Every time you breathe, incoming oxygen moves to your lungs and gets passed on to your blood. The cells in your body need oxygen to convert food into energy to sustain you. Given how vital oxygen is to your health and survival, many people have turned to ozone treatments to give their bloodstream an extra dose of oxygen. At Knox Wellness Experience, our professionals offer IV ozone therapy, which directs a high concentration of oxygen directly into your bloodstream. Read on to learn more about this exciting therapy.
What Is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone is a molecule composed of three oxygen atoms. When ozone in gas form is transmitted intravenously, it is believed to have therapeutic benefits. By going directly into the bloodstream, the theory is that oxygen can be more potent for the body than by passing through the lungs.
Having extra oxygen could improve your circulation while boosting your immune system. Some research has connected ozone therapy to stimulating white blood cells and fighting viruses and bacteria. Our patients have also seen their skin improve after ozone therapy, such as a reduction in acne and eczema.
Combining with Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation
At our facilities, we almost always combine ozone therapy with UBI (ultraviolet blood irradiation) to amplify the immune system’s response to treatment. UV light shines on the blood to further boost circulation and ward off disease. UBI is considered to be better at dealing with infections, while ozone therapy builds your body’s strength to prevent future illnesses. This can be a supportive therapy for Lyme Disease and mononucleosis (EBV) infections.
Who Should Try Ozone Therapy and UBI?
Since both treatments are relatively new, research is still emerging on the efficacy. Scientists have already begun to explore the kind of benefits ozone therapy may have on patients with diabetes, immune disorders, and breathing disorders like COPD, so it is possible that it will become a more mainstream treatment in the future.
Already, some of our patients with chronic health conditions swear by the positive effects of ozone therapy, returning for periodic treatments to maintain their wellness.
Try Ozone Therapy and UBI
Oxygen is vital to life. While you may be limited in how much oxygen you can take in through your lungs, there is no easier way to receive an extra dose of oxygen than with intravenous ozone therapy.
