Ozone therapy involves the administration of ozone gas into the body. This is done to help
treat wounds and also in the treatment of diseases. Ozone is a gas that does not have any
color and is used by doctors to treat different medical problems. This gas, once
administered into the body, helps by disinfecting and treating various diseases. The most
important benefit to using ozone therapy is it helps to fuel the immune system. When used
in hospitals, the ozone gas is sourced from medical-grade oxygen sources.
How does it work?
Ozone therapy does its work by causing an interruption in the unhealthy conditions in the
human body. One of the benefits it provides is that of stopping the proliferation of harmful
bacteria. Ozone therapy also helps to prevent infections in the body from spreading. In fact,
it has also proved to be effective in the treatment of infections caused by bacteria, viruses,
fungi, yeast and protozoa. Once injected into the body, ozone gas helps to remove infected
cells. When these infected cells are removed, fresh and healthy ones grow in their place.
What should ozone therapy be used for?
If you have a breathing disorder, then injecting ozone into your body can have desirable
results. High amounts of oxygen in the blood helps to remove lung stress. This is important
because it is the job of the lungs to supply oxygen to the blood in your body.
Ozone therapy has been proven to be effective in the treatment of diabetes. Diabetic
complications arise because of oxidative stress. When fresh oxygen is added to the blood
and blood tissues, it helps to reduce diabetes. If you are diabetic, there is a strong likelihood
that your body is not able to heal its wounds well. Ozone therapy is effective in repairing
skin and tissues.
If you suffer from immune problems, then using ozone therapy can help treat your
condition. In fact, it is known to put an end to the HIV virus and so is often used to treat
people suffering from HIV.
How is ozone therapy applied?
Ozone therapy can be applied in three different ways. One option is to apply it straight to
tissue. This is an option that is used to treat wounds and problems with the extremities.
Second, ozone can be applied intravenously. This is an option that is used to treat HIV and
internal disorders. Finally, it can also be applied through the muscles. When this option is
chosen, the ozone gas has to be mixed with the patient’s blood.
How effective is it?
The results obtained from using ozone therapy are a mixed bag though sometimes the
results obtained are actually very promising. It has also proven to be effective in treating
those who are suffering from COPD and cystic fibrosis. Ozone therapy has also been found
to be effective in treating back pain.
Are there any side effects?
Ozone therapy is not a very common treatment option mainly because of associated risks.
Since ozone gas is an unstable gas there is a strong likelihood that its use can lead to
unpredictable results. Thus, it should only be used after a medical practitioner recommends
it. Before opting for this treatment, it makes sense to consult a doctor to find out what risks
are associated and whether these are fewer than the benefits provided.
How much does it cost?
There is no definite cost of ozone therapy because each treatment is dependent on the
patient’s condition and treatment duration. Mostly, this kind of treatment is not covered by
insurance plans and it is certainly not covered by Medicaid.
Should you opt for it?
At present, studies are being conducted to find out whether ozone therapy is a worthwhile
treatment option. When used on mice suffering from nerve damage, ozone therapy has
proved to be effective. In addition, it is also effective in fighting new bacteria. The bottom
line is this form of treatment holds a lot of promise and if your doctor recommends it, then
you can go ahead and use it to treat your condition.
