Ozone (O3) Therapy
What is Ozone?
Ozone (O3) is a modified form of oxygen, produced from oxygen (O2) in an electric generator. It is produced as a gas, with powerful oxidizing properties and multiple medical uses, both intravenously and locally.
Ozone increases oxygen utilization by improving the ratio of NAD/NADH. NAD is a major component of the Krebs cycle, the energy-producing system in mitochondria. Mitochondria supply energy for all cellular functions. Aging and age-related diseases result from degeneration of the energy cycle and a decline in energy production.
Ozone can help resolve infections from bacteria, viruses, and fungi by increasing production of cytokines, chemical messengers made by white blood cells to enlist immune support. It also stimulates antioxidant molecules like glutathione.
MIMI uses Longevity ozone generators for ozone therapy, which we consider to be very high quality and some of the best and safest available generators.
IV ozone can be given in saline alone and with both saline and your blood. When done with your blood, blood is withdrawn through a needle and combined with ozone and saline, and then infused back to you. This process requires about 40 minutes, or 80 minutes for a two-pass treatment which is blood infused in this way two times. This can also be combined with UVBI or Ultra Violet Blood Irradiation therapy to increase effectiveness.
Although ozone is not specifically a cancer therapy, it can support the immune system of individuals with cancer, including those on chemotherapy or radiation therapy, and does not interfere with those treatments.
Prolozone is an injection used to treat tendon, ligament, muscle or joint problems. The involved area is injected with a combination of procaine, glucose, vitamins and/or minerals to support healing, and then with ozone through the same needle. It can effectively reduce pain and inflammation, and help repair damaged areas.
Done as an outpatient procedure, this therapy helps with interstitial cystitis and acute cystitis. Introduce a catheter into the bladder, drain the bladder, and inject a combination of procaine, traumeel and saline, then clamp the catheter. After 20 minutes, unclamp the catheter and inject ozone. Treatment can be repeated several times a week.
Sinus and Dental Infections
Ozone can be injected along with procaine into the soft gingival tissue, at the base of the canine teeth for sinus infection, or at the base of an infected tooth.
Ozone gas can be injected through the nostrils into the sinuses, using a syringe without a needle. There is often an initial heavy drainage of mucus. Ozone helps resolve sinusitis due to infection or allergies.
Ozone can be bubbled into saltwater (saline), and this solution can be applied orally, vaginally, rectally, or applied to eyes, skin, or ears to treat infections. When refrigerated, it can be used for five days.
To treat ulcers or infection, the arm or leg is wrapped in a plastic bag, secured with a wrap after air is expelled, and ozone is then let into the bag. Treatment lasts 30 minutes and can be employed several times daily.
Olive oil, and other oils, can retain a high concentration of ozonides (ozone derived molecules) indefinitely. As a cream or stick, ozone in olive oil can treat hemorrhoids or rectal pain, warts, or fungal infection of the toenails.
