Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeasts and protozoa

          Ozone has been shown to destroy the outer shell of most micro-organisms, thereby penetrating the cell membrane and altering the DNA. Sophisticated organisms such as human cells have enzymes that can restabilise disrupted DNA, whereas primitive organisms do not have this protective capability. This is another mechanism by which ozone selectively targets disease causing micro-organisms, and spares healthy cells. Repeated treatments of ozone therapy are usually needed, because certain viruses and fungi are more susceptible at certain stages of their development. Some micro-organisms are much more resistant than others, and will require more treatment. The viruses that contain lipids are more sensitive to deactivation by ozone Herpes, Mumps, Measles, Influenza, Rabies, HIV and the Chronic Fatigue producing viruses: Epstein Barr, Coxsackie and Cytomegalovirus.

Stimulation of oxygen metabolism

          Ozone causes increased metabolism inside the red blood cells [increased 2,3-DPG], which releases more oxygen to the tissues. Ozone also stimulates the production of enzymes, which act as cell wall protectors and scavengers of free radicals. It enhances energy production in the cells by complex biochemical reactions.

Formation of Peroxides

          When ozone is introduced into the body, it is broken down into free radical agents called peroxides. These have beneficial effects because they are attracted to weakened or diseased cells and react with lipids [fats] in the cell membrane. The enzymes in the healthy, intact cell wall prevent penetration by these peroxides. Thus the peroxides in ozone selectively attack only those cells which contain parasites, viruses etc, or are weakened by cancer or toxins.

Enhancement of circulation

          In circulatory disease, a clumping of red blood cells hinders blood flow through the small capillaries and decreases oxygen uptake by the red blood cells due to reduced surface area. Ozone reduces or eliminates clumping, and restores flexibility thereby increasing oxygen carrying capacity. Improved viscosity of the blood also leads to better oxygenation of the tissues.
Ozone oxidises the plaque in arteries, which unclogs and frees up the circulation. A vasodilator, Prostacycline, is also produced by ozone, which dilates the arteries.

Dissolution of tumours

          Ozone inhibits cancer cell metabolism. In addition, ozone oxidises the outer lipid layer of cancer cells, thus destroying them.

Activation of the immune system

          Optimal administration of medical ozone causes an increase in the production of interferon and interleukins, which launch an entire cascade of immunological reactions.

Effect on medicines

          The potency of any medicine taken concurrently with ozone treatment is greatly increased. The unpleasant side effects of toxic, but necessary, medications such as chemotherapy can be greatly minimised by ozone therapy.
