A look at Ozone Therapy for Anti-Aging and Longevity
By Dr. Mohammad Shegeft, ND
In my last article on Ozone Therapy and Theory, we discussed how Ozone Injections can treat joint pain, but in doing so we just scratched the surface.
This month, we’re diving a little deeper into one facet of Ozone Therapy: Anti-Aging and Longevity. But before we get to what Ozone does for Longevity, let’s look at what causes aging.
Biomolecular Look at Aging and Ozone Therapy
The mitochondrial free radical theory of aging (MFRTA) states that we age because our cells (in this case our mitochondria) accumulate free radical damage over time. These free radicals are produced as by-products during normal metabolism and are unavoidable. However in a normal healthy being, a balanced equilibrium exists among oxidants, antioxidants and biomolecules. Excess generation of free radicals may overwhelm natural cellular antioxidant defenses leading to oxidation and further contributing to cellular functional impairment. Continue reading
