Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin in 1928. However, 20 years passed until it started being used in therapy, and the 1945 Nobel prize was shared between two other scientists, Florey and Chain, that started producing it on a large scale. Can you imagine how many people could have been saved if Fleming’s idea had become practical sooner?
Ozone, even though is found in nature, didn’t suffer the same fortunate fate along time. Its concentration is too little in atmosphere, and the mechanisms at work are much more complicated to be observed by mere sight, like Fleming’s forgotten plates that started to mould eventually. Having been discovered to have the capacity to react with a biological sublayer in 1840, ozone was introduce only in 1900 when the first ozone generator (made by Nikola Tesla in 1896) was put to use by Tesla Ozone Company. This company commercialized ozone generators, as well as ozonated creams and oils for doctors. Ozone therapy is done strictly by the application of these unguents on wounds and tegument.
Only in the second half of the 20th century, doctors begin to understand the ozone’s mechanism of working in our body, at a cellular level. Biochemists and pharmacologists explained how it improved the oxygenation of tissue, how it stimulated angiogenesis, how the inflammatory process is being reduced, how it protects healthy cells from the action of medication that has as a main target a specific condition, but due to its side effects also affects the patient’s quality of life.
That’s why today, after over 40 years of documented medical experience, ozone therapy has numerous clear protocols for some conditions. There are knows specific doses, the concentration used and the method of administration. Due to its antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory effect, ozone stands out from any other medicine, because it doesn’t have any side effects. It can stimulate the immune system or inhibit it in the case of autoimmune diseases. It depends on the concentration used and the amount administrated. This where the doctor’s skill steps forward. Using autohemotransfusions, injections, infiltrations or rectal insuflations, ozone therapy that is practiced here allows the reach for any specific method of treatment. We don’t promise miracles and we are not magicians. What we do is that we work at a highest level of professionalism when it comes to ozone therapy and with specialists known nationally.
