IOA News – “We are only beginning to discover ozone’s potential”

IOA 2018 Keynote

Diversifying ozone use

Municipal water treatment has gotten the lion’s share of attention with ozone.  As we begin to discover its potential for other applications, this is beginning to change.  The opening plenary session and keynote address by Rick Warner at the Tuesday morning presentations emphasized the need for IOA to widen its focus to include more support for industrial and medical applications of ozone.  This goal is in harmony with the theme, “We are only beginning to discover ozone’s potential.”  IOA is planning to expand its committees to encompass more of these applications. 

Authenticity and Legitimacy of Ozone

As more applications, research, and discoveries for ozone use are developed, ozone is becoming more a part of people’s lives.  For example, ozone systems are being tested on smaller scale water re-use treatment within a business building or living complex.  These systems help relieve the increasing water stress in many parts of the world.  As such applications increase, more people encounter ozone use.  Those involved in ozone applications have a responsibility to strive for authenticity and legitimacy in their work and public interaction.  We can all help promote the legitimacy of ozone with promoting sound information, collaborating with experts, using resources in the community such as University research, or doing demonstration projects.  Oxidation Technologies LLC is committed to promoting the legitimacy of ozone by publishing the best information we can, educating people about effective and safe ozone use, and transparency in our work and systems.

The blue-coloured form of oxygen, which nourishes healthy cells and destroys malfunctioning ones, rejuvenates cells and helps in healing wounds and repairing tissues.

“It is safe and is very effective because it attacks and removes disease-causing agents, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeast and toxic metals,” Dr S.S. Sibia, Director, Sibia Medical Centre, Ludhiana told IANS. Ozone is an element found naturally in the atmosphere and a molecule consists of three atoms of oxygen. It quickly combines with the blood, lymph and other tissues of body and is more powerful than plain Oxygen.

When medical ozone enters the bloodstream, it separates into O2 and O, the healthy cells, armed with antioxidants, absorb the O2 and repel the O, which zeroes in on the diseased cells and neutralizes them, Sibia explained. “We also use it as complementary therapy in treatment of various types of cancers and for general immune-activation for allergic diseases and improve the body’s inherent resistance,” Sibia added.

The most commonly reported success stories are of diabetic foot treatment with Ozone. Ozone therapy is administered in many different ways in the human body–drinking ozonated water, saunas, rectal means, intravesical, ozonated saline, soft tissue and joint injection and directly ozonating the patient’s blood.

Ozone can be injected into and around the joints for the treatment of inflamed and painful joints and is even effective for non-healing ulcers. Ozonised oil is used as an ointment for pain relief and is even used as antiseptic. There’s another aspect to ozone therapy.

“It involves injecting ozone into the skin, which boosts oxygen levels and helps to deeply cleanse impurities in the skin. It is used for the treatment of both oily and acne skin and also reduces inflammation,” Dr Chiranjiv Chabbra, Dermatologist, Skin Alive Clinic, New Delhi told IANS.

“Ozone therapy works wonders for most people. It’s100 per cent natural with zero chemicals, zero medication, zero down time, zero discomfort, and zero side effects. It’s relatively affordable too,” Chabbra added.

To this end, Ozone can be used to balance the skin’s ph level and lighten its tone. It also works wonders for lines, wrinkles and open pores. “A large number of people are coming to resolve issues of infected skin and we recommend ozone therapy as it helps to get rid of dry and infected layers,” Dr Priyanka Prakash, Dermatologist, Paras Hospital, Gurgaon told IANS.

Many centres offer ozone therapy for aesthetics and against dandruff, acne and a host of other skin conditions.
“We use ozone therapy primarily to treat problems of infected skin as it helps in killing the bacterial activity that causes acne or dandruff,” Prakash noted.

“Ozone therapy should be avoided in early pregnancy and care needs to be taken in patients with hyperthyroidism, bleeding problems, deficiency of Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase–which could lead to jaundice and epilepsy, Sibia concluded.
