What is Ozone?
Ozone therapy refers to the process of introducing ozone gas into the body to treat a wound or disease.
Ozone is a colorless gas and consists of three oxygen atoms (O3).
Some studies have found that ozone stimulates the immune system and can be used to treat medical conditions.
It can also be used for disinfection and treatment of various diseases.
Medical ozone has been used to disinfect medical supplies and treat different conditions for over 100 years. It can also help prevent infection in wounds.
The reactions that occur when ozone gas comes into contact with body fluids create more red blood cells and proteins. This increases the oxygen supply in your body.
Ozone gas is made from medical-grade oxygen sources.
Effect of Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy is a safe and effective alternative to surgery. Studies have shown that ozone reduces levels of prostaglandins, compounds that activate inflammation and pain in the body. This is thought to help shrink the disc, thereby relieving pressure on the nerves around it.
Ozone therapy is also effectively used as a supportive treatment in immune system diseases, diabetes and lung diseases.
