Oxidation Therapy an Overview

Our Approach and Medical Ozone

Free Radical

Oxidative stress is simply an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the bodies ability to counteract or Detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by Antioxidants.

Your body is constantly using and reacting with oxygen as you breathe, while your cells produce energy. As a consequence of this activity, a highly reactive molecules known as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) are produced within our cells and are known as Free Radicals and Peroxides.

A build up of Free Radicals and Peroxides, produces a disturbance in the normal state of the cell. The reaction causes toxic effects that damage all cellular components, including Proteins, Lipids and DNA.

Reactive Oxygen Species can also be beneficial, as they are used by the immune system to attack and kill pathogens. Proposed short-term Oxidative Stress may also be important in the prevention of aging by induction of a process called Mitohormesis .

What Is Medical Ozone

Medical Ozone Gas is a mixture of Ozone and Oxygen. It is the purest form of Ozone Gas that can be used for Clinical and Therapeutic application only.

To make Medical Ozone Gas (O3), the primary ingredient is Medical Grade Oxygen Gas (O2), which is 99.99% pure.

Here medical oxygen O2 gas is convert into Ozone gas O3 by combining Oxygen O2 with one Atomic Oxygen

 O2   +   O*   =   O3

Oxygen                  Atomic Oxygen                     Ozone

 

Structure of Oxygen Gas

Oxygen Molecule1

Two Oxygen are connected together by a double bond.

The double bond stabilizes the two oxygen atoms together.

This creates a stable element called Oxygen.

Formula: O2

 

 

Structure of Ozone Gas

Ozone Molecule

Three oxygen atoms connected together via double bonds, however the Tri-Oxygen group is highly energetical.

The result is the creation of the element Ozone gas.

Due to the high energetic property of Ozone Gas, it eventually breaks down.

In doing so releasing Oxygen gas and an Oxygen Atom back into the atmosphere.

Formula O3

How is Ozone Gas Made

Make Ozone1High Energy Source = Lightning from Thunder Storm, UV rays from the Sun or Electrical Discharge from within an Ozone Generator

The High Energy Source is required to split up the stable Oxygen Gas, resulting in breaking the double bond and releasing Two Oxygen Atoms and also known as Oxygen Free Radicals

The highly energetical Oxygen Free Radical collides with Oxygen (O2) producing another reaction, resulting in the production of Ozone (O3)

Are there guidelines for Health Professionals using Medical Ozone

During the last decade, Medical Ozone as a bio-regulator, within the "Low Dose Concept", it's mode of action and pharmacology behavior has been well documented and published on an International Medical platform. There are specific protocols for Health Professionals applying Medical Ozone in regards to:
Medical Ozone Equipment and Accessories
Method of Application
Medical Ozone Concentrations
Treatment Management and Strategies

This was published by Ozone: Science & Engineering: The Journal of the International Ozone Association in December 2012
Ozone in Medicine: The Low Dose Ozone Concept - Guidelines and Treatment Strategies.

Are there different Types of Ozone?

Yes there are 3 types of Ozone.

Stratospheric Ozone
Where is it: 20-30km above sea level
How is it made: UV rays from the Sun split oxygen gas and produce Oxygen Free Radicals. These collide with Oxygen gas and produce Ozone.
Stability: The Stratosphere temperature is O°C. At this temperature Ozone is stable and enables the Ozone Layer to form.
Danger: There is no risk to human as the ozone layer is too high in the upper atmosphere to be of any health concern.

Tropospheric Ozone
Where is it: 10km above see level
How is it made: Tropospheric Ozone is a by product of Environmental, Industrial pollutants and Sun Light reacting with each other. As a result, the more pollutants released into the atmosphere, the higher the concentration of Tropospheric Ozone.
Stability: Tropospheric Ozone can exist for a period of 22 days and can be reduced by weather conditions. It slowly migrates towards the ground and is deposited into the earth.
Danger: There is a risk of Tropospheric Ozone becoming a respiratory irritant that can trigger diifculties breathing, asthma, bronchitis and cardiopulmonary complications. The Tropospheric Ozone concentrations and time period of exposure all play a part on how each person is affected.

Medical Ozone
How is it made: It is a man made gas, that is produced on demand via the use of a medical ozone generator and medical grade oxygen as the source to make Medical Ozone. The ozone generator uses the cold plasma discharge method to produce the pure ozone/oxygen mixture.
Stability: Has a half life between 45-55 minutes
Danger: It is toxic to the Lung Epithelium and according to international and national emissions values are fixed and Medical Ozone must never be applied or inhaled directly into the respiratory tract.

In the media it has been often reported that Medical Ozone is dangerous and toxic

The media generally report on high concentration of tropospheric ozone and its toxic affect, this conception is often confused when the media relate to Medical Ozone.

Tropospheric Ozone and Medical Ozone are NOT the same.

Tropospheric Ozone is made from an air mixture and that contains Nitrogen and Nitrogen Dioxides that are collectively harmful.

Medical Ozone when compared to other pharmaceuticals, is a clearly defined molecule that has a precise therapeutic range, with a clearly defined actions on physiological systems of the body.

 

Fear is not real. It is a product of thoughts you create. Do not misunderstand me. Danger is very real. But fear is a choice

Nutritional Modification (NM)

Nutritional Modification (NM™) applies a holistic approach towards the Food and Nutrition our body requires to recover and restore itself. NM™ examines the client’s condition and observes the circumstances surrounding the symptoms.

When NM™ applies these two principles the action to make changes enables the client to make realistic adjustments that are achievable.

The goal is to restore the body back into balance.


The difference between NM™ and Dieting occurs in the plan of action applied to achieve the bodies balance. Dieting requires a rigid “one size fits all” method, which can often lead to the client relapsing and feeling defeated by the experience.

NM™ is constantly monitoring the clients progress giving greater flexibility in the client's approach to Nutritional Modification. This approach assists in achieving a realistic food plan, whilst simultaneously keeping alignment with the client’s personal goals.

During a *(Product Consultation)* a range of responses related to the what foods you eat, how you eat, to the relationship you have with your food and eating habits and much more are collected and the responses are cross referenced and assessed.

A NM™ Plan of Action is created, which involves 1-5 phases for the client to complete and work towards achieving nutritional balance.



Supplement Plan

Supplements are generally prescribed when the body is deficient in nutritional requirements. The supplements support metabolic and cellular processes that aid the body back into balance.

Sometimes the client may require additional support even though they are not nutritionally deficient, and provide an extra boost to restore metabolic stability and balance.


How supplements are applied can make a significant difference how effective they are. Therefore, supplements given in a random and general one size fix all attitude, will often lead to a minimal affect.

Identifying the specific needs of the body in relationship to the symptoms often experienced can reveal what the clients individual needs are at that time of prescribing supplements.

The quality of the supplements used can also make a significant difference in how the body assimilates the micro nutrition. Pharmaceutical grade supplements generally have a lower bio-availability and are generally not absorbed so well. Thereby producing a minimal affect and require an increase supplement intake.

100% plant base supplements, who ingredients are synergized together tend to have a greater bio-availability, which often means you require a lower daily intake to have an affect on the body. Supplements that are plant based are assimilated in a similar way we assimilate our food, hence, enhance the supplements bio-availability and affect on the body.


During a *(Product Consultation)* a range of responses related to the foods you eat, what foods you eat, how you eat, to the condition and symptoms experienced are collected and the responses are cross referenced together with the NM™ assessment.

A supplement plan is put together that is correlated to the different phases of the NM™ Plan of Action.

 


Ozone Sauna

The sauna is prepared so the temperature and seat height is ready for the client. A temperature between 36°C to 40°C is used during the treatment and is adjusted accordingly.  The client enters the sauna and the doors are closed. A towel is placed around the neck of the client for comfort and creates a seal to prevent excess steam and medical ozone from escaping.

The steam and medical ozone gas are introduced into the sauna. Steam causes the skin pores to open and the micro capillaries dilate and come closer to the skins surface. The medical ozone steam mixture is readily absorbed through the pores of the skin. Medical ozone also has the ability to penetrate the dermal tissue and muscular tissue. The combined processes of Sweating, Induced Hyper-Thermia and Medical Ozone Steam Mixture, triggers our Cardiovascular System, Liver, Kidneys, and increases our Metabolic Rate and Heart Rate.

The collective response induces a deeper detoxification using the bodies natural processes to cleanse itself. Medical ozone enhances the cleansing by activating biological systems at a cellular level. The combined effect produces a treatment aids the body to eliminate toxins and neutralize the harmful effects of Free Radicals.

Generally everybody is different in their response to treatment. The most common responses post 1 treatment the client experiences a deeper sleep and feels more refreshed and energized the next day. Clients that use this method within a 12 treatment program, tend to see relief from their symptoms between the 6th and 8th treatment.

Total treatment time from start to finish 45-60 mins.
Actual treatment time 20-30 mins.


Ozone Insufflation

There are 2 types of applications:
1. Vaginal Insufflation
2. Rectal Insufflation

Both applications depend on precise volumes of medical ozone gas being administered at specific concentrations.

Vaginal vs Rectal Insufflation:
Vaginal Insufflation is applied to have a local effect on the Vagina, Cervix, Uterus and Ovaries. Rectal Insufflation is applied for local conditions related to the colon and rectum AND Systemic conditions that effects the body.

Ozone Insufflation is applied by using an Insufflation kit that is made up of an ozone reservoir bag with lock valve, one insufflation bulb with two, one way valves, one infusion line and disposable catheters.

Vaginal Insufflation:
A small catheter is placed into the vagina. It is inserted so the tip of the catheter is 1-2 inch's away from the cervix. Medical ozone gas is slowly introduced into the vagina using the insufflation kit. Medical ozone gas is immediately absorbed into the walls of the vagina. A volume of 150cc to 300cc of medical ozone gas is used per session. Once the procedure is completed, the catheter is safely disposed.

Rectal Insufflation:
Before the procedure the client may be advised to have Colonic Hydrotherapy or Enema the day before.

A small catheter is placed into the rectum. It is inserted 2-3 inch's into the colon. Medical ozone gas is slowly introduced into the colon using the insufflation kit. Medical ozone gas is immediately absorbed into the walls of the colon. A volume of 150cc to 300cc of medical ozone gas is used per session. Once the procedure is completed, the catheter is safely disposed. The client may experience sensation of having wind, this gradually reduces over a period of 10-20 minutes.

Whether it's Vaginal or Rectal Insufflation, Medical Ozone gas is readily absorbed through the tissues of the walls of the vagina or colon. When medical ozone come into contact with the surrounding tissues, it is immediately converted into a Lipo-Peroxide that are known as Ozonides. The production of Ozonides are then used at a cellular level, thereby activating the local micro blood capillary system and aiding the release of oxygen into the cells and tissue.

Additionally, Rectal Insufflation transports Medical Ozone gas indirectly into the Hepatic Portal Vein, which is connected to the Liver. This enables Medical Ozone gas and Ozonides to be delivered to the Liver and Blood Circulation, which is why Rectal Insufflation is classified as a Systemic Application.

Due to the properties of medical ozone gas, it's effect can bring relief from reducing Vaginal Thrush, Candida and episodes of Genital Herpes are a few examples. However, with Rectal Insufflation this treatment reinforces the systemic properties of Medical Ozone gas

Activates Red Blood Cells:
Facilitates the transfer of transported oxygen to the tissues

Activation and Modulation of Immune System:
Induces the physiological release of Cytokines and other Immuno-Competent cells

Activation of Antioxidant Capacity:
Activates and Increases the body's ability to reduce harmful affects from free radicals

Anti-bacterial, Anti-Fungicidal and Anti-Viral:
The ability to reduce bacterial, fungicidal and viral conditions

Generally everybody is different in their response to treatment.

The most common response post 6 treatments:
A client may experiences an improved quality of overall health and a reduction in symptoms, an increase in their energy and stamina, improved sleeping patterns, elevated mood and better memory recall.
Additionally improved digestive function and the ability to deal and manage their stress.

please note this is dependent on the severity of the conditions, it may take more than 6 sessions.

Total treatment time from start to finish 40 mins.
Actual treatment time 20-30 mins.


Limb Bagging

This procedure is generally applied to the arms and hands or legs and feet. It is mainly used for wound healing, burns, skin conditions or local infections.

Limb Bagging uses a specialized polythene bag that has two ports attached to it. One port is for introducing Medical Ozone gas, the other port allowing the excess Medical Ozone gas to go to the Ozone Destructor.
The Ozone Destructor is a specific piece of equipment that safely breaks down Medical Ozone gas back into Oxygen and is released into the atmosphere.

The clients limb is sprayed with water producing a thin moisture over the skin, this helps improve absorption by increasing the surface area and acting as conduit, thereby improving the rate of absorption through the skin.

Medical Ozone gas in introduced into the Limb Bag until the bag has shows some tension. At this point Medical Ozone is stopped and both ports are closed to keep the Medical Ozone contained in the Limb Bag.

Medical Ozone gas enters the skin via the additional water moisture acting as a conduit between the Medical Ozone and the skin.  The water moisture also increase the surface area, which further increases the amount of Medical Ozone being absorbed. The skin's pores also act as another entry point by which Medical Ozone gas can enter through the skin and into dermal layers.

Once Medical Ozone gas has made contact with the skin, it is absorbed through the dermal layers. It is at this point the Medical Ozone is immediately converted in to a wide range of Lipo-Peroxides, also known as Ozonides, which activate the local cellular metabolism and surrounding tissues.

The Ozonides activate the cellular metabolism, thereby affecting the cells and the surrounding tissue's micro capillary blood circulation. The net affect can cause the red blood cells within the micro capillary blood circulation to release oxygen into the surrounding tissues, within the dermal layers and muscles tissue.

The activation and modulation of immuno-competent cells within the micro capillary blood circulation and surround tissues is happening at the same.

Generally, everybody is different in their response to treatment.

The most common responses post 1-3 treatments is the client experiences a progressive healing effect. However, in cases of eczema or psoriasis the conditions appears to become more aggressive at the initial stages of treatment. As each treatment is completed, the conditions gradually slows down and the skin becomes dry and flaky. After this point, the skin appears to show a rapid healing affect.

In such conditions it appears that Medical Ozone draws out the psoriasis or eczema deep within the dermal and muscle layers. After the final healing process has been completed, the client experiences fewer relapses in their condition.

 

Total treatment time from start to finish 60 mins.
Actual treatment time 20-45 mins.


Ozone Cupping

This procedure is generally applied to specific points or parts of the body. For example on the back, thigh, forearm or neck. It is mainly used for wound healing, burns, skin conditions or local infections.

The procedure uses a specialized glass cup that has two ports attached to it. One port is for introducing Medical Ozone gas, the other port allowing the excess Medical Ozone gas to go to the Ozone Destructor. The Ozone Destructor is a specific piece of equipment that safely breaks down Medical Ozone gas back into Oxygen and is released into the atmosphere.

The clients treatment area is sprayed with water producing a thin moisture over the skin, this helps improve absorption by increasing the surface area and acting as conduit, thereby improving the rate of absorption through the skin

Medical Ozone gas is introduced into the glass cup and is continuously flowing until the procedure is completed.

 

Medical Ozone gas enters the skin via the additional water moisture acting as a conduit between the Medical Ozone and the skin.  The water moisture also increase the surface area, which further increases the amount of Medical Ozone being absorbed. The skin's pores also act as another entry point by which Medical Ozone gas can enter through the skin and into dermal layers.

Once Medical Ozone gas has made contact with the skin, it is absorbed through the dermal layers. It is at this point the Medical Ozone is immediately converted in to a wide range of Lipo-Peroxides, also known as Ozonides, which activate the local cellular metabolism and surrounding tissues.

Ozone Water & Ozone Oil

Ozone Water is purified water that has been saturated with Medical Ozone gas. Tap water or mineral water produces low grade Ozonated Water. Bi-distilled De-minerlised water is used to produce the optimum saturation of Medical Ozone gas into water. It produces the purest and sterile Ozonated Water possible.

The water is cool down to 3-5°C that helps to stabilize the saturated Medical Ozone in the water for an extra 2-3 days.

The apparatus used has an in-let and outlet port. The in-let port introduces Medical Ozone gas into the water, the gas travels down a glass tube and into a micro diffuser, where the gas is converted into very tiny little bubbles. This aids the saturation and absorption process of Medical Ozone into the water.

 

Ozone Oil is refined organic vegetable oil that has been saturated with Medical Ozone gas. Over refined and poor quality vegetable oil produces very low grade Ozonated Oil.  The most common vegetable oil used is Olive Oil, however, there are other oils that can produces a better yield and quality of Ozonated Oil.

The apparatus used has an in-let and outlet port. The in-let port introduces Medical Ozone gas into the oil, the gas travels down a glass tube Medical Ozone is bubbled directly into the oil. The process continues until the oil gradually emulsifies and becomes a "Vaseline" type consistency.

Depending on the quantity and quality of oil being Ozonated and the type of equipment being used, the procedure can take up to 3-7 days to complete total saturation.

Ozone Water:

It can be drank and gargled in small quantities for oral hygiene. It can be drank for digestive symptoms, kidney and bladder conditions. It can be sprayed or poured onto areas of the skin that require sterilization and irrigation for infected wounds, sores, cuts, bites and burns.

Ozone Oil:
It is applied by massaging into the areas of the skin or body that requirement treatment. It can be used for a range of skin conditions, acne, infected wounds, sores, cuts, bites, scalding and burns. It can be used for rejuvenation of the skin and used in therapeutic massage and sports massage for fatigue, muscle aches and sprains.

Ozone Water:
Once Ozone Water makes contact with the skin, tissues or digestive tract, it is absorbed either through the dermal layers, surrounding tissue or gut lining. It is at this point the Medical Ozone is immediately converted in to a wide range of Lipo-Peroxides, also known as Ozonides, which activate the local cellular metabolism and the surrounding tissues.

The properties of Ozonated Water are similar to Medical Ozone Gas. The main difference is that Ozonated Water has more gentle effect, mainly used for topical applications or when ingested. It effects the oral cavity, digestive tract, bladder and kidneys.

Ozone Oil:
The majority of Ozonated Oil is made up of Ozonides produced when medical ozone reacts with the Olive Oil. Therefore, Ozonated Oil is made up Ozonides and small traces of Medical Ozone gas.

The properties of Ozonated Oil are similar as Medical Ozone Gas. The main difference is that Ozonated Oil takes a little longer to take effect.  mainly used for topical applications or when ingested. It effects the oral cavity, digestive tract, bladder and kidneys.

Ozone Water:
Drinking Ozonated Water can relieve symptoms of stomach cramping, reduce symptoms from food poisoning to cleansing the kidneys and reduce bladder and urinary infections.

Topical Applications generally improve the healing capacity and recovery from cuts, sores, burns and wound healing. Refreshing and rejuvenating the skin when washed with Ozonated Water.

Ozone Oil:
As a Topical Application Ozonated Oil generally improves the healing capacity and recovery from cuts, sores, burns and wound healing. It can be effective in treating a wide range of skin conditions, enabling recover and reducing the amount of episodes experienced.

Ozonated Oil can also be used for Massage reduces muscle cramping, aches and pains. Clients often experience an improvement in energy levels.
