Ozone therapy is a treatment practice that leverages ozone, a colorless gas consisting of three oxygen atoms. Ozone occurs naturally in the earth’s upper atmosphere and protects the planet from the sun’s harmful UV radiation.
Medical researchers have explored the potential of ozone therapy and its therapeutic benefits in the treatment of many conditions and diseases, including cancer, Lyme Disease, mold toxicity, heart disease, macular degeneration, and other chronic autoimmune diseases. Animal and human trials have demonstrated the therapy’s efficacy in combating disease by reversing the body’s oxygen deficits and modifying the immune system’s response to cancer.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy for Cancer
1. Creates an Environment Non-Conducive to Cancer Growth
The human body – and all life – requires oxygen to flourish. However, cancer cells thrive in an anaerobic or low-oxygen environment. When starved of oxygen, cancer gains a survival advantage and is more likely to spread. Alternatively, when exposed to oxygen, apoptosis or cell death occurs.
By increasing the amount of oxygen near a cancerous growth, ozone therapy creates an environment that is harmful to cancer cells yet beneficial to healthy cells, leading to targeted apoptosis.
2. Enhances Oxygen Levels in the Body
Increasing the body’s oxygen level does more than prohibit cancer survival and growth. It supercharges healthy cells, tissues, and organs, supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Oxygen helps to replace worn-out cells, supplies the body with energy, and aids the immune system.
3. Flexible and Personalized Treatment Approaches
Cancer treatment is not one-size-fits-all. Every patient is on their own unique journey, with differing needs and wishes. Ozone therapy is flexible and patient-centered, offering several administration methods with varying benefits.
Depending on the type of cancer being treated, ozone therapy may be administered using one of the following methods:
- Autohemotransfusion: The most common ozone therapy technique for patients with cancer. The process begins by removing a specified amount of blood. The blood is treated with ozone gas before it is recirculated into the patient.
- Insufflation: A therapy typically reserved for patients who may struggle with other methods of ozone therapy. This method uses highly specialized equipment to dispense ozone gas into one or more of the patient’s bodily cavities, such as the nose or mouth.
- Injection: An approach only suitable for a narrow range of use cases. Injecting ozone gas is the most targeted method of ozone therapy for cancer treatment.
- Gas bathing: Another common therapy technique. Patients are placed inside a chamber, which is then filled with safe levels of ozone gas. The patient breathes in the gas under supervision. After a short period of time, the patient exits the chamber.
4. May Promote the Efficacy of Other Treatments
Adjuvant therapy – also referred to as adjunct therapy or augmentation therapy – involves treating a patient with complementary therapy to maximize the effectiveness of primary therapy.
Ozone therapy may be a viable adjuvant for patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Studies, including in vitro, animal, and clinical reports, have shown that ozone can potentiate the effects of radiation therapy and several chemotherapy drugs.
5. Minimizes Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress occurs when free radicals and antioxidants in the body become imbalanced. Free radicals are potentially harmful molecules that contain oxygen. However, because they have uneven numbers of electrons, they readily interact with other molecules in the body, setting off chains of chemical reactions. These reactions are known as oxidation.
Oxidation is a natural and normal occurrence that can have beneficial outcomes when kept in check by antioxidants. When the body is up against more free radicals than its antioxidants can handle, free radicals can damage fatty tissues, proteins, and DNA. Over time, this damage, or oxidative stress, can result in several diseases, including cancer.
Free radicals come from several internal and external sources. Some are formed during metabolic processes in the body, while others come from air pollutants, exposure to X-rays, cigarette smoking, pesticides, and chemicals.
Research suggests that ozone therapy can reduce and prevent oxidative stress by bolstering the immune system and normalizing the body’s organic peroxide levels.
6. Non-Invasive Means of Administration
Ozone therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that does not require an anesthetic or incision. This, in turn, minimizes the risk of adverse or fatal side effects while reducing recovery time, allowing patients to enjoy a higher quality of life.
7. Natural Treatment Option
Ozone therapy is a viable option for patients committed to a holistic and natural treatment pathway. Ozone gas is naturally occurring.
8. Proven Results
Alternative therapies and integrative medicine can be a minefield. But when a patient’s health is on the line, investing in proven, data-backed therapies is critical to ensuring long-term positive outcomes and preserving vitality and quality of life.
Both human and animal models and clinical reviews have demonstrated the potential of oxygenation through ozone therapy in destroying cancer cells, mitigating cancer symptoms, and lessening the adverse side effects of other, more traditional therapies like chemotherapy.
9. Reduce the Side Effects of Toxic Medications
The journey to well-being is not always smooth sailing. Sometimes, treatments may carry more risk than reward and come with significant adverse side effects that compromise a patient’s quality of life. Chemotherapy, for example, has a long list of side effects, including:
- Severe fatigue
- Nausea and vomiting
- Easy bruising and bleeding
Data has shown that ozone therapy can reduce side effects, particularly fatigue, in cancer patients with no significant side effects of its own.
10. Strengthens the Immune System
Mononuclear blood cells play a vital role in the immune system. When the body becomes infected or cancerous, mononuclear blood cells generate cytokines. These act as messengers that communicate with other cells. Some cytokines are antiviral, others induce inflammation, and some have anti-tumor properties. In short, the body needs cytokines to fight infection, kill microbes, control viruses, and destroy cancer cells.
Some cancer treatments leverage the cytokine response system. However, these methods typically involve single cytokines, resulting in imbalances that trigger side effects. In contrast, exposure to ozone encourages mononuclear cells to increase their production of a large variety of cytokines, mitigating the risk of an imbalance while strengthening the immune system.
