You might have heard of ozone therapy. You may even have tried it. But what exactly is it?
Ozone therapy is the process of regulating ozone gas (O3) into your body to treat wounds and illnesses. Essentially, it’s an antifungal and antibacterial therapy that’s been practiced for hundreds of years.
Ozone is used as a highly effective detox to treat a wide range of illnesses and conditions. Best of all, it doesn’t involve any medicines or chemicals, making it extremely safe to use.
So, what is ozone exactly? It’s a therapy that invigorates oxygen circulation and utilization. During a treatment, the O3 is mixed with oxygen. This encourages your cells to produce their own energy during the treatment.
A typical detox session takes around 30 to 45 minutes.
The comfort level of an ozone therapy session depends on the type of treatment you have. If you’re undergoing an ozone steam session in the pod, there is no discomfort whatsoever. However, you may experience slight discomfort if you’re getting ozone via IV, for example.
The discomfort is short-lived, though, and you won’t experience any pain.
No matter how your ozone is administered, there is a myriad of ozone therapy benefits to be had, such as:
Ozone therapy is even proven as a useful way to treat circulatory disorders, arthritis, and even cancer.
How many ozone sessions you need to treat your condition will depend on its severity. For a general detox and energy boost, 3 consecutive sessions are recommended.
How the ozone is administered also depends on what you want to treat and what your therapist recommends.
