The addition of ozone is a great therapeutic resource for natural medicine practitioners. Because we are all oxygen-deficient to some degree, our bodies can no longer clear oxidative “trash,” so it piles up for years, affecting every aspect of our biology. Improving oxygen levels in the body through ozone therapy is simple.
It has been found that more oxygen, when administered via ozone colonics, is absorbed through the colon than through the lungs, making it an extremely efficient method of oxygen treatment.
Ozone is a gas formed by three atoms of oxygen, which impart oxygen to cells very easily. By inserting a tiny tube into the rectum, we can deliver pure ozone in a humidified gas form, a procedure known as “insufflation.” After ozone is introduced in the body, it is absorbed through the intestinal walls into the bloodstream, restoring circulation. It then oxidizes plaques in arteries and restores flexibility to red blood cells, which clears capillaries, improving the body’s vascular network.It has been found that more oxygen, when administered via ozone colonics, is absorbed through the colon than through the lungs, making it an extremely efficient method of oxygen treatment.
Additional benefits of ozone include:
1. Increased oxygen levels and hemoglobin dissociation, which improves oxygen transfer to cells
2. Inhibition of tumor growth
3. Degradation of petrochemicals and heavy metals
4. Decreased free radicals
5. Increased stimulation of basic metabolism
6. Improved removal of herbicides, pesticides, and other harmful toxins
7. Improved breakdown of cholesterol
Ozone colon hydrotherapy can be used in patients with colitis, leaky gut, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and all chronic inflammatory processes, although it has been used since the 1950s in Germany for many other conditions as well. In fact, the German Medical Society for Ozone Therapy conducted a study in 1980, which found that side effects related to ozone colonic therapy were found in 0.000007%, making it one of the safest medical therapies available.
