As a growing number of patients discover the health advantages and healing power of medical ozone treatments, many often ask the question, why does ozone provide lasting benefits unlike other – more traditional – forms of therapy?
Ozone (O3) is a gas made up of three oxygen atoms. It has been used both therapeutically and preventively for more than 150 years to treat various conditions and diseases by stimulating the immune system, increasing circulation, and helping the body heal itself. Medical ozone can also be used as a way to remain healthy and help avoid disease altogether.
The Multiple Benefits of Ozone Treatments
Whether administered by injection or IV infusions, ozone treatments offer multiple benefits:
- They’re a safe and effective treatment option for a wide variety of conditions, including:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Bacterial infections
- Circulatory disorders
- Fungal infections
- Viral infections
- They have few, if any, side effects.
- They’re minimally invasive and do not require surgery or medication.
- They can be combined with other forms of treatment. In fact, ozone therapy can help speed up the healing process after surgery and strengthen your immune system to fight infection if you are undergoing chemotherapy.
The Reasons Behind Ozone Therapy’s Lasting Benefits
Ozone is a supercharged oxygen molecule that’s used to treat a variety of medical conditions, such as joint and muscle pain, disc herniations, sports injuries, back pain, arthritis, and more.
Ozone therapy is a regenerative treatment, meaning it utilizes the body’s own mechanisms to stimulate and boost healing. Ozone therapy can stimulate cells to proliferate, signal your body’s stem cells to mobilize to the area of treatment, and improve the ability of cells to deal with oxidative stress. Ozone therapy can also improve blood flow to the area of treatment, increase lymphatic drainage, and decrease inflammation. All of these qualities help the body heal in a more comprehensive manner, leading to long-term relief rather than temporary alleviation of symptoms, which commonly occurs with other treatments.
