Explore the Many Benefits of Ozone Therapy

Ozone gas is a form of oxygen. Medical ozone has been used for over 100 years to disinfect medical supplies and to treat certain conditions. While ozone in the air is a lung irritant, it can be beneficial when applied as a therapeutic regimen.

Research suggests that ozone therapy may also be useful in treating multiple conditions, from infections to autoimmune conditions. Here, the naturopathic medical doctors at Integrative Medica in Salt Lake City, Utah, explain more about ozone therapy to help you understand whether it might be right for you.

How ozone therapy works

Ozone therapy is administered by injections of ozone gas into your body’s tissues. Ozone therapy can limit the negative effects of viruses, fungi, bacteria, yeasts, mold, and toxins. It’s considered a way to detoxify your body. Many health conditions can be treated with ozone therapy, including:

It’s important to have ozone therapy administered by a medical professional. Ozone gas is harmful to humans when not properly handled. Medical ozone is different from the ozone in the atmosphere. Medical-grade ozone is produced by combining oxygen with ozone gas, resulting in a mixture that is 1%-5% ozone and 95%-99% oxygen.

Other conditions ozone therapy can treat

Ozone therapy can modulate the immune system and reverse oxygen deficits that may be present in the body. This therapy can assist in treating a wide variety of conditions. They include:

With many of the above conditions, ozone therapy is complementary to other treatments you may be receiving. You should consider ozone therapy as a means to make other treatments more effective and improve your overall wellness. 

How ozone is administered

When you seek ozone therapy at Integrative Medica, the first step is a comprehensive physical examination and a review of your overall health. You may have X-rays, urine tests, blood tests, and other tests to get a complete picture of your health before you undergo ozone therapy.

The providers at Integrative Medica use ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) to increase the effectiveness of ozone therapy. UBI exposes your blood to ultraviolet light to boost your immune system’s response to the treatment. 

What to expect from ozone treatment

Unlike many other procedures, there’s no downtime or recovery needed after ozone therapy treatments. You also don’t have to worry about pain from the injections; your skin is numbed beforehand. You can return to your normal activities immediately after receiving ozone therapy.

How soon you notice results from ozone treatment is a highly individual matter. You might feel better right away, or you may need to receive a few treatments.

If you’re looking for a way to detoxify your body and improve your health, you might want to try ozone therapy. Call the providers at Integrative Medica today, or book an appointment online.
