Ozone is a naturally occurring gas that is found in the Earth's atmosphere. It is created when oxygen molecules (O2) are exposed to high levels of ultraviolet radiation or electrical discharge. This process causes the oxygen molecules to split apart and recombine as ozone (O3). Ozone is often referred to as "activated oxygen" because it is a highly reactive and powerful oxidizing agent. In recent years, ozone therapy has become increasingly popular as a complementary treatment for a wide range of health conditions. In this article, we will explore the benefits of ozone therapy for your health.
Ozone therapy involves the administration of ozone gas into the body. This can be done in several ways, including intravenous injections, ozone sauna therapy, ozone insufflation, and topical applications. Each method has its unique benefits and is used to treat different health conditions.
One of the most significant benefits of ozone therapy is its ability to boost the immune system. Ozone stimulates the production of white blood cells, which are essential for fighting off infections and diseases. Additionally, ozone can help regulate the immune system by reducing inflammation and increasing the body's production of antioxidants.
Ozone therapy has also been shown to improve circulation and oxygenation in the body. Ozone works by increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood, which helps to improve cellular function and enhance energy levels. Additionally, ozone therapy can help to reduce oxidative stress and improve cardiovascular health.
Another benefit of ozone therapy is its ability to promote detoxification. Ozone can help to break down toxins and eliminate them from the body. This can be particularly helpful for people with chronic illnesses or those who have been exposed to environmental toxins.
Ozone therapy has also been used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Ozone can help to reduce inflammation and promote healing by increasing oxygenation and blood flow to the affected areas.
We are excited to announce we are offering Ozone Therapy by our new Functional Medicine Family Nurse Practitioner, Stephanie Tullar.
Overall, ozone therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for a wide range of health conditions. However, it is important to work with a qualified healthcare provider who is trained in ozone therapy to ensure that it is administered safely and effectively.
