What is ozone therapy for dogs and cats?
Ozone therapy is used to treat for infections, metabolic disease and cancer. Medical ozone is a gas created from pure oxygen which can kill viruses as well as bacteria and is quickly absorbed into the body. It is safe because the treatments do not affect normal healthy cells in the body,
Ozone is one of the most beneficial substances on this planet, it. has been used for human and animal healing worldwide, for over 100 years.
The treatments do not affect normal healthy cells in the body, therefore is one of the most beneficial therapies in fighting cancer. Ozone is also proven to be effective in the treatment of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast infections.
What is ozone?
Simply, oxygen. Three atoms of nature’s oxygen. It exists in a very active form for about 30 minutes before
breaking down into two atoms of regular oxygen by giving up one atom of singlet oxygen.
Where does ozone come from?
Nature. And nature is efficient. The new growth in the forests, the trees, the grass on your front lawn, and the plankton in the ocean are continually creating oxygen.
How does Ozone Heal?
In the body, ozone combines with amino acids and lipids to create compounds called ozonides.
Ozonides are what actually cause the biological effects of ozone. They can easily pass through cell membranes and improve energy production through improved oxygen utilization.
That’s why it’s so effective. Cellular degeneration often stems from an inability of the cells to use oxygen efficiently. So ozone therapy can improve the health and function of the body’s cells.
Cells’ ability to use oxygen depends on the amount of NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) that is available to them.
Ozone causes an oxidation reaction that creates NAD from NADH. (NADH is NAD plus 1 hydrogen atom.) This then provides more energy that the cell can use to function optimally.
Once the cells have the proper amount of energy to work effectively, tissues in the body can heal. Ozonides are also very stable, lasting from days to weeks in the body. This prolongs the benefits of ozone long after the actual treatment.
How we use Ozone therapy for dogs and cats.
At Phoenix Rising Integrative Veterinary Care, we utilize Ozone to treat a wide variety of conditions in pets.
We have seen positive results in:
- Skin issues
- Gut issues
- Bacterial, viral and fungal infections
- Age-related degeneration
- Auto-immune disease
Because ozone helps create healthier cells in the body, it can benefit just about any health condition. It’s also a
great maintenance or preventative measure to keep your dog in optimal health.
