You may know ozone as the gas that surrounds the Earth’s stratosphere to protect us from the sun’s ultraviolet light. Ozone has also been used as a form of alternative medicine for decades to treat a variety of conditions. The list of uses for ozone therapy continues to grow as we discover the numerous benefits it offers.
HealthFirst administers ozone therapy to patients as a safe alternative to other treatments when the benefits can significantly improve the body’s healing. Dr. Jonathan W. Singer specializes in alternative medicine to provide unique, effective care to patients.
Common uses for ozone therapy
Ozone therapy was initially used to disinfect wounds, but it has proven to improve the immune system, as well. Since then we have discovered many uses for ozone therapy, making it one of the most versatile therapies at our disposal.
Some of the conditions that ozone therapy improves include:
- Infected wounds
- Diabetic ulcers
- Circulatory disorders
- Lyme disease
- Rheumatism and arthritis
- Viral diseases
We use ozone therapy to successfully help treat many conditions.
The benefits of ozone therapy
The research into ozone therapy continues to grow, especially as solutions to respiratory conditions and immunoresistant bacteria are at an all-time high demand. Ozone therapy can help you by:
- Strengthening your respiratory system
- Inactivating bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and yeast
- Stimulating your immune system
- Improving your circulatory system by cleaning arteries and veins
- Relieving pain in wounds and fractures
- Limiting stroke damage
- Reducing abnormal heart rhythm
- Improving brain function and memory
Ozone therapy can even reduce the risk of complications from diabetes.
Applying ozone therapy
Although ozone is a gas, it can be applied in many forms depending on the condition you seek to address. Ozone can be used in what’s called ozonated olive oil, which is applied directly to the body to promote wound healing.
To treat internal organs, ozone can be applied intravenously. This helps the gas reach several parts of your body when treating HIV or any blood disorder.
HealthFirst also offers ozone therapy through injection. Injections are the best way to target joint problems or lower back pain. Dr. Singer mixes the ozone with some of your blood, then injects it back into your body.
Is ozone therapy safe?
Ozone therapy, when applied correctly, is a safe procedure that offers many benefits. Because it does have some side effects, you need a highly trained doctor like Dr. Singer who has extensive experience using ozone therapy to treat patients.
