Finding an effective treatment that offers relief without side effects can feel like a miracle when you suffer from chronic pain or disease. When that treatment doesn’t require life-altering medications, it can be more complicated to discern how much is too much. Here we talk about Ozone Therapy.
Ozone therapy offers many patients who’ve become frustrated with the limits of conventional medication a new opportunity to find relief from pain and restore their body’s function. However, its wide range of benefits leaves many patients to wonder how often they can experience the rewards of the treatment.
How Does Ozone Therapy Work?
Ozone therapy begins with an unstable form of oxygen called ozone. While oxygen has two molecules, ozone has three, making it reactive and causing it to try to steal electrons to provide it with the stability it seeks.
Ozone therapy treatments is administered to a patient intravenously. The ozone enters the system and steals electrons from unhealthy processes or foreign invaders in the body. While you can’t tell ozone what to attack and what to leave in place, it can target elements in the body that can’t defend themselves, like viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold, toxins, and free radicals.
When ozone enters your bloodstream, it fosters the production of glutathione, an essential antioxidant that can prevent damage to cells caused by reactive oxygen.
How Often Can I Undergo This Therapy?
As with most treatments, repetition is vital. This type of therapy produces the best results when patients maintain a consistent schedule of treatments a week that is best determined by your medical provider.
Patients in physical distress who have seen the benefits of ozone therapy for relieving their symptoms and improving their overall health may seek treatment more frequently if safe to do so.
Treatments require a minimum of three hours for the body to process the ozone, allow it to create reactive oxygen species and lipid oxidation products, and remove waste.
How Can I Facilitate the Work of Ozone Therapy?
Those undergoing ozone therapy can foster the success of the treatment by doing the following:
- Staying well hydrated, promoting blood volume and waste elimination.
- Taking vitamin C supplements to alleviate oxidative stress
- Consuming spore-based probiotics to stabilize the gut microbiome
By combining these supporting practices with consistent treatments, patients can fully realize the potential benefits of ozone therapy for their immune, cardiovascular, and metabolic systems. To learn more about all the options we have available at Stemedix, contact us today!
