You know that oxygen is the molecule that makes all life possible.
What you may not know is that activated oxygen turns from the molecule 0-2 (oxygen) to 0-3 (ozone). That’s what activated oxygen therapy is all about and why it’s important for people and pets.
This third oxygen atom is very special because it does 2 important things in the body.
First, it puts “extra” activated oxygen into diseased, cancerous, inflamed or infected tissue.
Increased oxygen greatly boosts the body’s healing power!
Consider the fact that all cellular energy, function and healing come directly from oxygen.
You may remember your biology and chemistry classes, learning about the cell function of mitochondria and ATP?
Bet you never thought that would have real life meaning for you and your pet, but it does! Here’s why.
The third oxygen atom negatively affects abnormal cells, (like cancer) and pathogens such as bacteria, yeast fungus and viruses.
That means that it breaks through the outer “wall” that surrounds the abnormal cell or pathogen.
As a result NORMAL cells have a way of protecting themselves against this degenerative, diseased effect.
So then the normal cells get a boost of activated oxygen to help them heal, while abnormal cells and pathogens have their “wall” broken and die!
Healing animals, communicating with them in order to keep them healthy and happy is what being a pet caretaker is all about.
This is why activated oxygen is such an incredible healing therapy for people and animals!
A special oxygen activation machine (which we now have in our clinic) takes medical grade oxygen and activates it to help animals heal and feel better fast.
The problem is that the O – 3 molecule is stable for only short periods of time, which is why it does not occur in nature except in the upper atmosphere.
Did you know that many cities nationwide are using Activated Oxygen (ozone) to purify their water supply instead of chemicals such as chlorine? It’s effectiveness is well documented.
Where can we use Activated Oxygen?
Activated oxygen is incredibly effective in most any resistant, or degenerative disease process. That includes health problems like cancer, non-antibiotic responsive infections, severe yeast infections of the skin and ears.
It also includes painful arthritis, colitis, or any other inflammatory condition.
Further, there are a variety of ways to administer activated oxygen and the number of treatments vary, depending on the condition we’re treating.
Ironically, since activated oxygen is not a “recognized” therapy by the “legal powers” of veterinary medicine (neither is chiropractic in animals either by the way!!), you must sign a waiver of consent before we or other veterinarians can do this extraordinary therapy.
We veterinarians who have included activated oxygen in our clinics are very excited about adding this wonderful, life giving therapy.
After all, it is our heartfelt quest to help pets who are severely ill when they don’t have any other chance for recovery or ease of symptoms. It’s called for when nothing else is working.
I highly recommend finding a vet in your immediate area that can offer activated oxygen treatment if you feel your animal could benefit from it.
