Ozone therapy in Lyme disease

Research has shown that ozone kills microorganisms by destroying their outer membranes or capsules.

In addition, unlike human cells, which possess enzymes that can repair damaged DNA, pathogenic microorganisms do not have this protective capacity. Ozone acts selectively on pathogens found in the body without harming healthy cells.

Repeated ozone treatments are necessary because certain forms of viruses and fungi are more susceptible to the effect of ozone at different stages of their development. Some microorganisms are more resistant than others and therefore require more prolonged treatment.

Viruses with more lipids in the outer capsule are more susceptible to the action of ozone: herpes, mumps, measles, influenza, rabies, HIV, Epstein Barr virus, Coxsackie virus, cytomegalovirus.
