Recap of Day 7: Ozone treatment (i.e. blood cleanse) is always such a treat for me. Sounds crazy, but having to sit in a chair for 2 hours, while my blood drains, is close enough to a spa visit where you are forced to do nothing but relax. While I was on heavy medications this treatment was the only thing that gave me a boost of energy for throughout the week. I would always shop at the WholeFoods immediately after treatment because I felt so good. I 100% believe in this holistic treatment and plan to continue it - not because I see results, but feel it them (my most important radar). With my new found energy and this confirmed energy booster I felt great all day! I will also admit I did fall asleep on the couch at 8pm, during the Trolls movie, but I'll take it.
Below are photos of my actual treatment yesterday:
First they use gravity to drain my blood.
Once the bag has been filled, they add 4 vials of Ozone to it. Looks just like "air" but that special air comes from an Ozone machine.
Then, the treatment nurse takes the bag and slowly with her hands moves it around for a few minutes making sure the Ozone is nicely mixed into the blood. Then they put it back up on the IV stand and let it drain back into your body. The blood drains out as a very dark and thick blood and once mixed turns the most amazing bright red (which photos cannot do it justice).
Day 8: Today the family is attempting to go biking at the Wetlands. It's our favorite place to appreciate Florida wildlife. With a little leg pain happening today (die off from yesterday's treatment) I am excited to see how I do. I also am nervous to fall back into my normal habits of overdoing myself when I get a single burst of energy. One of my mantras is to slow down. I have to use today as a test to enjoy the energy and also rest in between. Let's see how I do. I also have CranioSacral appointment today with one of the best in city. As people will start to learn, I am not a single approach gal. I want Mind, Body & Spirit healing approach...I believe with all three I am getting closer to my "freedom".
Most important about today...I get to start bringing avocados back into my diet. Whoever thought anyone would be so excited to see an avocado. The food part of the cleanse has not changed until today. Excited for a minor expansion.
Fact: Ozone (O3) is a molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen. Best explained here: "Oxygen is the single most important nutrient for the body and your wellness. The body can survive weeks without food, days without water, but only minutes without oxygen. Every cell of the body requires a continuous supply to generate energy, detoxify the body and maintain healthy cells. Any reduction in the availability of oxygen to the body, whether by poor posture and breathing, deoxygenated water and refined foods, smoking, lack of exercise, environmental pollution or exposure to carbon monoxide, reduces the optimal performance of these essential cellular functions. Ozone (O3) is activated oxygen (O2), and in a short period of time the O3 molecule will revert back to oxygen. During this short half life cycle, the O3 molecule can therefore be utilized for sanitation and sterilization purposes. Ozone inactivates viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungus and protozoa."
Here are the Top 10 benefits to Ozone.
I get my treatment done at my doctor's office. I am thankful for their approach to mind, body and spirit. You can visit their site here: www.drkalidas.com. The office hosts free seminars every month and are always worthwhile to attend.
