The Benefits of Ozone Therapy: Ozone is a unique form of therapy with many different types and use cases. In general, ozone increases tissue oxygenation by infusing the mitochondria, the power and energy source in our cells, with oxygen, resulting in increased energy. Ozone has the ability to enhance blood flow, and therefore can be used to relieve pain and inflammation. It also up-regulates antioxidant enzyme defenses, scavenging excess free radicals, which is key in rejuvenation and overall health. There’s a lot to unpack there so we’re going to break down the types of ozone therapies available at the American Regenerative Clinic locations and of course these ozone therapy benefits.
High Dose Ozone Therapy
High Dose Ozone is a non-invasive ozone therapy which strengthens weakened areas of the body while improving mobility and pain management. It supplies nearly 50 times the amount of ozone of regular intravenous ozone therapy and can have positive effects on circulation and immunity. Because of the 10-pass method which is used to administer the treatment, it better saturates the red blood cells with oxygen which allows the ozone to penetrate deeper and to greater areas of the body. High Dose Ozone also stimulates the production of new stem cells, activates existing ones, and kills bacteria and viruses.
Benefits of high dose ozone therapy can include reduced swelling, reduced pain and inflammation in joints, limiting damage in the affected area, improving circulation, accelerated healing, slowing the effects of damage from disease, improving quality of life, and improving mobility.
Then, there is Prolozone therapy, a regenerative treatment that is used for any kind of joint pain or injury. It uses ozone to provide nutrition and oxygen to specific areas of the body or specific joints. It is a natural, non-surgical, and minimally invasive treatment made up of two parts. In part one of the procedure, nutrition is added back into the injured area (such as the vertebrae, ligament, tendon, muscle, connective tissue, joint space, etc.) by injecting a syringe of liquid vitamins and minerals into that area. A part of this solution is homeopathics which aid in the control of inflammation and swelling and allow better circulation.
Soon after the vitamin and mineral solution is injected, ozone is injected as well to infiltrate the affected area and spread the solution further than the initial injection can carry it. This allows the solution to become more far-reaching and cover not only the impacted joint, but the muscles, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and tissues surrounding the area. This two-step process starts the regeneration and rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissue in areas where they have become weak or unstable.
Finally, the most advanced form of ozone therapy available today is called EBOO (Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation). EBOO treatments are 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. The closed-circuit environment allows for zero chance of contamination.
EBOO treatment can be used to treat toxicity and an array of chronic illnesses. These include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic hepatitis, colitis, and Crohn’s disease, among others.
Secondary Benefits of Ozone Therapy
If all of that wasn’t enough to get you thinking about how ozone therapies could benefit you or someone you know, there are also secondary benefits to these treatments! Secondary ozone therapy side effects include healthy hair and nails, healthy and radiant skin, improved energy levels, and deeper, more restful sleep. It also does not deplete the body of important electrolytes and other micronutrients.
The ozone treatment that would be recommended for you depends on a multitude of factors that our team can uncover during the consultation portion of your visits to the American Regenerative Clinic. Ozone therapy benefits are vast so talk to us about which could be right for you!
