- IMMUNE SUPPORT. Due to it’s highly reactive molecular structure of three oxygen atoms, ozone readily induces the body’s innate healing mechanisms AKA the immune system. A healthy and active immune system can recognize potentially harmful cancer cells and destroy them- our bodies know how to identify and destroy cancer cells, but sometimes we need a little immune support.
- OXYGEN. Ozone therapy gets to the core of disease by increasing the body’s ability to utilize oxygen, increasing metabolism, and improving circulation. Because cancer cells cannot live in high concentrations of oxygen and ozone increases the oxygenation of tissues, ozone therapy can be used to potentiate conventional cancer therapies.
- ANTIVIRAL. Many cancers are attributed to viruses such as Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV), Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), Hepatitis B Virus, and Hepatitis C Virus. Conventional therapies are now targeted against viruses with the hope of protecting healthy cells and minimizing toxicity. Ozone is antiviral and can largely contribute to combating these viruses. Furthermore, if you have a chronic viral infection, ozone can be used proactively to prevent the possibility of developing cancer down the road.
- REDUCE SIDE-EFFECTS. Ozone can reduce side effects from conventional cancer therapies. By helping the body utilize oxygen, ozone can reduce inflammation and improve symptoms of anemia; it can also help with sleep and boost energy.
