Wound Healing

image001

Ozone heals wounds faster. It is non toxic, safe and effective for even antibiotic-resistant bacteria (MRSA)

 

3 methods of application:
1. As a gas
2. Delivered in a liquid (saline or distilled water)
3. Ozonated oils

 

When applied to a wound, ozone peroxides and ozonides are formed and stimulate wound healing.

 

Ozone (O3) has been widely recognized as one of the best bactericidal, antiviral and antifungal agents.

On the left are images of the effects of ozonated olive oil on clinical wound closure. The photomicrographs demonstrate the enhanced wound closure, in the ozone group, on the left two wounds (a and b) on the back of the guinea pig, as compared to the oil group (c) as well as the control group (d).

The pictures are not for the faint of heart but (Click Here) for an impressive look at ozone healing on a necrotic tissue after a bone break

 

The basic idea is that the infected wound (or fresh wound) needs a stronger concentration of ozone via limb bagging or ozonated saline or ozonated water. The liquids wash the wound and kill bacteria and viruses. After a day or so, lower concentrations of limb bagging or ozonated oils are used to promote healing. Stronger concentrations of ozone will actually retard healing after the initial cleansing takes place.
