How Ozone Can Help You
Ozone, I’m sure you have heard of this gas consisting of 3 oxygen atoms. It is most commonly found in earth’s atmosphere creating a layer that protects us from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation.
But did you know ozone can be used therapeutically? At SOHMA Integrative Medicine in Long Beach and Lakewood California we offer ozone injection therapy which can be used for a variety of ailments, or a boost of energy. Ozone has anti-inflammatory properties and also acts as a disinfectant, preventing viral replication and killing bacteria. In this article we will look at five other amazing benefits ozone therapy has.
Fortified Immune System
The immune system is the main line of defense to protect your body from viral and bacterial infections. With age comes the decline of your natural immunities. Ozone has amazing anti-inflammatory properties which helps the body be ready to naturally fight off pathogens.
In a short 30 minute session, the immune system becomes stimulated to aid healing. This Improves your blood circulation and cleans your arteries from potential viral and bacterial infection by oxidizing the toxins.
Inflammation can lead to an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body. This is called oxidative stress and is associated with pain and irritation. Inflammatory and pain related ailments and can be greatly improved with ozone therapy.
Toxins build up in the body of everyone, even when taking necessary precautions. Toxins, when built up in the body, can have many adverse effects including the body’s ability to heal itself. Exercise and an improved diet helps to slow down the accumulation of toxins, though a build up can be unavoidable. Ozone therapy detoxification can help with:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Respiratory Problems
- Joint Pain
- Skin Conditions
- Digestive Issues
Pain Relief from Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis affecting over 30 million adults in the United States. Most frequently occurring in the hands, hips and knees. This degenerative joint disease caused pain, stiffness, swelling and reduced range of motion in the affected areas.
Although there is no cure for the damage caused by osteoarthritis, the symptoms can be managed with ozone therapy. Due to ozone’s anti-inflammatory properties it can help reduce swelling, reduce tension in the joints which provides pain relief and increased flexibility.
Helping to improve the quality of life of people suffering from arthritis as well as giving people the ability to delay or avoid more invasive treatment such as surgery is our end goal.
Tightness in the chest can be experienced by people with heart conditions and the feeling of lightheadedness occurs when there is low oxygen saturation in your blood. Ozone therapy can increase the oxygen saturation in red blood cells, which allows more oxygen to be delivered to the heart and other tissue.
In cases of blood clots, the clumping of red blood cells makes it difficult for blood to flow through the smaller capillaries. This decreases blood flow and oxygen to vital organs, ozone therapy can fit through the smallest of blood vessels and helps prevent the clotting.
Antibacterial, Antiviral, Antifungal Properties
Viral infections like the flu and cold affect people every year, especially during the holiday season. Once infected with a virus there is no pill to eliminate it. Though you can take medicine to fight the symptoms, the virus itself is left to run its course.
As ozone has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties it can be used to reduce the number of viral replications in your body. This results in a shorter period of feeling under the weather.
Ozone therapy has also been used to resolve bacterial infection within a couple of days after treatment.
