Ozone therapy is an alternative treatment that has been around since the 1800s, and has recently become more popular in treating a wide variety of ailments. It is an effective way to strengthen your immune system when it is overwhelmed. At Vitality Wellness Clinic, we safely administer Ozone Therapy as one of our Infusion Lounge services.
How Ozone Therapy works
Ozone is a naturally occurring form of oxygen. Unlike the oxygen we breathe in, which has two oxygen atoms, ozone has three. When medical-grade ozone is administered intravenously, ozone increases the level of oxygen in your bloodstream, allowing your body to intake and use it more effectively. In addition, ozone is one of the chemical oxidants the immune system produces to fight infections. This makes ozone therapy ideal for giving the immune system a boost when it is weakened.
During treatment, some of your blood is drawn and mixed with ozone in a sterile container. It is then slowly reintroduced to your body through IV infusion in a process known as autohemotherapy. Acute infections can be eradicated with three to eight weeks of treatments. For chronic issues or as a preventative treatment, an infusion once every one to three months is recommended.
Diseases treated with Ozone Therapy
As ozone administration disinfects the area around it and activates the immune system, ozone is very effective in reducing the effects of infectious diseases and speeding up the healing process. It can help with bacterial, viral, and fungal infections of all types, including difficult-to-treat infections such as Lyme Disease, herpes, AIDs, and hepatitis.
A stronger immune system can help manage many chronic diseases as well. Promising results have been shown using ozone therapy to treat arthritis, macular degeneration, rheumatism, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, breathing disorders and cardiovascular disease.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy can have a number of benefits even for healthy individuals. It improves blood flow and circulation, clearing impurities from the blood, arteries, and veins. It neutralizes toxins, which helps detoxify your liver and kidneys. Energy and brain function is increases by improved cellular respiration. The productions of hormones and enzymes is normalized, optimizing the protection your body received from antioxidants. The anti-inflammatory properties help reduce pain, as well as treating the inflammation than can be the root cause of many diseases. It also reduces the risk of complications from diabetes and strokes.
