, topically, or via insufflation. The most common use at Renew Total Body Wellness is through IV Infusions. This protocol jumpstarts the body’s detoxification ability, raising the immune response and speeds the healing process, given protocol compliance.

If you have questions on how Ozone Therapy can help you with one of the conditions listed above or simply want to see if Ozone Therapy is a good fit for your Healthcare Plan, please give us a call today. 

We look forward to helping your body fight off the effects of viruses, bacteria and parasites using Ozone Therapy.

To Your Health!
