These days, more and more people are seeking alternative, more natural solutions to conventional medicine and treatments. One of these forms of alternative medicine is ozone therapy, which offers a multitude of health benefits.
Have you heard of ozone therapy? Have you tried it?
What is ozone therapy?
Ozone therapy is the use of ozone gas as a medical treatment for various ailments, often used in conjunction with other treatments.
- In over 45 countries;
- By over 26,000 physicians;
- And growing!
In Europe, ozone has been used:
- For over 50 years;
- By over 10 000 physicians;
- To treat over an estimated 10 million patients.
8 (of many) benefits of ozone in the body:
#1 Stimulates and strengthens the immune system
Ozone oxygenates of all the tissues, organs and cells of the body. This boosts the immune system, and enhances blood and oxygen delivery throughout the body. This makes the body stronger and more capable of fighting against illness, disease and infection, and improves overall health.
#2 Stimulates white blood cells
Ozone therapy stimulates the release of anti-cancer substances from the white blood cells of the immune system. It also prevents some types of cancer by counteracting cell mutations.
#3 Destroys fungi, bacteria and viruses
As it does with water, ozone removes viruses and bacteria from the blood, thus preventing infection and fighting disease.
Working in combination with heat-generating saunas, ozone has been shown to assist with the body’s natural detoxifying process.
#5 Therapy for Athletes
Ozone therapy helps to eliminate lactic acid in the body, which helps athletes recover faster after exercise. It also relieves inflammation and reduces aches and stress on muscles and joints.
#6 Increased energy
Ozone increases the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – the body’s useable energy. By oxygenating the body, ozone encourages it to produce energy more efficiently.
#7 Ozone for weight loss
Ozone therapy claims to aid weight loss when combined with an appropriate diet and healthy habits. Obesity and harmful habits such as drinking alcohol, eating fast food and smoking lead to the destruction of oxygen and the accumulation of toxins in the body. Ozone therapy works by eliminating toxicity and aiding weight loss.
#8 Ozone for the skin
The largest organ in the body, the skin, can be infected by many types of harmful microorganisms. A study found that topical ozone therapy has proven to be one of the strongest antiseptics against the majority of microorganisms involved in skin infections, burns, acne, ulcers, open sores and wounds, fungus and skin disorders.
How does the treatment work?
The ozone used in ozone therapy is mixed and can be used in many ways, depending on the area of treatment:
- Subcutaneous injections to treat inflammation and pain in localised areas such as joints and muscles.
- Administered intravenously with a saline solution and can be injected to treat varicose veins and other circulation problems.
- Ozone therapy for the skin is applied using ozone vapour, a localised blowing method with oxygen and ozone or saunas.
