Ozone for therapeutic purposes
Medical ozone is always used as a mix of pure ozone and pure oxygen. Depending on what it's being used for, the concentration of ozone can range anywhere from 1-100 µg/ml (0.05%-5%). An ozone therapist or a doctor will assess your condition and determine the best course of treatment for you.
Characteristics and effect
Medical ozone is a powerful disinfectant, capable of fighting infections. It can be used to disinfect wounds and to treat diseases caused by bacteria or viruses. Because it improves blood circulation, it is often used to treat circulatory disorders and helps the body perform better.
When used at a low dose, ozone can increase the body’s immunity, meaning it’ll help the immune system to function better.
When your body is exposed to this ozone, it responds by producing cytokines, a special type of messenger cell. Ozone is a great new tool for fighting infection because it stimulates your body's natural defenses to resist disease. This leads to especially successful results in medical ozone treatments, especially for patients who are resistant to other therapies.
Major autohemotherapy has been found to activate the body’s own defence system that destroys free radicals. That's why it's used in chronic inflammatory diseases
Thanks to its selective properties, medical ozone is used in 4 basic areas:
- In the treatment of circulatory disorders and geriatrics
- In the treatment of viral diseases, for example hepatitits from liver diseases or herpes,
- The fat tissues in the body are selectively heated by the RF technology and so there is better clinical outcomes.
- For example, in ulcers that are difficult to heal and inflammatory diseases. For instance, an open sore on the leg (ulcus cruris).
- Inflammatory bowel diseases (colitis, proctitis)
- Burns, scalds and infected wounds, fungal infections
- In cancer treatments, ozone is usually used in the form of "major autohemotherapy" or as "minor autohemotherapy" in low doses as an additive or complementary to your immune system.
If you inhale ozone gas, it can irritate your lungs and cause a lot of problems. On the back of recent clinical studies, five forms of application have been approved:
- Major autohemotherapy
- Minor autohemotherapy
- External therapy
- Rectal or vaginal ozone application
- Intra-articular injection of ozone
