Ozone therapy is a treatment that involves administering ozone gas into your bloodstream to boost your immune system. Ozone is made up of three oxygen atoms. When it enters your body, the resulting reaction increases red blood cells along with beneficial proteins. It can also deactivate harmful pathogens like viruses and bacteria.
During your consultation at Revitalife Medical Center, your provider reviews your medical history and asks about current symptoms and concerns. They can help you decide if ozone therapy is a beneficial option for you or if you should consider other wellness treatments.
You can get ozone therapy by itself or alongside other treatments for various conditions and disorders.
Ongoing research suggests that ozone therapy can improve a variety of medical conditions and their symptoms. Revitalife Medical Center routinely recommends ozone therapy for:
Breathing disorders like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can benefit from ozone therapy because it increases oxygen in your blood to reduce stress on your lungs. Breathing then seems more manageable, and your quality of life may improve.
Because ozone therapy strengthens your immune system, you may benefit from the treatment if your immune system is compromised by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or similar conditions.
Complications from diabetes, like ulcers and nerve problems, often result from oxidative stress. By increasing the oxygen in your system, ozone therapy reduces your chances of experiencing such diabetes complications.
There isn’t much you need to do to prepare for ozone therapy except schedule a consultation at Revitalife Medical Center. You can choose from several ozone therapy methods that dictate how you prepare.
One common way you can get ozone therapy is by mixing the ozone with a drawn sample of your blood and then injecting it back into your body. If you get ozone therapy in this way, you must prepare for the treatment by getting plenty of sleep the night before your appointment and eating a substantial breakfast before you come in for treatment. Be sure you’re well-hydrated and ready for your blood draw.
