Ozone therapy is used to increase the oxygen utilization of systems in our body which in turn promotes the immune system.
Ozone (O3) is a colorless gas that is made up of three oxygen particles. The regular oxygen (O2) that we breathe every day is made up of just two oxygen particles. Because ozone has three oxygen particles rather than two, it is considered an ‘activated’ form of oxygen. Ozone is used in many applications where more oxygen is beneficial such as water purification, air purification, and medical ozone therapies.
Ozone Therapy Q & A
When the body needs to be supercharged with oxygen particles, ozone is the go-to option. Ozone is used to promote oxygen utilization leading to an increase in immune cell production and activating your own stem cells to optimize physical functionality and healing. This unique therapy is given to patients to detoxify the body, help fight infections, treat diseases, and accelerate recovery.
Ozone therapy is a biological modifier and this type of therapy has been around for 100 years. It is widely used in Europe in countries such as Germany, Spain and Italy. it can be used to help promote a healthier immune system and overall lifestyle. Some of the common conditions that ozone therapy is used to help with are:
- Infections (viral, bacterial, fungal)
- Autoimmune (e.g fibromyalgia)
- Chronic joint pain
- Wound healing
- Cancer (optimizes treatment)
- Respiratory (e.g. bronchitis)
- Digestive (e.g. Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis), and heart conditions (e.g. heart attack)
- Improve athletic performance and even help reduce jet lag
- Helps detoxify the body
Ozone therapy works to increase the oxygen utilization of systems in our body which in turn promotes the immune system. The disinfecting qualities of ozone make it a highly recommended method for treating viral and bacterial infections.
Oxygen is also the basis of energy for all the cells in the body. As we take in more oxygen molecules through ozone therapy, our cells are able to produce more energy. This increase in energy helps the body heal itself, correct any damaged systems, and provide the support you need to feel better.
Immunotherapy is a process that gradually gets your body used to the substance causing an allergic reaction. Continual exposure to small quantities of the allergen reduces your immune system response, so eventually, your body doesn’t overreact when it comes in contact with that substance.
Immunotherapy is especially effective for patients with allergies to insect venom and substances they inhale. However, it doesn’t work if you have an allergy to a specific food or medication.
How does Ozone therapy work?
There are a few methods of ozone therapy. Ozone infusions involve ozone collecting blood and returning it to the patient once ozonated. Rectal and bladder insufflations are used to address problems such as chronic cystitis, hepatitis, and colitis in organs such as the liver, intestine, and bladder. Ozone therapy has been widely used topically to treat wounds, burns and nail fungus. It can also be delivered directly to the joints through an injection known as prolozone (ozone mixed with vitamins and procaine).
Ozone treatment is safe, effective and preventive. Your doctor will determine the best treatment option and frequency for your needs.
