Ozone Therapy: Immune Boosting, Anti-Aging Technology
Dr. Wiggy is back! This time he’s explaining a healing protocol that I’ve been having great results with: Ozone therapy. It’s not for everybody – it can be pricey and it’s time-intensive while you’re in treatment (multiple treatments are highly recommended), but it’s one of those things that I a) want you to know exists and b) plan to use over time to maintain optimal health. My goal is to bring you the information so you can decide what’s beneficial for you.
What we talk about:
- What is ozone?
- What is IV ozone therapy?
- What are the benefits
- Healing: internal infection, chronic injury
- What types of conditions is this good for?
- Who is it NOT good for?
- What are the risks?
- What to look for in a practitioner
- When is it ineffective – what does it NOT help with?
- What are the other types of ozone treatments?
- Ozone sauna
Why Ozone for Anti-Aging?
- Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system. When the immune system is overactive (as in auto-immune disease), ozone will calm it down. Conversely, when the immune system is under active as in cancer, AIDS, and chronic infections, ozone will stimulate it. This unique ability of ozone stems from its action on the membranes of white cells that causes them to produce immune related messenger molecules called cytokines.
- Ozone stimulates increased uptake of oxygen by stimulating the enzyme diphosphoglycerate (DPG). DPG enables the release of oxygen from the hemoglobin molecule so that it can be taken up into the cell.In the absence of an adequate amount of DPG, our cells become starved for oxygen.This is a common problem in diabetics.
- Ozone improves circulation. It does this by enhancing the flow characteristics of blood as a liquid. This effect enables more of the oxygen carrying hemoglobin to reach the capillaries where ultimately the cells will receive more of the oxygen they require. Many patients with chronic inflammatory conditions have impaired circulation.
- Ozone increases antioxidant protection more than any other therapy including vitamin C. Most people with chronic disease have deficient antioxidant defenses.
- Ozone is a powerful mitochondrial stimulant. The fundamental underlying cause behind all degenerative disease from diabetes to heart disease to cancer is decreased mitochondrial energy production. Ozone can often correct this problem. [Source]
