Do you suffer from joint pain, inflammation, heart disease, asthma, or other ailments that doctors may have had a hard time treating? Consider ozone therapy — an exciting and powerful alternative therapy that can treat an incredible amount of different ailments and maladies.
5 Benefits of Ozone Therapy
What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone therapy adds a controlled amount of the oxygen-composed molecule, ozone — also known as O3 — as a healthy free radical that allows your body to change its chemistry for the better. It is a treatment that has been around for more than 150 years, and yet it is a relatively unknown treatment for many people. To learn more about Ozone therapy and how it works, check out our blog on How Does Ozone Therapy Work.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
While ozone therapy can be administered in different ways and with different compositions resulting in many different benefits across the board, in this blog we will be focusing on the 5 main benefits reported by those who receive ozone therapy treatments.
1. Germicidal Effects
Ozone generators were often used as a way to treat contaminated drinking water in water treatment facilities. Because of this, researchers realized that ozone is also effective at treating bacterial infections, even when the bacteria are resistant to antibiotics. It has also been known to be an effective treatment for getting rid of parasites and removing toxic mold and mycotoxins. This is why ozone therapy can be prescribed as a way to treat exposure to black mold and other dangerous molds and bacteria.
2. Anti-Inflammatory Action
While it may seem counterintuitive to use oxidative therapy in your body to decrease inflammation, ozone is actually an extremely effective way to treat chronic inflammation. This is because when your body comes in contact with a controlled concentration of ozone, it oxidizes lipids and creates ozonides — potent molecules that act as second messengers that activate various systems in your body. The antioxidant and immune systems are modulated reducing systemically chronic and acute inflammation.
When your muscles become inflamed, they release free radicals naturally as a way to produce glutathione and superoxide dismutase, which are two of the strongest antioxidants in the human body. Ozone also activates heat shock proteins which produce the same effect you get from sitting in a hot sauna.
3. Brain Function
One of the most remarkable effects of ozone therapy is that it has been known to help repair brain damage caused by strokes. It is believed this is because the ozonides (lipperoxides) produced by the oxidation of O3 can cross the blood-brain barrier and reach your brain which has one of the highest concentrations of mitochondria in the body. Because mitochondria naturally produce free radicals, it is believed that by introducing a healthy free radical like ozone activates those same effects, allowing your brain to heal faster than it would on its own. This also explains why many people report having less brain-fog and higher brain function after receiving ozone therapy.
4. Increased Energy
Your muscles have the highest concentration of mitochondria in your body, and as such, receiving ozone therapy is a great way to help your muscles feel refreshed which naturally gives you more energy which accounts for many ozone therapy patients reporting a general sense of feeling energized after treatment. Also, the red blood cell metabolism is super activated, generating more ATP (energy money of your body) and the hemoglobin is much more effective transporting the oxygen in your blood.
5. Tissue Regeneration
Ozone treatments have also been known to accelerate the healing of wounds. This is especially useful for wounds that are chronic in nature or that are difficult to treat such as spinal injuries, and chronic pain.
