- What is ozone?
Ozone is a molecule made from 3 oxygen atoms. This extra oxygen atom charges it to react differently than regular oxygen.
- What are the benefits of ozone?
Ozone is antibacterial and antiviral. It also helps the body detoxify and can stimulate or calm down the immune system, based on the body’s needs. Ozone may also help with energy as it is a powerful stimulant of the mitochondria.
From Dr. Rowan’s website “Our immune cells naturally produce ozone in our bodies. Ozone is known to break up bacterial cells, disrupt virus reproduction, and destroy toxins. Ozone increases oxygenation and improves blood flow throughout the entire body.”
- What are the side effects of ozone?
Possible flu like symptoms (body aches, headaches, fatigue) gastrointestinal upset (simply from the administration of gas into the intestines)
- What is the difference between ozone therapy and harmful ozone in the environment?
Most of the ozone we hear about as toxic in the environment is actually a mixture of ozone gas and other toxic gases. So “ozone” is a term used to refer to a toxic mixture of gases. We use pure, medical grade ozone, which is naturally made by our immune cells. When there are pathogens in the body, it reacts with pathogens to create harmless water. We also give low doses, which are further diluted by oxygen, and have an excellent clinical safety profile.
