Ozone Colon Hydrotherapy
This article is informational, and not intended to be considered medical advice or instructional. Always consult a trained physician before performing any act that may affect your health. Many of you already know the benefits of colon hydrotherapy. For those of you that have not experienced this cleansing procedure, let me briefly explain: body temperature water is gently infused into the colon via the rectum. Water flows in, debris flows out. For most, the experience is pleasant, if not unusual. Patients typically report a sense of well being after the procedure. In our practice, it is used as a detoxification tool for patients on protocols or programs that require fast and efficient removal of toxins (heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi, yeasts, and all blood borne pathogens), and prevents gallstones and liver congestion. Colon hydrotherapy helps to cleanse the body without laxatives, which can dehydrate the body. It is a safe and simple method which irrigates the large intestines with water, clearing colon blockage. It also stimulates the production of all important white blood cells, and encourages the flow of bile from the liver, gallbladder, and small intestine. The addition of ozone is a great therapeutic resource in medicine. Because we are all oxygen-deficient to some degree, our bodies can no longer clear oxidative "trash," so it piles up for years, affecting every aspect of our biology. John Pittman, MD, "believe[s] that ozone is an important tool in medicine, and should have a place in the treatment of disease, because most of the diseases afflicting humans today can be traced to the diminishing levels of oxygen and compromised immune system. " He goes on to state that, "Any therapy that can increase oxygen at the cellular level deserves to be incorporated into a complete treatment program." Improving oxygen levels in the body though ozone therapy simple. Ozone is a gas formed by three atoms of oxygen, which impart oxygen to cells very easily. By inserting a tiny tube into the rectum, we deliver pure ozone in a humidified gas form, a procedure known as "insufflation." After ozone is introduced in the body, it sets off a series of metabolic reactions. It is absorbed through the intestinal walls into the bloodstream, which restores circulation. It then oxidizes plaques in arteries and restores flexibility to red blood cells, which essentially "cleans out" tiny capillaries, and improves the body's vascular network. It has been found that more oxygen, when administered via ozone colonics, is absorbed through the colon than through the lungs, making it an extremely efficient method of oxygen treatment. Additional benefits of ozone include: 1. Increased oxygen levels and hemoglobin dissociation, which improves oxygen transfer from blood to your cells 2. Inhibition of tumor growth 3. Degradation of petrochemicals and heavy metals 4. Decreased free radicals 5. Increased stimulation of basic metabolism 6. Improved removal of herbicides, pesticides, and other harmful toxins 7. Improved breakdown of cholesterol Ozone colon hydrotherapy can be used in patients with colitis, leaky gut, Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and all chronic inflammatory process, although it has been used since the 1950s in Germany for many other conditions. In fact, the German Medical Society for Ozone Therapy conducted a study in 1980, which found that side effects related to ozone colonic therapy were found in 0.000007%, making it one of the safest medical therapies available. Eliminating waste through a healing crisis is a good sign that the detoxification process is working properly. To minimize these unpleasant effects, however, your doctor may recommend an increased vitamin and detoxification support protocol along with the ozone therapy. Properly functioning waste systems is crucial to safe and effective detoxification. As you can see, ozone and colon hydrotherapy are certainly beneficial therapies on their own, but are particularly powerful when used together. The beneficial effects of ozone hydrotherapy are numerous, especially when compared to its low risk of adverse side effects. Because of the tremendous success already seen with patients utilizing this treatment, consider jump starting your health this new year by discussing the benefits of this therapy with your doctor, and if it would be appropriate for you.Click Here for Provider's Detail Page
