Day in and day out, our bodies are exposed to various harmful pathogens – such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and toxic elements – that can lead to all sorts of medical problems. What keeps most of us healthy is a strong immune system of cells, tissues, and organs that is designed to identify and ward off these pathogens.
If your immune system is weak, it could fail to protect you from infection or illness. Diet and exercise can only do so much to help bolster your deficient immune system, especially on a cellular level.
One of the most effective ways to strengthen your immune system and keep you healthy is to undergo oxygen ozone infusion therapy.
How Oxygen Ozone Infusion Can Supercharge Your Immune System
Ozone (O3) is a natural gas that, when combined with oxygen (O2), creates treatments with significant healing capabilities. In fact, oxygen ozone therapy has been used by health and medical professionals for more than 150 years, with clinically proven benefits for a variety of health conditions, including autoimmune diseases.
Immune optimizing infusions are super-charged injections that include antioxidants, ozone, vitamins, minerals, supplements, and regenerative agents. Also referred to as ozone immunotherapy, IV ozone infusion involves the mixture of a small sample of your blood with an equal amount of O3, which is then reinfused into your bloodstream intravenously.
Oxygen ozone infusions boost your immune system in many ways:
- It increases oxygen delivery to your tissues, giving your body the strength to fight back against harmful pathogens.
- It stimulates your immune (white blood) cells.
- It can inactivate bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa.
- It regulates specific cytokines (proteins that are released by your cells).
Certain cytokines have anti-viral effects, while others trigger inflammation, as a protective response against foreign invaders such as viruses, bacteria, or fungi. Other cytokines regulate your T-cells, which are part of your immune system and develop from stem cells in your bone marrow to help protect your body from infection. Other cytokines have anti-tumor effects. Together, cytokines enable your immune system to destroy microbes, control viral replication, and kill off cancer cells.
In one of many clinical studies, it was found that ozone administered in a concentration between 30 and 55 ug/cc caused the greatest increase in the production of interferon (a natural substance that enables your immune system to fight off infection and disease) and the greatest output of tumor necrosis factor and interleukin-2, which positively affects the development of your immune system.
For example, oxygen ozone therapy was used during the COVID-19 crisis in Italy, where it helped many patients recover more quickly and avoid serious complications and hospitalization. In addition to boosting the immune system, oxygen ozone infusions have been instrumental in treating chronic conditions including arthritis, as well as back and neck pain.
