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
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
Follow the Tabs above to see the possible affects Oxidative Stress has on our Major Organs
What Is Medical Ozone
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
Structure of Ozone Gas
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.
How is Ozone Gas Made
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 – 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 different Types of 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.
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.
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
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.
