Increasing Effectiveness Through Pre-Conditioning
This is well documented in many studies — and makes just plain common sense: It would be surprising if the body’s tissues didn’t respond to a mild oxidative stress by increasing their defenses.
However, ozone infusion can be a bit risky — an air embolism (a gas or particle obstruction in a blood vessel) is a potentially devastating complication.
Therefore, medical scientists have devised an alternative, safer way to achieve the same protective benefit. In O3-AHT, about 200 milliliters of a patient’s blood are withdrawn; this blood is then blended with ozonated oxygen outside the body.
This ozone rapidly reacts with cells and blood proteins in the drawn blood. Ozone is so unstable and reacts so rapidly that within seconds there is no ozone per se in the blood.
However, there are many chemical compounds in the blood formed by reaction with the ozone that are like those produced in the body’s tissues during oxidative stress. The ozone treated blood is then infused back into the patient.
