What is Ozone?
Ozone is a molecule composed of three oxygen atoms that is generated by using medical-grade oxygen. Electricity breaks apart the O2 molecule, allowing for the single oxygen molecule to reform as ozone.
In the human body, ozone interacts with double bonds found in proteins and lipids to form ozonides. The unique properties of ozonides have the ability to penetrate the cell and reach the mitochondria. Through a unique chemical reaction called oxidation, optimal optimized energy production is induced in every cell.
Why is this process critical to your well-being?
Oxygen utilization enhances the efficiency of your body’s energy production. In every cell, you have an energy factory–mitochondria–that processes the food you consume to produce energy called ATP. If this conversion is performed efficiently, the body will have the energy it needs to carry out all of its functions. However, as this conversion becomes less effective, it leads to the aging process and chronic disease.
Decreased oxygen utilization causes degenerative disease through the combination of increased free-radical formation and decreased ant-oxidant buffering capacity. These factors ultimately destroy the mitochondria, resulting in the aging process. When mitochondrial decay reaches a critical point, you become sick. Therefore, to increase your quality of life, it is imperative to slow down the rate of mitochondrial decay.
To prevent disease and the aging process, you must maximize oxygen utilization, and this is exactly what Ozone Therapy does.
Ozone has been medically used for over a century in Europe and North America. The medical use of ozone has a safety record that is unprecended in the history of modern medicine. In a study by Jacobs (1) a total of 5,579,238 treatments using IV ozone were administered. Incidents of adverse reactions were 0.0007%.
