You may have read about ozone therapy before, or you may have never heard of it. Not to worry, we have you covered! Ozone treatments have been growing in popularity over the past few years and are still considered very innovative. In fact, there are different types of ozone therapies still emerging! We’re going to break down the types of ozone therapies that American Regenerative Clinic locations offer, as well as how they work and what to expect from each.
Intravenous Ozone Therapy
Intravenous ozone therapy is natural regenerative medicine. The regenerative branch of medicine develops methods to repair damaged or diseased cells, organs, or tissues. Intravenous high-dose ozone is a popular form of ozone therapy and has been used to strengthen weakened areas of the body and assist with mobility and agility. This type of ozone therapy is known to be superior to conventional major autohemotherapy. While it has positive effects on circulation and immunity, it also stimulates the production of new stem cells.
The magic of stem cells is that once they’re in the affected area of the body, they can adapt and grow into any type of cell the body needs in order to repair the area. For example, stem cell therapy can assist in stem cells becoming bone cells, cartilage cells, muscle cells, etc. Ozone therapy can also activate existing stem cells.
Prolozone is used for any kind of joint pain relief or injury. It can almost be used as a “tune-up” as we get older and joint pain becomes a natural part of everyday life. Prolozone treatments take place in two parts. The first part adds nutrition back into the injured area whether that be the vertebrae, a ligament, a tendon, a muscle, etc. This is completed by injecting a syringe filled with liquid vitamins and minerals into the affected area. Homeopathics are a part of the mixture, and these aid in the control of inflammation and swelling in order to allow better circulation.
The second part of the process involves ozone, which is injected directly after the vitamin and mineral dosage. The ozone allows the solution to spread further into the affected area and really cover more ground. The combination of these two elements causes the regeneration and rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissue where they have weakened.
With prolozone therapy, you can generally expect 15-25% improvement after each treatment. Patients see improvement in the way of decreased pain levels, increased mobility, flexibility, and ability. People also report a loss of popping or grinding.
Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation
With EBOO (Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation) ozone blood dialysis is the most advanced form of ozone treatment available today. It is a unique form of therapy that heals and detoxifies by stimulating oxygen metabolism, activating the immune system, and eliminating harmful viruses, fungi, bacteria, yeast, and protozoa. It detoxifies blood by filtering it through a machine that adds oxygen and then reintroduces the blood to your body in a closed-circuit environment.
This amazing ozone therapy is being used to treat toxicity and an array of chronic illnesses. These include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic hepatitis, colitis, and Crohn’s disease, among others.
EBOO treatments are usually administered once a week and, typically, patients can expect to notice an improvement between the 2nd and 4th sessions. The full antioxidant defence mechanisms are activated by the 4th treatment. Depending on your healthcare provider’s recommendation, the cycle can be repeated every 3-4 months as needed.
