What is Ozone Therapy?
Ozone therapies are a group of treatment methods which improve oxygenation and promote healing of many conditions. Ozone (O3) is a highly charged oxygen molecule with increased oxygenating properties. Ozone therapy involves mixing small and carefully controlled amounts of ozone and medical grade oxygen and then introducing the mixture into the body by various means. While other countries outside the U.S. have been using it to treat a wide variety of ailments for years, it's often considered a very touchy subject in the U.S., especially by the FDA.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine states in "Ozone Therapy: A Clinical Review", that "Ozone therapy has been utilized and heavily studied for more than a century. Its effects are proven, consistent, safe and with minimal and preventable side effects." To read more, click here
