Ozone therapy is an alternative medicine therapy that mobilizes stem cells from your bone marrow. It offers several anti-aging benefits, boosts your energy, and can reduce symptoms of several medical conditions.
During ozone therapy, you’re exposed to ozone gas. It’s a form of oxygen: the same kind of oxygen that creates a protective layer around the Earth, protecting against the sun’s harmful rays.
Ozone irritates your airways when you inhale it. So ozone therapy involves either infusing ozone gas into your body or adding it to a sample of blood before putting the blood back into your system. It can kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other infectious pathogens.
Many conditions benefit from ozone therapy at Healthy Living Visiting Physicians. Dr. Aliza recommends the treatment after reviewing your medical history and any current conditions you have.
Dr. Aliza routinely recommends ozone therapy to treat:
Ozone therapy also helps you build up T-cells, which play a crucial role in your immune system. T-cells activate other immune cells, kill infected cells, and regulate much of the process of immunity.
Many people don’t experience any side effects from ozone therapy. However, it’s possible to experience a particular side effect called the Herxheimer reaction, which involves flu-like symptoms. This reaction is temporary and doesn’t happen to everyone. While you might feel a little worse in the short-term, you can still experience the benefits of the treatment.
The only time that ozone therapy is potentially harmful is if or when you accidentally inhale the gas. Ozone inhalation can cause severe headaches, coughing, nausea, vomiting, and respiratory complications. Fortunately, Dr. Aliza ensures that you’re never in a situation where this can happen.
Dr. Aliza tells you how to prepare for ozone therapy before you undergo the treatment at Healthy Living Visiting Physicians. Because ozone therapy involves a blood draw, you should be sure to eat a substantial meal before you head to your appointment. It also benefits you to get plenty of sleep the night before your visit.
