Over the years I have attended countless conferences for both conventional medicine and alternative. Although I have learned much from the courses what I have found most helpful is to hear from my colleagues and find out what is working best for their patients. One such therapy that has repeatedly come up was ozone.
Although ozone therapy is relatively new in the US it has been used in Europe for over 40 years to treat infections. It functions by increasing oxygen within body tissues. Many bacteria are anaerobic and cannot live in an oxygenated environment. Many other pathogenic organisms prefer low-oxygen environments.
There is not a single virus, bacteria, parasite, yeast, or fungus that has been shown to be resistant to ozone therapy. It has been found to disrupt the cell membranes through oxidation. In other organisms, lie fungi, ozone inhibits cell growth. With viruses, ozone inhibits the protein shell and disrupts the reproductive cycle.
Ozone has been shown to treat the most serious infectious organisms we know of including; Clostridium difficile, Ebola, HIV, Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme disease) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. I have found it to be an invaluable therapeutic in treating all types antibiotic-resistant infection
