What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone therapy is a method using ozone gas, which rapidly turns into oxygen when it comes into contact with the body. This process creates a mild oxidative stress in the body, which activates the body’s defense mechanisms. As a result, antioxidant enzymes are activated and the affected area is enriched with ozone and cleansed of toxins.
It is very important to determine the correct dosage for ozone therapy to be effective. Medical use of ozone, which can cause toxic effects at high concentrations, must be carried out under expert supervision and control. Patients should be closely monitored throughout the treatment process.
How is Ozone Therapy Applied?
The method of ozone therapy is determined taking into account the type of disease, its severity and other factors. It is generally preferred in the treatment of circulatory system disorders, diabetes-related angiopathy pictures, viral infections, immune system problems, inflammatory musculoskeletal diseases and rheumatologic problems. This method of treatment is most commonly carried out through a systemic approach called “major autohemotherapy”. However, minor autohemotherapy, rectal insufflation, direct intra-arterial and intravenous applications may also be preferred depending on the disease state. The purpose of each is to support the body and promote healing.
