Ozone therapy is a type of therapy that can be used to treat a number of medical conditions. The treatment type is commonly used in Europe and has only become known in the United States over the past few decades. The therapy type provides several treatment options using ozone, a mixture of three oxygen molecules. Traditionally, oxygen consists of two molecules. With ozone, three are used to super boost the oxygen, which has healing effects on the body.
With ozone treatment, patients have an alternative to taking medication. Drugs used to treat medical conditions can have serious side effects and lead to death, in some cases. Ozone therapy has proven to be a safe alternative to treating disease and even cancer. Below are a few examples of conditions that can benefit from ozone therapy:
- Lyme disease
- Chronic sinusitis
- Vaginal infection
- Chronic hepatitis
- Autoimmune Disease
- And more
How is Ozone Therapy Administered?
Ozone is created by using an ozone generator which turns the pure oxygen into a certain concentration used for treatment. The gas can be bottled but only has a 45-minute half-life. It is then delivered to the body in several ways. The way the treatment is administered will be dependent on your condition and the best way to provide healing properties.
One way in which ozone therapy can be provided is major autohemotherapy. Several conditions can benefit from this method including cancer, hepatitis, Lyme disease and autoimmune diseases. With this treatment, a small amount of blood is removed from the patient and mixed with ozone. The blood is then transfused back into the body which provides an ozone/oxygen mix into the bloodstream. The mix is exposed to every cell, with unhealthy cells being destroyed.
Another form of ozone treatment is injections. Sports injuries, cancer, shingles, meniscal tears and herniated discs can benefit from this treatment type. The area where treatment is needed will be numbed with anesthesia and then the ozone injected close to the affected area. For cancer, this would be the site of a tumor, with shingles near the affected nerve root and so on.
Rectal ozone is a common therapy type as well where the ozone flows through the rectum with a cannula. Concentrations of ozone are set based on the individual. If intestinal issues are present, such as lining in need of repair, then a lower dosage will be used. Issues such as ulcerative colitis bleeding would require a higher dosage. Additional conditions can be treated with this method such as Alzheimer’s.
Ozone can also be provided in the ear canal or vagina, depending on the condition. Vaginal ozone treatments are used to help with a vaginal infection as well as sexually transmitted diseases. With ear canal treatment, such issues as brain cancer or tinnitus are the conditions treated.
Using ozone therapy can provide quality benefits to the body. The ozone can increase immunity which will assist with a number of medical conditions. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory, correcting joint disorders including arthritis. It offers antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal effects as well as having anti-cancer effects. With cancer patients, the treatment works to destroy unhealthy cells in the body, leaving the healthy cells alone.
Overall, ozone therapy works to assist several serious medical conditions. Many of these conditions typically use modern drug therapy which can lead to complicated or unwanted side effects. By using ozone therapy, you have a safe alternative to treating your condition and hopefully seeing a positive change in your overall health. A medical professional will be able to determine the right course of ozone treatment for your medical needs.
