Some Historical Info.
The use of medical ozone is not new and ozone is a naturally occurring molecule and healthful gas. In 1740, Schonbein discovered ozone and in 1891 the molecular composition was modeled. Observation soon revealed that ozone reacted with and destroyed bacteria, virus, and other organisms, that it has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties without irritating effects. During the 1st World War the application of ozone to war wounds served primarily as a disinfectant.
In 1896, the electrical genius Nikola Tesla patented his first ozone generator and in 1900 he formed the Tesla Ozone Co. Tesla sold ozone machines and ozonated olive oil to give to doctors for medical use.
"Ozonated olive oil is an effective adjunct treatment for inflammations of the skin, such as dermatitis and seborrhea. Ozonated olive oil is helpful in bacterial infections of the skin including carbuncles, cellulitis, ecthyma, erysipelas, erythasma, folicullitis, furuncles, granuloma annulare, impetigo, paronychia, psoriasis, ringworm, skin yeast, staphylococcus, sweat gland infections and the tinia versicolor. It is also helpful for bed sores (decubitus ulcers) and for the post-surgical treatment of wounds to prevent secondary infections." - (Dr H.E. Sartori)
In the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa, ozone disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell envelope through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins. In fungi, ozone inhibits cell growth at certain stages. With viruses, the ozone damages the viral capsid and disrupts the virus-to-cell contact with peroxidation. The weak enzyme coatings on cells which make them vulnerable to invasion by viruses make them susceptible to oxidation and subsequent elimination from the body.
Doctor’s report that the ozonated oil speeds the healing process, improves blood flow, alleviates pain, and reduces inflammation: it has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties, and heals cell tissues among other things. Oxygen species are absorbed through the pores of the skin which enters the circulatory system and enriches the blood.
No side effects
It will feel very soothing to affected areas. Apart from its therapeutic value, it is also energizing and refreshing.
There are no side effects and it is therefore a highly effective, natural alternative to cortisone. Used medically, Ozone increases the local oxygen supply to lesions, improves and accelerates wound healing, destroys bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses. These micro-organisms are generally anaerobic; they thrive in oxygen-starved environments. When they come into contact with Ozone (or enriched Oxygen) their cellular walls are destroyed. Ozone achieves this without harming healthy cells or tissue.
How are ozonated oils made?
Natural Ozone Ltd's custom made ozonated oils are made by using a high grade Natural Ozone Medical Generator to diffuse highly concentrated ozone very slowly through organic high quality oils for around 2-3 weeks until it is ready for bottling. Unlike some manufacturers, instead of using ambient air as a source that reacts with the ozone we use medical grade oxygen that keeps nitric oxides from entering the oil.
Ozone is highly active and difficult to stablise but certain oils such as the high grade olive, hemp & jojoba oils we use here at Natural Ozone slowly begin to contain the ozone as it begins to saturate the oil held in an ozone resistant glass container.
The oil becomes a paste or salve holding the ozone in suspension without the oil being oxidized. This gel we call AMAZING NATURAL OZONE HEALING GEL and it is highly effective on a wide range of skin complaints.
Organic and all natural
No preservatives, colourants, stabilizers or fragrances are added. Ozone is active and will dissipate in heat that is why the ozonated oil need to be kept below 15 degrees Celsius or more ideally, refrigerated.
However even at a cool room temperature, once opened it retains its effectiveness for many months. If you use frequently it is fine to be stored out of the fridge in cool climates, however keep refrigerated between uses for a long lasting product.
Ozonated olive oil, kept refrigerated, retained its effectiveness for over ten years in tests conducted by German researchers. It is particularly indicated for the treatment of all skin infections and dermatomycoses and is excellent when used after gaseous Ozone treatment by limb bagging. It retains its effectiveness for many hours after application – (Dr J. Hansler)
