Ozone creates a curative response in the body. Our bodies have the potential to renew and regenerate. When you become sick it is because this regenerative potential has been blocked. The reactive properties of ozone stimulate the body to remove many of these impediments and enable the body to do what it does best ...heal itself.
Oxygen, like what is present in the air we breath, consists of two atoms of oxygen.
Ozone is simply oxygen with an additional "supercharged" atom of oxygen.
Ozone is found naturally in the body. White blood cells produce it as part of the immune response system.
Ozone therapy is a safe, non-invasive way to introduce additional ozone into the body. It is a time tested and effective therapy that produces little to no side effects and when used according to established medical guidelines, has a safety record that is unparalleled. To ensure the best possible results and for the sake of safety; ozone is best administered by a qualified therapist. Like everything in life, too much of a good thing can be bad for you! With ozone therapy it is important to receive the correct duration and dosage
At Alternative Therapy, a patient enters a hypothermic ozone spa much like the one pictured here. The chamber where the patient relaxes is flooded with ozone gas. The skin absorbs the ozone gas; stimulating the body's immune system.
Ozone therapy has been in use since the 1800s and in 1896 the inventor; Nikola Tesla patented the first O3 generator in the US, later forming the “Tesla Ozone Company.” Ozone was used to disinfect drinking water before the turn of the 19th century and was studied extensively since. During the First World War (1914-18) doctors familiar with ozone’s antibacterial properties, and with few other medical resources available to them, applied it topically to infected wounds and discovered ozone not only remedied infection, but also had hemodynamic and anti-inflammatory properties. Treatment with ozone has been proven effective, with minimal side effects. The use of medical ozone is well documented for its disinfectant properties as well as treating multiple diseases, infections and wounds. Ozone is known to treat as many as 114 diseases.
Today, ozone therapy is used to treat health issues and as a preventative to “cleanse” the body of potentially threatening viruses, bacteria and fungi.
