How Ozone Therapy Works
Generally speaking, ozone therapy is used to treat a variety of degenerative, immune-related, and inflammatory conditions including:
Bacterial and viral infections
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Heart disease and arteriosclerosis
Candida or other fungal/yeast infections
That’s right. Ozone therapy works by stimulating your immune system and helping the body to better fight infections, reduce inflammation, and heal itself. It helps balance your body’s own natural healing mechanisms. It also helps rid the body of toxins, which can be beneficial to overall health.
Ozone therapy has been shown to be successful in treating a wide variety of diseases and conditions, and could provide an effective treatment option for those unresponsive to traditional medicine.
Indeed, ozone is a biological response modifier that works by stimulating the body's natural healing mechanisms. According to the International Scientific Committee of Ozone Therapy, ozone therapy has been successfully used to:
Balance the Immune System
Improve blood circulation
Increase Energy and Sense of Wellbeing
Dr. Velio Bocci, a leading scientist in ozone therapy, aptly summarizes the diseases treated with ozone therapy when he writes:
“We have good reasons to believe that the therapeutic power of ozone therapy consists of simultaneously improving circulation and oxygen delivery, in enhancing the release of autacoids, growth factors and cytokines and in reducing the endogenous, chronic oxidative stress. In other words, ozone therapy seems to act as a biological response modifier ... ozone triggers a series of biological mechanisms that lead to normalizing the delivery of oxygen for several days with consequent therapeutic effects.”
O3 is the technical term for ozone, or what’s known as "activated oxygen," because it is composed of three oxygen atoms bonded together. Whereas O2 is the technical term for oxygen, which is composed of two oxygen atoms bonded together. O2 in its gas form is essential for human survival. O3 in its gas form is never safe to breathe, but it can be used therapeutically when administered via the bloodstream or other safe passageways into your body. Ozone therapy can be applied through a variety of techniques, such as injections, ear, rectal and vaginal insufflation, and ozonated water and oil, optimizing the way your cells use oxygen.
