Mechanism of Ozone therapy

How Does Ozone Work?

Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa:

  • Ozone disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell.
  • In fungi, ozone inhibits cell growth at certain stages.
  • With viruses, the ozone damages the viral capsid and disrupts the reproductive cycle.
  • Enhancement of circulation:Ozone reduces or eliminates clumping and red cell flexibility is restored, along with oxygen carrying ability.
  • Activation of the immune system: Interleukin tumor necrosis factor (TNF) is released in the greatest quantities between 30 and 55 ug/cc. The production of interleukin-2 launches an entire cascade of subsequent immunological reactions.
