A normal oxygen molecule has two molecules of oxygen, but ozone has three. This extra molecule is what makes ozone different and more effective as an alternative cancer treatment. Cancer cells die when exposed to oxygen (cancer cells are anaerobic). Ozone works by getting more oxygen into the tissue cells of the body. This process also stimulates the repair process of the body by allowing it to create new cells faster and more effectively.
The medical use of ozone-oxygen therapy is also gaining momentum in cancer plus as well as treatment of other diseases and health conditions. Research suggests a benefit for treating the un-wanted side effects from conventional treatment which includes radiation complications and burns, osteonecrosis, wound healing and infections. There is data demonstrating that this treatment can have direct properties in various cancer models (i.e. anti-cancer), immune system effects, metabolic effects (i.e. improved antioxidant defense) and protective effects on tissues.
