All about Ozone treatment
Ozone (also known as active oxygen) is commonly known as a pollutant, but it is essential to life on earth as a protective layer over our planet. The special composition of Ozone – it consists only of oxygen atoms – medicine uses this to its advantage.
► Ozone therapy – a safe and riskless healing method
A patient is treated with an Oxygen-Ozone mixture during an Ozone therapy. The properly applied Ozone therapy is riskless. Ozone cannot leak and therefore not be inhaled. There are very seldom and if, only minor side effects. An Ozone therapy should not be applied short after a heart attack or an apoplectic stroke, during hyperthyroidism and when taking specific medications.
► What does Ozone effects?
Ozone shows a disinfecting effect and kills various pathogens. A healing effect is shown with wounds and skin diseases. Ozone therapy has a positive effect on blood circulation, which stimulates the self-healing process of the body and the immune system. As a result, there is an improved energy usage of the tissue. An Ozone therapy can be done in a combination of other healing methods or used for prevention.
► Oxygen the elixir
Blood transports Oxygen into every cell of our body. If the blood circulation is disturbed due to a sickness or due to natural aging – an Oxygen supply insufficiency of the body accurse. This may lead to an immune weakening. Diseases like metabolic dysfunctions are a result.
An Ozone and Oxygen mixture is used in the Ozone therapy. It is applied with a closed treatment system in different ways, that way no Ozone can leak uncontrolled and then be inhaled.
► Major autohemotherapy
50 to 100 ml of blood is extracted from the patient during this
extracorporeal autohemotherapy. The patient’s blood is enriched, outside of the body, with an exactly defined amount of Ozone, and is then reintroduced with an intravenous drip. About 100 ml of blood is extracted from the patient’s arm vein, enriched in a sterile bottle and subsequently infused back into the patient. This treatment achieves a high effect due to the activation of the metabolism in the red and white blood cells. The treatment is done one to two times a week and takes about 30 minutes. A therapy cycle contains about 10 to 15 treatment sessions.
► Minor autohemotherapy
A version of the major autohemotherapy. The blood enrichment is done in an Ozone resistant disposable syringe. 3 to 5 ml of the patient’s vein blood extracted mixed through shaking in the syringe and is then intramuscularly injected to the patient. Blood is taken from a patient’s vein and enriched in a syringe. The enriched blood is then injected into the patient’s gluteal muscle or under the patient’s skin. The immune system reacts to this with higher activity and production of antibodies. A treatment takes about 10 minutes
► Bag treatment
The Ozone application as a transcutaneous gas bath on extremities. A special bag is put over the area of treatment and closed off. Ozone is then infused for about 20 minutes to give a healing effect on the diseased area. Isolate the affected area is isolated with a bell jar. (Similar to a cupping jar). In the presence of a light under pressure a continuous flow of gas is pumped through the bell jar for 5 to 10minutes. The effecting Ozone improves the microbicide properties of the wound healing, the Ozone under pressure treatment benefits the wound cleansing through an improvement of the blood circulation in the tissue
► Water ozonisation
Water can simply be enriched with Ozone for topical use. The obtained water is effective and safe for an appliance, because the solubility of Ozone in water is limited and because a degasification practically doesn´t take place. Pure water can easily be enriched with Ozone. The treatment of skin diseases and injuries is an easy and safe treatment, Since the solubility of Ozone in water is limited and the capacitation max. is quickly reached. Applications as a spray or wound compress. Especially the disinfecting effect of Ozone improves the healing process.
Rectal insufflation with Ozone has an infection blocking and immune activating effect. It is used on infectious intestine diseases or injuries of the tissue. Gas volumes of 50 to 300 ml of Ozone are applied with a Bladder syringe and catheter. A treatment series of 10 sessions is often enough.
Infiltration with Ozone (1 to 20 ml volume depending on the size of the joint) Infection blocking and immune activating, especially on shoulder and knee joint diseases.
Intradiscal infiltration (Ozononukleolysis)
The injecting of Ozone into the spinal disc is done under control with a graphical procedure (X-ray/MRT) Ozone minimizes the water amount and makes the disc core shrink, furthermore, it improves the blood circulation and works anti infecting. This micro-invasive method is a riskless alternative to a surgical operation on the spinal disc with a success rate of 69 percent (18 percent of the patients need a second operation).
Ozone is effective on many complaints and diseases due to its wide appliance spectrum (systematic, local, in gas form or as a solvent) Ozone therapy can be done as a single treatment or in collaboration with other healing methods as well as common medicine, for healing, for prevention and to conserve and improve life quality.
► Ozone effects and indications
It’s not a miracle but the wide therapeutic index and the different appliance forms justify the many indications for an Ozone therapy. Many different effects are precisely produced in the patient’s body depending on the application form and the dosage concentration of the therapy.
- Oxygen release
- Activation of cell metabolism
- Immune activation and modulation
- Activation of antioxidant enzymes
- Anti-inflammatory effects
- Disinfection (fungicide/bactericide)
