The Basics on Medical Ozone

Here you will get an overview on what is medical ozone, how it is made in nature, how it works and why. Addtionally we explain a little about oxidative stress and what it is. How it can effect us and the difference in what is understood about oxidative stress.

When looking at medical ozone as a therapuetic agent, we need to know a little about oxidative stress. By understanding the different qualities of oxidative stress. We can understand the secrets into how and why medical ozone is so effective in treating the human body.

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 .

Life style choices we make are often the reasons for induced Oxidative Stress on our bodies

Our sleeping patterns and how we deal with our stress and how we manage our stress contribute to Oxidative Stress

From the cosmos, to the Sun, cellular devices to WiFi create a range of Radiation that are environmental factors that give rise to Oxidative Stress

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)

Therapeutic Properties of Medical Ozone

Anti-Bacterial
Anti-Viral
Anti-Fungicidal
Anti – Parasitic

Activates the Red Blood Cell Metabolism (RBC)
Improves blood circulation and Increases unbound oxygen to all cells, tissues and organs

Activation and Modulation of Immune Cells
Boosts and strengthens immunity and immune function

Activates the Antioxidant and Free Radical Scavengers Capacity
Increasing the bodies capacity to protect and prevent damage from Free Radicals

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.
