Ozone Treatment


Ozone is a very energetic form of pure oxygen produced in nature. The new growth in rain forests and the plankton in the sea are continually producing ozone, which rises up into the stratosphere forming a layer which filters out a lot of harmful ultraviolet radiation.

Ozone attaches to particles of pollutants and toxic waste in the atmosphere, oxidising them and thereby effectively neutralising them.

Medical ozone can be generated by exposing oxygen to an electric field. The oxygen gas which has 2 atoms [O2] is split, and the atoms regroup into threes [O3]. This ozone gas [O3] is unstable and soon rearranges itself into oxygen [O2] again.

Medical ozone is also a therapeutic tool of great power, which can aid the body in regaining health.

The importance of oxygen

Healthy cells in the body need and love oxygen. Most undesirable micro-organisms are anaerobic, which means that they thrive in the absence of oxygen; in fact, they are destroyed by the presence of oxygen. Organisms such as fungi, parasites, bacteria, and primitive viruses like HIV, Epstein Barr, Coxsackie and Cytomegalovirus are often associated with states of ill health.


The body becomes deprived of adequate levels of oxygen through improper breathing, polluted air, inadequate nutrition and junk foods, and stress. This provides an anaerobic environment in which the micro-organisms thrive.

Healthy cells which have sufficient oxygen and nutrients, manufacture an enzyme coating around themselves which protects them against invasion. Oxygen starved cells are unable to produce enough enzymes to fortify their cell walls; they subsequently become weaker and more vulnerable.

In addition, cancer begins when a normal cell cannot get enough oxygen. If the level of available oxygen falls below 60%, a cancer response is triggered in the cells. In order to survive the cell begins to ferment sugar instead of burning it. This results in a greatly reduced energy output, which means that a proper enzyme coating cannot be maintained around the cell. The restriction on cell replication is inactivated, and the cell begins to make copies of itself wildly.

Heat is continually generated through the chemical action of oxygen upon carbon, which releases carbon dioxide for elimination. If insufficient oxygen is present, carbon monoxide is produced instead. Carbon monoxide is an irritant to the nervous system, interferes with organ functions, reduces basal body temperature, and prevents oxygen uptake by the red blood cells. This has the effect of debilitating the body, thus making it susceptible to infection and disease.

How does Ozone work?

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Dissolution of tumours
    Ozone inhibits cancer cell metabolism. In addition, ozone oxidises the outer lipid layer of cancer cells, thus destroying them.
  6. 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.
  7. 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

How is it administered?

You sit in an Ozone pod, which closes at the front. A towel is placed around the neck area, to prevent any ozone from escaping This is to prevent that the ozone gas is breathed in.

The machine is set to a certain temperature and ozone percentage limit, for a session of 30min.

A fan keeps the air cool.
