At Balance of Life Clinic, serving Northeast Ohio, we take an integrative, whole-body approach to enhance your overall health and well-being. Medical ozone has been used to sterilize medical instruments and treat certain conditions for more than 100 years. It is found to increase blood flow and can help with chronic pain, inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and a multitude of other conditions. Stimulating the body’s self-healing mechanisms with ozone therapy can enhance your vitality as well.
How Does Ozone Therapy Work?
Ozone is a naturally occurring gas made up of three atoms of oxygen. It can be administered intravenously or intramuscularly via injection. This specialized IV therapy can stimulate the immune system and help the body perform better overall. Ozone also optimizes pro- and anti-oxidants, which helps protect your body from infection and disease. Because ozone can normalize your cells’ mitochondrial function and increases oxygen utilization, it provides a wide range of benefits.
Benefits Of Ozone Therapy
Decreased oxygen utilization can result in fatigue, weakness, exercise intolerance, generalized pain, and chronic diseases. Ozone therapy has antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties, and may be useful in treating infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
What Does it Treat?
Autoimmune disorders – Illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, MS, and fibromyalgia can be debilitating and have a significant impact on your quality of life. Ozone therapy can help decrease symptoms like chronic pain, fatigue, and general inflammation in the body.
Respiratory disorders – Because ozone is made up of three oxidative molecules, it increases oxygen levels in the blood, reducing stress on the lungs. People with asthma, COPD, emphysema, and other breathing disorders often find relief with IV ozone therapy.
Wound healing – There is also good news about ozone therapy speeding wound healing. This can be particularly useful for people who suffer from diabetes, as complications such as foot ulcers are often caused by oxidative stress in the body.
Some other conditions that ozone therapy may help treat include:
- Bacterial and viral infections such as pneumonia, strep, influenza, hepatitis, and HIV
- Joint pain
- Heart conditions and deep vein thrombosis
- Eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration
- Skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne, and skin infections
- Chronic fatigue
- Reducing the effects of aging
This is just a sampling of the conditions for which ozone therapy may be effective. If you have questions about whether this alternative treatment is right for you, please make sure to ask one of our integrative medicine providers at Balance of Life Clinic.
What To Expect During IV Ozone Therapy
Ozone is water-soluble and can be administered intravenously using your own blood. A sample of your blood is drawn, mixed with ozone, and infused back into your body through an IV drip. The process usually takes less than an hour. Typically, patients don’t have side effects after undergoing this type of ozone therapy, and you’ll likely see improvement of various conditions after just a few sessions.
Preparing For IV Ozone Therapy
Make sure to eat and drink plenty of water prior to your appointment. Our providers will let you know if there are any other specific steps you need to take before or after treatment.
