Ozone therapy is an alternative form of treatment that aims at increasing the level of oxygen in the body and stimulating the immune system. It involves the introduction of ozone gas into the body, which contains three atoms of oxygen, making it rich in oxygen levels. Ozone therapy helps stimulate the immune system, boosts the intake of oxygen, and improves the use of the oxygen. Stimulating the immune system through ozone therapy is a significant step in the treatment of various medical conditions and has been in use for a long time. Medically, ozone therapy is a disinfectant and helpful in treating diseases by alleviating the action of viruses, protozoa, fungi, and bacteria, among others. Some of the well-known benefits of ozone therapy in the provision of better health are as discussed below
1. Increased oxygen in body cells
Ozone therapy helps increase the volume of oxygen delivered to body tissues and cells. It comprises three oxygen atoms than the normal oxygen human beings breathe, which has two atoms only. Human life relies on the intake of oxygen, which means that if we stop breathing, we would die immediately or after a few minutes. Without oxygen, the cells ultimately die, and if the cells die, there is no life.
The administration of Ozone to the body cells leads to high levels of oxygen in the cells, making them give out lots of energy to the body.
Increased oxygen in the cells helps fight diseases that thrive in poorly oxygenated human cells.
2. Useful in medicine and related practices
Over the years, it has been proven that ozone therapy has medicinal benefits. Initially, it was used as a disinfectant and aid in the treatment of various diseases. Research shows that during World War I, ozone was used to sanitize wounds inflicted on soldiers. In addition to acting as a disinfectant, it boosts the flow of blood and yields anti-inflammatory effects in the body. Today, ozone therapy is used in treating diseases by reducing the impact of disease-causing elements such as bacteria, protozoa, viruses, and fungi. Health benefits attached to the use of Ozone include rendering disease-causing agents inactive, speeding up the healing process by stimulating the immune system, improved blood circulation, and enhancing brain functions, among others.
3. Useful in the treatment of various conditions
Ozone therapy is helpful in the treatment of different body conditions owing to its properties. For instance, it is widely used as an anti-aging tool on the basis that it raises the level of oxygen in the blood, thus oxygenating all body tissues. Highly oxygenated body tissues help in improving skin appearance through blood and liver detoxification. Chronic conditions, such as autoimmune disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and chronic fatigue syndrome respond positively to ozone therapy.
It is also useful for weight loss!
Is Ozone safe and non-toxic?
Reports have it that Ozone therapy is safe, but it has significant side effects if misused. It is safe and non- toxic if administered responsibly. Exposure to Ozone harms human lungs and therefore increases the risk of death from respiratory problems. The least exposure to ozone gas can lead to irritation of the lungs and the throat. Coughing, damage to lungs, and shortness of breath are possible results. Severe effects have potential, which may include pulmonary embolism, increased risk of stroke, heart issues, and swelling of blood cells. Looking from the above side effects, which are rare, it is evident that Ozone should not be inhaled.
Some of the possible forms in which Ozone can be used appropriately despite being a gas include
- Application of ozonized olive oil on the skin
- Drinking ozonized water
- The use of injections especially in dentistry
- Through autohemotherapy, which involves drawing blood, mixing it with Ozone, and then putting it back to the system.
If used correctly, ozone therapy is helpful in:
A. Modulating the immune system to function appropriately
Lack of oxygen means that cells and tissues lack enough energy required for normal functioning and therefore weakened immune system. A week immune system is a license to vulnerability to diseases. A weak immune system means that you are likely to recover from an illness slowly or succumb to it. Ozone therapy is a guarantee to a robust immune system because it helps in awakening the system.
B. Revives energy production in the cells
Breathing oxygen helps energize cells in the body, but in most cases, the process of converting oxygen to energy gets inefficient with age. Ozone therapy helps in revitalizing the production of cellular energy to make the energy conversion get back to normal.
C. Treating infections in the body
Diseases result from the entry of microbes into the body and their multiplication. Some of the most common germs are viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungi, and protozoa, among others. The microbes cause infections by initiating unhealthy processes causing harm to the body. Ozone therapy helps stop the growth of the mentioned microbes through disinfection and preventing their growth or spread. Besides, infected cells are flushed out, and the creation of newer ones starts.
Ozone therapy is a safe method useful in boosting human health, but if not used appropriately, it might be toxic and harmful. It has been in use for the last hundred years in boosting immunity and overall health. Reap of all its benefits by having it done by an expert in the right method to avoid regrets and death.
