From anti-aging, boosting the immune system to the alleviation of pain, ozone has a wide variety of benefits.
Many physicians outside the United States use ozone routinely and it has been rapidly gaining popularity in the US. Ozone infusions and injections are the most popular routes to receive ozone. Ozone is a naturally occurring colorless gas in the earth’s atmosphere. Medical ozone is not the same as atmosphere ozone. Medical ozone is create in a clinical setting with an oxygen tank and an ozone generator. Ozone has three oxygen atoms, O3. We think of ozone as supercharged oxygen with many powerful healing properties. That’s why medical ozone provides broad spectrum of health benefits.
What are the most common uses of Ozone?
Ozone has the capacity to stimulate the immune system, regenerate cells, decrease inflammation, reduce pain, shortening the recovery period from injury and surgery, as well as to provide an overall feeling of wellness.
Many patients with joint, back, neck, and shoulder pain seek out ozone injection procedures to decrease pain and return to their previous level of activity, without surgery. Many patients experience completely removal of pain. Ozone can be directly injected into an arthritic knee, shoulder, back, or neck to provide powerful healing and regeneration.
Ozone is a powerful regenerative and anti-aging tool that works at the cellular level in many ways. One of the many benefits of ozone is its ability to supercharge the body’s antioxidant enzymes, which reduces the free radicals that cause inflammations and damages to your cells. This allows physicians to use ozone not only as a treatment to reverse some unhealthy effects of aging but also as a preventative treatment to slow down aging and enable healthy aging.
Ozone is a powerful immune system booster. Ozone infusion treatments can optimize your immune system and provide your body with powerful tools to defend itself and warm off inflammation better. Ozone also kills pathogens such as viruses and harmful bacteria. This property of ozone is very important in the present pandemic.
Ozone treatments reduce inflammation, which, if unchecked, wreaks havoc on your cells, and causes unhealthy aging and degeneration. Reducing inflammation is a key part of keeping you healthy, young, and pain-free, so ozone plays a major role in any anti-aging protocol.
One extremely powerful ozone injection procedure to mention is the treatment for disc herniations. Superior to surgery, the ozone disc injection procedure is a very effective, safe, and long-lasting treatment for painful disc herniations. This non-surgical treatment for disc herniation is effective and safe, it has no known surgery-related side effects. Your natural disc anatomy is not in any way changed, unlike surgery during which your disc anatomy is forever changed. Surgery often involves fusion of the vertebrae and limits natural movement. In a study noted in the International Journal of Spine Surgery, patients were treated with an intradiscal injection of ozone in 2002-2003. Follow-up occurred at five years and ten years. At 5 years 82% of the participants available for follow-up had avoided surgery and still were experiencing a reduction in pain. At 10 years, 88% of the available participants had avoided surgery as well and reported a reduction in pain. Studies like this prove the long-lasting positive effects of ozone treatments.
How is medical ozone administered?
For the treatment of painful joints and muscles, ozone is injected directly into the affected structure. It is an office procedure with no downtime afterward. Ozone herniated disc treatments are outpatient procedures performed at a surgical center under fluoroscopic guidance and local anesthetics. Patients go home after the procedure and resume their normal activities the next day. For anti-aging and immune system optimization, ozone is administered via an IV drip, infused first with your own blood. Both are an office procedure that takes about 1-2 hours and there is no downtime afterward.
Is medical ozone safe?
Yes. Ozone has been used for medical treatments for over 100 years and its safety record is well documented in the medical literature. When administered properly, it has no known side effects.
Are ozone shots for you?
You owe it to yourself to investigate all procedures available to you to reduce your pain. Or you can use ozone by other methods to slow the aging process and boosting your immune system. Whatever your reason, ozone remains a viable, effective, minimally invasive procedure that has a positive effect and can have you living your best life.
