 ozone therapy
 Ozone combines oxygenation (oxygen enrichment) and oxidation. Ozone (O3) - is less stable form of molecular oxygen that easily reacts with other chemicals. Additional oxygen atom as a part of ozone is removed, and remains O2, molecular form of oxygen that is present in the air we breathe. Proponents of alternative medicine claim that it is the splitting of ozone provides oxygen for oxygenation and oxidation. This, theoretically, increases local oxygen supply to the tissues, which helps fight infection (bacterial and viral) and raises the temperature of tissue. All of this should strengthen the process of local metabolism, according to some doctors.

Traditional medicine and ozone therapy

Ozone - a subject of controversy in modern medicine. It is not fully understood and not accepted by all. This does not mean that ozone therapy is useless, or that it will not investigate. There are different opinions on how it may be used in traditional medicine, ozone therapy.

Although ozone is used as an alternative medical approach for the past four decades, from the orthodox medicine, she is skeptical, if not rejection. This bias is not without reason, since ozone therapy is often used without a rational basis and appropriate controls. With the advent of accurate medical ozone generators it is now possible to evaluate some of its mechanisms of action and possible toxicity. In contrast to the respiratory tract, human blood exposed allowable concentration of ozone is able to play to their strengths oxidative properties, so millions of patients did not provoke any acute or chronic side effects after ozone therapy.
