The oxygen you breathe is present in the air as a pair of oxygen atoms. This is the most stable form of oxygen, and it’s colorless. Ozone is a blue colored form of oxygen (it’s what makes the sky blue), but unlike regular oxygen, it is composed of three oxygen atoms instead of two. The addition of the third oxygen atom makes ozone a “supercharged” oxygen, and gives it all of its remarkable medical properties.
The use of ozone to treat various medical conditions was first developed in Germany in the early 1950’s. Today, medical ozone therapy is commonly used throughout Europe, and its use has gradually been spreading in America over the last 25 years.
It used to treat a variety of chronic disease including (but not limited to) cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, chronic hepatitis, herpes, chronic fatigue states, chemical sensitivity, macular degeneration, chronic bladder conditions, colitis, auto-immune diseases, latent infections and Crohn’s disease.
