Ozone therapy refers to the process of administering ozone gas into your body to treat a disease or wound. Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three atoms of oxygen (O3). It can be used to treat medical conditions by stimulating the immune system. It can also be used to disinfect and treat disease. In the hospital, ozone therapy gas is made from medical-grade oxygen sources.
How it works
Ozone therapy works by disrupting unhealthy processes in the body. It can help stop the growth of bacteria that are harmful. For example, if you have an infection in your body, ozone therapy could stop it from spreading. Research has shown ozone therapy to be effective at treating infections from:
Ozone therapy also helps flush out infected cells. Once the body rids itself of these infected cells, it produces new, healthy ones.
What it helps treat
Ozone therapy is used for a variety of conditions.
People with any type of breathing disorder may be good candidates for ozone therapy. By providing more oxygen to your blood, ozone therapy can help reduce the stress on your lungs. Your lungs are responsible for supplying oxygen to your blood.
Clinical trials for people with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are currently in progress.
Ozone therapy is also showing promise in reducing the risk of complications from diabetes. Complications are usually caused by oxidative stress in the body. If ozone therapy can bring new, fresh oxygen to the blood and tissues, people with diabetes could have much better outcomes.
People with diabetes also experience poor wound healing. According to one study, ozone therapy could be helpful for repairing skin and tissue.
Ozone therapy may have benefits for people with immune disorders because it can help stimulate the immune system. An older in-vitro study from 1991 found evidence that ozone therapy could completely inactivate the HIV virus. A follow-up study did not find ozone therapy to offer any therapeutic value to people with HIV, however. More research is needed on the use of ozone therapy for the treatment of HIV.
