Ozone is an unstable gas made of three oxygen molecules. This instability causes it to readily break apart and release a single electron (a.k.a. a free radical) in a chemical process known as oxidation. You have probably only heard of oxidation as being bad or harmful, but just as with inflammation, it’s only in excessive amounts that it leads to degeneration and disease – a little bit is beneficial and actually necessary for health.
It’s the oxidative property of ozone that makes it a very powerful therapeutic agent in the body. One of the ways it does this is by promoting increased production of our own antioxidants like glutathione, the “Master Antioxidant.” Glutathione is in itself the strongest antioxidant, but it also serves to recycle and restore other antioxidants in our bodies, like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, selenium, alpha lipoic acid – the list goes on. More antioxidants on board means our bodies are better protected from many degenerative diseases and cancerous cellular changes.
Another way the oxidation of ozone is beneficial is by destroying pathogens and neutralizing many toxins. Not only does ozone directly kill bacteria and fungi and demolish viruses, it boosts our own immune system to help it fight<><><><><><>Continue Reading >
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a 300 year old medical treatment that consists of administering 100% oxygen under pressure in order to saturate body tissues with oxygen so they can function optimally. Normally, oxygen is almost exclusively carried by the red blood cells in your body.Continue Reading
The top killer of American women is heart disease, so keeping our tickers strong and resilient is of the utmost importance for a long, healthy life, right? I’m sure you’re familiar with some of the risk factors you can control to keep your heart strong including daily exercise, eating very little sugar, lots of healthy Omega-3 oils and vegetables, avoiding excessive alcohol and smoking, and maintaining low visceral body fat (that’s the abdominal fat around your organs). It’s this risky, inflammatory visceral fat I’m going to address first.Continue Reading
Remember hearing about the most recent article that was published in JAMA that suggested that Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) increased the risk of Strokes and Heart Attacks? The results showed that the male veterans who took testosterone had lower rates of Heart Attacks, Stokes, and Death compared to men who did not take testosterone.Continue Reading
The reason the word belief is in quotation marks is because these doctors are 100% misinformed. If science is a religion then I suppose we can call their opinions— albeit without facts— beliefs. There are many studies demonstrating the risks of Progestin in women and the benefits of Progesterone.Continue Reading
