Ozone is a naturally occurring molecule, it is relatively unstable but very powerful. Ozone forms ozonides in biological systems. Here we must remember that in the human body free radicals are not formed when medical ozone is used. Ozone therapy activates the mechanism of energy production by the production of ozonides.
Studies have shown a 40% increase in total production of ATP when cells are exposed to ozonides. Other studies have confirmed that ozone therapy increases the reduced ratio of the oxidized form of coenzyme NAD to its reduced form of NADH, found in patients and the elderly.
Remember, it is not the amount of oxygen that you breathe, but what gets into the mitochondria.
Under the influence of ozonides, mononuclear cells increase the production of cytokines, which are a means of regulating the immune system. It is thanks to the action of cytokines that the body is able to control viral replication, kill microbes and kill cancer cells.
Ozone therapy stimulates activity and production of all antioxidant buffer systems. Nutrients used as antioxidants can not correct oxidative stress in the body since oxidative stress is caused by a decrease in oxygen consumption. Ozone can correct the problem by improving the use of oxygen.
One of the most attractive aspects of ozone therapy is its wide clinical application. Ozone therapy plays a significant role in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, chronic infectious and autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiency disorders. Locally administered treatment courses are effective for both bacterial and fungal dermatological infections, osteoarthritis, proctitis and colitis, intestinal parasitic diseases, cervical and lumbar disc disease, and so on.
Because ozone therapy is a therapy for a biological response, success will depend on the correct integration of all other methods, including acupuncture, detoxification, nutrition, hormone replacement therapy, stress management, allopathic drugs, etc.
