Examples of Ozone Therapy


Ozone is a chemical compound made up of three oxygen atoms. At room temperature, O3 is a colorless gas with a characteristic odor. Its name comes from the Greek ozein (ozein), which means “smell.” It was brought to light and made known in 1840 by Christian Friedrich Schönbein (1799-1868) a specialist German chemist. At ground level it can be found in the form of smog, in concentrations of 1 part O 3 per 10 million parts of air (= 0.1ppm = 200μg / m³), ​​at a height of 2,000 meters (or 6,561.6 feet), however, it is much less, usually only 0.03 to 0.04 ppm. Because it is a very powerful oxidizing agent and a very effective disinfectant, is used throughout the world to destroy germs in water treatment facilities to supply drinking water.
