What is Ozone Therapy and How Does is Work?
Ozone Therapy is an alternative treatment for chronic illnesses. This natural gas, when mixed with oxygen, creates a treatment that has potentially powerful healing capabilities.
Medical ozone is used to disinfect medical supplies and treat numerous conditions for a century, including preventing infection in wounds. But what else is it good for and how does it exactly work? Read on to learn more.
What Is Ozone Therapy?
Medical ozone is produced from passing oxygen through an electrical coil and adding it with three atoms, changing oxygen (O2) to ozone (O3).
Ozone therapy refers to the process of administering ozone gas into your body to treat a medical conditions by stimulating the immune system. It can also be used for disinfection and to treat a range of diseases. The therapy can be delivered intramuscularly via the blood or under the skin. It may also be delivered through ozone steam sauna.
What are the Benefits of Ozone Therapy?
Here are the best benefits of medical ozone therapy:
1. Antibacterial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Properties
The number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria has led scientists to look for new means to deal with bacterial infections. Alongside this, they’ve also been looking for new treatments for viral and fungal infections. Ozone therapy is one of the latest findings.
2. Boost Your Immune System
Ozone therapy can potentially modify the immune system to better cope with inflammation. People suffering from conditions that cause inflammation, such as inflammatory markers often found in the blood of asthmatics, may discover that the inflammation can result in oxidative stress associated with pain and discomfort.
3. Stop Unhealthy Processes in Your Body
Ozone therapy can also stop unhealthy processes in your body. It can inactivate bacteria, fungi, viruses, yeast, and protozoa.
4. Reverse Damage to the Brain Tissue
Stroke patients can also benefit from ozone therapy. During a stroke, the affected area of the brain begins to lose vital oxygen supply, causing hypoxia of the surrounding brain cells. The damaged area is called the penumbra.
The best solution to reduce the damage is to restore oxygen to the penumbra. Ozone therapy, which supplies a mix of oxygen and ozone gases to hypoxic brain tissue, can reverse the damage.
What Does It Help Treat?
Ozone therapy can be used to treat different conditions. While research on its effectiveness and safety is still ongoing, it’s been found to treat the following:
1. Breathing Disorders
Those with breathing disorders are excellent candidates for ozone therapy. Increasing the oxygen levels in the blood can help reduce the stress on your lungs, as these organs are responsible for supplying oxygen to your blood.
A study about intravenous ozone therapy or injecting ozone mixed with blood to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) found that ozone therapy improved the quality of life and exercise in former smokers with this condition.
However, you should note that breathing in ozone can irritate or damage the lungs, especially those with respiratory problems, so it’s best to talk with your doctor or do your own research.
Ozone therapy also shows positive benefits to treating diabetes. Since complications of this disease are often caused by oxidative stress in the body, research indicates that ozone can correct oxidative stress by activating the body’s immune and antioxidant systems. It also reduces inflammation.
Other studies also show that ozone therapy can help close wounds in people with diabetic foot ulcers and reduce the chances of infection. Moreover, it helps with wound healing in general, a common side effect of diabetes.
Ozone therapy can offer numerous benefits, even for those with immune disorders, as it helps stimulate the immune system. This treatment can benefit many people and potentially treat illnesses.
