Ozone is a type of oxygen that when mixed with a certain medical-use oxygen becomes a successful treatment for some conditions. The medicinal uses were discovered in the 19th century and it was used as wound treatments during World War I.
This mixture produces anti-viral, fungicidal and anti-bacterial actions when completed in an environment that is heavily controlled, but the need for reliable equipment that could handle this ozone therapy was not met until the late 1950s. Since then it has helped to treat both animals and humans in many different ways, including arthritic and spinal pain relief.
Unlike the healthy cells that thrive in oxygen, disease causing bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi, including some Cancer and HIV microbes are mostly anaerobic; meaning that those microbes will not be able to survive in the oxygen. The objective is to completely surround them with pure oxygen in some form for an extended period of time. Many believe that this special mixture of oxygen and ozone is beneficial when administered slowly into the body on a daily basis over several months; bypassing the lungs but eventually saturating every cell and bodily fluid with it.
They claim that microbes caused by disease will not be able to survive in the oxygen and will no longer exist, thus ridding the body of disease. Many also suggest adding some type of steam bath or Finnish sauna sessions to your fitness regiment will help to remove toxins from the body.
Research indicates that all oxygen therapies, which include ozone therapy, work because it floods the body with single atoms of oxygen. They have active oxidizers and burn up pollution, waste products and microbes and clean the way that nature intended by naturally oxidizing away the toxins and microbes.
The purification of water is the major use of ozone commercially today; both the EPA and FDA certify that ozone destroys 99.9% of the pathogenic germs, while at the same time oxidize 99.9% of the pollutants that reside in water. As previously indicated, releasing oxygen into the blood stream is the primary way that ozone works and it is believed that a steam shower or a steam sauna helps the process by allowing the body to sweat out additional impurities.
Enhancing the blood circulation is also a benefit of ozone therapy, which can help to treat circulatory diseases. The clumping of red blood cells impedes the flow of blood through the capillaries, as well as decreasing the oxygen absorption because of a smaller surface area. Ozone will reduce or even eliminate the clumping of the red blood cells while restoring the red cell flexibility.
Oxidizing the plaque in the arteries allows the breakdown products to be removed as it unclogs blood vessels. Following up with some type of an infrared sauna or steam powered sauna fitness program will also help to open blood vessels and help to rid the body of toxins.
