Ozone (O3) Therapy - "Powerful Bio-oxidative Healing Tool"

Simple Instructions - How to Apply Ozone Therapy at Home

Ozone treatment dose

Treatment dose is determined by ozone concentration and amount of time exposed to the ozone

Ozone Concentration

Ozone used for treatment is a mixture of a little ozone with a lot of oxygen.   The ozone concentration refers to the percentage of ozone in the Ozone /Oxygen Mixture. It is also measured in μg of ozone / ml (or cc) of the mixture. Since 1 liter (L) of oxygen weighs 1.4g, then for example:

1% ozone = 1 /100 x 1.4 g/L = 14 μg /ml;

3.5% ozone = 49 μg /ml;

5% ozone = 70 μg /ml.

Ozone concentration is determined by setting the flow rate of oxygen into the ozone generator - also, some generators have a dial/control function allowing the concentration to be varied directly at the generator, which provides the ability to further manipulate the concentration using a source of oxygen with a fixed flow rate.

-     The lowest flow rate produces the highest concentration.   Ozone generator manufacturers usually supply a chart indicating the ozone concentration for different flow rates and concentration settings on the generator (if it has this function).

 ozone concentration is inversely proportional to the flow rate

GENERAL EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT OZONE CONCENTRATIONS

30 to 55 ug/ml

(< ~3.5%)

At this concentration level the 3 main health restoring properties of ozone, dealing with diminished oxygen levels and a compromised immune system are:

•   Oxidative influence on the oxygen metabolism

i.e. Enhanced ATP production is important with stroke and burns - decreasesswelling at injured site, minimizing damage and subsequent scarring - if ozone is administered within 48 hours of injury.

•  Increases antioxidant enzymes in the body

•  Activation of immuno-competent cells to stimulate the immune system - Causes the greatest increase of immune system messengers interferon (50ug/ml gives greatest increase), Tumor Necrosis Factor(TNF) and Interleukin-2 (IL-2), setting off a cascade of positive changes throughout the immune system.

55 to 70 ug/ml range

(3.5-5%)

Exhibits a strong germicidal effect by oxidative destruction, useful for killing bacteria, viruses and fungi, topically and internally, which makes ozone ideal for treating infected wounds, intestinal infections, vaginal infection and topical fungal diseases

> 72 ug/ml

(>5%)

Shown to suppress the immune system and inhibit tissue generation.

 

Other factors affect ozone concentration.    House voltage and frequency variations, humidity and temperature of input oxygen, and the pressure (including barometric pressure). These tend not to concern the home user too much (unless perhaps you live in the Swiss Alps).

Input Oxygen Flow Rate (Liters/ minute)

Different applications require appropriate oxygen flow rates of 1/32 L/m (for ear insufflation) up to ½ L/m (for an ozone sauna).    As mentioned above, the lower the flow rate, the higher the ozone concentration. Lower flow rates also use less oxygen.

✔ Some applications require lower flow rates to be able to apply treatment for longer times - E.g. Rectal insufflation.

✔ Ear insufflation simply requires a low flow rate to prevent damage to the delicate ear canal.

✔ Using a low flow rate during insufflation reduces cramping.

CT Value

A meaningful measure of the amount of oxidative power administered (amount of work done) is figured as:

Concentration of ozone    X     Time Ozone is in contact with Body tissues.

A higher CT value is more desireable

Treatment methods and duration vary with each specific health problem.

The duration of treatment will depend on the severity of the problem - Body weight should also be considered.

General electrotherapy health benefits.   Used systemically and/or locally at specific problem areas of the body, its effective application has many benefits:

Detoxification Wellness / Healthy aging Pain relief 
Relief from insomnia Immune system restoral Anti-Inflammatory
Maximizes cellular energy production Accelerated tissue /bone /scar healing Stress Reduction
Muscle relaxation / rehabilitation Increased blood oxygen / circulation +++

There are several reasonably affordable electrotherapy devices available for personal use. The following electrotherapies are those that have received a significant amount of positive feedback:

*  Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) applies specific frequency patterns to the head area, with the following benefits:

Balances brain neuro-transmitters Relieves pain  Treats depression
Substance abuse withdrawal Relieves insomnia Relieve stress / anxiety
