Ozone Therapy
When looking for ways to treat illness, it’s easy to turn to traditional strategies, like prescription drugs. However, restorative medicine techniques, like ozone therapy, take a completely different approach by triggering healing from within.

Ozone therapy isn’t new. In fact, European hospitals and clinics have used this treatment for more than 50 years, and it came on the scene in the United States in the early 80s. However, it’s gained more use in recent years and continues showing promising results in healthcare.

Unlike traditional medical treatments, this restorative therapy uses medical-grade ozone to renew and regenerate the body at the cellular level. Simply put, it helps activate your body’s natural healing processes. 

At Salutem Bio-Performance, Inc., our team values the personalized approach to health and wellness that comes with restorative medicine. Instead of addressing your symptoms alone with medications, it takes your lifestyle, environment, and genetics into consideration when preventing and treating disease — and that includes restoring your health on a cellular level with methods like ozone therapy.

Here’s what you should know about ozone therapy and its many potential benefits.

How ozone therapy works

Ozone therapy uses medical-grade ozone gas for therapeutic purposes. 

When inhaled, ozone is harmful. However, when it comes in contact with bodily fluids, it can increase oxygen in the body and trigger reactions that produce more red blood cells and proteins. Research is still underway, but there’s also some evidence that ozone therapy could inactivate unhealthy processes in the body, like viruses, bacteria, and other infections.

To harness the healing power of ozone therapy, providers usually administer ozone in three ways:

  • Directly into the problem area, like a wound
  • Intravenously
  • As an intramuscular injection

Depending on your ozone therapy treatment, the gas could get mixed with a sample of your blood or oxygen in advance.

The benefits of ozone therapy

Research into ozone therapy shows great promise, and our team has seen results firsthand. We recommend this restorative treatment for numerous issues, such as:

  • Breathing disorders, like COPD
  • Diabetes, especially diabetic foot ulcers
  • Immune disorders
  • Chronic pain

Ozone therapy could also provide relief from arthritis pain, delay joint degeneration, and improve range of motion.

What to expect from ozone therapy

If you’re a good candidate for ozone therapy, we can provide personalized instructions on how to prepare for your treatment. In most cases, this simply involves getting a good night’s sleep before your appointment, drinking plenty of water, and eating a healthy breakfast in the morning. 

When you arrive for your appointment, we may need to draw blood to prepare your treatment. However, ozone therapy usually has little to no downtime, and you can resume normal activity immediately.

For the best results, we might recommend a series of ozone therapy treatments. Many people feel the benefits immediately, but it can take days or weeks in some cases. We can offer more personalized timeframes based on your health and overall wellness.
