Ozone therapy is used to disinfect and treat diseases by limiting the effects of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa. Ozone was first-discovered in the late 1800s. The first uses were technological, the most common being the purification of water.
Ozone has the unique property that literally all microbes are susceptible to its oxidizing powers without the development of resistance. Because of these remarkable antiseptic qualities, it was used successfully to treat infected wounds during the First World War.

What is Ozone?
You may already know that Ozone is an alternate version of oxygen. Oxygen in the air we breathe is actually two molecules of oxygen attached together, or O2. Ozone is an â€activatedâ€ form of oxygen where there are actually three atoms of oxygen attached together, forming a molecule that is "O3â€. Ozone (O3) behaves completely differently than O2. Ozone is far more energetic and oxidative than Oxygen, which is what makes it so valuable to us for so many applications.
What Does Ozone Do? Where can it be used?
In chemical terms ozone is an oxidizer. In simpler terms it destroys bacteria, viruses, parasites, amoeba, mold, fungus, and also breaks down (destroys) harmful chemicals and impurities. It is 35 times more powerful than chlorine and yet leaves no harmful chemicals or byproducts behind, and if used properly and in the proper amounts, it is completely non-toxic.
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 â€wake upâ€ the immune system to make it function better.
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 canâ€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 RBCâ€s or Red Blood Cells. It also makes the Red Blood Cells more â€squishyâ€ 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.
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 virusâ€s ability to attach to cells. This is important. If a virus canâ€t attach to your cells, it canâ€t cause disease.
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 â€revitalizeâ€ 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.
Will Ozone work for me? Will ozone work for diabetes, arthritis, lupus, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and thousands of other diseases?
All practitioners who use ozone are very careful to note that ozone is not a silver bullet. It does not cure everything. However it has a fantastic combination of properties and effects that can correct and improve the basic systems that support health and life itself: oxygenation, oxidation, modulation of the immune system, activation of the antioxidant enzyme system, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal etc.
It kills almost all pathogenic organisms and yet is supportive and healthy to all human systems. Because it supports and improves all of the basic biochemical processes essential to human life it is thought of as being a great agent to use for all diseases, including aging (yes, some consider aging to be like a disease and therefore treatable). For these reasons practitioners familiar with how ozone works will use it for all degenerative diseases.
