Ozone therapy is the treatment of some disease or problem using medical ozone gas. ozone therapy; metabolic, hormonal disorders or diseases, acute or chronic inflammatory diseases, COPD and some other lung diseases, chronic intestinal problems, delayed wound healing, diseases with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, sleep disorder, detox, antiaging and many more It can be applied to many problems.
Ozone is a triatomic oxygen compound, the third most powerful oxidant found in nature. A substance that can be harmful at high doses can be therapeutic at very low doses. This biological principle also applies to ozone gas. A highly diluted (5% ozone + 95% pure oxygen) ozone mixture is used in ozone treatment. This medicinal ozone mixture has therapeutic properties.
After ozone gas comes into contact with the patient’s tissue (blood, mucosa, skin, muscle, joint space, etc.), a series of chemical reactions begin. As a result of this reaction, the body’s natural antioxidant system is activated. And with repeated treatment sessions, the capacity of this antioxidant system is strengthened. The natural protective mechanisms in the body are activated and the capacities of the detox organs are increased. The destruction of toxic substances, damaged cells and microbes makes a significant contribution to their removal from the body. With the effect of regulating metabolism, it provides a general recovery not only in the problematic area but also in the whole body.
Ozone therapy draws attention especially with its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal effects. These effects occur in a dose-dependent manner through oxidant, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory mechanisms. In these days when we are experiencing the Covid-19 pandemic, ozone therapy has come to the fore again due to these effects.
The Covid-19 virus is a lipid-rich envelope-containing virus. Ozone therapy is particularly effective against such enveloped viruses. It shows its direct antiviral effect from areas of the virus that are vulnerable to oxidation. Ozone damages the virus by disrupting the virus-cell contact and interrupts the reproductive cycle. In addition, it also supports the natural immune system by strengthening the body’s detox capacity. With all these effects, it can be used both in the protection against covid-19 infection, in the treatment process of the infection, and in the treatment of chronic undesirable changes due to previous infection.
