Ozone is formed when oxygen molecules (O2) split and re-combine 3 oxygen atoms (O3) into a single molecule. This is achieved by running pure oxygen through an ozone generator.
‘Ozonotherapy’ is the use of medical grade ozone, which is highly reactive in the body, to create a curative response. The reactive properties of ozone prompt many responses in the body and is useful for many conditions. Research has shown that:
● It activates the immune system in infectious diseases
● It improves the cellular utilization of oxygen that reduces ischemia in cardiovascular diseases, and in many of the infirmities of aging
● It causes the release of growth factors that stimulate damaged joints and degenerative discs to regenerate
● It can dramatically reduce or even eliminate many cases of chronic pain through its action on pain receptors
● Published papers have demonstrated its healing effects on interstitial cystitis, chronic hepatitis, herpes infections, dental infections, diabetes, and macular degeneration
● Increases Energy Production in your Cells
● Increases the Activity of your “Anti-Oxidant Enzyme Systems”
● Reduces the level of acidity of your body
● Kills Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi, Protozoa
● Kills Cancer cells on contact (in vitro)
Ozonotherapy was introduced into the United States in the early 80’s, and more recently is being used in veterinary medicine. Dr. Voulgaris trained with Frank Shallenberger, MD who is the founding member of American Academy of Ozonotherapy, and Dr. Margo Roman, DVM in 2014.
