Our bodies have natural mechanisms to regenerate and renew themselves.
This is the single most important aspect that keeps us, young, healthy and energetic. However, we fall sick because our body’s potential to regenerate itself has been inhibited.
Fortunately, there exists a little known medical procedure that can help restore this vitality. It is referred to as Ozone therapy.
What Is Systemic Ozone Therapy?
Systemic Ozone therapy is a medical procedure that that uses a highly reactive form of pure oxygen referred to as medical grade ozone to trigger the body’s self healing mechanisms. The reactive nature of the ozone therapy powers the body to detoxify, thus allowing it to heal naturally. Although Ozone therapy is not well-known in mainstream medicine, it has been in use for over a century now to treat various conditions. Christian Schonbein discovered Ozone in 1840, and Nikola Tesla built the first US ozone generator in 1986.
The actual use of ozone can be traced back in 1902, as a treatment for middle ear deafness. It was also largely used to treat various types of infections during the World War I. Since then, various types of research and clinical trials have been carried out to maximize the use and effectiveness of ozone therapy. Benefits of Ozone Therapy include increased energy, immune support, cellular regeneration, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial activity, and antioxidant stimulation. Ozone helps with the rehabilitation of dysfunctional or damaged mitochondria to boost energy levels and push cellular regeneration in the body. It takes energy to get healthy and remain healthy.
As such it plays a crucial role in the healing of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cardiovascular disorders, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Macular degeneration, Lyme disease, and viral infections such as Hepatitis, Herpes, and Epstein-Barr among others.
Proper circulation and utilization of oxygen in the body is the most significant factor that contributes to optimal health and anti-aging. Ozone effectively optimizes proper delivery and utilization of oxygen by the cells.
This effectively allows the “cells to breathe” creating a fountain of youthfulness.
One of the areas that ozone excels in is pain management, with many clinical studies attesting its analgesic and regenerative properties. Ozone therapy effectively reduces and in some instances eliminates chronic pain by acting on pain receptors. Moreover, chronic pain is an indicator of poor utilization of oxygen in the body. Its ability to deliver abundant oxygen in those sections effectively combats and eliminates pain. This is the reason why it is effective in treating Fibromyalgia, Degenerative Joint Disease, Arthritis, Chronic tendonitis, Bursitis, and Fasciitis.
Systemic Ozone Therapy for Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a chronic rheumatic disorder, with its major symptoms being, generalized pain throughout the body. The pain is mainly felt in the muscles, tendons and ligaments and is often accompanied by various disabling disorders such as sleep disturbances, persistent fatigue, anxiety, depression, and chronic fatigue. There is also heightened skin sensitivity, prolonged muscle spasms, ashiness in the muscle tissues, and weakness in the limbs. Moreover, patients experience brain fog – a cognitive dysfunction characterized by short-term memory consolidation, impaired concentration and performance speed, cognitive overload and inability to multitask.
Although the root cause of fibromyalgia is yet to be established, it is suspected to be caused by a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Studies indicate that fibromyalgia patients have low levels of antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase, catalase, and superoxide dismutase. As such, the underlying factor seems to be the weakened natural antioxidant system and the increase in oxidative stress.
Treatment – Systemic Ozone Therapy
The greatest benefit when it comes to using of ozone is that it rekindles the body’s natural healing mechanism. Once administered in the body, the ozone breaks down into simple oxygen elements that contact anaerobic microbes and viruses. These microbes and viruses thrive without air. The ozone bombards the diseased tissue cells with oxygen, oxidizing them without affecting the healthy ones. As it exerts a transient, mild, and controlled oxidative stress, the viral infection and other disease carrying microorganisms are killed.
The end result is the modulation of the immune system and regulation of the antioxidant system which can effectively reduce or eliminate chronic pain in many cases. Systemic Ozone therapy is an affordable and safe treatment tool, which can be easily administered by a trained professional. It is important to note that, Fibromyalgia treatment should be multidisciplinary. As such, the use of Ozone therapy is most effective when combined with other nutritional, lifestyle, and physical therapies custom tailored by your integrative physician to achieve optimal results.
