Is your body rusting away?

Oxidative Therapies may help!

So what are Oxidative Therapies? The word “oxidative” refers to the oxygen, an element which is necessary for all life.

There are a variety of Oxidative protocols that can be used to induce a healing effect in the human body.

Oxidative therapies such as ozone (a form of oxygen that is very reactive, but safe if administered by a trained practitioner) can be introduced into the body to reverse some of the effects of aging.

We often refer to the aging process as oxidative damage, similar to the rusting of iron, or the brown discoloration which appears on apple slices.

This human oxidative process accelerates aging and increases the deterioration of our bodies. Ozone and other oxidative treatments may reverse this damage, and can also be used to help people suffering from chronic inflammation, heart disease, arthritis, autoimmune problems  (immune system attacking self) and chronic infections.

This treatment may be injected into joints to stimulate new cartilage formation, given intravenously, or added to another oxidative therapy, such as ultraviolet blood irradiation (UVI). UVI is commonly used for water purification and can have similar effects on the blood. Small amounts of blood exposed to ultraviolet light can increase the effect of the immune system’s fight against recent and chronic infection, as well as against chronic inflammation.

High dose vitamin C (over 25 grams) can have similar effects of delivering oxygen to the body, boosting the immune system and reversing the effects of disease and aging. It can also be used to treat shingles, mononucleosis, and in the treatment of chronic infections like hepatitis B, C, and HIV.
