Prolozone is derived from the word ozone and the Latin word “proli” which means to regenerate or re-build. It literally means re-building tissues with ozone! Prolozone Therapy is a non-surgical process of injecting ozone directly into the impacted area to increase the amount of cellular oxygen into muscles, ligaments, and joints. Unlike the healthy cells that thrive in oxygen, disease causing bacteria (i.e. viruses, parasites, and fungi) are mostly anaerobic and are not able to survive in high oxygen environments.
When ozone is injected into the bloodstream, it immediately reacts with any available oxidizable substrate (called peroxidation), most notably the lipids of cell membranes. Ozone is effective in combating diseases because of the following:
• Kills bacteria, fungi and viruses
• Oxidizes toxins
• Activates the immune response system
• Improves cellular utilization of oxygen
• It causes the release of growth factors
• Reduces or eliminates many cases of chronic pain
