O3 is the technical term for ozone because ozone molecules are made of three oxygen atoms. O2 is the technical term for oxygen because it’s made of two oxygen atoms.
O2 in its gas form is what we breathe and need in order to survive. O3 in its gas form is never safe to breathe, but it has some astonishing benefits when it’s administered therapeutically via the bloodstream or other safe passageways into your body.
Here are just four of the benefits of O3 gas therapy:
Not everybody knows that it is possible for your body to misuse the oxygen you breathe in, even to the point of causing cellular damage. But when medical grade O3 gas comes into contact with your cells, it increases oxygen efficiency (your body’s ability to use oxygen for metabolism).
So rather than just giving you more oxygen, O3 gas therapy helps you utilize that oxygen to your ultimate advantage.
There are two major types of O3 gas therapy: systemic and local.
Systemic O3 therapy treats your entire body from the inside out. The biggest advantage of O3 therapy over traditional medicine is that while drugs treat the symptoms of disease and sickness, O3 gas therapy treats the root of poor health at the cellular level.
Local O3 therapy treatments address a specific area of the body such as the limbs, ears, skin or mouth. More on that later.
Ozone gas is one of the most powerful antiseptics known to man. Medical ozone therapy has been around for more than 150 years, even used by doctors during World War I to treat and disinfect wounds. Integrative practitioners today use O3 gas to treat open sores and non-healing wounds in three similar local O3 therapy treatments:
An imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants known as oxidative stress is often the result of infection. Your body’s cells naturally produce both free radicals and antioxidants. But when your immune system is working hard to fight off infection, the free radicals can sometimes outnumber the antioxidants leading to long-term oxidative stress.
Short bursts of oxidative stress (like exercise and intermittent fasting) are good for your body and ultimately benefit your ability to fight off sickness in the long run. Just like exercise and a healthy diet, O3 therapy stimulates the Nrf2 pathway (which boosts antioxidant production).
IV O3 gas therapy (autohemotherapy) can help get rid of infection by boosting your immune system’s natural defense mechanisms to mediate oxidative stress. Many people successfully heal from infection after a few rounds of autohemotherapy in an integrative clinic.
The downside of this particular method is that it’s expensive and can’t be done on a daily basis (unless you’re willing to travel to a clinic and pay for the procedure and doctor every day).
Rectal insufflation, the other systemic O3 therapy, can help prevent infection from happening in the first place. It has the same immune system-boosting, oxidative stress-mediating properties as autohemotherapy, but it can be done daily and inexpensively. It also doesn’t require a clinic or a practitioner.
Some O3 gas therapy treatments (namely anything involving an IV) should only be done in a clinic by a trained integrative practitioner. They may be expensive, but they’re well worth the cost.
But there are several different O3 therapy treatments that can be done in the comfort of your own home for around $1/day. All it takes is the right equipment (we recommend Simply O3 for everything but the oxygen tank) and proper education/training (downloading our free guide is a great start).
Here’s a list of O3 gas therapies that can be done at home:
We’re O3 therapy experts, and we’ve seen all these benefits played out in the health journeys of countless people. Whether they’re suffering from chronic illness, looking to improve their athletic performance or simply trying to live longer, thousands of people have experienced the benefits of O3 gas therapy. Talk with your doctor today about whether you might be one of those people.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
