Despite its impressive health benefits, many people are still not familiar with this treatment and its benefits.

What is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone treatment entails the administration of the colorless ozone gas into your body to treat certain medical conditions

First, ozone gas consists of three oxygen atoms (O3), unlike the two oxygen atoms that make up regular oxygen gas. (1)

How Does Ozone Therapy Work?

When ozone gas comes in contact with body fluids, it forms more red blood cells and proteins. Other than this, it generally increases oxygen concentration in your body. It is from these aspects that the many medical benefits of ozone therapy arise.

Furthermore, the disinfecting properties of ozone gas help kill or inactivate:

  • bacteria
  • viruses
  • fungi
  • yeast
  • protozoa

The result of the disinfection process is a healthy environment for thriving body processes.

Ozone Therapy Benefits

Health and wellness industries use ozone to treat medical conditions discussed below.

Breathing disorders

Patients with breathing disorders are good candidates for ozone gas therapy.

Many breathing disorders arise in the lungs. Ozone increases oxygen concentration in your blood. Therefore, it relieves the stress from the lungs. Your lungs will not have to go overboard in supplying your blood with the needed oxygen. Ozone treatments would have done the work.

Also, working out for smokers or former smokers may become difficult due to an inadequate supply of clean air from the lungs to the bloodstream. Ozone therapy can come in handy in such situations.

Diabetes Treatment

Ozone therapy has shown positive results as alternative medicine in reducing diabetes risk complications. Diabetes complications often arise when the oxidative stress in the body goes high.

So, ozone treatments can fix oxidative stress in the body by activating antioxidants and the body’s immune system. It also reduces inflammation that increases as oxidative stress increases.

Furthermore, ozone therapy has proven to be effective in treating patients with diabetic foot ulcers. An increased supply of oxygen helps close the wounds and reduce the chances of infections in the wounds. Slower or non-healing wounds are a common side effect of diabetes that you can manage using ozone therapy.

Immune Disorders

Ozone stimulates the immune system. Therefore, people with immune disorders are good candidates for medical ozone gas therapy.

Still, under its ability to enhance the immune system, ozone gas reduces HIV viral load in HIV patients. The research confirms that when blood mixes with ozone, gas injects back into the patient’s system; it improves the long-term health of HIV patients.

This is promising, but science needs more research on the role of ozone gas in mitigating the HIV viral load.

Besides, boosting your immune system will result in an overall health boost.

Treatment of Chronic Pain

If you have any of the following, ozone gas therapy may help:

  •  back pain
  • neck pain
  • chronic pain from surgery

Also, patients with chronic disorders such as fibromyalgia use ozone therapy to alleviate pain.

Cardiac Health

Ozone treatment has shown incredible results in improving cardiac health.

If you have had heart disease before, ozone therapy could help as alternative medicine. Cardiac-related diseases that may need ozone gas intervention include:

  • Stroke
  • Peripheral artery diseases such as chronic limb ischemia( a condition in which the limbs get inadequate blood supply)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD)
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart attack

Arthritis Treatment

Scientific studies show that this colorless gas treatment could stand in as an alternative medicine to arthritis patients, thanks to its strong antibacterial properties.

Ozone gas has a wide use to disinfect medical supplies due to its antibacterial properties.

Still under its antibacterial property, ozone gas can resolve issues that do not respond to antibiotic treatments. This is very important in the treatment of arthritis patients. It helps arthritis patients by:

  •  increasing joint mobility
  • reversing damaged tissues
  • fighting chronic inflammation common with arthritis patients
  • powering enzyme activities which in turn stop inflammation at the source

How to Prepare for Ozone Therapy

We recommend that you consult with your doctors or ozone therapy provider concerning your preparation.

Ozone treatment may be done by drawing blood from your blood vessels, mixing it with ozone gas before infusing it back. (2)

If there is a need to draw blood from your system, you need to:

  • have more than 7 hours of sleep the night before
  • eat a healthy breakfast
  • drink plenty of water

Your body needs to be rested to get you through the process.

How is Ozone Therapy Administered?

There are several ways to receive ozone gas therapy. You will discuss the best options for you with your provider or doctor.

The three most popular ways in ozone administration are below:

  • Directly to the tissue: Ozone gas is introduced directly to the tissues of the affected parts. A protective covering is used in the administration of the ozone gas. This is a known proper medical application method when the medical uses are needed for specific tissues, for example, wound healing.
  •  Intravenously: This method of application is used in treating internal problems such as HIV. In this method, blood is drawn from your body. Ozone is then dissolved into the patient’s blood. The blood is injected back intravenously into your system. On the flip side, this method can cause an embolism due to the formation of air bubbles.
  • Intramuscularly: Ozone can also be introduced into the body through an intramuscular injection. Ozone gas is mixed with oxygen before an intramuscular injection.

Your healthcare providers will help you choose the ideal method for you. The ideal method is one that:

  • treats the specifics of a medical condition at hand
  •  ensures maximum benefits
  • ensures minimal side effects.

Ozone Therapy Effectiveness

Ozone therapy remains controversial because of the mixed outcomes that it shows. However, it has shown promising results in the following:

  • Treatment and management of Lyme disease
  • Dental medicine
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Viral diseases such as HIV and AIDS
  • Heart diseases
  •  Infectious diseases
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Degenerative diseases
  • back pain from herniated discs

There is not enough evidence for the FDA to declare safe medical use of ozone in the above conditions. So, More clinical trials are nessasary to find the stand of ozone treatments in the above diseases.

Ozone Therapy Side Effects

First, when inhaled, ozone is a toxic gas. It only has therapeutic effects if administered correctly. If you inhale it, you are most likely to face side effects such as fluid build-up in the lungs, resulting in breathing problems. This may also result in worsening asthma symptoms. Therefore, ensure that the ozone gas use is correct to avoid such issues.

Secondly, ozone gas has three atoms. An odd number of atoms means that it is unstable, and therefore can be unpredictable.

It’s been years since I started Ozone therapy for my ischemia but at E-Vita I found the practitioners and technicians amazingly informative. Have shifted centers for good!

Steven Garcia, Director of Operations

I just had my 6th session of ozone therapy for my arthritis and I am seeing definite results! My mobility is back and I started walking my dog myself! Oh, I missed it!

Sarah Dennis, Business Owner

I never considered alternative therapies my thing, but after I received my first chemo session, things became really hard. I wanted my body to feel good again, and E-vita’s ozone therapy made that possible. Thank you, guys!

Carla Lewis, Analytics Manager

The worst thing about Lyme disease is that it takes years before diagnosis. You change doctors and yet nothing works because the symptoms are so confusing. And even after that, it’s a long run. I have a newfound faith in holistic treatments after finally getting better after years with ozone therapy.
