Holistic Veterinarian Practice Series: #2. Ozone Can Strengthen Your Pet’s Immune System
Ozone strengthens your pet’s immune system.
Ozone is a potent regulator of the immune system. When your pet’s immune system is overactive (as in auto-immune disease), ozone will calm it down. On the other hand, when your pet’s immune system is under active as in chronic infections, ozone will stimulate it.
This unique ability of ozone stems from its activation of immune related messenger molecules called cytokines. Technical names for cytokines include gamma interferon, interleukin-2, colony stimulating factor, and TNF-alpha, to name a few.
