Ozonotherapy is the use of medical grade ozone, a highly reactive form of pure oxygen, to create a curative response in the body. The body has the potential to renew and regenerate itself. When it becomes sick it is because this potential has been blocked. The reactive properties of ozone stimulate the body to remove many of these impediments thus allowing the body to do what it does best – heal itself.
Ozonotherapy has been and continues to be used in European clinics and hospitals for over fifty years. It was even used here in the United States in a limited capacity in the early part of the 20th century. There are professional medical ozonotherapy societies in over ten countries worldwide. Recently, the International Scientific Committee on Ozonotherapy (ISCO3) was formed to help establish standardized scientific principles for ozonotherapy.

What Does Medical Ozone Therapy Do?
Benefit of Medical Ozone Therapy
Ozone works so well for such a wide variety of medical conditions and diseases that unfortunately many people don’t believe that the reported results could possibly be true. Well, they are. The reason it works for so many diseases and conditions is because it affects the biochemistry of the body in that it gets to the root cause of all diseases. What does it do and how does it do it?
1. Ozone modulates the immune system so that it functions as it was designed to function.
A weakened immune system means that you are vulnerable to becoming ill. It also means that if you become ill, you are less likely to recover if your immune system is weak. According to Dr. Frank Shallenberger MD those of you who are ill have a weakened immune system (this is guaranteed). Ozone has the ability to ‘wake up’ the immune system to make it function better.
2. Ozone increases oxygen delivery to the tissues and cells.
If we stopped breathing oxygen we would all be dead in 8 minutes or less. Why? Oxygen enables our cells to make energy. Without oxygen our cells can’t make energy, and without energy our cells will die. If our cells die, we die. Ozone increases the amount of oxygen that is delivered to the cells by the RBC’s or Red Blood Cells. It also makes the Red Blood Cells more ‘squishy’ so that they can do a better job of fitting down long skinny blood vessels that supply your tissues and organs with blood and oxygen.
3. Ozone kills bacteria and viruses on contact, and it inhibits the ability of viruses to attach to cells.
Killing bacteria is fantastic, as it inhibits their ability to cause disease. Ozone will also inhibit a virus’s ability to attach to cells. This is important. If a virus can’t attach to your cells, it can’t cause disease.
4. Ozone increases cellular energy production, making energy production more efficient.
You breathe oxygen so that it can be used to create energy in your cells. Quite often this process does not occur very efficiently, especially when humans age beyond the age of 30. Ozone helps to ‘reviatalize’ this process so that you can make more energy from that oxygen that you are breathing, just like fine tuning a car engine so that it can get more power out of gasoline.
5. Ozone decreases the level of oxidation in your body.
Oxidation is a normal biological process that is essential to life. Without Oxidation you would die. The problem is that oxidation sometimes gets out of control in the body, and the overall levels of oxidation get too high. It has been noted by researchers that all disease is accompanied by an increase in oxidation in the body beyond the normal limits. It would follow then that if you could lower the oxidation levels of your body back down to normal, this would help the body recover from any illness.
