What is Ozone Inhalation Therapy?
Ozone is formed when oxygen atoms (O2) are split and and recombine into a triplet molecule (O3).
This is accomplished by running oxygen through a generator, which agitates the oxygen atoms, thereby splitting them apart.
How Does Ozone Therapy Work?
Disease and aging are caused by our cell’s decreased ability to utilize oxygen effectively. Ozone therapy works by enhancing the body’s utilization of oxygen, which enables us to:
– better fight infections
– slow down cellular aging
– modulate the immune system
– enhance natural detoxification processes
– and much more!
Isn’t it dangerous to Inhale Ozone?
Inhaling pure ozone at large concentrations for an extended period of time can cause lung damage. However, in ozone inhalation therapy, we bubble the ozone through organic, extra virgin olive oil. We are thereby inhaling ozonides and terpenes, which are the medically beneficial molecules found in olive oil. We can hereby enjoy the health benefits of ozone without its lung irritating effects.
What Should I Expect when I am getting Ozone Therapy?
Take deep, slow breathes in through your nose and out through your mouth. It may burn and be slightly uncomfortable in your nostrils and you will experience a stale smell. It is normal to feel “buzzed” and to experience minor lung irritation. There will always be a staff member available to assist you.
