What is the Ozone?
Ozone is a molecule that consisted of three atoms of oxygen and it was discovered in 1939. Ozone was first used in water treatment plants in the city of Monaco in 1860 for the purpose of disinfection since this gas has a fatal effect on all microorganisms.
Ozone is colorless gas with a distinguishing smell. The ozone word has come from the Greek language and it means "A smell".
The first medical use of ozone was the treatment of gangrene and similar injuries of German soldiers during World War I. It started with Albert Wolf. Until the 1980s, various physicians and researchers applied ozone therapy. After 1980, scientific researches began to increase rapidly. Ozone therapy has a different mechanism of action than medicines, dramatically increasing the ability of the body to mobilize its own therapeutic mechanisms and to combat its disease. Ozone treatment is the application of a certain amount of oxygen / ozone mixture to the circulatory system or body cavities. This mixture can be administered intravenously, intramuscularly, intrarectally, and topically. The applications that have become classic in these applications; taking the blood of a person into an ozone-resistant bottle (about 100 ml), bringing this blood into contact with the ozone and returning it to the same person (intravenously). This practice is called Major Autohemotherapy.
The most extensive treatment used in ozone therapy is Major Autohemotherapy. With this treatment, red blood cells are able to release more oxygen to the tissues. This solution makes it easier to solve problems such as difficult-to-heal injuries and vascular occlusion. Ozone is used in the disinfection of infected skin wounds due to the lethal effect of microorganisms. Intramuscular (intramuscular) applications; the white blood cells (leukocytes), the defence cells of the human body, pass through and increase their ability to fight diseases. With this feature, ozone therapy is used in the treatment of many infectious diseases. Ozone treatment stimulates thrombocytes, also called blood flocs, to increase the secretion of growth factors of these cells. In this way new blood vessels are formed and the blood supply of damaged tissues is provided.
The life in our world is entirely based on the presence of oxygen. We can live for days in the absence of food and water, but in the absence of oxygen, life ends in minutes. We hav to get oxygen as long as we live because our body can not store like oxygen food. Interestingly, while oxygen is so vital, it also causes the formation of oxidative (harmful) oxygen radicals that cause diseases and aging. For this reason, scientists define oxygen as "vital poison". There is an anti-oxidant defense system that cleans up these radicals in our bodies. Ozone therapy strongly promotes this protective system, which increases both the amount of oxygen used by the tissues and contributes greatly to the clearing of the resulting oxygen radicals.
Treatment of difficult-to-heal wounds: Diabetic foot Open leg wounds Other injuries (dechubitis injuries) Inflammatory bowel wounds (chron, colitis) burns Bacterial and fungal infections Virus-related diseases Viral hepatitis Cold Sores Promotion of sexual functions Autoimmune diseases Rheumatoid arthritis Psoriasis Behcet 's disease Respiratory system diseases asthma Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Chronic fatigue syndrome Depression To increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiotherapy used in cancer treatment Treatment of age-related diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and dementia
Diseases in which the application of ozone is prohibited are extremely limited. These diseases are: 1-Favism (Glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme deficiency with an enzyme deficiency in the white blood cells) 2-When using excessive alcohol 3-Hyperthyroidism (overworked thyroid gland) 4-For patients with some degree of anemia and blood related diseases (hemophilia, hemorrhagic coagulation diseases etc.) 5-Chronic and recurrent pancreatitis (pancreatitis) 6-In newly developed heart infarction
