Ozone therapy

Ozone (O3) is a molecule consisting of 3 oxygen atoms. "Ozone" comes from the ancient Greek ὄζειν ozein "to smell", ὄζον ozon: literally "that which smells" - we know the characteristic smell of ozone from the characteristic odour after a summer thunderstorm.

Ozone is the high-energy form of oxygen (O2). While oxygen consists of only two oxygen atoms, the ozone molecule has a third atom. As a result, it is extremely willing to bond and reacts with numerous substances. O3 triggers oxidation, i.e. the combination of oxygen atoms with other molecules. Because of its reactivity and instability, O3 can inactivate micro-organisms, stimulate oxygen metabolism in tissues, oxidise certain pro-inflammatory mediators and release growth factors in platelets. By binding to harmful substances, it neutralises them and breaks them down into harmless substances.

The antimicrobial (germicidal) and fungicidal effects of ozone have been known since long.

The increased oxygen supply to the tissue and improved blood flow in the epidermis stimulate cell regeneration and wound healing. Scientific study on the use of ozonated oil for cell regeneration and wound healing.
Ozone oil has been proven to be effective against viruses, bacteria and parasites. The successful treatment of fungal infections with ozonised oil was investigated and confirmed in this scientific article.
