Oxidative/Oxygen Therapy

 

What is ozone?

Ozone (O3) is a naturally occurring gas produced in our atmosphere.  It attaches to pollutants in the atmosphere and destroys them, acting as an air purifier.

 

What is the clinical use of ozone?

As we age, our body loses its efficiency in the transportation and utilization of oxygen. Ozone therapy provides oxygen to the body, increasing the total amount of oxygen available to the tissues. It enhances circulation, stimulates oxygen delivery, activates the immune system, is anti-bacterial, antifungal and antiviral. Ozone therapy has been found to be an extremely safe medical therapy, with little side effects. 

 

IV Ozone (Major autohemotherapy): This method delivers ozone into systemic circulation, allowing every cell, tissue and organ to be exposed to the immune regulating, antimicrobial properties of the ozone.

Rectal ozone: Ozone is delivered into the rectum via a cannula, allowing the ozone to be absorbed directly into circulation. This is ideal for patients who have an aversion to needles.
