There are five properties that make ozone useful for so many medical problems:
Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system.
In the case of autoimmune disease where the immune system is overactive, ozone will calm it down. When the immune system is under active as in cancer and chronic infections, ozone will stimulate it. This is because ozone stimulates the cell membranes of white blood cells to make cytokines such as gamma interferon, interleukin-2 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha.
Ozone stimulates increased uptake of oxygen
Ozone stimulates an enzyme called DPG, which enables hemoglobin within red blood cells to release oxygen. Diabetics, for example, have less DPG which causes a relative cellular oxygen deprivation.
Ozone improves circulation
Ozone enhances the way blood flows through small blood vessels, which enables the oxygen carrying hemoglobin to reach the capillaries where cells will receive more oxygen that they require.
Ozone increases antioxidant protection
Most people with chronic diseases have deficient antioxidant defenses.
Ozone is a powerful mitochondrial stimulant.
Since the fundamental underlying cause of all degenerative diseases from diabetes to heart disease is decreased mitochondrial energy production, ozone can often correct this problem.It does this by accelerating the Kreb’s cycle we all learned in high school biology, which is how the body converts carbohydrates (glucose) into energy aerobically.
Ozone injections for pain relief and tissue repair
Ozone is created for medical purposes with an ozone generator. The ozone gas can then be drawn into a syringe to be used for injection into any part of the body that has chronic inflammation and pain.
Ozone injections can be used for chronic neck or low back pain, shoulder tendonitis/bursitis, tennis elbow, knee pain from patello-femoral pain or arthritis, chronic trigger points in any muscle of the body and even in the hands or feet that have soft tissue pain syndromes. Virtually all musculo-skeletal aches or pains that have persisted for over two months will respond to ozone injections.
Pain relief is usually complete within 30 – 60 minutes. It works by the mechanisms described above. That is increasing oxygen uptake in the local tissue and speeding up local metabolism, which accelerates repair processes.
How ozone acts different from cortisone
Unlike cortisone shots, which provide anti-inflammatory effects but weaken the injected tissue due to its catabolic effects, ozone stimulates repair processes that promotes healing of the injured tissue.
How long does pain relief lasts sfter Ozone injections
Mike Bundrant says: My own experience was for a chronic patello-femoral pain that would occur when ever I squatted down and during heavy leg presses in the gym. The first injection into my right knee gave me complete pain relief for 4 months. It returned but at 70% of the original pain intensity and a second injection gave complete relief for one year. It returned at 40 – 50% of the original pain and a third injection provided complete pain relief that has lasted for the last 2 1/2 years with no pain during all my heavy weight training sessions and daily activity.
