What To Expect During Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can be used to maintain health as well as treat numerous diseases. If our bodies lack oxygen, it can compromise our immune system, resulting in injury or illness. With ozone therapy, you can expect that blood will be drawn from your body, and will then be infused with ozone. The blood and ozone are mixed within a sterile container, and then the ozone-infused blood will be reinjected into the body by various means. This is called Autohemotherapy, and is the most common way to perform this treatment. The treatments typically take less than one hour.
Ozone therapy works by stimulating an enzyme that releases more oxygen. Ozone is an enhanced version of oxygen and is made up of three oxygen atoms that are found in the body. Increased ozone can fight off bacteria, viruses, infection and disease, as well as help fight eye and skin problems, cancer, decrease sleep apnea and improve energy. It will also enhance your health by increasing autoimmune efficiency so you can fight off disease. You will likely have improved circulation and a decrease of risk of blood clots.
If we are lacking any oxygen in our bodies, it could result in injury or illness, so ozone decreases the chance of this happening. You can also expect that ozone therapy will increase antioxidant defense capabilities and can increase mitochondrial cellular energy, while also improving liver function. You can expect that this treatment will be drug-free and safe. The only side-effects you may encounter might include nausea, coughing, burning eyes and headache. If you are experiencing discomfort, it is best to take breaks between treatments.

What Can Regenerative Medicine Do For You?

Regenerative medicine is a form of treatment whereby the body uses its own resources to heal itself, and is a type of therapy that combines the study of science and medicine to find new sources of healing. There are three major types of regenerative medicine. Rejuvenation, which boosts the body’s own ability to heal itself; replacement, which uses healthy cells to replace damaged cells in the body; and, regeneration, which uses a specific type of cell to restore damaged tissues. There are various ways that regenerative medicine can help you, depending on the injury or disease you might have.
Stem cells are used in regenerative medicine as they have the ability to divide, multiple and specialize to become a variety of cells. They are undifferentiated cells found in the body that can then form into tissues, organs, or whatever the body needs in the injured area. They are pulled from one area of the body and relocated to the area of inflammation or disease. They may form into muscle, bone, tissue or more.
PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is another type of regenerative medicine that can help you. This form of treatment uses the bodies’ own blood plasma to heal injured areas. The plasma is taken from the body, the platelets and plasma are then separated out, and the plasma is injected back in to the body. PRP helps by accelerating the healing process and encourages cell growth.
By using the bodies’ own resources to heal, the patient has more of a chance of fighting a disease or illness. This also provides endless resources for the body to use, rather than finding resources elsewhere. Not only can regenerative medicine heal organs, muscles and tissue, but it can also fight infection and potentially reverse the effects of a disease.

What is Prolotherapy used for?

Prolotherapy, also known as proliferation therapy, relieves chronic pain through an injection of an irritant solution, often a sugar called dextrose. This solution is deposited around an injured or diseased area of the body. Prolotherapy follows the notion that the body can heal itself, and the solution acts as a stimulant for the body to begin regenerating new tissues. The solution increases blood flow and inflammation, jumpstarting the healing process. This is a non-invasive, drug-free and safe procedure that takes about 2-8 sessions to work effectively. At each session, which are spread out between 2-6 weeks over a span of several months, expect to receive multiple injections of the irritant solution.

Prolotherapy is used to heal damaged tendons, ligaments, joints or injury from aging or sports. It can also be used to alleviate back pain, tendonitis, joint pain, osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease and many more. The increase in inflammation in this process increases the blood supply to the area which causes nutrients to start flowing, this then stimulates tissue and repairs the body. New collagen fibers are created and growth factors are deposited in the area, as well.

Prolotherapy is great for strengthening weak joints and creating heightened muscle functionality, such as increased movement and flexibility. If you think you might be interested in Prolotherapy, give us a call and we can set you up with a consultation to go over all the pros, cons and any questions you might have. After that, we’ll get you scheduled for your first appointment.
