Are you suffering from pain in your joints? Do you have long-standing knee pain that grinds on your nerves? Have you almost given up hope of ever escaping the pain of your old sports injury? We would like to share another option before you throw in the towel and turn to surgery or just decide to live with the pain for the rest of your life.
Ozone Therapy is a service now being offered through Faithfully Guided and has helped many deal with chronic pain. This therapy does not act as a drug, it works by stimulating our own body systems to optimize oxygen utilization. Prolozone Therapy (the type of Ozone Therapy at Faithfully Guided) is a connective tissue injection that can reconstruct damaged or weakened tissue in and around joints for optimizing oxygen utilization.
Why Do We Need Optimized Oxygen Utilization?
Decreased oxygen utilization in our body is at the forefront of all chronic diseases, pain, and aging! The average person starts having functional hypoxia (decreased oxygen utilization without symptoms) around the age of 30 and then begins the dreaded decline. Low oxygen generates excessive free radicals and deprives the cells of vital functions including repair mechanisms. This combination ultimately destroys the mitochondria in our cells which leads to cell death.
The mitochondria are the engines of our body. It is the only place in the cell where oxygen is reduced and eventually broken down into water and energy. A side effect of this reaction is the creation of free radicals, which are essential to cellular function but can be devastating in high amounts.
What is Ozone and How Does it Work?
In order to improve oxygen utilization we need to help the mitochondria do the job they were made to do:
- Make water
- Make Energy
- Make the right amount of free radicals essential to cellular function.
Ozone is an oxygen molecule with 3 atoms and is a relatively unstable molecule. It gives off the extra oxygen atom so that it can be reduced back to the stable O2 form. The ozone molecule does this by donating its extra oxygen atom to another compound that easily penetrates the cell membranes of your cells, which again donates the oxygen atom exactly where it’s needed to increase oxygen utilization.
This ultimately aids the body in the healing process and keeps us young.
Prolozone is a form of non-surgical ligament reconstruction and is a permanent treatment for chronic pain. Prolozone is a connective tissue injection therapy which can reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints. Ozone is not a pharmaceutical, it works by stimulating your own body to utilize oxygen more effectively.
OK… I hope that was more informative than confusing. The bottom line is, we believe that this therapy will help the body heal and eliminate chronic pain.
