As we age, we become increasingly prone to conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, atherosclerosis, dizziness, rheumatic disease, low immune response, cancer, and many other diseases associated with aging. On a fundamental level, decreased oxygen utilization causes degenerative disease through the combined action of increased free radical formation and decreased anti-oxidant buffering capacity. These factors lead to a destruction of our cells’ mitochondria, which are described as the ‘powerhouse of the cell’ because they generate most of the cell’s supply of ATP, which is used as a source of chemical energy for the entire body. Mitochondrial decay again generates excessive free radicals and deprives the cells of vital functions including the repair mechanism, membrane polarization, and enzyme synthesis.
Since decreased oxygen utilization is the primary cause of degenerative disease, the treatment of all diseases including autoimmune disorders, cancer, and cardiovascular disease is greatly enhanced in the presence of optimal oxygen utilization. Ozone therapy greatly enhances optimal oxygen utilization, and this is why ozone therapy is the current king among anti-aging therapies.
Ozone has five primary properties that account for why it works so well as an anti-aging modality:
As well, ozone’s lack of toxicity makes it a very useful therapeutic modality. It is safe to be used in nearly all individuals, with care being required in those with blood disorders and/or a lack of the G6PD enzyme, which is determined through a simple lab test.
Of course, ozone therapy is most effective when utilized as part of a holistic plan addressing nutrition, exercise, detox and other aspects of anti-aging wellness.
