Ozone generators that ozonate the air have been banned in California. However, ozonators that put ozone into water and oils have not. The reason for this is that the ozone that goes into water and oils has demonstrated therapeutic value.
The problem with putting ozone into the air is that it has been shown to be harmful to lung tissue. You really do not want to breath in ozone if it can be avoided.
In fact, when ozone therapy is administered in a ‘body suit’ style, care is taken to make sure that the patient does not actually breath the ozone into their nostrils and lungs.
Ozone has been used therapeutically for a very long time. It is arguably more widely used in Europe than in the United States. However, medical grade ozone can be found in the United States as well.
Some veterinarians utilize ozone to infuse (mix ozone with blood) as a therapy for killing very deadly protozoans that infect horses – particularly in Florida.
There appear to be many uses for ozone. I once spoke with a nurse who told me that she was interested in using ozonated water to treat her husbands Gangrene. Sh said she was fighting to save his leg as the hospital had given up.
Using some type of clay therapy, she had made much progress. However, she felt the ozonated water is what she really needed. Ozone is known to kill both bacteria and viruses..
Ozone can be made with a home ozone generator.
It does seem strange that modern medicine in the United States is not exploring all the possible uses for ozone and using it clinically. Again, the only real proven danger is in breathing ozone into the lungs. Otherwise, ozone appears to provide many other therapeutic benefits to the human body.
More studies are needed – if you are a study oriented person. However, ozone has a long history as a therapeutic agent. Next: Follow the links below to read more about this fascinating topic.
