Ozone Therapy

Ozone Therapy or Ozonotherapy

Ozone and other oxygen therapies have been used for over 100 years around the world for human and animal healing. These therapies continue to gain popularity, as scientists learn about the health benefits of increased oxygen in the body. Currently, ozone therapy brings easily soluble oxygen to target tissues, and it is being proven effective for treating viruses, fungi and bacteria, and for general health improvement anytime there is inflammation and damaged tissue. In addition to medical uses, ozone is a great disinfectant used for livestock water tanks, cattle embryo transfer, swimming pools, spas and the water treatment systems of over 2,000 municipalities around the world.

The procedure adds oxygen to tissue, which promotes micro circulation. If we can bring more oxygen into the body, especially into areas that are inflamed, we can alleviate that inflammation. We can also reduce cancer cells, because cancer doesn’t like oxygen and doesn’t thrive in an oxygenated environment.

Anywhere we use saline on an animal, we can use oxygenated fluids. We can flush the mouth before dental procedures and it gets rid of the whole biofilm of the mouth. It eliminates the need for antibiotics. Ozone therapy is also wonderful for infections as well as swelling, bruising and trauma. We can flush the ears, the eyes, and the prepuce (foreskin). We can use it on the skin. We can soak wounds. We can give it as an enema for an obstipated animal. We can flush the bladder in an animal with a urinary tract obstruction. Ozone therapy works for autoimmune disease as well, because it allows the mitochondria to work efficiently. When we give ozone, we’re increasing oxygenation at the level of the mitochondria. It’s amazing how something so simple – an extra oxygen molecule added to a cell – can start a cascade of repair. Since 10 percent of body weight is mitochondria, we should be feeding our mitochondria instead of shutting them down with drugs.

 

 

 

What Is Ozone Therapy aka Ozonotherapy?

 

Ozonotherapy is the use of medical grade ozone, a highly reactive form of pure oxygen, to create a curative response in the body. The body has the potential to renew and regenerate itself. When it becomes sick it is because this potential has been blocked. The reactive properties of ozone stimulate the body to remove many of these blockages thus allowing the body to do what it does best – heal itself

It activates the immune system in infectious diseases.

  • It improves the cellular utilization of oxygen that reduces ischemia (lack of blood flow) in cardiovascular diseases, and in many of the infirmities of aging.
  • It causes the release of growth factors that stimulate damaged joints and degenerative discs to regenerate.
  • It can dramatically reduce or even eliminate many cases of chronic pain through its action on pain receptors.

Published papers have demonstrated its healing effects on interstitial cystitis, chronic hepatitis, herpes infections, dental infections, diabetes, and macular degeneration.

 

 

What is ozone and how does it heal?

Oxygen as you know it makes all life possible. It’s the molecule from which all cellular energy, and thus function and healing, is derived. What you may not know is when “activated” through an ozone generating machine, oxygen turns from O2 (oxygen) into O3 (ozone).

Ozone contains three oxygen atoms, which react in the tissue as it breaks down to ordinary oxygen (O2) and a reactive singlet oxygen molecule that can combine with chemicals and other molecules. Free from side effects, this is an extremely safe therapy that works in a number of ways.

  1. It puts “extra” oxygen in diseased, cancerous, inflamed or infected tissue. Typically, these areas are low in oxygen, thereby decreasing the chances for healthy cells to survive and/or defend themselves. Upon injecting ozone into the bloodstream or a tumor, the O3 molecule breaks down again into oxygen (O2) and an oxygen atom (O1). The O2 increases oxygen in these areas, greatly boosting the body’s healing powers.
  1. The third oxygen atom (O1), meanwhile, negatively affects abnormal cells (such as cancer cells) as well as pathogens like bacteria, yeast, fungus and viruses. This ozone breakdown creates what is called a “free radical” – in this case the O1 atom. This free radical breaks through the outer “wall” that surrounds an abnormal cell or pathogen. Normal cells have a way of protecting themselves against this effect (via mitochondria), so normal cells get a boost of oxygen to help them heal, while abnormal cells and pathogens have their “walls” broken and die.

This non-toxic therapy can be used for most any resistant or degenerative disease process, such as cancer, antibiotic-resistant infections, and severe yeast infections of the skin and ears. It is also helpful in the treatment of arthritis, colitis, or any other inflammatory condition. Some of the effects include:

  1. Decreasing inflammation. Where there is inflammation, swelling, bruising, infection, cancer and trauma to the tissue, there are higher amounts of carbon dioxide within the tissue. This increase of carbon dioxide contributes to inflammation and pain. Increasing the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissue in the form of reactive ozone decreases inflammation, pain and swelling, and helps increase healing.
  1. Activating the immune system. Ozone therapy has also been shown to activate the immune system by stimulating cytokine production. Cytokines are “messenger cells”, such as interferons and interleukins, which “set off a cascade reaction of positive changes throughout the immune system.”(t). Ozone also promotes the production of glutathione peroxidase, catalase, reductase and super-oxide dismutase, the enzymes forming the cell wall coating; thereby enhancing cellular immunity.
  1. Inactivating bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa. Healthy cells are surrounded by an enzyme coating, which ozone does not penetrate, but bacteria and viruses have no such coatings. Ozone therapy disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell envelope through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins (peroxidation). In viruses, this peroxidation disrupts the reproductive cycle and damages the viral capsid. In fungi, ozone inhibits cell growth. Consider chronic otitis, which often has multiple organisms as primary or secondary invaders; this explains the efficacy of ozone treatment.

Homeopathic Successes

I thought I would put some successes using alternatives on our blog.

We had a lovely basenji come in with head trauma resulting in him stumbling, having a glazed over look because he was barely functioning due to the swelling in his head and possible slow bleeding, he could not feel where his paws were and was generally not himself.  We could not adjust him because we did not want to risk it in case he had a small  fracture so we used infra red therapy on his skull and neck and his whole spine and rear leg joints, and sent him home with instructions to use the light therapy twice daily.  We also prescribed some nerve support and homeopathic Arnica (trauma, bruising) and Hypericum(nerve damage).  On his return 5 days later he is radically improved.  We will watch him over the next couple weeks to make sure full sensation comes back to his legs.  You too can have homepathics at home to help in emergency situations.  I highly recommend the book by Dr Panos called “Homeopathic Medicines at Home”  I am sure you can get it cheap on Amazon, to get you started.  We just created some inexpensive kits to get you started too.

We had a little gal come in with her face swelling up from who knows what-probably a bug sting or bite-no matter.  The symptom is what matters in homeopathy.  We gave her Apis Mellifica and in less than 20 minutes the swelling appeared to be stopped but not shrinking so we gave her another dose and after that you could see the face coming back to normal all without the need for any pharmaceutical and in fact acting faster than an injection of antihistamine would have.  If the owner had Apis at home, she would have saved a visit to us.

A sheltie came in run over by a car and his leg was so badly swollen and bruised that you could not tell if it was broken.  In fact with that amount of swelling, it could indicate a fracture.   A few hours after receiving Arnica Montana, the swelling had RADICALLY decreased to the point where you could tell that in fact the leg was not broken.  So mom escaped from having to pay for xrays and puppy was so much more comfortable and went home to an uneventful recovery.  That one is from earlier in my career when I was just learning to use homeopathy in practice.  Emergency cases are an excellent way to demonstrate the power of homeopathy.

I was cured of hay fever and cat allergies over 20 years ago by a single dose of the correct remedy for me given me by an excellent homeopathic physician.   Some years ago I had a vicious bladder infection pop up out of nowhere.  Suddenly great pain, cramping; I had not had anything like that in my life.  I noticed my mental/emotional symptoms and picked a remedy that immediately calmed me down.  I also took Cranberry capsules for nutritional support.   By the time I got the culture results back, I had been symptom free for days.  In fact the Causticum had me feeling great in a few hours.  An antibiotic would have taken a lot longer.  So yes, the properly prescribed remedy does work.

Trouble with pets is that you cannot get the mental, emotional aspects as well as with people so that makes prescribing difficult.

My new cat, Baby, came to me with that terrible mystery condition of male cats.  He had a predisposition to have his urethra swell , hurt badly and make him unable to urinate.  He was cured of this condition and some other issues he had with twitchy skin, nervous and nasty attitude by finding his constitutional remedy and giving it to him.  He has since had it repeated as needed when he has symptoms, but he has been normal in the urinating department ever since.  We also keep him mostly on wet food as that is MUCH better for health than dry food.

I will try to remember to add more of these over time to encourage you all to start your own homeopathic pharmacy

WATCH CATS FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Pet Wellness Center

CREDIT TO: Paw Prints: Watch cats for weight loss

Paw Prints Heidi Bassler, veterinarian The Daily News of Newburyport Fri Sep 09, 2011, 03:58 AM EDT

If you own a kitty, chances are your beloved feline is chubby.

More than half of all pet cats in this country are overweight or obese. With this condition comes a myriad of health problems. So, if your cat is losing weight, it must be a good thing, right? Especially if Fluffy was battling the bulge, it seems logical that shedding those pounds should be applauded.

But what if Fluffy is not on a diet or exercise plan? What if Fluffy is mysteriously slimming down? This is a cause for concern because cats don’t typically lose weight easily. Almost anyone who has tried to diet a cat will empathize.

Remember that cats are small creatures, so small weight changes are important. Ounces are significant…

Be Safe With Online Pharmacies!

Pet Wellness Center

BE SAFE WITH ONLINE PHARMACIES! 

Hi Everyone,  One of my online veterinary news feeds sent me this from Connecticut Post (Fairfield County-Bridgeport:

“For many people, their pets are a part of the family. And when that family member gets sick, they want to do all they can to help their furry or feathery friend. But U.S. Food and Drug Administration said that, if you plan to purchase medications for pets online, use caution.

Though there are Internet sites that represent legitimate pharmacies, the FDA has found that there are others that sell unapproved pet drugs and counterfeit pet products, make fraudulent claims, dispense prescription drugs without requiring a prescription, and sell expired drugs. Any of these practices could mean that the products you are buying could be unsafe or ineffective for your pet.

In general, the FDA regulates the manufacture and distribution of animal drugs, while individual state pharmacy…
