Ozone, from the Greek ”ozein”, which means ”smell”, the second (active) allotropic form of oxygen, formed by three oxygen atoms (O3) – is a blueish gas, naturally occurring in the atmosphere with a characteristic smell, in low concentrations has the pleasant “smell of purified and fresh air”, but in high concentrations is pungent and intensely irritating.
The ozone molecule is a very active form of oxygen and forms when the oxygen is exposed to a high energy field, for example the ultra violet (UV) waves that create ozone when a wavelength of 160 – 240 nm (nanometers) hits an oxygen atom. Both processes combine the O atom with the oxygen molecule (O2) to form ozone (O3).
Ozone is very reactive and unstable, it has a reversible reaction which means it decomposes rapidly back into oxygen, is 100% ecological and does not leave any chemical residue after decomposition.
Ozone therapy is a form of medical ozone treatment. However, medical ozone is not only ozone but also a mixture of oxygen and ozone in concentrations and doses that are selected using an ozone generator. At Grandismedozon clinic, Medical Ozone is made from pure oxygen, by a state-of-the-art German medical generator.
Once or repeatedly administered in therapeutic concentrations and quantities, the medical ozone determines a beneficial and effective biological effect on the body. The therapeutic applications of the medical ozone are based on its oxidative capacity, capable of generating controlled stress that activates antioxidant responses in the body.
Once administered systemically (in the human body), there is an immediate biochemical reaction that generates other messengers called ozonides (ozone peroxide). They will carry out a series of metabolic reactions that will eventually bring out positive biological effects and benefits: oxygen supply to the body, activation of the immune system and its own antioxidants and free radical scavengers to protect tissues and delay aging processes, stimulating the regeneration of healthy tissue.
Medical ozone therapy has a cumulative effect that can be seen over time, and is considered to be a conservative treatment that does not disturb the body, providing an innovative solution to many health problems that conventional medicine cannot cure. It is very simple and varied and, in some cases, exceeds the results obtained by pharmacotherapy. This therapy has a major therapeutic potential and is characterized by the simplicity of its application through high efficiency and tolerance and practically without side effects.
The results are quite obvious and can be generally seen from the first sessions. Once the body tissues are adequately oxygenated, the body’s natural defense capacity is improved. Ozone therapy strengthens the immune system, improves concentration and memory, energy, and mental alertness, improves response speed and mood.
Ozone therapy enhances physical and intellectual performance, helps promote restful sleep, gradually reduces pain, increases sexual strength, improves mood, and is also beneficial to hair and skin.
As a rule, ozone therapy is considered a complementary medicine branch and is used as complementary therapy to other conventional medical treatments. However, scientific research has established that the application of ozone can cure a number of diseases. As a complementary therapy, the usual indications of ozone therapy are: bacterial, fungal and viral infections, blood circulation disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and acute or chronic articular diseases – including disc hernias. Medical ozone therapy enhances liver detoxification, making it very effective in treating fatty liver, viral hepatitis and those caused by excessive alcohol consumption.
People suffering from work-related stress or people exposed to excessive physical and psychological efforts are the excellent candidates for medical ozone therapy. Applying this therapy activates the metabolism of red and white blood cells, stimulating and improving the overall condition of patients. High performance athletes have been found to be able to benefit greatly from this therapy because it helps to recover and heal more rapidly from muscle aches. Older people are very receptive to ozone therapy because medical ozone has a favorable influence on cerebral vascular disorders, often associated with poor performance and concentration, incomplete awakening and dizziness.
Ozone therapy has also been shown to be extremely effective in the treatment of diabetes, and in the prophylaxis of its complications. Its effectiveness as a complementary treatment for cancer has been proven by extensive research, particularly through the positive effect it has had on the quality of life of patients. Last but not least, it is recommended as treatment with anti-aging effects due to its benefits to oxidative stress and disease prevention as a result of additional oxygenation of the tissue cells.
There were no reports of significant side effects related to medical ozone therapy. However, some contraindications exist and should be evaluated before treatment is applied.
There is a huge amount of clinical data showing the efficacy and safety of medical ozone therapy when this therapy is applied in accordance with specific working protocols.
As a complementary therapy, ozone therapy offers a wide range of benefits and is recommended in the following conditions: bacterial, fungal and viral infections: Lyme disease, chronic Candida, herpes, Epstein-Barr, HIV-AIDS, hepatitis.
In neurological disorders: multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetic neuropathy.
In autoimmune and degenerative diseases: cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, Crohn’s disease, Lupus, cancer, prevention of heart disease and strokes.
