The use of oxygen in treatments has been a part of medical curiosity for over a century. Many doctors have speculated and eventually proven oxygen to be an effective killer of many harmful cells, including cancer cells.
Ozone is a highly active form of oxygen which has highly active effects on viruses and other harmful agents. It’s one of nature’s most potent antioxidants, first developed in Germany in the early 1950’s.
Today, ozone is commonly used in Europe and America to treat a variety of diseases, such as cancer, acute and chronic viral diseases, ulcers, infected wounds, gangrenes, burns, inflammatory bowel disease, vascular disease, ulcerative colitis and has found its way into many forms of cancer treatment.
It helps reduce inflammations that can be found in tumour markers.
How Does It Work?
Ozone produces oxidative stress and can kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi and increase blood circulation. The latter effect can be used in cancer therapy in combination with other procedures.
Low-oxygen cancer cells are usually less sensitive to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The lack of oxygen in tumours also leads to the increased formation of cancer vessels and makes the cancer cells more aggressive.
In some studies, ozone therapy has been shown to increase the oxygen concentration in tumors. This effect could be used to make standard methods more effective.
