Ozone Therapy is the use of ozone gas to treat different diseases. Ozone is used as a disinfectant so it can be helpful in the treatment of wounds.
Ways of administration:
There are following three ways of administration:
- Direct to the tissues:
Ozone is directly applied to tissues. It acts as disinfectant and thus inactivates bacteria and viruses. This process is suitable for treatment of wounds especially for the extremities.
- Intravenous :
A blood sample is taken from the patient and ozone is mixed with it. The blood mixed with ozone is then injected into the patient. It is used in conditions like HIV.
Ozone gas is mixed with oxygen and then administered into the body intramuscularly. It is suitable in conditions like diabetes.
Rectal ozone may be able to improve clinical (oxygen saturation and oxygen demand), laboratory (decrease in markers of inflammation) and radiological (Taylor scale) variables, as observed in this case.
Treatment with intravaginal ozone therapy may be helpful for these patients with chronic, repeated and refractory vulvovaginitis to usual treatments.
How is it helpful?
It is helpful in many ways. Ozone when comes in contact with the tissue protein, it interacts with it and thus stimulates the immune system. This will strengthen the immune system and help the body to fight the disease. It is a strong disinfectant so it stops the growth of bacteria, viruses and fungi. It also helps in healing.
It is helpful in diabetes, HIV and lung disorders.
Is it effective?
The answer is yes. Some research has shown that it is effective and helpful but still the evidence is limited. More controlled trials are required to prove its effectiveness. The use of ozone is very specific according to the condition of the patient.
Ozone is a very unstable gas so it cannot be predicted. It can react with the molecules inside the body and can cause toxicity.
The use of ozone is dangerous because if it is inhaled it irritates the lungs and nose. This irritation is very uncomfortable and sometimes causes suffocation.
The concentration of ozone injected intravenously is of great importance, slight increase or decrease would change the whole story.
