What is IV Ozone Therapy?
The oxygen you breathe contains two oxygen atoms. Unlike this form, ozone contains three oxygen atoms—it’s a supercharged version of oxygen. Ozone is precisely what gives the atmosphere its blue color. In the medical setting, this gas is useful for treating a variety of conditions.
Many worry about the safety of ozone. If you breathe this gas in or use it in extremely large amounts, it can be toxic. However, your ozone therapy practitioner will administer the gas in safe doses into your bloodstream. Medical grade ozone has an incredibly safe track record.
In fact, our bodies actually create ozone naturally. Our immune system’s white blood cells create ozone in response to illness or disease.
How Does IV Ozone Therapy Help Me?
Regulates Your Immune System
Ozone works to regulate your immune system in a powerful way. When your immune system attacks your body, the gas works to calm an overactive response. As you may already know, autoimmune disorders are one such example.
Similarly, when your immune system fails to protect your body, which is the case with an underactive immune system, ozone can help stimulate a response. Cancer is one such example of an underactive immune system.
Why does ozone work so well? It acts on the membranes of your white blood cells and prompts them to create cytokines. Cytokines are proteins that regulate your red blood cells and other immune system cells.
Improves Blood Circulation
Ozone helps improve the flow of liquid blood throughout your body. That allows more oxygen carrying hemoglobin to reach your capillaries. Ultimately, your cells will receive more of the oxygen they need to function properly. Those suffering from chronic inflammation tend to experience poor circulation.
Increase Your Intake of Oxygen
The gas stimulates an enzyme by the name of diphosphoglycerate, known as DPG. DPG helps in the release of oxygen in order for your cells to take it in. Without DPG, our cells cannot receive enough oxygen altogether—this is a frequent problem for those with diabetes.
What Conditions Does IV Ozone Therapy Treat?
IV ozone therapy helps treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Heart disease
- Circulatory disorders
- Chronic infections (such as herpes or Lyme disease)
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Autoimmune disorders
What is Prolozone® Therapy?
Prolozone® therapy is an injection treatment that uses ozone to regenerate the body. Like ozone therapy, this injection therapy uses this supercharged form of oxygen. However, Prolozone® specifically targets conditions that cause pain in the body. The treatment helps rebuild damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons for full healing and an end to pain.
How Does Prolozone® Therapy Help Me?
Many of us have lingering pain resulting from an injury that did not heal properly. Why is it that some injuries heal completely and others don’t? The issue largely comes from a lack of proper blood circulation. For your body to heal, you need vitamins, minerals, and oxygen.
Oxygen is the most critical part of this trio. Little to no oxygen causes lactic acid to accumulate in your tissues—and this acid is precisely what causes pain. There are three steps to a successful Prolozone® therapy treatment:
1. We begin by increasing circulation in the injured area. In order to do this, we must decrease the amount of swelling and inflammation in the injured area. To accomplish this goal, your practitioner will inject homeopathic anti-inflammatory medicines into this area.
2. We continue by improving healing. Your practitioner will treat the area with vitamins and minerals that promote rejuvenation.
3. We end by using ozone injections in the injured tissues to continue boosting circulation and healing.
What Conditions Does Prolozone® Therapy Treat?
This treatment is effective for any condition that causes pain, including but not limited to:
- Neck pain
- Lower back pain
- Herniated discs
- Plantar fasciitis
- Carpal tunnel
