Hearing the word “ozone” may first lead you to think about it in atmospheric terms such as ozone layer and how it protects us from the sun’s rays. Ozone is an energized form of oxygen composed of three oxygen atoms instead of two that we normally breathe. It is the second most powerful sterilizer in the world and can be used to destroy pathogens like bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, yeast, mold mycotoxins, and odors.
Ozone has 90 years of successful medical history with over 1 million therapies accomplished. The formation of ozone used therapeutically is created from oxygen tanks attached to a medical-grade ozone generator. The third oxygen atom easily attaches itself to pathogens and penetrates through their cell wall. This hole initiates the destruction of the pathogen through a process called oxidation. But, when ozone comes into contact with your cells, it changes the way your cells work such as activating anti-inflammatory pathways, inhibiting overactive inflammation, and improving the body’s antioxidant and detoxification pathways. Ozone can stimulate your own white blood cells to be more effective in fighting infections. Inhaled ozone is toxic to the lungs (like inhaled water), but it has significant effects when used intravenously and via rectal, vaginal, nasal, and ear insufflation. Also, it can be used topically to heal wounds. Our immune cells naturally produce ozone to fight infections, but it can be very beneficial to have a boost, especially when your immune system isn't working at its capacity.
Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) involves exposing your blood to ultraviolet light heightens the body’s immune system response to kill pathogens in your bloodstream.
Using both therapies simultaneously significantly increases the efficacy of each therapy’s benefit such as to stimulate the immune system, improve detoxification, and increase energy production to name a few.
