Ozone Therapy

What is Ozone Therapy?

Ozone in the medical world is made of pure oxygen using a special generator designed specifically for medical use. It does not contain hydrocarbons, nitrates, peroxides, sulphur oxides or any other potentially toxic material. Medical grade ozone is pure oxygen, nothing else. When ozone is introduced into the body an amazing thing occurs, it stimulates the mitochondria in your cells ten times better than O2 can to use the oxygen they get more efficiently, which enables faster healing. Ozone oxidizes and disinfects and is used as a germicide in water treatment. When used in the body it can aide in the healing of tissues and is beneficial for its antibacterial and antiviral effects.

 

Ozone specifically affects the membranes of white blood cells (WBC) to produce cytokines, which are important cells that help to heal and regenerate damage and infected tissues. Ozone stimulates oxygen utilization by the tissues which improves circulation and stimulates mitochondrial energy production. Chronic inflammatory conditions frequently cause impaired circulation which can cause pain, inflammation and tissue damage. Introducing Ozone can help to repair and stimulate regeneration and healing.

Benefits of Ozone Therapy

  • Increases tissue oxygenation

  • Increases circulation

  • Increased production of cellular ATP which results in more energy and faster recovery

  • Helps prevent sore muscles by oxidizing lactic acid

  • Reduces swelling, bruising and pain from injuries and increases healing time

  • Helps prevent and treat bacterial and viral infections

  • Enhances Immunity

  • May eliminate the need for antibiotics

  • May increase hormone production in the body, thereby decreasing the need for artificial hormone therapy

Types of Ozone Therapy

Ozone Sauna

An Ozone Sauna is an indoor sauna pod. It is a fiberglass body that can easily fit into a small space. This pod or chamber has two doors an adjustable seat and an opening for your head. The pod is used with reverse osmosis or distilled water. When it's time for a treatment the sauna will be set by a tech to a specific temperature, once it reaches the desired temperature you will enter the pod. The sauna is equipped with an oxygen tank and ozone generator. The oxygen is run through the generator and as a result the ozone is introduced into the cabinet.

 

First the steam is going to heat your body up. This opens and dilates all the blood vessels in your skin so that the ozone can be absorbed better. The heat also provides an aerobic effect similar to exercise causing your heart rate to go up. Don't worry this is just as beneficial as it is when you are exercising. As the ozone interacts with your skin it will create peroxides, these peroxides will then be absorbed into our bloodstream and as a result will produce systemic effects beneficial to you.

 

Benefits of Ozone Sauna:

  • Increases the delivery of oxygen to the cells

  • Increases oxygen utilization

  • Causes the body to release endorphins and enkephalins, feel good molecules your body produces to reduce the impact of stress on the body

  • Reduces inflammation and pain

  • Stimulates detoxification

  • Stimulates antioxidant enzymes

  • Ozone if directly toxic to all microbes

  • Skin purifier

  • Detoxifies the body by helping you burn fat and sweat to release toxins

  • Enhances circulation

  • Relaxes muscles by reducing buildup of lactic acid and increasing muscle flexibility

  • Kills viruses, fungi, and bacteria by direct contact

  • Excretes heavy metals

  • Purifies blood and lymphatic system

  • Relieves joint aches and arthritis pain

  • Increases fat burning

  • Weight Management

  • Calms Anxiety

Ozone Bagging for Wound Healing and Infection

Ozone is safe and effective alternative for wound and infection healing in a non-healing wound, trauma or even rash. The wound is covered with a plastic bag, sealing it off to outside air while humidified Ozone is infused into the bag. This will help to stimulate the cells to repair and heal the tissues and aide in destruction of the infection source.

Ozone Insufflation for Allergy Relief, Ear and Sinus Illnusses

Ozone insufflation is a safe and effective treatment for seasonal allergy relief, ear and sinus infection and pain and congestion for ALL ages! Ear insufflation is a safe and painless therapy that involves wearing a modified stethoscope for a few minutes while the Ozone generator pumps Ozone into the ear canals.

 

Ear insufflation has been shown to help with:

  • Ear infections, pain, congestion

  • Sinus infections, pain, congestion

  • seasonal allergies

  • Swollen glands

  • Sore throat and throat infections

IV Ozone Therapies

Ozone can be given intravenously with normal saline, nutritional supplements or a patient’s own

blood. Blood can be withdrawn, mixed with saline and Ozone and then re-infused back into the

blood stream. Ozone IV's help to stimulate the immune system and helps treat certain viruses.

It also helps detox the liver, purify blood cells and enhances cellular metabolism.

 

Benefits if IV Ozone Therapies:

  • Increases tissue oxygenation

  • Increased production of cellular ATP which results in more energy and faster recovery

  • Helps prevent sore muscles by oxidizing lactic acid

  • Reduces swelling, bruising and pain from injuries and increases healing time

  • Helps prevent and treat bacterial and viral infections

  • Enhances Immunity

  • May eliminate the need for antibiotics

  • May increase hormone production in the body, thereby decreasing the need for artificial hormone therapy

Ozone Injections for Muscles, Tendons, and Large Joints

Ozone can be injected into muscle, tendons, and large joint spaces to stimulate cytokines, WBC and trigger RBC to enhance oxygen supply to tissues. This can reduce pain, edema, inflammation, and nerve compression while improving tissue nutrition and oxygen supply. Ozone has been shown to inhibit inflammatory metabolites that can prevent future inflammation.
