Oxygen as a single atom is deficient in electrons. This makes the atom very unstable, and as a result single oxygen atoms cannot exist in nature all by themselves – at least not for more than nanoseconds. However, two oxygen atoms can join together to share electrons, and this combination forms a very stable molecule referred to as O2. This is the stable form of oxygen that is found in the atmosphere.
When an energetic force, such as electricity or ultra-violet light, is imposed upon a molecule of O2, the two oxygen atoms are temporarily split apart into single oxygen atoms. Then, in a matter of nanoseconds these highly unstable oxygen atoms will pair up again and reform back into O2 molecules. But a small percentage of them will unite in a ménage-a-trio known as ozone. Thus, ozone, referred to as O3, is a molecule which consists of three oxygen atoms all sharing the same electrons. Because there just are not enough electrons to go around to keep three oxygen atoms completely happy, ozone is a relatively unstable molecule. This instability is why it is such a powerful biological stimulant.
How is Medical Grade Ozone made?
Ozone is made by passing pure oxygen gas through a crystal tube through which an electrical spark is directed. The electrical energy breaks apart the oxygen molecules as described above, and what emerges from the other side is a mixture of oxygen and ozone.
How is Medical Grade Ozone used?
Doctors trained in the use of medical grade ozone know how to administer it into the blood, joints, spine, and body cavities such as the bladder and the intestines.
What conditions respond to Ozone Therapy?
Since oxygen is so fundamental to why people get sick and how the body heals, ozone therapy has been found to be useful for many conditions including: heart disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, herpes, hepatitis, interstitial cystitis, diabetes, Lyme disease, chemical sensitivity, macular degeneration, intestinal disorders, and auto-immune disorders.
What is Prolozone® Therapy?
Prolozone® is a homeopathic/oxygen-ozone injection technique developed and pioneered by our president Dr. Frank Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculo-skeletal and joint pain including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerated discs, and shoulder and elbow pain. Because in many cases Prolozone actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free. Learn more…
