Oxidation

Oxidation
Oxidation therapy consists of delivering free active oxygen to our organs and tissues. In a fast and immediate way, this aggressive therapy treats many infections, get rid of circulating cancer cells, provides deep detox and activates energy production. We apply the following oxidation methods in different variations:

Ozone IV therapy
Ozone therapy is a powerful and immediate oxygenation method to treat infections and modulate immune system. It consists of enrichment of blood and other body liquids with O3 and provides many beneficial effects, such as direct inactivation of viruses, bacteria and protozoa; stimulation of oxygen metabolism and activation of immune system.

Benefits:
  • Potent detox by oxidation of many organic toxins
  • Anti-infective: reduction of fungal, bacterial and viral infections
  • Treatment of mitochondrial disfunction
  • Anti-inflammatory effect
  • H1/TH2 shift / cytokine imbalance
  • Inflammation
  • Pain management

Santa Maria ozone procedures:
  • IV ozone. Ozone is produced on site from medical grade oxygen. It is delivered in sterile saline (0.9% NaCl) intravenously
  • Ozone therapy rectal
  • Ozone therapy vaginal
  • Ozone therapy ears
  • Ozone foot bath
Ozone therapy rectal
Administration of ozone therapy rectally is known as rectal insufflation. It's main goal is elevating ozone concentration in the gut, liver and, partly, small intestine. Rectal ozone therapy helps with chronic conditions of GI system, such as chronic colitis, liver diseases and SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth). Since we have a major intersection between gut microbiome and immune system, rectal ozone therapy modulates immune system as well. The main benefits of rectal insufflation are its high efficiency, speed, minimal invasiveness and complete lack of pain. Treatment takes only 10-15 minutes and ozone is fully absorbed in 30 minutes.

Benefits:
  • Relieve of chronic colitis
  • Help with SIBO symptoms
  • Relieve of hemorrhoid inflammation
  • Relieve of chronic liver disease
Ozone therapy vaginal
In vaginal delivery, ozone directly kills unwanted pathogens, such as Candida albicans and vaginal bacteria. Also, vaginal delivery helps with fertility. Absorbed through the skin, it supports ovarian rejuvenation by awakening follicles with ovaries. It stimulates hormone balance and removes free radicals and bacteria, which may inhibit conception. Vaginal ozone therapy especially helpful for women over 35 for improving vaginal health and increasing chances of pregnancy. Vaginal delivery is quick and painless.

Benefits:
  • Treating vaginal infections
  • Improving vaginal health
  • Relieve in inflammatory disease of the uterus/vagina
  • Support of IVF and pregnancy
  • Ozone therapy vaginal
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a type of oxygenation when patients inhale 100% oxygen in controlled environment under light pressure (1.2-3ATM). HBOT is administered by placing the patient entirely in the pressure vessel, a hard-core or a soft-shell chamber.

HBOT is a well-established procedure, approved by FDA for 13 conditions and covered by insurance in most countries. Recent studies shown a powerful longevity effect of HBOT, which substantially reduces telomere shortening and induces stem cells circulation 10 fold

Benefits
  • Induces stem cells circulation
  • Reduces inflammation and autoimmune symptoms
  • Longevity: reduces shortening of telomers
  • A major tool for healing chronic Lyme disease
  • Powerful wound healing procedure
  • Helps to heal post-traumatic stress disorder
  • A powerful tool for Covid 19 healing

Santa Maria HBOT procedure
At Santa Maria, we use a Canada-built soft-shell camera Oxynova 7, known for its reliability and safety. We apply low pressure 100% oxygen, 1.2 – 1.4 ATM for 30-50 minutes, as this is proven to be optimal range for chronic indications in European medical resorts.
Ozone therapy is probably the most effective method of oxidation of body liquids and it is natural for human body, as it is actually produced endogenously by immune cells (neutrophils). The mechanisms of action partly consist of creating reactive oxygen species (peroxides) known as ozonides, in the lipid of cell membranes. Ozonides are stable for days or weeks, easily penetrate cell membranes and selectively stimulate numerous biochemical reactions and physiological processes, such as

  • Mitochondrial resuscitation and recovery
  • Increasing oxygen utilization by oxidizing NADH to NAD
  • Increasing cytokine reduction leading to
    • Greater immune system response
    • Normalization of TH1/TH2 balance
  • Direct killing of pathogenic bacteria, viruses and fungi with no resistance
  • Decreasing inflammation by reducing NFKb expression
  • Improving redox balance by activating Nrf2, a "master regulator of CytoProtection2.
Ozone therapy has a long and rich history in Western medicine. The gas comprised of molecules with three oxygen atoms was discovered in 1785 in Netherlands and synthesized in 1840. In late 19th century, it was shown that ozone eliminates microorganisms, and the gas became popular in Europe as an antiseptic. In the US, the first text book on ozone therapy was published already in 1885. Nikola Tesla patented his ozone generator in 1896 and later founded the "Tesla Ozone Co.". In 1911, the first teaching center on ozone therapy was founded at the Loyola University Chicago. In 1957, the first modern ozone generator was built. Now, ozone therapy is widely spread across the world and applied both by Western and alternative doctors. By now, there were over 3000 studies published in ozone therapy of many etiologies. Ozone treatment is recommended to almost any patient with a variety of disease and conditions.

Importantly, ozone therapy is safe. In a fundamental study on treatment safety, a survey of 64 ozone therapist and 5,579,238 treatment sessions revealed only 0.06% of complications.
