Have you considered ozone therapy as a treatment option for your chronic disease or pain management? Maybe you’ve read about the effects of ozone on the natural healing process of our bodies and thought it could be something you should try. Functional medicine employs all kinds of regenerative therapies, including direct intravenous ozone therapy. But direct intravenous ozone therapy comes in a few different forms at the American Regenerative Clinic. Today, we’re going to break down each of these therapies, and which one makes the most sense for specific ailments in patients.
Ozone therapy, in general, takes medical-grade ozone, which is a highly reactive form of pure oxygen and creates a curative response in the body. The reactive properties of ozone actually stimulate the body to heal itself, the cornerstone of regenerative medicine. Below we break down the different ozone therapies so you can determine which one could be a fit for you and your medical condition/s.
Prolozone Direct Intravenous Ozone Therapy
Prolozone therapy can be an effective option to consider for anyone experiencing chronic pain. If you have an old work injury, arthritis, fibromyalgia, or pain from sports like running, you may consider prolozone therapy to assist with the regeneration of muscle tissue.
Prolozone therapy is a natural, non-surgical, and minimally invasive treatment that can regrow, or make new tissue. The procedure is made up of two parts. In the first phase, a syringe of liquid vitamins and minerals is injected into the affected area, which adds nutrition back into areas like your vertebrae, ligaments, tendons, muscles, connective tissue, joint space, etc. The second part of the procedure is where the ozone is introduced to make this therapy truly transformative. Ozone is directly injected to infiltrate the area directly after the first solution is administered, which helps the initial solution to spread further into the affected areas. The combination of the first and second steps of the procedure causes the proliferation, regeneration, and rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissues.
High Dose Ozone Direct Intravenous Ozone Therapy
High Dose Ozone therapy benefits include reduced swelling, pain, and inflammation in joints, improved circulation, accelerated healing, slowing the effects of damage from disease, improved quality of life, and improved mobility. This type of direct intravenous ozone therapy essentially gives your immune system a boost by improving the intake of oxygen. This boost helps your body to repair infected areas and cells.
High Dose Ozone and ozone therapies in general also have secondary side effects including healthier hair and nails, healthier skin, improved energy, and deeper, more restful sleep. It supplies nearly 50 times the amount of ozone of regular intravenous ozone treatments and therefore is a preferred method at the American Regenerative Clinic.
EBOO Intravenous Ozone Therapy
EBOO, which stands for Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation, is the most advanced form of direct intravenous ozone therapy available. It can be used as part of an overall treatment plan for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome, macular degeneration, chronic bladder conditions, Chron’s disease, autoimmune diseases, and more.
The treatment stimulates oxygen metabolism, activates the immune system, and eliminates viruses, fungi, bacteria, yeast, and protozoa from the body. It works by extracting blood from one vein and passing the blood through an EBOO dialysis filter to cleanse it from the debris of destroyed germs, heavy metals, fungus, etc. Then the blood is ozonated in stages. Finally, it is reintroduced to the body through another vein. The entire process happens within a closed system in order to eliminate any possibility of contamination.
