Part of our practice is using natural means to treat illnesses and injuries. Autohemotherapy, or ozone therapy, is one of the tools in our toolbox to treat diseases naturally. Here is what you need to know about ozone therapy.
What Is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone is a natural gas made up of three oxygen atoms. This natural gas has many different uses in science and medicine. In medicine, ozone is used to improve the body’s intake and use of oxygen, as well as to activate and boost the immune system.
How Autohemotherapy Works
Autohemotherapy works very similarly to getting an IV vitamin drip. First, blood is withdrawn from the vein into a bag, and ozone is added and mixed with your blood. Then, this is dripped back into your vein. This is thought to be the most therapeutic way to administer ozone therapy, and it has been in use since the 60s.
Ozone therapy can treat a number of conditions and illnesses. It is frequently used for:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Chronic allergies
- Autoimmune diseases
- Bacterial and viral infections
- Vascular disorders
Ozone therapy has been used as a complementary treatment to oncology for cancer patients in certain conditions.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
There are several ways that ozone therapy can benefit you. It is very effective for inactivating bacteria, viruses, and yeast among other infections. It is also very effective for boosting the immune system to promote healing. It also improves circulation, purifies the blood, and normalizes hormone production. It can also be used as an anti inflammatory.
Is Ozone Therapy Right for You?
You may be thinking that this seems like an awfully simple treatment that can benefit a number of your own health concerns. It might seem too good to be true. It is important to remember that ozone therapy isn’t for everyone. Patients with hyperthyroidism should not have ozone therapy. You should also avoid ozone therapy during pregnancy, and it is not indicated for use with leukemia patients.
