Oxygen is perhaps the most molecule in the body, where it is needed for proper mitochondria functioning. Ozone is made up of three molecules of oxygen bound together. In this state, the molecules are highly unstable and must react with something.
When it is injected into the body or blood, the first thing the molecules react with is a cell membrane, creating whats called a “lipid oxidation product”, or LOP for short. This enzyme sends a signal to the mitochondria to simulate the generation of ATP.
Simply put, it’s like putting fresh batteries in a dimming flashlight. It helps your cells generate more energy.
Additionally, ozone helps cells put out more cytokines, or healing signals, while helping block chemical signals involved in pain and inflammation. For instance, an enzyme called transforming growth factor beta, or TGF beta, is found in joints and helps the body generate cartilage tissue. Ozone stimulates the release of these enzymes, which are beneficial for antioxidant protection and the healing process.
Because of these properties, ozone therapy, provides a way to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes.
Ozone has been shown to generate a remarkable decrease in pain, inflammation, and swelling in joints, muscles, scar tissue, fascia, and other connective tissues.
Treatment is recommended up to two times per week for general wellness maintenance, or as needed. Ozone is safe multiple days in a row in some instances. Please schedule a consult if desiring to receive ozone multiple days in a row.
