Ozone (O3) is simply three oxygen molecules bonded together. The oxygen you breathe is two oxygen molecules bonded together. This extra oxygen molecule takes the oxygen you are used to breathing and creates a powerful oxidizer and purifier that can be used to detoxify your body.
Ozone therapy is a simple, effective, and safe treatment for detoxifying your body and helping to aid the body’s natural systems to promote healing and wellbeing. There are typically three types of ozone therapy:
Direct application: In this type of therapy, ozone is applied directly to the affected area, such as a wound, sore, or skin condition. The ozone is contained against the skin by a protective covering that allows the gas to remain in contact with the skin for the duration of the therapy.
Intramuscular: Intramuscular ozone therapy involves the mixing of oxygen with ozone that is then injected directly into the muscles near or at the affected area.
Intravenous: Sometimes also referred to as autohemotherapy, IV therapy is one of the most common forms of ozone therapy, with the longest history of usage. During this treatment, your care provider will take a sample of your blood, infuse it with ozone, and reinject it into your body. IV ozone therapy is most useful for treating internal infections.
Ozone is an extremely potent oxidizer. It is capable of deactivating or killing even the toughest bacteria, viruses, and fungi. In addition to its powerful oxidizing properties, it is thought to help activate and support your immune system. In essence, ozone therapy helps your body to fight infection and disease on two fronts: It helps your body to mount its natural defense while acting as an external force for better health.
